June 09, 2021

Being one of Thailand’s most popular travel destinations, Bangkok offers tourists plenty of accommodation options to choose from. But how would you pick one? Do read on to know about 5 things you should consider when booking your accommodation here in Bangkok.

Pick a hotel that is located close to an MRT

Bangkok’s streets are notoriously congested and getting around is truly a difficult task if you rely on the roads. Thanks to the rapidly developing municipality, the city now features a fully-fledged underground railway transit locally known as the MRT and another rail network called the Skytrain (BTS). This brings a whole new dynamic for traversing around the city makes your life in Bangkok much easier. Our hotel establishment is located just a stroll away from an MRT station as well as the BTS Skytrain hence your stay at Pathumwan Princess Hotel will certainly be convenient and advantageous.

Choose a centrally located accommodation option

Choosing a family suite in Bangkok at a centrally located hotel goes a long way in your Bangkok exploration experience! This provides you with easy access to the city’s popular attractions and it saves you a lot of money that you would generally spend on transport. If you are visiting Bangkok with your children, always make sure that you choose a family-friendly hotel establishment by reading reviews and research. Also, it is better if your hotel is in proximity to an MRT or BTS.

No tipping

Like many Asian countries, Tipping in Thailand is not a regular practice. Most of the restaurants and hotels include this as service charges. But if you still wish to make someone’s day a tip of 15-20 Baht would be enough.

Look out for promotions and special offers

Renowned hotel establishments the likes of Pathumwan Princess Hotel, always have exclusive offers and promotions up for grabs. If you are planning to save a little extra cash or if you wish to indulge in some exclusive privileges, be sure to check the hotel website before you check-in. Some of these offers are exclusive for prebooking hence start checking for offers even before you arrive.

Don’t miss out on street food

Although hotels in Thailand offer you exclusive dining opportunities and decadent food items, you should not constrict yourself to only that. The street food in Thailand has quite a following and could indeed be a treat for your tastebuds. Check out something new occasionally and add a little bit of flavour to your travel experience.

Pro Tip: if you are finding it difficult to pick a stall, choose one that attracts a lot of local crowds. This way you’d know the food served there is fresh and will be delicious.
