I stayed at the Twin Towers Hotel with my wife during a 6 week trip through Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
We booked the hotel through www.latestays.com and received a "buy two nights and get on free" deal.
Upon arrival I was surprised at how "upmarket" the hotel looked, especially as it is located on a dingy street, directly beside the expressway overpass. Not the most scenic of surrounds.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, and made every effort to make sure we were looked after.
The room was nice looking on first inspection, although it did smell very musty. Possibly due to the fact that it was located on a smoking floor! (Something we are not used to at all in New Zealand). The hallway did indeed smell very smoky as well.
The size of the room was good, being nice and spacious. The bathroom could have been cleaned a bit better, as there was some long black hairs still clinging to the bath tub.
The pool are is very nice as well, although we found the pool to be the coolest we encountered on our entire 6 wee trip through Asia.
The hotel Internet is massively overpriced, as is the taxi service offered by the hotel!
The tuktuk and taxi drivers that wait around the front of the hotel to pounce on you as you walk out the door also charge WAY too much, as they think because you are staying in a "flash" hotel you are either stupid or can afford their ridiculous prices.
My advice is to walk a block or two away from the hotel before you flag down a tuktuk or taxi. Trust me, you will find the prices much more reasonable.
There is nothing really within walking distance if this hotel except maybe MBK which is about 15-20mins walk away.
After our 3 nights we moved to a hotel near Kao San Rd, where there is much more to do, better restaurants and markets and much better prices.
I would only recommend the Twin Towers Hotel if you were in Bangkok on business or were not interested in exploring the city at all.
