My boyfriend and I stayed at TenFace for 2 nights upon recommendation from a Thai friend. The hotel staff were friendly, bubbly and helpful, and the decor is quite cool and modern. Our spacious room actually had a separate living room and kitchen, as well as a bedroom, and both rooms had small balconies. Overall there were some cute touches, like the soap flavors changing everyday, to the customized short films telling us about the sights in Bangkok. You also have the option of borrowing an ipod kit from the front desk. The hotel is quite out of the way if you walk (10-15 minutes before hitting a commercial area). If you choose to take one of the multiple free hotel shuttles, then it becomes quite convenient (5 minutes). They are also really nice about letting you check out late (i checked out 1 hour 15 mins after official time). My only complaint would be that there seems to be a conspiracy between the hotel staff and the taxi drivers. Tenface recommends that guests going to the airport do a 400 Baht package, within which the taxi driver pays for all highway fees. When asked whether we should do a meter or the package, all the hotel staff uncomfortably say that we should take the package, because it is "same same" as the meter, regardless of what time of day it is ( even though they say the point is to avoid extra fees from notorious thai traffic). Well I decided to do the meter just to compare, (which my driver (that the hotel called) was evidently not happy about) and guess what - it was 305 Baht including all highway fees and minor traffic ( i left at 2pm). Now i know that 100 Baht is not a big deal when converted into USD, but I am still offended that Tenface tried to scam me. For such a nice hotel and lovely staff, well. I'm pretty taken back. Anyway, yes, I would recommend TenFace, but bear in mind not to trust them completely. Oh and my salmon sandwich was 280 Baht and was small and dry.
