Holiday Inn Bangkok
Travel Blogs from Bangkok
On our visit to Bangkok we saw unimaginable beauty through traffic and the worst pollution we had yet encountered on our travels. Surviving a ride in a three-wheeled pedicab leaves one feeling that they can survive anything!
In Bangkok we took a boat tour of Bangkok's floating markets along the Chao Phraya River - a must for all visitors! …
We just got back to the hotel. We stopped by a Tesco and bought some snacks and foods. Also on the way from Ayutthaya, we bought some roti, this wrapping of like a sugar cotton candy like that you put inside it. I've eaten something like this in the past before somewhere else, but I can't remember what it is. From Tesco, we bought a squid jerky and …
So this is the painful part. We are at MBK shopping center now. Xue wanted to do her hair, so here I am waiting for her now. But at least we got to play around MBK for a while, we got this really nice sweet snack. I don't know what it's called. Anyway, this will take a really long time. I'm just glad I have my new PSP and FFVII: Crisis Core.
So yesterday, we were looking around for a local tour to Ayutthaya. When we were in a taxi, our friend said that the taxi driver will take us to Ayutthaya and drive around for 2000 baht and our friend will just show us around. So, now we are waiting for our friend and the taxi to pick us up in the hotel.
After we finished with MBK, we took a Tuk Tuk to Chinatown to eat seafood at T & K Seafood. If you feel adventurous, you can take one as long as you know how to bargain that is, or you just feel like riding one. We have a friend with us, so she did all of the bargaining. T & K Seafood is great! The grilled prawns and the fish are great! Now …

I love Holiday Inn Bangkok
Stay for 4 days. Been around many hotels in Bangkok. Best ever. New and comfortable rooms. Friendly and very helpful staff. Location is the best, next to sky train, shopping within walking distance. Definately my hotel for the next BKK trip. Note: hotel just renovated, very thing is new and clean, modern look. the shower is fantastic. check it out.
We have just returned from a holiday in Thailand which started at the Holiday Inn in Bangkok. It started badly! We arrived around 5 pm after a long flight and simply wanted a shower and to unpack. First we were told that there was a smoking room for us but it was not ready, we had booked a non-smoking room. We were then told that the hotel was full and that there was no room available, either smoking or non-smoking but if we would like to go and have dinner they would see what they could do. Fortunately for us we had booked through Kuoni who had an office in the hotel and sorted it out for us.
Excellent - would go back anytime!!!!
This hotel was fantastic...location, decor, staff - all excellent. The hotel looks like a 5 star hotel and the rooms are well built and very clean. The bathrooms were excellent (stayed here twice). The hotel is right next to Chit Lom Sky Train station. From here, I would suggest you take the train to NANA where you will be right in the heart of the hussle and bustle - market stalls, street food, and 100's of Tailors. If you want to get a suit made, I would reccomend Rickys fashin house (got 2 suits, 6 shirts and a pair of trousers for £240). This is locates between Ploenchit and Nana stations. What more can I say. Loved it. Feel free to mail me with any questions. Oh yeh - the CAFE G restaurant is one not to be missed - excellent buffet for brekfast and dinner.
Excellent service. Great location.
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in late October, 2005. Staff extremely helpfull and polite.
King size room clean and bed very comfortable. The Sky train station is only a 5 minute walk away. We also walked 10 minutes to the Oriental river boat station. Takes you up to the Palace, Chinatown, etc. for only a few Baht's. And its fun. Hotel is on Silom road, which comes alive each evening with the night market a 15 minute walk down the road. There are a couple on mi-markets right by the hotel. We will stay here again.
Priority Club Upgrade
We arrived at the Holiday Inn Chitlom to find that the hotel had been fully booked.
I am a Priority CLub Platinum Member as well as a Royal Ambassador at the intercontinental next door. To our amazement the manager at the Holiday Inn had switched us to the club floor at the next door hotel (Intercontinental) at no extra costs and the stay was amazing.
Top manager and goes to prove the value of enrolling in their priority club even if you don't stay too frequently. You might get an upgrade when they're busy.
This hotel was great. The Thai staff couldn't do enough for us and the room was terrific - after spending 2 weeks in UK/Europe hotels, it was great to get a good size room, peace and quiet, king size bed and airconditioning. Included rate with Breakfast was a good buffet - cereals, fruit, chef cooked eggs, omlettes, etc, etc. Room service & food also great. Stay here for your next stop-over!
Convenient, what can you ask for!!
The hotel has been taken over by Holiday Inn Group and thus the hotel is newly renovated. Atmosphere of the hotel is just fine and I really need to praise the staff there. You would always be greeted friendly.
For those that would use the hotel facilities, you might find it a bit disappointed as the pool is rather small.
However, in terms of location, it is just perfect. You can find numerous shopping centers near by and can access to them even in rainy days, as the hotel gets connected to those shopping centers by the MRT stations and flyovers.
I will definitely stay here again. Very convenient location. Just next to BTS Chitlom station. The atmosphere around here was safe late at night and not too busy nor too quiet. Only a minutes from Big C, a big supermarket, open around 22-23 o'clock. Connected with next Intercontinental hotel with some accessways. Intercontinental is also connected with Gaysorn, and from Gaysorn to CWP & Isetan, you can cross a bridge with roof for pedestrians, so it is very easy to get there. Within 10 minutes walk to Siam Square by pedestrian walkway without rain. Interiors in contemporary style were all clean and new, as the hotel was just renewed this April 2005. I stayed at a superior room at US$ 73, where was large and neatly furnished. Every staff was polite. If you are confused with accomodation near Chit Lom, this hotel undoubtedly has value.
When seeing the lobby and rooms of this hotel, it's hard to imagine that this is a Holiday Inn property. This is a beautiful, swanky, cool hotel. The lobby is full of glass, modern and clean lines and comfy sofas. The bar and restaurants are beautiful. We stayed in a standard room on the 6th floor. A non smoking floor. The rooms are on the small side, but wonderful. The bathroom is very stylish. The shower is lovely, with two shower heads. One rain shower head and a normal hand held. The bed is very comfortable. Overall, very impressed with this hotel. We were able to get a discount rate through a discount hotel site, otherwise it can be very pricey. If you don't get breakfast included in the rate, it is $14USD. You can get breakfast in your room for $11USD. We just found stuff around the hotel to eat. There are many malls in the area and sadly lots of Starbucks. It's easy to grab something cheap to eat in the area.
