    Hi. I'm a newbie to travelling abroad. Most of the places I went to are within my country. It's gonna be my first time to travel to Bangkok and I was wondering if any of you have any suggestions on accommodation. What is your all-time favorite hotel in Bangkok and why? Hope you can help me.

    No advice on BKK, but just wanted to say welcome to MP. You'll find lots of help, regardless of the topic!

    I think the best thing you can do; is find a hotel somewhere near a bTS/MRT station. With that you should be able to get most places without worry.

    This is a really broad question - hotels run from a few dollars to many hundreds! What makes one hotel great for one person is horrible for another.
    Checking the thread above and maybe asking a more specific question in that thread is likely to get you much more useful help.

    Having stayed at everything from the Peninsula to the Holiday Inn just off Central World Plaza I have to say my favorite hotel in BKK is the Anantara Riverside Resort along the river. It became my fave when it was the Marriott Riverside Resort but was reflagged late last year but I like it so much that I might risk no hotel loyalty points just to return. Amid the hustle and bustle, a lot of calm and the pool was always peaceful. Buffet's abound so plenty to eat and choice of foods. Timely boat transportation is always a hit and drops you off at a MRT station so quite easy to catch public transportation especially if you want river transportation to various temples. Anyway, it's my personal choice in BKK and friends staying there since reflagging say it is still the best, that service remains extremely high. Quite affordable and they have suites.

    I've traveled there pretty frequently over the years. Whats your budget? Hoping to stay on points? What about age range? Are you a young & looking to party or in need of a quiet retreat?

    Give us some more details.

    Hi! Thank you all for the very warm welcome. I really appreciate it. The trip is with my husband. It is also our first trip together abroad. Cheap to mid-range accommodation is fine. We'd like to allot more of our budget to sight-seeing and shopping. Somewhere quiet would also be nice. My husband and I are both 26 years old. A friend of mine recommended Sukosol. Have you heard of it? Do they have nice service? It is quite expensive so I would like to know if it is worth the price. Thank you all again.
