Before traveling to Thailand, I saw an advertisement about this new hotel but couldn't find any review. The temptation was big but I was afraid of ordering without reading reviews before. Therefore I ordered rooms at the "Samran Place" (good hotel). It happenned the the Samran was fully booked so we needed to change the hotel. This was the best thing that could happen. We went to see the Grand Watergate and we (2 couples) felt sorry that we didn't order there from the beginning. Let's start: The hotel is new, modern style. The crew is extremely nice, specially the front desk lady. The rooms very clean, spacious, excellent air cond, all new. The breakfast is simple but tasteful. I loved the fact that they serve cream with the coffee, delicious. Superb location, just 5 minutes walk from the Pantip Plaza (with your back to the hotel, turn to the left). By the way, most of attractions are at this direction. 3 massage parlours very close, Tip: choose the one that looks better from the outside, you'll see, this is the best of them (I've tried all). Also very close to Burger King, Pizza Company, Seven Eleven. If you turn to the right from the hotel, you'll get inside Pratunam, find laundry, more 7 eleven and markets. For me this hotel is a real little gem in the heart of Bangkok, I just hope they will keep their soft opening prizes. TIP: Ask before about double beds because if I'm correct, they don't have already double beds in the deluxe rooms, so ask about it. We stayed in standard rooms but believe me you don't need more than that. This will be for sure my choice again in my next time in Bangkok. I hope my review will help you, if I had a review before my trip, I would choose this hotel from the beginning.
