We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights to start our journey for 4 weeks in thailand, and we must say that we were surprised by the fact that the hotel was so clean and well organized. But there was no problem for us to stay there for leisure with backpacks, as some 5 star hotels seem a little too tidy and close with their customers. In this hotels you find a combination of travellers, which is perfect for all of them! If you require service they will be pleased to serve you, and if you want to have less attention, they perfectly adapt to all situations.
Furthermore, we found the top floor restaurant difficult to rate, as the location "top floor" certainly is amazing, and the food is nicely served. In our opinion the food was very thai and not so much chinese in its taste, with the similar herbs you find everywhere in Thailand and then you find young unexperienced personnel in the restaurants. All together we were satisfied, but wouldn't recommend it at the high prices they charge you. We ate here with 5 persons and spend about 250 euros, this is rediculous for Thailand.
The location is perfect to travel to all the hotspots in the City; Grand Palace, Wat Po, city centre etc etc. The hotel offers great value with the private hotel ferry, the ferry brings you to the nearest skytrain within 5 minutes or to various connections with other ferry's that travel to the best hotspots Bangkok has to offer. Then you find many taxi's in Bangkok but most drivers will give you a headach as you ask them to drive on meter, which is obligatory in Thailand. Give a sign to the hotel staff that you need a taxi and they check the driver and meter before you drive away, what a relief!!!!! But in these 5 days we had serious issues travelling back to the hotel. Taxi drivers didn't know the hotel at all not even by showing the businesscard including a thai translation and map OR even worse they didn't want to travel to the hotel, because it was too far for them and in the rush hour we spend about 1 hour to find 2 taxi's willing to drive us back and then another hour to actually drive back..
All together I think the hotel is great and unique in value for money and I would seriously go back to this hotel straight away and keep in mind some critical knowledge.
