Book 3 rooms after reading 1 review and it was a good decision. The hotel is very new (<3 months old) and taxi driver never even know there was a hotel there. It is away from the main Silom road, in Soi 28, so never too noisy even during peak traffic.
The hotel is new so everything still has the new smell and look. The receptionists (all female) are very friendly and will try to answer all your questions. Most of their english are quite good.
The location is a bit far from the BTS (Surasak) but still manageable unless you are carrying many shopping bags. The hotel is within walking distance, morning slow walk, to the Chao Paya Tourist Boat. So a day trip to visit the various tourist spots along the river can be done. (Grand Palace, Temple of Dawn, Taling Market, Sleeping Buddha etc.)
For some nightlife a walk to Patpong area (Sala Deang) will take about 15 to 20 mintues.
Also there is a food village (Silom Village) just 2 SOI away but I will avoid the place as the service is terrible and food bland and expensive. Walk further down and you can find some better restaurants.
Overall a good place to stay if you are visiting for a couple of days. For longer stay (unless you have transport) it will be better to stay near to central area (near Siam Centre).
Since I have transport for my whole stay duration (8 days) so it was a good location to explore Thailand. We got a good introductory price of USD35/day so it really value for money.
Oh and the bed is soft and comfortable and the best bed, at this price range, we had for a long time.
