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!

Went to the bus station to sort out our onwards travel! We're getting a 13 hour coach ride to Siem Reap in Cambodia tomorrow. Went to Bangkok street festival in Lompigne park and to Bangkok night market today. Feel ready to move on! Will be nice to get out of the city and hopefully somewhere a little less hectic! The food here is amazing! Sooo much delicious street food, vegetable curries and rice. Eating is the highlight of the ...
... 8211; patting people down thoroughly is an important part of the process so they’ve introduced two separate lines – one for men and one for women. No improper cross-gender patting down must go on! It seems not to have occurred to anyone that they could have a female and a male patter-downer at each line, or that I might prefer it if my male companion carry my luggage most of the way through. Very insensitive.

... was fully convinced he was about to smash the fat Norwegian's face in. At the last second he must have thought better of it, because he pulled away from his wound up punch then went and sat down. If he'd followed through on that king hit, I have no doubt the plane would have been diverted to land at the nearest airport - which I think at the time was probably Iran. I got the last part on video, but it's really too dark to see anything useful unfortunately. Luckily the rest of the ...
... One of the many beautiful buildings in the palace complex is a textiles and fashion museum dedicated to the Queen of Thailand's clothes, through the 50s and 60s she was truly a style icon and some of her outfits and jewellery were out of this world (really cool lady)! A couple of other eye-opening sights we have seen include a huge monitor lizard climbing out of one of the main city canals, it was easily over two metres long to the end of its tail, the stilted house it disappeared ...
My guidebook would have you believe that crossing borders in this region is nothing short of rocket science. The book is two years old however, and, as it turns out, a lot can change in such a short time. Southeast Asia has got with the program of the convenience traveller and now offers a variety of direct buses accross its borders. This option presented itself to me after a quick google took me to a few informative travellers' forums on the web. My aim was ...
