Is Novotel Suvarnabhumi Bangkok Airport hotel the largest hotel lobby in the world?

Here are some numbers that'll put your head in the clouds ...

The rather new Novotel Suvannabum Soufarnapoom Suvarnabhumi hotel boasts the largest lobby of any hotel in the world. Not just of any Bangkok hotel, we're talking worldwide.

Its two buildings covering 10.5 hectares are joined by a HUMONGOUS glass atrium soaring to five stories in height.

The lobby itself covers 2,800 square metres, jing jing. That's roughly half a football field!

The bad news is guests have to bring a tent and camp there. Not a bad idea, but no ... I jest. The hotel's charming PR lady tells me that actually the hotel has rooms ... 612 of them, in fact.

Perfect if you need to be close to the airport ... or at least within 10.5 hectares of it. And don't forget with the new Airport Link (that's the new Bangkok airport train), you can be downtown in air-conditioned comfort within 17 minutes for less than 100 baht.

  1. Wow that is really cool. Having that kind of lobby in a hotel is really a great honor. Hope I can see it in person. Thanks for sharing it.
