The hotel is really tucked away and so is quiet, surprisingly as the traffic chaos around The Democracy Monument is a stones throw away. The staff are lovely and very helpful, they can arrange taxis to the International Airport for 500B (I generally found the price was 450-500B to and from hotel to airport) and saves you bartering on the street. There were not many nice restaurants nearby however the walking street of Khao San Road was minutes away and the little streets in the surrounding area had fantastic shops to browse around in, the silver jewellery stores had bargains galore. The rooms are functional, clean, bathrooms are on the small side but again functional. The breakfast was good, price of rooms are mid-range but potentially negotiable as are most things are in Bangkok! The major sites were easy to walk to, the Grand Palace was about 20 mins away and as the traffic is so bad in Bangkok walking was the easiest mode of transport. I enjoyed my stay and would happily book a room again.
