As close to Gotham you'll ever get without seeing a bat. The atmosphere is dark, broody and romantic.
The service has been top-notch especially from the charming Biw at reception and the lovely gentlemen at the entrance. They've gone out of the way to ensure we arrive safely to the correct destinations with maps and instructions (written and verbal) to the cab drivers. They also helpfully gave detailed directions via BTS when we couldn't secure a cab and were running late for an appointment.
Chit Lom BTS station and Central Chitlom is just a short 10-min walk away and the hotel has a free tuk-tuk service to get you there. Although it's one BTS stop from Siam, where Siam Paragon and Siam Square are, you can take a 15 minutes leisurely stroll there via the Skywalk too.
The beds are as described by the other reviewers, as comfy as I've ever experienced anywhere else. Kids stay for free. The TV emerges from the wooden armoire at the click of a remote control, which thrilled the child (but no batcave to be found). Lots of channels are available, but only 2 for kids. The pool is kid-friendly and they will allow kids up at Speakeasy up to around 10pm.
The bathroom comes equipped with double sink, slippers, hair dryer, bath tub and salts, bath robes and a rain shower. The safe is in a drawer in the wardrobe, and they've an ironing board and shoe polish in there too.
We ate at the Italian restaurant (Medici) as well as ordered room service. The food was excellent at both. Will recommend making reservations for one meal at Medici and be treated to live renditions of classic opera at 15 minute intervals by a quartet of sopranos and tenors. The acoustics were nice and made for a truly memorable experience.
There is great Bangkok street food to be had along Langsuan but only in the morning. Otherwise check out Gaggan or the macrobiotic restaurant along the same street. There are many food joints there, as well as 7-Eleven and a Starbucks.
There isn't a spa menu, but it really isn't necessary. There's a massage place just next door that closes at midnight which is clean and professional at reasonable rates and offers a loyalty programme too.
If I really must find something that they can improve on, it would be the shower - the water pressure and heat wasn't consistent and I found myself constantly adjusting the faucet throughout my bath. But this is really minor considering how well they do everything else.
