The Ascott is located in South Sathorn Road right in the heart of Bangkok's financial and business district. Sathorn is also home to the corporate office of multi-nationals and embassies. I stayed at the corner of the 18th floor that offered a nice view of Sathorn Road and the BTS train. I'll post the vid of it with the next few days.
The room was plenty big enough featuring a king-sized bed, a nice flat TV, a sala, a kitchen area and a spacious bath. I've always like the New World Hotel rooms for its elegance and comfortable rooms. After this week, the Ascott is right up there.
I wasn't able to go and sample the night market at nearby Silom with its popular restaurants and coffee shops because I was down with the flu. So instead I caught up with the 2008 NBA All-Star game.
For buffet breakfast the following day, I had a choice between Asian and a American dishes. I tried both and helped myself to a lot of fruits. Take note of the sports pages of the Bangkok Post.
