I'm still in the hotel as I'm writing and this is our second stay here. Different room style this time I preferred the one on the second floor (that is the lower level on this hotel). First the location. I think if you come to Bangkok this is one of the best places to stay. It is on a busy road in the heart of Chinatown. A short walk you are in the maze of this colourful quarter, lively and vibrant. Tough transports and traffic are horrendous, like in most of the city. But the river is close to use the boats (by far the best way to go around) and the main rail station is just 10 minutes away (and the metro), until they open the extension of the blue line. The hotel itself is great, clean, cheap and stylish however from last time it lost a bit of charm. The rooms are very well presented and decorated, like early 20th century China. The breakfast is great as it is the restaurant (by the way just across the hotel the Cantonese house have terrific dim sum for nearly nothing). The suggestions I would like to make to the hotel are the following: the street level tables should be re thought as a proper bar, caffee or tea place for hotel customers and people walking along the street, I know there is on on the third floor with the restaurant but the one at street level could be a great place to start or end a day. For the rest a gym would be good but you cannot have everything. I suggest to everyone to try this great place.
