We've stayed ten nights at U Place, divided in two stays. In both stays it was great. The place is clean and the rooms are spacious with a simple and modern decoration. It's clean, more gray and white, what I liked very much- no carpets, no excessive furniture - but enough space to organize all of your stuff, chair, small table, shelf in the bathroom, closet, safe box. Small fridge, good to keep your food and water - they offer two bottles of water daily. Service was excellent, they give you maps and orientations in thai to taxi drivers, explain how to go around the city, explain about the scams in Khao San road. They arranged a cab for us to the airport and to the bus station (mo chit), the value was not abusive (of course it was more expensive than if you go by the meter), cabs in good condition. They are polite, nice and organized - we left our luggage with them for 6 days and it was ok when we come back.
it's a small place where you can also rent the room for a longer period - and the rates are better. It's near Khao San road and all main attractions of old town (around 40 minutes walking to grand palace), but in a quiet neighborhood, so it's quiet. There some restaurants around and 7/11. It's also near the river and easy to take a boat to siam area. Bangkok in general is safe and the surroundings are safe.
TV has all main international channels and air con is strong. The pool hasn't many sunbeds, but it's large enough to swim and refresh at the end of the day. Gym isn't very good (old equipment and very small), but you still can use the bike and some weights.
They cleaned our room everyday - just let the sign in your door or tell them. They even clean one day we leave after 3 PM. The smell of the towels were great - their laundry is cheap and one of the best we had in our 6 month trip. They also have a DIY laundry.
We didn't have breakfast there, so can't comment.
For the price and the service, this place is excellent. We'll definitely come back.
