Le Meridien turned out to be a very chic trendy hotel. Can't fault either the location, cleanliness or anything else. However I found it to be a bit sterile and austere, one didn't feel the need to linger in the lobby at any time. The location was in the middle of the Red Light district but we didn't really care about that because it means you are in the middle of things and within easy reach of the BTS train which means you can go almost anywhere you like in Bangkok.
I loved the city though, it was crazy and busy but strangely clean even after the absolute multitude of humanity passing through it. In fact Bangkok compares very favourably to Phuket which I found to be dirtier and smellier.
The bed at the Meridien was very comfy and the room luxurious. The concierge was very very helpful and directed us to Under the Mango tree, a restaurant in walking difference where the food was glorious as well as the service and the Thai music played nice to see and hear.
Having ticked nightlife it is more in the sense of observing than participating. Plenty of bars nearby, Phatpong market is round the corner and Cool Corner the little coffee place was great to sit and watch the passing parade.
A visit to the temple was a must and a visit to Chatuchak market was an unbelieveable experience as was the trip on the river with a guide to a local floating market.
