This is a wonderful hotel to stay in Bangkok. The staff are friendly and accommodating and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. Rooms are modern and spotless with excellent Wifi. Breakfast at this hotel is just NOT good. They have a small breakfast area on a terrace which is in the open and the bees were attracted to everything on the breakfast table. They do try to put out some sweets to attract them away, but this is only partially effective. As a result bees everywhere when you are trying to get fruit or anything sweet. The breakfast itself is quite poor. On one day there was some bacon and eggs and sausage on a bay maree, but it was not heated, so everything was cold. Cereal was corn flakes and some sort of chocolate concoction. There was toast though. On the next day, it was sandwiches! They need to get their breakfast right to be a truely good hotel. Most days we went away having had only coffee.
The area of Bangkok where this hotel is located is not well serviced by restaurants. Cab rides are only cheap and it was no problem getting a cab somewhere, but one night going to China Town none of the cabs wanted to bring us back. Whether the fare was too little I don't know, but we ended up in a Tuk Tuk in the rain which was the only way we could get back.
Overall a very good hotel which could be great. Fix breakfast and maybe have a list of good restaurants (other than Thai!) would be an advantage. Remember like anywhere in Bangkok, if you are going anywhere, leave a lot of time as the traffic jams are horrendous!
