The Skyview Restaurant Sweet and helpful staff, two for one bottled wine (😊🖒) and nice live music fitted to the atmosphere in the restaurant. Of course a beautiful view and with no seating-time (that day) it was possible to see the whole city in just one dinner ;-) The food was fine. Everything was more or less perfect :-)

Didn't stay here but checked out the view from revolving restaurant which wasn't revolving when we were there staff were a little bit rude as I think we arrived for just a drink and to take in the view while they were setting up for a function not made to feel welcome at all. Over priced drinks as well

For our first time in Bangkok what an experience. Chinatown is an amazing hive of activity all the time. Loved it. The hotel is comfortable with a load of eating varieties under one roof, the revolving restaurant is a must what a wonderful view of the city at night. The roof top pool is a great addition for a cool... More

I can't believe I spent two nights in this hotel: advised from my travel agent for my honeymoon, it is the biggest regret of my trip! Room torn and dirty, windows in horrific conditions, staff unhelpful and non-empathic at all. Avoid at all cost! (avoid also Chinatown area because it is really disgusting, there is so much better in Bangkok)

This hotel is 2 star by western standards, not worth the ridiculous charge rates. What a horrible stay I had here, within the first hour I was dreading staying there 3 nights. Upon checkin the guy barley looked at me, just handed me key & went about doing other things. Okay, it's 11pm, guess I'll let that bad intro slip....Get... More

The hotel has been done to a high standard. Unfortunately this must of been a good few years ago. The reception and entrance area is very nice, with lots of helpful friendly staff. The dining staff were a little miserable, and not very friendly though. The bedroom was nice but dated, as was the bathroom. Could do with a deep... More

If we had gone to the Grand China 20 years ago I think we would have been amazed. Nothing wrong with the hotel - was clean and good service; it just felt like the rooms, bars and restaurants were tired and worn out. WiFi is incredibly slow. Location is superb - we could walk down to the ferry and see... More

Friendly staff helped us organise our next flight, amazing views from the 20th floor, and super comfy bed. Stayed in room 2005 which had a slight smell of mildew but humidity is so high it's no surprise. Air con worked perfectly and breakfast was delicious!

Staying in Chinatown / Yaowarat

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During the day, the main street and its small alleyways are filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and all-day markets. The real action, however, happens after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast on some of the best street food in town. Escape the chaos by venturing a little further from the main road and discover hidden shrines, friendly locals and daily life in its purest form.
