A good hotel. Very well located. Great value for money. No views, but then most BKK city hotels don't have a view. Check-in was slightly discourteous. Check-out clinical as always. So this hotel also fails my "check-out acid test".
The staff is just what a 5-star hotel staff should be. Not an iota more. So can't compliment.
4 minute walk of Phloenchit BTS. You walk in the open for 2 minutes, and then slip into a building which is then connected to the BTS. Very helpful when raining.
The breakfast spread is mediocre with very slow and sloppy service.
The room is bare minimal and run down. One sad socket to charge phones. Bathroom not what shows in pictures. Concierge took 30 minutes to get luggage up.
Highly unstable wifi. Very irritating. Makes you log in every few minutes.
The rooms are cold. No warmth. Bad lighting. Green color tone is depressing. I had the junior suite which was good sized but never felt like I was at home. It felt like an airport lounge. Some place you want to get out of ASAP.
On checkout, I needed my luggage to be stored for a few hours, and also needed a larger taxi than usual, so I ended up talking to the concierge manager. This had to be the worst moment of my whole stay.
I would typically never take a name, but here I must say that Mr. Damrerng was an extremely rude person and he spoilt my mood to an extent that I would probably never return to this hotel.
Hotels make a grave mistake in mistreating people as they are leaving. They need to understand that this is the last thing they remember.
