Situated right next to the river, this is a lovely little hotel with an extremely polite, helpful and friendly team of staff. The attached restaurant "The Olive Tree" has a small but great choice of tasty food, with an excellent view of the city. The "No 10 Café" downstairs is also very nice, and not too overpriced considering it's a Bangkok hotel.
The only major drawback for us was the placement of the air-conditioning condenser; it was right outside on the balcony and as it made a lot of noise we did struggle to sleep but we needed to have the air-conditioning on as it was very very hot! We were in room 503 but we can't speak for all the other rooms, they may not all be like this!
The hotel is also only accessible down a rather small and busy side road which made it a little hard to find to begin with and our taxi driver certainly struggled to turn around and leave after he dropped us off! We spent most of our time walking to and from our hotel though and being close to the river ferry and main roads it was a great base to see the sights.
Overall though we had a lovely stay for our first few nights in Bangkok and the good certainly outweighed the bad.
