What would you pick from these 4 hotels?

and why?

Looking through the Tripadvisor ratings, the hotels that I have identified as the contenders for me to book for 3 nights in January are:

The Marriot and the Suragase

Eastin Grand Sathorn

Okura Prestige; and

St Regis.

What do you think would be the best bet from those 4? I am travelling with my 15 year old daughter. I want to relax on the last few days of my holiday. However, I would also likely to see a few things in Bangkok.

I fly home to the UK from BKK airport at 930am on the final day so that would be considered as well.

I have been vacationing in Bangkok regularly for 19 years and the St.Regis is in one of my two, regular neighborhoods. I have stayed at the St.Regis which was nice and I drop by there regularly for a snack and cold drink either on my way back to my Airbnb, around the corner, or to either the Anantara Siam Hotel or the Hansar Hotel, also around the corner as I fluctuate where I stay. I was just there in both 2017 and 2018.

Although the St.Regis is very nice, I would personally select the Anantara Siam Hotel (former Four Seasons Hotel) that is right there next to it. It's a great, small, beautiful, low-rise hotel (nearly extinct in Bangkok), really good restaurants, especially Biscotti at lunch, and great staff.

As for your other hotel selections, I know of them, but haven't stayed at them. But, if your selection is only from the list that you have submitted, then I would go for the St. Regis. I'm in Bangkok for 3 weeks straight of my annual 6-week, S.E. Asian vacation and am out and about a lot.

Oh, and don't worry about the traffic as that's what the skytrain is for and it's right there attached to the St. Regis.

Have a wonderful trip.

Happy Travels!

The Okura is in an area with mostly offices and not so interesting for tourists. The best thing about the Okura is that it's not too far from the BTS and the expressway entrance. It may take a lot longer to get to/from the St. Regis by taxi, which you will presumably do when coming from the airport and going back.

I have stayed at the Eastin and while it is very good i thought that was a tad far from evetything. Not central enough.

"It may take a lot longer to get to/from the St. Regis by taxi, which you will presumably do when coming from the airport and going back."

I've been staying in the St. Regis neighborhood, almost annually, for nearly 2 decades, long before the hotel was even built, and I don't find it being a time problem getting either to the neighborhood or going back to the airport from the neighborhood. It all depends on what time one is on the streets in Bangkok period. I have gotten to the airport in 45 minutes and other times it's been an hour.

Upon arrival, and after getting my luggage at the airport, I walk over to the AOT car service counter and ask for the cheapest car and then the driver takes my luggage and off we go into a very comfortable car. I buy the round-trip fare and then AOT picks me up, on time, at my hotel and takes me back to the airport for my departure on to my next country. It's worth the price as one never knows how long one will be stuck in traffic in Bangkok and it's good to be in a comfortable car and use it as a bit of site-seeing along the way. I remember spending half an hour in a taxi just going from Sukhumvit 24 to Nana due to the time that I was in the taxi.

Happy Travels!

Hi ,

I have stayed at the Eastin before and have again booked my stay in August 2018.

It's a lovely hotel with direct access to the Surasak BTS from the 3rd floor of the hotel.

Surasak to Siam is 4 stops (10 mins)on the BTS

Saphan Taksin ( river pier ) is 1 stop away on the BTS

Lovely infinity pool with amazing view of the Bangkok skyline open till 9 p.m and the breakfast is really fantastic

You wouldn't go wrong with it

Cheers

Naveen

I always stay in Novotel ploenchit, it’s good value, so well located right by a BTS stop and if you go for the executive floor option there is a great lounge and terrace on 29th floor with a generous free happy hour, and the pool is great too, not a lot of seating but a good refresher from the heat!

Eastin Grand hotel which connects to Surasak BTS would be my choice. Very highly rated on TA and only one BTS stop from the river pier. IMO an excellent location
