After another 6 hour flight we land in Bangkok around 7pm local time, collect our backpacks and start looking for the metro to get to our hotel.
We should have considered that it's pouring rain and we might not want to walk to the hotel from the BTS and get soaking wet - oh well we managed to get to the hotel around 9 pm and decided to …
Arrivée à l'aéroport comme prévu à 6h30 après une petite nuit dans l'avion. On récupère nos bagages et on passe l'immigration où on nous fait le visa gratuit de 30 jours.
Puis on prend le Airport Express direction le centre ville. Mégalopole américaine au milieu des palmiers : contraste !
Puis on change pour prendre le métro. Connexion ext …
We were the first ones downstairs for breakfast today. Ton was outside his family's quarters doing his exercises which made me feel guilty. We opted for the Asian breakfast again. Today it was yoghurt, a clear pork & vege soup, omelette with Asian cucumbers, chicken in ginger and chili, and watermelon. I am sure these people can't eat this much …
For our last few nights in Asia we decided to head back to our base and much loved city of Bangkok.
Yan had little idea of the weekend that awaited her, Asif lined up a series of surprises which culminated to the ultimate question...Yan said yes...we got engaged! Yay!
Really enjoying the tropical weather again! Spent two nights in Bangkok and we were able to get a full-day in exploring some sites of the old city. We visited the magnificent Grand Palace with its beautiful glittering golden rooftops and soaring pagodas...and many more cool little temples. We ended the day on a boat exploring the old canals of the …

The W times 10
If you like the W hotels, you'll love the Metropolitan. The rooms are enormous, the staff is incredible, the pool is gorgeous, and room service food is out of this world. Five stars to this hotel.
You hear a lot about the Peninsula, Sukothai, etc., but this one blows them all out of the water if you're into elegant and minimalist design.
My wife and I spent 3 night at the Metropolitan in Bangkok in April at the start of our holiday...
Having stayed at a number of the top hotels in Bangkok, I would not hesitate in recommending The Metropolitan. The decor is chic, stylish and striking. The rooms are very large and the bathrooms are the best in the city. Someone else mentioned the fabulous bathrobes...oh yes! I found the service to be excellent and accomodating to our requests. Don't forget to email them before booking as you'll probably get even lower rates than those listed on the website.
Stayed here for 3 nights on a very good weekend promotion package. Very slick design hotel, attentive and warm service, free internet use and the business centre even charged my cell phone as I had forgotten to bring my charger, huge rooms with complimentary fruit bowl replenished during the day, lovely bathroom and great herbal toiletries. We also received a complimentary massage in the zen like spa.
Two choices of restaurant to breakfast in, both serving wide selection of food including great spread of tropical fruits. Beautiful pool but does attract its fair share of poseurs...
It's a relatively new hotel and during our three days there none of the taxi drivers knew where it was located - be sure to bring a map / address in Thai with you.
Wonderful stay at the Met in Bangkok. Stayed three nights at beginning of holiday and back for another night at the end. Very chilled and relaxing place. Is the old YMCA building and the rooms are enormous. Wonderful bathrooms, and very comfy beds. We stayed in rooms overlooking the pool and restaurant area, which I can highly recommend. Wouldn't bother looking at any other hotels if I was going back to Bangkok. Highly recommended.
Whilst the service at this hotel can be a little up and down, rest assured I have been back several times - by choice. I love it, and I am fussy fussy fussy. The rooms are simply enormous, especially if travelling for business, and well appointed .... enough space to spread out into a little home. Without a doubt, amazing products and the best bathrobes!
It's amazing what you can do with a YMCA!
We've just returned from Bangkok, and stayed at the Metropolitan for one night. It's a great hotel for design conscious guests and we loved it.
We woke up really early due to jet lag and headed down to the pool for a swim. We had it all to ourselves. We had breakfast at the restaurant that overlooks the pool. Great choice of breads, croissants, juices and cooked eggs!
The staff are very friendly and made our stay extremely enjoyable. I would recommend this hotel to anybody going to Bangkok!
I just stayed at the hotel for 3 days and can only highly recommend it. Rooms are spacious, beautifully designed in dark woods and bathrooms are very large. All the little extras you are looking for are there. CD player, great soaps&shampoo, tea/coffee in the room, nice bathrobes, beautiful bedlinen etc.
The hotel offers a beautiful spa and outside swimmingpool. The restaurant with the outside terrace is fab and overlooks the pool. Staff was always helpful and at hand with recommendation.
The place seems to be right out of Wallpaper* and we had to force ourselves to go out and see Bangkok because hanging out at the pool, getting a massage and lunching on the terrace was just too tempting. If you like design that's the place for you!
We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at the Metropolitan. You would never believe they converted a YMCA to make this stunning hotel (except for a minor plumbing issue.) We had a great view of the large, aesthetic, and well-maintained pool though it received only about 5 hours of sun a day. The restaurants served the some of the best food we ate during our two week trip. The staff helped us with all of our needs and consistently greeted us with smiles. The business center had a high speed internet connection (the first 15 minutes were free). An upscale bar connects to the hotel with tasty if pricey drinks. They had quite of selection of infused vodkas. This hotel should appeal to travelers who prefer modern, trendy establishments over more conservative hotels like the Pennisula or the Oriental. I highly recommend the Metropolitan.
