The biggest thing about this hotel is it's location, and I mean that in both a good and a bad way. It is situated on the east shore of the Chao Phraya river, directly across the river from the ShangriLa hotel and the Taksin skytrain station. (this is on the bottom half on the S curve of the river). On the good side, it is an absolutely beautiful location: the grounds are lovely and the pool is large, with lots of chairs and towels. You can sit and watch the boats and barges go by....very peaceful, especially after a hot hectic day in Bangkok. On the down side, there isn't a whole heck of a lot nearby (ie shopping, restaurants). To get into the city attractions, without sitting for hours inhaling fumes in the back of a tuktuk, we walked to the bridge about 8 minutes, and boarded a little ferry that took us across to the Taksin station. You could, instead, walk a little further, and board the skytrain at the next station, but you are taking your life in your hands trying to cross the roads around here! The hotel itself was very good...super clean (I sat at breakfast one morning and watched one of the workers continuously damp-sweep the restaurant over and over), and both the breakfast buffet and the dinner buffet were very good with lots of choices, and awesome coffee! The rooms, as was mentioned by others, were pretty basic, but had everything you needed. We travelled with our 3 kids and got 2 family rooms which have bunk beds, and this worked out well. We stayed for 4 days at the start of our holiday, and 2 more at the end before coming home.
