We booked this as a cheaper alternative to staying somewhere more upscale tourist-y after reading a bounty of reviews for places to stay. We stayed in a one bedroom which was perfect for us- had its own clean bathroom, couch, tv, kitchenette & bed (typical Thai-style-hard bed). Everything was clean and in good, working order. Took us a day to figure out the power supply (when you remove the key from the wall it turns the power to the a/c & lights off) so we thought the power had gone out (whoops!) but it was just us :) Our room was facing another building, so there wasn't much of a view, but the nightlife on the street is crazy all night (slows down around 4/5am?) so we were thankful we didn't have one overlooking the street. We could hear the nightlife, but it wasn't ridiculously loud. Keep in mind, though, we are young people who don't mind the noise! I might not recommend for older, troublesome sleepers. The pool on the roof isn't super large, but we only went up once and there was only one other person up there, so it was perfect for us. I would think it might be irritating if there were more than 6 people using it (I think that's how many chairs they have set out). The apartments also had free wi-fi, which worked well for my older iPad but not very well for my newer iPhone 5. Also, the mini fridge was restocked with bottled water every day which was a nice touch.
The building is connected to a restaurant which has great happy hour prices. We purchased free breakfast vouchers with our apartment reservation, and the restaurant downstairs is where this takes place. I would suggest this, however, the food choice was the same every morning and it became bland after 4 days of eating it (I think the menu was: choice of egg, choice of meat, choice of bread, choice of side OR pad thai OR fried rice). I would suggest bringing your own bottled water to this, as they did not seem to have bottled (only mystery ice water).
We did not take advantage of the free tuk-tuk services, because we preferred to walk. The street felt pretty safe compared to some other, nicer streets in Bangkok, and the walk to the BTS is about 5-10 minutes past some great street food and restaurants (and a Starbucks!).
We only had one very minor complaint with the staff, which probably can't even be taken as a complaint since it is Thailand and we can't expect everyone to speak our language. The front desk staff was nice, but one of the staff members spoke little to no English and when he did not know what we were talking about he would just answer, even if it wasn't right. For example, my husband had some shirts delivered and asked if they had arrived, to which he responded no (even though it was a time-sensitive thing), but we later found out they actually had arrived. We had a similar problem with the wi-fi, but another staff member helped us the next morning. The rest of the staff were easier to talk to, and made a better effort to try and help us. Overall, it really wasn't a big deal.
