Topland Hotel and Convention Center
Looming 17 storeys high next to Mittraphap Road and Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat, Topland is one of the largest and ugliest buildings in P'lok.

The city's flagship midrange hotel also boasts a large shopping and convention centre, rooftop swimming pool, spa, karaoke bar, multiple restaurants and cavernous lobby with professional, English-speaking receptionists. The rooms and hallways are beginning to show their age -- think standard business traveller fare. Worn carpets are offset somewhat by newish LCD TVs, air-con, comfortable beds, desks, minibars, sitting areas and marble features in the bathrooms. Large windows afford views of the temples and river from some rooms, and breakfast is included in the rates. The place certainly is easy to find, with an army of samlors, tuk tuks and motorbike taxis always waiting outside. Once again, the hotel's website offered rooms for 320 baht cheaper than we were quoted as walk-ins. Nearby Pailyn Hotel is set in a similarly featureless building and has more rundown rooms for around 1,000 baht a night.
