“Great buffet dinner with Bangkok skyline view”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

We had a dinner at the restaurant on the 82nd floor and it was very good. Buffet dinner for 690 Baht per person excluding drinks, it had a wide selection of Thai, Japanese, European, and Tex Mex cuisines, and plenty of seafood. Most cocktails go for 130 Baht. Good service. Amazing city skyline views. No smoking area on that level, and unfortunately we were not allowed to enter the balcony on the 81st floor to enjoy an after-dinner smoke unless we paid for a full dinner at the restaurant on the 81st floor (890 Baht per person), which I found ridiculous. I would suggest this place for large groups, small groups, families with kids. NOT a good idea for romantic dinner due to a lack of that very atmosphere you'd probably be looking for.

We enjoyed the stay in Baiyoke Sky tower, despite some of its shortcomings. The reception lobby is at 18th floor and the rooms / dining areas are located further up.

PROS-
1. It is a landmark building, being the tallest one in Thailand.
2. Great views, specially if you take rooms in space zone. Better view from buffet zones and best view from open rooftop at some 80+ floor.
3. Buffet breakfast is VERY GOOD and an elaborate spread. No problem with finding seats etc.
4. Service is reasonably efficient, though a tad impersonal.
5. Large number of malls/ street shopping options right at the entrance of the hotel. 'Shopper's paradise' - the area is.
6. Some previous comments indicated that using lifts during rush hour is a concern. Personally, I did not find it an issue. Lift for visitors (to the building and rotating rooftop, etc) was separate and living-in guests had access to independent set of lifts.
7. Access to the airport train stop, about 3-5 minutes walk.
8. Hourly shuttle service to SIAM PARAGON. A cab costs 50-70 B, if you do not take the shuttle.
9. No complaints on room amenities/bathrom/cleanliness etc.

CONS
1. Location - access streets to the hotel are perpetually thronging with people and vehicles alike, although the hotel security does a good job of managing the cabs in a manner that at any given time, cabs are available for guests.
2. Late nights, say after 11 pm the streets in the area tend to be a bit seedy. May not be a comfortable feeling for families, if you wish to remain outdoors during those hours.
3. Excessive charges for wi-fi (200B per day, if I remember correctly).
4. Reception and common areas are always busy with tourists (staying ones) and visitors. If you are looking for quiet and calm, this is not the place.

Room Tip: Rooms in Space Zone, though pricey would offer better views. Be advised though, that windows in all...

This hotel is well located just a 5 minute walk from the Airport link City line train which takes you to the airport in half an hour, thus avoiding the usual Bangkok traffic jams.

The hotel has impressive views but is also very busy and takes a while to get around the floors you need. Reception is on the 18th, breakfast on 78 or 82, and the pool on 20!

The whole hotel is looking a little worn out and could do with a refurbishment, but if you can get a good deal through one of the sites out there it's worth staying at.

The buffet breakfast was excellent with a huge array of cuisines to choose from.

I used the spa facilities which were reasonably priced and nicely done. The massage was great.

There is a street market just outside, and Indra Square (an internal shopping mall) just across the road.

Always seemed to be plenty of taxis and tuk tuks around if you want to go further afield.

The tallest building in Thailand called us to spend five days of their honeymoon. Impressive building and amazing view of the chamber floor 68, the fascinating feeling of the pool floor 20 above the city. Restaurant for breakfast is the floor 81 and there I found the biggest breakfast. All around the floor are tables with various dishes. Thai, Japanese, Chinese, American, European breakfast ... everything you could imagine and yet many dishes that you do not imagine.
The hotel is very close, five minutes walk from the Skytrain station, which connects the airport to central Bangkok in 15 minutes (five euros one way).
Baiyoke Sky Hotel is near a large bazaar, where you can find all the wonders of the world (I bought my slippers that said Google) and delicious food prepared in front of you to stall. Seafood, pasta, barbecue chicken, pork, lamb, fish, fresh fruit, fresh juices, all delicious. To me were better than anything I ate at the restaurant. Everywhere are tuk tuk drivers, who drive crazy but make you laugh when gonesc and filtered through cars, trucks and buses. Tip - negotiate the price, tuk tuk drivers ask for more but eventually accept half the original price (which I believe is the correct one, or so I like to think).
The bad is the camera that need to be refreshed: furniture, carpet, everything. Then I had the unpleasant experience WIFI. It is not free, as you'd expect from a four star hotel. Although I paid, I could not connect to the Internet. And the receptionist explained that iPad tablet is not compatible with my network and refused to return the 12 euros that I paid for a service that I used! Unacceptable!
Overall, it was an unforgettable experience, both with good and the bad.
