This hotel is located close to the amenities of Nana Plaza, in the heart of the Nana zone. It has a distinctly Asian feel about it, which makes a pleasant change from most Bangkok hotels, in which you feel as if you could be anywhere in the world.
In the lobby, Thai decor, paintings and statues are pleasantly complemented by the lush foliage with which the lobby is surrounded, and which fills the view out from the windows.
The tropical foliage continues around the medium-sized pool, where small jungle trees provide shade for the small but sufficient number of loungers.
The dining room is adequate for breakfast and lunch, but most people dine out.
The hotel's spa is atmospherically decorated and reasonably priced. Chandeliers give an elegance to the bar area, where tropical foliage and Orinetal antiques are in precedence.
This 10 year old hotel is very slightly faded and worn, but only slightly, and most guests feel it offers good value for money in a good location.
All the suites in this hotel are decorated in the same style, which will appeal to some people but not others. The decor is decidedly Asian, in a rather old-fashioned, elegant and untrendy style that some guests love. Some guests, particularly younger guests, will find the style too dated. All the suites have wood floors, sofas and Asian art on the walls.
Executive Suite 43sqm
None of these units are in the building's corners. The high floors offer reasonable but not spectacular views. Although they are a reasonable size, the Premier Suites feel much more spacious, and are not vastly more expensive.
The Executive Suites are thus not recommended, travellers are advised to book a Premier Suite, or stay elsewhere.
Premier Suite 50sqm
Some of these units are in corners and offer good views, but none offer really great views. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, and each contains a small sofa and an attractive writing desk.
Platinum Suite 75 sqm
These enormous and beautifully decorated suites are good value for money, and offer gleeming hardwood floors, tasteful Asian art on the walls, and a jacuzzi. The living rooms are all built in large alcoves sticking out of the building, meaning that from the sofa there are views in 3 directions.
There are however significant signs of wear in these suites, which appear to be overdue a renovation.
Solitaire Suite 80 sqm
These units have a huge flatsceen TV. Although they are only 5 sqm bigger than the Platinum suites, the space has been utilised better, making them feel much more spacious.
There is no jacuzzi. These suites are in better condition that the Platinum suites, so these units are recommended instead of the Platinum Suites.
The above rates are net per room per night and inclusive of service charge and breakfast for 2 people.
