Aphrodite Inn Hotel
Aphrodite Inn Hotel is especially good for those who travel to Bangkok for medical tourism and for cosmetic surgery as several of the hospitals recommend this hotel for stay before and after the treatment. Conveniently located near the Pratu Nam Shopping Center, Central World Plaza and a short walk from the Platinum Mall, the Aphrodite Inn Hotel is indeed an Aphrodite for those who stay there.
The hotel is known for its courteous and polite staff and the price for a room for two with breakfast works out to USD58 a night which is a relief for those on a budget. There is the added option of flexible check in and checkout which might be music to the ears of those who have flights at odd hours.
What I like about Aphrodite Inn Hotel
The professionalism of the staff is something which sets apart the Aphrodite Inn Hotel from other hotels. Given the range of options that travelers have around the Platinum and the Central Plaza mall, the Aphrodite Inn Hotel is indeed a competitive one for those on not too high a budget.
The front desk staff is quite friendly and the rooms are airy and comfortable. The breakfast spread is good and the spas in the hotel are relaxing after a hectic day at work or going around the city. The central location of the hotel makes it attractive for business travelers.
What I dislike about Aphrodite Inn Hotel
There is no free Wi-Fi access in the hotel and the Wi-Fi charges can be expensive. The spas are good but a bit crowded since the spas outside the hotel are steeply priced. You might have to wait for your turn in the Sauna longer than expected.
The big disadvantage of the hotel is that not many taxi drivers seem to know where the hotel is and this can be frustrating for those who have ventured into the city.
How to get to Aphrodite Inn Hotel
You can take a private van or a taxi from the airport. Getting in and around the city is not that troublesome though you may have to guide the taxi driver. This is bothersome for those on their first visit to Bangkok. However, you can always take the skytrain (BTS) at Chilom Station or the bus from other locations in case you feel that you would be lost.
