We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of Feb 08.
The hotel was in a great location, near enough to get the river boats at Thewet pier (10 min walk). You can get to the Grand palace via the river boats and also to the sky train which takes about 30 min on the boat but only cost 15 baht each.
It is only a 15 min walk to Khao San Road in what seemed a safe enough area. Regarding busy roads to cross on the way to Khao San Road, this is to be expected in Bangkok.
The room was small but comfitable, the air con and fan were a really bonus due humidity at night.
The breakfast were unique but were very enjoyable.
The whole place had a very relaxing atmosphere and the staff were very polite and helpful.
The free internet was a bonus.
Tip: Print off location map from hotel website, as this will help the taxi's at the airport to find it.
We have stayed in other hotels in bangkok in the past, since staying here we would now not consider anywhere else.
