Decided to try out this brand-new hotel (I think it was opened in late 2012) after reading the positive reviews on tripadvisor; and we are glad that we chose it! Everything's new; though the rooms we got are not very big, but they are clean and the beds comfy. The greatest thing about this hotel is the location; just 3 mins' walk to Asoke BTS and Sukhumvit MRT! As most travelers who have been to Bangkok would have known, the traffic in the city can be quite terrible at times; taking the BTS/MRT may bring you to your destination faster than taxis. So if you plan to hang around the major shopping malls which are mostly accessible by BTS, this hotel is perfect.
The buffet breakfast is served on the 35th floor; great view of the city through the glass windows, but the spread is nothing special to shout about.
Just 2 comments: first, not all of staff at the front desk speak English. When we couldn't find the tea/coffee making facilities in our room, a guy whom we spoke to couldn't understand us. We were informed by his colleague who heard us that they were placed in a hidden cabinet beside the fridge; and second, there are no slippers provided in the room, so do bring your own!
