My friend suggested S31 Sukhumvit because of its perfect location. I checked Agoda for deals and was very pleased with the rates I got for 2 nights. I booked myself a deluxe room via Agoda.
Unfortunately, I forgot to specify that I required a room in a no-smoking floor because I am asthmatic. Upon reaching the floor the front desk assigned me to, I discovered right after exiting the elevator that it was on a smoking floor. I didn't bother entering my room and went straight back to the front desk to request for another room. They had run out of deluxe rooms in a no-smoking floor but upgraded me instead to a Junior Suite. I was very pleased with this, considering that they could have pointed out that I did not specify my room requirement during my online reservation.
The hotel is located at the corner of Soi 31 and Sukhumvit, and is just a stone's throw away from the Emporium Mall. It is very near the Phrom Phong BTS station. S31 itself is a quiet street lined with good spas so you need not spend too much on the hotel's own spa services.
Breakfast is good enough. Not bad, not great. But I wouldn't complain. There was sufficient enough to choose from.
My main problems with this hotel:
- While they offer wifi for free in the rooms, they don't really work. As I was there in Bangkok for a very short holiday, I really didn't miss the wifi. But I think that would be a pain for those who need wifi because they want to work on the bed instead of the desk.
- I was also bothered by the blue light coming from the cable box. With the black out curtains drawn, that tiny blue speck of light can be bothersome and you will have little choice but to pull the sheets up to cover your eyes.
