Having checked out of the Ramada my partner was suddenly called away to a meeting at her Thai Insurance company, and unexpectedly becalmed in Bkk I headed for my 'standby' hotel, the PJ. Paying the not inconsiderable 'walk in rate' I insisted on a front room with a decent bed. I won't reveal the room number as it will be heavily subscribed if I do, but the bed was great, air noisy but effective, bathroom functional (without the tiny moths) & a view of the Baiyoke Tower with a colossal BMW advert trying unsuccessfully to persuade me of something or other about their rather creasy designs. The star of the show is the wonderful Mai Tai in the bar (b.o.g.o.f, happy hour is curiously 6pm to 8pm) followed by two Rusty Nails (bar complete with live band) that could stop a horse. Great. Breakfast is good, with both asian and western choices, so my usual cheese & tomato omelette worked well. I enjoyed my 'one nighter' with the only slight downside being an unusually brusque reception on arrival. Anyone for charm school?
