We finally made it after months of fundraising towards our trip!
Mum and I arrived in Thailand to be met by two smiling faces holding a sign with our name on it-our guides have been amazing-HOTELBEDS are the ones we used. So friendly and knowledgeable of the sites, Thje Grand palace is a must see if you come to Thailand-It will blow your mind …

So after lugging our luggage up 3 flights of stairs and down again, on and off the skytrain we arrived at our old faithful-The Bel Aire princess. On arrival we were upgraded to the 16th floor and given a welcome drink-which was much needed! then we unpqacked-repacked and got a good nights sleep before heading to Chiang mai the next day.

Met Linda at airport - I had already booked into our hotel - Bel Aire Princess. What a hotel - Linda sure knows how to pick them. Taxi ride back to hotel - even Linda said hotel was fabaroonie. Complementary drink in bar after we had unpacked. Oh my Linda has brought half her wardrobe - flip-flops/shoes/handbags/jewellery (all …
You either love or hate Bangkok and we LOVED it!
It's a right old mixture! In places it stinks of fish sauce mixed with rubbish and then you've got the amazing food smells. There are stalls selling all sorts of toot from fake gear to sex toys lining the pavement, leaving hardly any room to walk down - I turned into my mum running up …

TravelPod Member ReviewsBel-Aire Princess Bangkok
The Staff have been outstanding-so sweet and just really lovely. the facilities are clean but basic -the lovely staff are there to help with everything, The hotel is not located in a good area,parts are quite dirty and there are lots of touts in the Soi. This did not detract from the hospitality we were shown by the staff.

Historical Traveler Reviews Bel-Aire Princess Bangkok
Poor service and dirty
On arrival, having booked several months before was forced to wait for around an hour to check in (at 3pm). The room had a wet patch on the floor, and the bed cover sheet was dirty. I returned to the lobby and asked them to rectify these problems, which they (with visible reluctance) said they would do - after waiting i was advised that the problems had been corrected. However, they had simply removed the bed cover bithout replacing it, and dried the carpet a bit. The worst hotel in my four stop asian holiday.
Stayed 2 nights in Feb 05. The Hotel was fine for a 3 star hotel and such a short stay. The staff were fantastic, excellent location with the Night markt and the skytrain just minutes away. I have to agree the room was large but a bit tired maybe it was that particular floor. But it did not spoil our stay. Extra mention for staff at the hotel. We arranged transportation to Hua hin through them at a very reasonable price.The driver was employed by the hotel.. what a gentleman! He picked us up from Hua hin 8 days later for our second night at the Bel Aire..at an even more resonable price.. I know he was paid but nothing was to much trouble. Would recommend this hotel for a short stay..Great staff and location..
We stayed here for 3 nights mid April and I cannot recommend it enough. I agree with all the other reviews, the location is great, the rooms are really spacious and the food in the restaurant was wonderful.
All in all, it made our stay in Bangkok very enjoyable.
Arrived in Bangkok with no accom booked and so went through the help desks in the airport arrivals area. What a mistake: paid 90 Euros for two nights for a hotel not centrally located and in poor condition. Jumped on the internet and found Bel-Aire and booked it straight away. Were intending to stay only one night before heading down the coast, but ended up staying three! Staff go out off their way to ensure your experience is pleasant. On check-in we were upgraded to a room on level 16- massive rooms,DVD player. We came back and stayed 1 night before flying back home: imagine our pleasure when checking in, we were told we had been upgraded again! Very impressive experience, very attentive staff, nothing to fault during our stay.
Just came back from a 4 days stay at this hotel. Exceeded my expectation. We were placed on the 16th floor and the room was huge. No bath tub but with the water shortages Thailand is currently experiencing, its just as well.
5 mins walk to the main road and plenty of shops and eateries around. Try the cafe inside Foodland (24 hr supermarket). Transportations are no problem. Taxis and tuktuks aplenty outside but insist that they use the meter otherwise they will quote a flat fare that is ridiculous e.g. we were quoted a flat rate of 200 Bt to go to MBK (mall) which we refused and paid only 50 Bt by meter!
Not very convenient to walk to the nearby Nana BTS Station with baby stroller as road pavement is uneven and quite narrow.
Room service (if you're dead tired to venture out again) is quick and good. Only be prepared to read your preferred dish in Thai (as written in the menu) as sometimes the staff can misunderstood the english version.
Breakfast not very interesting but adequate mix of western and asian taste.
Locality is great with many bargain souvenirs stalls along main road. Plenty of eateries. Big malls conveniently reachable by Skytrain (100 Bt for a one day pass).
All in all, enjoyed our stay in this hotel and will definitely recommend Bel Aire to anyone.
Just back from this hotel and thought it was great. Very modern lobby, large rooms and decent size pool area. Hotel was in a good location to get round Bangkok, near the sky train and also not too far from a large shopping centre.
Would stay here again if back in Bangkok
Had a great time at this hotel, Staff were pleasant and courtious!
Rooms good size, after all if you are in Bankgok you will be out and about most of the time anyway!!
Highly recommend Bel Aire Pricess
We stayed in Feb 05. This is an excellent hotel - the location is great, the rooms were quiet and huge, a lovely pool and its only 5 mins walk from the Nana Skytrain station. The staff were really friendly and helpful.
The buffet breakfast was yummy and the price was excellent. I will definately stay there when next in Bangkok and have no hesitation recommending it to anyone
Ok, maybe a little dissappointed!
Having stayed at several Bangkok hotels, I decided to try the Bel Aire Princess on my visit in November, The Lobby is very modern and welcoming, I had to wait 30 mins for the room to be made ready.
When I got in the room, I was a little dissapointed, the room was not to modern, ahd the bathroom had seen better days.
Overall a OK Hotel, maybe not four stars as stated.
A real surprise!
Picking a 3 star hotel in Bangkok was alsways a bit risky but after entering the contemporary hotel lobby and being greeted with a bow i was completly surprised!! The rooms are of 3 star standard but so comfortable and they turn down your sheets everynight with sweeties on your pillow!!! Bangkok has so much to offer all we did was eat breakfast ( a little pricey but gorgeous!) and head off until early evening. The hotel taxi service was a godsend. Agree a price and let them take you where you need to go or get the skytrain - clean, comfortable and not too busy and very very cheap!!! I would recommend this hotel to anyone - a great location, great staff and so modern. Brilliant!
oh , get a taxi to the restaurant Eat Me - amazing!!!!
would stay again no problem!
