We booked this hotel at a steal. 2 nights for 3 pax with free daily international buffet breakfast at SGD $165 per night.
We were firstly charmed by the spacious room that had ample walking space despite having 3 beds. The bathroom was huge, with bathtub, standing bath and the necessary toilet facilities. There were many free TV channels for us, from HBO to BBC, though they weren't much useful since Bangkok had so much for us to be occupied with out of the hotel. We absolutely love the breakfast spread every morning, with on-the-spot fried eggs, cooked noodles, Chinese, Continental and even Japanese food! The free tuk-tuk service to send us out to the BTS Nana station was much appreciated since the hotel is located behind the quiet lane of Soi 6.
This leads me to the downside of the hotel location. For the 3 of us, all girls, it was slightly of a goosebump experience everynight as we walked back to the hotel. The lane is poorly lit with vehicles zooming past. We would have wished for the tuktuk to pick us up at the station back. That would have been most wonderful.
The bathroom mirror had a huge stain but no effort had been made to remove it, making is very unsightly and a thorn in the otherwise very lovely room.
We were slightly disappointed to know that the 3rd bed was a makeshift instead of a proper one as depicted in the website picture.
However, all bad feelings were demolished at the last minute when we were leaving Bangkok. I had earlier misplaced my book in the room. To my relief, the housekeeping had kept it safely and even wrapped it up with plastic, awaiting for my return to retrieve it.
A worthy stay for the price, but better had a man around to feel safer walking down the lonely lane.
