“So not worth it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Came here to take pictures, which is why everyone does. Not open till 6, staff is super rude, wouldn't let me and my two friends outside before 6 (even though we planned to eat lunch at their other restaurant), dress code is a joke, place is kind of a dump too. I guess the pictures would have been cool but not possible to get and not worth the hassle of dealing with all this Crap, head to a different rooftop bar, they are all over the place.

“you must do this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

get there for around 6pm (its not open until then), dress smart (no flip flops, shorts etc), pay for an expensive drink (around 500 baht) and enjoy the wonderful view for as long as you like.
and look at the steps where the hangover 2 cast sat :) no pictures allowed at the steps though :(

“IT"S WORTH THE CLIMB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

My wife is about 7" taller than I am so I tell people she's 7" tall and worth the climb. So is going to the outside floors of the Lubua..We have stayed at this hotel for 3 and 4 days twice and the tower is great. I have read some of the latest reviews and can imagine the frustration of some who is suffering because of the bad manners of others. The staff at State Tower have always been helpful and cordial. The sky Bar is a busy place and the staff certainly cope with the customers who want a drink and take a couple of photos and move on. Some think that the price of a drink should buy them the excuse to be rude and take over the small area for photos. I was there in December only to take a few photos. The views are stunning and to see the river and it's traffic from the tower is wonderful. The overhead rail transportation view is also good however all of these are better to see than photograph because of the distance and the high angle. Best are the night views and the best place for those are in the open air dining room and you need a reservation to get a table outside.
Any time during the day other than sunset is not busy and more time is allowed Once again the staff are very polite but do need to keep crowds moving and probably the high crowd levels from the movie notoriety will level out and the State Tower will be a happy place once again

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

As many other reviewers said already, this is definitely worth your money. drinks are quite expensive up there, but therefor you can enjoy the best view in Bangkok.
Some tips:
- Visit the place wearing descent clothes, no flip flops, no shorts (for men), no backpacks or plastic bags, no worn-down jeans. If you take some good clothing with you, you can change at the toilet downstairs before you go up.
- Go there around 6pm, you will be able to see the sunset and it's not gonna be too busy.
- You initially will be guided to the balcony with the lounge seats, where you can sit down and enjoy a nice cocktail. This however isn't the greatest view you'll get. Ask the for the Sky bar and restaurant, if you want to see the better part, and the personnel will guide you there.
- Enjoy your time, it really is an experience you'll remember!!
