    Good value


    The Royal Benja hotel is very well situated, only 5 minutes walk to Nana BTS station. The surrounding streets offer the best of the diversity that city in general relishes in: Immediately the west side of the hotel is the Bangkok's "Arab" quater, filled with many great Egyptian restaurants, as well as numerous beauty salons and "massage" parlors, in case that is what you are looking for. A little further west, on Sukhumvit road is the notorious Nana Plaza.

    To the east of the hotel, within walking distance, are the uber-chic hangouts such as the Bed-Supper Club and the Q-Bar, as well as other high-so places to see and be seen in.

    The hotel's interior is superbly clean and fairly luxuriuos - to an extent unimaginable for the same price in other large cities.

    The breakfast buffet is large, offering Thai, Chinese and western morning favorites - and is included with the room.

    The pool and "work-out" facilities exist, but are nothing to write about.

    I was able to get free wifi in my room on the29th floor.

    Unique Quality: A particular plus of staying here was the view it offered of the busy Sukhumvit district of Bangkok. The price of roughyl $50 per night was worth just for that.

    Directions: If you are standing at an intersection of Sukhumvit Road and Soi 5, and looking north - that is away from the skytrain - you will see the hotel form a deadend at the end of Soi 5. It's a is very large hotel, with a bright red neon sign on it's roof.

    Great hotel at cheap price


    This large hotel offer 400 rooms. The bulding is thin and every room look on Sukhumvit road. Really amazing panoramic corridor, you can see Phetburi road, the room offer incredible space for the price (about 30 USD) and the bathroom is with separate shower and room. Nice terrace with pool. I have a good breakfast on the coffe shop. This hotel is really popular and offer one of the best price in town for this quality. The location is on the end of soi 5 Sukhumvit, 10-15 minutes walk to BTS station.

    Unique Quality: Good quality, cheap price

    Directions: In the end of soi 5

    An OK highrise hotel on Sukhumvit


    The Bel-Aire Princess was fully booked on one of my trips, so I checked some of the nearby hotels, and got a good price on the Royal Benja, just down the same soi (side-street). It's a high-rise place, so you get a great view from the rooms on the upper levels.

    However, to some extent you get what you pay for; the hotel was showing a few signs of age, and the bathroom in my room had a few broken fittings. The staff were friendly though, and the room was comfortable enough, and had cable TV. The Soi 5 location is great as well, with lots of local shops and just a short walk to Nana Skytrain station.

    Overall, it's not a bad place if you want an OK hotel towards the cheaper end of the price range; but make sure you don't pay the hotels "official" rate of 85 dollars + tax for a room - it's certainly not worth that. I got a booking through for 105 US dollars for 3 nights stay...

    Directions: At the end of Soi 5 off Sukhumvit; Nana is the closest Skytrain station.

Memories of Bangkok

by Pneuma

Hmm. What can I say about Bangkok, Ive been there 4times already but I just can't get enough. Something about the city, your there but once you leave you yearn to go back.

I would recommend 3 hotels which Ive stayed in the past 3 trips of mine.
Ambassador hotel on Sukhmvit Soi 11, Grand President just next to Ambassador has service apartment styled rooms. Opt for the tower 1 n tower 2 rooms, tower 3 is sad. Even Royal Benja on Sukhmvit Soi 5 is good. If your a shoping maniac like moi, I would suggest you to stay in the sukhmvit area as against the silom area.Bangkok has many happening night clubs as well. But these days they have a time restriction due to new government rules everything shuts by 2am. One night me and my friends set out to find a nightclub really late. We went to the most happening places, like ministry of sound,hollywood, NASA but everything was shut by the time we reached. So if you wanna pardy guys start real early.

I also visited all the temple, the temple of the reclining buddha and the golden buddha. Don't even think of travelling there in May in April itself the tempratures were 40 degrees etc. There is loads to see, I don't know if i can recommend the dinner cruise since I bunked that and went shopping but others said it was OK..Thats all the sight seeing that was included in my tour. Although, we were also taken to pattaya....Now thats for the Pattaya travel page..SO if you wanna know what all is happening in Pattaya read on.

For shopping I would recommend MBK, everything under one roof. Also if your looking for branded stuff just go to Central Deparment Store at Chitlom. Its really good. I picked up some great shades from there. I also recommend the Emporium. For budget shopping I would recommend Tesco Lotus which is at the ON nut station last station at the sukhmvit line of the BTS line. ie. The skytrain, dont even bother travelling in any other mode, I think this mode is the most sensible one to take and for all of you guys who are goin after 3 months , i hear bangkok has got its own brand new metro, so where BTS wont reach you can opt for the Metro.

I also went to chatuchak market but sadly didnt find anythng which I would like. I bought a few pairs of socks, a skull cap etc. BUt i found it was mostly for travellers who liked to dress grunge n in combat gear since am more of the MNG and Morgan kinda gal, I felt lost at Chatuchak market, Id recommend it for a trourist spot actually something new you could see where open markets are concerened. But believe no matter how much you shop you will always come back and feel huh! this is all that i got..................?????????????

Have anyone stayed in this hotel recently. Is it near to the BTS? How is it compared to Asia Hotel.

Hi -

I stayed there a couple of years ago - it was fine, a bit worn around the edges, but if you can get a good price on a room then it can be good value. The location is excellent - it's at the end of Sukhumvit Soi 5; it's a short walk down the soi (soi = side-street) to Nana BTS Skytrain station. Soi 5 is not a through-road so there isn't too much traffic.

Hope this helps,
