My friend and I spent two nights here over a weekend break from traveling in Asia on business. I spent a lot of time on TripAdvisor researching hotels and chose this one for its BTS station (inside the hotel) and its view of the river. Interestingly, we ended up never using the BTS but it was certainly very conveniently located. We truly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. My room was fairly small but it had a nice long shelf/bench for setting luggage on and I still had room to put other things on it or even sit on it. The bed was fairly firm but still comfortable. The bathroom was good-sized - there was plenty of counter space and a big walk-in shower. However, the lighting in the bathroom was terrible. It only lit up the sink and the counter but my face was in the dark. It was very difficult to see to apply my makeup. This was my biggest complaint about this hotel.
We were on the executive level so we could enjoy the happy hour. We were at the top of the hotel so we had a great view of the river. Breakfast was good and hotel service was prompt and excellent.
But the best part about this hotel was the infinity pool on the 14th floor! After several hours of touring Bangkok temples in 97 degree heat, coming back to the pool really made our day. The pool is gorgeous and so refreshing. The view from the pool is amazing. The bar area around the pool is large and comfortable. Once we settled in there, we never wanted to leave. :-)
I want to give a special mention to Berm, who works at the concierge desk. On our last day, we told him we wanted to shop someplace indoors with A/C before we left for the airport. He made a suggestion and arranged free transportation for us from the hotel to a shopping area and then on to the airport. We saved a lot of time, not to mention money with his help. Thanks Berm!
Overall, I highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again. The concierge desk gave us several suggestions in advance of our trip for tour guides and a spa down the street (AMAZING massage!) and made all reservations for us in advance. We just found this hotel and all its staff to be very helpful and gracious!
