We stayed for three nights at Adelphi Suites over NYE in 2013-4. As this was our first time in Bangkok we didn't really know what to expect, but we had decided to splurge for our stay over NYE and so we chose Adelphi Suites Bangkok.
The staff were helpful and cordial upon arrival, and we had arranged a pick-up from the domestic airport (which I felt was slightly overcharged, but it was nice to just be able to bundle ourselves into car rather than bartering with drivers outside the airport!). We stayed in an Executive One-Bedroom Suite which was spacious, beautiful, with a touch of modern elegance. We had a large living room area with a kitchen and washing machine with the bedroom attached. The bathroom had a shower and bathtub separately and was brilliant - our first power shower since being in SE Asia!
As it was our first time in Bangkok, we gradually discovered that we were staying a in really ideal area. Sukhumvit is an incredibly long road that goes on and on and on, which has something to suit everyone whatever your budget. In the evening the roads were bustling with night stalls selling everything from knock-off Ray bans to sex toys, street food set-ups and pop bars, as well as your crowds of white tourists and lady boys. It was very lively in the evenings and also being on Suhumvit you can easily catch the Sky train to get around the city (cheap and quick!). The hotel is also not far from Little Japan where you can have the best Japanese food outside of Tokyo, and little Korea is a 10 minute walk away from Nana Station. We were spoilt for choice for food and bars in this area, we were very lucky to have been able to stay here for our introduction to Bangkok!
The old town where the main touristy things are (i.e. Wat Arun, boat trip to floating market, Chinatown) is a quick sky train journey away. The hotel is not exactly close to these areas, but it's easy enough to get there and not too expensive even if you go by tuktuk. I did not have a problem with the location of the hotel at all, it was nice to be able to go to the touristy areas in the day and see the city and then get away from the hordes in the evening for a more chilled vibe.
Breakfast was a buffet in the downstairs restaurant that is linked to the hotel, called Monsoon. There were many different choices of dishes to suit both the Western and Thai palate, I did not have any problems with it and enjoyed a hearty breakfast every morning.
I would recommend this hotel to any first time visitor to Bangkok who has some cash to splash on accommodation with a willingness to explore the more modern side of the city.
