As a travel agent, I am familiar with the Park Plaza Hotels in the UK and have stayed at a number of them which are excellent. For my first visit to Thailand, I decided to try the Park Plaza in Bangkok and chose the newest hotel Park Plaza Soi 18. I wasn't disappointed! What a fantastic find this hotel was. It is located in a quiet street just off the main Sukhumvit Road which is the commercial centre with plenty of shopping/restaurants and nightlife. A short five minute walk takes you there with easy access to the excellent Skytrain around Bangkok. Check in was fast, efficient and friendly with a cold welcome drink after our long flight from London. Our room was large, clean and well furnished. Beds are very clean and very comfortable. The view from our room was not great as the hotel is a city hotel amongst many taller buildings adjacent. However, our stay in Bangkok was NOT to be spent in our hotel bedroom! So it was perfectly fine for our visit of 3nts. There is a roof-top pool and restaurant which is gorgeous in the evenings as it is surrounded by trees and twinkling blue lights. Meals AND drinks are half price during their long Happy Hour from 6-9pm. It is fantastic value for money. Food at the hotel was excellent with a great buffet breakfast. There is a small terrace off the main restaurant which was lovely to enjoy our coffee after breakfast each morning. We could sit and people-watch as everyday life went on below us. The reception staff and the concierges could not have been more helpful. They gave us great advice concerning sight-seeing and information regarding taxis and tut-tuts. We were told to be careful of these as they can sometimes dupe the unsuspecting tourist so make sure you agree prices BEFORE you get in the cab/tut-tut. We decided to use the public transport which is brilliant and very easy. Our concierge advised about a 1 day ticket which cost around THB180 - approx £3.50. In summing up - I would DEFINITELY stay at the Park Plaza Soi 18 again on my next visit to Bangkok. This was a brilliant little gem in the heart of the city!!
