Arriving to the lane of the hotel, something tells me that this hotel was not built as a hotel but as a condominium complex. The entrance is too meagre to be a 5 star hotel.
Upon checking in, it was evident that this is an after thought hotel, perhaps this is the result of 1997 economical down-turn in Bangkok, leaving many building un-finished.
The suites layout was that of a typical high-rise apartment, the balcony in the web is a mislead, as our Deluxe suites has 2 air conditioning units on it. and you have to sign a form to be responsible for yourself if you decided to jump off! well I thought of doing it when I go out to the balcony, the hot air from the units was stifling, however the view was worth it, in small doses.
There is a kitchenette like in a one-bed condo, but in a 5-star's hotel suite, this was weird. I can't find many positive things to say about the suites, accept that the bed was comfortable (but ugly) the bathroom Bvlgari amenities were good (to make up for the under average decor and cheap fixtures).
The pool next to the breakfast restaurant is small and strangely located so that not much sun will ever reach any sunbathers.
Breakfast was average, even if the flower arrangement was that of a good hotel, the overall feeling is that we were in a lower rating hotel.
The roof top restaurant was a highlight I must admit. There is a wow factor on arrival, the bar location is not for people with vertigo, the restaurant, even though not cheap I feel it was worth it, for its food and services was up to the standard of its class.
I can understand why their rooms were constantly discounted, as with the same rate you are better off going to the suites of Dusit Thani or the Emporium. Just pay a little more, Shangri-la is a much better option.
