The Siam Swana Hotel was clean and comfortable, and with an excellent location just a couple of minutes walk from Ratchathewi BTS station. We actually stayed here twice on our holiday as we returned to Bangkok after travelling to Phuket. It was quite noisy a couple of nights, but not enough to complain about. There are no lifts but the staff helped with our bags and were very helpful. The pool is nice...but is out the front of the hotel which is quite odd, we didn't choose the hotel for the pool though and didn't use it. Would definitely recommend this hotel for the great location and BTS links.
