Bunrungrad/Sukhumvit Hotels-Bangkok

Hi, Going to geta couple of dental procedures done at Bunrungrad. Can anyone suggest any hotels nearby? I've heard the Landmark is close, but 4* is a little out of my range.

How about the Euro Inn? Thanks!

There is a hotel on the corner just a couple of minutes walk to Bunrungrad, I 'think' it is called the Mark, let me ask around, it is very nice 2* about B 1,200 a night, I'll get back to you.

Tai Pan is about B 1,300 ( $30 ) or the Zenith about B 1,900 ( $5 ), Zenith is easy walk, Tai Pan also close, the Eruo Inn should be a little cheaper.

I agree that having dental work it's nice to be close to your hotel!, the Zenith is just a 'short walk'.

Good luck and don't worry, I hated going to dentists but the Bumrungrad is simply Brilliant! and you don't have to worry about a thing, they are great!!

the jw marriott is very close but maybe that is too expensive...i think the hospital has a hotel?? send an e-mail to their internation customer service dept....they are very nice and will make suggestions i think..tell them what you want to pay...the hospital is very cheap too...maybe you can just stay there...

Actually the hospitel 'is' cheap to stay! I Think it was B 2,400 for de-luxe room because I went there whilst living in Phuket and planned to actaully stay there as I really liked the idea to have the dental work done and be 'wheeled' staight to a room where i would be looked after etc. depends how 'big' the dental work is, if it's a big job then it seriously can make very good sense to actually 'stay there', they have Starbucks and Pizza House in the hospital!! I think the Mark..place on the corner is no longer there, I got blank responses when I asked.

Dolcevita ( love the name by the way! ) a couple of Tips about Dental work in Thailand.
1> Your usual hometown dentist probably 'tells you' what you need done, in Thailand they tend to ask you what you 'want done'!
2> Do take an X-Rays or other records, these will be of use.
3> They 'literally' hold your hand !!

Wow, are dental procedures relatively safe in Bangkok? Now that I thinking about it, is teeth whitening safe and afordable there?

Hi James, thanks for the dental tips. I was thinking I'd have x-rays done there, tho I suppose it couldn't hurt to bring mine with me.

Logos, my research indicates that Bumrungrad is indeed a safe, accredited hospital, used by ex-pats, Embassy workers, etc. Incredibly inexpensive! Porcelain veneers here are $1300-$1800 per tooth. At Bumrungrad, $200 per tooth!

Anyone ever stay at the Zenith? Euro Inn? Atlanta? Any other experience with these or other sukhumvit hotels near the hospital appreciated.

just to add reassurance about the hospital, may i add the following....having read about it in our boston paper 18 months ago, we arranged for a tour while there in november, 2002...my wife is a nurse at a major boston teaching hospital affiliated with harvard and thus knows modern medicine.....she found the hospital and its equipment to be top knotch and the same that is in use at her hospital....we were amazed by how inexpensive everything was and the luxuary of the place....you are in for a treat, if dental work can be considered a treat....i would bring my x-rays to be safe....i would also talk to my own dentist about what i had planned to have done....
