Whenever we travel, there are certain things that I consider before booking a hotel. I have to consider our budget, location of the hotel, facilities and amenities of the hotel and of course if the hotel is family-friendly. When we went to Bangkok, Thailand, we stayed at Four Points by Sheraton which is located in Sukhumvit Area.

Among the four hotels that my husband tried in Bangkok, this hotel is the most affordable one. I already blogged about this hotel, you can check my hotel review here. But now, I will share with your our personal experience during our 6 Days Trip in Bangkok, Thailand. This time mas marami na details because I was there. Hehehe!

Upon arrival to Suvarnabhumi Aiport, we proceeded to Gate 5 because that is where the hotel service will pick us up. They advise us to wait inside the airport while waiting for the car because it is hot outside. When the chauffeur came, the staff ushered us to the car. Sosyal lang ng sumundo sa amin, Mercedes Benz. The car service is only good for 3 persons for THB1800. A bit expensive compared to taxi ride (THB500).
The chauffeur welcomed us and advised us about the complimentary cold towel, bottled water, and wifi. I really appreciate the cold towel, sa init sa Bangkok (like Philippines) need mo talaga marefreshen. I did not avail the free wifi since I purchased 4G Sim Card. Travel time is more or less one hour because of traffic.

When we reached the hotel, we gave our passport and paid the deposit (Amount x No. of nights). There is a complimentary drink in the lobby so just in case you need to drink while waiting for your key card. The hotel staff even gave a big lollipop to my son and accompanied us to the elevator. Off we went to our room which is located in the Pool Wing.
Watch the video here.
This is the room; like I’ve said before, it is quite similar to Crimson Mactan Resort and Spa. Since we are family of three, they asked if we want an extra bed. We asked if there is additional fee but they told us that it free so we said yes. They immediately delivered the extra bed and without asking, they gave extra towels, face towels, bathrobe and bottled water.
The bathroom has a separate shower and bathtub. One thing I liked about this hotel is they have a speaker (at the ceiling) inside the bathroom. So you can watch TV while inside the bathtub and no need to increase the volume because you have your own speaker inside. What I don't like is, they don't have a bidet.
Four Points by Sheraton is under SPG so you can also earn points by staying here. As a hotel guest, you have complimentary access to the gym, rooftop swimming pool, and wifi. If you are hungry or thirsty and don’t want to go out, you can visit AmBar, The Drunken Leprechaun, The Eatery or avail the In-room dining service.
What do I like About Four Points by Sheraton Bangkok?
I don’t have any expectations about this hotel because as I mentioned, this is the most affordable one among the four hotels. But after staying for 5 nights, I can definitely say that we liked this hotel, they really know how to spoil their guests. Let me enumerate why…
1. The hotel is near Terminal 21 Shopping Mall, Robinson Mall, and Tops 24 Hours Supermarket.
2. There are many restaurants within the area.
3. The hotel is near BTS Skytrain and MRT Subway so commuting is not a problem.
* They have backdoor access if you are going to Sukhumvit 17, Terminal 21 and Sky train.
4. They have a lot of complimentary or discounts (check the note in the mirror).
A. Very generous in giving complimentary bottled water.
B. Complimentary tuk-tuk ride.
C. Complimentary drinks at AmBar for two persons x 5 nights (alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks)
D. Complimentary snacks during our first night.
E. Complimentary beer (one beer) if you drink at The Drunken Leprechaun.
F. Special prices on classic cocktails, beer, house wine and spirits (Every Wednesday)
G. Free meal if you order from their restaurant.
5. They replenished our toiletries, tea, and coffee every day.
6. They changed the bedsheets, pillowcases, towels, and face towels every day. In some hotels, they will only change the sheets if you put the note on your bed.
7. When we had a problem connecting to the internet because it is so slow, they provided a device for us so we can have a good connection.
8. Service is good. They are very helpful, they helped us in getting a taxi or giving directions to (insert name of the place). Not all taxi drivers are fluent in English so at least may taga-translate kami.
9. Free laundry per day. (one piece of clothing).
The room package includes a buffet breakfast at The Eatery but I will share more about it in a separate post. On our third day, my son and I were so tired from our Kidzania trip so we don't want to go out anymore. We just take advantage of the in-room dining services, the bill is less than THB500 for two meals.
