Part of the enjoyment of our entire RTW trip is the BUSINESS CLASS reward miles we cashed in to circle the globe. The free admittance to the various airport lounges, their free snacks and cold drinks (ummm, beer and wine). Come on, we’re wearing the same handful of clothes for a year, living out of a backpack. We only have six of …
The plan for the day was to go to the largest weekend market, Chatuchak market, and finish with all the souvenier and gift purchases. It can be reached by the Skytrain and then you just follow the crowd. The place is huge, really huge. We've heard there are maps of the place, but didn't find them. Anyway, once I got inside, I totally lost …
We wanted to see the Vinanmek Teakwood Palace and Dusit area, which we missed on our first visit to Bangkok. For the first time we had difficulty to get a taxi, as when we said the address the drivers just nodded their heads negatively and drove on. It was very strange, as they didn't even bargain. In the end we just got in one taxi and told him to …
The first day of the new year was a really lazy day. We slept till late and missed the breakfast, then sent and received Happy New Year smses home and lazed at the pool for a couple of hours. We had a couple of coffees and a light breakfast. Unfortunately the weather wasn't very sunny and we decided to check if the malls are open on Jan 1st. It …
We had no time for the beach this morning, as we had to check out at noon time and leave for the airport. And packing our luggage up to Air Asia standards was a challenge. The last time we hardly managed to keep it within the 14 kgs limit, and we had bought still more things in Phuket, so we had to throw away some old clothes and half-empty …

Historical Traveler Reviews Bangkok Palace Hotel
I recently stayed at Bangkok Palace Hotel during Christmas and it exceeded my expectations. The rooms are large and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is not the best but it's not bad, it's close the Pratunam market (the best shopping place in Bangkok), you can walk or take a short tuk-tuk ride. The breakfast spread was great- lots of choices. One thing to beware of is not to take taxis or tuk-tuks from the front of the hotel, they try to rip you off, walk down the street to the main road by the seven eleven (2 min walk) and get a taxi or tuk-tuk there. There are some great restaurants and cheap massage places near the hotel and the beer gardens is a 5 minutes walk away. I hope you enjoy your trip as much as I did! One more thing, don't use the internet at the hotel, there a places 10 times cheaper around the hotel, just go for a short walk and you'll see plenty.
Smiles all rd and very clean
My family and I stayed here for a few days and the service was exceptional .The lobby bar with live football and drinks, live music and staff who bent over backwards to serve you.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone and its central to all markets.
The Hotel is right in the centre of Bangkok, and so it has loads of traffic going past. I don't understand why people complain about this-it's Bangkok, what do they expect?
Good Stopover Hotel
Only stayed here one night on a stopover from the UK to Phuket. Public areas were very nice, bedroom was a bit tired and in need of a refurb. Breakfast was very good.
On check-out, I left the key at reception and had a porter insist that I go to the cashier to check-out (despite the fact that I had nothing to pay). I waited 10 minutes to be served at the cashier's desk whilst the two cashiers dealt with porters and ignored my presence. After giving up and going to the door to wait for our taxi, one of the porters came up and asked us to go and check-out at the cashiers desk! I declined and got into my taxi! What a rigamarole!
I found this hotel to be just what I needed after a long day. We were at the end of a two week tour of Vietnam and Laos and this was our last stop. I found the staff to be helpful, the rooms were nice and the place was quiet. As mentioned, not a lot to look at from the outside but I wasn't standing outside looking at the place the whole time. Once you got inside, it was a totally different picture. I took advantage of the massage facility and was very happy and relaxed afterwards. The pool area was great as well. The breakfast that was offered had so many choices, it was hard to find fault with. The only negative experience was during one night when I was feeling homesick, I went to the dining room one night and ordered a hamburger and fries that took well over an hour to deliver to my table. But overall, my experience with this hotel was just what I expected.
My husband and I booked a package deal as a side trip from the Philippines. Although we were told by the travel agency that this was a 5 star hotel, (obviously not), we didn't feel ripped off. We got a great price and free buffet breakfast everyday and one compulsory dinner. Not bad at all. The hotel itself needs a face lift on the outside, but it's actually quite nice on the inside. The rooms are not bad, spacious. Pretty basic. What more do you need??? I mean, if you are going to spend your vacation in the room, then maybe you might want more plush accomodations, but we just needed the room to shower and sleep, so our needs were definitely met. The hotel staff was friendly and answered any questions we had.
Booked for a week, but changed my mind when I saw the hotel & checked out the very next day. Location is really bad, close enough to the centre but really dark & dreary after night. Rooms are large but badly in need of refurbishment & very, very basic loos. At this price can find heaps of better places in Sukhumwit Road area. Defintely do not recommend this hotel.
Big Hotel, Great For The Money
Not particularly pretty from the outside, but quite plush once you're through the doors, and much better than its 3-star rating would suggest. Room was nice, minibar prices were ridiculously cheap and overall we found it great, although we did hear reports of a stupidly slow internet connection in the Business Centre, and of another couple being accused of burning the carpet in their room.
Overall, this hotel sucks. It is the worst I have ever stayed in BKK. First with the reservation, i paid for deluxe room, and they gave me a normal room! Requested a King Size bed, and they gave me 2 single beds! Then waited 1 hour to get the deluxe room. Then i got myself an extra room on the 3rd day with my gf (my gf is thai), then requested my gf to pay extra 600B!!! Called call center to check, they said its in the policy where stated "SOME" of the hotels do not accept Thai.
