Stayed at the CityPoint Hotel in Late October and then again in early November during a 3 week trip to Bangkok in 2012.
Well located. It is within very short (like 5 minutes or less if you are not walking fast) from the Asoke BTS station. Terminal 21 mall is at the Asoke station as well and if you want a taste of the west (think modern American style) mall you got it. We did not so walk a little further up Ratchadapisek Road and there a a few great food-stall type places as well as great food vendors.
Clean and modern. This is a boutique style hotel that is very clean, well laid out (it is every bit as clean and nice as the pictures you see on internet) and there is a laptop compatible safe, freee in room water bottles, mini-refrigerators and comfortable, beds. My wife wants me to mention the soap smells really great in the bathroom and shower as well (it does). Oh, they have really new and super powerful A/C in the hotel. Be careful, we put it on full power 19 degrees celcius and went to sleep happy and woke up with it sooo cold in the room it was funny. When it says cold it is NOT kidding. Think Antarctica.Also the breakfast has fresh juices, nice ceral and toast and typically one asian style dish for walk up. If you would like to sit down they will make you eggs,ham,bacon etc for full american breakfast as well, but again, go eat on the street if you can.
For the price and loction it is great, only drawback, and it is minor, is that is it located off a small sidestreet about 150 feet from the main road. It is no problem at all except that nearly no driver seem to be able to find the location without calling them to ask were it is at or by giving them one of th handy taxi cards with the location, phone number and directions in Thai and english on them. It does help cut down the street noise at night and that kinda evens it out if you ask me.
I would not hesitate to stay here (still here now for 2 more days after 2 the first visit and this visit is for our last 4 in Bangkok).
Hope this one helps you out and for the love of it all, eat at the food vendors in Bangkok. Yes the food is as good as it looks and I am a total caucasian westerner from Texas and have not gotten sick once. The food is sooooo good and fresh and the people are so nice. Do what makes you feel good but why fly all this way to Thailand and eat at McDonalds or KFC right?
