Stayed in Vista residence for two nights in the first week of September.
The intention was to shop and Vista is 'strategically' located for that cause. located just a walking distance from MBK and the Siam Chain of shopping malls. A Tesco lotus is also even a shorter walk in the opposite direction.
The main street is crowded and noisy but the alley Vista is in is very quite. I suppose it is a residential house converted to hotel. The taxi find sometimes a bit difficult to locate but the easiest way to guide is to tell them it is just behind the Siam@Siam hotel.
We stayed in the standard room - and trust me the room is far better than just 'standard' spacious, comfortable bed, good clean bathroom. I believe the standard rooms are on the lower floor whereas the deluxe rooms are in the upper floor.
The hotel has no lifts - but they help you carry your luggage. It is also a completely non smoking hotel - you have to get out of the main door to smoke - they have a small table chair placed so that you can sit outside and smoke :p - this was one of teh reason I also wanted to be in the lower floor.
The breakfast is very basic - fruits, egg, bread, milk corn flakes, tea coffee... fruits buffet but the rest are as per your order. We had an early morning flight and left hotel before 7. the stuff arranged toast & coffee for us.
Its a very homely place and I am making an assumption that the food is good and reasonable priced on the basis of the rates and the huge crowd that is their during lunch/dinner time.
Free internet and some computers are placed in the lobby/reception area.
Its excellent value for money. If you want to stay central (in terms of shopping) and not into late night partying (thus don't mind staying away from Sukumvit) its a place u can go for Vista.
I do nto think their is a gym and/or swimming pool - well they don't call themselves a hotel either - 'residence' is the term used and guess it qualifies as a guest house.
wont regret it. I booked from booking.com and got a good deal with breakfast.
I will be very surprised if you book it and regret. In fact I am booking the place for some of my relatives just next week. very likely I will stay here again.
