We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of a long trip and found it a peaceful, relaxing and reasonably well located property.
We had the deluxe room, with the private patio, which was lovely, but it was thoughtful, personal touches, like the Mac in the room, which set the property apart from some others we have stayed in Bangkok. If you like the Khao San road areas then this is a perfect balance because it is less crazy, but still only ten minutes walk. Furthermore it has more of a local feel, which also sets it apart from the sex tourism orientated ghettos, like the 4/5 star hotels on Sukhumvit. We also discovered our new, favourite eating experience nearby, on Soi Samsen 2 (Joke Pochana) which served amazing food to both tourists and locals at very reasonable prices!
We walked, and used taxis to get about, as it was some way to Skytrain, Metro and Piers (remember to bargain hard for a flat price, or make them put the meter on-do not be afraid to walk away as there will always be another taxi just around the corner).
The staff were amazing, getting up with us at 4 a.m. to check out and get a taxi for us to Don Muang, so I would say this place deserves serious plaudits for 'going the extra mile'. Our only reservations were the slightly limited breakfast, and the fact that it is perhaps a little more expensive than superficially comparable B&B/small hotels. (This may be a result of long term inclusion in the Lonely Planet).
