This station is very good.
There were even guides directing foreigners to the right ticket office - students of English maybe.
However, do not believe any station ticket seller that announces no tickets left.
This is because they want the passenger to go to the agents and pay more, which results in the station ticket seller receiving kickbacks from the agents.
If they insist, and the police do not react, go to the next station up the line and buy the ticket you want there. That station does not have an arrangement with the agents.
Apart from this danger, the station is a great place to wait for a train, and you will pay Thai prices for refreshments.

While in early 20th century Europe Railway stations were erected that looked almost like cathedrals, Hua Lamphong station kept a rather modest functional profile. King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) was a modernizer and assigned Italian architect Tamagno to do the design. More than 100 years later the station still stands and functions.

The biggest changes in my experience are the (tunnel) link with the new MRT station and the air-conditioning of the main hall. It used to be bloody hot in that hall. All necessary services are provided at Hua Lamphong. There is a left-luggage provision, police station, money changer, information counters and board with arrival and departure timings in both Thai and English.

I liked the small exhibition of a Thai couple who cycled around the world. Their bikes are on show as well the itinerary of their journey.

Grand, old building resembling same structures in Europe. Quite comfortable inside with plenty of seats available and lots of cafes and restaurants. Schedule is displayed in Thai and English. Easy to buy tickets. Large screen inside displays sports or other events for those who have nothing else to do, while waiting for a train. At night, area around the station becomes bit shabby, with plenty of homeless people congregating around it (inside and outside).

Hualamphong is a wonderful train station, especially when illuminated at night.
Enjoy while it lasts because it will be closed down in the next one or two years for a bigger better one more out of town.
I took many trains from here with a sleeper train to Chiang Mai just recently. I booked the new train with new cars from China, 2nd class aircon sleeper, and the experience was really good. Can only recommend.
