Review of Hotel Centara Grand at CentralWorld in Bangkok

The rooftop pool and deck of the Centara Grand hotel on top of the world-class CentralWorld mall offer magnificent city views.

Centara Grand at CentralWorld – Fabulous luxury hotel in the heart of Bangkok’s shopping district.

Towering five-star hotel on top of one of Bangkok’s best malls, CentralWorld, and within walking distance of several more. The luxurious property offers resort-style facilities within the city, including a large outdoor infinity pool and sun terrace, eight eating and drinking options, one of the highest Champagne bars in the world, and spacious rooms with very comfortable beds, modern amenities, and great bathrooms. The nightlife, shopping, and dining in the neighborhood is the best in the city.

Centara Grand at CentralWorld – Local Transport

  • Metro and Bus: The nearest BTS (sky train) stations are Siam and Chitlom, both about 500m (6-8 minute walk) away. There are several bus stops around the mall. It’s easy to take a bus in Bangkok if you know the route and stop, but the conductors and drivers don’t speak English.
  • Taxis: Metered taxis are available in plenty, and the hotel staff will easily call one; or use the Grab taxi app. Tuk tuks also dot the street right outside the hotel, but they do not have meters, so bargain hard. Motorcycle taxis are available at every corner, but again, bargain hard.
