We used Bangkok for stop overs during our vacation in Asia. The first two evenings of our journey was spent in the Baiyoke Sky hotel.
Public Transport - Taxi from Suvarnabhumi airport 450 baht including toll. Taxi to Don Mueang International airport 350 baht including toll. Avoid tuk tuk's, as they tend to scam travelers, and when using a taxi, ensure that you ask them to put the meter on (which by law should happen, but as expected some do not abide by this). From Baiyoke to Ko San road per taxi 76 baht.
Room - We booked into the 74th floor, which was extremely cheap and had an amazing view. Large room, with a mini bar, television and air conditioning. We received a welcome pack of chocolate, which had my husbands name on - small details we appreciated. In the evening a card was placed on our bed with the weather forecast for the following day. 'Breakfast in bed' was on time and reasonable, cost 780 baht.
Staff - From the concierge, lobby staff, assistants and cleaning staff - all were extremely friendly and ready to assist at any point.
There are various large department/wholesale stores around the hotel with an abundance of local shops. The Baiyoke has a 360 degree view point on the top floor with a bar just below, it's stunning and exceptionally fun during the evenings.
Bangkok Tips - As mentioned above, refrain from using tuk tuk's as your mode of transportation. We asked to go to the night market and in the end taken to a different market and charged more to get to the original market requested. Note that when using the taxi's t Treat the people with respect and you will receive the same in return. Taxi - Travelling to and from both airports, toll charges apply (60 baht). Try the Sang Som (Thai rum) with coke and street food (unless you have a few rats in the vicinity). Take a walk from Baiyoke to Ko San road, you will see much more and grow a deeper understanding of the people and culture.
