Hotel-Check: Avani Atrium Bangkok
The Avani Atrium Bangkok is a great hotel in the heart of the city. It offers really nice and comfortable western standard rooms and a great service.
When I stayed there, we arrived around 6 hours prior check in time at the hotels, not quite dressed appropriately, judge by the way other guests looked at us, but the staff was really kind. Even though our room was not ready yet, our backpacks were immediately taken care of and we were invited to the pool area where we were served some fresh fruit and a welcome drink. Just two hours later our room was already cleaned and waiting for us.
The hotel offers mutiple restaurants, we tried the Benihana, a Japanese restaurant, and the food exceeded our expectations by far! It’s definately worth a visit, because finding a good restaurant in Bangkok will take a minute. The breakfast was all you could ask for, a variety of western and Asian specialities.
On top of that the Hotel is located close to the Skytrain station, which brings you faster to the airport the airport than any taxi and they even offer a free shuttle to the station and to a shopping mall nearby.
