I've stayed here several times now. All long-term stays. We were looking for a convenient place near a subway/MRT in a local type area.
The rooms are simple square studio-type rooms. The bathroom is small and functional, with a full bath tub and on-demand hot water. The small patios have an outdoor sink and some cabinet space for storage. Like many places in Bangkok, there are no kitchen facilities. The hotel rooms come with refrigerators, and long-stay rooms have them if you need one. You can use a hot plate in your room if you like to cook.
We chose not to have a tv in our room, but they have them available with cable for long stays (they are standard in the nightly hotel rooms).
The facility is a well-kept building with plenty of parking in a back soi of this neighborhood, and is one of the nicer buildings in the area. The maintenance staff is great and they make quick work of any repairs needed.
I believe wifi is included in hotel-type rooms. For longer stays, you can buy wifi access of varying degrees up to 800THB for 30days Unlimited. It is reasonably fast and rarely hiccups, but each login is for a single device only.
The housekeeping staff does a great job, and we never had any issues with them at all. You have to pay extra for it on long stays, but it is not at all expensive.
A/C works well (I think they recently upgraded most of the A/C units), and keeps the room cool so long as you keep the bathroom door closed. the bathroom windows do not close or seal.
Obviously, your reasons for being in Bangkok at all will determine whether this is a good fit for you or not. We liked the proximity to both the MRT and the thriving night market. There are not too many foreigners in this working-class neighborhood, but the locals are all very friendly.
There are more shops catering to women (salons and such) than anything else, but there is everything you would need within a short walk.
Local Tip: Rung is the lovely lady that makes delicious fried chicken at the soi intersection during the day, and the best omelettes over rice most evenings. She is across from Boa's restaurant, which between the two of them, can keep you fed the entire time you're in Bangkok.
There are also at least 4 7-11 stores within about 500 meters of the building, and the night market runs every night until about sunrise.
