I thought it would be really neat to get a room high up in Bangkok's tallest hotel. If they turned the Empire State into a hotel I imagine it would be a lot like the Baioke Sky Hotel: Confusing, crowded, and chaotic. I found the staff to be very disinterested and always helping with half an ear to something else that was going on. While my room was clean it was just a bed, desk, and TV; there was no personality to the room at all. I also found that while the water pressure was great, every 30 seconds it would drop and get scolding hot. So taking a shower became an acrobatic act not to get burnt.
I found the restaurants to have really good buffets but if you needed anything it was hard to track someone down. I didn't like having to pay for internet, it was about $14 for 24hour. Each room has a router so a least the connection was really great. The hotel was only about a block from the airport train which made getting there and back to the airport very easy. The train also connects to other trains so it is only a few stops away from shopping or major tourist sites. I suggest finding a hotel near a train station but not this one.More
