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.

Annie: I am pleased to say that we have now arrived at our Koh Samui resort in Thailand. This really is a beautiful island with a very laid back atmosphere. As you touch down at the airport you see palm trees everywhere and what appears to be a small bamboo hut which in fact serves as the airport building. You wander out of the plane to the scent of tropical flowers and the warming sensation of the sun. We are now sitting in our beautiful pool villa, sipping champagne ...
... passing. But it was nice just hanging out with a couple of other people and chatting about our experiences together. That's sort of what you do. Socialising as a traveller is largely made up of having conversations about where you've been, what you've done and where you're going. Which, if you think about it, could be some pretty deep questions. We grabbed some food just off of Khao San and enjoyed some drinks at a ...
... failed. I mean seriously, I change in the bathroom! But I guess that is how these young people are. I had a further conversation with Meryl, and she seems to be very intelligent. She is pretty much on a open travel plan. She has a ticket flying out of Thailand, but is taking each day as it comes. That is an awesome way to travel, but something I think you can only do when you are a student. Ron, on the other hand, was telling me about his day and he seems to have spend his ...
Relaxed by the pool after breakfast and the Sunday paper. Strolled to the Sofitel to look in the S Gallery. SOS (an innovative street artist-graffiti) had just been taken down. Brightly coloured - Mario, Mickey Mouse and other characters. A new one was just being put out and due to open tomorrow ( listed as being Feb 5-Mar 5). Anamorphoses: See the world through Charles Maze's eyes. Overseen ...
... horrendous and it takes like an hour to get anywhere, but thankfully nab has drivers with very comfortable seats and AC :)
Next delicious Thai lunch similar to yesterday and then took dogs (Lucky, Cocoa and Magnum) all Labradors in increasing darkness to a doggy pool where ...
