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.

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

After packing and checking out, we walked round the corner to the mini van shop. We hadn't planned to be so close, so it was a great surprise to find that we weren't going to have to fork out …
... stayed a couple of days. I bought a new backpack. (Alpine Lowes fake) for $15) Mine was not sturdy and was already coming apart at the seams. Hopefully, this one won't fall apart. Every store is filled with fake designer items. Too bad we're traveling, or I would load up. We took a TukTuk to the train station and booked our trip to Kanchanaburi. We're taking the 3 hour, open air train.
... defined by the guide as heaven. Monkeys and demons hold a massive statue, you are supposed to take your photo standing like them, to show you reached the symbol of heaven.
The inside of the "open" areas of the royal palace were closed that day as it was a bank holiday. We left the grounds and attempted to get a taxi. We had four taxis refuse to put on the meter and one tut tut wanting a shocking 400 baht (200 baht each....) We opted to buy a 15 baht water in a coffee shop ...
