“comfortable rm, but far from town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Location: Far from town and airport, nonetheless, it is linked to the Central Plaza via the carpark, hence it is still convenient to shop and dine, and the hotel provides free shuttle service to Mochit BTS at certain hours. Chatuchak market is just one mrt station away. The hotel is about 5 to 10 minutes walk from the mrt station, you could go through Central Plaza to go back to the hotel(the back entrance of the hotel opens 24 hrs, but note that the shopping centre exit door which link to the carpark and hotel entrance closes at 10pm). Another near by shopping ctr -Union Mall (next to Central Plaza via overhead bridge) is quite a good place to shop if you are looking for local cheaper range of clothing, shoes etc. Taxi from the hotel to Chinatown cost abt 200B. Room: ok, bathroom is clean, big enough with dry floor, they offer diferent types of pillow for selection, I'm particular abt pillow hence this is a plus. Wifi in the room sucks, I have to use the wifi at the lift area, and they allow only one log in, should have at least allow 2 devices. PS, want to have simple local breakfast with clean and decent environment? the porridge at a coffee shop near by is nice, my parents love it, use exit 5 of the mrt station, walk straight along the row of shops. Overall rating, abv average, would have given a ' good' if the staff responded appropriately when I informed them of the bad wifi connection, not sure if it is due to language barriers.

Stayed for two nights on business on the way home to NZ. Very comfortable hotel with very good range of restaurants and a stunning sky top bar with a great view over the city. Staff were friendly and attentive. A 5 minute walk to the shopping Mall next door but a little way out of the centre of the city but only a half hour or so, dependent on time of day, 120 baht taxi ride to the city centre.

Excellent choice if you have to be in that area. Very reasonable price. Good service, I could check in at 830 am when I arrived from the airport. Very nice pool and good choice of restaurants. Will come back when I get the chance.

Cannot speak too highly of this Hotel. The staff were friendly and INCREDIBLE, most notably pool bar attendants, concierge and doormen... nothing was too much trouble and they all made our stay better than we imagined.
Heaps of choice re restaurants and outdoor areas to enjoy. The rooftop bar and restaurant offers incredible views, incredible food and great friendly service.
Gorgeous rooms, comfy beds and the BEST SERVICE ever.
Want to go back to Bangkok, and will only ever stay here!
This 5 star Hotel was definitely 5 star everything in our books.

Room Tip: Our room was great, 45th floor views included. I don't know what other rooms were like, but can...

Since you mention that you stay on the 45th floor I would presume that it was at our sister hotel , the Centara Grand at Central World...I will pass on your compliments to my colleagues at this property.

I stayed one night on my way to Sydney and it was for sure a very pleasent experience.
The room is very nice, so is the bathroom - I will qoute my 8 year old son "mummy we have won the lottery". And everything was very nice.
We arrived late so we ordered room service, the food was great but on the very expensive side for Thailand. Even more expensive was the minibar prices - 90 baht for s Coke which you can buy in a supermarket for 10! I am absolutely fine with higher prices on luxury hotels but this was too steep.

We booked limo pick up from the airport and that worked perfectly.

So all in all I am looking forward to my second stay here end of March.

Room was clean, bed was good and I slept like a baby, bathroom was nice. Breakfast was standard fares. There's a nice shopping complex called Central Plaza which is 5 minutes of walking. Nearest BTS station is Mochit and the hotel provide free shuttle bus to the station every hour. For me, it is a nice hotel overall, but only if you happen need to be in the area as there's nothing much here.

For muslim traveller, its quite hard to find Halal food at this part of town. Your best bet will be at Central Plaza which is a kebab stall near Tops supermarket & at JJ market near the clock tower which is a stall selling rice and such.

Meet and greet was as always when in Thailand, warm and very helpfull well trained staff. I had selected a club room on top 6 floors with the use of the club services. Rooms, bed, bathrooms very good. All food services of high standard everywhere. Good shopping attached to the hotel. But there is not much else around the hotel grounds should one wish to take a stroll, as motorways and I do mean 8 lane motorways surround you. There is however well off the walk ways a underground station that can speed you away to more easy downtown sites of which I love more than here...
Travel tip: Dont come to this hotel to use the internet it is so poor I will not return ever. Unless it is greatly improved as in this day and age is the poorest service ever had in Thailand. Not only is it not user friendly where as one has to keep constantly relog on from areas to areas with in the hotel crazy. So iphone users to ipad users or laptops you can only use one of them at any one time. If you can get on that is, so not a stable service. You Have been warned
