Lounge Review – State Railway of Thailand (SRT) Hua Lamphong Railway Station First Class Lounge

Typical First Class coaches at the State Railway of Thailand include private compartments with an attendant at your service. If that isn’t premium enough for you, you now get to relax before your journey if you depart from Bangkok at the First Class Lounge just beside Platform 3 of Hua Lamphong Railway Station!


After showing your ticket to the security guard at the counter, one of them personally escorts you to the lounge.



The lounge is a simple but spacious room with sofas and a TV with local channels. If you’re early for your train, you could use this to rest for a while but it’s not really necessary to make a special detour to it.


Available in this lounge is a free, clean toilet. If you hold a First Class ticket, it most certainly beats using the public toilet in the station for 3 baht per entry.


Free, cold mineral water is also available in the refrigerator. Though if you’re planning to take one for your train trip, do note that if you are travelling on the Thaksinarath, UttravidhiIsan Mankha or Isan Vattana, a bottle of mineral water will also be provided on board.


The First Class Lounge is open from 5am to 12pm and 1.30pm to 8.30pm daily. While it’s not the most premium of lounges out there, it at least offers a clean, free toilet and a place to cool off in the Bangkok heat.
