Great- as it right beside bars, restaurants, shopping, Skytrain, etc. but yet it is still quiet.
Soi 6 is about 200m from Sukhumvit and Nana Skytrain station. Perfect for getting around Bangkok. I picked this mainly for the location and the price offered was very good.
Was fine but I have had better. My room was not ready at 13.30 and I had to wait an hour for it to be so.
It was an odd shape. I prefer open large rooms and this was really 2 corridors with a small bedroom. See the photos. The seating/TV area did not appeal to me at all. I asked to be changed. The 2nd room was not as big...I think I was downgraded! (?).
Bed comfort was very good and the bathroom was spotless.
Big minus. The TV remote for the bedroom is a cheap flimsy thing which means you can not choose your channel. If you want, say, channel 25 you have to press 25 times!! Messy and so out of date.
I can't really review as I had only a tea and a not so good dry chocolate cake (unfinished) in the cafe. The cafe needs atention to offer more and a better quality choice.
I had a look at the dinner buffet which has a good choice and presented well.
This is lovely and a good place to chill. The entrance to it is dreadful and management need to sort this asap.
Average and what I would have espected. I however would have expected a complimentary coffee/tea because of the delay but it wasn't offered. Bags were not taken to the room promptly and when my GF arrived 2 days later I actually had to go and take her bags myself!
As said this is not in the league of the 5 stars such as, The Oriental, The Banyan Tree, Shangri-La, The Penninsula, or Sofitel 4 of which I have stayed in. The Landmark, where I have also stayed, around the corner is a 4 star and more than equal to The Grand.
The Grand is a decent average large 4 star that has a few issues. The price was attractive but when we returned to Bkk we did not stay and vouched for another 4 star not a million metres away and found this much nicer.
