... she had an Adam's apple and asked her to leave. He clearly thinks himself a very handsome man. Since when, outside of porn movies, does a woman ever pull up next to a complete stranger and ask to go back to their room? If that happened in any other country and I fell for it I'd expect to be mugged by her big hard gangster mates and if it happened in Thailand I'd feel let off if I only saw Adam's apple, apparently his banana is far more ...
... must have been about 30. Some higher end, big places, some smaller, grottier and grimier places. When we walked in it was like nothing I had ever seen. I'm a guy, I have been to a few strip clubs, but this was something much different. Most are generally the same format, a long center stage a bit like a cat walk with poles in the middle with a three tiered horseshoe viewing area around the side. There isn't just one two or even five girls dancing, there are about 30. All shoulder ...
... stop at an auto teller to draw money to pay the taxi driver. When we got to the port the taxi driver insisted on checking the back seat again and found that the envelope had slipped down between the seats when we put the divider up. Talk about relief. Needless to say the driver got a big hug from Bev, a handshake from me and a seriously big tip. The people in the port must have though that we were crazy. We can only speak highly of the Thai people that we have met.

Historical Traveler Reviews Bangkok Palace Hotel
I recently stayed at Bangkok Palace Hotel during Christmas and it exceeded my expectations. The rooms are large and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is not the best but it's not bad, it's close the Pratunam market (the best shopping place in Bangkok), you can walk or take a short tuk-tuk ride. The breakfast spread was great- lots of choices. One thing to beware of is not to take taxis or tuk-tuks from the front of the hotel, they try to rip you off, walk down the street to the main road by the seven eleven (2 min walk) and get a taxi or tuk-tuk there. There are some great restaurants and cheap massage places near the hotel and the beer gardens is a 5 minutes walk away. I hope you enjoy your trip as much as I did! One more thing, don't use the internet at the hotel, there a places 10 times cheaper around the hotel, just go for a short walk and you'll see plenty.
Smiles all rd and very clean
My family and I stayed here for a few days and the service was exceptional .The lobby bar with live football and drinks, live music and staff who bent over backwards to serve you.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone and its central to all markets.
The Hotel is right in the centre of Bangkok, and so it has loads of traffic going past. I don't understand why people complain about this-it's Bangkok, what do they expect?
Good Stopover Hotel
Only stayed here one night on a stopover from the UK to Phuket. Public areas were very nice, bedroom was a bit tired and in need of a refurb. Breakfast was very good.
On check-out, I left the key at reception and had a porter insist that I go to the cashier to check-out (despite the fact that I had nothing to pay). I waited 10 minutes to be served at the cashier's desk whilst the two cashiers dealt with porters and ignored my presence. After giving up and going to the door to wait for our taxi, one of the porters came up and asked us to go and check-out at the cashiers desk! I declined and got into my taxi! What a rigamarole!
I found this hotel to be just what I needed after a long day. We were at the end of a two week tour of Vietnam and Laos and this was our last stop. I found the staff to be helpful, the rooms were nice and the place was quiet. As mentioned, not a lot to look at from the outside but I wasn't standing outside looking at the place the whole time. Once you got inside, it was a totally different picture. I took advantage of the massage facility and was very happy and relaxed afterwards. The pool area was great as well. The breakfast that was offered had so many choices, it was hard to find fault with. The only negative experience was during one night when I was feeling homesick, I went to the dining room one night and ordered a hamburger and fries that took well over an hour to deliver to my table. But overall, my experience with this hotel was just what I expected.
My husband and I booked a package deal as a side trip from the Philippines. Although we were told by the travel agency that this was a 5 star hotel, (obviously not), we didn't feel ripped off. We got a great price and free buffet breakfast everyday and one compulsory dinner. Not bad at all. The hotel itself needs a face lift on the outside, but it's actually quite nice on the inside. The rooms are not bad, spacious. Pretty basic. What more do you need??? I mean, if you are going to spend your vacation in the room, then maybe you might want more plush accomodations, but we just needed the room to shower and sleep, so our needs were definitely met. The hotel staff was friendly and answered any questions we had.
Booked for a week, but changed my mind when I saw the hotel & checked out the very next day. Location is really bad, close enough to the centre but really dark & dreary after night. Rooms are large but badly in need of refurbishment & very, very basic loos. At this price can find heaps of better places in Sukhumwit Road area. Defintely do not recommend this hotel.
Big Hotel, Great For The Money
Not particularly pretty from the outside, but quite plush once you're through the doors, and much better than its 3-star rating would suggest. Room was nice, minibar prices were ridiculously cheap and overall we found it great, although we did hear reports of a stupidly slow internet connection in the Business Centre, and of another couple being accused of burning the carpet in their room.
Overall, this hotel sucks. It is the worst I have ever stayed in BKK. First with the reservation, i paid for deluxe room, and they gave me a normal room! Requested a King Size bed, and they gave me 2 single beds! Then waited 1 hour to get the deluxe room. Then i got myself an extra room on the 3rd day with my gf (my gf is thai), then requested my gf to pay extra 600B!!! Called call center to check, they said its in the policy where stated "SOME" of the hotels do not accept Thai.
