The hotel itself was very beautiful and a little off the beaten path for true submersion into the heart of Bangkok, but not far enough for it to be a real issue. The rooms were huge but the front desk was ill equipped to deal with a non-Thai speaking tourist. Unless the clerks who speak English are there you will have a hard time checking in. Also I contacted them a week prior to my arrival and asked about transportation to and from the airport to which they stated both in writing and verbally that they do provide transport both to and from the airport. There was none and I was told that they did not offer it with my package even though I paid full rate and the highest rate they offered for their best room.
I was very please with the room, the people were nice and friendly other than the airport transportation incident and they did their best to accommodate me otherwise. The only complaint about the room was that the living area was hot and didn't seem to ever cool down. The rooms were clean and very well appointed with a washing machine, full modern kitchen, microwave, jacuzzi tub, balcony overlooking the city and huge 47 inch flat screen tv's in both the living area and the bedroom. I wouldn't return only because there are so many other places in Bangkok to stay that you could never see them all in a lifetime!
