Well..the location was great for me work-wise, and I loved that it was possible to walk in calm little alleys in he back in the evening with lots of food stalls. It is also about 10 to 15 minutes walk from patpong night market. as everywhere in Bangkok, it is at the very close proximity to a 7/11.
The hotel is a business one. It has tried maybe a bit too hard to get a European feel and as a result it is a bit oldfashioned, particularly the lobby with his grand staircases and cristal (glass?) chandelier But the rooms are nice, large and comfortable. The mattress was really hard but that a personal taste. The room had two mini bottle of complimentary water, as well as coffee and tea with kettle. The mini bar had super basic drinks, large safe, the TV had a few English speaking channels (news and movies). The in room service was perfect and the Thai food I ordered are really nice. I had lots of problems to connect to internet and the person who came to help did not seem to know much more than me. they have a business centre downstairs with internat access as well as a printer (but not cheap...)
The bathroom was large too with both a large shower and bathtube (a bit old looking but clean). There was hot water, pressure, it was clean, basic amenities were there.
The breakfast was good, a fair choice of things. Again nothing mega exciting but enough choice for any one to find something good.
Checking in and out was very fast.
Only real potential negative: in the first evening I had some very loud plumbing noise coming through the walls. it did not last too long and I did not hear any more noise after that...???
