The pros: cheap, nice rooms with a balcony (superior room).
1 during our first night we had to change rooms due to incredibly loud neighbors. Hotel barely acted, only assigning us to a different room after we asked them four times. Did nothing to the noisy guests, though.
2 At 1.30 someone suddenly came in our room while we were sleeping. It appeared to be a tired tuktuk driver, regardless of our 'do not disturb' sign. Pretty disturbing.
3 Furthermore the wifi barely worked, router time outs every 5 minutes.
4 On our last day there was no water in the entire hotel, so that we couldn't shower or go to the toilet for almost 3 hours.
5 Apart from this all the room is quite far away from the action. The mrt is not that close.
6 Apparently, if you leave your room after 11 am they don't clean it. We had to ask for towels two days in a row, even though our sign was hanging on the door.
7 walls are paper thin. You hear the elevator and other rooms all the time.
8 beds are, like mentioned by other people, rock hard. My back hurt days after I left Bangkok.
9 Finally, the staff is not really helpful or friendly. After asking about the price for a taxi to the airport they quoted a much higher price than it should be. Therefore not helpful at all.
Overall: pick a different hotel, you can find a better place for this price.
