Left Auckland today on our long 12 hour non stop flight to Bangkok. Our destination in Thailand is Chiang Rai but as we could not make a connecting flight we had to put our heads down in Bangkok. We chose the airport hotel as we did not need to look around Bangkok having been there many times before.

Flight was ok with good entertainment …

We returned to the room for cartoons and news. We completed our packing with no real issues, we decided to relax till checkout of the room which consisted of reading books and …

Further delays

A travel blog entry by matt746

Well once I arrived in Bangkok I was expecting a further short delay of a couple of hours before my eventual return to Australia. I was not in luck and was met by a kind young lady with a sign saying 'Sydney Travellers', knowing that this could not be good I made my presence known and then I was shown my new itinerary. I would be departing tomorrow …

Suvarnabhumi Airport

A travel blog entry by tyga


This morning we had a sleep in then went down for breakfast at the hotel. After breakfast we packed our bags and checked out of the hotel.

We took the Skytrain around to Phaya Thai station and then caught the airport express train to Suvarnabhumi Airport. The express train was quite good and cheap, only 90 baht. After arriving at the …

    Very nice comfortable, quiet, clean hotel with friendly staff. Great Breakfast buffet. Perfect if needing to stay overnight to connect to other flights.

    Being positioned right near the airport, it was extremely convenient to get off the plane and be at the hotel in under 10mins of collecting my baggge. The food lounge has great tasting food that was just what I needed when I got off the plane late in the evening. The room was comfotable and tidy in the usual Novotel style, and the sheer layout and size of the hotel was surprising as I was expecting less. Overall, a great place to stay particular when you need a rest straight after a long flight

    Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport Racha Thewa

    Average Hotel Lodging


    I was a bit disappointed with this hotel. The rooms are quite small (though relatively clean) and the staff, though numerous, are unable to help with much other than pointing which direction you should go to reach your destination (the hotel is not large enough to justify so many people milling around the lobby while the front desk remains understaffed, at least with respect to desk clerks who can check you in and out in a timely fashion). We arrived around 7:30pm and were looking forward to at least a decent meal (the hotel boasts that they have numerous restaurants), but found that we were heavily discouraged from ordering anything a la carte and pretty much had to resign ourselves to the buffet (which was okay as far as the food quality, but I generally don't like buffets and did not enjoy having to pay for a buffet dinner at more than double the cost of a single plate of food (which is all most of us eat for dinner in any event)). Also, when you check out and they tell you it is much to far to walk to the terminal, ignore them...unless you are on crutches or sorely injured, it is a 5 minute walk through the parking lot (out the back door) which is much faster than their shuttle.

    Laisse vraiment à désirer...


    Est ce parce qu il est en rodage et ouvert depuis peu qu il y a autant de dysfonctionnements dans cet hotel?? Au check out et check in on fait la queue comme à l aeroport ou à la poste en france. Mauvais accueil. Trés cher même si trés confortable. Trés choquant pour un hôtel d'aeroport: le petit déjeuner buffet compris ds le prix de la chambre ne commence qu' à 06h du matin...Notre vol étant tôt, nous avons eu droit à du café et à des n y avait rien d 'autre. Mauvais restaurant et trés cher. Service médiocre pour la thailande. Globalement une mauvaise expérience.

    Catch a taxi into the city


    While some allowances should be made for "settling-in" problems - the hotel is a long way from providing anywhere near a basic level of service. From picking up our bags to walking into the room took 2 hours, making a nonsense of the "benefit" of staying at the Novotel Airport hotel. The check-in is very, very slow. Ours took nearly an hour, with delays due in part to other guests returning keys and asking for different rooms as theirs had not been cleaned. The walk-way from the airport has not/not yet been built. The hotel does provide a complimentary shuttle, if you can find it! Our room was on the 5th floor and was a 150-200 metre walk from the lift. The rooms are lovely, but as another guest has mentioned - they offer little privacy unless you close the curtains. The return trip from the hotel back to the airport was a nightmare. We waited 40 minutes before we were able to get into one of the complimentary shuttle vans, as it was constantly taken-over by a tour guide who pushed other hotel guests aside while all 40 of her "clients" were ferried back to the airport, 8 at a time. The hotel staff allowed this to happen, even helping the tour groups with their baggage!! All this, despite many complaints from the other 30 guests who were standing at the kerb waiting for transport. Appalling service. We had planned to stay at the Novotel on our return visit but cancelled and stayed in the city instead.

    Nice hotel, some difficulties


    Really nice new hotel close to the new Bangkok International Airport. If u like to have a nice first impression of Bangkok or you need some sleep after a long flight - this hotel is a good choice and worth its price.

    Rooms are stylish and spacious and the bathrooms are just wonderful.

    Some minor difficulties (toilet blocked & long check in) will hopefully improve - the hotel has newly opened and some starting problems are normal.

    Mixed impressions


    We had 8 hours between flights and I'm glad we booked this room - it is the only hotel that would've worked for us. It will be much more convenient when the walkway is finished, but in the meantime the shuttle is a perfectly reasonable alternative. Just know that it waits outside gate 4 and leaves about every 15 minutes.

    Allow Time for Check-Out


    I stayed in a "Deluxe 1 King Bed" room for one night during the second week of October 2006. It was quite exciting as the hotel, as well as the airport, was brand-new and squeaky clean. Personally I also liked the overall decor and spacious layout of both the guest room and public areas; modern yet not too futuristic.

    Give them a year (or two)


    I stayed in the hotel twice during the first week of the airport being open. In short, there are numerous issues the Accor Group needs to address before this hotel can live up to its stars. Fortunately, virtually all of those problematic issues will be resolved when the newness of the establishment wears off.

    Teething problems?


    I stayed here for one night. My initial impression was Wow!! The lobby is huge, modern and very impressive. That's the best part. Now for the problems:

    Excellent hotel, 5 minutes to the airport


    This is the only hotel at Suvarnabhumi Airport so they could have made do with any old thing but this hotel is fabulous. Gorgeous rooms, extremely comfortable beds, wonderful buffet breakfast, very helpful and courteous staff and good security. There is also a free 24 hour airport shuttle to and from the airport. A taxi into Bangkok costs about $10.

    The pictures on the Novotel website do not do it justice at all.

    Not Working Well - Many Issues


    I stayed at this hotel on October 3rd for 1 night. On the positive side the hotel is new, architecturally pleasing and quasi convenient. Now my experience, I list my issues 1 by 1:
