Nice hotel ,not so great location
Posted Jan 5, 2014
The hotel is excellent ,very new ,comfortable beds,spacious rooms.
The food was also very good and quite reasonably priced.
Downsides: its in phram 3 ,which isn't a great location for getting around.I know Bangkok well (lived there for 5 years)if I was a newbie taking a holiday ,then I would find this location difficult.The traffic in the area is bad ,especially around Asiatique (which is fast becoming a major attraction)its a 5 minute taxi to the closest sky train station ,so you will have to rely on taxi drivers ,which is never a good thing .
Rwmeber to take the hotel card out with you ,so you have some chance of easily finding the place again!
Another problem -The staff really need to improve their English language ,it can be hard to communicate. At breakfast it took 5 minutes to explain I wanted bacon ,not ham and became infuriating!
In summing up :
Really nice hotel ,amazing views of the river and city ,great price ,but not for everyone .
