As we are frequent visitors in Babylon hotel and sauna, we warmly welcome in to the house by the permanent staff. The first night in the just renewed 7th floor room with private bathroom was quiet and luxury, but during the breakfast time there were some noice comig from the neighbouring kithcenette, were the breakfast ladies washed the brekfast dishes. And that noice should repeat each morniing, so we asked another room.
After the first night our luggage was transferred to the Bvlgari garden suite (804), so the quiet and peaceful holiday could start for one month. Those garden suites with very helpful and kind maids are really comfortable and very luxury furnished with pieces of old Thai art. The rooms are spacious and the common living areas are like a kings´palace.
All the staff is very friendly, even though only few of them are able to communicate in English. That is not however a problem, because they can manage servig guests with the Thai attitude and a big smile. The staff consists of gay and straight people, but they never tend to go to bed with the customers. Hotel guests are free to have outside visitors in their rooms after registered them in the reception (visitor leaves his ID in the reception while he is visiting a room).
All the facilities are safe and clean. The restaurants provide excellent food with a moderate price, like the bars provide all kind of drinks moderately priced as well. Taxis and motorbike taxis are available 24 hours on the gate, so transportation works safe and cheaply.
The breakfast in th 6th floor is simply, but very good and tasty. Bread, eggs, omelettes, juice, milk, cereals, thai food, ham, butter, marmelade, teas, coffee, sweet tarts and fresh fruits of course.
Babylon is a heaven for a gay couples as well as to those who travel alone.
I would rate Babylon a 4 stars+.
