Me and my wife stayed there last December 2012.
The hotel is located in Chinatown, on a main boulevard, which is convenient. It's about 20min away from the Main train station (Hua Lamphong). It seamed reasonably safe walking from the station to the hotel at around 9pm even though the streets were dirty, smelly and filled with weird people selling stuff, sleeping on the curb, cooking or whateva' else. They seamed harmless, but looking back on it I'd recommend getting a Tuk-tuk instead of waling to the hotel.
The hotel is big and once I'm sure it have been a moder and even luxury building, but now, after 18 years of service and almost no renovations it seams a bit worn.
They have this weird rule for a 1000 THB deposit for the room which they give back on check-out. I've seen this elsewhere as well, but it wasn't stated anywhere on our reservation so it was a surprise for us and very inconvenient as well.
Other then that the rooms are big enough, reasonably clean (no bugs at all), but again - very worn.
The room service (the meals) was just ok, but on the good side they had a big screen TV and a security box.
