It's my 4th trip to Bangkok and based on my hubs' recommendation, I decided to book a room at Citin.
Check in was swift and we got a room at the new tower upon request.
Room size is acceptable, enough space to open up two big luggages.
Bathroom was okay but not elder-friendly as there was no handle to grab beside the bathtub. Bring your own toothbrush and toothpaste btw.
The shower was a little hard to meddle cos it's either too hot or too cold, took a while to find the "G spot".
Bed was a little too hard for my liking and the pillows too soft, okay maybe I am a fusspot.
TV channels were a great disappointment as there wasnt a single movie channel in English language, most channels were reporting news and in other languages, the Chinese movie channel (Xing Kong) which I eventually found was good but had a few 30-min advertisements in between and really pissed me off.
Couldn't find any cartoon channels so if you're bringing kids, bring your own entertainment.
My stay didnt come with breakfast but I heard the veg breakfast is pretty popular with vegetarians.
You will be spoilt for choice with food and shopping right outside the hotel, try the roadside food stalls if your stomach can take it. Platinum is within walking distance, 10min maybe. Indra Square has some shops too and if u wake at 4am u could explore the early morning market where they sell really nice and affordable clothes in wholesale prices. They start packing up the stalls around 8am cos the roads need to open up for vehicles.
May stay at Citin again this year end if they bother to review the tv channels.
