We booked 4 rooms on one floor - ideal - rooms large with 1 family 2 ajoining rooms very convenient.
Swimming pool (we were very much into swimming) on the roof was small and very much already accommodated by other guests. Very annoying when people leave their towels on chairs and go for a siesta.
Breakfast was huge. Wi-Fi great.
Hotel convenient to everything and we caught a Tuktuk to most destinations though did hire a van for a day to the floating market etc.

After 2 long flights and a stopover in one of the smallest airports I've ever seen (and our first drop toilets of the trip) we touched down in Bangkok.

Arrived in Bangkok, ordered room service and sorted out the luggage. Next day chilled by the pool and went to pat pong night market. Following day went to khoa san road to do some more shopping and had a manicure, pedicure and waxing. Went back to hotel, took forever to get back so just spent evening in. Next morning had last swim and caught taxi to airport. Furama silom hotel room 1006

Unfortunately, the “free” WiFi implies also to register somewhere, not too ...
... ATM, a young couple asked us where our hotel was located, and we told them the general direction and turned out theirs was in the same area too! They were the kindest couple from Canada and had never been to Asia before either. Meeting them definitely was a huge bonus and we felt more comfortable about getting out to our hostel than ever--definitely a tender mercy! It was so fun to share a taxi with Julie and Chris. The darling couple we met had been together for 13 years and ...
... section opened at 8:00, for the Visa section we would need to wait until 8:30. No, we couldnt wait inside so stand around on the pavement. Security didnt like us loitering here so we were moved on about 20m to where we sat at a bus stop and waited. Luckily things havent got too hot yet.
On the dot of 8:30 we are back at reception but they are still reluctant to let us in. I explain in detail again, show them the e-mails that we have exchanged and tell ...
