We booked this hotel for two reasons and it turned out to be a good choice - it was our last night in Thailand and after a couple of weeks of travelling and staying in some characterful but basic places we fancied a bit more comfort, as well as wanting easy access to the airport.
We arrived hot and dishevelled after a long journey involving a ferry, a plane, a coach, a train and 2 taxi's. From the moment we walked in the service was good and we felt welcome.
We enjoyed a dip in the nice pool, and enjoyed our first really hot shower for almost 2 weeks before relaxing in the complimentary robe and slippers. We then headed upto the roof terrace bar which has a nice view over the city and then tried the buffet meal in the lobby restaurant which had a varied choice and good quality of food. I tucked into the salad bar which made a nice change from Thai food.
Next morning we missed breakfast as we had an early start but got a taxi from the hotel no worries at 6am for the 5 minute journey to Makkasan station for the airport express which was a really hassle free way of travelling back to the airport and only took 15 minutes for 90 baht.
I probably would not recommend this hotel for an extended stay in Tahiland as it could be any room in any hotel in the worls, and is a bit far out from the main sights, but it was perfect for our needs.
