Plusses: Value for money, free wi-fi, pleasant housekeeping staff, location great for shopping, cheap dining alternatives, and accessible to more commercial places like malls, cinemas. usually if one is a repeat visitor to Bangkok like me, one must be able to live like the average local resident. Was given fruit plates on 2 occasions, was a nice touch. Bed was comfortable and they acceded to my request of 5 pillows.
Minuses: Cable TV channels, though enough, tend to flicker due to poor signal sometimes. Room looks outdated (though clean) except for one solitary cockroach one night...forgivable. The lobby looks eerily dark when you arrive after midnight. For long-staying guests, a free English newspaper would be welcome. The room slippers provided appeared used, almost threadbare. Almost got scalded when the water in the showers could not be adjusted from hot to lukewarm and this went on for the entire duration of my stay. I could have complained but they should have known this all along and corrected it. The traditional Thai wood decors are nice but the hallway floors though well maintained and polished tend to be noisy by the clickety-clackety sound of shoe steps. I did remove my shoes after leaving the elevator on the way to my room because the sound is kinda embarrassing and disturbing to the other guests.
To sum up my experience, yes, this hotel is acceptable.More
