    Hotels in Bangkok...

    I have stayed at a few hotels now, some good some bad.... my current recommendation would have to be the Heritage Hotel
    The Heritage Bangkok On Silom Area - Free Internet - Hotel Official Web Site
    it is situated right next to the Chong Nonsi BTS station.... Our last stay we rented a corner suite as we wanted a bath tub... It is close to most things, but for me the best feature was that it was just a few stations away from the Aussies Visa centre....The suan Lum night bazaar is only a couple of stations away, which is a good place for a bargain and a bite to eat also offering live entertainment...

    Not anymore. Saw its remains the other day....it is just a messy building site now

    Closing of Suan LumThe property was leased from the Crown Property Bureau by P Con Development until March 31, 2006. Tenants were given until April 2007 to vacate the premises, but until late 2010 many vendors remained open. As of early 2011, the night bazaar is now closed. Plans are to develop the property into office buildings, retail areas, residential and entertainment complexes

    Enjoy

    I have stayed at Siam@Siam and was very impressed. Walking distance to MBK and great facilities available. I will be heading to BKK in June but plan to try something different this time. Would like to stay on the Suk as I want to see a little more of the Nightlife BKK has to offer

    I have used the Nasa Vegas Hotel in Ramkhamhaeng Road on the last three occasions.
    Prices start at 690 baht per night and a daily coupon based free gym and spa visit.
    Good value and not far from Sukhumvit and Silom areas.

    On my first trip to Bangkok I stayed at S Sukhumvit Suites, and have to say that it was by far the best hotel I stayed in of the four I used during my stay. It is not the cheapest, rather mid-priced, but right around the corner from Soi Cowboy, the ramp to skytrain is right outside the door, and the entrance to MRT is less the a block away. An air-conditioned mall with currency exchange, shops, pharmacy, etc, is right outside the door. Not much for views, and no balcony, but the rooms are really well appointed and very clean.

    I've already booked the first three nights of my upcoming trip in July there.

    Grand Sukumhit Hotel on Soi 6 near Nana BTS was a great stay. Staff were excellent, and soft beds!

    I can recommend the following hotels

    Majestic Suites - right next to Soi 4. As a guest you can use the gym,pool at the sister hotel, Majestic Grande on Soi 2.

    President Palace on Soi 11. Rooms are very comfortable, great buffet breakfast and decent sized pool.

    Have booked flight dates in October and TG's sister who lives in the area, gave us this recommendation Hotel, so just looking at the moment looks value for money. Through Wego, good rates from Agoda and Expedia.

    Thanks Giggsy your blog on the Hotel is excellent

    I recently stayed at Aspen Suites on Soi 2 and tbh was not very impressed. I then stayed at The Dawin on Soi 4 and was very impressed with that one(Very modern also). I think in my next stay in October(same same AM) I would like to stay in Soi 11 and leaning towards President Palace at the moment

    What didn't you like about Aspen Suites? I loved the place when I stayed there a couple of years ago... be interested to hear your thoughts?

    In Bangkok I now usually stay at Citadines Soi 23 as like the location better.
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    Location was a big thing. The breakfast was disappointing. I thought the room was a waste of space, Kitchen was not very practical (no pots and pans), The staff were rude and pushy to myself and Noy. and The bed was not comfortable and on wheels (which is not good during the physical activities 555). There were a lot of good things as well but the bad things stand out a lot more as a general rule.

    Location? Too close to Nana? I liked the quietness of it, but prefer the Soi 23 area I must admit...

    I loved the big rooms... that feeling of space. And I liked the kitchen.

    I must admit I didn't launch myself enough to test the bed on wheels out... 555

    The staff were good to me and my TG I was with... especially when she threw up all over the reception floor... 555

    I have stayed at Royal Orchid Sheraton and Lebua at State Tower, both of which were great. They are obviously on the high end but what you get for the price compared to what you'd get in Oz is great. Lebua usually has good deals through Agoda. If I were staying in Bangkok for anything over a week I'd be looking at something cheaper, but that's the longest I've ever stayed there.
