We were were for a weekend in May 2013.
The hotel is located on the river and has a very frequent boat service to the BTS station about 10mins away (in fact, if you want to get to the royal palace etc...., one get off at the same stop as that for the BTS station and catch a water taxi which will get you there in about 20 odd minutes if I remember right). Bangkok road traffic can suck and the waterway proved to be a much more dependable means of transport
The rooms are large with a comfortable bathroom. We had taken a river facing room and the view was always interesting
Breakfast has a lot of options including chinese, Indian and the regular continental stuff. Was quite a welcome break after the sparse breakfasts one is served in Europe
The pool is huge and the guys also sent us a complimentary birthday cake as it was our wedding anniversary...
The hotel is situated on a very well known road and hence is a taxi driver's delight. Insist on travelling by meter the very first time you travel so that you get a fair idea of the actual costs That way you can estimate whether you are being fleeced or not when a cabbie tells u a fixed sum stating bad traffic etc.
All in all a large, business hotel which can service even a family/couple's needs
