“Good location”
Reviewed 10 May 2012 via mobile

Hotel is located well for touring Bangkok, close enough to the sky train to make use of it by walking,hotel room is spacious and clean,only down side in the room is the aircon does not see em to have the power to keep the room cool, aircon unit is also located on the balcon of your room so is very noisy, light sleepers will suffer by having to switch the aircon off to sleep,breakfast is good and plenty, dinning area is very dark though, but clean and sufficiant.Got the Wi-Fi pass word from the bell boy so was able to use it during my stay.Taxi from airport to hotel was 500 but and the hotel wanted to charge 800 But for the return trip, when I said was to much the price was lowered to 500bht so be aware you can get it for that price if you tell them your going to use one of the outside taxis because they to expensive.I would use this hotel again!

This hotel is in a great location, close to the busy life on Silom but not too close. The sky train station is around the corner, so the rest of the city is easily accessible. My room was spotless and the staff are just extraordinary - so helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this hotel.

Glad we booked the rooms at the February NATAS fair cos the hotel is not only centrally located, it is also pretty convenient and not too costly to get around to places we had planned to visit. The upgrade from standard to deluxe also helped cos I can't imagine staying in a standard room when we saw the spacious but elongated room with minimal furniture but comfortably clean. Yes, the glass walls of the bathroom can be a bit daunting and challenging! However, thankfully they had blinds! It must be a fad cos our recent stays at some hotels in China also boasted glass walls for their bathrooms! This hotel got my good vote as its lobby is free from the mass tourists and noise plus friendly staff! However, its restaurant could have been a bit brighter.

Room Tip: Better chose a deluxe room!

Very good quality of the hotel rooms and marvellous sight on the Bangkok's skyline.
Swimming pool on the roof - great views. Swimming pool not an enormous one but also not crowded.
Glass walls in the bathroom - quinte unusual but interesting experience.
Very helpful, english speaking hotel staff.
Breakfast - big choice, good food. Hotel in the walking distance to SkyTrain.

We stay for 5 days in this hotel for Songkran Festival. When we checked in, we were amazed that the room was so spacious.. and well designed. It has sofa and working desk with super large bed.. The location is perfect for Songkran Festival, since it's not really in the heart of Silom, so you can avoid the crowd on the D-day. There were only 2 things that bit annoyed me. I think the wall between rooms are not really sound proof, since I could hear people from our room neighbor turning on/off their lamp and the breakfast. I expect they can put some variations in their menu because as far as I remember, they served the same menus every day as long as we stayed there. But still It's a really enjoyable hotel. I like to be staying here again someday.

I must confess I was concerned about staying here at first due to the external appearances here. However, inside had been recently updated and I felt very comfortable. I was only staying two nights before heading to Coconut Island off Phuket, so I was not so worried about the high rise aspect for a few nights. The location here was very good, about 10 minutes from the BTS and a short taxi ride to most locations. I would recommend a deluxe room as you get some decent extras i.e. free wifi. I would also recommend a higher room as I can imagine the lower ones could be a little noisier. I never visited the pool so can not comment. Rooms are of good size, balcony is a waste of space however and the rooms are poorly illuminated. Otherwise I thought this was a decent place to stay for a short time.

I would recommend this hotel.

Although, the rooms were clean enough, the a/c did not have the power to keep the room cool.
There is glass walls around the toilet/bath area which gives you Absolutely no privacy from anyone else in the room.

This was an upgrade to a "superior" room and I was very disappointed.
