“Great location and room but that was it.”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

If I only had to review the location, this hotel will have 5 ratings. By far, this is the best located hotel I have ever stayed at in bangkok.

less than 5 mins walk to the BTS station, 50 baht tuk tuk away to platinum and pantip plaza, you can walk but paying 50 baht is worth it. One station away to the airport link, again location is great.

The room is ok, no windows but not a big deal.

Breakfast is disappointing, I would rather pay for a room only price than with the breakfast.

Staff, as expected in Bangkok hospitality I guess, they are just there to check you in. No smile, no thank you when you leave, no enjoy your stay, no call us if there is anything we can help you with. Nothing. We didn't expect much from them anyway.

The pool, is a bit of a laugh. It's located in the entrance o the reception, by the bar in front of their parking space. There were people who swam once in a while during our stay but the location of the pool is just plain awkward.

Will I stay here again, yes because of it's location. But will pay for a room without breakfast.

It was very good located, near a skytrain station and airport train link (combine 1 station to get there), same train to chatuchak market. Near shopping center, 10 min taxi to main city atractions like Grand Palace, temples, Kao San Road.
It has a very nice design, though if you look close the details are very poor, but that´s why is not so expensive...so it´s ok. No windows in room, but it wasn´t a problem, we wanted to sleep, there no interesting view, air was fine, no smells, and no noises.
Reception staff almost doesn´t speak english and not very helpful when you try to make contact, but later I´ve learn it´s the same in every hotel in Thailand (some people are really really nice too... you find both).

We chose this place to try out another neighborhood in Bangkok and the photos looked amazing with respect to the price. However, the hotel is in a parking lot and has a tiny pool in the middle that I doubt anyone ever uses. We were surprised that all the rooms have NO WINDOWS. The rooms are clean, but very small. The photos of the hotel are accurate but without the context of the hotel's location it can be a little misleading.

The good thing is that the hotel is in a very good location, as it is close to the BTS train station and walking distance to Siam Square. Also, the surroundings are very local, interesting and have plenty of cheap food options. There is a Japanese restaurant next door to the hotel that appears to be the place to be for Japanese food. We did not have time to check it out, but it was always packed and the parking lot was always full of the customers' luxury cars.

Bottom line: There are better boutique hotels and serviced apartments in Bangkok for the same price.

Room Tip: There are NO WINDOWS at this hotel, so if you like sunlight it will be difficult to choose a good ro...

Easily accessible to both the Siam (Siam Paragon/Discovery Centre/MBK) as well as the Platinum Fashion Mall areas, a 1-2 min walk from BTS. Only a couple of stops to Chatuchak Market. There is a sushi bar in the hotel that is both fresh and reasonably priced. "Sushi Musa". A 2 bedroom suite is excellent for the family with a living area to congregrate. the 1 bedroom I'm told are a little small with no windows. (but seriously who needs windows if you are out for shopping all the time). The bed and pillows are comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a 2 bed room else on the higher floors as the groud floor can be a little noisy

The room is nice but crammed, there are no windows so you lose your feeling of time, Don't choose this hotel for the swimming pool as it is very small and along the parking area, I have never seen somebody actually swim in it.

There is however one plus point, it is right next door to the best Japanese restaurant I have ever been to, There are always queues there but they can call you in your room when they have a free table.

-Walking distance to the Pratunam fashion and IT malls.
-Walking distance to Siam Paragon and other upscale shopping centers.
-Short commute to the popular city temples and the Grand Palace.
-Short ride to patpong bargain center and redlight district.
-Restaurants and bars right below the BTS station.
-Helpful, courteous, polite staff who's more than willing to go the extra mile to assist you.
-Well appointed rooms and comfortable beds.
-5 minute walk to the Rachatthewi BTS station.

In short, Bangkok is an awesome city, and knowing that you go home to this lovely hotel at the end of every tiring day is just an awesome complete experience.

The plus point for this hotel is its proximity to a BTS station (Ratchathewi Station) at the Asia Hotel, which is just diagonally across. The room we stayed at was basic, on the small side but had chic touches like the floors and deco. There were no windows but that didn't bother us as there is no view to speak of and the noise level from outside is reduced. We still did hear a blaring of loud music at around 8 am and we were told that it was from a school nearby.
The people working at the reception were not especially friendly and most of them it seemed had only the most basic English proficiency at best.
For a short stay, this hotel is perfectly alright with its convenient location. 7-11 is close by and also a very good restaurant The Tree House,frequented it seems by mostly locals.
(Note for travelers with walking disability/handicap: This hotel does not have an elevator/lift.)
