Used to stay at Baiyoke Sky. Decided to stay some where near BTS. The Hotel: new, clean and comfortable. There is no Shaver considering it is 4-1/2 star hotel.
The Staff: Lousy, first the receptionist gave us a key to 24th floor, and we could not enter the room. The bell boy went downstairs to reset the Key, when we opened the door, there is someone staying in the room. Sigh... So I went down personally and was simply told that we were given wrong room. finally, we were checked into the room. I requested a twin bed but was given Double bed. The next day, I called the receptionist to ask about Breakfast Voucher. I was told that there is no voucher needed and all we need to do just tell them the room number. As I have to work, I asked my wife to go and take her breakfast with an old relative. Somehow, I was charged 1000+bath for the breakfast. I protested, but was told that my room does not include bfast. and "out of goodwill" the Manager gave 15% discount. I paid 900+ bath for my wife not so nice bfast (1000bath can get much nicer bfast or dinner at Chinatown or elsewhere).
BTS is convenient, but Tuk-Tuk and Taxi is cheaper means of transport (if you know how to bargain. For example, taking BTS to Chatuchak weekend Market cost 4persons 160Bath. But taking Taxi back to Hotel cost me 150Bath minus walks to BTS.
Tuk-tuk is about 80bath from Hotel to Siam Square. So if u are travelling by 4persons, taxi or tuk-tuk is the better means of transport.
