We stayed in the Emporium for a couple of nights on the way back to Australia from Covid-19 ravaged Europe.
We booked a 65m2 Deluxe City View room, which was a spacious studio with a small kitchenette. There was plenty of bench space to work at, and a small dining room. The 39th floor was quiet and the bed comfortable. The hotel is far from new and the room decor and bathroom look a bit dated, but do the job. There’s a couple of knives and forks and plates and bowls in the kitchenette, and that’s about it. There’s no other implements for cooking, and no pots or pans for the stove. A sign says other utensils may be had from Reception, but subject to availability. So don't count on doing much cooking in the apartment.
The ageing Emporium isn’t cheap either, but it’s the excellent location next to the Emporium shopping mall and Phrom Phong BTS station that keeps it afloat. The Food Court on the 4th floor in the Emporium Mall could meet your Thai food cravings for a couple of weeks.
One disappointing aspect of our visit was that although the hotel was nearly empty we were still required to pay a half day rate of 1600 baht to access our room before the official 2pm check in time. The advertised welcome drink didn’t happen either.More
