The hotel is at a great location, the MBK mall (among many others) is within walking distance, the skytrain station is nearby and you can get to Kaosan Road by taxi for less than 100thb.
If you want to stay at this hotel make sure you book a standard room, not a deluxe one as the standard rooms are located at the second floor and the deluxe ones on the third/forth floor and there's no elevator. It might not matter to you when you read this at home but you'll remeber it once you are in bangkok with it's hot-humid climate, there's not really an a/c in the staircase. Besides, there's not really a big difference between the standard/deluxe rooms, in the standard room we even had a nice shower whereas in the deluxe room there was just a bath tub and when you took a shower the whole bathroom was flooded afterwards.
The standard rooms are nicely furnished, you'll find everything you need (a/c, mini bar, safe etc) and it's clean.
You don't have a huge choice for breakfast nor a buffet but it's ok, they have a choice of dishes they'll cook for you.
The staff is very friendly, you've got free wifi with good reception, free bottled water is provided - I would deffenitely recommend the hotel if you are planning a short stay in bangkok mainly for shopping.
There is no pool at the hotel, however you can go to the siam@siam hotel, which is only 100m away, they'll let you use their pool and spa against more or less 500thb - their pool is really nice as it is on the 11th floor.
