I don't like to stay in my room a lot so the fact that they are pretty small does not bother me so much. There wasn't a balcony which I would have enjoyed because the hotel has great views of the river and sunset.
However I cannot praise their location enough. You can walk to khao san road which is a great nightlife experience and it is a half football (American) to a pier 13 where river taxis can take you to the palace, many temples and further down to China town or Asiatique. Taxis are cheap too. Usually only costing $3-5 to get to the shopping district with MBK or Siam centers, from which the sky train can take you further.
There are so many hotels in Bangkok that I would like to try more of them for a basis of comparison but I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to explore Bangkok.
