Montien Hotel Bangkok
Travel Blogs from Bangkok
Traveled 75 miles west of Bangkok in Ratchaburi province to see the floating markets of Damnoen Saduak canal . Merchants paddle along the canal in canoes selling fresh produce fruits, and meals cooked right on the boats.
Finally arrived in Bangkok after long delay in Tokyo. Got into hotel after 2am and up early to start my adventure. Highlight of day was visit to Grand Palace. Although it was very crowded and hot,it was amazing. I had visited here some years ago, but didn't remember it being so vast. Situated in the Palace is Wat Phrae Kaew, a most sacred spot and …
Idag åt vi en härlig hotellfrukost med mängder av maträtter och olika saker att välja på. Sen tog vi en taxi för att se Royal Palace, men det var inte öppet just då. Istället gick vi vidare till Wat Pho, ett enormt tempelområde sen var det dags för lunch på MBK igen och efter det mera shopping vid Pratunam Market.
Idag gick vi upp tidigt och åkte med hotellets flygplatstransfer till flygplatsen. Där mötte vi upp mamma och Bettan (mammas barndomskamrat).
Sen tog vi taxi till Montienhotel där Ratzak mötte oss Han jobbar utanför hotellet och hälsar alla välkomna och öppnar dörrar osv. Jag har träffat honom flera ggr, så han kände igen mig med samma. Efter …
... just long enough for the people on board to jump off and the people on the dock to jump on. We missed our first boat because we thought it would stop at the dock for us. After spending only a day in Bangkok, we were off for Chiang Mai (northern Thailand, the following morning. We spent most of the day exploring the cities vast temples. Almost the exact opposite of Bangkok's noisy, overwhelming feel, Chiang Mai has a laid back, mountain aura. Later in the day, we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Montien Hotel Bangkok
I got room 1711 which had a great view. The bathroom was extra nice with light colored marble surfaces. The bathroom shelves were filled with amenities including toothbrush, shave kit, sewing kits, swabs, shampoo, etc. Great water pressure. Bathrobes and slippers provided. You can leave your shoes in a little basket in the room and they will be shined free of charge by the time you return. The room itself was similar to a Best Western in the USA (in good condition, but aging). I thought the price was a little high for a hotel which hasn't been renovated. There were blackout curtains which kept out most of the morning light. Very firm mattresses typical of Thailand. Very very quiet and well constructed building (I didn't hear any plumbing noises from the other rooms), and barely heard any other types of noise. Quiet central air conditioning worked well. The room was a bit small for two people. They gave us a fruit basket on our second day. The location is excellent; within walking distance to restaurants and other nightlife, and to the Silom Underground station, and the Sala Daeng Sky Train station. I would stay here again, but would also want to try other hotels to see if they are a better value for the money spent.
Some refurbishment please!
Our room definitely needed a good refurbishment: carpets were quite worn-out not to mention the bathroom! The hotel is located in Patpong which is the main reason why we chose to stay there. But Patpong is very chaotic at nights and very depressing during the day...on another occasion we stayed at the Siam City, which is just 10 minutes from Patpong via monorail and by far superior to Montien.
Sometimes you find exactly what you need. The Montien Surawongse Road is a reasonably priced, well-located, well-maintained hotel. This hotel is situated two blocks from the skytrain and next to a major thoroughfare. One of the biggest night markets in town is across the street. Whether you want Thai street food or Starbucks, you are in the right place.
I did not find a single fault during my stay at this hotel.
ALL the staff were extremely, and genuinely, friendly and helpful.
The interior was impressive and well-maintained.
The rooms were clean, comfortable and well equipped.
The choice and quality of the food was exceptional, and represented good value for money.
The location was ideal.
I would not hesitate to return to this hotel.
Stayed for 8 nights with my wife. Was a little aprehensive about the location but it was great. Hotel is dated, lobby is brilliant but hallways and rooms need a lot of attention.
Restaurant did a huge breakfast. Every taste is catered for, western and eastern.
Pool was OK, staff were very good and provided excellant service.
Location was a bonus, close to Skytrain, lots of restaurants and shops.
Be wary around night market but it is a fun place to check out.
I was more than impressed with this hotel. The lobby is extremely big and as soon as our taxi drew up outside the hotel, within seconds, someone had opened the car door and helped me out. Our luggage was taken from us and we were escorted to the check in desk.
Having scoured numerous guidebooks - we knew exactly what we wanted. A high standard hotel, close to the night markets, bars with the ability to check out the city. The location was perfect - two minutes walk from all we wanted but seemingly in a small quiet oasis. Rooms were furnished to a high standard - large bathroom, towels and bedding changed daily. The windows were full length with a very small balcony and were also triple glazed - very important in a city like Bangkok that seems to have a 24 hour rush hour. The staff (like all the Thai people we met), well they couldn't do enough for you. The bar area was cool and relaxing, with a pianist playing British 60s tunes mostly. We didn't eat in the restaurants, but had room service several times. This cost less than a basic pub meal in theis country but was beautifully presented and delicious. We also had a couple of fruit smoothies at the pool bar which is situated on the roof and is a great place to relax for an hour after trekking round the city. The hotel also caters for weddings -one of which was taking place during our stay - absolutely magnificent.
