Notice that there's no review for the past few months and I've stayed in this hotel during early November 2013 and hope that my review helps you guys.
The good stuffs:
Location of the hotel is the best, the bts is just outside of the hotel!
staff is friendly, if you need hot water, just let the staff at the counter know and they will arrange to bring up a flask with hot water, hair dryer is also provided but you need to ask. The massage is very good.
Now onto the not so good stuffs:
Why I gave two stars is because 1. if you need to make a local phone call in Bangkok you need to pay 45 baht when I asked the receptionist to help me to make a call. 2. you need to pay 10 baht if you request the hotel to help to print a piece of email.
The rooms are not exactly sound proof, you can hear people at the hall way, and even the room next to you when they are plugging in or out the plugs.
There is limited power points take note.
The tv channels are limited and so can be kinda boring if you are back in the hotel and unable to sleep after 2am when the night market outside is close.
The wifi is slow ... so if you're downloading movies its very slow.
The air con is old... and will take quite a while to cool the room. As every time you remove the key, the power cuts off and when you return from your shopping trip the room feels like a sauna.
There are computers on the lobby but they are out of order... all at the same time.
Location is very good but still I believe for the price you can get other hotels.
For the kinda money the hotel is earning I sincerely hope they can upgrade the hotel bit by bit.
