We chose this hotel based on the reviews and photos, and were not disappointed. We opted for a 1 bedroom for 4 nights for our family of 3 which included a toddler. We arrived in the evening, check-in was a breeze and the baby cot requested was all ready.
Facilities wise, we wanted a kitchenette so this was equipped with utensils for light cooking. A few additional items would be thoughtful such as a kitchen cloth, dish washing liquid and sponge but housekeeping did provide after we requested. The washing machine was useful but there was no dryer so that was not quite practical after washing yr clothes and nowhere to hang them except in the bathroom. Speaking of the bathroom, there was a strand of what looked like pubic hair in the bath tub when we first arrived, and the tub did not look clean. Housekeeping certainly can do with some improvements in cleaning. An adaptor we needed was provided swiftly. Hot water was very efficient so be careful of the tap that heated up pretty quickly. In general the room was well appointed and pleasant although possibly dusty a little as hubby's sinus acted up the whole time we were there and the toddler was coughing and sniffling while indoors.
As for the other facilities, our toddler enjoyed the kids playroom very much, and loved playing the toys provided. The pool was small and the tiles did not make it inviting but our toddler enjoyed her dip nonetheless. We also thought the business lounge looked beautiful and chic, even better than the picture. Breakfast was not huge but adequate. We were not allowed to take away a few pastries for our toddler, which I thought was unreasonable as other 5 star hotels usually have no issue other than cautioning to consume any takeaway food immediately.
Location wise, we were a couple of mins away from Chit Lom BTS which is a stop away from shopping central at Siam. Along the way there's 7-11 (just across the street), a Starbucks and Burger King as well as massage salons and a variety of Western restaurants. Pavements are not meant for baby strollers so baby-wearing was a better option.
On another note, we used a car service called Oriental Escape for airport transfer as they quoted half the price of the hotel's luxury car service and threw in a child car seat at no additional charge. Be sure to wait at the exact location stated on the booking form, as we had difficulty locating our driver and had to call their hotline for help.
Overall, we had a pleasant stay here and will recommend it to other families with young children.
