Hotel at Sukhumvit Soi 5

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 14, 2006

I found this hotel through this website - atsiam.com. The hotel rate that I paid through this website is the cheapest that I can find after cross-checking with other websites.

I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights (7-11 December 06) and it is right next to Gulliver's Travellers Pub and Bar. It is also close to the BTS Skytrain - Nana Station (only 3-4 minutes walk), Foodland, 7-Eleven and several internet cafes.

I would recommend this hotel to Muslims as this hotel caters mostly to the Middle East tourists and therefore you would see a lot of women in veils. They also do not serve any pork at the restaurant - Thai Food Terrace (but I am not sure if the food is 'halal' - if in doubt just order fish!)

Unique Quality: This hotel has the most cleanest bathroom I've ever seen!. I've stayed at many hotels (from budget to 5 stars hotels) but this hotel is the cleanest. Trust me when I say this as I am a total hygiene freak!! The photos of their accomodation (and bathroom) on the internet does not do justice to the real thing!!

Directions: If you take the Airport Shuttle Bus, stop in front of the Landmark Hotel. You have to go to the other side of the road to reach Soi 5. On Soi 5, the Amari Boulevard Hotel is on the right, turn left. Gulliver's is on the right & the hotel is on the left.

The Bangkok Sahara was quite a find. Basic - tiny - a wee bit dodgy at the entrance, cos it's in a arabian area (and we are not arabic!) BUT there were no issues and it was really comfy. The rooms were small but new and nicely decorated. Most importantly they were CLEAN. No clean that it felt brand new. The entrance looks anything but new, but the rooms were nice. It had a bit of a powdery smell...don't ask me why, but nothing was dirty.

Downside - no extra pillows. One each is the quota. No room service. If there was we missed it cos everything was written in arabic. TV was basic, but that's not what we were there for. no pool or anything. But great location. Just outside is a nice bar, food, supermarket, foodland, and cabs galore for those who need to get out. http://bangkok-sahara-hotel.th66.com/

Unique Quality: As I said - facilities were the location. Near the Royal Benja and 5 minutes walk (if at all) from a BTS Sky train station. VERY well connected and cheap. Good for budget travellers. Price per room with breakfast was USD25 for 2 persons.

The shower room was really small - BUT clean. We were on a weird mezzanine floor with no balcony and tiny windows - but really we didnt have much to complain about. Further, we saved money by staying here and sight seeing and splurged a little my moving to a nicer hotel our last 2 nights. That was a smart move cos we got all the pool/TV/Room service we needed from there. Try that!

Directions: Nana Area at Ploenchit station.

This hotel is located at the center of Nana, Sukhumvit area. The Nana Skytrain station is just about 100 meters / 10 minutes away... According to the local tourist agent, this hotel is only about a few years back. So most of the things you'll get in the hotel rooms is also quite new... big bed, 25" Panasonic flat screen TV, 2-seat sofa, and clean bathroom... As the name sound, SAHARA hotel, i think they serve mostly guests from middle east. You can see some of the words on the wall are in Arabic, Arabic menu in the lift, etc... or maybe during the time i visit was the Arab season, so most of the hotel guests were black(female) and white(male) figure...

we paid THB1050 for a double bed, and i personally think it really worth our money... and you will get almost what you see from the pictures of most of the online hotel booking system (as at July'06). I said almost is because the fish tank in the photo and the pretty female receptionist are no longer in the lobby... :) oh... they have a nice breakfast which i enjoy very much....

Visited: July'06

Unique Quality: em... i think it is clean, new, nice TV, nice sofa....

Directions: Take BTS to Nana station. Look for Soi 5, or it is the same Soi as Amari Boulevard.
