Booked here entirely on the recommendation of TripAdvisor and were thoroughly delighted with the choice. Our 3 bed apartment was fabulous. So much space we could hardly believe it - even the kitchen was big (not a tiny kitchenette like you get in so many places). Unfortunately we were too late to use the restaurant (and I had been excited because it was 'hawker night' by the pool...) but they have room service up until midnight so we got that rather than venture out. I'm so glad we did. The dining table in our apartment was big enough for 6 and we needed it once the food arrived because the portions were generous and everything was delicious. It was a particularly good start. I ought to say, too, that the rooms were very clean and the heavy cotton bedlinen was much appreciated. The decor was lovely throughout the hotel with nice objets d'art scattered about.
All slept very well (our bed was hard but the other beds weren't - my daughter said hers was the comfiest she'd slept in for some time) and ready for a late breakfast. Loads of choice, even for the picky among us, and the hot things were properly hot (not what we experienced in our Vietnam hotel, it must be said). Service was swift and effective but very discreet and we never had a problem getting a table for the 5 of us.
Reception staff were helpful. They got a bit embarrassed at having to write the name of the restaurant 'Cabbages and Condoms' in Thai for the taxi driver (!) but they were good to do it. They also provided us with a useful map. The bellhops were (all of them) always smiling and very quick to open doors and assist with bags. I was very impressed by all the staff we encountered, to be honest.
No problem with taxis picking us up or dropping us off. But why bother when there's a Mass Transit Bus five minutes walk away that connects with the Skytrain and you have some great local eateries? Walked to and from the station a couple of times at night but felt very safe. One night we ate at the Fuzion bar which is two minutes away from the hotel and does a massive menu of Thai and European food (and has excellent beer). There were other eateries down the road too (as well as the ubiquitous Starbucks!). One TripAdvisor review I had read beforehand said 'nowhere to eat nearby' - clearly they didn't leave the hotel and turn right?!!
We did use the pool and it was great. Lots of sunbeds and only had a problem on the final morning (we did find one in the end). Yes it was cold but not once you got used to it. We also had cocktails and ice creams in the bar by the pool, which were spectacular. Again, excellent service. Ditto the shop, which had everything we wanted (in our case, water and crisps mainly!)
I can't see any reason to stay elsewhere on our next trip to Bangkok.
