More about Diamond City Hotel

Bangkok's budget hotel

by Hartebeat about Diamond City Hotel

The hotel is old and it's not surprising to spot a couple cockroaches lying around. There's hardly any nice window views. The hand towels are old too.

It it located in a dark alley behind Asia Hotel, Ratchathewi BTS Skytrain Station.
If you are taking Tuk Tuk or metered taxi, just tell the driver your hotel is behind Asia Hotel. They will have an idea where the actual hotel is. The overall service of the hotel crew is good. The people are friendly. The hotel managers can speak some simple english to assist you should you need any direction help.

There's breakfast every morning starting from 6am - 10am. There's also 2 wi-fi connected computers at the lobby.

So if you are on a budget, this hotel is worth it at abt US$32/night. Advisable for travels in pairs/group as the alley is dark at night.

Diamond City Hotel

by cinq

Hi

Can anyone tell me anything about this hotel? My agent said it's new and near the BTS and MBK. I looked at the map and am not too sure of the scale.

Can get this hotel in a package with airfare, the room will work out to about 2050BHT a night (2 people sharing) by my reckoning. But includes transfer to and fro.

Does this sound like an ok deal? We're looking for well located hotel, clean bathrooms. Decent service but not necessary for luxury.

What do you all think?

recommend hangout pub with cheap drinks

by cinq

Hi

I'm travelling with friends, gonna meet up with some other friends at a pub on Friday or Saturday for drinks and hangout, maybe people watch. Music but not so loud that you can't talk some to catchup. We're staying at Diamond City Hotel near MBK, any suggestions? Thanks.

RE: recommend hangout pub with cheap drinks

by expatbangkok

Cheap Charlies Sukhumvit soi 11. No music but cheap.
Admakers on Lang Suan, good music.
Saxaphone near Victory monument.
No idea of what you consider cheap.
All places are close to Skytrain, as is MBK.

Need Advice on Accommodations in Bangkok

by jj2006

We'd be traveling to Bangkok during the third week of December, and flight schedules are in place. However, as a group traveling in a party of 6 paxs; we cannot decide on the accommodations! We're thinking of making a reservations at the Omni Tower Serviced Apartment but we're not sure whether the location would be convenient for taking the BTS as well as traveling to the new airport. Then, there again -- there are some of us who simply want to stay close to all the shopping malls so that time is not wasted in traveling - and we thought that it'd be better to stay near the Chitlom BTS station, so we are back to thinking again - this time > whether we should stay in separate rooms at Arnoma Hotel or stay together in a group at the Somerset Suwan Park. Err.. we'd appreciate if somebody can *help* to enable us to narrow down the choices and come to a decision! Thanks.

Omni Tower is on soi 4 yes? So that's 15 mnutes walk from the Nana skytrain, which will take you close to the shopping. You can also access the expressway which can take you to the airport.

Let me add an additional choise :-) I really like Banglampoo. For example New Siam 2 guesthouse. Not expensive and convieniently located near the boat express (great way of traveling!) and the Grand palace. It's the backpackers area but there are some very good and quiet choises if you don't go to Kao San road but look around in the neighborhood.

Enjoy BKK ! Best regards, Roelof

Before you're renting the apartment in Bangkok carefully read an agreement before you sign up the contract. Many of the apartments in Bangkok require at least 3-4 months rental agreement. Another apartment I would like to recommend Boss Tower in Soi Thonglor near Thonglor (BTS). It has monthly basic. You should check into it at www.bosstower.com
Traveling by taxi is cheap in BKK.
Good luck!!!

What kind of budget is your travelling group on? I know a great hotel about a ten minute walk for the Rachatawi BTS station and very close to all the major downtown shopping centers. (Siam Paragon, MBK, etc.) Its clean, cheap and very helpful with transportation around the city and to and from the new airport. Its called the Diamond City Hotel.

I think it would be good to look into. Good luck planning yor trip!

Try the Emporium - right in a major shopping mall - with GREAT food court - multiplex cinema - and the Phrom Phrong Sky Train station connects directly into the mall - you don't even need to go outside. Great location for getting around.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Bangkok sunrise

by kylian74

This is me having breakfast from the hotel lounge with a beautiful sunrise view of Bangkok. Why so early? that day we are scheduled for a day trip with the group. The shuttle will pick us up at the hotel lobby at 7am, quite early though but okey, breakfast is available from 5 am.;-))

Mango With Sticky Rice!

by machomikemd

Mango with sticky rice is a sweet south east asian invention. It is composed of Ripe yellow Mango with glutinous sticky rice and sometimes flavored with brown sugar or coconut milk. I don't really know which country started it but it is the BEST DESSERT! Here in Thailand it's called "Khao Niaw Ma Muang" and it the Philippines, it is called "Suman sa Lihiya at Mangga". Look at the Pictures here for the similarities of Both!

Shops again.... L becomes N

by Bangkokjoe

Again, hats off to Thai's for giving the English language a go, when we natives tend to treat any foreign language with the "wouldn't touch it with a barge pole" treatment. ...However, staying with the subject of letters on the end of words and how this can make shopping a cultural awareness exercise.

If an English word ends with an "al", e.g. animal, some Thais prefer to pronounce it animan. Knock the l out of it and whack an n in.

So Central Department Store to a taxi driver will quite often simply be referred to as Centran. The abonimal snowman will become aboniman, though it is unlikely you will need this particular example in the 32 degree heat.

In Bangkok's many cafes and Starbucks (pronounced "Starbuck") you may be offered a Norman Coffee. Wow! Must be like an Irish coffee or something. Nup. It's very un-wow. A luke warm mug of crap Nescafe Instant is what you will get.

So..."Pee Somchai, can you nip to Centran and buy me a jar of Norman Nescafe for my hangover plea. Krab"

Tennis: The Thailand Open

by xuessium

Part of the International Series, the Thailand Open is held during late September/early October every year and since its inception into the ATP Tour schedule, it has managed to draw some big names to the event: Roger Federer, the current World No.1 (Sep 2005) defended his title successfully. Previous No.1s Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt, Juan Carlos Ferrero & Carlos Moya had also made appearances alongside Tommy Haas, Taylor Dent (the inaugural champion in 2003) and local hero Paradorn Srichaphan.

Good chance to see some top notch tennis in action.

The event is held at the Impact Arena, an indoor stadium rather close to the current Don Muang Airport.

Note: This year, the Thailand Open also had a women's tournament, a brand new event on the WTA Tour, just 2 weeks after the men's tournament.
