The first day I waited for 1 hour to check in due to some aircon break down in my room. The staff then reluctantly upgraded my room and told me that I would have to change the room the next morning which caused lots of trouble. once you step into the room you can smell a strong smell of unpleasant stench. Furthermore the room were not make in the morning.
Outdated TV with CRT, stained WC, poor maintenance but room was comfortable for stay. The hotel is 5-7 minutes walking from Indara Square which is very helpful for shopping. Few Indian vegetarian restaurants are located near Indara Square which is helpful for vegetarian people. Excellent exchange rate is available close to this hotel. Taxis are easy to book from hotel or outside.

Excellent stays without hitch;, requested connecting room, was given a alternate luxurier room till avail the next day. Main idea was that they managed to accommodate us well initially. Overall Neat, clean n functioning rooms.
Had better dealing w Security n Porter, assisted on hailing metered taxi from street then to hail Hotel Taxi which easily would costs 4x more. they took note of your room# n Destination; Tipping them lot more beats paying to hotel Taxi. Street hawkers 7-11, Massages very closeby w MRT, Mall within walk.
This hotel is good for family without small children (<5yrs old) as the location is still a certain distance away from Platinum Mall that requires some walking and overhead bridges.
The facilities are good enough for a short getaway.
"Good but not as good as it was. Bit too expensive"
I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions but next time I will stay probably stay somewhere else. Certainly the staff are excellent and some still seem the same for many years. On my previous couple of visits I had the impression that the rooms were getting a little tired. My observation this time is that while it was perhaps 4.5 stars or a little better on my first visit in 2002 it was now comfortably settling into the 4 star (just) category while putting its prices up to those of hotels with better facilities. They seem to be relying on guest loyalty from people who remember it from its better days and only notice its slow decline upon their return after they have booked and paid. The decline is so gradual that they will probably return again because they know the place. A case of better the "devil you know than the devil you don't!"
Sky-high buildings and rock-bottom prices recommend this bustling shopping district north of downtown. The revolving observation deck of Baiyoke Tower II, Thailand's tallest building, overlooks Pratunam's vast wholesale open air fashion market. Visitors can also cool off at air-conditioned Platinum Mall or visit the night market on Ratchawithi Road near the lofty spire of Victory Monument.
