Had to stopover in Bangkok on the way to Bhutan and back from Bhutan. We did not want to have the hassle or to chance a journey into and out of the city, so a hotel near the airport was the only way.
It just so happened that the Accor hotels was offering a 'sale' and the Airport Novotel was the choice. It is as near to the airport as you can get.
Upon arrival, go to exit gate no. 4 and there is a counter just beside the entrance (inside the airport). The hotel operates a shuttle service. We have made use of it many times and there is always a shuttle van all the time. They ferried us back to the hotel (which was a 3 minute ride) and the check in was quick. We had a child below 16 and an extra bed was offered for free. Up came our baggage and within 5 minutes of our entereing the room, the extra bed arrived.
The setting is beautiful and everything is new. Like a previous poster said, and I agree, it could well have been in the category of a Sofitel. Although we were only there on transit, it felt like a holiday destination already. You won't be able to tell that you are actually in the vicinity of a major airport. The shuttle drivers know exactly where to send (the gate) you to check in for your flight.
And, if you do not wish to eat at the hotel, you can always hop onto the shuttle and go back to the airport which has a array of food outlets, including the local food court at the end of the airport terminal building (below check-in row W) on the lower bround floor.
I suppose because it is an airport hotel and most people have a schedule to keep, everything here is clockwork. We liked it. It could not have been any better.
