To start out this is my 3rd vacation in Bangkok/Thailand and have stayed at many hotels in Thailand over the years. The location is top notch. It in the center of all action but quiet enough to get sleep when you need it. Very close to Skytrain which is a big plus.
The hotel is old, but has be renovated. My room had a air conditioner leak so I was getting wet going in/out of bathroom.
The staff were friendly by could not speak a lick of English which compounds any problems I had. I received someone else's wake up call very early one morning and never received the call I was looking for another morning (good thing I was already up and about or I would have missed my fight.) I was also charged for a towel which was damaged (ripped and stained) and placed in my room by the staff. They ordered me to pay 300 Baht and I ended up paying 150 Baht.
I was to meet a friend at this hotel. He was arriving later the day. When he arrived he found his room had been rented away and he ended up staying at a hotel all the way at the end of Soi 8 (1km away). He had booked his room with credit card and through travel very established travel website but that did not matter to the staff (who couldn't speak any English). Talk about frustrating.
