We always stay at the Lebua when we go to Bangkok, but fancied a change and read such great reviews of this hotel we decided we had to check it out!
I had such high expectations of this hotel because of the other reviews, but it didn't quite meet them.
Summarise the pros & cons:
> Beautiful building, design and architecture. It really is stunning, as are the suites, with every amenity imaginable provided [sellotape, scissors, torch, mouthwash etc etc]
> Bed is the most comfortable one i've slept in by far
> Concierge guys were super helpful and friendly
> Gym has brand new equipment with personal tv screens and plenty of cardio machines. Really liked that they provided headphone sets as well as the usual water and towels
> They gave us a late check out until 4pm as our flight was late in the evening
> Location - you're less than 5 mins from the BTS and so convenient for Siam Paragon shopping centre [1 stop on BTS or 15min easy walk]
> Service was really patchy.
Reception staff - They didn't have our room reservation, and we were sat by reception for about 40mins until they informed us that we wouldn't be able to check in until 6pm [we arrived at 4pm] They just offered us a cold drink or a coffee for the inconvenience [but did upgrade us to a better room].
Breakfast staff - Took ages to get coffee, then an hot breakfast order. First request for a refill coffee ignored, 2nd provided us with lukewarm pots. Clearing of plates really slow - which is not ideal on a buffet.
> Pool is just a lap pool, you won't get any sun, so its more for exercise rather than 'lounging'
> My other half complained about the gym equipment not having enough heavy free weights
Overall I personally think it's better suited to business travellers, but has amazing potential once its sorted out it's initial 'teething' issues
