Having lived in Bangkok before I wanted to share the city with a friend, but away from the chaos of staying in Sukhumvit and Silom. We were looking for a small, boutique hotel near old Bangkok, and this was a nice place to spend a few nights.
Our room was comfortable, small, clean and the bathroom was a good size and modern.
The WiFi service had just been changed before our stay and only worked in the lobby which wasn't ideal for us, but we managed just fine. The lobby is comfortable and has ample seating.
Breakfast is served along a terrace on the river at a cafe just in front of the hotel. You have several cooked options to chose from the night before and also have access to fruit, yogurt and toast along with the cooked meal.
The hotel has a private river pier and can arrange a canal/khlong tour for you at a reasonable price. There are many restaurants in the surrounding area although not nearly as many as the more crowded hotel areas of the city.
The hotel is within very easy walking distance to the Grand Palace and Wat Po, the pier for canal taxis and Sathorn Pier to access BTS.
Depending on your needs and desires for a stay in a large metropolis this could be a good hotel for you.
