We arrived in Bangkok after an overnight flight and only about 3 hours of neck cramping sleep. Our hotel wasn't ready, so we dropped off our luggage and hit the streets. Finding your way around a foreign city with a different culture is hard enough any time - let alone when you're so tired you can't even remember your name. We first made our way to …

How has this hotel rated in the past?
10 floor small hotel. Its biggest advantage that it is a branch of Baioke Sky. Guests of Baiyoke Boutique have 2 times discount for visiting Sky reastaurant, museum, swimming pool (the highest in Asia - on the floor 21) and view point.
Also Boutique is situated near Baiyoke Sky, which can be seen from every point in the city. So you will never get lost.
Stafa is helpful, internet is expensive, food is great.
