I stayed in Samran Place last February 2008. I forgot to write a review here but thought that I really had to contribute since the reviews here in tripadvisor was really helpful to travellers like me. I chose Samran Place mainly because of the good reviews posted here and was not disappointed. The place was really very clean. We stayed in the 8th floor and maybe because it was February, the weather was not that hot. The building next door was still under construction but there was no contruction noise heard during the night. Unlike other reviews here, the breakfast was great taking into account the low price of the room. Singapore was more expensive.
Service from the reception area was adequate. I think the reception lady mentioned in the earlier reviews was also there but we had minimal interaction with her because she looked snooty. The night receptionist (a man) was alright but not very friendly. The only good exception was the guard who assisted us in getting a cab to the airport on our last day. Hope they read this review and give that night guard a pat on the back!
Since we hardly stayed during the day, we really did not have much contact with the hotel staff. We were just happy that the hotell have such high standard of cleanliness.
Our room (I think No. 808) was really very nice, the decor and style was reminiscent of the 1970's, with the glass doors leading to the terrace, although the view from the terrace should have been facing the other way since the terrace was located beside the building under construction.
The best part was the location of the hotel, near the main street, the MRT, shopping places but was in a much quieter street.
All in all, our stay in Bangkok was really enhanced by this hotel.
