I stayed Eastin Hotel Makkasan for 2 nights. This hotel was one of a few options that I could choose, since I had to choose from the list of Rocketmiles. Since I had very big and heavy luggage, and I especially liked Siam area, I figured this hotel could be the best choice for me. However, there was no subway station(BTS or MRT) nearby, and that was very uncomfortable. I always had to take taxi. Airport railway station was about 10min walk away from the hotel, which I felt a bit far to walk with my heavy luggage.
Hotel itself was very nice, it has swimming pool, bar and everything. It worth more than $50.(though I paid $70 per a night through rocketmiles...) But there were not many people staying at this hotel, and I think it is because of its poor location.
Hotel offers free shuttle to subway stations nearby, but it only works every 3 hours(which I think too few) and you have to make a reservation 1 hour before you take it.(it's literally useless... I believe no one uses it...) I suggest hotel to hire a Tuktuk driver, so guests can take tuktuk whenever they need.
Most of the guests are Indians, about 85% of all, and 7% Chinese, 5% Westerners, and 2% others(including myself) in my opinion. Therefore breakfast seemed to be very focused on Indian people. There were very limited choices that I could have because I am not used to Indian and Chinese cuisine.
Overall, it was a fine hotel, but very poor accessibility. I will stay a hotel near BTS station, if I come to Bagnkok again.
