Well, actually, the room was fine and pool and breakfast were okay. However, I booked this hotel because I thought the location would be convenient to the airline train. On the map, it looks like it is fairly close, but in reality, I wouldn't want to haul my luggage from the hotel to the train station again.
When I checked in, they requested a 1,000 THB deposit. I don't really have a problem with this, however, they didn't give me a receipt for it, which I don't like. The next morning when checking out, I really can't recall if I got the 1,000 THB back or not.
This hotel has the same problem as many Thai hotels on all levels of service, they don't air condition the lobby and hallways. When walking in from outside, it feels worse than being outside because the air is stagnant. But as I mentioned, many hotels in Thailand do this.
The room we got was pretty nice. It has a place for a kitchenette including a sink, and a microwave, but no stove. However, since we had breakfast included we were not planning on cooking ourselves so was okay with that.
The pool was refreshingly cool. This is because it gets no direct sunlight during the day as it is nestled between two large buildings. I liked this, others may find it a bit too cool.
When we went to check out, we discovered that there were very few taxis going north on Asoke towards the airlink station. After waiting for what seemed like ten minutes, we decided to walk. This wasn't a terrible walk, but with luggage, the steep steps up and over the canal were painful, not to mentioned crossing some side streets. When I got to the station fifteen minutes later, I was soaked in sweat.
All and all, I thought the hotel was nice, but the location wasn't doing it for me so I don't plan to stay there again.
