Strategically located on Ratchadapisek Road. The Emerald Hotel is ideally positioned for sightseeing, shopping and nightime entertainment. The hotel is also a short drive from Suvarnabhumi Airport, a few minutes walk to the MTR subway station and ten minutes to Chatuchak Weekend market. Several embassies and banks are located within walking distance, as is the Thai Cultural Centre. Opened in November 1992 and continually upgraded, The Emerald Hotel is located in the midst of one of Bangkok’s busiest commercial and entertainment hubs. Unlike most major cities there is no “central or downtown” Bangkok. Instead, there are three or four different areas in the city which all provide shopping, entertainment and business facilities. The Emerald Hotel is in one of these areas on Rachadapisek Road, commonly abbreviated to ‘Rachada”. The Hotel is conveniently located within 2 minutes walk to one of Bangkok’s new underground (MRT) stations. Train journeys ranging from 10 to 20 minutes will take you on to some other well known areas – Sukhumvit and Siam Square. Using the MRT and the above ground Skytrain connection you can also easily get to the Chaopaya River where river cruise boats depart regularly from underneath the station. The 619 room hotel has well appointed rooms and suites in two buildings, Atrium Wing and Emerald Tower. All guest rooms and suites are luxuriously furnished and tastefully decorated in soft, pastel colours which reflect a warm comfortable and relaxing ambience. .
