My mother and I stayed for 4 night over Christmas 2012. They had great hot showers but the water didn't drain fast enough so you were standing in a bath while you showered as the water filled up and up. It would take ages to drain. The rooms were what you needed but nothing more. Breakfast was average.
THE HALLWAY SMELT LIKE FISH DUMPLINGS!!
Hotel taxi drivers are so pushy. It's a 300B ride for somewhere you can go for 70B metered.
We didn't use the pools really.
Counter staff were really really helpful.
Restaurants are creepily quiet. Never saw anyone there.
If you need to check out in a hurry its not going to happen. Such a slow system.
Next time in Bangkok we will stay near khao San and the tourist area. The BTS sky train which was the drawing card for us really only takes you to the airport and the ferry.More
