Located just up a quiet alley near Wat pho, with amazing balcony views of Wat Arun. I really enjoyed this position as it was easy to access most things but nice to come back to the quiet retreat and enjoy the views over the river. 1stly stayed in a Delux room where we had requested an extra bed. When we arrived we were surprised to find that the extra bed was actually the couch. However it was comfortable enough and everything in the room was good quality and the views over the river were lovely. After some travels, I returned to the hotel because I loved the location and this time was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to the Suite room, It was a great room with a big balcony with a swing seat and outdoor setting and beautiful big window with full view of Wat arun. This was a great retreat for my last day in Bangkok. The staff were lovely but sometimes there were not staff speaking good english, particularly at breakfast time. The breakfast was average but adequate. There was breads, fruit and juice and a choice of cooked meals from a small menu. Because there was building happening next door causing noise during the day, they gave a voucer for a free meal at the Deck restaurant which was very kind. The noise stopped early anyway. The Deck restaurant is great.
