Recommended Hotels by City

Bangkok - Sukhumvit Area

Location

Ave Rate

Note: Unlike the US, streets are NOT symmetrical.  Soi 10 could be across from Soi 18, and they are not spaced evenly as well.  So CHECK THE MAP!!!  Don't rely on the Street (Soi) #

Note:  December is considered HIGH Season so many hotels book early.  The sooner you lock in a room the better.  Otherwise you may find that your hotel of choice SOLD OUT!

Silom  is by  the Chao Phraya River  so  many of the VERY expensive hotels (i.e., Peninsula, Mandarin Oriental, Shangri-La,

etc.) are located here.  The views are spectacular and so is the view from the Top of Labua at the State Tower Building, where the Hangover 2 helicopter scene was shot.

Note:  Phuket is a BIG resort area for Foreign Tourists, hence it is more expensive than almost any other location in Thailand.  So while it costs more, you may find that hotels in Bangkok, while less expensive, are actually nicer.  Taxis, Food, etc all cost more in Phuket.

Hint:  While there are a lot of travel companies out there (websites & Apps), I have found the best one to be Expedia - IPAD version.  It shows the locations of all hotels on the map while listing everything about them, prices, pictures, descriptions, reviews, etc.  A  very cool "App" to download to your mobile device.  However, when booking airfare, rates will vary amongst sites to be sure to check all of them for the best rates as they change often.

These are my choices for inexpensive (some expensive) excellent hotels.  There is no need to spend $300 and up on for a 5 star hotel. These are 3 & 4 star hotels with great locations, facilities, and everything nearby.  However, please feel free to check into any hotel that you like.
