This hotel get the prize for being the whackiest so far.............................................
The decor is somewhat bizarre, in the room I stayed in the predominant colour was BLUE and boy was it blue, the room itself had all the comforts of a Sofitel with an extremely comfortable bed and all amenities. I am not sure exactly what the Hotel is trying to acheive here as they really do not need to do this, It does nothing for the ambience in fact in places it down right awkward to see what you are doing due to the lack of lights !! In general its quite gloomy inside, the roms could do with extra lights. To say the Hotel only opened in February 2012 it is showing some wear and tear and thefinish to some of the decor is not quite there.
Having said all that,the staff make you feel relaxed and at home and they cannot do enough for you,
The pool area is quite and tranquil and of course it is a vista pool ! The food generally was not that great and to be honest you can get far better in central Bangkok.
The location is far from the central action and require a taxi ride to get you anywhere, which is not a great hardship as Taxis are cheap in Bangkok.
Would I stay here again, MMmmm probably not, I would opt for the Sofitel on Sukhumvit, the main reason being quick and easy access to the nightlife and shops, but the decor has a lot to do with my decision !!
