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.

... with ornamental temples with incredible ease. Nothing seems out of place. We had heard of a mall called MBK, which always makes me think of Milton Bloody Keynes. Walking in on the higher levels it felt more like the Elephant and Castle shopping centre with its narrow walkways and overcrowded, overstocked, retail spaces. Further towards ground level we noticed that modern shopping centre standards were coming into force, and then we walked around the corner to Siam Square and ...

... s girlfriend's cousin for dinner. Very neat restaurant where they have a heat pad in the middle of the table and you order different ingredients to put in a soup broth that you cook yourself and serve yourself at the table. Once back at the hostel and completely drained (being up for 20 hours after walking 14km) we decided to rest up rather than drink the Friday night away in Bangkok. I'm sure we will be back to enjoy the many other Friday nights ahead of us. And the journey ...

Tam pulled a quick one on me and snuck up behind me shortly after that debacle. The sweetest, gentlest, most caring woman extended her hand out to me. I couldn't get over her overwhelming kindness in the first minute upon meeting her. I became more fond of her than I did of Lou Lou. SHE unfortunately made me have nightmares last night about turning into a ...
