We chose the hotel based on reviews on here and Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We had booked a standard studio for a six day stay.
We were warmly welcomed and the receptionist immediately helped us with communications regarding our luggage which hadn't quite arrived as expected.
We were checked into a 3rd floor studio which was clean and spacious and we just collapsed after our long flight. The studio was great, and it had everything we needed. We did have an issue with the bed which had an annoying squeak, and the following morning we reported this to reception and after some initial investigation they asked us to move to an alternative room which was one of their one bed superior rooms on the 7th floor. The main difference between the rooms is more space and a separate lounge and bedroom area, with an additional TV and a larger couch. For us the studio would have been adequate but upgrade was a nice touch for the inconvenience of having to move rooms.
The hotel is really conveniently located. It's on the edge of the business district (hence quieter), but close enough to transport (5mins walk to Lumphini MRT, 10mins walk to Saladeng BTS / Silom MRT) and well connected by road just set back from the junction of Rama 4 and Sathorn Road. The hotel has a TukTuk for free local trips but we didn't use it.
The breakfast is adequate but nothing to shout about. Hot tea/coffee, milk, fruit juice along with toast, cereals, fresh fruit, sliced meat. There's plenty of it, but it can get a bit repetitive after several days. The hotel has plans to fix this with a new kitchen, and if you need something different one day (or you have an early start) head over to Chinese food court in Lumphini Park - cross the footbridge on Rama 4 road just up from HSBC and head right when you get into the park - its open from 4.30am to 10am and has lots of choice.
Top tip: Also worth noting is that the HSBC ATM at the HSBC building at the end of the street (turn right out of the hotel) does not levy the 150 Baht charge imposed by most Thai banks on foreign issued cards.
We really enjoyed our stay and would not have any hesitation to recommend Baan K to others.
