This hotel is in a great location (if you need the BTS Skytrain), but is just average in most every way, and below average in others. I stayed a few nights at this hotel and by carefully reviewing all the rooms types I selected their largest(?) room that also overlooked the BTS train station. The room was very large, too large for the furniture in place. The room featured a floor to ceiling window that faced the busy train station and had room darkening curtains to shut out the city. The windows did a good job of keeping noise out of the room.
The furnishings in the room were showing wear and maintenance issues, and the hallway was old and looked dirty. The stairwell near our room was loaded with construction equipment that made it very difficult to safely move up the stairs. We used the stairs because the elevators were very slow and the breakfast was served one floor above our room's floor.
Breakfast was pretty awful. The upside to breakfast was that the space overlooked the city and had a big open area on one side (no wall).
We stopped by the pool which is located on part of the buildings multiple rooftops. It was nice to look at but not a pool I'd use because of its size and location.
The neighborhood is fairly good for options to eat. Shopping is a few hops away on the Skytrain.
Staff were pretty awful -- with little understanding of English.
You will be asked to leave a 1000 baht deposit for your room's keycard. A second keycard, requested on day two of our stay, required no deposit.
If you need a less-expensive hotel option that's close to the Skytrain this would be an okay hotel choice -- as long as you can except the downsides, a frustrating check-in and interface with anyone from the front desk, and an awful breakfast experience.
