I chose to stay with the Floral Shire as a few friends had stayed here before. I think that it must be under new management as I feel that I didn't receive the quality that my friends has previously received.
I booked my room through Agoda so the rooms were cheaper than their advised internet prices.
The communication between the management and my self regarding my booking and pick up were very efficient. Replies with in 6hrs!!!
The pick up service was brilliant, a "meet and greet" staff at the airport, an a/c mini van and a relatively good driver (compared with others I've used in BK).
The room was a little dull... I was expecting something similar to what I'd seen advertised, the TV wasn't working and the room was on below the ground floor, a basement!!! I didn't bother to tell the staff about the TV as I was very tired and their free wifi was enough to entertain me. Although I did sleep very well compared to the people I had breakfast with. They heard the planes going by all night... we were only 5 mins from the airport!
For a night stopover it is worth the £10. Compared to the other big named hotels where you would pay a lot more for services you wouldn't really use.
The room was clean with crisp white sheets and a lovely hot shower.
My transfer back to the airport was free if I wanted one but they only leave on the hr and I wanted to leave 30min past so they arranged a private one 100bht!!
Don't be fooled by the advertised room, it is a basic stopover hotel, no wondering around town to see the sites of BK, you'll need to book somewhere near the center for that. No pool or bar, but if your landing and night and flying onwards the next day and want a comfy clean bed and feel safe if your a female on your own then here is the place to be.
