    Centre Point Sukhumvit soi 10

    Hi Vagamundo, I used to take walks in Benjakitti Park every morning when I stayed at Center Point 10. It is a nice park. I also liked the quiet neighborhood at the far end of Soi 10 & Soi 12 (Circle S). So I wish I had better news for you, but I am not aware of any path or alley way that connects Soi 10 and Soi 12 or allows access to the park from Soi 12. I took a look at Google Maps close up visual of Soi 12 and there appears to be a guardrail at the end of Soi 12 separating it from vacant city land adjacent to the park, but I could not be certain access to the park is possible since a vender's cart was blocking the view. I would confirm access with the condo owner before booking. It would not surprise me if he is telling it like it is.

    Centre Point Sukhumvit soi 10

    99.99% of the transactions I have with hotels when I travel is with a CC. Then there is no possible problem although I think you are fine dealing with the Grande Centre Point on a cash basis if that is more convenient.to you. In my case I booked through Expedia and got the $65/Night deal on a 1 br suite with free buffet breakfast for 2. The breakfast was not very good especially compared to the buffet breakfast at the Grand Centre Point T21, but then a 1 bedroom suite at the Grand CP is 2.5 times more expensive. Anyway it sufficed and all I really need for breakfast is coffee and some fresh fruit.

    Centre Point Sukhumvit soi 10

    I have stayed at the Centre Point Soi 10. While it is not up to the standard of the 5 star Grand Centre Point Hotels it is very reasonably priced and that is a big plus. The 1 bedroom suites are very large and surprisingly well appointed with a Living Room, a full Kitchen and a balcony. Talk about a place to party and entertain girls; this place is it. The hotel is guest friendly. I brought back multiple girls on several occasions and no one cared. The lobby is small and unpretentious, but the pool is nice. The Hotel is located at the far end of Soi 10 in a very quiet location. There is a back door entrance onto Benjakitti Park which is great for morning walks before it gets too hot. It takes about 8 minutes to walk from the hotel to Sukhumvit although the hotel provides caddy service for its guests back and forth every 30 minutes until around 10:30 pm. I also like the Fraser Suites Hotel on Soi 11 which costs a little more, but since the Fraser is on Soi 11 near nightclubs it is both a little more convenient, but also in a lot noisier location. Both hotels are good values. I pay around $65 / night at Centre Point Soi 10 and around $85/night at the Fraser for similar size 1 BR suites. (I book way in advance of a trip whenever I spot a good deal.) I would rather spend my money on girls than hotels.

    The 5th capital sin...

    Interesting news. I never went to Gaggan, but I always like to know about restaurants that are on the cutting edge. Here is a little more on the Chef's latest effort: https://www.cntraveller.in/story/bangkok-restaurant-thailand-chef-gaggan-anand-november-2019/#s-cust0 To quote from the article, " Divided across three zones: G’s Spot, Arena G and My Private Table, the restaurant in Sukhumvit allows patrons to pick a dining experience as per their preferences. The overall idea for the new restaurant, Gaggan explains, is to retain a sense of fun while losing the pretension associated with fine dining. Expect “progressive Indian cuisine,” in a signature Gaggan Anand style. According to its website, the restaurant will serve “communal food” while promising to “stimulate emotions of food erogenous zones of your tongue with texture, temperature, taste and surprise.” All booking requests can only be made online via the website. Apart from standard questions about allergies and food preferences, you will also have to answer a list of fairly unusual queries (what is your favourite band, cuss word, what your plans are before dinner at the restaurant), etc. A reservation team then confirms the booking. Gaggan Anand restaurant is open for dinner six days a week (closed on Tuesday) with five time slots: 5.30pm, 6.30pm, 7pm (G’s Spot only), 8.30pm, 9.30pm. (G’s Spot Table has only seating at 7pm). 8000++THB (Rs18,700) per person for the set menu." It seems a little pricey to me, but I would love to hear from someone who has been there and tried the food".

    Sukhumvit -2nd guest no charge?

    Xcom's picks are popular. I would recommend the Sofitel Sukhumvit or the Hyatt Regency (Soi 13) over the Landmark at this price point. Both are in between Cowboy and Nana and very close to Thermae. A great location. But check this web site out. https://www.gfriendlyhotels.com/ for a full range of suggestions.

    Sukhumvit -2nd guest no charge?

    I have never had a problem in a BKK Hotel with 2 guests or even more. BKK is girl friendly, but in Pattaya no, some Pattaya Hotels will charge for the 2nd girl and worse even, some Pat Hotels are not girl friendly at all and charge for any guest not registered at the time of check in or on the reservation. Go figure. But BKK is cool & friendly. As to any specific BKK hotel recommendations: I need more info like your max rate you want to pay and desired location.
