    A lovely hotel that I have stayed in a couple of times. Not sure how close it is to the embassy though.

    stayed at all of these and would stay at any of them again. Most in Sukhumvit but not sure exactly how far from the embassy, cant be too far away though:-

    http://www.legacybangkok.com/
    http://www.furamaxclusive.com/sukhumvit/
    http://www.majesticgrande.com/
    http://www.thedawin.com/
    http://www.pullmanbangkokkingpower.com/

    From the above list for value for money my favourite would be Legacy Suites, if budget isnt an issue I would go for the Pullman again

    Regards
    Steve

    I stayed at the Legacy Express for one night last August, it had just opened (stones throw from Embassy). Clean and comfortable but a bit overpriced for what you get, about 1500 baht p/n. But always a bit more expensive that close to the centre of BKK.

    Hi Allan

    If you're submitting a visa application, would you be better off staying near the VFS in Bangkok rather than the British Embassy?

    Regards

    Very well spotted Paul - yes I am. I thought they were at the same location but from what you say, obviously not. D'oh!

    VFS is in Regent House, Ratchadamri Road, Lumpini.

    There's a limited selection of hotels in the area, but it's a very short walk from here:

    Ratchadamri BTS Station (Exit 2) - Regent House is shown on the far left of the map.

    Find any hotel near a BTS station and you're laughing.

    When asking for hotel recommendations, it's also a good idea to let people know what your price range is. No point recommending the Grand Hyatt Erawan or Four Seasons Hotel (both very near Regent House) if your budget is ฿2000 a night.

    I don't like this hotel, particularly for the price, as it has seen better days. It needs a good makeover.

    You will certainly be upgraded but it is just to a bigger room.

    It also has a bridge that spans the main road to the airport. When I stayed there last August it wasn't open and had to take a cab.

    I won't be staying there again.

    Why don't you stay in a IBIS HOTEL ( Victoria Monument area ) The price is about 1,300 per night and a taxi ride to the airport is only 30 minutes away.....

    Victoria monument

    I know their buying football teams and some of the steel industry buy taking our statues is not on
    Judging others before you have met isn't a wise option.

    lamai, to what ian 1208 is alluding is that it is not Victoria Monument, it is the Victory Monument. I only say this as Wolfy might not be aware of it. Its a bit too close to Khao San Road for my liking.

    Dave,
