I booked through ebookers and the rate was still around 35 GBP including a very good buffet breakfast which I think is excellent value - I was all the more impressed having just arrived from Yangon where a similar standard room would probably cost three times the rate here.
Rooms are very comfortable, well equipped and clean. Very efficient staff who were happy to let me have a late check out until 2pm.
The location is pretty good - it's down at the 'quiet' end of Silom but only a 15 - 20 minute walk to the main action (bars/shopping/market). They operate an hourly shuttle. Taxi drivers don't seem very familiar with the place for some reason; both times I stayed here the taxi driver tried to drop me off at the Sofitel (now Pullman) along the street.
Only small criticisms: food and drink within the hotel seems a little pricy and there's no free wifi.
Overall though a very good place to stay - I'd definitely stay here next time in BKK and no hesitation in recommending this place.
