... ins überschwemmten Gebiet und von dort zurück transportiert. Ich habe ja viele Bilder am Fernsehen und im Internet gesehen, das Ganze "live" zu erleben, ging mir dann aber doch ganz schön unter die Haut!

Die Prognosen für die nächsten Tage sind gemischt und ich bin gespannt, wie sich mir die Stadt bei meiner Rückkehr nach Bangkok in einer Woche präsentieren wird.

    The Westin Grande Sukhumvit

    The staff was very friendly and I was lucky and able to book a room as a walk-in. The room was on the 19th floor and gave a beautiful night view of downtown Bangkok. The hotel is also located right next to the sky train station.

    Unfortunately, in order to get to many of the big tourist sites, you'll need to take a sky train and then take a ferry but its not a huge disadvantage. Also, whatever you do, DO NOT use the business center internet. It costs $5USD for 15 minutes of use. Instead, go across the street to an internet cafe and pay about $.50USD for about an hour of use.

    Overall, the service was really good at this hotel but of course it comes with a price tag. However, it was safe and comfortable.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Grande Sukhumvit, Bangkok

    Great location

    from

    The Westin is wonderfully located nearby the BTS and underground. So you can reach the shoppingmalls, the weekendmarket and the Grand Palace (take the serviceboat at the BTS station near the river) easily.

    The rooms are typically Westin-style. But that's OK. The heavenly bed is the best there is in Thailand. We've stayed in many hotels after our first stay at the Westin but none of the had such a bed. We were glad when we returned...

    The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The breakfast is very tastefull. It's a pity the swimmingpool closes at 7 or 8. A bit early.

    Conclusion: good value for the price you pay.

    Superb Hotel, Great Service, Great Location

    from

    I stayed in Westin Grande Sukhumvit Hotel for 4 nights while on business in Bangkok and was greatly impressed. In the UK this 4-star hotel would certainly be a 5-star hotel.

    Good service, decent location, heavenly bed

    from

    Had a lot of troubling deciding which hotel to stay on for my brief (long weekend) stay in Bangkok - the user reviews of virtually every hotel in this fabulous tourist city were all so full of praise. The thing that clinched it for the Westin in my case was the incredible deal I got online. I won't give away how much - but let's put it this way: 3-star price for 5-star hotel.

    Special service and value

    from

    This Starwood property remains a good tourist booking and a superb expense account venue. The hotel delivers what counts most: security; a clean, quiet, well-appointed room; efficient 24-hour service; good restaurants; and for those who pay an extra $US30 per night for the lower room categories, a fine Executive Lounge. A much appreciated option is the in-room massage service, which operates from 10 am -12 pm daily. Some of the masseuses have been at the hotel for over five years and all of them are very professional and kind. The swimming pool is rather small, but the exercise area is more than adequate. Security is discrete and efficient; guests are confirmed by the front desk and escorted to your room by hotel staff. Try to book a room facing east. Some mornings, you will witness a gorgeous sunrise.

    Perfect Home Base in Bangkok

    from

    I stayed here two nights after reserving this hotel through Priceline. Lives up with typical Westin standards. Great location next to Skytrain and Subway. Shower could have used a little bit of bleach, as there was some mildew on grout and wooden grate. Didn't eat at the hotel or use its gym/pool, but they looked and sounded nice. Concierge was helpful if not completely knowledgable. For what I paid, I would not hesitate staying here again.

    Not a guest! a friend

    from

    I arrived at my hotel unannounced, and in a wheelchair! no effort spared, Complimentary coffee was ordered whilst my needs discussed, I was then shown to my room on the 19th floor, an extra bed soon appeared, [in case I had too much to drink, it was slightly lower]. When the catering manager heard I was English and from his neck of the woods, roast beef and yorkshire pudding was put on the menu specialy for me!! feteted, treated, and looked after like a king, what a hotel, no, it was not a hotel it was like Home Thornton

    Good Location

    from

    Stayed 4 nights in Dec 2004. Room rate abt USD92 incl 2 daily breakfast. Location is good. one minute walk to BTS and 2 minutes to MRT. Staffs very polite and helpful

    Breakfast very good selection. Freshly squeezed juice available

    But few choices of restaurant. Can go to Sheraton Grande just across the street if like hotel food. Otherwise, there are plenty of restaurants around. Taxi to airport is approx 30 minutes
