I and my wife spent three nights in October at the Baiyoke Sky - we had ordered a DeLuxe room in the Space Zone but got what seemed to be a junior suite - it was very large and had floor-to-ceiling windows, which is nice when you are on the 68th floor. The reception called it a "Honeymoon suite" which added a bit of romance for me and my wife.
We were welcomed with a nice decoration on the bed, and the bed and bath and washbasin was decorated with rose petals.
The room was large, the bathroom had a good shower and a bathtub and adequate space for our toiletry gear. The interiors were in fairly good shape. I am not a fan of wall-to-wall carpets, but at least this one looked clean on the surface.
The bed was a king-size, firm, we slept well. Waking up with the breathtaking view of Bangkok in the windows was amazing. Note that the windows covered the entire wall, from floor to ceiling and from left to right. We had windows facing north I think, and there was nothing obscuring the view.
Airconditioning was efficient.
Check-in was good - we arrived early, at about 6am, and didn't expect our room to be ready. They actually managed to get a room for us at 10:30 am, and we spent the time walking through the markets around the hotel, and visiting the 24-hour open café in the neighbourhood - Black Canyon Coffee I think it was.
The hotel cafe, also open 24 hours, had good coffee, an affordable Irish Coffee, good Thai dishes and good cakes. The staff was fairly attentive and nice. We also tried the fruit buffet - a good way to taste Thai fruits, and finally I got a chance to taste the Durian fruit.
Breakfast was good - a huge selection of thai and international dishes, with staff quite quick to fill up the dishes. THere were identical buffets on the 78th and 82nd floors, and we found that the dishes were a bit less warm on the 78th floor in general so we opted for the 82 floor buffet.
We didn't try any other of the hotel restaurants as we spent all our time going through the Bangkok shopping centres and eating where we happened to be.
Check-out was quick, as there is a separate check-out counter. The staff were nice.
Getting between the hotel and Suvarnabhumi airport is easiest using the airport link train which stops at Rachaprarop station just behind the hotel, with a 5-minute walk to the hotel. The train costs I think about 60 baht per person one-way, and takes about 30 minutes. DONT use the Express, this doesn't stop at Rachaprarop.
In all a very pleasant experience, and we will stay here the next time in Bangkok. But we will make sure to book a DeLuxe room in the Space zone, just in case the other reviews were about cheaper rooms.
We had no issues with the lifts as has been mentioned by other reviewers, but we may have been in advantage because it was not high season and we used the lifts only in early mornings and late evenings. When there was a group waiting for a lift, the attendants actually let us pass by the group. We never waiting more than 3-4 minutes for a lift.
