I chose this place to stay in Bangkok for its proximity to a BTS station and for somewhere that's clean, safe and hopefully quiet to get over jetlag after arriving in Thailand. It was easy to get to from the airport, BTS all the way and then a 5-10minute walk depending how much luggage you have with you! First impressions are good with a large, clean, open reception area. The girls on reception are very friendly and she handed over my train tickets straight away that we'd ordered for our trip, very impressed how easy that was and that they had actually got to the hotel! The security is reassuring, you have to swipe your room key to get to the lift and stairs to the rooms and we had a safe. The room we had was a basic double, not huge, but had everything we needed with a decent shower.
The location isn't really somewhere for tourists to wander around, there is a market but it's more for locals buying their produce for cooking. The BTS station for the river ferry is only two stops away, that's a great way to get up to the grand palace.
Breakfast is good, a nice array of cereals, cakes and fruit are out to help yourself to, as well as juices and hot drinks. The night before you can fill out a form at reception for you're 'main' breakfast which can be anything from cooked egg, sausage and bacon, to a prawn salad or a thai noodle or rice breakfast dish. This isn't extra so I'd recommend ordering it everytime.
The only downside to this place is the location. It is on a busy main road, this affected our room as we looked over the front at the road, I assume rooms at the back to be a lot quieter. It's not the hotels fault that the Thai people don't care what time it is when they sound their horns or play music loudly out their vehicles... Also the location as I've mentioned already is quite a way from the main attractions and we like to wander about more than have to get loads of buses or trains everywhere. We had a nice stay, but might choose a place in a different area next.
