I ran into a great problem: the airline cannot give me a good connection, so I get to send 1.5 day in BKK. Wish all problems were like this. I have been to BKK twice, 2-3 days each time. Both times I stayed in Skhumvit. First time Westin Grand (with points), second time Royal Asia Lodge (my own cash). So I am not an expert but familiar enough to manage on my own if I had to. That said, everyone can benefit from expert advice and tips, so here I am. Basically, I am wondering if should stick to Sukhumvit, or try something else for a change? I'll arrive at 10AM, leave at 5PM next day, no worries about time. I don't expect or even want to do very much in one day, just want to be in or close to an interesting area, good food, cheap clean massage if such a thing exists. I have Radisson and SPG points In Sukhumvit, I can afford Park Plaza Soi 18 (Radisson) or Four Points Sheraton. Along the river, Royal Orchid Sheraton. I can always do some $50 hotel on my own cash. Just has to be clean, safe, working air-conditioning. Any particular advice or outstanding recommendation? Finally a more general question. Which booking site or review site most trustworthy for hotel reviews?
