The best family-run hotel I have encountered in 45 years of travel throughout Europe, Asia and the United States. Preedha, Julie and their sons set a standard of hospitality which the entire staff seems to enthusiastically support. The multi-national chains should send teams to Bangkok to study how these people run a hotel.
Physical plant: Simply furnished but immaculately clean rooms (maid service every day), modern bath/shower with ample hot water, very effective (and quiet) A/C, cable-TV with a number of international channels, DD phone, new mattresses (firm, but that’s what I like), free Wifi throughout the hotel, refrigerator in room, free bottled water every day. My room was ample (11’ x 18’). Modern elevator.
Services: Very nice hotel restaurant, small but elegantly laid out. Primarily Thai dishes but some Euro-American options if you want a taste of home. English-language newspaper available every morning. Very economical (compared to what I pay in European hotels) laundry service. They provided free airport transfer going and coming.
Location: Excellent for me, as I was there to do a series of guest lectures at Ramkhamhaeng University. It’s in a suburb and thus quite a distance from the major tourist attractions of the central city. This entire area has wall-to-wall shops, so there is no problem in buying anything you want. 2-4 minute walk from shopping centers. Incidentally, these cater to local folks, so prices are substantially below what you would pay in the tourist areas. Three minute walk from mega-mall with upscale shops and stores. Banks and post office within two minutes. On a side street off of Ramkhamhaeng Road, so you aren’t bothered by street noise.
