It’s amazingly difficult to find from the nearby station if you haven't been before. Either go equipped with plenty of clear maps, or pay the 50baht or so and get a tuktuk to take you... although make sure you have the full address as no-one seems to have heard of the place.
It's a nice modern hotel, which is a bargain for the price (paid £23 p/n inc. b/fast). Upon arrival you are given a voucher for a free welcome drink, which is a nice touch, and the fruit punch cooled us down after our trek trying to find the place! Our standard room was compact, with a queen bed but very tight on space. My brother paid a little extra and got a bigger room with king sized bed and looked worth the extra couple of pounds.
Rooms are quiet, the bed was comfortable, and there is a modern bathroom with good shower. There is a small bar/restaurant which is keenly priced and serves tasty food, the yellow curry and tuna sandwich being our favourites.
Once you get your bearings, the hotel is actually in a good location, 5 minutes walk to the skytrain station or the direct train to the airport. Also nearby is Coco Walk, a nice lively area with bars which seem favoured by the locals. All things considered I would recommend the BW, and would definitely stay there again if in Bangkok.
