The four of us stayed in a really huge 2 bedroom suite with very comfortable beds. The suite was somewhat dated and fairly clean, definitely not for those who want high class living. We love the space and the free bottled drinks provided daily. One of the bathrooms did not have a shower head holder, and the water was either hot or cold, never balanced. I had to keep adjusting the water temperature every 10 seconds, thus it was a rather unpleasant experience. The other bathroom provided only lukewarm water. There was strong wifi in our living room, but it went weak in our bedrooms.
The breakfast was limited but was really not bad. We enjoyed it. Though the replenishing of the food was fast, the amount was small. The noodles were gone by the time it reached the 4th person in queue. What ruined my impression of the hotel was the breakfast staff (with the apron). I think she mistook me for a Thai, and spoke Thai to me insistently when I asked her a simple question. Or maybe she couldn't speak English. It could have taken her 5 seconds to move her butt out of the counter to show me what she meant but it took her 60 seconds to communicate with me in Thai and we both ended up frustrated.
Hotel staff was kind to help us get a cab to the airport and also specifically asked for a metered cab on our behalf - twice. Unfortunately, many cab drivers there are not honest and don't turn on their meter once tourists get on their cabs. We gave the driver less than what he asked for and walked off.
Overall, it's value for money for this hotel. There are very little facilities in there. Only suitable for those who don't stay in the room most of the time, but want an extremely convenient and full experience at Siam.
