I booked V Residence based on good tripadvisor rating.
Unfortunately I cannot recommend as highly as others.
My room was being cleaned when I arrived after 3pm. When I eventually checked in the room was polluted with air freshener. When the smell of that spray wore off I realized why they had used so much - the room smelled bad. At first I thought it was just smoke - yes the room was supposed to be non smoking but clearly others had smoked in the past (not surprising as 90% of customers appear to be Japanese men). But the smell was more than old stale smoke....something smelled bad.
The shower fluctuated between extremes of hot and cold. Annoying.
The wash basin in bathroom only had one tap (neither hot nor cold). Not good for shaving which needs warm water.
Breakfast was ok but limited. Worst thing was staff grabbing everything from the table as soon as I put it down. Now I appreciate this may be an attempt at good service - but someone needs to train them that being so attentive is detrimental as it leaves the guest with no cups, plates, cutlery to have more food/drink.
One small elevator for a hotel this size really does not work, causing long waits.
They should add some sports channels on TV. Only catering to mainly Japanese tv channel.
Having said that it does the job and has many good features, with laundry machine in the room and a good location near Emporium and Phrom Phong BTS.
Based on the cost I can't recommend as there are better places in that price range. In fact if you look out for the deals offered by the 5-star hotels you can book them for $10 or $20 more than V.
