Baiyoke Sky Hotel
Ranked #297 of 881 Hotels in Bangkok
Reviewed October 7, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Space zone definitely. Our room on 68th was facing north and had an unobscured view.

This hotel is right in the heart of shopping and entertainment area. Shopaholics will love it but you must bargain. The hotel was very good and it always seems to be full. The rooms were very clean and large. The only problem that we found was keep changing lifts to different floors. then back down again to change to go up. The top of the tower was great good views of Bangkok. The restaurants were very good with massive selection. We paid for breakfast extra but was worth the cost. I did not like paying for internet because sometimes they give it free if you buy from their webpage. If you buy from other Web pages you get it much cheaper. Don't go straight to the hotel they charge the earth. I would stay again

Room Tip: If you can afford it go for the sky rooms.

For a first timer in Bangkok, i should say Baiyoke Sky is a must see for its revolving observation deck. Great view.As for the hotel itself, it pales in comparison to other newer high rise hotels in the city. It's near the phaya thai station and the pratunam night market (just outside the hotel) where cheap goods/clothing are sold. We paid around 950 baht which includes the buffet dinner. For the dinner, I recommend the Chinese Buffet it being the best seller. We tried the international buffet though and we were quite pleased. Downside is we have to buy the drinks ( not included in the buffet fee) coupled with service charge that really pissed me off. They could have provided some iced tea like the one we tried in Siem Reap. Conclusion-i did not regret we've tried it-just for the sake of the experience. I don'tt hink we'll come back though.

After coming from the relaxing beaches of Hua Hin, perhaps we were not mentally ready for this hub of activity. The hotel was so so so busy and the service was quite slow and impersonal as a result. The food in the chinese buffet was just dreadful and freezing cold, and they started closing the restaurant while we were eating even though they had told us it would remain open.

Beds not very comfortable, the coffee was exceptional in the cafe downstairs and the pool was average. Basically, would not return.

The view from the rooms and the observation deck is just amazing. Bangkok city in the night looks fabulous from the 84th floor observation deck.
The rooms though were below expectations and the getting to the restaurants takes a lot of pain for waiting and changing 3 elevators.
Overall an average place with the best view of the city, nothing less was expected from the tallest tower of Thailand.

Room Tip: Higher floors will give you the best view.

We were only staying here for an overnight and rather than burn PC points, figured we'd try one of the tallest hotels. Booked a Jr. Suite in the SkyZone - 73rd floor. View was insane. Room - definitely needs a remodel and a steam clean - stained carpets - not a functional floor plan. Being that high, we didn't try the observation deck or anything else. There was a fruit market in the lobby that looked very good.

One big scam - had some friends that we tried to meet up with in Bangkok. Went to the hotel cab stand - the guy running it was in cahoots with the drivers. Told them where we wanted to go and instead he tried to sell my wife and I some ping pong sex package - really - don't even ask. No thanks - I went back and had a few words with the hotel employee.

Other than that - this place gets the job done and has a crazy view - but not much else.

Room Tip: Jr. Suite Skyzone had a good view.

I stayed in this hotel for 4 Nights.
We stayed in Junior Suite Room / 74th floor ; Interior of the rooms are boring..I mean i could have been more better. BUT BUT BUT the LOCATION OF THE HOTEL IS FANTASTIC.

Located with in Indira Square / 2 Minutes walk from Pratunam Market.

Buffet spread for veggies is really bad..i stayed for 5 Days & was sick of having same b'fast daily.... I mean they should change the menu daily.

Overall a Fantastic choice - Apart from the b'fast issue.

Room Tip: Take Junior Suite...74th Floor and see the entire BKK from your room with a HUGE window...
