    There is a Novotel right there on the airport grounds but you will pay dearly for it. You might take a look at the following web site which has tons of hotels near the airport. agoda.com I have stayed at the Best Western near the airport it was great. beautiful room, restaurant etc, but it's not near anything, great for an airport stopover. Complimentary shuttle from and to the airport, ride takes about 15 minutes.

    I stayed at the Novotel BKK and I gotta say that although it is convenient, I wish I had stayed somewhere else. The rooms were a bit on the drab side and I paid over 150 usd just for the day rate.

    It is really the convenience that makes the Novotel worthwhile- I do agree it is far from the most exciting property in Bangkok.

    I would also suggest taking the yellow express line train into town and staying at a nearby hotel even for a short visit (there is for example a new Holiday Inn right there IIRC).

    I didn't know about the HI! I'll keep it mind the next time I have a long layover in BKK. Thanks for the tip

    We like the Novotel Suvarnabhumi BKK, a great property after or before our flights. :) We had only good experiences with the property so far and would not hesitate to stay at the Novotel again in the future. Large rooms, gorgeous pool, big atrium, restaurants and Thai garden too.

    Thanks for the Holiday Inn info.

    The Novotel is not value for money IMO It is a souless, expensive hotel and you still need to take a shuttle to get there and back.

    I much prefer to choose a hotel on agoda (or similar) for 1/6 the cost (granted it is not so grand) and spend the money elsewhere.
