TravelPod Member ReviewsAmari Watergate Bangkok
The hotel in terms of appearance at first glance meets expectations. On finer inspection it's apparent that it's been around for a while.
The rooftop gardens and pool area is very well maintained, but again, as found in Bangkok, there is a serious lack of waste bins.
We didn't try any of the restaurants, but the rooms were well equipped and comfortable. The mini-bar, as expected, is more expensive than elsewhere.
The staff was incredibly friendly and always willing to help, but once or twice encountered a slight language barrier.
I can't really fault the hotel, but it's located in the downtown area and not that close to all the major attractions. Unless you are prepared to walk quite a bit, I suggest you find accomodation closer.

Historical Traveler Reviews Amari Watergate Bangkok
For Pratunam lover
It's a good choice for bargain shopping and it's the best hotel in this aera.
Large lobby, for take the elevator you need your keyroom. The room are large but the quality of the wood are not exeptionally. The bathroom is nice with separate bath and shower. The best thing is the pool, even it have a little "cool" wind like every pool in Bangkok that stay on high floor but it added a really large garden on the terrace. Good quality in the bakery shop.
No problem with the service. I come with my minibus and i stopped it the large parking. The best Amari Hotel in Bangkok.
We have just returned from staying at The Amari Watergate Hotel and found the hotel to be very tired and needing renovating.Fabulous lobby and nice throughout the hotel but the rooms are outdated and very tired.The other problem was the location,on a very busy corner you literally put your life at risk trying to cross the street to or from the hotel every time you leave or come back.Bad location and dated rooms !
Best Hotel in Bangkok - AMARI WATERGATE
This hotel is the ultimate. Walk down the driveway and to the left you have the markets on the footpath. Walk to the left and you walk straight into the maze of markets. Buffet breakfast is the best, rooms exceptional. Don't forget to go to weekend market. A real experience. Also an unknown - is Disneyworld, fantastic day out. HAVE STAYED AT THIS HOTEL 5 TIMES AND WILL KEEP GOING BACK. PRIME LOCATION AND BEST HOTEL.
Love the Amari!
We love the Amari Watergate. have stayed in many other hotels in BGK but have been disappointed every time. I would stay no where else. Beautiful lobby, great food (not traditional thai though), a wonderful bakery. It's just a great place to come home to and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Yet close enough to the action to feel safe when walking to a market or the shops. Cannot reccommend this hotel highly enough! Stay there, it's great and well priced compared to some other 5 star hotels.
Great views, great staff especially in housekeeping
I stayed in this hotel in early and mid Deecember 2004. I found is clean, welcoming and the views from the window were great.
After leaving the hotel, I realised I had left a piece of jewelry of great sentimental value in the safe. I faxed from Myanmar, and was reassured it had been kept for me, which indeed it was.
My son's favourite ever hotel and favourite ever hotel breakfast! And he has a wide experience of both.
Our family were not expecting much, when we were advised by Trailfinders that this was the best value hotel in Bangkok. It was part of a chain and looked a boring high rise from the brochures. Also it was on the edge of things rather than in the centre. How wrong could we be. The situation is perfect. Close enough to everything it forced you to get out and walk a little - no great strain!
The lobby of this hotel is very attractive and luxuriously laid out and the rooms are all spacious, clean and well apppointed with good views over this exciting city. The service is second to none and all the restaurants offer excellent value though perhaps are a little too westernised for my liking. The breakfast room and breakfast is truly an experience to remember with a fabulous selection of ever flowing food. Spoils ones appetite for the rest of the day, if you are not very controlled.
Biggest highlight for us was the lovely little bakery and cafe in the front of the foyer where you could look down on the lively activity below and indulge in wonderful pastries and cakes. All at very low cost.
I would not be put off by the outside of the building. Inside it offers everything you might ask for in a hotel that is much much better then its star rating indicates. For instance we visited the Sheraton on a couple of occasions and were always really pleased to get back to the Amari Watergate. Home.
Amari Watergate has great service and very nice facilities! The room was very spacious, as was the bathroom (separate tub and shower)! The food was also good. Convenient location! Highly recommend!
Beautiful Hotel, Loved the Amari
What an amazing hotel, on the evening we arrived, Bangkok was crazy and it was like a Paradise to walk into the Amari Watergate, the staff was fantastic, the food excellent and the pool and spa area was spectacular.... we had only one night and would have stayed a week... hightly recommend it for a stopover or a holiday....
A pleasant surprise in Bangkok
We stayed at this hotel simply because of the recommendation from my travel agent. I did not know much about this hotel chain and I wrongly doubted its quality.
My view changed once we stepped in the hotel and found ourselves in the fantastic reception area.
The hotel is excellent in both its facilities and services. The room is spacious and the bath rooms has separate bath, shower and toilet areas.
The restaurants are superb. We tried the Thai and the Italian restaurants. The Thai food is excellent and the Italian food is even better. What is more, the price for the food is very reasonable.
The only drawback is that it is a bit far from the sky train station. But one needs to go no further for shopping because of its proximity to WorldTrade Centre and Big C supermarket. Given its central location in the city, it is also easy and cheap to take a taxi to almost everywhere.
It was really a pleasant surprise to find such lovely hotel in Bangkok.
Fantastic!! You must stay here!
I stayed at the Amari for three nights at the beginning of september 04 with my boyfriend (well he was my boyfriend when we arrived but my fiance when we left!). I can honestly say that the hotel was fabulous! The reception was breathtaking and in the evening two beautiful Thai ladies came to the lobby to play on harps. It was magical. Excellent service from all the staff - everyone was really helpful. I would also recommend a massage on the 8th floor-it lasted for an hour and cost next to nothing compared to UK prices-a wonderful experience in itself!.
I wouldn't only recommend that you visit this hotel if you stay in Bangkok - i would insist!!
I would suggest that you book a front facing room. We pulled the couch up to the window when we got in after a meal and watched Bangkok by night from our room, it was lovely.
Hope you enjoy it!

... un temple de style khmer qui, de loin, semble avoir été sculpté dans le granit. Mais lorsqu’on s’approche, on y découvre de belles mosaïques de porcelaine. Nous grimpons les nombreuses marches jusqu’au palier le plus élevé. Il y a beaucoup de monde, il fait encore aussi chaud, mais nous retrouvons cet enthousiasme pour les visites que nous avons si souvent éprouvé depuis le début du voyage. Entre deux visites, nous partons, sans succès, à la recherche ...
Hello again everyone!
I bet you're all really, really, really, really, REALLY excited about christmas aren't you? :) I am! I'm really hoping Santa finds me in Thailand!
I've had a really relaxing, but very interesting week in Thailand. Most of it was spent up in the north in Chiang Mai, but I came back down to Bangkok (on a very uncomfortable, cold train!) on Sunday. My friends and I went to a HUGE weekend market called Chatuchak ...
... reinzukommen noch zwei dreispurige Strassen auf russisch überqueren. Dort boten sich dann Highlights wie lebende Gänse, Hühner und andere Vogelarten neben frischen Shrimps, Fischen, Gemüsen, Gewürzen, Früchten und sonstigen Dingen. Der Geruch war vor allem im Bereich der lebenden Tiere eher "bescheiden", gehört aber auch dazu(Klongtoey Market).
Jetzt sind wir auf der Silom Road am Weg zum Lebua Tower, wo wir einen tollen Ausblick aus ...
