Hotel recommendation please - Near Bangkok Intrnl Airport - 4-5 stars

We have a 5 am flight out of Bangkok so we are looking for a good hotel very close to the Suvarnabhumi airport. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Are you staying in Bangkok in the days before your flight out? If so, stay in the city. Your hotel will be much better, you'll be bale to have a nice dinner, etc., and it will take you 30 minutes or less to get to the airport at that hour.

If you are flying in from somewhere else and need to stay near the airport, the best of the airport hotels is the Novotel. It's frankly over-priced, but it's fine, and by others' reports, better than any of the other airport hotels. The best prices tend to be from agoda as a pre-paid, non-refundable rate. Look at the Novotel website as well, as once I got better pre-paid rates from them. Make sure you are looking at the one AT the airport, as the Novotel search will turn up a number of their hotels "near" (up to half an hour away) the airport.

The Novotel is on sale now for $79 (Accor Super Sale) and it is a midscale market hotel. Like the Novotel, Best Western Amaranth Suvarnabhumi is another better Airport property. Le Méridien Suvarnabhumi Golf Resort wont open until 9/2012. But I agree with Kathie here, if your stay in Bangkok is for more than a 24-hour period, I'd go to town to experience some of the world's best hotels.

The Novotel has a direct access to the main airport terminal ... photos are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kalboz/...7622489516321/

The Super Sale is a great deal if you are traveling in the window of the sale. Alas! It seems I never am.

Someone I know reported on the Best Western recently. They said it was ok, not as nice as the Novotel, but more reasonably priced.

Thank you for your recommendations. WE are going to wait until we are actually in Bangkok (we have 2 weeks there) and then decide if we want to stay right by the airport or in the city.

Another vote for staying in the city and taking a taxi to the airport. There is not much traffic at that time and easy to get to the airport. Our flights out of BKK are usually around 0600 and we generally attend our hotel club happy hour, eat sometimes afterwards in the hotel than go right to sleep so we can awake early to get to the airport.
