Morning drive to the Ancient city, only one-hour far from the Bangkok city.
As mentioned before, we had misunderstood the term The Ancient City, and thought it was going to be Ayuthaya, the Ancient Capital of Thailand. The so called Ancient City we were supposed to visit is a kind of …
On my second day in Bangkok...have walked a lot today and seen a lot of central Bangkok...will update when I have some more time...
This is where it all starts on the 6th October! Scroll into the map to see the detail. Watch for updates as we go!
This day is a bum day, swim, eat, sleep, swim, eat, sleep, eat, eat and eat. Tom yum... phad thai... oh, my favorite cow neow (sticky rice) with mango, kawa (guava), and all those monosyllabic, multitonal thai names for their food. I already miss the green chicken curry, anyway, I bought the paste for cooking back home or to the Bahamas.
We checked out and headed back to Bangkok. VOILA! We are going to Phra Nomhat Kiri. Know what that is?, another palace.....Aaaaaaaaah! Thank God, or thank Buddha, there's a cable car going up the mountain where the palace is. There we enjoyed the commune with our evolutionary species.... the monkeys. Hours later, we were in Bangkok, traffic just …

Historical Traveler Reviews Landmark Bangkok
This is really a 4 star hotel for the price of 3 stars
My husband and I stayed in this hotel during a Feb, 2005 tour of Thailand. It is in a prime though hectic location in Bangkok. The rooms were large and spacious, clean and had a large bathroom with separate shower and tub. The buffett breakfast (included in our tour) was outstanding. Nice swimmjng pool on the 9th floor and very professional staff.We would stay there again.
Poor hotel, poor location
Unless you are a male interested in the seedier side of Bangkok nightlife, this hotel, immediately next to the infamous Nana Entertainment Complex, is a poor choice.
Service is substandard. I booked a room online at a discounted rate. They didn't honor that rate.
The food is pretty good.
For about the same price, you can stay at the Conrad... this is one of the best hotels in Bangkok.
Having stayed at many Bangkok hotels, I normally always come back to the Landmark. The location on Sukhumvit Road is excellent and the hotel staff amongst the friendliest in Bangkok, especially the babysitters (who are normally the housemaids). We used the same babysitter three nights in a row and instead of just turning up and taking the money, she came equiped with reading books and pencils and spent three nights teaching our children Thai ! The rooms are of a very high standard and clean, and the suites represent very good value indeed. The pool is of a good size and the childrens pool seems to be quite safe. The restaurants are also of a high standard, but not always full. The Huntsman's English Pub is excellent and the associated Leisure Club facilities also top notch. My only gripe is the steep climb to get to the entrance - but that is small price to pay !!
I can only echo what other people have said...excellant value hotel, always spotless, in great location. Huntsman English pub in the basement if you are desperate for an English pint or some football! Easy access to NANA station on the sky train and only a few minutes walk from the best restaurant in Bangkok [Cabbages and Condoms] on Sukhumvit Soi 12!!
I have stayed here twice before and it is an excellent hotel, with superb service. The buffet breakfast here (1st floor main) is absolutely the best that offer freshly squeezed juices and a great selection of both american and asian dishes!!
Superb hotel in a great location very close to the Skytrain which is very easy to use. The breakfast, room service, swimming pool and every other facility was five star quality. I would definately stay here again.
Brilliant hotel and staff to match!
This hotel is wonderfully located for great restaurants and public transportation. The staff are professional and happy to assist! The new Lifestyle Floor was very impressive, beds very comfortable and bathroom fantastic. Room service was impressive (and that is very rare!). The buffet breakfast is brilliant, huge selection and eggs, pancakes and waffles cooked to order. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone!
A truly first class hotel and from the moment you arrive at the front door you will feel most welcome by staff that are both corteous and very friendly.
A nice 5 star
A different world compared to its surroundings. The hotel is located just next to a skytrain stop making It easy to get around in bangkok, which is a very important consideration in Bangkok.
The service was fine and the rooms were to its highest standard. I only wished that it looked more exotic rather than a hotel you can find anywhere in the world.
The breakfast buffet on the upper floor was superb compared to the lower coffee shop one.
Location, location, location
When one visit a south-east asian city, it is always a question what sort of experience do you really want to have - the luxurious one or the backalley-backpacker-rustic one.
In Bangkok I would recommend to go luxurious, simply because I for one need a place to recoup when my energy is low after a long day travelling etc. When that need arise, it is two things that matters; steady supply of A/C and a good location. The Landmark supply the best of both parts. In the middle of Sukhumvit Road you can't go better location in Bangkok - this is top down-town. And the hotel itself is perfect when it comes to space, service, fascilities and A/C. Go see for your self,
