There is a call center, so there are several places where you can get installed. I was in Silom, which is a tourist area which has access to BTS (metro). In Silom where this is known to Patpong street (where the fake bags and clothes look on the street and where there is prostitution).
I think it is a good area because you can easily take BTS or boat and move you in Bangkok.
The hotel was formerly the name of Single Silom, located just in front of the Sofitel Silom.
The travel between the airport and the hotel was done by train and BTS, is one cost about 120 BTH by people (plus the final taxi from the station to the hotel, 100 tbh) and takes about 40 minutes until the final season. The nearest station to the hotel is 5 minutes walk and is called Chong Nonsi. The displacement can also be done by taxi (taxi meter only, or with a meter) and usually costs about 400 BTH and takes about 35 minutes with little traffic or even one hour with great traffic.
In my case it paid off to go to BTS, because he had large suitcases and not all had a lift station.
Location: is good, near the BTS, near the Sofitel (some taxi driver did not know where is the hotel and is easier to give reference of the Sofitel). A 10-minute walk from Patpong.
Tip: for those who need to change money, I advise the bureau which is located outside the station BTS Chong Nonsi towards the hotel before the shopping plaza. Or for those who leave the hotel, turn right, follow straight on, pass the mall, and is the first major road turn right towards the BTS (Chong Nonsi) and walk another 200 meters and see to your right a house exchange. Despite not having very good looking, is the one that has a better exchange.
Rooms: I was an executive room on the 18th floor, with fairly large areas with a beautiful decoration, such as mini-bar and also had an lcd.
Price: it has a very good price for the quality it presents. It is a typical 4 stars
Facilities: Always clean and safe. It has a swimming pool on top of the hotel. It has a gym and sauna. There's free internet.
Tip: There is free internet in some cafes and restaurants in the vicinity.
Food: The breakfast is reasonable. Other meals can be made on the street or in any restaurant, but close by there is no special restaurant.
Animation: non-existent at the hotel. Outside the hotel there are some bars. Patpong is located about 10 minutes walk from the hotel, where every night there is a market with forged material (watches, clothes and bags) and of course the famous bars of ping pong ....
Travel: they set off on foot (if close) to tuck-tuck (the prices are very expensive) or taxi (prices are also expensive) or BTS boat. I advise the BTS and it is for the old town the boat. Because the tuck-tuck seems cheaper but they will always take you before you want to visit the local shops .... Or will take longer. Just taking a taxi cab in which they put the meter and meter to count the least deceived beings.
Tip: There is a daily BTS card, which costs 120 BTH, but only worth it to carry a lot of traveling. The average price of the trip is 30 BTH. Through the BTS you can not reach the old town, only to China Town
Most shopping centers are located in Siam. Here there are shops for all the bags until they can buy a Maserati or a lamborgini .... However, for those who have less money and are interested in buying the counterfeit material advise MBK (last exit of BTS - National Stadium). It is a 6-storey shopping mall, where you buy the iphone from bags, shorts, t-shirts. (I advise not to buy iphone and iphone because they are fake, not waste time. ... (3rd floor - technologies) Only the box is the same and the cover) Despite being a commercial center can haggle the price.
If you do not want to go to the mall, there is also a Silom night market in Patpong, there are people selling plastic bags, watches and some clothes (you can choose from a catalog). Prices vary depending on the quality of the forgery.
For those who have too much time in Bangkok, I advise you to go visit the largest Asian market - Chatuchak market which only operates on weekends from 10:00 to 17:00 and has about 15 000 stands, where everything is sold. The movement can be made there by bus, or BTS station (Mo Chi). The market is much confusion even with a map. You lose at least 4 hours to try to see a large market share.
Excursions: There are many options for every price range. The main ones are the floating market, Ayuthaya and temples (wut). Everywhere there are shops that deny the various tours. The low price also if you buy more than one.
Places to visit: The urge to spend the night Bayoke Sky Hotel. You can have dinner or just a drink on the floor 84 floor. To take just one cup has a cost of 250 BTH per person. (entrance with a drink)
In Bangkok there Wut different for everyone.
For staying in Silom, should not lose track of the river by boat to the old town, especially to the royal palace. When buying the boat ticket, they have two mode, but only disclose the daily ticket that has a cost of 150bth. It may not seem like much, but in reality is because, one trip only costs 30 BTH and were difficult to for more than two and at most 4. Just the ticket for only one boat trip, you wind up buying the boat and not on the ticket. To cross the border costs 6 BTH (if you buy a ticket everyday, this boat is not included, though they say everything is included)
When you reach the royal palace near the entrance, as though there are several doors, one is only for tourists, people will appear to say that the palace is closed to take you to another side. Do not go. The palace is open from 8:00 until 15:30, I think. The price to enter is BTH 400 per person.
Besides the palace that the Buddha lying BTH that pays 50 per person to cross the border and the other laughed this Wat (beautiful palace that pays 50 BTH). Then there are many more Wat to visit ....
I advise you also wish to visit the floating market, across the street from shops Vedema tours there. The price varies (200-250 BTH, but is the same), the only lead you to a nearby village, then you have to buy a ticket to go there by boat 300bth that costs more per person.
Who also want to go see the Ayuthaya (ancient capital of Thailand), but if the tour has already needs another day, because the floating market and Ayuthaya are only in the morning, then has to be different days. This tour costs an average 600bth already lunch (bus trip to and from the boat).
Plane ride back to 00:30 held by Swiss Air. The plane was very recent. House seat had a TV with several lines in numerous films and also had individual and collective games you could play against other people on the plane.
We chose this flight because we managed to get home the same day without having to spend the night at an airport in Europe
