I know Bangkok well and have stayed in numerous hotels and would not stay here again. I booked a large suite. After we checked in I realized that we were given their smallest suite. I went down and questioned the staff and they were not very accommodating and were not apologetic at all. Eventually after providing all of my documentation to establish I had indeed paid for a large suite, we were given a new room. Bottom line, not worth getting the larger room. If you are going to stay here take the smaller suite, it is more than adequate and in fact, I preferred the lay out.
The staff were not very accommodating. Despite asking for a meter taxi to the airport they kept getting drivers who were asking outrageous amounts - it got incredibly annoying. Finally we got all of our stuff in a taxi after being assured he would use the meter and as soon as we left the hotel he refused to drop the meter. Getting room service was a bit of a chore, but the food was good. The breakfast is more than adequate but definitely does not compare to the spreads in other hotels in the area.
The worst part is the location. It's on one of the worst sois to walk down. You are better off walking around the corner and walking up Soi 11 than trying to navigate Soi 13. Although there is tuk tuk service it was never available. There is also construction literally outside the room.
For the money, it is a decent place. If you have children, I do not recommend it because of the location. Again, there are much better hotels to stay at in Bangkok - especially the Sukhumvit area.
