Another day, another hiptique Bangkok hotel in the Sukhumvit Area!
Decided to try this hotel after getting a great deal on http://www.thaihoteldiscounts.com/
(Very good service - highly recommend them. And no, I have no connection with them!)
I didn't realise that the hotel was quite so far down Soi 15. (It's about a 10 minute walk to the Skytrain and/or subway stations, but they have a free Tuk Tuk that'll take you there too. They also provide a mobile number to call if you want a pick up).
Public areas are quite nice and done in a funky design.
There are two towers - 1 and 2. Pool is in tower 2, and wasn't crowded when we were there.
Room was a standard room on the 4th floor. Decent size, not too big. Fine enough for two people. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Good cable TV. Bathroom nicely laid out and designed.
However, water pressure in the shower wasn't very good at all and seemed to go from hot to col to hot to cold again very quickly! I mentioned this to reception but nothing seemed to be done about it. (I didn't expect it to be to be honest - TIT: This is Thailand).
Beware that the minbar and room service are VERY expensive! Buy snacks / drinks out at the 7-11 and on the street to save money.
Breakfast was good. Lovely staff and very helpful. More than enough options for people at breakfast, however, not a lot for Thai people if they don't eat western food - 1 dish, a fried egg and rice and fruit is about all they'll be able to choose from. For farangs though, the breakfast is fine. Good coffee!
Reception staff were friendly and helpful, although I was wondering why at prime check-out time (11.00am) they only had one girl struggling at the desk by herself - it took about 20 minutes for me to be attended to. Not her fault - management/staffing issue.
I also was frustrated that one of the two lifts wasn't working during my stay here. I see on other reviews this has been the case for quite a while. Why not just fix it?
At some times I was waiting up to 5 or 6 minutes for a lift - not really acceptable.
Other than these small things, it was a nice enough hotel. However, I get the feeling that there might be better value in the area, however and will look around next time.
