Of all the high end hotels in Bangkok none can boast of a more stunning location than the awe inspiring Grande Centre Point Hotel, Terminal 21.

The hotel is located in one of the best areas of Sukhumvit road, which is perfect for all business, entertainment and leisure destinations. The hotel is actually adjacent to the Asoke Skytrain station and Sukhumvit subway interchange station, which has a direct link to Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Also linked to the hotel by direct access is the stunning 9 floor Terminal 21 shopping mall. This mall is unique as it brings an airport style layout, and local market place shopping experiences and cultures from all corners of the globe, here you can imagine just what that atmosphere in Brazil or Italy really feels like, (Arrival gate London reminded me of my strolls down the Kings Road, many years ago). Terminal 21 Mall is divided into three main zones comprising of brand name fashion outlets, food courts from around the world and an entertainment area including multiscreen cinema complex.
