I have booked this hotel in Agoda.com with a very good rates. They arranged an airport pick-up for me which is USD$12 per way (not bad if you want to have a convenient journey to the hotel). After almost 1 hour (due to traffic) I arrived in the hotel.
The hotel is 1-2mins. walk going inside from the main road and there is a construction going on nearby but that's okay...As I arrived in their hotel, there's another guests so, have to wait a little while. But, they did their best to accomodate me as the previous guest I saw have a lot of inquiries.
The room they have given me is right at the back of the reception (level 1). The room is spacious, clean and shower bathroom. The room has big bed, LCD with cable, fridge and complimentary 2 bottled water, coffee and tea. From your room, you cannot hear loud voices, as they keep it quiet.
The next morning, I decided to go to Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda, Independence Monument and Wat Langka...to my surprise, only 5-10 walk to mentioned places. But, On the way to Royal Palace, I ride a motorcycle for only USD$1. What a great location of the hotel. I'm a keen Photographer so, I really like that.
The food can be directly ordered to nearby food bar (Banana Bar) which is around USD$4-10, depending on food you like but there's a lot of coffee shops, and restaus nearby. And, there's a nearby spa that I had a massage for USD$12 for a hour which is really good.
All in all, I had a GOOD stay in this hotel, and I am so recommending this.
Note: The Top Floor (Penthouse) has a very good view...you can see the Indepedence Monument with Light at night which is very nice.
