Historical Traveler Reviews The Twin Towers Hotel Bangkok
Excellent hotel. Would recommend it to all. For the cost, it is a steal. Although the BTS station is a few minutes walk away.. It has a good location close to Tesco.. Where u get good stuff at very reasonalble prices. If walking is not your thing, you can take a tuk-tuk for 20-30 bhat... The rooms are pretty good for the price. Although the First room we were alloted had a problem with the aircon, the hotel had the room changed for us in no time and the rooms are good. The Mini bar is a little pricey though. The pool is excellent but they charge for the gymnasium which is kind of a putoff. But overall for the money you pay it is a Very good deal. If you are staying at bangkok and love walking.. Dont think twice,,, Take the twin towers
Nothing Special, Drab Location
The Twin Towers was clean enough and the room was huge, but definitely not the best hotel we stayed at in Bangkok. Even though we got a good deal on our room through the internet, we were surprised that breakfast wasn't included. Wandering outside the hotel to find food wasn't easy either. We ended up eating Japanese ramen at the hotel which was delicious, but expensive. We were hoping for Thai food but we couldn't eat at the hotel restaurant without a reservation (unless we wanted to wait for 50 minutes). The pool was okay. The location was fine for tourist attractions (everything was accessible by taxi), but the immediate surroundings were not desirable. The area specialized in mechanic shops and other equally uninteresting businesses. So, although we slept well enough and enjoyed a spacious (and a little musty) room, the Twin Towers hotel won't be a hotel we'll visit again... (We LOVED the Amari Atrium hotel).
Highly recommended hotel
We booked this hotel through internet and got a very good rate. We found the place to be extremely neat and clean and staff was very friendly and helpful. We were traveling with our then 1 year old son and the room that we had was big enough for him to run around and even ride his small tricycle. The hotel staff went out of its way to make our stay as pleasant and memorable as possible. The location is an added advantage for this hotel, as all public transport is easily accessible (beware of chinese tuktuk drivers though who are a real pain in neck). I would highly recommend this hotel to every one travelling to Bangkok for leisure or business.
Pretty Standard Hotel
I stayed here for 2 nights in Feb. The hotel is ok for its class--3 and a half stars at most.Breakfast is varied in the big restaurant--buffet style but pretty bland.Don't expect great service either as the staff have to deal with the morning crowd. The room is big though and the TV cable programmes are alot, incl. CNN, HBO, StarMovies, etc..
The minibar prices are very reasonable (you don't have to pay US$5 for a diet coke!)and there's a local convenience store just outside the hotel if you want anything.
The nearest BTS station is National Stadium, about 15-20 mins walk away. Walking might be tough for older folks as the pavements are uneven.The area is packed with malls and food courts.
This hotel isnt a 5 star Ritz Carlton but for approx. 50USD we were MORE than satisfied. We paid an extra 5 bucks for a deluxe room (via a website). Theres a charming/relaxing/cozy feel to this hotel.
The staff are incredible and the breakfast is yummy! Location is also fantastic.
We arrived with low expectations (due to the price) but really ended up enjoying our stay. Go for it, you wont be disappointed!
Great hotel. Extremely big rooms, very clean and well maintained. Everything was functional. Breakfast is sumptuous. Only problem is with the swimming pool - though very new and clean, it is hardly in the sun due to the positioning of the "twin towers". Hence the water in the pool is pretty cold, even in the afternoons. The hotel is a good 10-15min walk to the National Stadium MRT so either be prepared to walk a fair bit each day, or to spend a couple of dollars to grab a cab. Good thing the hotel isn't located in a major traffic-jammed area so cab riding isn't a problem at all. For the price I paid (1260 baht per night per room), there isn't a better bargain in Bangkok, I can gurantee you.
This is a wonderful hotel in Bangkok, clean, new, high-quality. We stayed Aug. 30-31, and again Sept. 2-4. Lobby is fabulous! Main restaurant in Lobby isn't bad either, a little pricey but what do you expect in such a high-end hotel. Breakfast buffet is very varied, lots of food options. Rooms are great and although the TV is horrible with barely any English and a retarded remote - hey, it's Bangkok, go outside or you'll miss out on everything. The pool is small but very clean. Overall I'd stay here again, I went with a tour group and they made an excellent choice in choosing this hotel.
A nice stay
My fiancee and I stayed here for two nights at the end of July and totally loved the hotel. As far as asian hotels go, i've been to 5 star down to one star in bali, singapore, malaysia, tokyo and hong kong and think this hotel represents great value for money. We took one of the package deals advertised on their web site and received a few nice extras like breakfast, daily newspaper, fruit basket, free tuk tuk ride, welcome drink and some discounts around the hotel.
For those who want to stay in the hotel and not leave, the food is a little pricey compared to what you can get out in the various eateries and food halls around the place, but the ambiance and fine dining experience they offer make up for it. We ate in one night and has the buffet breakfast each morning and could not have been more happy.
The staff were excellent and so helpful that we managed to make the most of our stopover and will definitely be back. Their website is a good and honest representation of their hotel.

... US. He set up the Jim Thompson Foundation ( or Thai court administrator did) and continued the silk industry - and is still involved today - in his 90's. The Foundation is supported by the very revered Princess Maha Chaki Sirindhorn ( she turned 60 tloday and there are celebrations)- and the ancient art of silk weaving will hopefully continue. A lovely morning in such peaceful and beautiful environment.
Off again - taxi ...
I know a lot of you have been looking forward to this entry so I will do my best not to disappoint. As I am playing catch up still, I haven't really got into a routine yet with writing blogs again, which is the reason why I am currently sat in Crave, an expat bar which does a cracking breakfast bagel and a pretty decent cup of coffee (although it doesn't compare to Shaoxia where I am a VIP customer :P ). Anyway sit tight, fasten your seat belt and read on, Bangkok awaits ... ...
... better than the Pad Thai at Wagamamas. We also experienced how small the world really is. Whilst having dinner I was telling Chelsea how a few boys from my course at Uni are also in Bangkok. Less than a minute later we were saying hello to them all after they walked past our restaurant. Mental. A full day of travelling meant we were both looking forward to some much needed sleep and was heading back to our hotel after a few drinks at about ...
... hotels and bars nearby. In my hostel I met a group of people who I ended up staying with for a week; Amy from Australia and four guys from Wales (Merf, Jacob, Tron and Andy). On my second day at Kata Beach we all went on a boat trip to snorkel, swim and see some of Thailand's iconic beaches. We went to Maya Bay which is where the film "The Beach" was filmed, and also a cove which featured in Jurassic Park - I didn't recognise it but it was lovely for a swim! The beaches are just ...
After a great breakfast at the Sukhotai we go to nearby Lumphini Park for a walk. We are surprised to find it is inhabited by dragons, or perhaps they are just big lizards. Back to the Sukhotai to check out to move to the Hansar Hotel as we have a complimentary night to use there. While we are waiting for our taxi one of the guest relations managers comes over and ...
