Stayed at this hotel during October 2007 with a couple of friends, we each took a deluxe room. The place is simple, clean and very very modern from the lobby all the way to the rooms. Don't get too deterred in the Soi that its in, which could happen if its your first time in Bangkok. ;p
The staff are very very friendly and extremely helpful and speak English just fine. Upon arriving, they settled our reservations that we all made online at their website swiftly and we were then taken to our rooms. As mentioned, very very clean and was happy with the rooms the moment we entered. Not small at all. For BHT800 a night this was more than what we expected and a bargain too!
TV, fridge, not much of a view though because its only a few stories high, but that's not important at all as Bangkok isn't a city where you would want to spend all day in your room anyways. Breakfast is included, which was simple, you had a choice of chicken or pork sausage with eggs, baked beans and toast. Coffee, tea and orange juice. Taste wasn't bad at all. Again, friendly staff to greet and serve you.
Location wise, fairly close to everything, there's a 7 Eleven and Burger King just around the corner of the hotel which makes it convenient. Taxis are very easy to get there too which was the main mode that we used to travel everywhere. ;) Also, there are some good massage/spa places just out of the hotel, clean, decent and completely professional. No seediness here! ;p
All in all, enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend others to stay here if you're looking a nice place to stay for your trip to Bangkok.
