This is the 2nd time i am staying here during my trip to Bkk. Located on the 7th floor of Shibuya 19, its the building right beside the lane where the famous wan ton mee is at. Platinum Shopping mall is diagonally opposite. Walking distance to Big C, Central mall etc.
This time with friends, we took a connecting room. As they only have 1 twin room and a king sized bed room for their connecting rooms, it gave us a good feel of both rooms. Having stayed in the twin room in my previous trip, i really prefer the room with the King sized bed. Instead of a little coffee table and chair, you are given a sofa in that space. Its a nice place to chill while waiting for the rest of your trip mates to get ready to conquer the shopping malls, or you could use it to place all your loots for the day before you start stuffing them into your luggage.
The beds are really fluffy that you wouldn want to wake up in the mornings. Everyday, the housekeeping lady will give you 2 new bottles of mineral water, you hardly need to buy any water unless you drink a lot.
There's now a message place at the lobby and its very reasonably priced. Especially if you go before 5pm (i think) during their 'happy hour you will save even more!
At night, consider visiting the pop up street stall at the ground floor of the building. We tried their pad thai (highly recommended), Tom Yum soup (not spicy enough), Pineapple fried rice (so-so only), Fried fish (portion is very very small. There's probably only 5 pieces of fish). And if this stall doesn interest you, walk to the end of the street, you will find the famous 'pink shirt chicken rice'. The stall opens till late, so its a perfect place for supper. At night, street vendors will line the streets around that area and you can purchase really cheap tees and clothes there.
