My friend and I are going to bangkok in 2 and half weeks for the first time. We will be staying there for only 3 nights. We're having a hard time figuring out where to stay. We wanted Holiday Inn Silom but I heard they are under renovation right now, so we are also considering Sofitel, but we're not sure. Since we're there for such a short time, we want to make sure that our hotel is very convenient in terms of airport transfers and helping us out while we're there (we don't want to get lost in translation! haha)We're students and trying to keep the budget under $100/night. Should we go for either? Shoud we look into Skuhumvit too or stick to Silom? Which part is better in terms of location (near river and shopping, commuting, and safety?
