- Too old to stay - Take more than 20 minutes in order to walk to Asiatique - Too expensive - Kids will be extra charged either way - Traffics very sick - If you decide to stay here especially with your family, I won't recommend!

The hotel has a beautiful reception and clean, spacious rooms. Slightly let down by aged and worn bathrooms. The views were absolutely exceptional of the city, especially at night. We slept most nights with the curtains open as it was so beautiful. The hotel is a little out of the way if you are wanting to spend most of your...

Good bed, fantastic view (chose panorama room), silent neighbors or well isolated. Full variety of coffee, tea. bed lamps :-) ... Nice Asiatique area. Bad: In rain season almost it's a must to use taxi; splashing roads for walking. Dark shower corner. The BTS doesn't reach here & the taxi was slow to city in dense traffic.

We looked passed all this until we began...

I just stayed for one night but had a pleasant stay here and found it to be a very clean and modest hotel with everything that you need. Good location, a short walk to Asiatique. Also very useful 24/hr concierge.
