Travel Blogs from Bangkok
October 29th: very early wildlife safari to Khao Yai Natural park. We were looping at some fresh elephant ****, when a bull elephant rushed our of the bush, not more than 5 mt from us, scaring the hell out of one of our guides. We saw some deers, monkeys, leguans and a flock of Hornbills. Afterwards we travelled to Bangkok! Drinks at Skybar and …
Am ajuns in capitala Thailandei, dupa un zbor de aprox 12h.
Un zbor destul de linistitor ca am dormit tot zborul:P.
Am ajuns la hotel, camera a fost ok curata spatioasa dar nu am venit sa dormim :p
Ne-am schimbat am facut un dus si am iesit sa cunoastem orasul la picior.
Am luat o barca se ne plimbam prin canalele Bangkok …
We enjoyed some shopping in the morning and in the afternoon we did a Temples and City Tour with Tour East and saw three of the best temples in Bangkok. Wat Trimitr, the temple of the Golden Buddha, containing a statue made from solid gold weighing 51 tonnes, a fine example of Sukhothai art. Passing through Chinatown our next stop is Wat Po, the …
We arrive in Bangkok at 2.10pm and have a private transfer to the Hotel. It's a nice comfy and very good positioned hotel in Silom road. After check in we go for a walk and enjoy a nice Thai meal for dinner.
As we have got open tickets from Singapore to Bangkok we were not able to get any seat in the morning flights. From 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the airport ? No it is not a nice idea. So we have decided to go back to the city and visit the places where we missed yesterday. Luckily we could joint to a free city tour group and there the bus was full of the …

Historical Traveler Reviews Narai Hotel Bangkok
Clean and reasonably priced, but don't expect a warm welcome from the front desk
The Narai Hotel served our needs for a Bangkok hotel quite well. It was reasonably priced, the room was nice and clean (the housekeeping staff was lovely), and the breakfast buffet was pretty good. We decided to go for the Deluxe room, and we were quite pleased with the big bed and very functional space. However, we were a bit disappointed by the reception at the front desk - we'd heard such wonderful things about Thai hospitality and were surprised by how busy and overworked the cashiers seemed to be. If we'd only stayed in Bangkok during our trip, this would have left us with a less-than-fabulous impression of Thai hospitality - which would have been a terrible shame given our fabulous experiences elsewhere in the country.
I stayed in Narai with 2 other girlfriends for 3 nights in July.
I spent three nights which I had paid for in advance, which I should have just moved and lost the money. The hotel receptionist was rude, I had problems bringing my Thai girlfriend back to the hotel in the evening even though she had checked in with me. The breakfast was awful, the rooms old and smoky. I complained to the manager but he didn't even come back to me.
An all round bad experience.
Oh !!! NON
In my return journey to Europe from Australia, I spend 3 nights at NARAI hotel ( silom road ) . Back site rooms, dark, and 2 stars furniture. Bathrooms 1 star.
Breakfast restaurant, huge but the selection was big also. Breakfast was good, very good.
The pool, if you find it..., is a big hole with water...no ambiance, nothing, the gym dark and no people,its not easy to find it.
Again... no way!!
Narai good location
Good hotel, friendly staff, good location. Stayed here 5 nights, lots of metered taxi and 'tuk-tuk' (three wheeled taxi) waiting in the lobby. Nearby with many shops- crafts, food, tailors and 7-11 stores. The sky train is about 10 - 15 minutes walk. Should try Silom seafood village (less than 10 mins walk) good food, services and live cultural performance provided. Overall Bangkok is different, hot, hectic, cultural and polluted.
Loved the Narai
Fantastic Hotel,location very good too,renovated rooms on the lower floors are great.We spent nearly 10 nights in this hotel which is really a good deal for the Business and Leisure traveller
Can't really go wrong
Stayed there for one night this February and was pleased with the hotel overall. We had a suite that was quite clean (carpet was a little tired, but that's not a big deal) and well furnished. The bathroom was nice but a seperate shower stall would have been nice. The service wasn't bad, and the room service we ordered arrived as expected.
Overall, it's not the sort of hotel you'll fall in love with, but you can't really go wrong with this choice either.
I stayed at Narai few years ago (2002) for two weeks and I was surprised how good it was. It was cheap, but still a very classy hotel. Very good service and clean rooms. The breakfast was exellent with fresh papaya's and watermelons. The pool was very good and you could just dip there quickly when vevr you wanted.
The best thing about Narai was room service, wich was cheap and gorgeous. The best was the fresh fruit platter and chicken with cashew nuts. I recommend it!
Nice and comfy hotel
I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights with my husband in January 2004. The hotel is on Silom Road, so it is easy to get everywhere. The staff is very nice and friendly and I wouldn`t complain about anything. Breakfast was good and housekeeping as well. We dined downstairs one night and food was very good - a little bit expensive though... I would stay there again when visiting Bangkok!
