First time / nights in Bangkok, hotel recs.. honeymoon!
I am having a lot of trouble booking the first 3 nights of our honeymoon. We land in Bangkok at midnight after a looooong flight from the US on September 5 and are staying until the morning of the 8th to fly to surat thani/ samui / phangan.
I can't find a hotel that seems swish enough for the first few nights of a honeymoon, that will be comfortable and relaxing enough after that long flight, but that will offer good personal / friendly service and advice to us as newbies to Bangkok. We want to be close to the sights as we aren't there for too long, but not on KSR.
I've seen some places in the area called "Riverside" but they are getting pretty expensive. Actually all the really nice looking places cost > $100.
I'd say I don't want to spend more than $80 or $90 a night. I'm guessing 50-90 range should do it. Since we get in so late on our first night we don't have the luxury of 'shopping around', nor would I want to.
I did notice a fairly new hotel along Phra Arthit (a short walk from KSR, but nicer), but I can't remember the name. Check out places on that road and you might come across something nice.
If you go to www.wotif.com then there are many good deals available, at good discounts... (up to 3 weeks before you go)
You can choose which country you want and all sorts of great options we used it a lot for our last trip.
If you want a fabuolous beach option for the honeymoon, we had our wedding at La Flora Resort and Spa at Khao Lak (north of Phuket) - it was amazing, I can't say enough great things about them... they treated us like family and it was really special...
Have a great honeymoon :-) Bangkok is amazing but can be a bit of a shock when you come there the first time. But I hope that you will have a great stay in Thailand. My wife and I went to Bangkok and Samui last year (see my trip report on http://gardkarlsen.com/Bangkok_trip_report_2007.htm ) and we had great fun :-)
