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.

... put a downer on our adventures into the city, but it was great to be back in Bangkok all the same. We headed down to MBK at just after noon and started hunting for black trousers and dress shoes. MBK sells pretty much everything, so that's not really a problem, the problem is finding a good deal and making sure that deal fits you. Being caucasian has a few drawbacks when trying to get something with the right leg length in ...
... going to let them!! I pushed back making sure Paul stayed right beside me as I had our tickets. The boat set off to sea quite fast and due to the recent bad weather it was really choppy!! To me; it felt like a fairground ride- I was quite enjoying it until the reps started handing out sick bags to people and those who accepted starting throwing up!! I put my headphones in and pumped up the volume!! I think that helped with the potential seasickness as ...
Last night we tried a Mexican food restaurant called Sunrise Tacos. Donna happened to notice on the menu that you get a free entree and desert on your birthday. So mine was free! The food took a while, but it was worth waiting for. Everything was tasty. I had the fish tacos, ...
... air conditioned and I have an upper sleeping bed so should get some sleep - the train is about 16 hours! There were so many people in the station, and I already made a few friends! Different carriage, but I think the hostel will be full so lots of new people to see there. Loy Krathong, the big festival on the 6th, is so popular that almost everywhere is fully ...
... in. It turns out the flight was delayed due to weather conditions in SFO. When I checked in they told me there was a small chance I could still make my connecting flight, but booked me for the next available option (24 hours later) just in case. So after that hiccup, I went to go through security, also usually a fairly smooth process despite the fact that I always opt-out (mainly in protest of erosion of civil liberties, plus I really enjoy the free “massage”). ...
