vix has indicated that this thread is about Thailand


Has anyone stayed in any of the following?

Woodlands Inn Hotel
Bangkok Rama Place
New Empire Hotel

And does anyone know where the second one is in bangkok??
My friend and I are hoping to find somewhere to book for the beginning of our stay in thailand, late december/early january.

Any help would be great!
thanks, vix

Hey Vix, I don´t know where these hotels are. But when I went there I stayed in a hotel in the Chinatown...the hotel was very good (4 stars) and also very cheap. I don´t remember the exatc name of it, but I´ll try to check for you. (maybe Princess...I don´t know...)
Well, the chinatown is not the most turistic area, as in Silom Road, but you surely will have contact with their culture more than anywhere else, and it´s right next to the river and to the Palaces...

Hi Vix,

Is it Bangkok Rama Place where you are looking for..the second one that you

This link is for Woodlands Inn

New Empire

Honestly..this is my first time hearing of these hotels...ha ha ha. I work with most
hotel but not hostel so I might not able to give more infromation except the link.:

The Place where Michelle suggest is Grand China Princess. This hotel is 4 star and
seems to be the best in China Town.

Hmm...wouldn't you spend some times in Khao San Road? Viengtai hotel or so..

Any more question , do let me know.

just wanted to say thanks for the replies...done a bit more research now and think we are going to try and book a room at the viengtai or royal hotel. the grand china princess does look good, as do the others but I think we would rather be in Banglamphu for our stay.

cheers again, vix.

Hi Vix

Glad you got accom sorted. I too have been trying to work out which hotels will be best for my arrival in bk. Can I ask which area you think is best in terms of getting from the airport to the hotel upon arrival and also getting to see the main attractions of the city. I would appreciate any advises.

For hotel near airport, you may book asia airport or comfort suites..both offer free shuttle. After you had recover after a long haul flighgt, you then can take bus or other mean of transportation into the city. Train is quite cheap from airport to town...around baht 50/person/way.

Hi mr fogg!

We opted for the asia hotel in the end! STA organised it for us. Its cool because its near all the attractions and the sky train stops at the hotel! Its got a roof top swimming pool too, which sounds good to me! Its costing us £44 each for four nights but then compaired to the uk (where you'd get the same sort of accom for about 4 times that!) its pretty good!
