Lovely 5 star hotel, with gorgous fragances as you enter and move through hotel, only a couple of minor niggles. This hotel is located in the financial area, but all areas are still within reach. The sky train station is just a 15 minute walk down a side road opposite and slightly to the left of the front of hotel called saladaeng, this also takes you past a couple of restaurants and to the shops. The Italian restaurant (Zanotti)on this street is exceptional and very resonable with a very expensive feel.
The hotel itself is very large and typical luxury of a good 5 star hotel, the staff are really friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to a club room which was lovely with a hughe bed and seting area with desk and sliding doors to a luxury bathroom with walk in shower and deep tub as well as his and hers sinks. Free use of the in room safe and ability to store items in fridge without fear of triggering charges.
There is fresh fruit in the rooms and we ere given a bottle of wine as a honeymoon gift. The bed was so adorably comfortable I did not want to get out of it. The only niggle with the club upgrade was we were not permitted to use the club floorperks, not a big deal but seemed a little cheap on the hotels part to give half an upgrade.
The breakfasting restaurant had an extensive choice of cereals, breads, sushi, pancakes, fruit, thai, lots of juices, stirfrys, eggs, omelettes, bacon etc although poached eggs tasted pickled which was disapointing, obviously to much vinegar in the water. The setting is lovely overlooking a tutle pool.
There is a fabulous restaurant on the top floor called Vertigo and definately worth a trip for a once in a lifetime exeperience or romantic treat. The food is delicious and not minimalist although it is a little pricey, but you are paying for the setting also and I'd say it is worth it. Their attention to detail is excellent and you feel well looked after by the staff. The Moon bar on the top floor at the back of the restaurant is a little disapointing, as its cramped and a little worn. Just one important point I would not recommend taking small children up here or if you suffer from fear of heights maybe give it a miss. It is on the 61st floor and there is only a small waist height rialing between you and a sheer drop, you really dont wnat kids running around; one little girl had me on edge.
There is a pool on high floor approx 30 ish, its nice but very small and there are limited beds.
There is another bar at about the 5th floor which is also open aire and worth a visit at twilight for superb panoramic views.
Also as a littl treat the hotel left us momentos of our stay some evenings such as a sand filled turle toy, jasmine incsense sticks and bookmarks.
Visit the nearby park for a walk in lovely surroundings with comodo dragons walking round like ducks!
Lovely hotel would stay again, try the itallian (Zanotti on sala daeng) nearby it really is superb and luxury at a very reasonable price.
