TravelPod Member ReviewsFlorida Hotel Bangkok
The Florida Hotel has a very handy location, right at the Phat Thia station on the Skytrain, two stops from Siam Square. That said it is dated and doesn't appear to have had any update since it was built in the 70's. The rooms were gloomy with little natural light and poor room lighting. However they were relatively cheap, they did accommodate our party of 7 in two twins and a triple all adjacent to each other and the staff were very helpful. For the price we paid it was OK but I wouldn't want to stay for anymore than one or two nights.

... seat. The last twenty minutes seemed to last a lifetime, but finally we arrived in Bangkok. We were only a seven minute walk from our hostel, but it felt like a 10 mile hike. By the time we arrived we were all exhausted. A nap was in order. After our nap, we decided to do some exploring. It was already a little late, so we decided to save the major sightseeing for the next day. Instead, we took the advice of a gentleman in the hostel and went to explore Chinatown. ...
... and some other family members had been sent as POWs after the fall of Singapore in 1942. I was headed there to do a bit of a research and understand what they had been through. For those who haven’t read Eric Lomax's book, The Railway Man, or seen the very good, but harrowing film adaptation of its namesake - starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman, I’ll outline a very brief and simplified rundown on the significance of this part of Thailand and ...
