When you're travelling with kids and you have a long term stay, you need an apartment not a hotel room. Chateau de Bangkok just fits the bill. We booked two one bed apartments and one of our apt was upgraded. The upgraded apartment was bigger specially the bedroom was much larger and very spacious. The decor in both was similar. This is not a fancy apartment but nice and clean. Furniture and fixtures are dated. For example the TV is still the old CRT TV. Everything looks old in design including the wooden flooring but this is not to say it is bad or an eyesore. Infact it is quite pleasant but just bear in mind it is not fancy (someone else described this as soulless - that defines it pretty much). The apartement is centrally air-conditioned and the airconditioners are fantastic. This is welcome as you enter your apartment after a hot muggy day in Bangkok. They have a full kitchen with utensils, stove, water heater which is a boon when travelling with children. I got this apartment for about USD 50/night which makes it an exceptional bargain (without breakfast offcourse). They have an excellent pool on the 12th floor with a jacuzzi and a nice view of the Bangkok skyline. The restaurant on the 2nd or 3rd floor is also excellent and not at all overpriced.
The hotel is centrally located, about a 7 minute walk from the metro, two 7-11's close by (less than 5 minutes walk) and a bigger grocery store about 10 minute walk from the hotel. Siam Paragon, MBK etc are just a 50 THB taxi ride away(about 3-4 KM). Bars, restaurant all within walking distance of this property. Taxi ride to/from airport will cost THB 700.
The big problem is they allow only 1 kid per room. We had two rooms so we didnt have a problem with our two kids but I think considering that the apartment is so big (maybe about 750 sq.feet), they should allow 2 kids and the provision of an extra bed at a small charge. You cant really book 2 rooms and split up with your wife just because you have two kids. I think that is silly considering the apartments are so spacious. Otherwise I highly recommend this for the price, value and location of this property. If they allow two children in one room, I will go back to this hotel.
