ANy suggestions on what to do, where to go for a 3 days weekend trip in bangkok, staying in Asia Hotel?
festard, i think the question is even if there was internet services at the hotel, would you pay for it?
togu - many things to do. shop at paragon, ctc, emporium. eat at chinatown. take pictures at ctc, markets, quaint colonial restaurant.
there's lots of lan and internet gaming shops around in Bangkok... 30baht per hour or something... (can't remember)... MBK got one super cosy feel lah... Bigbig armchair... ;P
I am NOT a PROfessional photographer and photography is NOT my hobby
Soi Kasemsan 1 is the side road where Reno Hotel is located.
Thanks to Astin for the picture of the hotel.
Wai was staying near to Indon lingserguan. Pecthburi Area, near to Pharnthip Plaza. Their equal of simlim sqaure.
Personally I prefer low-end to mid-end luxury hotel.
Cannot afford ultra high-end. Bangkok Peninsula Suite anyone? May cost you many thousands of $ a night.
By the way, the BKK Peninsula is NOT what the Singapore Peninsula hotel is like. It is way above that standard.
I agree with ericp. I like comfort and nice, clean, SAFE (no robbery) countries/hotels. That is why I do not like Batam.
Pay a bit more. It's your holiday. Enjoy.
I do know some nice cheap places that I like. But you may not like the neighbourhood. (not for family man with wife and kids)
But sometimes also go for my fave low-end luxury hotel.
Novotel Siam Square.
Have stayed at Pathuwan Princess too, but I like NSS more.
I do not really like MBK type of stalls for shopping.
I prefer Central Chitlom. And there is mother of all BKK shopping malls - Siam Paragon.
The younger set may like Emporium in Sukhumvit.
Have heard that Asia and First (old wing) hotels are haunted. This is not a joke.
But there are people who choose haunted hotels for the thrill.

it does not matter.
We were sharing info on BKK with other CS members and not replying specifically to the original poster.
Why the big fonts?

anyone knows how i can book rooms for RENO HOTEL?
cant find it on asia travel man
any comments on The Residence at Rajtaevee?
There's a thing to be said for boutique and interesting hotels, but they would have to come with good recommendations before I would even think about them, I'm getting softer as time goes by
Just came back, hotel not that bad, pretty comfortable stay. Skytrain accessible from the hotel, walking distance to MBK, Siam square. 7-11, massage, good makan place, lan surfing all next door. A pub directly opposite the hotel. Baht 100 to paptong.
Only glitch is that bathtub too small, and no windows in the room.
what asia and first old win is hunted? i was stayin in the first OLD WING! and my girlfriend was scared to shower cause of the sounds in the bathroom which apparently i didn't hear. hm.... i guess i'm the kinda that choose not to see or hear anything. =P
Just email them and make enquire about the room rate and booking.
used to look very old and dark a year ago, now just renovated but the price also increased from B$800 to B$950 when i was there few weeks back
BTW, the room is big and comes with mini fridge with 2 bottle of mineral water everyday. The price include breakfast buffet too, but the food menu never change after more than a year!
it used to be the cheapest around, but if asia hotel cost only B$1200 per nite, you may want to consider asia hotel instead.
