If you plan to go budget shopping, this is the place to be! Just step outside and you see rows and rows of clothes shops in the Pratunam Market. Most of the stuff are designer rip offs and you might chance upon a really good deal.
Now if you plan to spend a huge amount of moolah, then Gaysorn and World centre is just nearby. And right in front of Watergate, they're constructing the Platinum Mall. watch out for it.. It's gonna be the hottest place to see or be seen.
Oh, and for Filipino celebrity hunters... this is a good place to hobnob with them. Actually bumped into Lucio Tan (yes, the billionaire) and saw that this is where actress Cherie Gil took refuge after the tsunami.
Unique Quality: Stayed in this hotel maybe more than 10 times for business travel... And if you are travelling on business, you'd be happy to note that WIFI internet is free in the lobby. But should you need your very own office/conference room, they rent the office for about 250 baht per half hour -- not a bad deal considering you get a phone, computer with all the peripherals and a decentplace to meet clients or associates. (and trust me, it's better to meet them in your own office than to have them in your room -- and see all your laundry!)
Watergate Near 711 stores is just amazing place to be... cost only 400 bhats.. about 500 bucks indian... this place has everythin in a room... double bed, AC,TV, Fridge and attached bath... The location center of Pratunam... Shopping Heaven for shopOholics.... Be there to enjoy that :)......
Directions: U can find this place near Baiyoke sky suite.... look for 711 stores and take a right turn opposite to 711 and wallla u there...

It's in my favorite location, Pratunam. This hotel open in 1993, offer really large lobby, acess of the elevator for the the room only with the electronic key.Great room with large sofa and armchair. Beautiful bathroom with separate bath and shower. Wonderful pool even like many hotels in Bangkok it have a little bit cool wind, really nice garden complete the pool.
Unique Quality: Perfect location in Pratunam next door of the bargain shoping. Good service
Directions: In Petchburi road at the entrance of Pratunam
Enjoyable stay and good service, Italian restuarant was great at a nice romantic table. Great for shopping and exploring. BTS is about 12mins walk (Ratchathewi) to go to Mo Chit for weekend market. will stay again.
While the exterior could do with a bit of cleaning, the interior is classy and elegant in design. Rooms are spacious and they have an environmentally friendly concept - you can choose not to launder your bed linen and help save water and reduce pollution caused by detergent water.
Swimming pool and spa is on the 8th storey, but too bad i didn't try them out. The staff is nice and obliging, especially when you need cabs to go to a certain location. Most help you alert the driver about your location, and that you want the meter on as well.
Drinking water is provided free of charge, but don't drink the mineral water on the bed side drawer because tat isn't free!!! The free water is in the bathroom!!! =)
Directions: Tell the cabbie its at Pratunam, cos there are many other Amari hotels nearby!
It should cost about 220baht from bangkok international airport if there is no major jam.
An excellent hotel, in a great location. Walk out the door and your into the markets for some great shopping. A lovely spacious room, friendly helpfull staff and a great breakfast. Relax in and around the lovely pool area, hard to believe your in the middle of a very busy city.
Unique Quality: High standard service.

It's also in a good location in terms of being near the shopping market, Baiyoke. For restaurants, they also have, but you need to walk a couple of minutes to get there.
Unique Quality: Facilities are good and even their staff. I like their lobby.
Amari Watergate Hotel
Is the Amari Watergate a good hotel? I'm concerned about location and nearness to the skytrain. What are other suggestions? Thanks so much.
I have not stayed at the Watergate, but have stayed at the Amari Boulevarde on Shukumvit Soi 5 and that is very close to the Nana BTS lees tha a five minute walk.
The Amari Watergate is an excellent 5 star hotel in an excellent location for shopping in the the heart of the Pratunam area.
Their website says it is about 10 mins walk to the near Skytrain. However, I recommend taking taxis in Bangkok because they are cheap and convenient.
yes, the Amari wagetergate is located near Big shopping Center such as Central World. Pratunam platinum, pantip Plaza, Bai yok 1 & 2. Super store such as Big C also locate nearby. The skytrain is also not so far away. it should take 10-15 mins to reach there.
have a great time in Thailand.
