I stayed at this hotel in May 2012. I choose this hotel because I was going to a cooking school and this hotel was close to the school. 'My hotel Pratunam is in the busy Pratunam market area and ideal for people going mainly for shopping. Although it wasn't too far from the main tourist attractions (about 100 baht in a cab to the main temple area).
I stayed for 3 nights and found it to be ok. The staff were friendly when approached but didn't go out of their way to help. The room was clean and ok for a single traveller (or a couple) but I wouldn't recommend it for a family. The bathroom was again average but had a bad smell and I had to keep the bathroom door closed at all times to prevent the smell from coming into the room. And at night the sound of the train passing was loud at times. As you can see I didn't have many expectations and I'm a very fuss free traveller so these things didn't bother me.
The breakfast was a basic affair - continental and thai. I ate at the cafe a couple of times and they made a vegetarian dish for me. I didn't try the massage place mainly thanks to the reviews I read here.
The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the main road.. I made this walk several times and I didn't find it far or unsafe. There is a free tuktuk but the driver is always busy or doing something else so instead of waiting and waiting for him I walked.
I would stay at this hotel again if my purpose was a shopping trip. My advice is to choose your hotel depending on your interest and what you wanted to do in Bangkok.
Final note: I took the sky train from the airport to Paya Thai station (about 30 mins and 45 baht on the train and 15 mins walk to the hotel or a short tuktuk ride). There are lots of taxi's around but make sure you insist on the metre before getting in :)
