I have used this hotel on a couple of occasions, as it it good value for money, and the rooms appear to have been renovated in the last few months. The decor inside each room is modern, and both a/c and hot water systems are very efficient.
The beds are comfortable and clean although not of a massive size.
The rooms have a modern look, although this includes grey painted concrete floors, which may not be everyone's taste. The bathrooms are spotless with walk in wet rooms for the showers. Unfortunately, some of the rooms are a little on the small size, and the ones which front the main road, can be a little noisy.
Check-in was very efficient, and there is a 24 hour Dim-sum restaurant next door, although as the name suggests, the menu is a little limited for western tastes. However, they do an American breakfast, which can be used in emergencies !
The hotel offers internet, but I found the wifi to be dismally slow, and in the end, I found it easier to come to the lobby and connect to the adjacent restaurants router, when my surfing was important.
I guess the main advantage of this is hotel is the location, being 3-4 minutes from the MRT (subway) station, and about 10 minutes walk from the Makkasan Airport link terminal.
You may feel the hotel is a little isolated, but if you walk out of the lobby, turn left, then right at the main road intersection, you do start to see a few bars and coffee shops. Alternatively, get on the MRT for one stop, and you will be at Asok BTS station in the heart of Sukhumvit.
