It was on the list of hotels we could choose within the travel package that we took. Naturally, after we read that it was the tallest hotel in Thailand, we had to go for it.

The staff seems to be quite knowledgeable in matters related to tourist needs - what tranport to take to MBK, Chatuchak, the approximate time needed and cost etc. The facilities would be at least what you would expect it to have... Souvenir, pastry shops, a revolving restaurant for great views of the city, an excellent spread for breakfast and a swimming pool on the 20th floor. The only drawback of ths hotel is its location; not near anywhere we were interested in going...

Unique Qualities: Of course, being the highest hotel in the country affords you the best view whether night or day.
In the day, you could try to make out buildings as far away as the horizon, and at night, you can have a contest to identify the various buildings scattered throughout the city.
And the bset thing was, it was COMPULSORY to have a meal at the 78th floor as that's where they serve ther breakfast! A 'dim sum' lunch buffet could be had for 300baht (S$12) with a free entry to the observatory lounge.

Address: 222 Rajprarop Road Rajhevee
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Turn left ONLY after you've passed the entrance for Indra-Regent Hotel, else the short distance is going to cost you lots of frustration - long waiting time for human traffic for just a short distance.
