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.

Had a massive buffet breakfast (3 servings) the bulk is real haha. Now we're off to the floating markets and a few temples. Just finished the floating markets and now on the way back. Bought a leather bracelet because Sean wanted one haha and held a snake and a lema/bush baby kinda thing ...
... the water. Security this time was an actual search - good luck anyone searching my "handbag". That was obviously what they thought, as they gave it a very cursory search, noted the empty bottle, and asked if we had any liquids. When we got down to the actual gate I found another water fountain, and repeated the process. This time the water made it aboard.
They seemed to take an age to get our meal to us - probably only because we were waiting, as Ron ...
... along. You've definitely got to be paying attention or you will miss you stop. We disembark at the stop for Wat Pho and head towards the temple. Along the walkway, vendors have set up the typical stalls that we have seen elsewhere: jewelry, t-shirts, food. We grab some sort of pan fried pastry. It's rice flour based, small and round, the outside grown and crispy, the inside, boiling like the furnaces of hell. We proceed to scorch our mouths but we are too hungry ...
... done a quick bit of research we were quietly confident that our dress code was suitable. I nailed it but Hannah had a slight wardrobe malfunction! This was quickly remedied as the palace was fortunately able to sell us (along with pretty much every other group there) a non refundable sarong! Also you are basically not allowed to take anything at all in with you so have to go to the lockers deposit your entire belongings (we had to go back a few times as the closer to the palace you ...
... Home, a resort which caters for the National Park visitors. Our room is about 3m from the pool. Very flash. All our kit was wet and soggy when we pulled up and like is needed a good scrub. We hung it all around the room which ended up looking pretty untidy. Suspect we will be putting on wet shoes in the morning. Lovely traditional Thai food in a local restaurant for dinner. Early ...
