A few hours' sleep at the airport?


We are flying to Sydney in July with a stopover in Bangkok. The drawback is that we fly into Bangkok at about 6am, and the onward flight to Sydney does not depart until about 6pm. Rather than hanging around the airport for 12 hours with nothing to do, we would be interested in getting our heads down for a few hours. Can anyone recommend any convenient airport hotels which would allow us to do this, without having to pay for two nights’ accommodation?

Many thanks in anticipation of your assistance.

In the airport, both Louis Tavern and the Novotel have day rooms. Suggest a google to get the rather expensive rates.

Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel,I highly recommend this hotel for a stopover.I stayed here one night on my way from Italy to Sydney,and enjoyed every minute. I was exhausted when I arrived, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. My room was fine, huge bed, large bathroom and very quiet. The breakfast buffes was the best I have ever had in a hotel anywhere. Although expensive, it is worth every penny for the weary traveller.

If you or your partner are from Cyprus you will need to get a Visa on arrival before you can leave the airport and you may also have to pay the airport tax again as you leave.

With a 12 hour layover there are a few questions.

Are you with the same airline

Is your luggage checked through to Aus?

I would suggest if your luggage is checked through then you use Louis Tavern, which is airside.

Louis latest rates seen are


4 1 THB 2,200 THB 2,000

4 2 THB 2,400 THB 2,200

4 3 THB 3,500 THB 2,900

6 1 THB 3,200 THB 2,900

6 2 THB 3,400 THB 3,100

6 3 THB 4,950 THB 4,050

8 1 THB 4,200 THB 3,800

8 2 THB 4,400 THB 4,000

8 3 THB 6,400 THB 5,200

Hope this helps you.
