We stayed here at the AETAS Bangkok for 4 nights in mid January 2014. Sure there are probably more luxurious hotels in Bangkok, but for location and price this hotel was perfect. We were upgraded to a suite without asking so we are really grateful to the hotel for that. The room was perfect. Extremely comfortable bed. Very clean and modern. The bathroom is huge with a separate tub and shower. the suite room also has an additional 1/2 bath (toilet and sink) which is so useful and convenient. The spa was nice and we got good massages there. The pool and outdoor bar area are also nice. The pool area is not huge, but I did not go to Bangkok to lay around the pool. The gym is small but functional enough to help you get a decent workout to maintain some fitness until you get home to your regular gym. The little courtyard accessed from the gym is also a nice feature where you could do some stretching and whatever. The staff is pleasant and helpful. the Concierge desk was really helpful and gave great advice and they will tell you if you should take a taxi or the train or if it is better to use their limo service (we were advised to use each on separate occasions.) The BTS skytrain is a 10 minute walk at most and if they are available the hotel will drive you there in their tuk-tuk. The Skytrain can take you to most places in the city you need to go as a tourist like the giant weekend Chatuchak Market or the Pier to catch a boat. In addition to their spa, there are several cheap massage places 2 or 3 minutes (walking) away. also you can walk up to Sukhumvit road in 10 minutes or catch the hotel tuk tuk and then you can easily walk along the busy commercial area there. This hotel is really nice and conveniently located yet being on this small side street it is also quiet. It is right behind the Conrad hotel and US Embassy. Also its is easy to get to Siam Paragon mall which is the nicest mall I have ever been in, including US Galleria malls. I will say again that the staff was very friendly and helpful and always cheerful. they greet you anytime they see you in the hall. and the breakfast was a pretty good variety and overall pretty good. The seating area can get crowded and it is a little cafeteria style, but if it wasn't laid out this way the capacity would be greatly diminished and you probably wouldn't find a seat. Also it was pretty standard to other hotels we stayed in around SE Asia. Great free Wi-Fi. If you need anymore luxury than this then go ahead and stay in the Mandarin Oriental for 4 times as much $$$. If you like a really, really nice hotel that has a more intimate and smaller feel than a giant Marriott but is just as nice then this is your place. I have stayed in plenty of hotels similar in quality in the US and have to pay at least $25 - $50 more a night -- (and there are no excellent $10 massage places anywhere in the US!) so this is an EXCELLENT value. I would stay here again without hesitation.
