We selected this hotel after considerable research and fellow traveller reviews and to put it in a nutshell- we were not disappointed!.
Location is excecllent - right next to the Makkasan Sky train station to airport. Very Close to the Baiyoke, pratunam and all the great malls like Pantip, Platinum etc. On the way to these places we found some excellent street food, local bargains on clothes and shoes.
The hotel itself is very good. You have to take an escalator to reach the lobby. The staff is friendly and courteous. The have displayed the TRIPADVISOR badge on their front desk..:)
The lobby was quite big and spacious. The buffet area, bar and restaurants were nicely decorated . For a four star, this hotel beats many Five stars in India.
The rooms are reasonably big. The superior rooms dont have much of a view, but the executive rooms give an excellent view of the complete city, unhindered by any buildings.
I had only two issues against against the rooms :- One was that their layout is very poor thereby giving very little space to move around. The beds are placed right in the center of the room with a headpost, doubling up as a desk, for the telephone, remote controls to the room lighting and tv (yup, the entire room utilities can be controlled by a controller .. pretty neat), The second issue was that the bed linen was torn and inspite of telling them, no effort was made to change it. The four stars would've been five if they had addressed the issue about the linen.
The breakfast spread was excellent but remains more or less the same , so you feel bored, but the quality is excellent. Right from eggs to order, to cereals, breads soups, rice and curry, potatoes ... eat a good meal by 10 am and the next time you need to eat only in the evening :)
Wifi is free across the hotel. the pool is big and really great. The gym is well appointed.
Tea/Coffee sachets, water heater, Hair dryer, electronic safe, drinking water etc are all complimentary with the room. Check out process was also fast but they did create some issues with a small plate (which was taken by their night staff but not informed to the desk). that did leave a slightly bad taste marring the entire experience a wee bit!!
Highly recommended for stay in Bangkok.
