We stayed here in early November for 2 nights in a deluxe sky zone room I think - we paid extra to be up higher (64th floor). First timers to Thailand and Bangkok.
Positives: amazing views from our room, and from the eateries and bars and lookout on floors 77-83!!
Amazing buffet breakfast selection! Truly international and a great introduction to different types of Asian food not seen in Australian hotels. Same comment for the seafood buffet on Saturday night - and guest pay 50% less than non guests.
Huge staff to guest ratio... Very attentive at the lifts and in eateries/bars.
Convenience store in the lobby open 24 hours - great for water purchases before you head out for the day.
2 free cold bottles of water in the fridge each day and and English copy of The Bangkok Times - both great for acclimatizing.
Nice room with great air conditioning and awesome shower pressure (although the temperature would chop and change a bit
Lobby had separate desks for checking in and out - check out was very quick! (see below for check in)
Across the road from the wholesale market building - very cheap shopping!!
155 metres from train station.
Not so positives:
This hotel has 83 floors- expect to wait for lifts. If you're not great in the heat, take cold water with you. The hallways and lifts do NOT have great air conditioning.
As well as a hotel, this place is a tourist attraction because of its height - so there are coach loads that come for the views! Again - long waits for lifts.
200 bht for 1 hour of Internet access or 400 for the day. Crazy when you can buy a prepaid sim at the airport and have unlimited Internet access for a month for 849 baht!
Public areas of the hotel (especially restaurants, bars) we found very outdated. We felt like we were back in the 80s.
Delays checking in (and that was at 8.30pm)
