Currently staying here and after staying in hotels on previous visits to Bangkok would recommend not to stay here.
After a taxi, ferry, taxi, flight and taxi, by the time we got to the hotel we were looking forward to being able to relax! Unfortunately when we got there is became quite clear that the hotel wouldn't make it at all relaxing for us.
When our taxi pulled in the doorman did not open the taxi door, not did he help us get our luggage from the taxi, nor offered to take it into the hotel.
In fact we had to carry our own bags all the way to our room.
Speaking of rooms we were offered a twin room to begin with.... As a couple we of course explained that a twin room isn't what we had booked and we needed a double, they switched our rooms without a fuss but was unsure as to why they thought it was acceptable to put us in a twin room.
Rooms themselves are ok. Very modern, though don't expect the maid to do more than make the bed and change the towels. They literally hadn't cleaned, just done the absolute minimum.
Being at the end of our holiday my conditioner is running somewhat low so assumed that our hotel would provide some...
Not this hotel, they have a 'shampoo and conditioner in 1' which I'm pretty sure is the same as the 'bath gel' they provide.
The breakfast is ok, though when I ordered poached eggs on the first day they were basically like water, so the second day I asked them to be left in longer which as a simple request I would expect not to be an issue, but apparently not. 22 minutes and 6 staff later I finally received my poached eggs.
Overall a basic hotel, nice pool but overpriced on drinks around the pool.
Of course you know prices are going to be higher in hotel bars but there's a difference between marked up and then just taking the Micky. 20 baht in the shop singha, 180 baht from the hotel.
I would say if you're looking for a 5 star this isn't the place to stay. It is more around a 3 star.
