I have selected the Bossotel Bankok after reading numerous reviews of other hotels and I was really satisfied with my choice.
It is located near Silom Road: 2 steps away from the famous Sky Bar of Lebeua Hotel and the no less famous Shangri La Hotel.
Just 5 minutes away from Bossotel, there is a stop of the Chao Praya Express – a tourist boat that allows you to reach all of the city’s most interesting areas in a very short time. This is an excellent solution in order to avoid the traffic. Also the Skytrain is there waiting for you.
I stayed with another couple of friends, for 3 nights in a Deluxe Room (€ 47.00 per room, per night with breakfast included). The room was quite large, clean and recently renovated with a large and functional bathroom with bath tub and shower.
At turndown service they always leave 2 complimentary bottles of water and in addition, there is the kettle with all that you would need to prepare a tea or coffee.
I suggest you to ask for a room overlooking the street, as the other leads onto an internal courtyard. The road at night is not particularly noisy so you can sleep easily.
Breakfast is plentiful and varied.
The hotel has a spa which is accessible also from the street or from the 2nd floor of the hotel. The 1 hour massage is only for 7.00 Euros! You should to do it every day after a long day of sightseeing!
By a local taxi you can easily reach both touristic and shopping areas (MBK Shopping Centre, Siam Paragon). And it only costs around 1 or 2 Euros. Always ask to turn the taxi meter on in order to avoid bad surprises! Or you can also choose a tuk tuk which is a little more expensive but always a haggle and it’s more daring. Try it at least once to say that you did it!
The hotel is also less than 1km far from the Patpong night market area. Here you can spend a night enjoing the restaurants, stalls and night clubs. But be carful: do not let yourself be fooled! They will entice you by telling you that you only have to pay 1 drink – at 5.00 Euros, and then the show you a bill for 100.00 Euros!!! (of course we left our 5 Euro and then we had to run!).
Bossotel Bankok’s staff is friendly and polite but speak very little English. Overall a great value – for the price plus location.
