We spent 3 nights at this hotel and had a wonderful view of the river and pool on the 14th floor. Great location with 5 minutes walk to ferry and skytrain, which means you can get anywhere reasonably quickly. Hotel was expensive to eat in so would recommend you eat elsewhere, we actually ate breakfast at McDonalds as it was just 5 minutes away and was about £2 and quick, we also knew what we were eating.
There was happy hour in lounge bar 5-8pm which was fine. Pool area lovely and first day had free water and lavender smelling flannel. Nearby to the hotel are several massage places all extremely cheap, we visited them twice and for around £8-£10 you get a wonderful hour long massage, it is no frills but very good and well worth doing. Also had a very good pedicure too.
Visited all the main attractions, Ladyboys Calypso show at asia hotel was an experience, Damnoen floating market was fantastic
and Elephant Village (well worth the hour long taxi ride). Chatuchak weekend market is a must and always barter to half the price it starts at, amazing stuff and so cheap. This you can get to by using the skytrain takes about half an hour but well worth going,
The royal palace, wot pho temple and wat arun are all unmissable. Make sure you know how the fag system on the ferries work.
