BANGKOK PALACE HOTEL FORMER MERCURE With such a strategic location, mid-way between the Pratunam Market and the World Trade Center, in the working heart of downtown, with such a well trained staff kneeling to serve you a drink, and with its 650 comfortable rooms and suites, the three star BANGKOK PALACE HOTEL should be one of the most expensive hotels in Bangkok.
But this is actually not the case: after being backed by the reputed ACCOR group, its new Thai management works like a hard discounter. Therefore, we were surprised to receive a spacious Deluxe Room, on the Executive Floo. Of course, there is a pool, Jacuzzi, brand new fitness centre, and sauna. You will find a pleasant Lobby Lounge & Bar, just opposite the Palace Bakery. Many restaurants. Three massage parlours are welcoming the bodily weary and sybaritic guests. The Grand Ballroom, very popular for seminars, can receive up to 1,500 guests.
