Although the Turkish Airlines in Bangkok is open 24/7, don’t show up in the middle of the night if you are hungry.
I start with that observation because Turkish lounges are known for their excellent food. Even the outstation lounge at Washington Dulles is a place I will always dine at over eating onboard airline food, if given the chance.
Well, perhaps the food is wonderful in this lounge. I just can’t say because at 4:00AM there is nothing. By the time I left, breakfast was being prepared…though it honestly did not look very nice. Perhaps the good food comes out before the Turkish flight to Istanbul. Drinks are available around the clock…
Anyway, there’s far more to this lounge than the food. There are restroom, showers, and plenty of comfortable seats. For Muslim travelers, there is a prayer room and ablution area.
But be aware that power ports are quite limited in this lounge. If you need to charge, you will find a small number of wall outlets. It’s not like in Istanbul where there are plenty of power ports on the floor.
The lounge is accessible to Priority Pass members and open 24/7.
15-minute complimentary massages are available during daytime hours…a shame I missed that.
I really cannot recommend this lounge wholeheartedly during off-peak hours since there are better Priority Pass options in Bangkok. Still, it is comfortable and was empty at 4:00 AM. If anything, it’s a decent place to sleep if you get stranded in BKK and don’t feel like leaving the airport. There are couches in the far corner.
I’ll give the lounge another check during daytime hours next time I fly through BKK.
“For Islamic travelers, there is a prayer room and ablution area.”
I think you’re looking for the word: Muslim
Curious complement to the review OMAAT just churned out for daytime service when food is around. Was the booze available at the hour you visited?
Nevertheless for a PP lounge it does look pleasant with the options and dark corner to nap in…
Booze was available.
Yeah, it is an interesting counterpoint to the OMAAT review. Which did show us this lounge also has a live cooking station too…
It was just by coincidence we published them so closely together, but I do think the “night” lounge is very different than the “day” lounge.
Definitely not complaining, it’s always nice to see different viewpoints of the same lounge.
