Good hotel between the American embassy and the residence of the American ambassador.
The hotel staff is helpful, but knowledge of English language is not 100%.
Not perfect, but recommended place to stay, among the best in Bangkok. Personally I am not very fond of this area, I find it cold with too much concrete and asfalt, and certainly too many cars. Most cafes/bars/restaurants here will be in this or other 5* hotels = not cheap. If you look for outside ambience this is not the place. A plus: the Lumpini park near by is very nice, also for your morning run.
If you are looking for the famous Mandarin Oriental hotel by the river: this is not it.
