Very nicefrom mindypickard
Fantastic Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The Only Place to Stayfrom The_Hills
The PP is located on the corner opposite the Siam Centre and has two skyrail station just outside (National Stadium & Siam Centre). Using Skyrail you can get just about anywhere in Bangers ... Chatuchak Weekend Markets, the river for Temples etc and all points in between.
There are restuarants all over the place and if you need a hit of western food there's the reliable Hard Rock Cafe just across the street.
And did I mention the breakfasts ... the best I've ever seen at a hotel. And nice pool too !!
While I'm at it if you need a suit made, want a fair price and top quality go to Siam Emporium in the Siam Centre. I've been there on my last two trips, they are exceptional (say Hi to Jit for me).
We last travelled with as a group of 4 adults and 4 kids, going back on 30th December ... without the kids. Had trouble getting into the PP as heavily booked and were going to change the dates just to stay there.
Let's just say we are very fussy and in the past have walked out of prebooked accom whilst overseas (with kids in tow) to go elsewhere. Not an issue with the PP. You won't be disappointed !!
Great value, fabulous hotel!from A TripAdvisor Member
I booked an ExecuPlus suite for just US$105, and it was worth every penny. There were 2 lower classes of rooms which were obviously cheaper but if you can stretch to this, go for the suite. It consisted of two large rooms with a sliding door inbetween. One had a kingsize bed in and the other was like a living room and had a full kitchen as well! The room was immaculately clean.
I had specifically asked for a room with a good view, which we got overlooking the pool. Granted, the city is not the prettiest I had ever looked over but nevermind!
Another bonus of booking the exucutive suite was that you have exclusive access to a lounge where you can get free nibbles and drinks, including wine at 7pm!
The gym is fantastic in the hotel with all mod cons!
This hotel is also a shopper's dream, as it has an adjoining door to a fantastic 8 floor shopping centre with every shop imaginable, but was really cheap for electronics with a whole floor dedicated to it. On the top floor there is a cinema and bowling too.
But don't forget to barter everywhere!
Not a 4-star hotel but probably a 3-starfrom A TripAdvisor Member
First of all there were major building works which had over-run by at least a month (compared to their website's announcement), making the hotel entrance non-existant & affected noise levels and access throughout.
Secondly, their bathrooms were not up to scratch by way of repairs. Thirdly, the lifts were often non-operational and were not being fixed quickly. Finally, I found their attitude (although polite) not very customer-oriented.
Although the location of the hotel is good for shopping (MBK centre) and is very central (you save on transport costs), the high price of the rooms is not in my view warranted.
We paid less than £80.00 per night for a suite on the 'executive ' floors between 8 and 10. This consisted of a huge bedroom, modern bathroom, spacious living area and a brilliant fully fitted kitchen (microwave.....etc)
The floor to ceiling views of downtown BK were, as you can imagine, excellent.
Executive rooms also allow access to the members lounge where you could get complimentary coffee, drinks, snacks, papers etc.
Staff were extremely friendly and very competent. We dined one night in the lobby bar/restaurant and the food was impeccable.
Also had a very nice rooftop (well,8th floor) outdoor pool/decking area
The 'renovations' were completely unoticeable and the lobby had an exit straight into MBK which is an experience in itself (Think bowling at 3am in a neon-lit alley), great shopping and food etc.
One of the very best hotels I've ever stayed in.
Still Greatfrom Member From Shellharbour Australia
There may be cheaper places around but this hotel is excelent value for money in an excellent location and if we return to Bangkok we will continue to stay here.
Great hotel, lovely stafffrom DublinIRL
Upon arrival I was greated by a friendly doorman who immediately took and brought my luggage upstairs.
The staff were extremely friendly and when the lady at the desk asked me for my flight times for departure she offered to give me a late check out of 6pm for no extra charge (usually half the room rate), which was a great help as my flight home was at 2.30 am.
The room was huge (execusuite), great value for money and very clean.
The location was also great, right in the centre of Bangkok and a taxi to any of the major attractions was not even 0.80€.
I would highly recommend this hotels the business travellers as well as families and holiday makers. I would definitely go back.

Top Local Tips for Bangkok
Tuk Tuks and Skytrain The skytrain is a cheap way to get around, around 20 Baht. It is clean and safe. Grab a Tuk Tuk to take you to the local night markets, but barter the price. The later it gets the more they want to charge you. For example it cost three of us 100 Baht total to get to the markets, but they wanted to charge 400 Baht to get home. We got them down to 150.
Watch out for grifters Be wary of anyone approaching and offering to show you around whether in taxi, tut tut or on foot!! There are scammers everywhere - although they are very nice about it you will inevitible part with money!
Take a trip to the MBK Centre If, like me, you don't want to spend loads of money on clothes and presents, and you're not bothered about kosha designer gear, then a shpooing trip to the MBK Centre in Siam is a must. There are floors and floors of shops selling everything from furniture to clothes to gold to traditional Thai tat. There's also a floor full of food stalls selling cheap meals so you can re-charge your batteries. The Centre is easily found at the end of the SkyTrain. It gets really busy on a weekend, though.
