Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in July. As this hotel is new, it will be better if you would have the map (in thai) printed out for the taxi driver. Ratchaprasong is a very busy area and if the taxi driver make a wrong turn there, it will take you 30 mins or more to make it back to the hotel because Bangkok does have serious traffic problem.
The hotel decoration is very trendy and room is spacious. I love their hip and trendy design and bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is separated with the bedroom by glass walls and electric curtain . Their plasma tv has over 20 channels.
The hotel staff speak very good English and service is excellent. The room rate includes breakfast and they have good selection for their buffet breakfast and the eggs will be cooked upon ordered. You can also have expresso or cappuccino at no extra charge.
So much about the pros. Here are the cons; although the hotel is right next to the skytrain , you do have to walk through the driveway and carpark outside the hotel and have to watch out for incoming or outgoing traffic. The wifi service is available in room with a surcharge and its not cheap at all. They have very nice swimming pool, but unfortunately it is covered and you cannot get any suntan at all.
Afterall, this is a very nice hotel and if the wifi service and suntanning does not bother you. Then you will love this hotel.
