Royal Bee Aparthotel
A lot of people are new to the idea of the aparthotel, but they are becoming increasingly common. They are what the term seems to suggest - a combination of hotel and an apartment. You can book and stay in the way you would a hotel, or you can arrange to live there long-term and be charged at lower rates.
I chose the for an overnight stay, after arriving on an international flight at the nearby Don Mueang airport in Bangkok.
The has the usual facilities you would expect - a bathroom, wardrobe, bed, televison and a refrigerator. Bottled water is also provided.
However, you don't get a kettle, so that can be a drawback. There is a 7-eleven directly opposite the aparthotel so this helps make up for the lack of kettle as you can get instant coffees there. Also handy for picking up frozen meals (they do heat it up for you), snacks and toiletries.
It is hard to find completely quiet places to stay in Bangkok, in light of the bustling and busy place it is. Yet I had no complaints at the .
There is also a very small balcony, but it is not big enough to make it practical. And like most places within Bangkok, there isn't much of a view.
On the same note, the room that I booked had a window. This is great, because it let in natural light and a breeze. Windows in hotels is not a given in Thailand, so this is a definite point in this place's favour.
The bathroom has a wide mirror, sink and a shower stall with shower curtain. Towels are provided.
Check-in was simple, as was check-out, and the receptionist was happy to arrange a taxi for me on the spot. A deposit of 500 baht is required at check-in, but this is refunded to you when you return your key.
As far as proximity to Don Mueang Airport goes, this hotel is close. There are no hotels in the immediate vicinity of the airport (except one), and each requires you to take a taxi to get to it.
The is an affordable drive of around 20 minutes by taxi from the airport.
