Plai Garden Bangkok Reviews
Convenient Airport Hotel Apr 26, 2012
We had wanted to stay at a hotel near the Suvarnabhoomi airport in Bangkok since we had to take a flight in the morning next day . Booked this hotel on booking.com due to its proximity to the airport .
The Plai Garden was situated on the main highway to Bangkok 10 minutes from the International airport . The hotel entry is pretty average so the first look is kind of discouraging . We had booked the hotel for 750 baht ( about 22 USD ) a night so thats like really cheap !!!
The hotel has a small lobby cum reception area with some sofas to sit in . They also have a pool table and internet stations in the lobby .
We got a room on the 5th floor .. the room was averagely an okay size with twin beds , a television and a small balcony opening out . The room was neat & they had thrown in some cushions & bed decor which made the room look more comfortable than a regular basic hotel room .
Attached bathroom was small but clean . The beds were comfortable but the air conditioning which was a split aircon did not really cool the room enough so it was kind of stuffy inside in the bangkok heat & humidity . The aircons were either old or in urgent need of maintenance I guess .
There was a small cafe on the ground floor with some indoor and outdoor sitting ... serving breakfast and a la carte meals .. soft drinks & beer . The cafe closes at midnight so be careful to eat something before heading back to the hotel .
The hotel has a free shuttle every hour .. 24 hours a day to the airport which was a great thing for staying here . It took just 10 minutes to get to the airport so a lot of convenience .
I would recommend you to stay their if you have to stay for a night and catch a flight next day .. otherwise it is quite a distance ( about an hour or more depending on traffic ) from the city centre with nothing to do near it .
