I have now stayed at Areca two times. It has great pools, great staff, clean rooms and the Thai food in the restaurant is decent. The rooms are a bit dated, but they are spotless and have an in-room safe and good closet space. Unfortunately, they only have bathtubs, which suck if you're a shower person -- but for that price, I can't complain.
As it's on Soi Diana Inn, there's everything you need within walking distance -- or a short song taew ride if you need to go shopping at Central etc. The only problem I had in both stays is that the Internet in the rooms was a bit weak or impossible to connect at times. I usually had to go down to the coffee shop to get a reliable connection. So if working from your room is important, this isn't the place to be. If, on the other hand, you want to chill by the pools (there are two), have a run on the treadmill (no aircon, but a great treadmill. Better than the one at my gym in Japan), hit the bars and restaurants on 2nd road, Soi Diana Inn, Soi LK Metro or Soi Buakhaow, then this is the place for you.
