You would expect that the room which you booked would be ready when you reach, however we reached at 1530 hours, though the usual check-in time was 1400 hours, and the room was not ready yet! Had to keep going to the reception to check the status, however their 10 minutes did not get over in about 45, and then when I started getting a little annoyed because I had my 15 month old baby getting cranky, we were given the keys to a room which was almost 50% of the size of what I had booked!
I figured that only when I did not find the hot plates which were a part of the room as per its standard features! The hotel staff during these first two hours acted as if they were doing me a favor by letting me stay! Did not like it at all!
We were given the keys to a different room about 20 minutes later (this is almost after and hour and half of me arriving at the hotel) which was finally the room that I had booked originally!
Great room, lots of space, and good house keeping staff. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same thing about reception staff though!
Legacy Suits is located at a walking distance (<10 minutes) from two Sky train stations. You should, however, go towards Sukhumvit Station where you have an option of the MRT as well. A decent massage parlor as well at the corner of the Soi, so you can walk back to the hotel, freshen up and go for a food massage!
A 7-11 and some other stores are nearby too!
Some more pointers :
If you take a cab from outside the hotel, they would mostly give you a flat fare to your destination. At times this flat fare would be very reasonable, at a condition that you would first go to a Jewels showroom before your destination! Add about an hour of extra travel time, but if you have the time, this does make sense!
Also ask the hotel for a metered cab if you are going to the airport or are not keen on taking the cabs from outside the hotel (who would mostly push flat fares)
Overall a good experience, and value for money as well! Would definitely stay here again, however would keep my fingers crossed that I don't have to go through the same check-in experience.
