very nice, big hotel (29 floors) with a grand lobby in 2 floors. (reception was at second floor) a piano bar on the bottom floor with live music and song in the nights. i arrived early in the morning, but i could check in straight away, no problem at all. the hotel is directly connected with MBK shopping center, which was very convenient! i stayed on 28th floor, the view was of course very nice, overlooking bangkok.
the room was a bit old and worn. but ok for me. air condition was very good.
However, there was a bad smell in my room..and that was not ok. upon my arrival, i smelled cigarette smoke in my room...i called the staff, and they sprayed my room and put some kind of air-cleaning filter machine in there. the cigarette smoke disappeared but another bad smell (like sewers or something) came instead...and remained. i thought i should give it a few days to see if it got better...but the bad smell did not go away.
after complaining in the lobby i got my room upgraded to a bigger, more luxurious room on the same floor. nice. staff was overall mostly very nice and friendly.
the breakfast was fantastic with everything you could imagine and more.. gym was amazing, biggest i've ever seen, with 3 big rooms and all the gym machines imgainable. also an outdoor jogging area, pool, squash, tennis and badminton courts. (basically on the roof of MBK)
Except for the bad smell in my room, i would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in bangkok, long or short time.
