Editorial review:

This ultra modern hotel used to be a downtown YMCA and the reminders of its former incarnation are the overly small City rooms which are compensated for by the spacious luxury bathrooms. The décor is starkly black and white with a distinctly urban feel. You’ll feel like you have arrived when you relax in the exclusive Met Bar. The sleeping rooms continue the same high tech decorating scheme and are a great choice for the traveler who loves the feel of super modern youthful city life.

                            The staff were very helpful and friendly, they made reservations for me and gave me directions and advice etc. The room was very comfortable and dinner in the hotel restaurant on my first night was lovely too, the staff here too were excellent and made me feel at home as I was on my own for dinner.

                            there was no hot water in the shower for the whole of my stay and even after I informed reception it was never fixed.

                            The hotel is beautiful, the rooms large and well appointed and the staff friendly and very helpful. The two restaurants and the bar had wonderful food and great service. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

                            I like the doble bed metropolitan room facing Sathorn Rd.

                            Breakfast area used to be on the 1st floor next to the pool which was nice but now on second floor which is not as nice.

                            The Welcoming Staff - I travelled with my son who is four and the staff were very friendly to us and made me and him feel very relaxed. Nahm the attached restaurant was outstanding.. the rooms and public areas were all very slick

                            I thought Glow the cafe type restaurant lacked atmosphere was over priced for what it was.. The staff were outstanding however

                            The bathroom was as we expected from the pictures, clean and luxurious. The staff were very friendly and warm. The room was simple, clean and comfortable however didn't reflect the website images. The entrance foyer was cool and funky and in a different area we would have loved staying here!

                            The pool area was very smelly, so much so that we couldnt lay there. This was not the fault of the hotels, but we later discovered that the hotel was situated right next to a big rubbish dumping area. This is not the hotel to visit for a relaxing city break as it is a long way from the desirable areas of Bangkok and the nearest amenities were in a rather 'seedy' and smelly area of town. The bar was nice but had little atmosphere and for around £9 - £10 per cocktail we were disappointed.

                            Amazing hotel, very 'zen' style and design. I am usually very particular about the cleanliness, and this was the first ever hotel I have stayed in where I couldn't find fault with the cleanliness of the room. The hotel staff were excellent and also provided a bottle of wine and chocolates to myself and my husband on arrival after hearing we were on our honeymoon. Super spacious bathroom (though we did have a superior room) and a great shower. When you got a taxi from the hotel, you would get a card with the taxi number plate and your destination written on it so you would not be ripped off or worry in any way. Great great hotel, would stay there again! Also Banyan Tree hotel is right next door and the bar has unbelievable views of Bangkok!

                            Great design overall. Simple, clean and modern. Spacious bathroom. Great food at restaurants. Nice and cozy new year eve count down party with fireworks.

                            Not so convenient around for food and shops. It seems that lots of taxi drivers are not familiar with the area.

                            Loved the fact that there is a yoga mat in each room so you can really do stretching in the morning or evening!

                            Not many taxi drivers seem to know the location so need to send guests the directions in Thai
