... supposed to take). Vientiane was pretty nice, it was quieter than we thought the capitol would be and had lots of wats and some beautiful architecture. We visited one wat that had around 2000 Buddha statues!! We also found two great Indian restaurants there and binged on Indian food for four consecutive meals. Today, being my first day in Bangkok ever, and Dad's in 30 years, we are going to go explore this crazy city. More to come ...
... We asked him if he would be able to get back into his room alright in which he replied that he actually had the key, and that his friend would not be taking the girl back to their room. An hour passes and his friend returns with the Austrian girl pleading with him to give him the key and eventually he gives in. The rest of the night is a blur of bars and from what I can recall a Burger King. The next day as you can imagine was a long recovery process. I ...

... was half closed, talked like a proper Alabama hick and raved about moonshine he used to make. Basically he was a hick personified. We sat and spoke for about half an hour before Ben said that he wanted to go to this girlie bar John had been raving about. I was nervous, He didn't seem like the classiest of character and he was going to disappoint. We all jumped in a Taxi to the road at the end of Soi Cowboy - basically where all the smaller, more seedier and less commercial places are. ...

very welcoming. Very happy with service. Luckily was close to the ShangriLah which made it easy for taxi and tuk tuk drivers to find.

Historical Traveler Reviews Bossotel Bangkok
Great Location, Great Price
Although I wouldn't say that the front desk staff was overly friendly, this was a great hotel. We stopped in Bangkok at the beginning and end of our trip and stayed at the Bossotel both times. We could walk to the river and catch a ferry to the Grand Palace or walk to the skytrain and take it downtown or to the weekend market. Also a great neighborhood for getting a tailored suit made.
It's hard to tell people that you're on budget in Bangkok ... but that's exactly what happened on my most recent trip. Since I was going to be for quite a few days, I didn't want to spend too much money on accomodation, especially since I've got a good mind to do loads of shopping! Haha!
Stayed here in early December, just as they were putting up the Christmas tree!! After a longhaul flight from London, we were welcomed with a glass of juice and shown to a very clean and spacious room. The staff were very helpful and I would thouroughly recommend this hotel. Tried the open air swimming pool on the forth floor, and though a little narrow it was fine after a days sightseeing in the city! Located 5 minutes walk from the skytrain and river boats, with taxis and tuk-tuks easy to find outside the hotel. Being next door to the Shangri-la made for pleasant riverside drinks, without the expensive room-rate.
Great value hotel
Great value hotel in good location, 5 minutes walk from Skytrain and river boat within short walk too.
Great breakfast , very large bedroom, spotlessly clean bathroom with good power shower and toiletry selection. Only spotted pool on last day, but looked good with some rooms opening onto it (room 418 was one I think).
Would definitely stay in this hotel again.
The lobby was stylish. The room was nice. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and spoke English very well. The breakfast (which was not included in our room rate) was very good, as was dinner at the hotel restaurant. Individual safe deposit boxes are available at the front desk at no charge. They have a room with three PCs for Internet access, which were fast and worked very well (although the price was slightly higher than what you'd pay at an Internet cafe). The hotel stored a suitcase for us for a week in between two stays at no charge. The laundry service worked well and was reasonably priced.

Spotlessly clean - luxury after staying in some other places (Manohra Hotel) -- really friendly helpfull staff -- views of temple --- Great hotel - you wont be dis appointed.
We stayed here in November 2005: we initially stayed for 3 nights, spent 2 nights in Kanchanaburi, then returned for another 2 nights. Whilst we were away, the hotel were more than happy to store our baggage securely for us.
The Bossotel Inn in Bangkok is a great little boutique hotel. It is clean and has a variety of room styles, al with bathrooms and refrigerators. The staff is helpful and they will store baggage for you free of charge. There is a spa in the building that offers massages and other beauty treatments from head to toe. But the main reason I had to write this review is that the breakfast that came with our rooms was outrageous. There was all kinds of the regular cereal, toast, fruit and coffee , all of high quality, but there was also a full range of Thai and Chinese dishes every morning, as well as an omlette station! This breakfast held us until at least 2 pm. Our group started and ended our SE Asia trip at this hotel and yearned for their breakfasts the whole time we were away from Bangkok.
The Bossotel isn't on the usual touristy route - as such there aren't many bars or street stalls around. It's about 100 yards from the Shangri La and has excellent transport links - there is a port for the River taxi at the end of the street (100 yards) and the Sky Train is a 5 minute walk away.
My friends and I stayed there for five nights and it was a graet little hotel. Nothing fancy or to shout about but it is practical, clean and good location (5 mins walk to Saphan taksin sky train). Had a fridge in the room and they put in cold water everyday. Safe deposit downstairs in the lobby. Business centre has internet and massage services next door.
