“Very average hotel!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

The location of this hotel was very good and breakfast has a great selection of food to choose from. I felt like i had been deceived by wotif as i purchased this room as one of there Mystery deals but as it stated that it was 4* i felt that i should get something quite good. We were put in tower 3 which is lucky to be of 3* standard, the bathroom is extremly small and has mold in the tiles, the sheets on our bed the first night were thread bear and on the second night the top sheet had a whole in it. It was a right royal pain in the backside having to walk across the road to get breakfast each morning. I think you could find better value in this area and wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't stay in tower 3

The best part was the helpful concierge staff especially Theerat, Chief Concierge. He gave us info on tours, places to go, tailor for having clothes made. Breakfast was good.
It was located near a supermarket(we had a kitchen in our room), restaurants, & BTS line which goes to shopping malls.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main tower are better than the other towers.

Wonderful stay, stayed at tower 3 but value for money! Wonderful choice of breakfast, a very happening street of Bangkok! Of course, the rooms were little worn out and old but what you pay is what you get! It was clean, and that is what matters the most!Definitely recommended for family!
Even had Indian Menu for Breakfast.

Room Tip: Tower 3 is basic, choose tower 2 for a little more!

Best positive aspect of this hotel is the location: on Soi 11, centre of the fashion nightlife in BKK (BedSupper, Q Bar, Climax, etc), literally 3minutes walking from BTS Station and very close to all the shopping malls too (5-10min on the BTS line).
Being in Asia, this is not the typical 4* hotel, however is very good value for money. I had booked the Deluxe Suites: located in the Tower II, 50 sqm, clean, well equipped, doublewindow so absolutly no noise from the busy Soi outside. Tower II has its own pool, always sunny (this is something not soeasy to find in BKK) and Cafe11 below, good for a drink before heading for better and busier places.
Downside was the 1st impression: when I arrived my room was not ready and I had to wait 3hrs before getting it. Truth to be said, I got 1free drink every day of my stay due to this and a free upgrade on the next visit.

i was given tower 3 which housed the standard rooms...the room was large but it looked very tired & old...the tiles were worned out old fashioned ones..the room did not look elegant at all...it looked like a budget hotel...everything was working in the room...the aircon was very very cold..hot shower available is throughout the day but the shower stream strength is very poor...it just trickled...i stayed 4 day 3 night...everyday the buffet breakfast was 99% same...there is nothing worth mentioning about the buffet breakfast as every food is old fashioned enough..

the front line staffs need to be sent for training on how to smile as most did not care to smile or greet people..especially the males...they seem too arrogant...i judt don't know how this hotel is rated 4 stars....in vietnam even a 3 star hotel is much much more better...

i denitely will not recommend anyone to stay here or even if i am were to go bangkok again i will never set my foot into this damn old , tired hotel whose staffs attitude is down the drain. Perhaps they think the westerners & middle east tourisst are the best humans in the world & treat asians very poorly

Room Tip: don't take tower 3 , there are no people to assist you there except for security guards...no rec...

The property is older but in decently good shape. Pool and wireless in every building. Careful: standard rooms are located across the street, accessible through an alley and not in the much nicer towers housing the reception and deluxe suites.
Service was good, front desk friendly- too friendly it turned out halfway through my stay: my girlfriend who was not a registered guest came to visit me, gave the front desk my name and was handed a key to my room without having to show her id or me being consulted. Giving strangers keys to someone's room breaks every bit of security procedure and decency in my opinion. The girl could have easily stolen everything I had in the room without leaving a trace.

Room Tip: Stay away from tower 3
