Based on my extensive experience of staying at this hotel for over a year and a half, I believe I am the most qualified individual to provide a professional critique. Firstly, I must emphasize the exceptional level of customer service displayed by the staff, who are consistently helpful, caring, and dedicated. While occasional shortcomings can occur, it is important to acknowledge that perfection is an unrealistic expectation. I would like to commend the outstanding managerial skills of Kung, the female assistant, and Parkpoon, the General Manager, as they ensure that tasks are promptly addressed upon request. The hotel's strategic location is conveniently situated near a multitude of attractions, ranging from the vibrant Kaosan Road to various temples and Nana Square in Sukumvit. It takes approximately 15 minutes to reach any of these destinations, making it an ideal choice for sightseeing. Additionally, the availability of complimentary parking is a notable advantage, although it may be subject to limitations during weekends. I have personally experienced the kind and diligent nature of the housekeeping staff, who have even taken the initiative to assist with dishwashing. Their exceptional work ethic deserves recognition. Now, let's delve into some drawbacks of the hotel. Firstly, the elevators exhibit signs of aging, emitting noticeable noise that may affect the overall ambiance. Furthermore, the building itself shows signs of aging, including leaks and similar issues, which can detract from the overall experience. Although the balconies provide satisfactory views, it is advisable to opt for higher floors for an even better vantage point. Particularly, the side facing Icon Siam offers the added allure of witnessing romantic fireworks nearly every weekend. However, it is worth noting that the heavy traffic in the vicinity can be quite daunting and may impact travel times. Lastly, while the pool offers picturesque views, it is regrettably outdated and may not meet the expectations of guests seeking a more contemporary setting.

This hotel was located in a good area, it was safe day and night, close to Mahonakon building. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The negative thing I have to say is that the room had oldish furniture, towels and bedsheets. Some were stained even. Also the pillows were very hard, on the third day my boyfriend asked the cleaning lady to change his pillow and she was very nice to help us. But the thing that made our stay terrible were the old aircondition units. Being situated on the balcony the noise coming from them was very very annoying and we didn’t get good sleep. Some neighbours even let the aircon on for the entire night and it was excruciatingly annoying to hear that noise plus the fact that even the bed was vibrating from it. We stayed at this hotel after someone did a little promo for it recommending it but unfortunately it’s a hard no from us in the future.
