My partner and I came back from a trip to Asia, which was amazing. Bangkok was our third stop after having travelled through Hong Kong, and Macau. While in Bangkok you have many hotel choices, I am so happy that we selected The Continent Hotel. I usually liked staying in Silom due to its proximity to the bars and pubs, but Sukhumvit is also very posh and actually a little more upscale than Silom. Our flight from Macau into Bangkok was on-time, which meant that we could potentially arrive early to The Continent Hotel. When we arrived it was around 12PM noon time and Ms. Gy greeted us and we were welcomed by refreshing drinks. We had approximately a wait of only about 30 min. for our room, which Ms. Gy graciously offered us a complimentary fruit platter, which was waiting in our room. We loved the room, which based on our Expedia.com we got a room with an upgrade which was fantastic, not only for a better views but based on other reviewers I believe we were a step above the rest of the rooms, which personally the bathroom was my favorite thing in the room. We were staying on the 'Paris' floor and stayed there for 2-nights from April 23rd to April 25th, which I wish we would have stayed longer but we had another stop within Thailand after in Phuket. As far as the hotel amenities, I have to say that the hotel is immaculately kept, it seemed like a fairly new structure. As other reviewers said, you have an excellent choice for mass transit if you stay at The Continent Hotel -- Asok BTS (Skytrain) and Sukhumvit MTR (Subway). Depending on where you're going the MTR could be a much shorter distance and we went in April (hottest month), so to avoid the heat waiting for the BTS, we preferred taking the MTR. You should avoid taking taxis during mid-day, the Bangkok traffic is insanely busy. Plus the mass transit is much cheaper. Our overall stay at The Continent Hotel was excellent. The room that we paid for through Expedia.com was the breakfast included option, which was great choice. Other reviewers have complained about the food for breakfast, but we personally were 100% satisfied with the food options, as well as, quality of food. I totally recommend you pay a little extra for the breakfast option, which it might be cheaper than if you decide to eat there at last minute. If you need any drinks or snacks, literally a block and a half away you have Terminal 21 which has a ton of restaurants and even a supermarket at the basement floor. I would recommend you go there if you need to buy liquor or snacks-- reasonably priced. In terms of the hotel amenities, I wish the gym was a little bigger at The Continent Hotel, but it was a couple of new machines so the basic stuff. The pool was my favorite, it's on the top floor overlooking Bangkok, and amazing views-- wish our room had these views. Overall we were super happy with our service and for what you get in terms of value is an excellent choice. Thank you to Ms. Gy for a great room. To all of the other staff, great job too.
