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.

Today we went to the most beautiful temples' really breathtaking. We saw the laughing Buddha the reclining Buddha and the emerald Buddha. The emerald Buddha has actual outfits to wear and they change his clothes 3 times a year. We also went to the grand palace, again it was spectacular, nothing can compare to it.
After going back to the …
Well after our big night out we woke up a little worst for ware just before check out (giving us loads of time to get our stuff together), I finally summoned the energy to pack my bag and go to Check out, where we ditched our bags for 20 baht. Then in a very delicate state by this time we made in out on to the street as chel wanted a smoothie all I could stomach was chunks of pineapple on a stick. Then we decided to just chill by the hotel pool, that was until ...
... lunch. The market was a very busy with food cooking , cats every were and stalls selling household items ha interesting. We were all prepare to eat off a food stall until we came across the sick fruit - yes a fruit which smells and taste like sick - it was very off putting so we found a little restaurant with air con and enjoyed a ham and cheese sandwich and chips ha ha very cultured. We then return back to the hotel via a tuk tuk and enjoyed a roof ...
... this and it sounded simple enough. Just a train straight to the international airport. However when we got to Sentral things started to go a little wrong. First problem was we couldn't find the station. It seemed to have disappeared. After eventually asking the same lady multiple times she described to us in enough detail a route that succeeded. The station was hidden and for a main hub of transport in KL had very poor directions. When we got there we headed straight for the ...
... stay on in that area. Not ideal. So I was apprehensive when we were told we'd been given one as Ru looked small. Especially when it meant we were given 2 seats there and Spencer was sat across the aisle (lucky him I thought!!). They were clearly trying to be accommodating, but still! However, the bassinets were great. Ru likes to sleep with me most the time, and as the 8 hour flight to Mumbai was a daytime one, I let him have his naps on me when he fell ...
