Good, not excellent.

A nice hotel and comfortably furnished. It's not Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, though. There is a lack of atmosphere and service isn't as polished as you would expect from a luxury brand such as MO. It's a level below Four Seasons for example. The location is also unusual; between a major road, a railroad and a construction site.
