Nice hotel. It has an open air lobby which flows to the pool area in the middle. You are next to schools and the only access is a narrow road in and out. There are some street vendors that open up later in the day. This does make it difficult if you are trying to enter or exit by vehicle when several people are walking through the street. The hotel has a cafe & restaurant across the street from the lobby. The restaurant has a great water & city view, especially at night. We had evening drinks there. This is also the same location for the hotel breakfast. The hotel is located a short walk from the ferry which takes you across to the Temple of the Emerald Buddha & The Grand Palace. This make is fairly easy to visit those sites as well as Wat Pho (Reclining Buddha). We had a pleasant stay & I would recommend if looking for a hotel in this area. This seemed to be a less busy area of Bangkok in the evenings, which was nice.
