Stayed for three nights in August 2013
Located a bit of a walk off the soi 11, somewhat hidden in a local street. Great for night time sleep, a bit scary if you walk alone at night. The hotel offers free tuk tuk shuttle to Nana BTS sky train station. Ideal if you want to enjoy all the nightlife and shopping around soi 11 and Sukhumvit.
Small rooftop pool with only a few sunbeds, pool design is great with stunning views, due to the lack of a pool shower, the pool water has a horribly amount of chlorine in the water causing me a rash.
Restaurant and Bar; Nice happy hour deal from 11-19, barman world record slow though, we got our drinks after finishing the appetizers. Lunch and breakfast was included in our stay. Quality if breakfast varied day to day, usual Asian effort to imitate western breakfast, failing miserably. The omelet chef saved it though (they days he were there). 30min before breakfast was closing, almost everything was finished, and they don't refill.
Stylish and with everything you need, fridge, tv, amazing beds. Had a few ants and mini roaches but nothing alarming.
Only negative is the design of the bathroom door; a see through glass door and wall, with a 30cm gap to the roof, leaving nothing to the visual and audio imagination of the visit to the toilet….
Not ideal if you're staying with people you don't know that we'll in a twin room like we did,
(Not very romantic either if you're going there for that reason.)
this is where Hiptique really could improve immensely. I booked and payed for a deal through the hotels own website, yet arriving to the hotel , they didn’t have my booking AND they demanded me to pay again (!) took a lot of time and effort to prove them they were wrong. Same story at check-out, demanding me to pay a third time, resulting in the same process with me urging to see the manager.
They also charged my visa twice for the booking after I got home, having to call the hotel to sort things out. Asked for late checkout, front desk said the two extra hours would be 200baht. Yet they called our room early in the morning to say it was 400baht.
Absolutely no communication between staff, having to show my booking voucher over and over and over again in the restaurant to prove them the meals were included in my stay as stated on the voucher, and the waiters having to call front desk again and again. Very annoying ad time consuming.
Value for money;
ok, love the design, location is ok, unfortunately service really needs to improve, don't think I'll stay there again.
