You never know what you're going to get when you book a hotel sight unseen on the Internet, especially when it's your first visit to an exceptionally large city like Bangkok, Thailand.

We consider ourselves lucky having booked 10 days at the Varindavan Park Boutique Hotel in the Wattana area of Bangkok.  As a family of five, we were looking for a multi-bedroom residence to kick off the first extended leg of our tour around Southeast Asia.  Varindavan Park fit our needs perfectly as they refer to themselves as a "serviced residence", like a Condotel.

They have everything from standard rooms up to 3-bedroom condos.  All rooms have kitchenettes and modern furnishings with cable TV, super-cold air conditioning, and high-speed WIFI in each room.  We opted for a 2 bedroom - 2 bath unit.  Each bedroom had king-size beds and private balconies.

Upon arrival, we were greeted with big smiles, good English, and cold complimentary orange juice before we even checked in.  We made two extra requests which were catered to very quickly. One was for a DVD player if they had one, which they actually ran out and bought a new one for us to use.  Second, was some cooking utensils and plates etc. They also managed to bring those up well before we bought food to cook that first afternoon.

However, the hotel had a cafe that served free breakfast to our room each morning and stayed open until midnight.  They also sold beer and soft drinks in the lobby, and delivered complimentary bottled water each day.

During our stay, we enjoyed the rooftop pool and fitness room nearly everyday (sometimes twice a day).  The city views of Bangkok were amazing from the roof which was more than adequately secure for our 4-year-old to roam freely.

Located on a relatively quiet side street, the 8-story building was easy walking distance to over a dozen good restaurants, coffee shops, a convenient store and a large grocery store.  It was also a brisk 15-minute walk to the sky train and modern malls with all the Western trimmings one could desire.  Additionally, taxis were plentiful and cheap to explore other parts of the city (less than $4 to the Grand Palace 25 minutes away).

The cost was a bit above our budget, but was a bargain for the quality and comfort of our stay.  The prices vary depending on room size and season.  Monthly discounts up to 50% are offered, and special rates appear on various hotel booking websites.  It's most recommended to call or email them directly in advance to get their best price quote.

We feel lucky to have stumbled on the Varindavan Park hotel and highly recommend them for families traveling to Bangkok. We give it 4 STARS (out of 5) for mid-priced family travel hotels.
