Author's Lounge Mandarin Oriental Hotel: Author's Lounge Mandarin Oriental Hotel
On our girls only trip to Bangkok we went to the beautiful 5 star Mandarin Oriental Hotel for Afternoon Tea in the Author's Lounge. This had been on our list to do for a couple of years but we kept running out of time. So this recent trip it was one of the first things we had planned.
From the moment you step into the hotel you are made to feel very welcome.
We ordered the Traditional Afternoon Tea Set and the Mandarin Oriental Thai Tea Set with a glass of Louis Roederer Brut Premier.
The price for each Afternoon Tea set was 1350baht or 1990baht with a glass of champagne, so our total with taxes was 2440baht each.
The Afternoon Tea was delicious and there was plenty we could not eat it all, you also have a choice of tea, we had the Marco Polo Tea and Silver Needles Tea.
Such a beautiful place and the perfect way to spend a couple of hours with a great afternoon tea and your own personal waitress.

Bella Bella House: Decent location and clean
Bella Bella House is located on Rambuttri, the more laid back road round the back of the wat near Khao San Road. For 530baht we got a double aircon ensuite room. They have other single, shared bathroom and fan options. It was clean and quiet and good for a budget.

Best Western Klassique Sukhumvit: Good location on a budget
Service is really good. The staff here was all very friendly; always assisting us in whatever we needed.
Facilities have all the basic requirements.
It is situated along Suhumvit road; not in the center but main places are all accessible by BTS. For a group of 3 or more, taxi may be a cheaper option; just ensured metered taxis.

Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit: Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit
A typical Family Novotel Hotel. Very Modern in design and with a good central position on Sukumvik with the Ploenchit MTR station right outside to transport to most of the popular areas of Bangkok
To have full appreciation of this hotel you need to book a floor at least three stories from the top as it is in a very high density area and the view from lower floors can be poor.

ALoft Hotel: The Most Unique Hotel on Soi 11
It is described as the hippest hotel in Bangkok. I guess, I would agree.
When you arrive the first thing you notice, besides the ultramodern appearance, is how friendly and helpful everyone is. At the front desk you can see the colorful bean bag seats in the lobby bar. This hotel is a treat for your eyes. The rooms are outstanding. internet is excellent. The breakfast is a buffet served in the ultra-trendy dining room. It is not worth the cost, however, there are many good, low priced breakfasts on Soi 11.
The end of Soi 11 is the location of the trendy nightclubs. One is located in the Aloft hotel and the other, the Bed Supper Club is across the street.

JAZZ HOTEL, BANGKOK: Better Accomodation
We made a great mistake by traveling in a group tour with big tour operator of India, SOTC. They are supposed to be giving value for money. As I had no other option but to travel with them to utilize/ use, my daughter's holiday days between 19/10/2012 to 25/10/2012, I booked with them. We were promised / given booking sheet of Baioke Sky Tower Hotel in Sukhumvit area. But after we left from the Suvarnabhumi airport, we were taken to this hotel almost outskirt of Bangkok action area. Baioke Tower is just in the heart of the city. Despite promise by our tour operator that the rooms will be made available by 8.00 am, we were told that check in time is 2.00 PM and rooms will not be available before 12.00 or later! Anyway, we were in the mood to go to Ayutthaya, so we were not very keen on taking full bath or change, as I wanted to utilise the day.
Though in the outskirts of Bangkok city, the hotel turned out to be a good 3 star hotel, ( we were promised 4 star!) The room was good with a living area, like a small apartment with sofa, refrigerator, tea coffee maker ( but without supplies of tea/milk) and a good clean toilet! No wonder this is a favoured place for large group tour operators, they survive on their patronage.
If this hotel was inside the city, we would have saved lots of time in traveling and looking for taxis in the night, who always over charge you and refuse to go to this place. The time saved could have been utilised for shopping or visiting some tourist attraction! But, perhaps the tour operator must be saving lots of money by utilising this hotel for their group tour!
The hotel was good for two night's stay, the bed was comfortable, complimentary half liter bottle was given ( we had to buy our water from outside), cleanliness was very good and above all their breakfast was good.

Siam Star Hotel: Basic, clean and decent
I am not very picky about accommodation when it comes to budget holiday trips, and neither did my friends. We pondered for weeks on where to stay this time around. In the end we decided to go with Siam Star Hotel. We did our booking via Booking.com.What Siam Star offered is very basic and reasonable for the price we forked out (THB1200 per night for a triple room). Credit card was needed as a guarantee but no charges was imposed for booking.
The hotel only accept cash and we didn't know this beforehand. So better be prepared with extra cash in hand if you plan to stay here.
Our room is located on the 3rd floor. It was clean, albeit the size and more importantly, there were no funny smells or cockroaches were not seen lurking around the room.
There were 3 plug points available in our room, just nice for the three of us. There was a standard single door refrigerator in the room too but we didn't switch it on. Clean towels and drinking water were provided on a daily basis. Water heater was functional and water pressure was good.
Front desk staffs were friendly and spoke good English but the staffs at the cafe were a bit ambivalent. There were several breakfast set meal to choose from at the cafe and it cost THB69 per set, with drinks (coffee, tea or Milo) included.
Baiyoke Sky is located just behind Siam Star and one can just walk to the hotel via it's back entrance which is not far from the hotel. Platinum Mall is about 15-20 minutes walk away from the hotel. There is also another mall that is nearer (within the same building as the Indra Regent Hotel).
Not many street food vendors were available here compared to Sukhumvit - we stayed there during our last trip. There were a few food stalls and a kiosk selling freshly made coffee located just beside Rajchaprarop City Link station.
Honestly speaking, I am not really keen on making it a point to come back and stay here, even though there was nothing really really bad or wrong about this hotel. I would not stay away from or make bad publicity about Siam Star either, simply because there are plenty of other places with better locality and offer to choose from in Pratunam area.
If you ask me to describe Siam Star Hotel in 3 words, it would be: basic, clean and decent.
*The same review by the same author under the user ID gardenchime is also available at Tripadvisor.com*
Close to Rajchaparop Airport Link Station (about 200m away)
Baiyoke Sky is just next door.
Basic, clean and decent.

Suvarnabhumi Suite: Budget stay near Bangkok Airport
We had only one night stay as we had a flight in the next early morning. Around 10 min on the Van from Airport to the hotel. The room is too small, the dark decor just made us feel so uncomfortable, didn't have a good sleep. Breakfast is simple. The transfer service is quite good. It's more to me like a small apartment. I would rather stay somewhere else next time.

Anantara Hotel: A taste of luxury.
Back in the old days we used to do package trips from Hong Kong to other parts of Asia. These invariably put you up in posh hotels. Due to that we stayed here twice when it was the Marriot Riverside and we loved it. This time we stayed one night as a special treat. We don't normally fork out for expensive hotels now, we book flights and hotels separately. However, now and again it is worth it.
We got to the hotel from the airport by taking the airport link train to Phraya Thai, switching to the sky train - 2 stops to Siam Station, walk across platform to change line. 5 stops to Saphin Taksin. Go to pier and follow sign for hotel shuttles, wait for hotel's free boat. It runs every half hour up till midnight, leaving Saphin Taksin for the hotel at approx quarter to and quarter past the hour. Leaving the hotel for Saphin Taksin on the hour and half past the hour.
If you plan to explore Bangkok from the hotel, from Saphin Taksin you can board the sky train or take the Chao Phraya River boat to the historical sights.
We paid around £100 for a double room with kingsized bed, balcony, river view, late check out till 3pm next day, 25% off meals and inclusive breakfast buffet.
Our room (room 413) was beautiful. Only minor complaint was the bath was incredibly slippy. Put one foot in and you slide right across the bath before you can even put your other one in. Quite dangerous. I have bruises to proove it. The bathroom came with an assortment of lovely toiletries: ginger soap and cardamon soap and beautiful smelling shampoo, hair conditioner and shower gel. Everything was very clean. The bed was very big and very comfy. There was a TV and DVD player.
The balcony was good you could see the river, but it would be truer to say it faced the pool. Tea and coffee making facilities were available in the room with a huge selection of different teas. Perfect for me as I love herbal teas. There was an in-room safe. Lots of storage space.
The swimming pool at the Anantara is wonderful. It is big and deep. You can even sit at the bar in the pool if you want to. There is also a lovely jacuzzi. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful. In fact the whole hotel is quite stunning. The standard of service is excellent, too. The receptionists, the boat shuttle workers, the bell boys, the towel attendant, the breakfast staff - all friendly and polite.
Of course food and drink are expensive here, compared to real life Bangkok. The hotel is much more like a retreat than even being in Bangkok. We ate at the pool and drank there during happy hour 4 to 6pm. There was an evening buffet with classical Thai dancing.We had a look at the dancing but did not eat at the buffet.
Breakfast buffet in the morning was fantastic. I thought I would never want to eat again by the end of it and finally a hotel that can keep food hot!! Coffee is served at the table. I had to ask for more. I prefer to just take my own as I like coffee. The freshly squeezed orange juice was heavenly. good selection of bread. Thai food and western food available.
For our evening meal on the first night we went to one of the restaurants just outside the hotel on the non-river side. There are many restaurants here where you can eat much cheaper than the hotel, though the one we went to charged 17% extra on the bill just like the hotel does. This is a bit cheeky as this is not common practice in local restaurants just in the hotel, but they rely on you not knowing this or not wanting to make a scene about this. This arcade also had some shops and a Boots chemist. Nowhere to buy beer though. We took the free shuttle to Taksin Saphin and went to 7 eleven to stock up on that.
I would certainly stay here again, but use it as a spa retreat rather than a base to explore Bangkok. While you can easily explore Bangkok from it, the hotel is so lovely, you won't want to leave it.
