We stayed in the Legacy Suites for the first week of our three week trip to Thailand and I can say that, without doubt, it was the best of the three hotels we used. I selected the Legacy Suites as a result of the reviews here and was delighted with the standard of the Deluxe Studio, which was sparklingly clean and spacious, had a good kitchenette, large bathroon with huge separate shower cubicle as well as a bath, settee, table and chairs and a king size bed. There was a flat screen digital TV with satellite channels. The range of channels could have been better, but this was a minor quibble. The pool is very nice and quiet. The staff were terrific, greeted us cheerfully at the beginning and end of the day as if they were really pleased to see us and were extremely helpful. The hotel is an oasis of peace and quiet even though it is probably less than 200 metres from the unbelievably busy and noisy Sukhumvit Road. Inside our room we hardly heard a thing, even from other guests either side of us or above. On the downside the tennis court badly needs resurfacing but I doubt that many people would want to use it in the heat. The hot western breakfast also needs improvement as it is rather restricted and was sometimes rather cool. The addition of just mushrooms and baked beans would make it better and the egg cook needs to understand that a fried egg "over easy" does not mean a yolk that is cooked for so long it feels like rubber. Having said all this the cold spread and fruit was absolutely fine and adequate. We were on the third floor and, unlike a previous reviewer, did not detect the slightest whiff of cigarettes either in or out of the room. We did, however, notice it in the corridor on a higher floor. I guess when choosing a hotel in Bangkok one can either choose a place that is around the margins of the old town or on the river Chao Phraya. The latter will of course attract very high rates. The Legacy Suites are in a great position for the Skytrain and Metro and have a much lower room charge. In addition, the Skytrain is due to open an extension all the way to the airport, so you will be able to miss out on traffic problems once that happens. For only about £52 per night we got bed and breakfast in a great hotel, in a convenient location for travel and a huge choice of restaurants and shops within 10 minutes walk. Try the Emporium Shopping Centre at Phrom Prong Skytrain station, with a choice of over 50 food outlets and restaurants plus numerous shops, including Boots the chemist. If we come back to Bangkok I would not even consider looking at other hotels. This offered possibly the best value for money I have found anywhere.
