Can anyone suggest a decent hotel near Bangkok International airport for an overnight stay. I've had a look at a couple but I'm not sure. Novotel is very close but has anyone else stayed somewhere they would recommend. We get in at 10:30 at night and leave the next day at 2:30 so its really somewhere to stay with breakfast included.

I guess you mean 2:30 PM.

Some of the hotels advertised as "being close to the airport" are not really that close! Bangkok is a 24 hour city. My advice is to just go into the city and freshen up quickly and go out and look around. On Sukhumvit Road you will find the streets well lighted and many people out and about. Millions of tourists arrive around midnight and still head into the city!

How much do you want to pay for your hotel? Knowing your hotel budget makes it easier to suggest a place to go to. You could use the left luggage office at the airport to hold your bags for you. There is even a new Airport Rail Link that takes you into the Pratunam are for only 45 baht each. Some hotels are available to walk to from the last rail link stops. The rail link also connects you to the Skytrain at Phaya Thai. Skytrain and rail link stops at midnight.

A meter taxi from the airport to the Siam or Sukhumvit Road area will cost around 350 baht which includes toll charges during the ride plus meter fare and 50 baht surcharge payable at your hotel. You can change money at the airport 24 hours a day. For taxi rides you have to use Thai baht, also get small bills when you change money over to pay for cheap things.

If you have an international flight be back at the airport 2 hours before departure. If you are just flying out to another city in Thailand you should have scheduled a couple nights at least in Bangkok to make connections easier.

Breakfast can be a cheap meal. For as little as 70 baht you can buy breakfast in some places. Definitely under 300 baht unless you only choose expensive places to eat at.. At the airport the Magic Food Court on the first floor near door 8 is maybe the cheapest place to eat at in the airport area.
