If you've stayed at Ibis in the UK, I have in Leeds, then forget what you know...
The location of this Ibis is nothing short of spectacular for the price, we paid about £25 per night, you will not beat it. Personal opinion of course but, being where it is, west side of the Chao Phraya, for us it was perfect. We're not so old so enjoyed the 10 minute walk to the river to join the cross river ferry to Saphan Taksin, where you can catch the river boat taxi to many tourist sites, Wat Arun, Wat Po and the Grand Palace, Kao San Road etc, or jump up on the Sky train for Chinatown, Lumpini Park, Jim Thompson's House or Chatuchak Market even.
Good local food nearby, at the end of the Soi out of the hotel, turn right and, 50yds you'll find a brilliant Thai family eatery that opened early for us. If you like it spicy, order the Nam Tok Moo, our favourite Thai food ever.
The hotel itself is great, pretty standard rooms, small shower room, comfy bed and clean too. Its a new place and should be good and clean. No staff issues as can be the case with newish places the were all very friendly but, the real deal with this place is the pool by the brilliant river, I can and have sat watching this river all day long, its fascinating and, to have a pool by it, for £25 a night is outstanding. As mentioned before by others, the pool is cold, it lies in the shadow of the building all afternoon but, once you actually get in and out and have a mess about, its fine.
Brilliant stay, would definitely stay again and recommend.
