I have seen mixed reviews of this hotel and as we had been reading Trip Advisor knew that they were doing construction work during the day. Personally as we were out during the day so it didn't bother us. We loved the unusual and charming rooms, the four poster bed was really comfortable and I loved the silky robes. It was refreshing from the normal and bland room templates used for major brand hotels. But if that's what you want don't stay here. For the money, we paid $72 with breakfast via Agoda it was hard to beat.
Breakfast is served in what seems like an old ballroom with chandeliers and is light and airy, a nice place to start the day. A good selection of Asian and Western dishes.
The front desk staff were pretty uninspiring and characterless unlike the hotel itself.
The location is not bad, not far from the palace and near a ferry terminal but a bit further from the action of Sukhimvit road, but easily accessible by tuk tuk. It really comes alive at night with the outdoor seafood eateries.
It would be good to have a pool but for the price it is really good.
