I too was on a stopover in Bangkok and wanted to book something near the airport. I was very pleased with the Vismaya. It was a little tricky to find the transport at the airport and a short wait was involved; the drive to the hotel was about 15-20 minutes (thanks to no traffic at that hour).
The hotel was a very pleasant surprise. It was extremely reasonably priced. The room was attractive and comfortable, with a fine bed and linens -- and a glorious bathtub in a well-appointed bathroom. The room was cool and modern, with cement block floors, and with an attractive minimalist Asian design. There was a glass wall between the bedroom and the bath, which might not suit some people sharing a room, but as a solo traveler I had no problem. There was a lovely pool outside, and I enjoyed the breakfast that came with the room, a combination of Thai and Western selections.
There was a charge for the shuttles to the airport, but it was very reasonable. The neighborhood is not one that a person would choose for tourism -- it ranges from rustic to grim. But the hotel enclave was a pleasant oasis in itself, and a welcome respite from a long-haul flight.

Indeed, guests are certain to experience the very same when visiting a hotel of such grace and tranquility a mere five minutes from Thailand’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport.The low-rise, resolutely modern setting encompasses 67 well-appointed and technologically advanced rooms comprising 63 Deluxe, three Executive Suites and one Signature Suite accommodation types. Guests likewise enjoy a courtyard with swimming pool and garden area; food and drink venues including poolside terrace dining for Thai and international dishes; as well as a lobby bar serving not only cocktails but also fine teas and coffees along with gourmet bakery.Located in a quiet side street off Kingkaew Road, the hotel lies outside the main flight path of Suvarnabhumi yet nonetheless allows the convenience of stepping from a plane to stylish accommodation in far less time than would be required if one were staying in central Bangkok. Further adding to such convenience, Vismaya operates its own airport shuttle service providing transport to and from the airport.
