    Selective about hotels

    Was last in Pattaya and had a blast, but now will visit BKK in December. I'm looking for advice on a 3 or 4 star hotel of very good value in the Sukhumvik area. My price range will be between 1500 - 2000 baht/night. Looking for something that: is certainly girl friendly, has an in-room electronic safe, has a decent breakfast, is very clean, has a pool and possibly a gym, and within a 5 minute walk to the FLs. Any suggestions? Am I asking too much?

    Nana hotel?

    Personally I like the Rompo Mansion in Klong Toei. Not a tourist hotel, clean, nice pool, gym, coffee, 2 minute from a Tesco, 5min to Carefour, 20 baht mototaxi to the Emporium. Lot's of great hole in the wall Thai eateries.
    No in room safe, never had anything stolen, I stay there a lot. I like the secure parking and the Thai massage parlor on the second floor. 750bht a night.

    No, just eastern european supermodels hanging out by the pool. They may look good, but are thoroughly loathsome as people.

    My only problem with the rompo is constantly being pulled by the rozzers when walking around the area - 4 times in a month. I'm sticking to central areas from now on.

    I've never had a run with the police around there. What are you doing? Jaywalking?
    When I'm on the big moto the BIB wave at me quite often. I usually pretend I don't see them.
