Bangkok’s International Airport Suvarnabhumi (what a weird name!) is located to the east of the city and is considered to be one of the largest airports in the south-western Asia. Suvarnabhumi was built in 2006, and since then it is constantly upgraded; honestly, it can definitely compete with the major European airports in terms of services. The official site says that like the rest of Thailand Suvarnabhumi is an airport of thousands of smiles. However, seasoned travelers say this is not about local customs officials. So do not rush to judge Thailand by airport workers – after all they have a stressful job.
As for the accommodation options, surprisingly enough, the airport area is not oozing with zillions of places. However, there is no doubt you will be able to pick up a decent room in the price range you are looking for without virtually no problems. You will hardly face a booked out problem, neither you will run out of budget or premium options. Many of the near-by hotels offer free transfers, modern sound insulation, free wifi and dozens of other nifty features that make your travel more pleasant.
I’m now working in Shanghai and I’m travelling across Asia (South-Eastern part to be more exact) almost 100 days a year, so believe me I’m quite familiar with the local hospitality cuisine. Thus, I believe that my top5 selection will help you make the right choice (first-timers, this is the stuff for you). From budget spots to way above average options, I’ve tried to pick up the most noteworthy hotels in their categories. So let’s roll.
