This hotel opened end of 2012 [as we were told by the taxi driver] and everything looks brand new. It takes about 25 mins by taxi from the Suvarnabhumi Airport at THB 270 + Toll THB 70.
The hotel is in a residential area surrounded by high rise condominium and it is about 8 mins walk to the nearest BTS station. They provide free tuk-tuk service to the station every 15 mins until about 10pm thereafter it becomes a long walk to the hotel from the station on a very quiet road. Nonetheless after 4 nights, we found that it was safe to walk.
It is centrally located at ploenchit BTS station - about 15 mins walk to Asok [for shopping at Terminal 21] and about 10 mins walk to chidlom BTS from where we could walk to Platinum Fashion Mall, Central World and from Central World all the way to MBK thanks to the covered walkway.
We had a superior one bedroom suite for 5 days 4 nights at THB9970. We stayed at room 610 which is next to the highway but the room was quiet and with the window/balcony door property closed, we did not hear any noise at all. The breakfast provided was nice initially but from the 3rd morning onwards, we were bored as there was no change in the menu except they rotate the fried rice / fried koey teow / fried mee.
We also took the free half day tour to the grand palace with transport and guide provided by the hotel [entrance fee THB 500 per person was excluded] which we enjoyed very much.
It is a very nice hotel for family with young children as there is swimming pool of good size and in the room, there is a small kitchenette comes with a fridge and a washing machine.
Our only annoyance is that the house keeping forgot to replace the bath towel for 3 consecutive days and we had to call the housekeeping at 11pm to bring the towels
