Tips for you
I just arrived home after staying here for two weeks as a tourist. Firstly the hotel is initially difficult to find, but once you get the idea of where it is, then it's simple. The best way to find the hotel is to take the Airport Rail Link or the Skytrain to Phaya Thai station and once you get off the train, look out until you can see the tallest building in the area. A tall thin tower hotel called the Baiyoke Tower hotel. It's easy to spot as the top has an illuminated neon display, saying things like "Long live the King" on it. You want to leave the station, heading towards it and follow the road alongside the railway line in the direction of the tower. You can walk either side of the railway. One side gets a bit messy when it rains and the other side is tarmac, but you need to cross the railway. You know when a train is coming though as the crossing makes a very loud siren noise. Go through a small alleyway past an under-building car park and turn left. You will pass a few tiny street food stalls on your right and then you will see the sign for the hotel's restaurant "Millenio". Couldn't be easier. I admit it is a little complicated at first but once you have got the hang of it, the hotel couldn't be in a better location as it is so close to the station, and to the market. When you want a cab driver to take you to the hotel, most of them haven't a clue where it is, so ask for Phethburi 13, near Phaya Thai. Oh yes- a quick Bangkok survival tip: Go on a tuktuk ONCE only for the fun. Otherwise for when you wish to get around, use a meter taxi. They don't rip you off as the tuktuks do. Just make sure they switch the meter on. I checked in very late at night and had a very easy check-in. At first glance the lobby is nice and clean, but a little basic. The staff were very nice and helpful. The concierge is very nice and will take you to nearby places using the hotel's tuktuk. Don't forget to tip! Tips are not expected, but they are very welcome. The room cleaning staff are lovely too and always seemed to know when I had gone out so they did not bother me. The food in the hotel was very good. Surprisingly so, actually. They do a good continental style breakfast and some delicious eggs. If you wish to order food later, you can do, which is also very good indeed- including some Western comfort food. Try the ham and cheese toasted sandwich- one of the nicest I've ever had. The room was excellent. Nice and clean, huge shower, powerful aircon (if anything, it can be too powerful if you turn it up as I woke up with my teeth chattering once- but that was my fault for forgetting and leaving it on the coldest setting!). The rooms have a free safe, which are simple to use. I had nothing pinched so can't mark them down on the security. The bed was comfortable, if a little firm. But it was most importantly clean. Good towels. Minibar well stocked and not too expensive. The hotel supplies two bottles of water at no cost each day and leaves them in the room for you. The room has a cool plug socket which is a combined thing and allows UK plugs to be used. The only thing I can think of to mark this hotel down on, is that I found the many light-switches in the room confusing. There are loads of them and one of them was hidden behind the TV and took some searching to locate. Would I stay here again? In a heartbeat. In fact I'm already planning my return early next year to the same hotel. Those of you who want to try local bars, just near Phaya Thai station, there is a nice local bar which has live music. I didn't meet a single other foreigner in there. The people were all Thai locals and were totally lovely.
