TravelPod Member ReviewsFocal Local Bed and Breakfast Bangkok
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights when we arrived in Bangkok. We arrived a lot later then we were supposed to due to plane trouble but the free car was there waiting for us. The only thing we weren't expecting was that the hotel was an hour away from the hotel. Which normally wouldn't be a problem but we were so tried and overwhelmed at that point that it wasn't much fun. When we got there though we were greeted by Karan. He stayed late and left reception open for us so he could give us some maps of where the good places to eat are and brought us a cool drink to sip while he showed us to our room. The rooms are small but we liked it. We stayed in the Simply Gorgeous room and did find that it was quieter then the other rooms that faced the road. We were served delicious breakfasts each morning and had no idea that they came in different courses. They gave us a main course and then a sort of dessert course after that usually with fruit and fresh tea or coffee. Karan definitely made our stay. He was always smiling and suggesting places for us to go. He also explained how to get around some scams that certain people try to trick you with around the royal palace. The only bad thing I will say was that it didn't seem to be in the greatest area. Although it was easy to get to the ferry boat that goes down the river and the skytrain that took us to the railway station. All in all the hotel was very cute and clean.

... The other malls next to it like Siam Paragon and Central is on the high end of shopping. The biggest disappointment for us was the night market. One of the reasons we chose the area we stayed at was the distance to the night market. Upon arrival we found out that it had closed a few years back. Sucks. Another popular night market we checked out was patpong night market near Silom Complex. We arrived there at about 6pm and they are ...
... the round the chappy behind bar had called in the heavies and I was surrounded by 4 burly blokes all with little or no English to communicate the problem I had. I decided that the time was late anyway and I rounded up the lads, with jake holding what seemed to be a goalpost of a girl and we got off! All in all a top night with maybe a couple of problems with taxis on the way home ! But maybe not suitable for a blog to discuss! I bloody love ...
... two and stood there smiling as he worked his tools and demonstrated his culinary skills at 11 pm on the side of the alley. Each serving was deposited on a piece of wax paper, and then wrapped as a package in newsprint and closed with an elastic...3.00 CDN. This was followed by a visit to the stand of the roti maker ...who cut aup a banana and mixed in an egg, warmed his grill and oiled. It, and on it placed a circular piece of dough, ...
At exactly 6:00pm, the CEO made his entrance wearing jeans and a navy blue T-shirt bearing the company’s logo in color white. Couldn’t miss him in other words! Sporting a tan, he had thick black hair and a dark complexion which made his teeth appeared whiter when he spoke or laughed!
Since there weren’t enough chairs in the hotel’s lobby, we followed ...
... the narrow and winding passages of one of the local markets, selling much the same merchandise (****) as you can get in the UK but with the odd stall shifting strange food stuffs, sweets and fish, just to remind you of where you are. Also, at the risk of sounding incredibly un-PC, the people here are really small. I'm not that tall but could see a clear few inches over pretty much every persons head. On the fish stalls, the produce was unrecognisable ...
