The roof of Bangkok
We stayed in the the space zone of the hotel. This is the highest section of the hotel, and has a breathtaking view of the city. Our room was on the 72nd floor. The room itself was quite big and the service was very nice. Also when you book in the space zone of the hotel, a lot of things, like drinks at the sky bar and a foot-massage come bundled in the package.
The hotel also has a nice observation deck on the roof. And the Prathunam street market is right next to the hotel.
Unique Quality: Highest accomodation in south-east Asia.
Not the best but value for money
You could obviously see that this hotel was renovated from an old building, room is basic but value for money. Location wise, there's plenty of wholesale malls, shopping malls, night and day market for you to shop till you drop and within walking distance!
Unique Quality: Very beautiful and modern lobby and very near to shopping spots.
Tallest Building in Bangkok
I had read hundreds of reviews about the Baiyoke Sky and I was really happy with the choice I made. If you are a shopper then this is the place to stay - right in the heart of Pratunam and markets right outside the entrance.
The rooms were beautifully furnished and had spectacular views of the city. In the lobby there was a 24hr 711, a coffe shop, fruit buffet and restaurant. Breakfast was on the 78th floor and the assortment of food was mindblowing - Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Continental...
Housekeeping did an excellent job and they provided us with extra water every day. The beds were hard but they provided 2 pillows each, 1 hard and 1 soft so I slept well every night.
Unique Quality: Great views, excellent food, friendly staff
Directions: Pratanum District - a shoppers heaven
The tallest Bangkok structure
From Suvarnabhumi Airport, we took a cab for 900 bhat going to Bayoike Sky Hotel (Thailand tallest Structure) in the area of Pratunam market.
Greatest View in Bangkok
The Baiyoke Sky Hotel is one of the highest hotels in the world, and the resturant I think is on the 78 floor. I did 3 trips to Bangkok before I even new that there was the resturant and revolving lookout platform at the very top.With every other visit,it is one of the 1st things we do on arriving in Bangkok. It is well worth 2 trips up to the top..One in daylight,and one at night.The views are spectacular. Cost is 200 baht,but then you get a free drink to the value of 200baht in the topfloor pub.
The website of the hotel is on any of the "hotel' search pages.
Unique Quality: Best view in town
Directions: Clothes market area
Sky high living
Living in this hotel was one hell of an experience. We stayed in the space zone and had our room at the 72nd floor of the hotel. This was one huge room with an electronic safe, two single beds and a huge bathroom with a bath tub, dryer and a shower booth.
The room had huge glass windows and view from the room of the streets below was out of this world. The hotel in itself is quite an attraction. The rooftop bar at the 83rd floor and the revolving deck on the 84th floor are interesting and fun.
Unique Quality: The service and facilities of the hotel are great. We ate at the coffee shop and the food was very nice. The breakfast is also a huge and eclectic spread. The drinks at the rooftop bar were also good, although the live band was slightly loud and cheap for my taste. The view from the rooftop bar in the night is spectacular.
The hotel is a shopping complex, hence other than evenings, the corridors are quite crowded.
We had a complimentary foot massage since we were staying in the space zone. The massage was absolutely wonderful and although it was free the masseurs did not rush up on things and gave us the most relaxing massage ever. The spa is open till midnight so after shopping for the entire day a massage can be easily scheduled.
Between the two baiyokes a market is set up from 4 in the evening till 11 in the night and you can shop for quite some interesting stuff from there.
Thailand's Tallest Tower
This hotel is a tourist attraction itself. Being Thailand’s Tallest Tower, it’s an experience to see Bangkok from the hotel’s Sky Walk Revolving Roof Deck on its 84th floor. The attendants are nice and accommodating. They offered our group for a room upgrade from a Superior Room to a Junior Suite for free. The rooms are clean and have a nice view. Breakfast is always a fun time since the hotel offered a wide variety of food (Indian, Japanese, Chinese, European and Western cuisine). The location is good also since it is in the downtown area of Partunam. Just a walk away from Central World plaza, Siam Square and the Mah Boon Krong Shopping Centre. Security is also good. Most of the time police officers are visible since there is a night and morning market across the hotel. Plus ther's no cockroaches here folks!
It's ok so far
I was there recently (Sept. 11, 2007). I was doing a stopover for my flight to Dubai from Hong Kong. It was my first time in Bangkok. The location is really a turn off. I arrived in bangkok at past midnight and on my way to the hotel, I was really scared and was thinking that the taxi was taking me somewhere else but it turned out to be the right place. The hotel is situated in a market area so if you are in Bangkok for buying clothes then this hotel is for you.
They serve free buffet breakfast and when you say buffet, it is really one hell of a buffet.
We were there when the earthquake from Indonesia occured and we really felt the hotel swaying. I could hear the ceiling producing some sounds. My wife got really scared.
Overall, I could say that the hotel is an average. I really cant compare as I have not stayed at other hotels in Bangkok. However, I would prefer staying at a different hotel when coming back to Bangkok.
Unique Quality: Tallest Tower in Thailand... you could see everything from the top.
Average, but near Pratunam Market
The room here is spacious but don't expect much on the interior design.Good service, very clean rooms with five star amenities, coffee and tea maker, bathrobes with slippers etc. The bathroom was really nice, with modern showers and it was big The hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful. Also, the breakfast buffet is not bad too.
But the best thing of the hotel is its location, downstairs is the Pratunam Market and Nearby in the Pantip Plaza. Walking towards the Nearest BTS Skytrain in Ratchathewi is 15 minutes however there is a hourly free shuttle provided by the hotel.
Observation Deck on 77th floor & Sky Walk, The Roof Top Bar & Music Lounge on 83rd floor,Bangkok “Sky Restaurant” on 76th & 78th floors. Highest International buffet breakfast in Bangkok, which is serving a large variety of European, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Muslim and Thai food.
Unique Quality: The Baiyoke Sky Hotel Bangkok; rising 88-storeys above Bangkok’s skyline, is Thailand’s tallest and Bangkok’s most scenic hotel and the third-tallest all-hotel structure in the world, with 673 guest rooms.The hotel building is 309 meters tall or about the height of 182 people standing on the top of each other (total 88 floors). There are 2,060 steps from the bottom to the top. It takes over one hour to reach the top.The hotel is strategically located in the heart of downtown Bangkok, surrounded by bustling markets and various entertainment attractions. While enjoying the spectacular view of the colorful city, Bangkok from the artistically built hotel or haggling around in the famous Pratunam Area, there is also easy access to many shopping paradises in Bangkok. The Central World Plaza Bangkok, Peninsula Plaza Bangkok, Gaysorn Plaza Bangkok, Sogo Department Store, Siam Square and Siam Paragon are only within a few walking minutes from the hotel. Sky Train stations are also reachable within walking distance from hotel and will provide easy & fast access to other part of Bangkok even up to the Weekend (JJ) market, Bangkok. Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport is 25 km far from the hotel, 30 minutes drive via express way
Bangkok from the Top!
Interesting piece of info: The hotel lays claim to being the tallest tower in Thailand. Being 309 meters tall, it is said to be about the height of of 182 people standing on top of each other.
Baiyoke sky has other things going for it: location is smack in the middle of Indra, Pratunam and nearby street markets, spacious standard rooms and the revolving rooftop (with its magnificent view of Bangkok's skyline especially at night!)
Skyzone Baiyoke Sky Hotel
Baiyoke Sky is a 3 star hotel and the tallest hotel in Bangkok, the reason why it is very popular to tourists / travellers. We stayed at their Skyzone Junior Suite Room during our recent stay in Bangkok but to my disappointment, their junior suite room was more of a standard room with 14 inches tv, bad signal of cable channels, poor lightinng a a standard looking bed and matress. We could have stayed in a 4 star hotel offering the smae rate.
The only good point staying in Baiyoke Sky is the location (right on the foot of Pratunam wholesale area) plus the fact you can have a good view of the city.
We tried couple of times their sky shop restaurant. The food that they serve are really great and with big serving.
Personally , i wouldnt stay in their skyzone or spacezone rooms which are more expensive than the lower floor rooms. You will still get the same view at their viewing area if you want to get a good shot of the city.
The lobby is always crowded with guests and non guests of the hotel.
Price per night at their Junior Suite Skyzone room is about 120USD per night
Really surprised with the smooth check-in.........Staff was courteous & efficient.......traveldesk was excessively overpriced as in all hotels......Stayed in Suite which was well worth its 4000Bht....... Rooms were clean & with good view......Also lot of sunlight comin in each room was a big +......................Overall.....niceplace if u r travelling wit family...
Unique Quality: The view....& also every cabbie in bangkok know the address
Directions: ask any1....evry 1 knows this place.....
Baiyoke Sky Hotel
I did not like our stay here in Baiyoke Sky. I was very disapponted with their amenities considering that they indicated that they are a 4 star hotel. The rooms are small ang have a funny smell. They did not even provide us with a toothbrush. The breakfast buffet is ok but not really that fabulous. The only upside to staying here is that we are located in the Pratunam area so we can go out and shop/buy food. Location is good.
Unique Quality: They say that this is the tallest building in Bangkok.
Directions: in the Pratunam area
Baiyoke Sky Hotel
Have stayed here a number of times and would recommend it. It is always handy staying here as no matter where you are in the city you can see how far from your hotel you are as it is the tallest building in Bangkok.
Rooms are large and quite nice with great views of the city. The Hotel has a number of Restaurants and cocktail bar near the top of the building. Has day spa, and pool which is located on the 20th Floor. Also has small shoppping mall on bottom floors of building.
Unique Quality: It's the tallest building in Bangkok and has great views of the city. Also has open air revolving observation deck which is a must see during the day and night.
A couple minute walk to Pratunam Markets and within walking distance to the other shopping malls.
Thailand's Tallest Hotel
When my family went to Bangkok, Thailand back in June, we stayed at the Baiyoke Sky for 3 nights and 4 days. Based on my experience, I could say that we had a pleasant stay at the hotel. The staff were so friendly and courteous; always smiling and ready to give a hand even if you really didn't need it.
The hotel lobby was "fun"; no boring people, lots of visitors checking-in and checking-out. I love the small pastry shop near the reception area. Why? Because of their chocolate doughnut and ice cream. Hehe!!!
Our room was a deluxe one on the 67th floor. It wasn't that big and wasn't that small either; always clean. There were fresh sheets and towels everyday even when we really didn't ask to have them changed.
We enjoyed the daily buffet breakfast; same menu everyday but lots of varieties. I enjoyed the fish and the dumplings. Yummy!!!
The observation deck had a sort of like a museum of only-in-Thailand stuff like the tuk-tuk.
The only not-so-good thing about the hotel was all the noise going on when you step out of it. When you get out of the hotel, the first thing you would notice would be the tuk-tuk and taxi drivers already waiting and ready to make deal with the tourists. Lots of street vendors and bargain shops also lined this narrow street nearby. So, you could just imagine how it would get so busy and noisy during the day.
I'm planning to go back to Bangkok next year. And my hotel choice would be Baiyoke Sky again. I just love it. I don't care about the not-so-good-stuff. I just love Baiyoke Sky and the hotel staff.
Would I recommend this to someone? Sure!!!
Unique Quality: The breakfast lounge offers a great view of Bangkok.
Bargain shops and department stores nearby.
VERY FRIENDLY hotel staff.

Stay at Baiyoke Sky hotel
I have booked my hotel on 28th May ~ 31st May at Baiyoke Sky hotel. May I know whether the place still safe from protestor?
Re: Stay at Baiyoke Sky hotel
Your hotel is right at the Northern edge of the "seal-off" zone set by the government. If you were planning to come within the next few days, I'd be suggesting to you to stay elsewhere. But since you won't be visiting for another 2 weeks, perhaps best advice is to stay abreast of the developments (at this moment things are heating up quite a bit) and/or to find a hotel further away from the protests.
Re: Stay at Baiyoke Sky hotel
Thank you so much. Hope thing turn up well.
