TravelPod Member ReviewsEastin Hotel Makkasan Bangkok
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.

... smug little "it's not just us" look on their faces!
The market was packed, but interestingly most everyone was Thai.....we might have seen about 8 - 10 other "westerners" the whole time we were on the island. One thing we did notice is that the young Thai girls seemed quite interested in Luke and Jake, we pointed this out to the boys and they groaned!
It wasn't long until I found a Thai massage place and enthusiastically asked ...
... right outside all the temples and for women they have skirts. Or they will give you drab wraps to put around yourself to walk around. Plus you have to cover your shoulders and take off any hats. I was so hot in my very light cardigan! Our next stop was Wat Pho which has the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. The Temple has the largest collection of Buddhas is in all of Thailand. The complex is also home to traditional Thai massage, the school that trains all the ...
... rice. Maybe it's because we've been to China before, but every China town is disappointing, including this one. Now about our night. Silom, the area we are staying in, becomes the red light district at night. This is probably a good place to also mention that Bangkok is so gay friendly that it makes "SF seem like rural Texas." So we shouldn't have been surprised when we went to our hostel and our roommates just came back from a gay sex show. But we were ...
... of when I say Bangkok, I'm sure most people would come up with a short list that includes a red light district, lady boys, Thai massages, and Buddhist temples to even it all out. But there is obviously so much more to Bangkok than just its gritty seedy side. In fact, to my surprise we didn't really see any of the seedy side of Bangkok (not that we were necessarily searching for it). Bangkok was much cleaner than Bali, so we were grateful for that. There was still some ...
