My sixth stay at Park 9, an upgraded room well worth the few extra baht. This hotel remains impeccable, the surroundings relaxing, and its proximity to Paradise Park (a vast, upscale shopping mall) advantageous. I love this place and very much look forward to staying there again.
There are, however, a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost, Park 9 is not easy to find. You can be sure that your taxi driver has never heard of it--so, have the hotel's phone number handy. On his mobile, the driver can call Park 9 and get directions as he proceeds in the direction of Paradise Park mall.
Secondly, the hotel's website features a map showing the BTS Skytrain very near at hand--within walking distance. Not the case! In fact, the nearest BTS station is a 15-minute taxi ride in both directions. I will say, however, that the combination taxi/Skytrain is an easy, inexpensive (less than US$4 total each direction) way of getting into downtown Bangkok.
Thirdly, as others have pointed out, Park 9's restaurant (although attractively situated) is barely adequate--and service is slow. On the other hand, a five-minute walk to Paradise Park offers more (and better) dining options than you could exhaust in a lifetime!
