Schon aus dem Bus haben wir (Internetverfügbarkeit ist hier top - danke an Szwen für den Tipp mit der Datenkarte!) gestern direkt die Hoteloptionen in Bangkok geprüft. Leider ist unser "altes" Hotel ausgebucht. Wir finden ein anderes ansprechend beschriebenes im gleichen Stadtteil zu einem noch tolleren Schnäppchenpreis: für 65 Euro pro Zimmer …
... and her boyfriend were also staying down Ko San road so we visited the skybar at the Lebua where 'Hangover 2' was filmed. It was pretty impressive and the drinks cost a fortune, but the views were incredible and I felt like a princess. We went out with Georgie and Adam the second night as well and through the day just did shopping. On our last day we got picked up about 3 to head towards the bus station to catch an overnight bus to ...
... was amazing! The Tuk Tuks in Bangkok are massively different from the ones India. Much bigger, much faster, much more showy and most defiantly more aimed at tourists rather than a real mode of transport, But most notably much more expensive. This wasn't a problem thought as durning our 4 days in Bangkok we mainly used the Sky Train, The Metro and even the Ferry all of which are highly efficient and cheap and with the traffic in Bangkok being so bad it was ...
... week. We were told a variety of tales including that our berths would be in
different parts of the train and few other spurious fantasies designed to induce a quick visit to my wallet. I had already tried the Thai National Rail website but this was worse than Southern Rail in

... stairs to the seating area, and seen the two front seats empty. The best seats on the bus were empty? In disbelief I looked around the bus and noticed I was the first one on. Sinking my backside into the seat I couldn't help but have a big cheesy grin on my face as everyone started getting on the bus. I had so much leg room, and there was two Chinese people sat behind me. Luckily for me, they were only about 4ft nothing so I could recline all the way back, and leaving them ...

I've stayed in this hotel many times, but this time I've left early. I saw staff asking for security fees from visitors and that staff sold drugs that were delivered directly to a hotel room. I booked a big expensive room and first found glass on the floor around the bed, hair and food rests on the sofa and rug and sauce sprinkles all over the kitchen floor... pubic hair in my coffee that I pulled out of my mouth, yuck!!! ...that was not all... Further, I had a privilege card given to me by the hotel that offers discounts (10%) to dental smile and a hospital. When I asked the staff to call me a taxi to send me there, the staff sent me to dental spa and there was no discount... again ridiculous!!! Hospital also did not give the discount as promised by the hotel. The hotel did not fix anything and did not reimbursed me. The last day they've asked me to stay around to talk to the police about what I've witnesses, but charged me the full fee for the day. When I told them that I disagreed with their bill, they did not want to change it and only asked when I would come back... What a bunch of !@#$... I will never ever return to this hotel

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand President Bangkok
We booked the hotel directly in early November to reserve a suite for three adults for the New Year's Eve long-week-end. We identified that we required a three beds (twin +one single bed/or pull out couch.) The hotel acknowledged the request and accepted our reservation.
The hotel is in a very good location as it is in the heart of the lively Sukhumvit neighborhood. It is a short 2-minute walk to the Skytrain which makes it convenient as well. Some sites rate this hotel as a 3 1/2 star which I think is a bit generous. It is fairly nice for Bangkok, but the rooms are only up to the standards of a cheap American motel. The room had a kitchennette, which we didn't need but could be nice for some, and a comfortable bed, tv, etc. The shower was a bit pathetic as the water only trickled out and the shower head was half broken. We had two rooms and it was the same in both. Also, the room smelled a bit musty which can easily be explained by the mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. I don't mean that this place was a dump, because that's not the case. It is completely remodeled and is very modern, just signs of the aging building underneath are apparent. It is a perfectly nice place to stay if you get a good price. I wouldn't spend more than USD$70 as you can find better hotels in Bangkok at that price.
Spent 2 nights here during my 2 week trip to Thailand. While it was not the best hotel we stayed during the trip, I think for Bangkok this is quite a reasonable hotel.
We have always stayed at the Grand President since the last 4 years. They have refurbished the lobby, restaurant & have started on the rooms.
What can I say - I was impressed. I had never been to Bangkok before and I was a little concerned whether I had booked the right hotel in the right location.
Bad place that should be avoided
The grand president has the worse staff, that I have ever encountered. I ordered a suite for a week end and payed in advance. When I arrived, the suite was not ready and they put me instead into a normal room. the clerk did appologize and offered me some compensation in form of a supplementary breakfast. On check out, the breakfast was charged, and when i started to complain, i was told, that if I don't pay immediately, they call the police.
Lot's of trouble for the cost of a breakfast. I did not see my money and I won't see the grand president from the inside again.
If you want to stay in a good hotel - stay away from the grand president
Love the Grand President
A great place to stay. I travel to Bangkok several times each year; have stayed at Ambassador (cheap, and deservedly so), Royal Asia Lodge (same), Majestic Suites, and several others, but Grand President is my favorite. Hotel has three towers, each with a swimming pool. Several nice restaurants, and a small but decent gym. This is not the JW Marriott, but is a great value for the money.
Website shows renovated apartments, which we booked. When we arrived there were none available (Sorry) and for the same price we had to stay in a very tired appartment. When we checked out with credit card a 5% surcharge was requested. Place is also under renovation.
