We booked this hotel as it was only 20 minutes on the rail link to the airport. The hotel is right next to Petchuburi & Makkasan Station and only 5 minutes on BTS from Sukhumvit where you can find lots of bars and restaurants making it a very convenient location.
There didn't seem to be much happening near the hotel but that wasn't a problem as you could find as much nightlife as you wanted a 5 minute / 16 THB BTS ride away. There was also a 7/11 supermarket just around the corner.
Our room was very comfortable and clean and the reception staff were very pleasant and helpful.
The breakfast was more Thai style than Western although there were coco-pop cereal and plenty of bread for toast. There was also a nice selection of fresh fruit. There were scrambled egg and frankfurters but it looked over-heated and unpleasant. I asked for a fried egg and the waitress returned with 2 freshly cooked eggs, done to perfection, so they are happy to respond to special requests.
There was a Jacuzzi on the roof top which was pleasant but unfortunately some of the jets were out of order, it could really do with some maintenance. There are also towels for users but they seem to keep them hidden away in one of the lockers.
All in all a very comfortable stay at this hotel, would definitely use them again.
