I have visited Bangkok in early june 2009 and late june 2009. Early june was my very first visit to grace hotel and everything seems ok except the cleanliness issue and not smiling hotel members, in every occasion ready to attack you.
With a group of friends we returned back to Bangkok to continue our fun times, as you do, We asked the taxi driver to take us to Grace hotel again. We checked in, everything was great until next morning. At 6 am in the morning we all woke up with terrible jackhammer noise. It was terrible and unbearable. I went to the reception and asked them to change our rooms some where there would be no noise. Even though hotel was empty the only choice I was given was a room for $3800. They didn't even have the courtesy to warn us about the construction. I wanted to change the hotel straight away but other 3 friends with tight budget accepted the fact and we slept in those room for 9 nights.
Also when you have a non Thai company in your room, you have to pay the hotel 500BHT, last five days I was with the same company but I still had to pay 500BHT for every night due to their unwritten hotel policy. They can not provide the policy but very good at sticking their head in sand pit to avoid you.
It seems like arabs love this hotel and they are not interrupted with the whole thing, maybe they had adjusted all their system to suit the arabs not us westerns.
For me no more Grace hotel, probably I would still go to the disco and coffee shop but that is pretty much it.
I found out that there are quite a few nice hotels in the area much better than Grace, at the end of the day one has to make their own decision but I thought it would be nice to share my only 4 days old experience with you guys. Have fun
