The room were spacious. The room was cleaned and had balcony. The bathroom had power shower and quality of shampoo and conditioners were good. The staff was friendly. The bell boy got taxi immidiately whenever we would like to go out. Gym facility is good.
The number of lifts compare to hotel size is very low - only 2 lifts! Need to wait long to go up or come down. No vegetraian hot food in breakfast. The hotel is away from center and require traxi to anywere in city. Note it is expensive to find return taxi at night/evening back to hotel.
Staff were very friendly, the location is great and the room (River View on the 9th floor) was very spacious and well laid out. The breakfast was excellent. with a good selection of Thai and western food. It was very pleasant sitting out on the terrace next to the river in the evening whilst enjoying a complimentary drink.
We've stayed here many times over the years and have always enjoyed our stay. However, I feel that the rooms are becoming a little 'tired' and could do with sprucing up a bit. The bath linen is very old now and the towels have no pile left and are a bit like sandpaper when used. The shower head also needs replacing with a more modern type. The curtains were difficult to close and the balcony furniture needs to be upgraded. It was also annoying that there were workmen nearby on our floor using power equipment till quite late in the evening making it difficult to relax.
We was at the side of the hotel and the view was fair. We saw the river, Bangkok, the bridge with ALL the traffic and we saw people’s houses
The security at gate would only allow taxis to drop you off at the back, which meant you either had to walk through a deserted car park or up the steep ramp. The bath looked like it could have done with a good clean with Cif cleaner. Tide marks and there was hair on plug and by the drain.
The breakfast was very good. It has pretty much variety of choices. One of the staff is great! Her name is Bow and she is very accommodating, helpful and well-versed in English command. She's very nice! The room is spacious, pretty neat and comfortable. Also we love the complimentary drinks!
The internet is very slow. We could hardly connect and my kids couldn't do much using their gadgets.
Room is big and clean. Staff are nice.
Wifi connection is not stable.
