First night ever traveling and first night in Bangkok (Thailand) and decided to stay at a high budget hotel to ease myself into the experience.
On a whole my one nights stay in the hotel was perfect. I was arriving to the hotel late at night after landing at Bangkok airport at 7pm and all I could think about was getting some well needed rest in my room. I found all the members of staff very helpful and the checkin process was quick and easy and to top it off on arrival they informed me they had upgraded my room from a superior double to a executive suite. However on reading other reviews from people about this hotel this seems to happen a lot??????
The room was very spacious and had everything included complementary you would have liked, Tea/Coffee, kettle, Hair dryer, electronic safe, drinking water etc. This particular room had a good view of the city, despite the poor visibility due to storms but was still worth it. The bathroom was perfect, a huge shower and included a bath which I took advantage of after my long flight from Britain. I did however have a few particular problems with the room, the first was the free WiFi. I was told that the internet login that I received would work in all areas of the hotel, however I had difficulties using the internet in my room and found the only place it was worth while using was in the lobby, which i didn't mind to much as it was next to the hotel bar. The second was the TV, it didn't work, maybe due to the weather i wasn't sure but was a little disappointed Although I'm sure if i had said anything at the front desk the hotel would have found a solution.
I used the hotel restaurant for both evening dinner and breakfast as I had paid for breakfast to be included. I was the last person to eat of the evening so there wasn't much on offer however there was a good Variety for breakfast in the morning.
The hotel itself is very good, clean and presentable all you could ask for, and the lobby was quite big and spacious. which was useful as I had to wait in there for a few hours in the morning for a friend to arrive. I chose the hotel due to the location and it didn't disappoint. Located right next to the Makkasan Sky train station which is a direct route to the airport, it was very useful for me and my friend.

... patient. Another vendor was selling fresh pomegranate juice and it did well enough to quell the pain. Wat Pho is among the more ornate temples we have visited. I'll be honest, it's only been two days but I am having trouble remembering what we saw. Usually, the guidebook helps jog my memory but I am writing this on the plane to Tokyo and I stowed the guidebook in my luggage. Oh well, it was impressive. I know that there was a large arcade lined with hundred of ...
... It was stir veggies and tofu with rice, and it was good. And it was50 baht or $1.50. I had two errands to run this afternoon - i needed to pick up my bus ticket for the ride from Bangkok to Cambodia on January 4, and I want to hit up that vegan bakery I've been salivating over for weeks. Turns out I can do both on the same corner, so I packed everything up and bid farewell to the Siamaze! After picking up my bus ticket, ...
... than one time it has held the title of the best hotel in the world. If the lunch spread was anything to go by I'd say this was not far wrong! Certainly the best lunch I've had. Had great fun demolishing all the sushi, lobster and crab I could fill my plate with, and followed it up with a super array of puds. Nap time on the way to the airport for our quick hop up to Chiang mai. Arrived and immediately we were hit by the silence and the low height of buildings, ...
... I booked in a wax. Whilst, we waited for the appointment we caught the sky train to the end of the line and back, sitting again in the air con. My wax was the most expensive I've ever had (£32) but also the most painless AND with 'chocolate' wax! After that we caught a taxi to Chinatown and walked our way through blocks and blocks of markets selling all sorts of tat. We'd had grand ideas of eating there but ...
... After a wonder around this temple we hit a cute little market famous for its Buddha amulets. Thais collect these pendants for good luck, and some of them are at least 100 years old. Graeme absolutely loves to collect things and was like a bit of a magpie at this market. Both of us really enjoyed walking around here and getting to know a little bit about Buddhist beliefs from the market traders, all to be taken with a pinch of salt I imagine as I'm sure they are just trying to ...
