This is very worth to stay to relax, be quiet from any distractions, great views, and can sense to the city life in Bangkok. But the hotel is a bit far from tourist attraction, I truly recommend to stay here if you come in team or group of family then you can organize a tour to see Bangkok and come back to stay here. This hotel has a big room with fair price. This should be good if the hotel can provide more option on halal food and vegan meal as options and the food is very nice. For halal food, this should be found not far from the hotel, there are muslim restaurants and community to see. No worry to stay and explore nearby.

I have no idea how this hotel got so many good reviews. It was literally falling apart. This hotel was our least favorite of the entire trip. The lobby and buffet area are beautiful and well kept, but everything else about the hotel was dated and broken. We disliked this hotel so much that we left after the second night into the trip and forfeited the Nonrefundable room we paid for. Worth it. We moved to a different hotel that was half the price and WAY nicer. I can’t believe they charge $60 USD per night for this. The rooms were so old. The sheets had holes in them. The mattress was sunken. The bed would collapse onto your toes if you tried to get in and your foot was too close to the edge. I will probably lose a toenail from this happening twice. The shower was patched together with tubing to (unsuccessfully) keep the water from leaking all over the floor. If me and my fiancé both showered in succession, there was a gallon of water on the slick tile floor. The shower was raised about 4” so you had to step out and down onto a very wet floor. It’s a wonder that neither of us slipped and cracked a tooth. The tile separating the bathroom from the room was a 1” tall barrier that we definitely stubbed our toes on multiple times. The sink was cracked. The paneling on the ceiling was moldy and falling apart, as was paneling throughout the hotel. The only reason I’m giving 2 stars instead of 1 star is that the breakfast buffet included in our stay was reasonably good, the water pressure was nice, and the staff was nice. I will not stay there again. This hotel was absolutely the low point of our trip. It’s walkable to Asiatique and has some nice views of the city, but is far from pretty much everything else and we had to use Grab to get anywhere.
