Rooms, service, bed, food, location: everything is good in this hotel, the club lounge is excellent.
The problem for me was that 2 days before leaving from Italy to Bkk I received an email from the commercial dpt of the hotel asking for details on my flight and arrival time, that I promptly sent. Few hours later I receveid another email with the extracharge for an early check in (almost all flights from Europe arrive in Bkk early in the morning). I was very surprised: after more than 20 trips to Bkk and stays in different hotels, I was never required to pay an extracharge for an early check in... Not only, but in the same hours I received from a qualified Asian web site an offer for the same hotel at a rate more than 30% cheaper than the official lowest rate of the hotel and of the rate I had (unfortunately) prepaid. The full amount of such (cheaper) rate per day was lower than the extracharge the hotel has proposed to me for some hours of early check in! Never more prepaid rates with this hotel! In Bangkok usually it's not a problem to find an hotel also few hours before the arrival and if a commercial policy lake this is applied, I think to change hotel is mandatory!
