I once upon a time
choose to stay at this hotel,
because I thought it was close
to the Bumrungrad Hospotal.
It is, if you plan to take
some sort of public transportation
or make walking to the hospital as part
of your daily exercise work out.
The hotel is right across
the street from an Eye Clinic,
right next door to the
Holistic Medical Centre,
near the MRT and BTS transportation line,
and is on a business street, Soi 21 which is,
full of banks and offices of large
and small companies.
It’s a bit far to walk to
the main shopping streets of Sukhumit.
And if you are a night person
who likes to get out of the hotel
for a walk around the block,
this may not be the place.
Rooms & bathrooms are very nice,
include cable TV, DVD players,
and a mini bar refrigerator.
I wasn’t at all impressed with their breakfast.
And this was before I turned organic!
Prices for the room ran around:
2,900 Bahts for the standard
up to 7,500 Bahts for the suite.
Unique Quality: Next to the Holistic Medical Center
Accross the street from the Eye Clinic
I am looking for a "boutique" style hotel for my mother, sister and I in BKK for three nights in February. I have looked at the Shangra-la, Sukhothai (both too expensive I think) and Siam @ Siam. The latter is more reasonable and can accomodate a triple room. However, Siam @ Siam is a tower style hotel and I am looking for something maybe with gardens. My mother is elderly and although our budget for 3 is $200 or under, we would like the most quality and beauty that we can afford. If anyone has any suggestions, pls reply. I haven't been to BKK in 15 years; prices have changed!
Something a bit unusual and well within your budget might be the Eugenia. A small older style luxury hotel. You can afford a suite there. Maybe not much in gardens but the unique style of the place might make up for that.
I just came back from Bangkok and stayed at the Siam @ Siam. It's a gorgeous hotel indeed. However, if you don't like tower-style buildings, you could check out the Davis hotel. It's a little off the path but was my second-favourite after doing all my research before my trip. At the end the Davis lost due to its location, which is a little off the path. The buildings and hotel layout is very nice though...
I have a detailed review of the Siam @ Siam with a couple of pics on my VT Bangkok page in case you're interested...
Maybe you can search for 1) Triple Two 2) The Old Bangkok
you could also consider the Nai Lert Park Swissotel Hotel - not exactly "boutique", but it does claim to have a nice garden, which is fairly unusual in Bangkok.
Consider the recently opened Marriott Courtyard, which is right in the center of the city's entertainment/shopping area (on a relatively peaceful road just behind the Hyatt Regency). Also consider staying at a serviced apartment, such as the nearby Fraser Place Urbana Langsuan (www.frasershospitality.com) which has a garden feeling even though it is a high-rise. The Swisshotel Nailert (fka Hilton) has very nice resort-style gardens front and back.
I like Siam@Siam Design too,but I would recommend other hotel is Bangkok Boutique Hotel,hotel deco is very tastefully done up. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Food served at the cafe is good. It is less than 5 mins walk to the MRT station.
