Baiyoke Sky Hotel
Ranked #295 of 887 Hotels in Bangkok
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We used Bangkok for stop overs during our vacation in Asia. The first two evenings of our journey was spent in the Baiyoke Sky hotel.

Public Transport - Taxi from Suvarnabhumi airport 450 baht including toll. Taxi to Don Mueang International airport 350 baht including toll. Avoid tuk tuk's, as they tend to scam travelers, and when using a taxi, ensure that you ask them to put the meter on (which by law should happen, but as expected some do not abide by this). From Baiyoke to Ko San road per taxi 76 baht.

Room - We booked into the 74th floor, which was extremely cheap and had an amazing view. Large room, with a mini bar, television and air conditioning. We received a welcome pack of chocolate, which had my husbands name on - small details we appreciated. In the evening a card was placed on our bed with the weather forecast for the following day. 'Breakfast in bed' was on time and reasonable, cost 780 baht.

Staff - From the concierge, lobby staff, assistants and cleaning staff - all were extremely friendly and ready to assist at any point.

There are various large department/wholesale stores around the hotel with an abundance of local shops. The Baiyoke has a 360 degree view point on the top floor with a bar just below, it's stunning and exceptionally fun during the evenings.

Bangkok Tips - As mentioned above, refrain from using tuk tuk's as your mode of transportation. We asked to go to the night market and in the end taken to a different market and charged more to get to the original market requested. Note that when using the taxi's t Treat the people with respect and you will receive the same in return. Taxi - Travelling to and from both airports, toll charges apply (60 baht). Try the Sang Som (Thai rum) with coke and street food (unless you have a few rats in the vicinity). Take a walk from Baiyoke to Ko San road, you will see much more and grow a deeper understanding of the people and culture.

Hotel has the tallest building in Bangkok. Offers the best city views. It is one of the older hotels on Bangkok.

Firstly the location. It is located in the central commercial district of Bangkok. It is 5 mins from the Ratchpraprop metro station, which actually connects directly to the Survarnabhumi airport (20 mins travel-time). Hotel offers a free shuttle service to this station. hotel is 10 mins walk to the skywalk, which, connects to Bangkok's best malls and shopping, viz Siam Paragon, Central World, Zen, Platinum to name a few. There is night market that starts at about 5.00pm till 11.00 pm every day, at the foot of the hotel. Restaurants like McD, KFC, various Thai and Indian places are dotted around it. Has very good massage parlours around it. Cabs and tuk-tuks are readily available from the hotel.

The hotel has awesome buffet breakfast on the 78th floor with breathtaking 360 degree views of the city. We enjoyed that very much.

Suite we got was very large, bathroom was very large too. Clean and comfortable, with an amazing view.

There is a 'family mart' in the lobby of the hotel. Hotel has a golf green area as well.

The customer service is very good. House keeping, bell service and check-in / out was also very prompt.

On the downside, the wifi had a number of issues. You get only an hour everyday, free, rest is to be paid. The hour has to be used at one-go, you cannot stagger the usage. The wifi, in our case, did not work. At 01.00am midnight, my husband (who was on a video-con with his colleagues in the US) had to make multiple trips to the reception, to sort out the issue, finally they offered their administrative log-in and 2 hours of free wifi for that period. Hotel needs major revamping when it comes to wifi services.

Overall, we got a very decent price when compared to other 4-star properties in Bangkok with breakfast, hence a good deal.

Room Tip: Higher the floor, better the views. Opt for a corner room if possible.

I have an email chain of 14 emails of me trying to verify the total price of a room with airport pick up... In fact it took so long I missed the early bird discount. However my partner and I met up here for my birthday. DO NOT use the airport pick up, it is 500% more expensive than a regular taxi. The expensive WiFi is patchy and poor. The hotel is fairly old now and the furniture, carpets and amenities are suffering. The view is wonderful however our room, the presidential suite had enormous structures totalling ruining the ambiance. Have a look at this place, it's not 'bad' but a little disappointing for us.

We stayed on the 62nd floor and the room was huge. The windows dominated the whole room from floor to ceiling and gave a fantastic view of the whole of Bangkok. Room had two double beds, lounge area, dinning area, dressing table, large flat screen TV, mini bar, complimentary tea and coffee, telephone, free wifi and safe. Bathroom was also huge with separate bath and walk in shower.

The room was amazing but the hotel could do with a facelift. The pool and public area's looked old and dirty and could certainly do with a lick of paint.

Also the area outside the hotel is not the nicest in Bangkok. There is a market outside which is ok.

The hotel is very popular with tourists wanting to see the views and therefore it is quite difficult at times to get anywhere in the lifts as non residents dominate them.

The rooma and views were amazing but the rest of the hotel and outside are not the best - not sure if I would recommend
