I've stayed with Varindavan Park three times in the last 2 years, and I've had great experiences all around. It's situated in Ekkamai soi 12, and close to 2 BTS Sky Train stations, which are easily accessible by motorcycle taxi, taxicab, or even a 15 minute walk, though the traffic can be kind of busy at times. The surrounding areas feature quaint and tasty restaurants and boutique shops, and it's also close to several really cheap and tasty restaurants. It's about a 10 minute walk away from the busy Thong Lo 10 area, which is nice, and has several shops, restaurants, and the 24 hour open FoodLand supermarket.
The hotel itself is clean and homely. Front desk staff are lively and very helpful. Rooms are suite-style or apartment style, featuring hard-wood or cherry wood accents, appropriate lighting, and decorated very simply. They have an attached complete bathroom, including bathtub (jacuzzi) and standing shower. I've always ended up getting a room that faced the back side of the hotel, so there is not much of a beautiful view, but it was sufficient for my needs and length of stay. There is air conditioning and free wifi included, along with some cable TV channels. The area surrounding the hotel is extremely tranquil at night, so you will get a good night's sleep without the disturbance of too many traffic noises. The curtain shades let in a phenomenal amount of light in the morniings after the sun rises, so it's almost not necessary to turn on the light switch. The only thing I could have asked for is an included breakfast, but there are places close by to eat as well.
There are a few concierge staff that help you outside if you need a taxi, or help to tell the taxi driver your destination in Thai. I always have a departure flight around 3AM, so they were very helpful in finding a taxi for me during such non-peak hours. Also in the lobby, there is a full service massage parlor with service hours until 11pm or midnight. It was really welcoming, convenient and worth the price when I needed it.
Definitely don't stay here if you are looking for a luxurious spa or pampering type experience. This is otherwise a really comfortable and budget friendly hotel that will meet your needs for a few days in Bangkok.
