We had 7 in our group of old school friends who go on an annual trip to eat, shop and catch up. We always look out for apartments so that we have living room spaces to gather and chat late into the night.....
On our recent trip to Bangkok, we selected The Emporium Suites which was a great location and the apartments were very spacious. The front desk staff as well as the porters were very friendly and efficient. I also visited the gym a couple of times and the equipment there is well-maintained and the staff very helpful and polite. Each treadmill and cycle machine has a TV monitor so one can exercise and keep entertained at the same time. Very nice!
The location was the biggest plus as the attached shopping mall is one of the most varied in the city with a great food floor and supermarket as well as luxury brands and a great department store. The BTS train station is also about 5 minutes from the Suites and that's a great considering vehicular traffic is at snail's pace in the city.
The only slightly negative point I have re the Suites is that the lifts are terribly slow given that there are 3 lifts. Seems like the programming is a little strange - e.g. we stayed on the 32nd floor and the lift on the 33rd floor doesn't respond but rather, the other lift would come up from the ground floor and takes a while.
Having said that, overall the experience at The Emporium Suites was a very good one and I highly recommend it to all visiting Bangkok.
