This hotel is location perfect as I travel to the property for work and it is located right by my office. Although the rooms are in need of an upgrade this is made up for in the good service.

The location of the hotel is quite good. It is located near the ploenchit BTS station and walking distance to the nearest shopping mall. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The front desk did a great job checking me in quickly, and I was taken up to my room. Although my company had booked me into a room with a king, I was given a room with two doubles instead, because they were out of the kingbed rooms. That didn't bother me too much, because I don't like sleeping in...

Overall the hotel is pretty good. Whilst it is a little aged, service was great and the breakfast buffet is one of the best I have seen in some time.

10 months old would be ok in a cot and the 10 years old in a spare bed I think but of course you should confirm with the hotel

Central Embassy is only a 5 minute walk away, the same distance as the BTS station which is Ploen Chit. There is a good range of TV channels available in English like BBC and CNN etc, many sports channels also available

Normally when l book, they will hold a deposit against your card, l usually pay for all extras as l go, bar, coffee shop etc

I will be happy to answer any other questions that you have, you will like the hotel and its many restaurants and the service, have a great stay

I don't know when it was built.

The renovations were finished when I was there in July 2016

Yes, in the rooms I was in did have natural daylight

There are quite a few nice restaurants in the area. Hotel dining is excellent, hard to go anywhere else.

Also street food is about 3 blocks away. So fun and so good.
