I don't know how this place could possibly be considered a 4 or 5. I'm being generous giving it a 3 because of the location and price.
There is a bridge connecting directly to the BTS station, so that's extremely convenient. The room was nicely decorated but was musty smelling. The bathroom chalking was moldy, the tub/shower didn't drain well and there were tiny little ant looking bugs quite regularly on the sink, desk and dresser areas. Breakfast buffet was good, lots of variety but horrible coffee.
There is just a mass of people staying at this place. And it is not maintained as well as it should be for how heavily used it is. We saw a spare bed in the hall being moved to a room, it was filthy! But you never see things like that when the bed is made up.
We had to wait in line to check in for over 40 minutes, which is very frustrating when you've had a long day of traveling.
We would have looked for some place else to stay after the first night but didn't want to waste the previous time we had in Bangkok. Since we spent all of our days out and about, the place was bearable. Be very weary of the cost of the taxis and the transportation desk! The train across the way is definilty a good way to go when you can.More
