What is the most famous view in Bangkok?
The Lebua at the State Tower, whose roof top has been seen around the world, thanks to the film the Hangover 2.
A lucky fact: It is also one of the top luxury hotels in Bangkok.
Is it worth a visit?
You certainly wouldn’t come here for an intimate stay; the Lebua Bangkok is located in an immense 67 storey tower and has 300 suites, it is from being a small scale hotel. Nevertheless, getting to pose incognito in one of its suites before climbing onto the roof in imitation of one of the most memorable scenes from Very Bad Trip is not just a pleasant experience, but an exceptional one.
The Lebua Bangkok – An Overview
The atmosphere is luxurious without being over the top (the last floor is flashy but that is understandable), featuring contemporary décor and quality materials – Lebua has constantly taken the right steps as a luxury hotel. That said, the bothersome dress code of the Sirocco, the hotel’s over ground restaurant previously regarded as the best in the city (although the arrival of the chef Clement Pellerin, who previously worked at the Waldorf Astoria Shangai might make a difference) was disappointing .
With 8 points of service and bars, there are plenty of places for you to visit (Sirocco, the Dome, Distil Bar, Sky Bar...). Small restaurants and street food stands also abound in the district in case you remain unsatisfied
The Lebua Bangkok does not do things by halves.
Expect space and lots of it (66 square metres!) even in the superior suites. You may also have a very good view of Bangkok depending on what level your room or suite is located.
You can also stroll around its surroundings (go the Mandarin Oriental for one last drink, for example) and visit the historic district of the Royal Palace and of Wat Po.
Expect a breakfast of gargantuan proportions. But hey, you have access to a swimming-pool and a fitness center, so no excuses.
And from 110$ a night + free WiFi, why not give it a go?
