I think I'm a pretty fair reviewer (read my recent and rather tough review of an Ubud, Bali hotel) so please don't think I toss an "excellent" rating out there too easily!
I usually stay in the Banglapmphu (backpacker/Khao San Road) part of Bangkok but decided to try something different & a little more upscale this time. I stumbled upon the Dream on Agoda and booked it based on reviews, and I could not have been more pleased.
Great location, clean, hip room, comfortable bed, very quiet, great bathroom, home made cookies and some fruit placed in my room each day!? Awesome pool (very clean, this from someone who borders on obsessive about such things), large breakfast buffet (lots of choices, and with the standard Thailand mystery meats pressed and formed into various disconcerting shapes), MOSTLY friendly staff (I found a couple of the reception desk girls to be somewhat cool and indifferent). All this for a mere $50/night!
Really there is nothing bad I can say about this hotel, aside from the turnoff of the very dank, damp-smelling hallways - but it does not permeate the rooms, thank goodness or I would have been outta there.
Maybe there are lots of hotels in this category in this area of Bangkok at a similar price range, I don`t know...all i can say is I was beyond pleased with this choice and will absolutely stay there again. A+.
