The End is Nigh

Leaving the islands to head back to Bangkok was the beginning of the end for us. It meant saying goodbye to sea and sand and saying hello to the smoggy city, a curfew and potentially military everywhere. We love Bangkok but weren't sure what to expect there during the coup. At least we got to see Samui airport again. It's so beautiful and islandy! The flight was quick and painless and Ru was very good. We were hopeful for the long haul coming up. He ...

Bangkok!

... faster too. During our 4 days we visited most of the sights. The grand palace, the reclining Buddha, temples and huge shopping malls. Seeing almost as many westerners as we did Thai's, there was no one taking pictures of us here! On Saturday we went to the Weekend Market which is one of the worlds biggest markets. It is a maze and almost impossible to find your way around. Selling everything from clothes, sweets, home ware, art, tiny puppies, live fish, ...

Bangkok grows hotter and busier by the day

... together on the exact train that we wanted.

His final words as I paid him were “what about my tip?” (He felt ********e by). My retort was immediate and it left him totally silenced…..”Never eat yellow snow”……

Speaking of snow, despite 34 degrees of heat there was an abundance of the stuff in the forecourts of the vast “posh” shopping malls I mentioned earlier.

Day 58 - After a shattering day yesterday, we decide to stay local and do something other than wats! We go and visit Jim Thompson House and Museum, we are all intrigued as we don't really know what it's about.

It's a very hot day indeed, on the way to the house we see lots of protesters, calmly sitting around. The Thai prime minister, Yingluck has decided to call elections, so for now at least I think the ...

... today and headed down to our hostel where we are staying for 2 nights, we had an explore of this side of Bangkok and a temple and booked our adventures for the next 6 weeks with a bus group called Stray. It's basically a hop on and off bus which includes loads of stuff which you wouldn't normally do if you were to go at it alone. It doesn't restrict you to anything or time frames but includes a few cool things like tree houses in rainforest, tubing down rivers, waterfalls Elephant ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Sukhumvit Hotel Bangkok

    Lots of room for improvement

    from

    Just spent 3 nights at this hotel because they are currently giving away rooms at $80/night. Beware of the small print: there is a 7% government tax and 10% service charge that is added to the rate.

    Oh dear!

    from

    We stayed for 3 nights in a Silver room. This was the most basic category but the room was clean, comfortable and spacious.

    Avoid this hotel

    from

    Stayed 3 nights at this hotel in early August 2006. Made our reservation through Smartstay website which is cheaper than the Accor website and includes breakfast. We stayed at this hotel because of the reputation of the Sofitel brand as a 5 star hotel.

    Go to the Mandarin - do not pass go!

    from

    Well, if this was not considered a five star hotel I would not complain about our stay but when comparing the Grand Sukumvit to the other 5 star choices in Bangkok, I feel it will be a disapointment to most travelers.

    Underrated Sukhumvit

    from

    I had read various scathing reviews about this hotel and I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised by it. Stayed 3 nights in a silver room which was comfortable, spacious and modern. Room was clean, no complaints.

    Hotel was tucked away in a soi (lane) about 3 minutes walk from the main road and the BTS station. The alley leading to the main access road is usually busy, but we had no problems traversing it.

    The only problem was that there are only 2 lifts functioning in the hotel at any one time, so it can be quite a hassle to get about during busy periods.

    On the whole, though, service was efficient and friendly and we would definitely go back again.

    Worst experience ever

    from

    We ended up in this hotel after we saw great pix on the Sofitel web site and soon found out we had been fooled.

    Not a luxury hotel

    from

    This is probably the newest hotel in Bangkok and is located near Nana Skytrain, making it a good location for tourists as well as business travellers. We were recommended this area by people who had lived in Bangkok.

    Still unfinished

    from

    We stayed for 4 nights at this hotel in a silver room which I presume is a standard. The light fittings are all modern and more than adequate. Bathroom fittings are high quality with excellent shower/wet room and bath. There is plenty of wardrobe space but no bathrobe provided, so bring your own. Despite being officially opened for a month, the hotel is not completed yet with building work going on in certain areas, although there is no obvious noise in the rooms or reception areas. The small swimming pool is relaxing but the suana is not finished. Fitness room is very good. Internet is provided free of charge in the business centre. Ask at receptiion and they will log in with password.

    Bad experience at this Sofitel

    I would recommend travellors to avoid this hotel for the following reasons:
