We enjoyed our stay at the Ramada Sukumvit. The rooms are large as is the bathroom and modern. The pool is fair, but is in shade a lot of the day because of surrounding buildings. Unfortunately there is major construction going on next to the hotel that makes the pool area a bit loud with construction work. This is not the hotels fault. Bangkok is building everywhere. The pool/garden area is nicely done. The Ramada is at the end of Soi 12 so you have at least a 1/2 mile walk from Sukumvit. Not a problem going out as the hotel has its own tuk-tuk to take you out to Sukumvit. The staff is friendly and service oriented.
I would recommend you not using the taxis that park in Soi 12 in front of the hotel as they won't use the meter and charge at least double what would be on a meter. The hotel will radio the tuk-tuk driver to hail a cab from Sukumvit using meter. The difference for example 500 baht to the airport with the waiting taxis versus about 270 baht including tolls with meter. ($18 US vs $9.50 US) Also if hailing a taxi to go to the Ramada pronounce it Rom a da. lol We have stayed a many different hotels over the years going to Bangkok.
