The fact that I really just disliked Bangkok very much coloured my experience of our stay there. However, I will say that this was a very clean, nice, large hotel with what seemed to be a nice restaurant downstairs (we didn't try it) and centrally located to Bangkok CBD. We enjoyed sitting around by the pool having cocktails. Our main complaint location-wise was just that the street was poorly lit and the hotel itself is somewhat removed from the main drag of pubs/stripclubs/street vans etc and we were followed home by a man and were very relieved to run into the hotel right as he was closing in on us! Also getting the shuttle van into town is completely pointless, it was promoted to us as if it would do a bit of a tour of the CBD but it just drives you up the road a few blocks and at daytime this was unnecessary.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend a stay in Bangkok CBD but if you have to stay overnight en-route or for business then this hotel will give no complaints.
Note: We actually travelled early January, 2011 but TripAdvisor won't let me select back that far.
