Hotel Review: Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn

The Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn was the second hotel I stayed during my 9D8N trip. Centrally located in the Sathorn Business District, AirAsia hosted bloggers from all around the world in this 5-star hotel for the #AABC AirAsia Blogger Community 2015 event. With all the activities, I didn’t have much time to explore this hotel, so I will just share with you what I experienced!

Superior Room

Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn Bangkok offers 390 guest-rooms and suites, namely Superior, Superior Sky, Executive Superior Sky, Executive Deluxe, Premium Deluxe and Junior Suite. Eastin Grand Superior Room PanoramaIn a glance, you can see that the Superior room (32 sqm) is decorated in a modern residential style with subtle tones and each room has individually controlled air conditioning, LCD TV with international satellite channels, free Wi-Fi internet (Woohoo! – It’s got strong network!)  IDD telephone, tea & coffee-making facilities, hairdryer and in-room safe.Eastin Grand Superior RoomBesides the ultra comfortable king-size bed and the fully stocked mini bar, the hotel room has sockets which allows Singapore’s Type G Plug. This means no converter is needed here! Iron and ironing board is also available upon request.

Eastin Grand Bathroom PanoramaFor Eastin Grand Hotel, only Executive Deluxe, Premium Deluxe and Junior Suite has both shower and bathtub. The Superior Room’s bathroom only has shower (*cries*).  Eastin Grand Hotel BathroomLike most hotels, the toiletries include only shower caps, vanity kit, emery board, body lotion and soap bar (no toothbrush). It seems pretty common that hotels in Bangkok doesn’t provide that, so remember to bring your own toothbrush and toothpaste!

Eastin Grand Superior Room ViewDepending on where your room is, from Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn, you can either get to see the majestic Chao Praya River or the city-scape. My room (Room 2004) allow me to enjoy the panoramic view of Bangkok’s city skyline at 4199 Baht (≈SGD$164)Eastin Grand Superior Room Night ViewWhile I don’t really appreciate the day-view, I love the evening sunset view of the landscape. This is taken with just my iPhone 5S, imagine how beautiful it would be if it’s taken with an even better camera!

Breakfast Buffet at Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn: The Glass House

The Glass House Restaurant at level 5 was the place we had our breakfast buffet. Operating from 6am to 11.30pm, The Glass House is an all day dining restaurant which has sumptuous daily buffets and multi-ethnic à la carte items.
Eastin Grand Seth Lui Tony Johor KakiHere’s Seth Lui and Tony enjoying their breakfast while I stole a secret wefie. But yes, Tony caught me :P. I read on the hotel’s website describing the restaurant, saying “The Glass House at Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn Bangkok is quite simply the best. The best value, the best variety and the best fare available in Bangkok today.” Now, let’s see how true it is:Eastin Grand Glass HouseBest Variety:✓ Indeed, I was pretty impressed with the variety The Glass House has. With just the fruits, cereals and yogurts alone, they have more than 5 options for each.

Eastin Grand Glass House Breakfast BuffetWhat caught my attention was how “international” the buffet was. When most hotels state “international buffet”, it usually mean western meals with cereals, bread and butter. Here, they have Chinese dim sum, Japanese sushi and even salad bar with homemade dressing. I was spoilt for choice, thanks to the Executive Chef Stefan Nietscher.Eastin Grand Glass House Breakfast Buffet 2Best Fare: When in Thailand, eat as the Thai eats. This was my favourite corner out of all the other food. Here, you get to choose what you want in your bowl of Noodle Soup cooked on the spot. I hate to exaggerate, but when I return for a second serving (Tony had three!), it is really delicious.

Eastin Grand Glass House Breakfast Buffet 1Best Value:✓ While I did not display all the food available at The Glass House (which I believe is subjected to change from day-to-day), here’s my top 3 recommendations: The red dates bun, the machine-made mini pancakes drenched (by me) with chocolate sauce, honey and maple syrup and the authentic Thai noodle soup (add the seasonings if you like it spicy like me!). My choices were rather simple, but they are comfort food you wish go back for more!

International Breakfast Buffet: 6am – 11.30am
International Lunch Buffet: 12nn – 2.30pm (Mon- Sat: 850 Baht/pax | Sun 1,650 Baht/pax) 
Grand Weekend Buffet: 6pm – 10pm (Fri- Sun: 1,650 Baht/pax)

Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn Facilities

This is the part which I did not get to cover everything as I did not have time to request for an inspection. The facilities and amenities were located in various floors. Personally, I felt that the accessibility Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn provides really made it one of the best hotel in Bangkok. However, the lift were rather slow, and the speed was more pronounced when I was on the #AABC Photo Rally! Everyone was trying to get into the lift and it was quite frustrating! That aside, let’s go down this “lift-list” with me to check out what they have!Eastin Grand FacilitiesStarting for the top-most level, the hotel has 4 meeting rooms on the 33rd floor, offering spectacular views of the city skyline.

    That pool looks super relaxing and beautiful. Another great hotel that you’ve reviewed. I do hope to experience reviewing hotels soon. BTW are you from Singapore? DO you have suggestions with regards to super affordable hotels near the airport? Thanks 🙂

  2. PrayerFull Mum says:

    What a lovely stay and I love the wide spread for the buffet breakfast! And the rate sounds reasonable for that view 😀

  3. Hui Zi says:

    Another hotel review! How many did you all stay in total?? I never use hotel toiletries, so it doesn’t matter. But if hotels do provide, it will be a good back-up.

  4. Fernando Ceballos Lachica says:

    The place is so spacious and classy type with nice furnitures – bedding. It’s very great to stay with loved ones all through-out.

  5. Louise ღ (@louisechelle) says:

    Wow! The room was spacious and I’m glad that they had ironing boards upon request while the other hotels I’ve been to don’t allow such kind. Having a free wifi is a big plus! Especially if your job is to always be online. Looks like your really had a fun time. Good on you. 🙂

  6. Papaleng Pagulong says:

    You have a nice room. Good thing other hotel amenities are there. Whenever I am looking for a hotel to stay in, I always take the location into consideration. Near shopping malls is a good one.

  7. rochkirstin says:

    The superior room is even larger than our bedroom. It’s filled with really cool devices and the free wi-fi internet is a win. The Cantonese-Chinese restaurant also sounds promising because it’s a pleasure to taste food prepared by a master chef.

  8. I Love Paars by: Lee says:

    good looking hotel and looks really clean. its nice to sleep there after a tiring walk on touring the country/place

  9. Sunshine Kelly says:

    I love the infinity pool at Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn in Bangkok. The buffet breakfast was alright, the noodles is my preference. I had that for 2 days in a row. Great to meet you at that trip. A memorable one.

  10. Mia Foo says:

    did you go hotel-hopping in bkk recent? or did i mixed up the blogs i’ve read huh… haha! anyway this hotel looks good! having no hotel toothbrush doesn’t bother me. i’ll never use them anyway, they’re often so hard they make my gums bleed.

  11. Franc Ramon says:

    You have a really nice view from your room. It’s nice also that they have a lot of facilities for guests.

  12. Pooja Kawatra Gupta says:

    This looks perfect for a family vacation or just to have stay cation. Love their breakfast spread so yummy it is !

  13. Ling Tan says:

    ah that does look like a lovely hotel! The breakfast spread is yummilicious looking, and I have to say the pool looks pretty nice too. Do check out Siam Kempinski too – I loved it there on my last visit to BKK too. Not for nothing is Bangkok one of Singapore’s fave destination hurh 🙂

  14. Jason Panuelos says:

    Perfect place for a staycation! The food photos got me craving!! Haha! 😀

  15. Anne V says:

    Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn looks like a place worth staying. I’m zoning in on the buffet! Dimsum, Steam buns, fruits, plus Sushi! The Glass Noodle shop just seals the deal for me. 🙂

  16. Kai says:

    woah! lovely view from your hotel room. id love to have a staycation in that place.

    Kai, =

  17. Fred says:

    Wow, how many hotels did you get to stay in Bangkok? Me, I am not really picky with hotels since we are usually out going around. Just air conditioning, hot water, cable tv and free wifi is enough.

  18. Lori says:

    This hotel – and the Superior Room – looks amazing! The view is beautiful – and it looks like the restaurant is wonderful too!

  19. Elizabeth O. says:

    I love that the room looks clean! Among the amenities, I think I’ll like the swimming pool best.

  20. Girl, Unspotted says:

    I always like it when the hotel comes with a pool. However I’m not very picky with hotels either because I barely really stay inside. Unless with my husband who enjoys comfort, that’s the only time I’d splurge, hah.

  21. Amanda || Growing Up Madison says:

    That hotel looks amazing and so does that mini bar although I never ever touch anything out of there. The prices are ridiculous. 🙂

Tell me what you think!
