Let's get the elephant in the room out of the way: yes the location is not in as fancy an area as most 4* hotels. The entry to the hotel is in a soi (ie an alley) and therefore it looks a bit more decrepit than ideal. That said it is absolutely safe (we were two chicks travelling by ourselves and did not feel theatened for a second) and let's be lucid; the reason why the hotel is so incredibly quiet is precisely that it is a little way away ! The tropical garden is a peace haven in the chaotic Bangkok and everything is there for the guests to relax.
Other than that, I'd be hard rpessed to find anything wrong with this place: great service, kooky and original look, comfortable rooms, great breakfast, convenient amenities (kids play area, internet area and massage spa in a little teak open house opposite the restaurant). The staff is great and incredibly relaxed - flexible and non intrusive.
Do you need a TV with 125 channels and a telephone in your room? If so, this is not the place for you. If not and you value rest, relaxation, service and friendliness, run there !
