We stayed for 4 nights at the Citrus 13 and to be honest having read somewhere that it is classed as having been awarded 4* we were extremely disappointed when the taxi dropped us at its door. Although it is not a old building it is certainly not new and is located in a very busy Sol with little to no sidewalk making it challenging to get to the main road without injury.
The room (609) is small but contained all the necessary to make it a comfortable stay. However the windows are small and the electric lighting so inadequate that I abandoned any thought of applying even the most basic makeup.
Having said that it is situated between Nana and Asok stations making it very easy to get about.
In the past I have stayed in the Aspen Suites on Sol 2 and I would suggest this as a much better option if you are able to book in at a comparable price.
Finally a word of warning to those who are not familiar with the touts in Bangkok. Trust No one that approaches you in the street offering you any form of advise or help no matter how immaculate there dress may appear. They will tell you that places are closed/ open later or anything that comes to their mind ( in particular jewellery being sold tax free which is little better than pretty costume items being sold at sky high prices) so that they can get a commission. They will wave down a would be cheap tuk tuk so they can take you to these shops.
Keep in mind that there is no such thing as the Lucky Budda and if it sounds to good to be true then there is no doubt that it is
