I thought this hotel was fine for the price. The location was very good - we mostly took taxis everywhere we needed to go but most of the rides were quick and cheap enough. The hotel is not near any of the public transit options - subway or Skytrain, so be prepared to walk, take a taxi or learn the bus system.
We were on the sixth floor of the hotel. We never had hotel noise, although the traffic noise was loud. We put white noise on our cell phone and always had the a/c blasting so that drowned it out enough. The room was small, but comfortable.
We had plenty of hot water at night for showers, but hot water was difficult to come by in the morning. The water would cycle between warm and cold. If you want the room serviced you have to turn in your hotel key and let the staff know that's what you want. Otherwise they won't do anything to your room. That didn't bother us, but we did have to ask the staff for more toilet paper and bath gel.
They also require a 500 baht deposit for the room key. You get this back when you check out. However, this was our last hotel before leaving the country, so it was a bit nerve wracking to know we had 500 baht to spend at the very end. We ended up taking a taxi to the airport and negotiated a 500 baht rate with the driver, so that took care of that.
The staff wasn't incredibly helpful in terms of helping us plan our days so we handled all of that on our own. There is a restaurant in the hotel, but we always went out for our meals. There is a great restaurant down the street that we ate at nearly every day. Jenny Restaurant is to the right as you walk out the door of the hotel, walk two blocks then turn right again. There are four tables outside with plaid tablecloths. Great dinners and breakfasts that are very cheap.
