My family and I have stayed at Vie five times now, and it's the best hotel for us in Bangkok! I love the location, size of the deluxe suite, the breakfast buffet, and some of the staff. It's great to stay just steps away from the BTS and so fast to Paragon, MBK, etc.
We first stayed there in January 2010, and loved it. It was perfect for us to have a separate (huge) living room and bedroom for our baby. The breakfast had a good selection of food. Then for a couple of stays it seemed like the variety went down a bit, but during this most recent visit in February 2012, I think EVERYTHING in the hotel has improved. The service is great, the food has gone up in quality and there have been other significant improvements around the hotel. For example, we used to have to take the elevator down to the lobby and walk across the driveway to the pool in the front building. Now there's a walkway to go directly to the pool from the gym.
We've been happy to get to know some of the staff throughout our stays too - Khun Pornthip in housekeeping is a gem. She is friendly and very helpful, she's always remembered my family in thoughtful ways. K. Party in reception is wonderful and has been more helpful than the previous staff we've interacted with there. I'd like to thank K. Oh in dining for arranging a special birthday surprise for my son when he turned 2 during one visit. There are others who have also made our visits pleasant.
The wifi is free in the lobby, restaurant, and business center, but it would be nice to have it in the rooms too. Last year we paid about US$10 per 24 hours.
Very highly recommended.
