Stayed at The Berkeley Hotel for three night stopover. Booked the room via Agoda.com, reserving a twin room luxury suite and breakfast included for an absolute steal! The rooms are very grand; beds and bedding an absolute dream to sleep in! We found The Berkeley was a perfect way to 'wind down' after a very full on twelve week trip.
I had not ever visited Bangkok before, but I assume The Berkeley is located in one of the city's main districts. There is an adjoining mall, and further malls and street markets in neighbouring streets. There are taxis and drivers who line the streets out the front of the hotel, and therefore easy to find and barter for transport. BE WARNED: make sure to have the exact address, and if possible, written in Thai also as taxi drivers often have very little idea of where particular malls/locations are. Perhaps pay attention to what other significant hotels are in the general vicinity to help as a guide.
Breakfast buffet is incredible! The best selection and choice to be had throughout our trip.
Staff are incredibly friendly and lovely to speak to. My only concern was that at times, there appear to be a lot more staff than guests in the lobby, and at times there appears to be communication breakdowns between staff.
For something to do, my recommendation would be to visit The Banyan Tree Hotel; the rooftop bar offers some incredible views of Bangkok by night.
Although I probably will not visit Bangkok again by choice, I highly recommend The Berkeley Hotel for any stay in Thailand.
