First of all - the kindness and professionalism of the personnel is outstanding!
Mr. Witt, the reception manager, Ms. Poo and Ms. June at the restaurant were extremely professional, friendly and helpful.
I honestly don't know where to start praising the staff and the hotel....the rooms are big, modern, clean...beds are extremely comfy...the food is excellent (try their Phad Thai!)....
One night we came back to the hotel after 22.30 and the kitchen was closed. Waitress went outside on her moped and brought us a dinner!
The other day, a taxi brought us to the wrong address. We called the reception and Mr. Wit asked us to pass the phone to any pedestrian so that he asks them to show us the right way!
He called back to see whether we reached the desired address!
You simply feel taken care of in this elegant hotel.
The second day, the sink in the bathroom got stuck.
After we came back from breakfast - it was already repaired!
There is a beautiful terrace & a swimming pool right next to Chaopraya river. One can easily spend an entire vacation in this hotel.
The restaurant served delicious Thai food (at average Thai-prices).
The reception will organize any kind of sightseeing tours or transfers, from regular "meter taxi" to hotel's own car transfers.
A tip: The fastest way to get to Sauvarnabhumi airport in rush-hours is to take a taxi from the hotel to the Makkasan train station - City Air Terminal to hop on the Direct Express Train (where you can check-in your luggage for your flight) and it takes only 15 minutes to/from the airport.
