My partner and I had three nights in this hotel and it was excellent. I was bit worried after reading some of the reviews on this site, but I found all of those that were negative to be untrue.
On arrival- after a very long flight from Glasgow- we were delighted to see how plush it was. There is a doorman on duty 24 hours (it feels very safe and secure), and your bags are delivered up to your room. Check-in staff are friendly.
Service was of a very high standard. The staff were happy to advise on excursions and how to pronounce Thai words.
We had a superior room, which was gorgeous. Lovely big bed with excellent linen and a Thai silk throw. The dressing gowns and slippers were never off! Cleaning was thorough and thoughtful- our toiletries were laid out for us (I'd left them in a bit of mess round the sink). There is a window into the bathroom- which seems to be the thing in Thailand as our other hotel had the same- but there is a blind to spare blushes.
There is a pool and gym. We didn't use the gym, but the pool was spotless.
Wide variety of things at breakfast, which was run with freindly efficiency. Food and drinks were not expensive by UK hotel standards, but a bit pricey for Thai standards. However the bar/ restaurant was very pleasant and everything was served to a high standard. There are loads of wee stalls on the main street selling all manner of snacks.
The hotel is beside a Skytrain station (about £1 for most journies, the booth will give you change but tickets are from the automated machines) and 5 minutes walk from Central Plaza and 15 minutes from MBK (home of knock off designer goods!) and Siam Central. Siam Paragon (for real designer goods) is about 10 minutes. Paragon has an excellent food hall- but it is bigger than you think, so keep hunting about. Night market for sounvenirs 15 minute cab ride.
The hotel will call you taxis which are really cheap, about £2 for 20 minute jouney. Most drivers don't carry change so you'll need small notes or coins.
In short: fantastic and very comfortable room, friendly and helpful staff, great location.
Only tiny niggle is they charge for internet access- £4 for 30 minutes. No big deal though.
