The staff were all very friendly and helpful and willing. There was easy, free internet access. Breakfast was delicious, different every day (3 days). The room was charming, the AC and ceiling fan both worked great. The neighborhood had lots of local atmosphere, definitely not touristy. The boat lines were a 10 minute walk away, past the flower market, easy to get everywhere I wanted to. The hotel isn't on a main street, so it was very quiet and peaceful.
Though the reception staff were very willing, they didn't seem to have a lot of "tourist" information. You need to get that somewhere else. Do climb the 3 flights of stairs to visit the organic roof garden. If you don't want to climb a lot of stairs, try to get a room on a lower floor. My only other issue is that the rooms aren't secure (for leaving valuables - computer, camera, etc.). My room had a balcony, the window to it didn't lock at all, and the door was pretty flimsy and the maintenance staff left it unlocked. On the other hand, nothing was taken.
I hope to return to Thailand in a year or two, and this is definitely where I will spend my time in Bangkok!
