Second visit to meet with family members. The rooms are clean and spacious for the price (though Bangkok accommodation is cheap overall anyway) stayed in a city view room which overlooks a school, sports oval/basketball courts and low buildings - not terrible but nothing particularly nice to see either. I would suggest paying extra for the river view and ask for a high floor if you plan to spend time inside the room or enjoying the balcony.
The shower drainage is bad (has been both times) it takes 5mins for the water puddle to go down but seems to just be an issue with the pipes and not the particular room.
Wifi connection is free but the signal is super weak and cuts out intermittently very frequently wherever you are (room, pool, lobby) which is frustrating if you need to look things up or do any work (even writing this - it has cut out multiple times in the space of 5mins) that is probably the biggest frustration for me.. Perhaps it won't bother the general tourist. Personally I would prefer to pay for a stable connection than a unreliable free one...
Other than that, breakfast is your standard affair with western and eastern foods and the service comes with a smile. It's an overall decent hotel for the price range with quick access to the highway to get to the airport.
