Stayed here for the first time this trip to Bangkok. I thought the location would be a little irritating because it is on Rama 4 which is a main road - it's very busy. However the hotel is right next to the Lumpini MRT (underground train station) which actually makes it very convenient for getting around the city. The staff are amazing - very friendly and helpful. The room (I got an upgrade to suite without asking!) was perfect - great views, clean and comfortable. For a very reasonable price you can get real luxury here. The breakfast was also great! Only downside was the slight buzz of traffic noise but this is a very minor issue.

Room Tip: Better higher up for good views and less traffic noise.

It was a great thing that this hotel was recommended by a collegue because it was only a 5-minute walk to the Q-House where our office was located. I know how bad traffic is in Bangkok, so if I could avoid taking public transportation to work, I would take that option. The hotel is also not very pricey, so it is a better alternative than Sofitel which on the other side of the road from Q House.
The hotel room was spacious and clean, with a comfortable bed and pillows, so rest after a long work day is not a problem. There are not enough dining or shopping options nearby, but is convenient to go to Silom or Sukhumvit via the MRT which is almost next door to the hotel. If you happen to like Thai street food, you would be able to sample a few in the morning or afternoon from the makeshift stalls that pop up just around the morning and afternoon rush hours.
It's a good hotel choice, and the only fault I can think of is the breakfast, which I only tried on my last day, since there is Starbucks in Q House so I'd always grab a cuppa and a croissant on the way to the office everyday. There were not much options in their buffet and I was glad I didn't miss anything by skipping that the entire week I was there.
The staff were very polite and helpful.
I would not mind staying there again for business, but probably not on a holiday.

Location is great! Friendly staff and one stop away to Patpong. Good Chinese restaurant just few steps away. Very convenience to access around shopping district in Bangkok. Hotel is located nearby Lumpuini Park

This is not the best place to stay if you want to be close to Bangkok's nightlife, but is so close to a MRT (metro) station that this becomes a non-issue.
The rooms are big, and they have a lot of attention to detail. The breakfast is a winner, with lots of local cuisine as well as typical, western items.
The pool is good, and offers a nice view of part of the city.
I was very happy with this hotel.

Thank you for staying at AETAS lumpini on your recent visit to Bangkok.

It is true that the hotel is far from the Bangkok’s Nightlife places but the MRT subway station “Lumpini” providing the easy access throughout Bangkok with connections to Sky Train.

Centrally located near MRT subway and Lumphini park, it's a short walk or ride to Si Lom and Patpong delights! For me BKK is more of a shopping and partying destination than sightseeing per se, and this hotel is right in there. Executive rooms are huge and well appointed with big comfy bed for great sleep and large bathroom, some with jacuzzi. Little details like fruit and flowers in rooms bring a smile to this guest's face. Small gym, and great infinity pool on 9th floor with views while you swim! I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Higher floors have great views, executive rooms are huge, some with jacuzzi

We did have some hiccups with our package (not picked up at the airport and no booking at AETAS Bangkok) but on arrival at AETAS Bangkok these were sorted and we went to AETAS Lumpini. Communication between the two hotels was obviously good because at Lumpini we received a genuine apology and room upgrade that quickly erased our previous frustrations. We hadn't really made a plan of what to do with our only full day but the concierge gave us a plan using the subway (50m from the hotel), the skyrail and the river. The Grand Palace and shopping were the order of the day. A tuk tuk ride from the GP back to the subway was great fun. The subway and the skyrail were exceptionally clean and efficient. We started paying per ride but suggest you get a day pass for each (separate operations) at around 150 baht each. This just means hassle free riding. Ticket in the machine, ticket out. The Skyrail has another line with other options but we ran out of time to use it. Keep in mind that our experience was with minimal planning and minimal time but it worked for us and relatives who followed shortly after us enjoyed it.
The hotel itself is great with great staff. The WiFi was perfect and appreciated after a substandard service from our hotel in Chiang Mai. Unlike previous reviews I have seen on TA, the "included" set dinner in our package was great. Our only disappointment was that when we elected to use the restaurant again the following night were there were only 8 choices of a meal in a set menu. We ordered only to be told there were only 2 of the options left. One of those ended up being the worst piece of beef I have tasted and I could not eat it. The restaurant was not busy and may not have the ongoing patronage to have a viable menu.
That aside the quality of room, service from staff and location for us at the time was perfect.
PS After our "hiccup" of not being picked up at the airport on arrival (one way only) we travelled to the airport from the hotel in a limousine for our travel to Koh Samui. In hindsight it was better to do it going to the airport rather than leaving it. Karma I suppose.
