We stayed here for 3 nights and overall we were very impressed. Hotel room was spacious and modern with fantastic views of the city and bed was very comfy. Good value for money especially if you get breakfast included.
However we were very disappointed with the price of food and drinks. We ate once in the hotel at cafe mozu which is a poolside cafe and nearly fell off our chairs when we saw that soft drinks were 290 Baht plus an additional 17% for tax and service.That means that a coke that costs approximately 15 Baht in 7-11 costs over 300 Baht (£6), quite a mark-up! That was our last meal at the hotel as when we looked at the room service menu and saw they were charging 1200Baht plus 17% for a burger (around £25) we decided they were taking advantage. We are residents of Bangkok so know how much things cost. We do obviously expect to pay more for drinks at a 5* establishment but that just felt too much. Ironically we had lunch the next day at the Shangri-la hotel which is just across the road and is an equally nice 5* hotel and they were charging half the price of Le Bua.
Overall service by staff was excellent and cannot be faulted other than that it felt too much and sometimes we just wanted to be left alone. We couldn't even push a lift button without someone swooping across and doing it for us! I know you can't complain about attentive service but this did become waring after a while!
The pool area is quite small but there are a good number of lounges and it was quiet the whole time we were there. The one complaint I did have about this area though was that it was a smoking area and when people smoked there was no escaping the smoke. Being over 8 months pregnant I found this to be an uncomfortable experience.
The hotel is not in a great area unfortunately, and we wouldn't recommend this hotel for people passing through the city as there are equally nice hotels in nicer areas. The main attraction is the skybar situated on the 64th floor and that would be worth a visit but you don't need to stay at the hotel to have a drink there.
