  1. We are aware of this guys but are a bit stumped. All settings are correct i.e. same as PA, but its fkked it seems We are trying to get answers from Invision.
  2. Yes Landmark is totally guest friendly. Indeed whenever I have stayed there they dont even ask the girl to check in as you hit the lifts before you get to reception. I am NOT suggesting you don't check a girl in just saying it is easily done and they don't seem to bat an eyelid.
  3. Hi js89 Thanks for raising this. Its a bit beyond me but i can say with 100% certainly that domain/website is not mine. It is also not on our server at all. We have a dedicated server and host only our own sites on there - 100% that is not one of them. I am not tech minded so I don't claim to understand what these people have done but will get it looked into - so thanks again.
  4. I have stayed at Heaven@4 twice. Both were for reviews so just one night each time. It is a great place if you like "boutique" style. It is also very close to Nana Plaza. I found it nice and good value but I am not a fan of boutique style. I think better hotels in the locality are The Dawin and, especially, Aspen Suites which I just discovered and which is awesome in terms of quality, size and price.
  5. I believe it is owned by Thais. They are actually Sikh but 3rd generation Thai. I did not see any Indian guests when I was there. http://www.agoda.com/aspen-suites-hotel/hotel/bangkok-th.html?cid=1412148
  6. Sorry guys i saw this thread late - I have posted my own review of Aspen Suites here http://www.bangkok-addicts.com/forum/topic/4384-aspen-suites-my-recent-stay/
  7. I usually stay in the Dawin for my trips to BKK. Nice place and good value at around 1900-2000 per night with breakfast. However, this visit (just 2 nights) I was persuaded by a friend to try Aspen Suites. It is located on Sukhumvit Soi 2 which is the Soi adjacent to Soi Nana. It is however about the same walking time from NEP as the Dawin whcih is on Soi 4 itself. I booked the Deluxe Room with breakfast at 1489 inc taxes on Agoda (prices vary depending on offers at the time). I am VERY glad I did. This place is super quality, indeed I would rate it up with the Landmark which is 3x the price. Room was excellent, pool was great! It has a pretty decent decent looking gym although I dont use them so I cannot comment too much on that. Best of all was the breakfast buffet which was as good as I have had in BKK and I have always rated Landmarks breakfast buffet as the best I have experienced personally. Having reviewed countless hotels in Pattaya and Bangkok I think I can safely say this is the best value for money I have experienced. OK, in reality it is NOT the Landmark - but at 33% of the price, and with BIGGER rooms, the value and standards are really quite awesome No pics but plenty on the Agoda Page (even if you dont book with them). On an extra note - a small tip. Right opposite the hotel entrance there is a small Turkish restaurant. It was wonderful. I am a bit of a fan of Turkish food but even if you are not it is well worth a try.
  8. As mentioned before hotelscombined.com compares all the major online bookers. I stil use Agoda as I dind it cheapest most of the time and as a frequent user the loyalty points add up. Note if you book them via combinedhotels.com you dont get the loyalty points.
  9. As a long time resident of President Park I was opposite the hotel every day. It is certainly very nice. Given the way its owner has made his fortune is surprising it is not girl friendly but he has tried to build a very upmarket place so it doesnt surprise me. FYI President Park IS girl friendly if you like that location. Davis Hotel reviews
  10. 30k would get you all you need depending on the area you wish to live. I could recommend Ekkamai and Thong Lor which are very popular areas with expats and you should get what you want inside your budget there. To get the best deals use the THAI Online agencies - NOT the farang ones. They can be anything up to 50% cheaper for the same type of apartments. 9Apartment has a good rep and although you may need some help with the Thai you can see the lower prices quite clearly.
  11. The Cathouse used to have a great reputation. Then it changed ownership and it went downhill very fast as they pulled the "drink as much as you can" Happy Hour. Good to hear its better again as I always enjoyed sitting there. Can see some reviews here Cathouse Nana Plaza - might be worth saying there that its improved again :)
  12. Good option is Woraburi. Cheaper and much nicer rooms than Nana Hotel. Its located on Soi Nana but is a bit of a trek down. Double occupancy with 2 breklkies is under 1000 on Agoda.com and Agoda is MUCH cheaper than booking direct or walking in.
  13. I wouldnt mind seeing Ribery either mate but then again I love flying piggies too. Is the Huntelaar saga ongoing? Anyone snapped him up?
  14. I will be blunt, its a dump and experience or not experience you would never catch me in there again. If what you say above is true you can double that dislike!! Try the Woraburi about 150 metres down Soi 4. Very nice rooms although smaller than Nana. Available on Agoda for around 900 baht (2 persons + brekkie).
  15. Yes, but this has one distinct downside. Even in low season the best places fill first and doing it this way dramatically reduces your chances of getting your first choice hotel. If you then end up spending half a day traipsing around finding one you like with availability thats half a day wasted IMO. I do accept there are benefits to this method but for me having the max' time enjoying myself is the main consideration.
  16. I had to do a one night business trip to BKK recently close to Nana. I often stay at the Woraburi as although the rooms are small they are well fitted and the whole place is far cleaner than the Nana at must lower prices. This trip I had an interesting experience and its best described by copying in (as best I can remember) the conversation. Arrived outside the Woraburi Big Sign outside stating Room 997 Baht Do for me I thought. Went in and asked for Standard Room, double occupancy with brekkie "Yes sir that will be 1600 Baht" - WTF. "You have a sign outside says 997 Baht" "Oh we dont do that now" "OK I can book on the internet for 900 Baht" "OK Sir we will do 1300 baht but only one person and no breakfast" "But I can book on the internet for 900 Baht. I will pay 1000 for two with one breakfast" "OK sir but the best I can do is 1300, one person, no breakfast" "OK wait" Walk to the internet cafe - about 30 metres Book same room for two + breafast on Agoda. Cost including Taxes for two people and two breakfasts - 931 baht + got 40 loyalty points whcih are the main reason I always use Agoda Print off coupon Walk back 30 meters. Girl all smiles "ahhh welcome back sir" Hand her the print coupon. Cue loud THUD as girls chin hits floor. They now have a grand total of around 760 baht as they pay Agoda20%. She stands there looking gobsmacked and calls over the manager. He tells her to accept the coupon. I dont want to appear a cheap Charlie here, I would happily have paid the 1000 to save the short trip to the net cafe.
  17. LOL I know what you mean guys but its actually 12% discount (at bar price) on a 500 baht ticket - not actually so bad when you think about it.
  18. Yes good advice. Tickets were on sale the other night and I would bet you need to buy in advance as its almost certain to be a sell out. The man himself.
  19. Just to be pedantic :D its Hillary 2 not Hillary Bar. They are about 100mts apart. Mind you I doubt you will be able to get it wrong on the night. Hillary 2 is not very big so you will probably have to arrive fairly early to be assured of a view.
  20. Test - should see a pic below. I can, anyone seeing just text still?
  21. Hi Bud Actually Laamok worked on it not me - I cant even tie my shoelaces :D It should be fixed but may take 48 hours to propagate or so I am reliably informed. Longplay - as I said in my PM, thank you for letting us know and please keep any reports coming as if we are not aware of issues we can't fix them.
  22. Yeah I predict 2-1 to Manure and I have £500 on it at 4/1 with you for correct score. If I am right you owe me £2000 and if I am wrong I owe you £500. As I a feeling in the mood I will have a further £500 on Arsenal scoring first and another £500 on Looney scoring a penalty. I will accept payment in bar fines if you do likewise. :D
  23. Hate to say it - but think the Manure will win again.
  24. I hate the summer break although the Ashes made it bearable this year. Manure for me! No team can lose (arguably) the best player in the world and remain as good as they were but I think they have the quality over 9 months to win the Prem. I don't think they will do so well in Europe as they might struggle in one offs when its knockout. Chelsea I feel will be the best in Europe with the mighty Gooners if they can last the season on a small squad. As for Spuds......................do us a favour!!! 555 That said have huge respect for Harry and he might just put you in the frame with Arsenal, Villa, Liverpool, City for 3rd/4th and a CL spot next year. Cant actually see City making top 4. Loads a Money spent..............on fook all IMO.
