Due to the demonstrations we had to change our plans and this meant a change of hotel.We were originally slap bang in the middle of one of the demos at the Intercontinental but took advice from locals to move to plaza athenee.Its a lovely if slightly dated hotel.Buffet breakfast very good and right next to the BTS at Ploenchit really excellent for getting around and close enough to a lot of the shopping areas to walk if you want.
Only negative was that it was expensive,we were charged 5200 baht +taxes for a double room,seems very expensive particularly in light of the demonstrations,I would have thought closer to 4000 would have been a fairer rate but we had no time to shop around.
A very nice stay in a very nice hotel.
