1) Location - on Sukhumvit Road smack bang in the middle of the action. Soi Cowboy, foreigner oriented bars and restaurants are very close.
2) Large nice hotel lobby.
3) Very clean.
4) Good service at front desk and from bellboys.
5) Reasonable pricing. Got my room for less than AU$100 from a wotif.com mystery deal.
1) Taxi drivers loitering out front - tried to hire one to take me a short distance. Was told the place I wanted to go to was closed (a lie) and then driver tried to convince me to go elsewhere. This should not be allowed to happen at a five star hotel. Similarly, on the way to the airport the driver refused to put on his meter and asked for a flat 400 baht fee - I was too tired to argue over it.
2) Bellboys - they expect to be tipped for bringing your bags up. This is a relatively new thing for Bangkok. Slightly annoying considering it is not a local custom, more an opportunity by staff to fleece foreigners who the see as walking ATM's.
3) Small rooms.
4) No balconies.
Overall, a great place to stay if you are in transit and want to be near the action. Would not recommend for a luxury stay, it is simply not geared towards that.
