Introduction
Accommodation
Prices & Booking

Introduction

This hotel in seedy Silom zone is one to be avoided. None of the rooms have great views, as the windows are rather small. All room types are 40 sqm in size and differ only in the decor and benefits offered. The roof-top 20th fllor pool will be a good place for a dip with a view, when it is finished.

The hotel has limited facilities. There is a restaurant that is adequate for breakfast.

Accommodation

Superior

The sofas in these 7th to 9th floor rooms are easily big enough for 2 people. These are a reasonable if unexciting choice of place to stay.

Superior Plus

These rooms have better decor than the Superior rooms and are located on the 10th and 11th floors. The 'view' is of the wall of the skyscraper next door, so is not worth paying extra for, and this room type is therefore not recommended.

Deluxe

These 12th to 17th floor rooms are a big improvement over the above room types, as they have better decor and an interesting feature for honeymooners. The bathroom is separated from the bedroom by just a large glass wall, so the most insatiable honeymooner can tempt the least into further amorous adventures, for which these rooms provide a variety of interesting spots - the bath, shower and large sofa provide amorous alternatives to the bed. These fun 'sexy bathrooms' are the new fashion in Bangkok hotels these days, and are being installed in many new and renovated hotels. Twin beds are possible too, and there is a curtain which can be used to make the bathroom private from the bedroom.

Executive

These are the same as the Deluxe, with the following additional benefits

  • (a) guaranteed to be on the 18th or 19th floor
  • (b) during happy hour in the bar, guests can drink as much beer as they like

These benefits aren't worth the extra money, as the views through the smallish windoes aren't great, and as there are more interesting places in Bangkok to drink than here.

Suite

These large suites are all located on corners, and can accommodate 2 extra beds. For some reason there is no TV in the living room, only one in the bedroom. This means that if parents occupy the bedroom and children the living room, there will probably be arguments over what to watch, or when to go to bed etc etc. It might seem rather fussy to be crtiticising these suites because of the lack of a second TV, but in Bangkok there is such a range of accommodation available that families can do better than book one of these units. For couples the living room isn't particularly useful and doesn't offer good views as the windows are small, so these units are not recommended for anybody.

Prices

 

The above rates are net per room per night and inclusive of service charge and breakfast for 2 people.
