... the way home we stopped at the Hard Rock Cafe for me to collect another pin badge and have a few drinks. We caught the sky train home which was much easier than we had thought it might be and took us within a few hundred years of our hotel. It was now gone 6 o'clock and once freshened up we went to the a small restaurant across the road from the hotel. We both ate Thai food and treated ourselves to a full body massage ...
... Once we were there, we walked down the road and found a pond with huge rocks in it. It was really fun jumping from rock to rock, the only problem was that we got to the restaurant too quickly and I didn't have enough time to play in the pond. The restaurant was very nice but i was a bit worried when dad said i'd have a coconut drink ( the last coconut juice I had was from a coconut that was bad) and chicken wrapped in leaves. It turns out ...
Hey guys! Tom here with the first entry of what's turning out to be an amazing trip. It took us over 30 hours of traveling to finally get to our hostel but writing this less than 24 hours of being here, the travel time was well worth it! If any of you people are planning to head out to South East Asia then let me tell you some of the things you might want to know. The good: 1: The hostels. They are ...
... immigration and then the morons left his bag in Amsterdam, so at about 10am we were finally on the train into the city centre with two people he met on his flight (Sol and Nico). We caught a cab from the train station to Khao San Road which, when I first arrived in October, took about 20 minutes. This time over TWO HOURS. We had a nutty taxi driver who spoke to himself, played Thai heavy metal at full volume and cleaned everything I touched with ...
The getting there. After 3 excellent days in Toronto visiting friends and family, we were ready to begin. Our friends Shelley and Sparkey with beauty dog Halle are the kindest and we thank them for their hospitality. The family get together with Karen and Denis et al was just as it should be - fabulous food and great stories! The getting there part is a big part of the trip. If it goes well, it puts you in a good frame of mind to start your adventures. If not....then all hell can ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Century Park Hotel Bangkok
Loved the hotel
Myself and my wife stayed here in October. Beautiful and spacious rooms and bathrooms. Decoration immaculate throughout. Staff friendly and helpful. Food good.
A nice hotel
Stayed in this hotel last Christmas. Excellent buffet breakfast, clean and spacious hotel room and bathroom, friendly staff and affordable.
We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights, we only needed a room for a base while we expolored Bangkok. The hotel had all the facilities (pool, gym etc) if we wanted them but we didn't have time. The hotel is idealy situated in the Sukumvit area which is young and trendy with lots going on at night with good bars and restaurants. It depends what you want to see, it isn't near to the river or palaces but we weren't that bothered as it is so cheap to get around by taxi or tuk tuk.
The rooms were really nice and clean and had a large bathroom with speparate shower and bath.
The staff were really friendly and helpful but then all people in Thailand are.
Just few words about Century Park Hotel. THe major advantage of the one is location near BTS as the traffic in Bangkok is terrific. Nice and friendly service, clean and well conditioned and amicable atmosphere at reasonable price. The major dissapointing is the very small swiming pool. On the high floor the urban landscape appears, but in cool air-conditioned environment it look queer. If You do not pretend to 5 star service for chipe, the Century Park Hotel is a matter of choice.
Great Bangkok base away from the tourists
If you're looking for a hotel that is NOT in the centre of the more touristy areas of Bangkok, but where you can relax at the end of a hard days work, then this is the hotel for you. The Century Park is a very nicely appointed 4-star hotel in the Victory Monument area of the city. There are a few things you need to know about the area, and one is that if you want to walk to the Skytrain station, it WILL take 10-15 minutes despite seeing it from your hotel window, as Bangkok 'people traffic' is quite congested in this area. If you hate walking, be prepared to get cabs everywhere (very cheap in Bangkok).
I stayed here for 4 nights after 5 weeks doing research in villages in Laos, Vietnam and Thailand, and it was the first place I stayed at after sleeping on a tiled floor with a rural Thai family for several nights. As such, my review may be slightly biased as it was tremendously satisfying to have a comfortable hotel room. I had a junior suite which was exceptional - one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in.
The hotel pool was small by any standard, and lets the hotel down considerably. The Thai food on offer from the room service menu is first class, as is the service all round in the hotel. Breakfast was quite good, although nothing spectacular. Overall, it's a very nice place to stay as long as you realise that you are not in practical walking distance to any of city's major attractions.
Good clean efficient hotel
I stayed here last year for 2 nights, very quick check in then straight up to my room. Once inside found it very clean spacious with a huge full length window with great views. Regarding the location of the hotel i can't say i found this a problem at all as the most your likely to pay for a taxi is about £2 to go anywhere in the city , so the easiest option is to get reception to order you one if your wanting to go out. Bangkok is such a big city nearly anywhere you stay your going to have to get a taxi. Overall i would recommend this hotel as it has great room rates and is everything you would need . hotel also has a great pool however fitness centre is a bit on the small side so if thats something your bothered about then take it into consideration. Also regarding the Buffet Breakfast , this was average, some things good some things not.
Excellent value for money
We stayed at the Century Park January 2005 and found it excellent value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were comfortable , clean and well furnished.
The swimming pool was an oasis in a busy city. The meals in both restaurants and those supplied by the pool were delicious and again good value for money.
The Sky Train was a good walk but the taxis are so cheap that you could always get a taxi to the station.
We have already booked to stay at the Century Park again in October, and must say that we have stayed in several hotels in Bangkok over the years and this hotel is the best value.
Okay hotel - BAD location.
This hotel is a good value but not a great location. The staff is very helpful and the bellmen are great. The morning buffet is so-so and the food is the same every day. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are very nice.
Bangkok has terrible traffic and it would be nice to be at a hotel closer to a Skytrain or Subway stop. Victory Monument skytrain is a ten minute walk which isn't far but with pedestrian traffic, things can get a little hairy.
Wonderful hotel in Bangkok
Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Century Park Hotel in Bangkok. This beautiful hotel is an oasis of tranquility in chaotic Bangkok. Our room was clean, spacious, and well air-conditioned. The front desk staff was polite and helpful and the dining room staff was great. The morning breakfast buffet was delicious. We recommend taking the nearby skytrain (Victory Monument station) if you decide to explore Bangkok because traffic was horrendous near the hotel and catching a cab in Bangkok often means waiting at long traffic lights.
