Grande Centre Point Bangkok - The City at Your Feet
Boasting arguably the most advantageous address in Bangkok, the Grande Centre Point Hotel and Residence opened in late 2011 on the corner of Asoke and Sukhumvit Roads.
Guests and residents can travel to the furthest reaches of the city in less than half an hour, north, south, east or west, due to the direct access to the Metro and Skytrain stations. Covered walkways ensure that you can access the transport hub bone dry even in the heaviest of Bangkok's deluges.
And for those wishing to explore closer to home, the complex includes the swanky new Terminal 21 shopping mall, complete with restaurants, coffee shops, cinemas, a supermarket and fashion outlets galore.

Sweeping views across the city, Lake Ratchada and Benjakitti Park are provided by all 498 suites and guestrooms. Long term residents are encouraged, along with the more traditional short term guests, with rooms providing microwaves, ironing boards, upright fridge/freezers, pantries, washing machines, toasters, hairdryers, fax machines, DVD players, flat screen TVs, electric kettles and safety boxes.
Facilities include an outdoor infinity swimming pool looking out over the Asoke Sukhumvit interchange, tennis courts, a fully equipped gym, an entertainment room, a jogging track, a putting green, a mini golf driving range, an executive lounge, an aerobics studio, a pond with gazebo and a kids room.
The Grande Centre Point is the new flagship property in the Centre Point Hospitality chain. There are now nine properties dotted around the inner city in desirable locations close to amenities and transport systems, providing hotel rooms, serviced apartments and residences.
