We stayed here at the start of our trip, and liked it so much we booked it again for the last two nights we had in Bangkok after visiting the south. The rooms came with our flight tickets so it was a very pleasant surprise!
The building is clean and modern, and the staff very friendly and helpful. They even remembered us when we came back, which was really nice.
Our room, a superior one, was large, clean and fitted out with everything - TV, AC, DVD, fridge, etc. We didn't want for anything.
It's a great location, just around the corner from Khao San Rd, so you're right in the middle of things without being too much in the middle of things.
The one drawback was the noise. This is mostly due, I suspect, to the fact that the room had a small balcony which was accessible through a shutter type door, so even if you close it, there's still plenty of gaps for the noise to come through. Why they didn't put a normal door in is beyond me. However, we used earplugs and it was fine. It's not deafening at all, it's just when it gets late, the bass goes up and it's just definitely there.
The cheaper rooms are on the other side of the building and have no windows, which might make it a bit concrete-box-ish, but then - I presume - would mean you have no noise at all, and considering how much time you actually spend in your room while in Bangkok, it might have been wiser to take one of these. Then again, we didn't see them so can't say for certain.
We really liked this hotel and would definitely stay here again.
