Not a bad hotel just off of Sukhumvit Rd. I had a corner room and the only two major complaints, one is the shower, second is the lack of desk space. The shower had a broken slider and was a pain in the butt to keep in a fixed position. If the water pressure is set to high then the shower heard shoots up towards the ceiling, to low and things tend to trickle and shot straight to the deck. I traveled with a laptop and the small glass desk was minimal and a pain. Not much area left on dest for much else once laptop is in use. Not even desk drawers to hold accessories.
Minor inconvenience: 1-Wifi was lacking, 2-more hanging hooks in bathroom, 3-bigger room safe. The wifi was really slow so I went out and bought a mobile wifi unit and sim card and that fixed my internet problem. Bathroom had no wall hooks to hang towel of robe. Room safe was a bit small. Will hold an iPad size item but not a larger laptop like a Macbook.
The GOOD: Ramada Encore was clean and orderly. Room was always made up and in good order. Hotel security appears to be good. There are video cameras in all elevators and the elevators are access controlled, at least 4-5 video cameras on all floors. Emergency stairways were open, large and uncluttered. Reception staff was warm and receptive… minor language miscue but nothing a few minutes of readdressing didn't cure.
The Encore is approximately 200 meters off Sukhunmvit and not a bad walk to get to the clutter and noise of Sukhumvit. Soi 10 is narrow and can be a busy roadway with tuktuks and taxis streaming up and down the road. Soi 10 sits between two BTS platforms, Nana and Asok. Taxis/Tuktuk are easy to flag down but with the BTS so close,why deal with street traffic.
I would stay here again and really appreciated the location of this hotel. Getting around is easy and there was always a good cheap eats place nearby. Room price is nothing to complain about and staff was good.
