This hotel is gorgeous , room was unbelievable for views .. Couldn't of asked for a better hotel, gorgeous food in the restaurant in the evening and reasonable price. Breakfast is manic however as it seems a lot of chinese stay here and they push and shove in the morning and it drove us crazy. Needs more organisation at breakfast.
The hotel is not really close to the main parts of Bangkok. We got stung coming from the airport so please do what I have recommended. From the airport get on the city line to Makasan. When here walk over to phetchuburi station it is only 5 mins. The hotel then do a free shuttle bus just outside at certain times of the day. 12.30pm , 15.30 pm are the two I remember.
If you want to get to the mainline "Siam" where you can pretty much get anywhere on the sky train. The hotel do a fee shuttle bus to phetchuburi station every hour from 6am and from here you will need to jump 2 trains to get to Siam. phetchuburi is about a ten mins walk to at night when you coming home it's not convinient. Taxi's are sooooo cheap but traffic is awful... ALWAYS get a taxi that turns its meter on though as you will get stung and NEVER ask them to take the highway as it always has traffic.
Chatachuck market is well worth a visit on a Saturday and Sunday and you can get a train from Phetchuburi station direct there without changes. Beautiful clothes... Save your shopping for this market as you can get pretty much anything at this market and it's cheap as its where everyone goes to but wholesale ....
MBK shopping mall is massive - staff there are rude and are only interested if your buying and get very rude with you when you don't wanna buy.
Grand palace - is spectacular to see but it is manic ... You can't move so don't do it in the blistering sunshine and go early so you can get out early.
Hotel though is amazing and the staff will do anything they are great .. Thanks for a great stay.
