Our booking for the hotel was initially scheduled for last November. However due to the floods, the trip was postponed twice till early March this year. We would like to commend the staff and management of Legacy Express for being extremely gracious for honouring the booking without any additional penalty charges.
We stayed for a total of 4 nights. The taxi driver that took us from the airport brought us to Legacy Suites which is also located in Sukhumvit but at Soi 29. It took a while before we got to the correct destination. I think Legacy Express can try to improve the location map online by adding in some driving instructions in Thai. But not to worry, it was only a small glitch.
We are very pleased with the size of the superior room which comes with a very comfortable King size bed and many useful appliances (kettle, safe, hair dryer, mini fridge-hidden in the closet). The current booking also comes with a free half day city tour (admission fees to sights excluded).
The hotel breakfast spread is decent. In the morning, there are street vendors on the right side of the hotel selling breakfast items and during the night food vendors selling affordable and authentic bangkok food can be found just next to the hotel on its left. There is a 7-11 store and a clinic right outside the hotel.
The hotel is walking distance to Ploen chit BTS skytrain. Right underneath the bridge leading to Ploen chit BTS station (on the same side of the hotel) is a thai massage parlor that is very popular with tourists. The service is excellent and we managed to get some reprieve for our tired legs from the incessant shopping.
In short, I would choose to stay at the Legacy Express if I visit Bangkok again.
