Brand new hotel in the heart of Bangkok. Could not be more convenient to the Skytrain or MBK Shopping Mall which is a perfect location for a tourist. This is a no frills hotel. Minor gripes were no bar soap or shampoo bottles in the bathroom (they had European style wall mounted dispensers which I don't particularly like) and a sub par breakfast compared with other Asian hotels (but better than an American Holiday Inn Express). Probably my biggest gripe was the line for check-out. The system they are using looks like it is out of the last century - file folders being passed around by an overworked staff containing Xerox copies of passports. Makes you appreciate the bill slipped under your door system HI Express uses in the USA, only visit the front desk if there is a problem with the already processed bill.
On the plus side was (as mentioned) the excellent location, the price, and the clean rooms and common areas. I would absolutely stay here again as the plus far outweigh the minuses, some of which will probably be worked out after a few more months of operation.
