2 of us stayed for 6 days and it is a truly lovely place. We got a free upgrade to the biggest apartment available despite paying for the cheapest one - the hotel may not want us publicising this but it was fantastic on their part!
The room is incredibly spacious and well lit, with lots of natural light. Everything in the apartment was brand new and the place truly felt like home. A big bonus was the True Sports channel, which showed many Premier League and La Liga matches live, which I was not expecting. There is also a home theatre system available, although this seemed a little wasted as you could only use it with the DVD player and not the TV. It would be great if they could add MTV Asia - we loved listening to Thai music at our previous hotel stay in Bangkok.
The kitchen was also somewhat lacking - there were not enough utensils included to be able to cook a decent meal. Breakfast was very basic - bread, cereal and fruit, although this is to be expected with a serviced apartment.
Location-wise, it's in a quiet part of Bangkok, opposite Lumphini Park and near the downtown business area. It's about a 5 minute walk to the Lumphini MRT, and a 10-15 minute walk to the Sala Daeng BTS, which travellers will be using a lot if they want to head into the shopping belts of Siam etc. The walking got a bit tedious after a while, but I believe there's a free tuk-tuk service which we probably should have utilised.
Overall, the place and service was amazing and would definitely consider staying here again in future.
