We stayed in this hotel when it had just opened, so they had a few bugs to iron out with the service, however everyone tried to be helpful and was very pleasant. The room was a reasonable size and very nicely decorated with great equipment and furnishings, eg: flat-screen TV, comfortable bedding, good lighting, safe, drinks, tea&coffee making etc. Lots of big opening windows (but no balcony). The hotel has a pool but it is right at the front of the hotel and awkwardly located under the building overhang. The gym/spa facilities were not operating yet so can't comment. Only breakfast was served (no other meals) and the restaurant was quite compact but the breakfast was of good quality.
The hotel is in a quiet side-street, not far from Tha Phae gate and walking distance to night markets and Sunday market and restaurants - an excellent location. We needed just to walk out to the end of the street to get a taxi. We just had trouble getting a taxi upon departure and we also noticed they had a tuk-tuk but we had trouble communicating with the driver to find out where they went, but that was our only problem.
Overall this hotel offers excellent value for money, with lovely rooms in a great location.
