Radisson Suites Bangkok Sukhumvit- how close to Pratunam?

Hi, we are looking at booking this hotel but we usually stay in the Pratunam area. How far is this place from say the Indra Regent?

Is it an easy sky train, tuk-tuk or taxi ride?

We have a few favorite restaurants in the Pratunam area and like the shopping too.

Also how far from MBK?

What is around the Sukhumvit area? And has anyone stayed at the Radisson?

We would like to try a new area, so you think this is for us?

Thanks

As you know that is no skytrain station very close to Pratunam, so it would entail a taxi ride (or 20 minute walk) from either Chidlom or Siam stations. That hotel is between Nana and Asoke BTS stations so you could also ride the BTS to National Stadium where MBK is located. The travelling time on the skytrain is about 10-15 minutes. (Sukhumvit MRT stn is next to Asoke BTS).

Sukhumvit is one the the city's major roads and has endless restaurants, shops, cafes, hotels etc, and seem to be popular with many visitors.

This place?

Sukhumvit is a little more lively than the Pratunam area. There are malls, street vendors, small shops, supermarkets and nightlife you can walk to. Nana area still full of tourists even at 1 or 2 a.m. You can use the Skytrain to take you to MBK, Chatuchak, Siam area and get you close to Phetchaburi Road. Skytrain also connects with subway and Airport Rail Link.

If you do not want to use the Skytrain you can use a taxi. But don't use a tuk-tuk except for the heck of it. Since you were in Bangkok before you already know that when using a meter taxi you only pay the meter fare. You also know the meter fare is the same for one passenger or for 4 people.

I think you should give the Sukhumvit area a go and see how you like it. You can still go to Pratunam for shopping if you want. Who knows, you might get to like the Skytrain.

Asia Web Direct has a very good deal on that Hotel for the next 72 hrs. looks good value to me.

I have never stayed there however.
