First, this hotel is far, far better than the nearby, more famous, four-star (yeah right!) Asia Hotel! Unhappy with that I stumbled upon this hotel. Anyway...
The hotel itself looks brand new! It's in a fantastic super-covenient location, just a quick walk from BTS Rachthewi station for quick access to Siam and MBK/Siam Paragon etc, and a few minutes walk to the Khlong Saen Saep express boat services to Rattanakosin Island (i.e. old Bangkok).
Breakfast is not free but why would you pay for it?! The soi outside is filled with street vendors and there's a 7-Eleven across the road. There's a fantastic market a few minutes down the soi where I go to get my favourite Thai breakfast of fresh steaming-hot soy milk (nam tao-hu) and deep-fried Chinese dough (pa-tong-go) for about 15 Baht. But don't leave it too late or they will run out!
There are also alot of dry cleaners nearby should you wish to get your clothes washed.
The hotel has no lift, but it's absolutely fine. Upon arrival the porter straight away rushed to bring my bags up to my room. The room was very clean and well-furnished. The rooms have no windows, but the way the room is furnished it doesn't feel like that at all! I thought it was absolutely fine - I mean it's Bangkok - what kind of views would you expect anyway!
Great value for money and a super convenient location. I have found my new base in Bangkok!
