Safest option for a Bangkok hotel.

No idea where you have your experiences from. Here in Chiang Mai Chinese come to 85% as couples, with friends or families. I guess also in Bangkok are a large number of individual travelers. 

I have stayed in 4-5 star hotels in the region, Singapore, KL, BKK and Phuket, when my boss paid for it. When I was paying myself, I stayed in more modest guesthouses. There are a lot more Chinese in the big hotel chains. Whenever I stay in hotels like Marriott there are hordes of Chinese destroying the breakfast buffet. They put the food into their handbags.

ask your doctor what he advisors and check with your insurers

Seriously? I would rather ask on a forum, what would a Doctor or an insurer know about hotels?

I've never seen Chinese guests at Khao San road hotels/guesthouses. Shouldn't that be considered a safe area?

None at Nana hotel either. Although may have to share the buffet with some lady boys

I have a different take. Just like the Boeing 737 is probably going to be the safest plane in the sky when it's finally allowed to fly, the Chinese now are the safest group to be around.

 

1. Chinese travelers have to have a med certificate from home to enter.

2. They are being screened extra carefully here.

3. They are from ground zero, for crying out aloud. They know they are at highest risk, don't want to get sick and you can bet are taking every precaution possible inside their country and out.

 

So if you give me a choice of a breakfast buffet with a crowd of Norwegians vs. Chinese, I'll choose Chinese. Norwegians coming from one of the healthiest least polluted countries on the planet have no notion of wearing a mask, of washing their hands constantly and not touching stuff, while the Chinese ...

Actually this is a brilliant answer if that is the concern. Go up or down market, stay away from Huay Kwang and Sukhumvhit.

 

Mandrin Oriental, etc

 

Some nice little GH for b900 a night somewhere

You're just a geisha. You're not paid to have brains. Your job is merely to entertain men. I for one have found this thread quite entertaining. You should definitely stay in your home country until the virus is over, which it should be by Christmas.

Hi, which hotels or area ( Bangkok) are the safest option during  the corona virus period please ? No budget problem. 
My usual 4 * does tend to have a lot of Chinese clients and I don’t fancy the breakfast buffets at this time Thanks.

 

The airport capsule hotel....encase yourself in a germ proof, hermetically sealed unit while you enjoy the amenities that make Bangkok great. You'll have your own ventilation system and you can duct tape yourself in at night to avoid any virus particles from entering from the Chinese tourists in the next pod.

Civic Horizon is a nice hotel.  Breakfast buffet is mediocre though.  It is mostly Japanese clients.  Rooms have a little kitchen area with sink, microwave, a few dishes.

About a 2 minute walk from BTS station.  But if you are worried about getting sick you probably wouldn't be using it.

 

For the most part the fear of this virus is overblown.  Regular influenza still kills more people and people aren't going around in a panic because of it.
