Pathumwan Princess Hotel
Travel Blogs from Bangkok
Another early start to be ready for our full day "Tiger Temple" tour pickup at 6:50am (ughh). We didn't make it to breakfast in time today. Drat
Tour took us to the same meeting point as yesterday, so we quickly went to a small shop nearby to buy some food. Again, everything was so cheap! We bought a hand of small bananas (about 10) and …
Up early (6am) to be fed and ready for our tour pickup at 8am. Chefs at breakfast were singing and our serving lady (same as from dinner the night before) remembered our names! Her name is Aor, which is apparently pronounced Awww. Haha, pretty easy for us to remember!
Today we went on a half day 3 Temple tour which also gave us a good look …
Train from the airport to central Bangkok only cost $3 for both of us. Taxi to the hotel was then only another $3. Amazingly cheap!
Discovered that we also have complimentary dinner included every day - not just breakfast! We are super impressed with the hotel so far. Room is really nice and the staff are so friendly, it's amazing!
Lady who …
We slept briefly and then woke at something like 6am. Got up and after an OK breakfast (but not The Marriott) asked what the cheapest way into town was. "Ferry", replied the hotel receptionist, "just around the corner". So being up for new experiences etc, and at the time quite excited about getting the ferry into Bangkok, we went and waited for …
Caught a Thai Airways flight back to Bangkok where we were spending our last 3 days. Stayed at Pathumwan Princess which is connected to the MBK centre (7 level shopping centre). You could say we spent a lot of our time there!!
What struck me about the hotel is all the Aussies. I don't think I heard any other accents whilst we were …

Historical Traveler Reviews Pathumwan Princess Hotel Bangkok
Have been to Bangkok many times, stayed at different hotel but this is one heaven of a hotel that makes me feel totally comfortable. Amazing services, good location, and I'm paying less than what I get. That's why this is the only hotel I've given the most tips willingly.
Whenever I leave my room, even just to go to MBK to get some snacks, my room will be well-cleaned by the time I'm back. It's unbelievable, they actually cleaned up my room, fresh towels, top up the coffee/tea within, let's say 10-15mins? This hotel should be rated 5 stars with a price of 3. Well done and PP will always be my first choice.
This hotel is ideally situated, very clean and comfortable and I would stay there again. My only gripe is that I had a pre-paid phone card for ringing home, I have used it all over the world from hotels, public phone boxes and private phones, and never paid in the country in which I've used it, until the Pathumwan Princess who made me pay a levy for each call I made. Although this hotel is well priced from our point of view they seem to think that all their clients are rich and charge accordingly.
No worries mate, book it!
Stayed here for 2 nights in late March 2005. Great location next to MBK shopping centre and close to several Skytrain stations. Large pool, well appointed rooms, spacious and spotlessly clean, comfy beds, staff have great friendly attitutde and good English skills, breakfast is very good (buffet style). You really can't go wrong with this hotel, it is excellent value and I would definitely stay here again without a moment's hesitation. Entire property is well maintained. This place is very popular with (other) Aussies and Japanese. Just do it!
My husband and I only stayed for one night in this hotel, but wished it could have been for longer. We stopped off on our way to Sydney, and loved it so much that we resolved to go again. The room was spacious and well equipped with kitchenette, large bathroom, bedroom, lobby and sitting room, and the staff could not have been more helpful, or more polite. The pool looked extremely welcoming, but unfortunately we did not have time for a swim. Next time perhaps! We ate at a very well priced Italian restaurant overlooking the pool, and the meal was delicious. The shops were very close by, and everything was perfect. Our hotel in Sydney was a real let-down after our experience at the Pathumwan Princess. Definitely somewhere to return to!
Why is it my favourite? Because I can afford it. At AUD 100 a night, it's unbelievable value, the most amazing breakfast buffets with Thai and Western food (If I stay longer than a few days, I put on serious weight), the best gym in Bangkok (new equipment, staff that help spot your weights, a sauna and steam room in the spacious change rooms), and the rooms are great and comfortable.
This was a delight. A lovely quality hotel, fantastic views, wonderful staff, and great modern facilities. We enjoyed our stay and will return.
This was my first visit to Thailand (Feb. 2004) or anywhere abroad, for that matter. I was planning on doing the cheap route. I wandered around the Koa San Road area my first night, backpack in tow, and was so tired after the 24-hour flight (we had to stop in South Korea for fuel, then HK, then BKK) that I just crashed at a $4 hotel. Yes, $4. I did not have enough Ambien to get much sleep on the harder-than-rock "bed" they supply at that price level. Since I'm almost 50, I decided to find a real hotel after that. I got a cab to MBK center (great mall!), had a coffee at Starbucks (YES!) and then found the hotel since the lobby was at one end of the mall. WOW! The staff was great, the room was very nice, great view (28th floor) and very reasonable. I paid right at $100 a night and stayed there for my entire visit (5 nights). I love the fact that it is not right on Suhkumvit, but it is on the overhead train line. You don't want to do a whole lot of walking as the sidewalks are not kept up. And the pool/hot tub area was very nice, as well. Do your tanning early...it's hotter than you know what. I highly recommend this hotel.
Have only just found Trip Advisor so this review is almost a year on but we had a super stay in the Pathumwan Princess in April 2004. The rooms were quite spacious, clean and nicely decorated with excellent facilities. The staff were extremely helpful, especially on the Concierge desk in the Lobby who is a great source of information regarding where to go and how much to pay in the taxi or tuk tuk !
We stayed at the hotel on our honeymoon and found it to be a fantastic establishment. Five star service all the way!
i stayed for 5 nights in april 2004 with my husband and 2 teenage children at the prathumwan princess hotel in bangkok. The hotel is an older style hotel but is very clean and rooms are very spacious. A pool view/city view room is a must so that you can enjoy the skyline of bangkok. It had a great pool and gym area that my family enjoyed. The breakfast buffet was very nice and so was the afternoon tea english style in the lobby. The hotel had great entertainment at night with a live band in the bar/lobby area. The best thing about this hotel is the fact that it is connected to a huge shopping centre called the MBK centre which is a mass of shops selling all the copy designer clothes and electrical stuff in the air conditioning without having to go to any markets. You could just loose yourself in this centre for days.....this hotel is a great place to stay if you like to shop till you drop.
