Service, tried really hard, so A star for effort but half the staff are barely out of school let alone trained in the finer arts of how to make a martini cocktail or how to say hello without sounding overly and falsely ingratiating, almost
painfully embarrassing. The other half are much older more experienced and therefor much more professional and actually very good.
Position, perfect for everywhere, access to all areas of Bangkok via all modes of public transport within easy walking distance. If you're a shopper, I guess the Siam area is for you. For me, travelling six thousand miles to go shopping would be beyond my comprehension. Particularly as everything is either cheap awful tat or the same as you'd get at home but more expensive!!
Although handily placed for ease of access to everywhere the hotel is on the side of one of the busiest
Noisiest roads in Bangkok so making the garden and pool area less than ideal for a quiet relaxing drink, swim or bite to eat. In fact the pool isn't really a pool in my opinion, rather a large water feature with lots of cascading water in an attempt to camouflage the traffic noise. Clever and pretty but unsuccessful.
Food, yeah it was ok, you won't go hungry.
Rooms, the best aspect by far, clean, modern, different, well furnished, kind of a cross between Big Brother and Alice in wonderland, not normally my cup of tea but fun and interesting and made a nice change.
Value for money, well, good luck finding something better for seventy five quid a night!
In conclusion, I don't think we'll be back, too many other hotel experiences to be had out there, but we don't feel our holiday has been diminished at all!
