We've stayed here three times in the past three years, and it is always a lovely experience. During our first visit, the staff went above and beyond to help us figure out how to ship some luggage home (we had just come from a two week visit to northern China in December, so we had a lot of cold weather...

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel multiple times and have always enjoyed the wonderful service. The location in Bangkok is excellent as it is close to shopping and transportation. We tend to prefer walking over taking taxis and tuk-tuks and this neighborhood is safe and clean.

Stayed here during the political unrest and while the big central avenues were blocked by protesters and traffic-free. As the hotel had for obvious reasons a very low occupancy rate we were a bit worried about the service levels but we needn’t have worried. The first evening we enjoyed a fabulous all-in buffet, including everything from lobster to foie-gras for...

I recently completed a 2 week stay at the hotel. It is very close to the BTS and this enabled me to avoid Bangkok traffic during weekend shopping jaunts.
