I can see why this place received good ratings from other travelers. Room was sufficiently big for the price I paid and receptionists were very helpful, I had some unpleasant experience in Bangkok, but receptionists were extra helpful to sort it out (or well at least trying)
However, it fell short on a couple of major points.
Location- I seem to recall other people calling it "great location". I disagree unless majority of hotels in Bangkok have "great locations". The place is not that close from the BTS station ( I say at least 10 minutes walking if you don't get lost and feels like 30 minutes after you come back from sightseeing). You can't really cab it either since its not so close to tourist sites if you look at the map of Bangkok and notice it's on the opposite corner. By all mean, it's not in "bad location", but I wouldn't call it a "great location' either.
Hot shower (or lack thereof): Bangkok is burning all the time, so naturally I took frequent shower. I never got hot water in the shower, not once. Granted, cold shower wasn't so bad in Bangkok, but I generally prefer hot shower so it was a little disappointing.. Not sure if this was just the issue with my room though.
As for the rating, I would give it 4 star.. has some good and some bad, but at the price I paid, that's something I am willing to accept.
I would stay again if I were come by myself again..
