    Hotel at Sukhumvit Soi 5


    I found this hotel through this website - 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.

    In the heart of Soi 5


    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.

    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.

    new, clean, middle-east style hotel


    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.

A 5-Day Visit to Bangkok

by boocik04

I planned for this trip since August but due to busy working schedule, I finally managed to go to Bangkok only in December. Took the Malaysian budget airline from LCCT, Sepang (which cost me only RM600 return + hotel - all done through the wonders of the internet!!) but my flight was delayed for over an hour!

I arrived in Bangkok on Thursday, 7 December 06 at 3.00pm local time. Had to wait for the shuttle bus for another 40 minutes and due to the traffic, I reached the hotel at nearly 6.00pm. What an experience to go through the notorious Bangkok traffic jam!

Stayed at the Bangkok Sahara Hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 5, famed for being the Middle-East street in Bangkok! While walking the street at night, you might mistaken it for a place in Egypt (probably!).

Although Bangkok is well-known for shopping, I did little shopping except for the-very-much-needed clothings (as I brought ONE pair only!) and some fridge magnets (souvenirs). I did however walked a lot and had a wonderful time sightseeing and people-watching.

I left Bangkok on Monday, 11 December 06. I had a morning flight at 9.30am and because I do not want to be caught during the rush-hour jam, I set out at 6.00am and reached Suvarnabhumi aiport in just 30 minutes by a metered-taxi. Ironically, the flight to LCCT, Sepang was delayed for nearly two hours (again with the delay!!) and the flight to Sepang took another two hours. Finally, I reached home at 4.30pm.... HOME SWEET HOME!

place to stay in bankok

by sanfranciscoca

Hi all,
I'll be in Bangkok for a few days, first time. I'm looking to book a hotel price range $50-90 per night. What areas do you recommend; easy walk to great shopping and easy transportation to major attractions would be a plus. Any specific hotel names would also be appreciated. Thanks!

I like the Sukhumvit area. Check out the Landmark Hotel or the Amari Boulevard. I always stay at the JW Marriott, but that maybe out of your price range.

Great shopping and easy transportation? Pathumwan Princess hotel!!! It's directly connected to MBK shopping center (also Siam Discovery, Siam Center and Siam Paragon are just minutes away)... and sky train "National Stadion"... you can easily get to anywhere from there.

Siam City Hotel - right across from the skytrain rail and within walking distance to all the major areas, including day market and 2 blocks from Siam Square. We loved this hotel and it is quite affordable.
Here is a direct link but, you will be able to get better rates on

A serviced apartment/hotel has just recently opened just a few minutes walk from the skytrain and subway stations at the Asoke/Sukhumvit intersection, called Citadines ( This is a prime location for getting about town. Don't know when you'll arrive, but until the end of February they have a promotion, starting at B1,625 ($45). After that, they have internet and Citibank promotions, with rooms $55 and up.

When I was in Bangkok, I stayed at the Bangkok Sahara Hotel for 4 nights. It is close to the Nana train station (only 2 minutes walk!), 7 Eleven, Foodland, internet cafes & Gulliver's pub. It only cost me THB1100 per room a night and comes with a set breakfast. It's more like an inn but the room is very, very clean (like a hotel but smaller) & the toilet is extremely clean. Do visit my travel page to get further info....

Hi Try the Asia Hotel, tourist class, restaurants and pools, direct entry from hotel to Skytrain which will quickly get you to many parts of Bangkok. Hotel will be much cheaper tan your $100. MBK and other shopping 10 minute walk , or 2 stations on Skytrain.Check photos of hotel on my Bangkok pages, has web link to hotel.
Good Luck, Mike
