... protesting. It is the protesting that is causing violence and the people are not against the Military they are against the government. On Thursday night a Military Coup was declared. The Military arrested some politicians, took over the TV and Radio stations and shut them down and imposed a curfew on the whole country. Meaning that non one can be out of their homes between 10pm and 5am. This was a wee bit scary at first as some of my firends in other provences had ...
... to Helsinki was pretty short and uneventful apart from the meal ... i was offered a choice of a meat or fish sandwich ... i chose meat ... took one bite and it was the most disgusting thing i ever tasted ... turned out it was REINDEER (Finnish people are weird, how can you eat Rudolf? ... sure to say i will never be eating that again!)
The 2nd flight from Helsinki was a long one ... about 11 hours. Thankfully the 2 seats next to me were empty so ...
... I think we both fell asleep by 8pm!
We spent our first day in the city getting a feel for the place, browsing the many market stalls, finding the post office, buying souvenirs, and generally trying to keep away from the vast number of thieves and scams in the area. After 22 years of never eating pad thai, and being of the opinion that the dish was rather dull in flavour, I was introduced to the pad thai of Bangkok. And boy was I wrong! Street stall ...
... taste. I had a club sandwich for lunch. It was amazing. What, sometimes you need a break from incredible fresh cooked soups, curries and deep fried delights.

Bangkok is filthy and sweaty, looking forward to my first dip in the South China Sea. Love you all!
... even when we paid the slightly pricey yet understandable entrance fee, was the FREE DRINKS until 1am. I feel FREE DRINKS needs to be capitalised because it doesn’t happen often, especially in such a spectacular location on New Year’s Eve. Naturally we made the most of this for the next few hours, despite the fact the butler taking our drink requests was seemingly more interested in posing for pictures with Ferg than fetching our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Nana Hotel Bangkok
First impressions of the hotel are not too bad. The location is quite interesting (oppsite the infamous Nana Plaza) and the reception is ok. The staff were a little surly but not too bad.
Hated Nana hotel in Bangkok, unclean and shabby...
My stay lasted two nights and I left and stayed at Grace after a fight with management. Their attitude was very poor and rude. The rooms are filthy and even sheets did not feel clean. If you want to stay in that area Grace and several others are better options for cheaper prices.
Keep an eye on your credit card
We stayed at this hotel due to circumstances beyond our control, it was old & in need of renovations, the corner room we had was huge. But after arriving back in Australia we found the desk clerks had duplicated out AMEX card while we were checking in/out. If you have to stay here make sure you never let your card out out of your site.
The Nana Hotel, there is no better place in Bangkok!
I always stay at the Nana Hotel when I come to Bangkok. The air conditioned rooms are inexpensive (1100 Baht or $28US) in reasonable condition. Free bottled drinking water is provided in the room refrigerator every day. the bathrooms are clean. room service is excellent. a small tip of $2 is highly appreciated by the very friendly staff. If you are a single guy, there are plenty of "beer bars" and "go go bars" right outside. The "Angels Disco" downstairs is really rocking every night and filled with beautiful friendly Thai girls. There is a great restaurant adjacent to the lobby open 24 hours a day and serves both Thai and western food. this is a great hotel!
perfect location, the only problem is that
IS ALWAYS FULLY BOOKED
I have been visiting Thailand for over 20 years. The Nana Hotel in Bangkok is by far the best value. Always friendly staff, even the dragon lady at the front counter. They seem to remember return guests. The Golden Beer Bar attached to street side of hotel is the best place to have a cool one and to watch humanity walk by. The hotel is located near some of Bangkok's night life so if you are looking for a quiet night in the country, this may not be for you. I actually go there for the sounds of the city. Yes, many of the guests are men, but I have seen all at the Nana Hotel, including families, older retired western couples, and regular tourists doing regular sightseeing tours. The Nana Hotel has a Travel Agency in the lobby. All types of transportation can be booked. The restaurant is decent and buffet breakfast comes with room. The Skytrain stops just around the corner. The rooms may not be the newest but the cleaning staff always provides a clean room daily. Laundary can be sent out from hotel room and is back ususally within 24 hours. I have never had any clothing lost. I have never had anything missing from my room. If you like to spend more money, the Marriott next door is about $150.00 + and you don't get the real "feel" of Bangkok. Yes, the rooms at the Nana are somewhat aged but fully functional. I have never had any problems with air conditioning, water, TV, or fridge in room. All in all, a good value. Take some time in the morning and just sit in one of the comfortable lounge chairs in the lobby and watch the "regulars" gather. Good conversation can be had in the lobby. Free copy of English verson of Bangkok Post provided to each room.
Good value Hotel
Stayed there last time in Bangkok. Reasonably priced and value for money. Friendly efficient staff.
The Nana is an excellent hotel for the money. A standard room is 1100 Baht (less than £20 per night) and yet is superior to many 3* hotels found in the UK. I have stayed there on more than 6 occasions and have never had any problems.
Basic Nice Hotel
A basic hotel. Very central. The rooms are in need of renovation but the maid service is good. Located just opposite a bar area with lots of beer bars and go go bars. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Located near the overhead railway. It has 24 hour room service, a disco, good food in the coffee shop and a nice pool. All this for £25 per night per room. So if a couple stay its only £12.50 each. having said that it can get a bit raunchy outside in the early hours, so if your easily offended by ladies of the night. be warned. All in all if your only staying for a couple of nights and want a cheap hotel very central then this is fine.
