On my recent stay in Bangkok Thailand, i stayed at Red Planet Surawong Hotel in the main business district Silom. It is directly next to the Amara Hotel on Surawongse Rd. Red Planet has a chain of hotels over Asia including Philippines, Japan, Indonesia and of course Thailand.
I booked this hotel with deadfarang.com and got the room for $40 AUD per night. I was very impressed of the high standards of the hotel. It is a new hotel, very modern, everything is clean. The reason i chose it was becasue it was a 600 meter walk to Patpong Night Market and i wanted to spend a bit of time down there shopping and looking around.
In reception, The have 3 apple computers for the guests to use, and also offer a printing service. The elevator is a card activated elevator so to use the elevator you must swipe your card.
The room i stayed is was there smallest. 15 sq i believe, but all i was doing was sleeping there and once your in the room the air con worked fine, you have the plasma TV on the wall if that what you want and all the channels were crystal clear. A negative was that the safe was to small for my laptop. This is no mini bar, but they do provide a keetle and coffee making materials.
Big mirrors behind the bed, there always good.
This is a non smoking hotel, being a non smoker i do like, i do appreciate and there is a 2000 baht fine for smoking in the room. I cant really fault Red Planet. If all there hotels are this high quality at this cheap price, i can guarantee i will be staying at more Red Planet hotels in Thailand and all over Asia.
It only a short tuk-tuk or taxi ride to MBK and Siam Paragon Shopping Centre, the Sale Daeng BTS is not to far away,
One night we went to Khao San Rd and the price was 60 baht in a taxi.
I did have a really good sense of felling safe in this hotel. I felt like i could go out and leave my desktop on the desk and it would be fine, due to the strong heavy doors and good locks and the duel key entry.
The shower was very big, enough room for 2, an rain shower head, lined and towels immmaculatyly clean.
