Stayed at this hotel on our very first trip to Bangkok, May 1st to May 4th 2013. It proved to be an excellent base for our exploration of the city due to its proximity to the Asok BTS station. Really, the hotel's location is its greatest asset. Not is it only located a mere 2 minutes from the Skytrain, it is also near the excellent Terminal 21 mall (lots of unique shopping and great cheap food). Furthermore, it lies on Sukhumvit road, which is filled with hundreds of roadside stalls selling a vast multitude of items, as well as countless food options should you venture out.
Other than the location, the hotel excelled in cleanliness. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless when we arrived. Beds were clean and comfortable, and the AC was powerful and kept the room cool from the oppressive Bangkok heat. The bathrooms were also functional and clean, and the shower had good water pressure. I will say though that the room was a little too small for my tastes. It felt almost claustrophobic at times. The wifi was fast but there were random times when it would stop working, which added a tiny bit of frustration as that meant we would have to venture downstairs to get a new username/password code.
The staff were all very polite and friendly, and were ready to help with whatever necessary. Their attitude really elevated the hotel in my eyes.
Keep in mind that this a no-frills hotel, which means that unless you book a bundled deal through Agoda or a similar site, you will have to pay every day for wifi, AC and television. Might be a bit off-putting, but it is what it is. I highly recommend Tune Asok, and would definitely stay there again if I'm ever in Bangkok
