Wonderful Place to Relaxby PN guests :) on 11/05/13
On arrival, I was slightly disappointed by the room, which was quite small and basic. There wasn't a closet and I was befuddled by the clear window from the bedroom to the bathroom with only a small curtain blocking the view. But the clever wooden shelving created space, and the room ended up being perfectly comfortable.
What we loved about this hotel was the food and the whimsical lounge area. It felt like being a resort by the pool, drinking amazing smoothies and eating the best yellow curry of our Thailand trip. After a few days in Bangkok, we really appreciated having a mini-resort to return to in the middle of the city. The breakfasts also were fantastic, and we appreciated the cheap coin laundry after the ordeal (and expense) of washing clothes in China. The free welcome snack and drink were a wonderful touch.
The location also grew on us when we began taking the water taxi. The trip to "downtown" Bangkok can be a nightmare with traffic, but this hotel's location was much more convenient to temples and the Golden Pavilion than a location on the Sky Train would have been.
Finally, the staff was nice and helpful and allowed us to cancel two nights when our travel dates changed even though that was against the cancellation policy.
