I stayed at SSIP for two nights recently with my girlfriend and absolutely loved it. I had visited Bangkok many times in the past and always stayed in a variety of hotels closer to the touristy shopping area (Silom/Sukhumvit). At SSIP you get a truly unique Thai experience that isn't colored by the standard tourist lens. The building itself is beautifully restored and decorated with colonial furniture from the early 1900s, taking you back in time the moment you step inside. The rooms are very comfortable and all of the linens and furnishings are top notch (we slept extremely well). The service is quite personalized (my girlfriend wanted to buy a grater to make papaya salad and one of the women went to a local market near her home and picked up three) and you'll feel like you're in good hands the entire time. The highlight by far though is the Thai breakfast, which is unlike any of the standard hotel buffets you see at most Western hotels. It's made to order and there are plenty of delicious savory and sweet options (see attached pictures). While the hotel isn't situated close to the BTS, it's a short walk to the river where you can take a boat ride to the Grand Palace, Wat Arun, Wat Pho, etc. Also, taxis are rather inexpensive in the city (even when they try to rip you off it's not too bad, especially compared to most Western cities).
All in all we highly recommend SSIP!
