Regency Park Hotel, Sukhumvit 22, Bangkok

Regency Park Hotel, Sukhumvit 22, Bangkok

Located almost on the top corner of Soi 22 of Sukhumvit, very near Washington Square and in walking distance to the Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain station.
This is an excellent location indeed! It's one of the first hotels in Bangkok I stayed in once I started living on Samui and I have been coming back over time, due to it's great location.

The Emporium Shopping Mall and the Benjasiri park are also within walking distance and especially the park is very nice and a relief in the fast paced city life of Bangkok. It's also near the Queen Sirikit convention center.

Although the rooms don't have windows, the hotel offers a nice indoors garden as an alternative and all rooms have all the necessary amenities. One tip before booking, make sure that breakfast is included since that's not included in their standard prices!

The Regency Park Hotel offers a quality reasonably-priced three-star boutique hotel with 117 rooms and suites in one of Bangkok’s most famous entertainment, shopping, and business districts.

Imperial Hua Hin Beach Resort, Hua Hin

Imperial Hua Hin Beach Resort, Hua Hin

Located slightly outside of Hua Hin so it's slightly isolated if you have to rely on the two hourly shuttle which the hotel runs to downtown Hua Hin. The hotel is part of the Imperial chain and you can expect the usual Imperial hospitality and comfort.

The resort provides 124 elegantly designed rooms, and has a beachfront location on Klaikangwon Beach.

The three-star resort provides a complimentary shuttle serve to Hua Hin, so guests can enjoy all the bustling markets, restaurants and entertainment venues that the city has to offer. It is also 7 km away from the domestic airport. There are a few onsite restaurants for guests to dine at, including the Montalay Beachfront Restaurant, which serves a variety of both Thai and Western cuisine, and the coffee shop entertains guests with live piano music.

Excellent medium range value for a nice and relaxed environment.
