21/11/15 to 22/11/15

Mantra Hotel Tullamarine $169.00 Aud

This is the first time we have used this hotel and will definitely use it again. Pick up to and from the airport was prompt and courteous, the room, bathroom and facilities were clean and comfortable and the buffet breakfast had a multitude of choices and overall was excellent. I only have one complaint with this hotel and that is the charging for Wi Fi internet this should be a standard free offered service. (Having stated this I was given an upgrade and free internet usage) that stated we will definitely be using this hotel again thanks to all the staff who made our stay so comfortable

22/11/15 to 26/11/15

Pacific Express Kuala Lumpur 148 Ringgit per night = $49.40

Total $195.60

We stayed at this hotel when it had just opened last year and were very impressed so thought we would give it another try. Unfortunately all of the staff, bar the doorman had left the new staff needing a little to be desired in comparison to the enthusiastic attitude of last year’s staff. All that said and done the rooms, facilities and location of this hotel still make it a winner for the price you pay here. Pay the extra money and get a room with a window on a upper floor we booked with the hotel directly and got an excellent price .Some extra training of the new staff would not go astray and would make this a far better hotel

We stayed here last year for about a week and liked it so much decided to rent it for 6 weeks this year. The condo is a modern one with all the mod cons including gym and very large swimming pool .The apartment itself is on the 17th floor with great views of the river and Wat Perriwat it’s got 1 bedroom/lounge/ kitchen/bathroom and great balcony mod cons include on demand TV/Wi Fi/washing machine/fridge etc. There is the BRT bus station right outside the condo which will link you with the BTS/MRT/and also the river ferries. There is great street food close by or some upmarket restaurants across the road we will return here again next time in Bangkok
