We stayed here for 3 nights in early September. The hotel is located in an ideal spot away from the city centre, but is close to Victory Monument Sky Train station, which is a 10 minute walk away.
The hotel is plush and the lobby is a work of art. The staff are helpful and always on hand if you need anything.
Our Superior room was on the 17th floor and gave us great views of the city. The room was a good size, with a tiled bathroom satellite Tv and mini bar. The bed was a little on the firm side, but was a good size, so if you stirred, you won't wake up your partner!
Breakfast was plentiful buffet style set-up and was included in the booking. It caters for all tastes, so you won't go hungry.
Get the Sky Train when travelling round the city. It's about £3.00 for a day pass and only has 2 lines. The trains run frequently, are clean, quiet and safe. Avoid any Tuk Tuk drivers or Taxis that won't switch the meter on. A lot of the time, they will try and take you to jewellery shops as they are on commission.
Shopping in Bangkok is sublime. Siam Paragon is the most expensive and sells designer clothes, jewelry and top of the range cars. Siam Centre is middle of the road (Trafford Centre) and more affordable. Finally, if you like designer clothing at knock bottom prices such as R Marney, Lacost, Kartier, MBK is the place to go. Some of the clothing is obviously dodgy, but as the places is 6 floors of Market stalls, you'll have plenty of choice and places to check out.
As we only had 3 nights, we took a tour of the Palace, the 100foot Buddha and the gold Buddha. Highly recommended.
Finally, look on Trip Advisor for restaurants as some vary. We ate out every night and had no issues at all, although the Thai Curries at HOT! Be warned.
Bangkok is a lively and vibrant city and we loved it. I hope you do too
