This hotel was perfect for us. It's proximity to temples, khao san road and the surroundings of old town Banglamphu for us was the perfect location - a much more relaxing version of Bangkok than what we saw later around Sukhuvmit/Silom! And when we wanted to go into newer areas of town the taxis were cheap at no more than 200BHT (£4).
Rooms are clean, well decorated an comfortable with great storage and AC. Shared areas and pool are also immaculate and welcoming. The staff are great, nothing is too much to ask of them and they were very kind to us throughout, speaking good English.
The breakfast has quite a lot of choice (bacon, egg, tomato, pancakes, toast, fruit, cereal, tea, coffee) but I'd call it ok rather than amazing. That said it will see you on your way for a day of sightseeing in Bangkok with no problems and it doesn't detract from this being a five star review - this is the best hotel choice if you want a hotel in old town at mid range level.
TIP - like everything in Bangkok this hotel is hard to find! Print this out before you go http://www.lamphutreehotel.com/map.html or tell the driver to go to the Democracy Monument, and from there drive to the Wan Chat Bridge which is the bridge (goes over the canal not the CP river)!
