Introduction

If you've come to Bangkok to shop, then you could do worse than book this Siam Square zone hotel, which is located in the same huge building as the MBK mall, so you can shop till you drop, then crawl all the way back to your room in air-con comfort.
En route to your room you probably won't be tempted to tarry in the lobby, which has rather unattractive monumental architecture more reminiscent of a convention centre than a hotel.

A bit of a rub-down in the spa (image above) is a welcome tonic to those strained arm muscles, sore from lugging kilos of shopping around.

With 4 restaurants, a spa and a huge pool surrounded by lots of loungers, the hotel has enough facilities to offer the shopper between bouts of lugging bags around.

The hotel was renovated last year, so everything here is immaculate.

Accommodation

The rooms in this hotel are considerably more attractive than the shared facilities, but this isn't saying much in a big lumpy hotel like this. They aren't great value for money, but at least have a slightly Asian feel about them, feauturing prominent use of Thai fabrics as the centrepoints to designs that would otherwise be dull. All rooms face either southwest of northeast, with the northeast offering the best night-time cityscape views.

Superior 32 sqm

Located on the 15th to 28th floors, the hotel's most basic room offers well-equipped comfort, a pleasant if far from stunning decor, great views and immaculate cleanliness.
The bathrooms are of course spotless.

Deluxe 42 sqm

These rooms are located from the 9th to the 27th floor, are significantly bigger than the Superior rooms and only a little more expensive, so are recommended instead of the Superior rooms.
There are corner rooms available, but they only have a window in one wall, so don't offer views in two directions, and so aren't worth bothering with.

Executive Plus

These suites are a good if rather pricey family option. The gleaming hardwood floors contribute to the dominant brown colour scheme, which does nothing to upset the eye. Thai fabrics are built inti the walls and ceilings, contributing an attrarctively Asian feel to the suites. There is a TV in the bedroom and also one in the living room, which can contain 2 single beds.
