Unique Quality: The thing I like best in this hotel is the daily breakfast buffet with a wide range of selection of international and local cuisine from bread to cereals and what else, my favorite.......rice. Breakfast is served from 6:00 to 10:00 a.m.
We checked into the hotel at about 12 midnight. Even at that time, the hotel lobby still had quite a buzz, I guess with other tourists who had late flights as well. The hotel is not centrally located, but it's still walkable to MBK. But I'd only suggest doing this if you don't mind the smog, humidity and noise.
It took us 30 minutes to get back to the hotel, but we got to see alot more of the Thai way of life than if we were in a taxi.
Okay I only went to this hotel because I was offered 10 days over Christmas and New Year for 100 pounds which is so cheap could'nt refuse.
The room was big and the bed comfy - bathrooom pretty good although shower was a weak affair.
Noise was a bit of an issue even on the 16th floor.
Staff pretty much left me alone - helpful to a point although a little sulky for the land of smiles. Door guys were really nice and helpful.
It is really to far away from any action for a single or young traveller.
Oh and the hairdresser screwed up my hair BIG TIME - went in for a touch up on my bonde highlights came out with 80% of my hair ginger ... many tears were shed. The management did NOTHING.
Charged nearly 3,000 baht for a freephone telepone call regarding stolen credit card - Visa will refund me but the hotel were crap about the whole thing.
Pool looked nice enough and was very quiet everytime I went past - did not bring swimsuit so could no use.
Directions: Book a transfer from airport if you are staying here you can afford it and well if you get a deal that is as cheap as mine you can still afford it.
Service is good, but somehow the hotel is far away from BTS, shoppings and the night life. Taxi is plentiful and cheap. Need a taxi ride to almost anywhere.
Unique Quality: Spacious room. Special mention to the good service from the staff who helps us to get the taxi every morning
Directions: located right in the Chinatown area
The location is abit out of the city. Always remember to bring along the hotel name card so that you can show the taxi driver where twin tower hotel is.
I stayed in a Deluxe room, but luxury was nowhere to be seen. The room, and especially the bathroom were a bit rundown. The hotel facilities are ok. Though safe and not far away from Siam Square, the area has no attractiveness at all.
Reasonable price for acceptable hotel. A little out of the way though. Beds are large and soft but extremely comfortable. In house Japanese restaurant serves acceptable food for reasonable price as well. It's a case of "you-get-what-you-pay-for"
I would recommend the Twin Towers to anyone staying in Bangkok. Its a bit out of the way, and in a tad shady area, but its a nice value. The accomodations are have an upscale feel, but for a midrange price. You have to take taxis everywhere, but the taxi drivers that pick you up at the lobby are honorable. Try to book online because it is much, much cheaper. Many of my friends stayed at hovels in Bangkok, but at the same price as the Twin Towers. It might be a 5 minute cab ride away from the action, but for a cockroach-free, amenities filled hotel room, it was worth it.
Unique Quality: Breakfast buffet each monrning, excellent staff, high-security safe deposit boxes, beyond helpful concierge, nice lounge with drink specials, women singing traditonal thai music in the evenings, pool, AWESOME massage parlor across the street (cheap and wonderful)....
We have been to bangkok couple of times, usually for a period of 5-6 days.
(tried hotels like Asia, Bangkok Palace, Pat Princess, and some other small time boutique hotels) non like
SOL Twin towers - One word to describe "Very Reasonable" and if you r a very big person, you will definately appreciate the space they provide in the hotel rm.
Its almost centrally located, few streets of MBK .... you can literally walk there, and if you take the taxis that knows the short cut, u probably pay 37b to MBK.
Tough the surroundings dont provide any form of heart stomping activities and such, one point to note:- if your stomach can keep up with the street hawking activities, you might want to try the side walk stores and is situated right in front of the hotel, host under a highway. Marvellous cook food such as beef soup, tom yam and this roast pork with fried kai lan(vege) ..hmmm to think of it, my stomach growling...they even provide home made karoake session under the bridge!
all for a miserly 100b.
Unique Quality: Unique Qualities
1) forget about the lobby and other ammenties at first site....
2) The huge and airy rooms with space for you (gals) to do your cat walk after you done your shopping.
3) very clean and a wonderful bathroom and loads of space again...
I stayed in Bangkok for two nights and this hotel provided quiet rest after tiresome tours round the city.
Unique Quality: Very friendly staff.
Very clean rooms; complimentary toiletries and drinking water provided.
You can use safe boxes for free.
There is a very nice pool.
Every night two girls perform in the hall downstairs, so you can enjoy traditional Thai music and dancing.
Hi guys, Im heading to Thailand in September and was looking at the Twin Towers hotel... Anyone know this place and what the location is like? Im looking to do some sightseeing and some shopping... Thanks!
88 New Rama VI Road, Rong Muang, Pathuwam, Bangkok - Thailand
Sol Twin Towers consists of 700 rooms and suites on 11 accommodation levels in two towers with 4 levels in the podium including the ground floor. A total of 15 levels comprising lobby, shopping/retail, banquet, and meeting rooms levels.
Price : Standardroom 1,500 THB on prepaid basis.
Location-wise, it's between a motorway and a railway line on my map, but it's not too far from the MBK shopping mall (looks like a 15 minute walk). The Skytrain and Jim Thompson's House are near to MBK. Unless that motorway is too loud, it'll probably be OK. There are plenty of hotels closer to the shops and skytrain, though.
The hotel also looks reasonably close to the Old Town - it should be a fairly short taxi ride outside of rush-hour to the Grand Palace.
