My fiancee & I stayed at the Loog Choob during May '13 as part of our 3 week trip around SE Asia.
We flew into Bangkok, so spent 1 night at the Loog Choob before heading up to Chiang Mai on the train. We organised to have our train tickets delivered to the Loog Choob, which were presented to us upon arrival as expected - a good start!
We then spent 3 weeks travelling around SE Asia before returning to the Loog Choob for 2 nights before flying back to the UK.
The rooms were perfect - comfy bed, but most importantly excellent air conditioning!
The owners spoke perfect English, and were more than happy to recommend local places to eat, call a taxi, recommend places to visit etc.
As other people have mentioned, grab a beer from the fridge downstairs and pop onto the roof for a birds eye view of Bangkok.
When I come back to Bangkok, I'll be coming back to the Loog Choob!
