Well, as the heading says, where did you stay?

I'm after ideas for Bangkok, we probably wont be able to get to Phuket or anything, so just the city area....

Please help...

Thanks in advance!

You MUST stay at the Pathumwan Princess hotel in Bangkok! It's right on top of the MBK centre, which is a massive 7 story shopping centre (basically indoor markets) and there's a huge food court too.

The hotel is also right next to the Sky Train which takes you everywhere you need to go.

I've recommended this hotel to heaps of people and everyone has loved it!

If your budget can stretch to it I would highly recommend upgrading to an Executive Suite. Here's a link: http://www.pprincess.com/

We stayed at Siam @ Siam, LOVED it...We were going to stay at the Pathumwam Princess but our travel agent suggested Siam as it was a newer hotel but still great access for everything.

We stayed there 4 nights & had no problems at all.

We have stayed at Fraser Place. It's an expat hotel so you need to stay a week I think. Was brand new 2 years ago and a short walk to the end of the street to catch the train and only three stops from MBK.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn @ Chidlom.

It was pretty central to many shopping complexes and close to the trainline...

we stayed here, and its it was lovely! Being so close to MBK was also fantastic.

If you can get it included, i highly recommend getting their buffet breakfast daily, as its HUGE and devine! Nothing in Bangkok opens before 10am, so we ate there a few mornings and it was the best breakfast i have ever had. We generally ate so much we would skip lunch.

Also, i second getting an Exec suite. We had one, and it was lovely. Oh, and room cleaning come several times a day biggrin.gif If i were returning there, i would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Oh, and just as a note, we found the tour place in MBK (3rd floor i think, right near the hotel end) the cheapest. Same with the suit place on the 2nd floor, that is attached to a huge bag shop. Beautiful suits?

How long are you going to Bangkok for?

We stayed at the Mandarin Oriental. It was beautiful, with amazing views of the river! There is two parts to the hotel, one on either side of the river. They provide transport across the river on amazing wooden rice barges so you can visit the other restaurants.

We loved the historical aspect and great service of this hotel. The food was also fabulous!

We stayed at the Pathumwan Princess too, the hotel was nice - Our experience was less then great in Bangkok though, due to travel agent mess ups and sea legs from being on a cruise ship. I don't remember a lot about the hotel, breakfast was good and the room itself was nice - Would have enjoyed it more if we didn't have BIL and his girlfriend sleeping on a camp bed in the lounge area due to the travel agent not booking them a room!

We stayed at the Marriot (down the river) and they provided a shuttle boat to the city which took 15-20 minutes I think.
