I've stayed at many Bangkok hotels over the years and wanted to try this on my most recent visit. I arrived at the hotel at noon hoping to check-in however was promptly reminded that check-in starts at 2 pm hence had to walk around a bit till the official check-in time.
Check-in was smooth. Room was very clean and bright however as reported by others there is very limited space in the room (the double bed fills up the bulk of the space) for large bags. Mine was an overnight trip hence I just had a small carry-on with me hence no issue. Toilet and shower area was of adequate size hence no issue. Not much space nor hangers for hanging clothes. No phone, minibar, kettle, cups in room. Again no issue for me as all I need is a clean. comfortable bed in quiet surroundings. This is after all a no frills hotel. Security/room access is good and lift/room entry is via card key.
It is good value for money if one isn't looking for the usual 4 or 5 star essentials. Access to the hotel from Asoke BTS is about 100m and the hotel is located in a quiet soi with lots of greenery and hardly any vehicular traffic - which is a pleasant surprise considering busy Sukhumvit Road is barely 100m away. It is easy walking distance to Terminal 21, restaurants, etc. lining both sides of Sukhumvit Road. There is a Baht 50 charge for storage of bags after the 11 am check-out. Free wifi access was very good in the room and lobby area.
Reception folks were generally polite and helpful. US$35/night all-in is a definite plus even without early check-in!
