We left Manila early morning of July 31, 2012 but our flight got delayed for almost 3 hours because of tropical cyclone 'Gener' also known internationally as 'Saola'. It’s off peak season and I really love travelling during this time 'coz of the cheaper hotel/tour rates plus the crowd is lesser than the usual.
Anyway, we arrived at our hotel after lunch. We made advance bookings through Asiatravel.com and stayed with Baan K Residences. I’ve read reviews about this hotel and I would have to agree that it was hard to find the hotel for the first time ‘coz some cab drivers were not familiar with the Soi Sathorn 2 area.
Baan K Residence for me was the perfect place for those who want to experience real vacation in Bangkok, Thailand. Our room was upgraded from Studio to One Bedroom Superior . Thanks again Baan K! The location’s a bit far away from where the action (malls, night markets, temples, etc.) is but its ok. The nearest station was Lumphini MRT and Sala Daeng BTS. But personally, I’d recommend taking the Lumphini MRT since its nearer the hotel compared to the BTS. Don’t worry though, the hotel offers a free tuk-tuk ride going to Sala Daeng BTS.

They offer free tuk-tuk rides from around 9:00am to 4:00pm only.
