The De Arni Hotel is located next door to Le Meridien and opposite the Patpong night market. As Bangkok doesn't seem to have a conventional city centre this is about as perfect a tourist base as possible. The first room I was given had a dreadful smell of smoke despite being on a non-smoking floor but the receptionist willingly changed it for a clean-smelling room on a different floor.
The king-size bed was comfortable, the Wi-Fi worked and the bathroom was fine. Although my room faced the main road, the traffic noise wasn't a problem. My room rate didn't include breakfast so I can't comment on the hotel food.
The hotel does seem to operate a 'guest friendly' policy but this is done very discreetly. Overall the de Arni is a great little hotel to suit all visitors to Bangkok.
