Swissotel Le Concorde, Bangkok - Best hotel in Ratchada area

Introduction Probably the most posh hotel in Ratchada, it does have a regal feel to it.The rooms were extremely large with card controlled access. It is only 2 minutes away from Exit 2 of the Huay Kwang MRT station. This allows you to go into central Bangkok easily.From Don Meaung (DMK) airport, getting here was fast and only around THB200 - THB300.Room and bathroom is extremely spacious. Room was carpeted with nice sofa and study area. Wifi is readily available - no restriction on device numbers. Television had very good cable channels. Bed was comfortable.In the bathroom, there was a shower rain, bathtub, sink and toilet. Hot water is quickly available. No major issues. When i needed an ironing board and iron it was sent in a jiffy.However i had one very major issue, i booked a King bed but was given a twin bed. Let me make this clear, there is a reason we book the type of room that we want - i will not tolerate an explanation like "subject to availability". If it is not available, then DO NOT list a room showing it's "availability". And Swissotel Le Concorde Bangkok, since you will be reading i want to let you know how extremely disappointed i am by this type of cheap response at reception. I am a GOLD member at Hilton, Langham, Marriot, SPG - this would never have happened at any of these hotels. If there are no king size beds, you will know from the start - not be mislead like me. I expected more from a hotel that markets itself as luxurious 5 star. Overall a nice stay other than above rant, which could have been a bad day for me. Let's not take anything away from the stay which i enjoyed nonetheless
