Historical Traveler Reviews Narai Hotel Bangkok
Clean and reasonably priced, but don't expect a warm welcome from the front desk
The Narai Hotel served our needs for a Bangkok hotel quite well. It was reasonably priced, the room was nice and clean (the housekeeping staff was lovely), and the breakfast buffet was pretty good. We decided to go for the Deluxe room, and we were quite pleased with the big bed and very functional space. However, we were a bit disappointed by the reception at the front desk - we'd heard such wonderful things about Thai hospitality and were surprised by how busy and overworked the cashiers seemed to be. If we'd only stayed in Bangkok during our trip, this would have left us with a less-than-fabulous impression of Thai hospitality - which would have been a terrible shame given our fabulous experiences elsewhere in the country.
Well furnished but be careful with your belongings
I stayed in Narai with 2 other girlfriends for 3 nights in July.
When we reached the hotel late after midnight and we noticed that the lights in the lobby were off, we gather that the hotel was probably trying to save some electricity. The dark lobby doesn't bother us but there was this smell of old furniture which did not leave us with a good first impression.
The breakfast was fine although I cannot say that it provides you with variety but adequate. On our second day, when we came back from our dinner, we realized that our room was searched and I lost my MP3 player and my friend lost her cellphone. We reported this to the hotel but there was nothing much they could do other than bringing us to the police station to file a report. The most ridiculous thing was that the Head of Security actually gave us a lame story that it could be the works of "Asian Gangsters". We wrote in to the hotel to ask for an explanation after we came home but did not get a respond till now. We are truly disappointed and never want to visit again.
I spent three nights which I had paid for in advance, which I should have just moved and lost the money. The hotel receptionist was rude, I had problems bringing my Thai girlfriend back to the hotel in the evening even though she had checked in with me. The breakfast was awful, the rooms old and smoky. I complained to the manager but he didn't even come back to me.
An all round bad experience.
Oh !!! NON
In my return journey to Europe from Australia, I spend 3 nights at NARAI hotel ( silom road ) . Back site rooms, dark, and 2 stars furniture. Bathrooms 1 star.
Breakfast restaurant, huge but the selection was big also. Breakfast was good, very good.
The pool, if you find it..., is a big hole with water...no ambiance, nothing, the gym dark and no people,its not easy to find it.
Again... no way!!
Narai good location
Good hotel, friendly staff, good location. Stayed here 5 nights, lots of metered taxi and 'tuk-tuk' (three wheeled taxi) waiting in the lobby. Nearby with many shops- crafts, food, tailors and 7-11 stores. The sky train is about 10 - 15 minutes walk. Should try Silom seafood village (less than 10 mins walk) good food, services and live cultural performance provided. Overall Bangkok is different, hot, hectic, cultural and polluted.
Loved the Narai
Fantastic Hotel,location very good too,renovated rooms on the lower floors are great.We spent nearly 10 nights in this hotel which is really a good deal for the Business and Leisure traveller
Can't really go wrong
Stayed there for one night this February and was pleased with the hotel overall. We had a suite that was quite clean (carpet was a little tired, but that's not a big deal) and well furnished. The bathroom was nice but a seperate shower stall would have been nice. The service wasn't bad, and the room service we ordered arrived as expected.
Overall, it's not the sort of hotel you'll fall in love with, but you can't really go wrong with this choice either.
I stayed at Narai few years ago (2002) for two weeks and I was surprised how good it was. It was cheap, but still a very classy hotel. Very good service and clean rooms. The breakfast was exellent with fresh papaya's and watermelons. The pool was very good and you could just dip there quickly when vevr you wanted.
The best thing about Narai was room service, wich was cheap and gorgeous. The best was the fresh fruit platter and chicken with cashew nuts. I recommend it!
Nice and comfy hotel
I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights with my husband in January 2004. The hotel is on Silom Road, so it is easy to get everywhere. The staff is very nice and friendly and I wouldn`t complain about anything. Breakfast was good and housekeeping as well. We dined downstairs one night and food was very good - a little bit expensive though... I would stay there again when visiting Bangkok!

... me) by eating scorpion, which tastes rather surprisingly like crispy chicken skin. Not so nice when you're picking out pieces of claw later on... Whilst in Bangkok we've managed to haggle in the local markets, the prices are insane here. As a westerner you really can get comfortably by on very little. We treated ourselves to massages from a parlour down the street; an experience not to be missed whilst in Thailand's capital. Upon asking for a head, neck ...

Turns out, Wattana has a rather large chalk board for me to use every Tuesday, whilst Becky has a reasonable sized white board. Apparently she won't swap with me. The second problem feels like it has been dealt with, but it is always hard to tell with these things. I've taught two days at schools now and I have a fairly reasonable ...

We then caught a Tuk tuk to the Navy Club and had a delicious lunch of Chicken & Cashew Nuts, Pad Thai, Pineapple Rice and a Coconut and Chicken Soup. We walked through a market to the edge of the river where a long tail boat was waiting for us. We went down the ...

It was super nice and we watched The Hobbit Part 3. Before the movie everyone had to stand up and salute the King of Thailand to a propaganda video -- very crazy. We came back home for our last dinner all together -- ...
which was included in the ticket and watched the sun go down. We watched the
city transform within 30 minutes and went back up to see Bangkok at night. The
views were amazing and I am so glad we chose that one rather than the countless
others in Bangkok.
The next day I planned to stay on the famous Kho San Road.
It was at the other side of the city and so got a 30 minute taxi journey there
for £3. In the day we ...
