The hotel is in a great location - lots of action in the area for whatever you are looking for in Bangkok. It is down a side street/alley which makes it somewhat inconvenient. There is a tuk-tuk from the hotel that can be called to take you to the main street - we only found it useful when leaving the hotel since we didn't have a cell to call it on the way back. But its not too long of a walk and residential (no shady characters at night).
The BTS and MTR is not far away and there is a mall (Terminal 21) nearby - plenty of food options there and along the streets. For those looking for Thai massages, there are plenty of small shops and some more upscale places nearby. The Bangkok bars are a short walk (or quick BTS ride) away. Traffic can be a pain if you decide to take a cab/taxi/van since its Bangkok and street is a dead end plus can only be accessed if you are headed west on Sukhumvit.
The hotel itself is very nice for a moderately priced property. It has more of a boutique feel like most places in Bangkok. The pool and garden area is very nicely landscaped and relaxing. The restaurant overlooks it all so makes for a nice start to the day during breakfast. The rooms are decently sized and clean with a rain shower. Again, a more boutique feel compared to its Ramada counterparts in the US. Breakfast was buffet style and was pretty standard, not huge but enough - eggs made to order, breads, danishes, fruits, yogurt, cereals, sausage, and porridge. I didn't notice too many changes each day, maybe a different fruit or something each day.
The staff is very helpful and spoke good English so no worries if you don't speak Thai. There is no concierge so do not expect too many recommendations, bookings, etc.
Bangkok is a great place as a traveler as great hotel options abound and are quite affordable compared to other large cities. This Ramada is a great value option for those looking to stay near the action in Bangkok - it has excellent service, points (if you with Wyndham), good location, boutique feel, and clean rooms.
