The location is quite nice, as there is a shopping marketing downstairs and next to the Big C supermarkets, if you enjoy night life, you can also go stairs, there are two famous bars on 56 & 59th floor, surrounding an excellent night view of Bangkok. The staff inside are polite and patient, and ready to help. The overall experience is fascinating,… Read more

This is a 3 star quality hotel with a 5 star price tag. Do not be deceived by the pictures from their website. Besides the roof top bar, restaurants & pool, the rooms were so shabby and filthy.

This is a 3 star quality hotel with a 5 star price tag. Do not be deceived by the pictures from their website. Besides the roof top bar, restaurants & pool, the rooms were so shabby and filthy. The room we stayed in was poorly maintained and dated. There were cracks in the bathroom tiles & walls; water came out from the shower door while the water was running and drenched the entire bathroom floor. Toilet holder fell apart when pulled; the sensor fell off from the door when closed. Worst of all, there was a cockroach in the bathroom! We complaint to the manager and she offered to switch to another room with the same appearance or we had to pay a steep upgrade fee for a "newly renovated" room. We wasn't aware of the old/ new room bracket when we booked but we didn't expect to get a gross room for the price we paid in a 5 star hotel. The most disappointed part was the service we received, the fact that they asked us to pay more for a better room when they weren't even meeting the minimum requirement of providing a decent room in a 5 star hotel. There are so many other options around the area and I strongly advise anyone considering this hotel to do yourself a favor and move on to the next selection because this hotel doesn't worth to ruin your trip. Run, do not walk, away from this hotel! Read less

Booked the World Family Suite. Very roomy, excellent view. Beds are comfortable. Attentive service. Large selection at the breakfast Buffett. Ask the concierge on how to access the mall, it's easy once you know.
