I have stayed in more than 2 dozen hotels in BKK over the years from budget 500 THB rooms near Khao San to the high end Dusit and Mandarin Oriental. Of all of them, I found KC Place to have the oddest character.
It is located quite close to Baiyoke Sky down a narrow side street that no taxi driver seems to know about, although it isn't uncommon to have good places that appear to be down dodgy side streets in BKK. Although not on their doorstep, Pratunam market & Platinum is a 5 min walk away and taxis or tuk tuks to MBK, Central etc can be found at the end of the alley.
Clearly a renovated building (done well to be fair), the lobby is small but nice and the staff were pleasant and helpful.
It has key card access to the elevator & stairs to the "apartments" and also to each "apartment" or room, although the elevator starts on the 1st floor, so you need to walk up a flight of stairs...not very convenient if you have kids.
From the feel of the sheets, the curtains, door knobs, taps, shower power and even the toilet flush, they have clearly invested a some money to try and add some quality to the experience.
However it is offset by the rooms being small and the bathrooms ridiculously small. You'll literally have to sit on the toilet at an angle as there's no space and you will be making contact with the ceiling if you're over 6ft 3"!
The quality they have invested in is let down by some cheaper furniture such as the sofa they've manage to squeeze in between the bed and the balcony window (which you cant go out on to because the AC unit is out there).
The corridors carry sound incredibly well and you will get woken up by people coming in from a night out. If you knock on a door, people in the two rooms either side will answer and if you have a conversation with a door open, you will be heard at the other end of the corridor.
It wasn't a bad stay with KC Place, at the end of the day its just a room to lay your head at night (or in the morning!) but I know there are better choices out there for the price we paid.
