Penfold's Opinion:

I personally think this hotel is an absolute gem and one of the most under-rated hotels in the city. The standard of the rooms, level of service and quality of the food in their restaurant-cum-cafe is second to none, compared to the price that you're paying.

The location is great, being close to the Nana BTS (sky train) and there are plenty of bars and restaurants in the area. The only downside is there are lots of market traders/touts along the route trying to sell you tacky toursit crap!!!! But c'est la vie!!!!

However, I always urge people to do their own research before visiting Bangok and Thailand in general, as this will make your stay more pleasurable and you won't experience any nasty surprises.

Although I like this hotel and would reccomend it to any friends or family going to Bangkok, I am sure there are just as many people who won't like it!!!!!
