“Best hotel for the discerning budget traveller!”
Reviewed 14 June 2010

This hotel may be out of the price range of most budget travellers, but it is still excellent value for money. We got it as a mystery hotel on wotif and paid TB1299 per night, inclusive of breakfast and free wifi. For this price, you get a BEAUTIFUL and spacious room, tastefully furnished and well-equipped. This is a boutique hotel and I would say the room deserves four stars minimum, compared to the usual TB1000 3-star accommodations I usually take.

We consider this to be a good location as it is within walking distance of both the BTS and MRT, and within easy access to shopping and entertainment spots. Breakfast was limited but delightful, in a chic setting and attentive staff. Service in general was faultless, and staff paid great attention to detail and were very helpful.

We would definitely recommend this hotel to all!

This place is young so maybe it will get better. With the myriad options here in Bangkok I wont be trying here again.

The internet would stop working randomly due to a problem with one of their servers. They tried to blame this on the government during the current crackdown on the Red Shirts. Always uncool to lie especially using a situation where people are being shot dead .

There are numerous little things that add up. Like-
Getting a shock in the bathroom off a poorly installed metal receptacle cover.
Sewer smell form the bathroom drain back gassing
Strange light switches in places like behind the nightstand. What's up with that?
They tried to charge me pants rate for laundering my shorts (a difference of $1.20 each). A note that laundry in Thailand typically costs .15 cents US a piece for t-shirts, shorts, underwear. I was charged over $30 us dollars for 4 underwear, 3 shorts, 3 t-shirts. Not dry-cleaning this is charge for laundry! Oh and they forgot the 10% laundry discount they have on their website.

Oh and Sukhumvit Soi 15 is a very dark narrow street at night. With numerous prostitutes, motorcycle touts, gambling, and drunks. It is about a 5 minute walk to Sukhumvit from the hotel.

If I owned a hotel that was new and in a very very competitive location, during the off season, and with a military crackdown in which people dying and no one is coming to Bangkok. I would try to be a little more customer oriented and at least honor the rates and special incentives you have posted on our web site.

I will say that the desk staff are very friendly and try to be helpful. I have not seen a concierge so I can't comment on that. Breakfast was nothing special. The room service was prompt and tasty.

There are many many (many) hotels in this price range and that have way way better everything (like working internet, roof deck, swimming pool, exercise room). For this price in this location don't hesitate to cross Kingston Suites off your list. You can do WAY better.

Took a chance with this hotel, as it was only opened in April 2010. However, the hotel was very well finished, and the facilities were excellent.

The management and staff were outstanding, though sometimes just a little over-the-top. I assume this is because the hotel was almost empty, so they poured attention on anyone who was staying. FYI the stay was during the Red protests and most hotels were very quiet.

The breakfast was good, and served al-la-carte, even though its is meant to be buffet. Again, clearly due to the lack of guests.

One slight gripe was the A/C noise on the low setting. The A/C also seemed to blow cold, even on high temperature settings. This might need some attention by the management. The finish in the bathroom wasn't up to the excellent finish in the rest of the hotel.

Soi 15 is quiet. However, if you want lots of restaurants and bars, go up soi 15 a few yards and take a left through the Ambassador laundry Soi, cross Soi 13 and go through the Ambassador foyer out onto Soi 11 (you come out opposite sub-Soi 11, Cheap Charlies, Pickled Liver etc).

A new hotel in Bangkok in the central tourist section of the city. Rooms are spacious, clean and new and well designed. Room service and Housekeeping very good with special attention paid by management as to how the service was conducted. Another aspect that I appreciated was security to the guest with respect to others that may enter the room. When I expressed a curious interest in available condos for rent or sale, management went out of their way to give me a special viewing of the new condos located behind the hotel. Because of personal issues I could not re-book to this hotel when I traveled to Northern Thailand, nothing at all to do with the hotel, it's personnel and the manager. The only comment to the manager was that I felt the room service menu needed more variety. But it is a new venture, managed and run by a young ambitious group of people and I can only see success for them in the near and longterm future. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to see and visit Bangkok.
