I spent ages trying to book a decent, well situated and reasonable hotel. I'm happy to say I found it by staying in the Eastin!
I took my 2 teenage sons with me (aged 13 and 14) and we all agreed that the hotel was fantastic. The staff are genuinely friendly (you don't get a feeling of 'fakeness' about them, the executive room we had was brill and the shopping areas/malls are only a 10 minute walk away.
There's a tour desk on floor 3 or you can hire one of the hotel taxi staff to take you places if need be, although both options were fairly expensive. I found a great tour agents round the corner, on the street opposite the DMA Hotel, which ran tours to all the major destinations at cheap prices.
The outdoor pool at the hotel was wonderful (we spent loads of time in there!) and there was a cocktail bar on poolside, which had a buy one get one free happy hour from 4-6 each day!
There's a 7-11 store opposite the hotel to stock up on your essentials and if you need to get a meter taxi, there's always one outside the hotel (although it does get a little irritating when they ask you every time you step foot out of the hotel!)
The view from the hotel is pretty much just of the highway (which strangely is quite a spectacular view at night time!) There's also a BTS Sky Train stop very close by.
All in all a wonderful stay, and will certainly return there again!
