If there is one easy way to get someone—ah hem, a hotel geek, ideally—to think about a trip to Bangkok, Thailand, it's by listing some of the room rates for the city's four- and five-star hotels. They are low three digits, or, in some nice cases, even two digits, like at the Anantara Bangkok Sathorn where a deluxe regularly goes for $98 per night, and you have a small apartment with two balconies overlooking the city.

This is not your typical Anantara; it's business-focused, and situated just off the pulsating vein (and sometimes clogged artery, if it's rush hour) that is Sathorn Road. We were only at this hotel for a sleep-and-dash, so although we can't say anything about the pool (which it has) and restaurants (which it has), we can say that the deluxe room layout is generous, with separate living, dining and sleeping areas plus a commodious restroom.

Now for the big question: is the WiFi free? Yes, and we had no problems with it, even connecting two devices was easy-peasy.

It's a bummer that we spent such little time in such a big room. Because of the mini-apartment layout of these deluxe room, it's easy to see ourselves staying for 12 days—not just twelve hours.

Disclosure: We were guests of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, but trust that all photos and opinions are completely our own.
