I arrived just before midnight from overseas and my domestic connection wasn't until 2 pm the next day. Usually I would take a taxi all the way to Khao San Road area and get a cheap room there. But with the price of a taxi there (500) and a half decent room (400) and a taxi back (500), I figured I'd find a closer place. The taxi to Vaboir was 150 plus 50 airport fee. The room is 700 which included free breakfast (gross American breakfast... or I asked for and received Khao Tom, traditional Thai breakfast of rice soup) and a free cocktail from a free/cheap cocktail list. The hotel is bright, modern, clean, just down the block from 7/Eleven (isn't everything in Thailand?) and the staff is great. I was the only Falang that I saw. On the website it states free Wi/Fi in every room. When I asked for the pass code they tried to sell me minutes for about 10 seconds and then gave me the code for free. I think they used to charge for the cheaper rooms or something so just ask and don't pay. I am not worried it is far from MBK or other shopping areas. The Mall is not too far away if you really need that. But just for an overnight in this huge city, it is perfect. I'll be staying here again in 2 weeks when I have to leave Thailand for home.
