Surely not again?!! Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel

Posted by Sparts on 19/3/2014 at 12:14

Good afternoon everyone. I realise this question has been asked a dozen times, but not for a while now. I don't see any harm in me posting this again as the other threads look a little out of date or haven't been aded to in a while.

So,...we arrive into Suvarnabhumi Airport around 1pm for an overnight stay. Out flight is at 9am the following day. As we'll be travelling with a toddler we probably don't need the hassle of travelling into the city for only one night.
So then, airport hotel recommendations please. Novotel and Best Western appear to be the most obvious. Does anyone know of any others of a similar standard VERY nearby?
Novotel is obviously righht in the airport and Best Western have a regular bus service straight to the door.
Or do you have any horror stories from these two?

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks again in advance.

I stayed in a much cheaper place, Grand Pinnacle. Was close to the airport, had good clean room with hot water, air conditioning and tv. Book on agoda and their rates are good, $15-25 depending on room/airport pickup service($50 if you book on their website though so don't do that).

They offer breakfast in the morning, will shuttle you to airport and there are a couple good restaurants near by(1st place to the west is a little nicer and really good food), local joint across the road is good too but not much English spoken.

Unlikely to have horror stories at good hotels. If u are hanging around the hotel.i would get one with a pool.

I do not know either of the two hotels but for ease I would go to the Novotel - right on the doorstep and then if you want to venture into Bangkok for a bit of exploraration / shopping then you have easy access to the sky train
