I love Holiday Inn Bangkok
Stay for 4 days. Been around many hotels in Bangkok. Best ever. New and comfortable rooms. Friendly and very helpful staff. Location is the best, next to sky train, shopping within walking distance. Definately my hotel for the next BKK trip. Note: hotel just renovated, very thing is new and clean, modern look. the shower is fantastic. check it out.
We have just returned from a holiday in Thailand which started at the Holiday Inn in Bangkok. It started badly! We arrived around 5 pm after a long flight and simply wanted a shower and to unpack. First we were told that there was a smoking room for us but it was not ready, we had booked a non-smoking room. We were then told that the hotel was full and that there was no room available, either smoking or non-smoking but if we would like to go and have dinner they would see what they could do. Fortunately for us we had booked through Kuoni who had an office in the hotel and sorted it out for us.
Checking out was also a bad experience as we arrived at the front desk 15 minutes before our car to the airport was due and waited behind a small group of Spaniards trying to check out. Two people were helping them and one was standing around doing nothing so I asked him if he could check us out but he said he did not have the password. I asked him to get someone who could help us as we would be late for our taxi and he brought back a lady wearing a 'Duty Manager' badge who completely ignored us! She did the refusing to make eye contact thing. Eventually we just simply said we could wait no longer, they had our credit card details, and left for our taxi. There was a system of needing a voucher verifying you had checked out before the taxis would leave so the taxi driver had to go to Reception and get the 'Duty Manager' to come to us to check us out, which she did very ungraciously! She could just as easily have done this in the first place.
We will be passing on this criticism to Kuoni and, when we next visit Bangkok, will stay anywhere other than the Holiday Inn.
One other thing, the coffee was always cold at breakfast!
We then few to Chiang Mai and stayed at the Four Seasons which was totally the opposite!
Excellent - would go back anytime!!!!
This hotel was fantastic...location, decor, staff - all excellent. The hotel looks like a 5 star hotel and the rooms are well built and very clean. The bathrooms were excellent (stayed here twice). The hotel is right next to Chit Lom Sky Train station. From here, I would suggest you take the train to NANA where you will be right in the heart of the hussle and bustle - market stalls, street food, and 100's of Tailors. If you want to get a suit made, I would reccomend Rickys fashin house (got 2 suits, 6 shirts and a pair of trousers for £240). This is locates between Ploenchit and Nana stations. What more can I say. Loved it. Feel free to mail me with any questions. Oh yeh - the CAFE G restaurant is one not to be missed - excellent buffet for brekfast and dinner.
Excellent service. Great location.
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in late October, 2005. Staff extremely helpfull and polite.
King size room clean and bed very comfortable. The Sky train station is only a 5 minute walk away. We also walked 10 minutes to the Oriental river boat station. Takes you up to the Palace, Chinatown, etc. for only a few Baht's. And its fun. Hotel is on Silom road, which comes alive each evening with the night market a 15 minute walk down the road. There are a couple on mi-markets right by the hotel. We will stay here again.
Priority Club Upgrade
We arrived at the Holiday Inn Chitlom to find that the hotel had been fully booked.
I am a Priority CLub Platinum Member as well as a Royal Ambassador at the intercontinental next door. To our amazement the manager at the Holiday Inn had switched us to the club floor at the next door hotel (Intercontinental) at no extra costs and the stay was amazing.
Top manager and goes to prove the value of enrolling in their priority club even if you don't stay too frequently. You might get an upgrade when they're busy.
This hotel was great. The Thai staff couldn't do enough for us and the room was terrific - after spending 2 weeks in UK/Europe hotels, it was great to get a good size room, peace and quiet, king size bed and airconditioning. Included rate with Breakfast was a good buffet - cereals, fruit, chef cooked eggs, omlettes, etc, etc. Room service & food also great. Stay here for your next stop-over!
Convenient, what can you ask for!!
The hotel has been taken over by Holiday Inn Group and thus the hotel is newly renovated. Atmosphere of the hotel is just fine and I really need to praise the staff there. You would always be greeted friendly.
For those that would use the hotel facilities, you might find it a bit disappointed as the pool is rather small.
However, in terms of location, it is just perfect. You can find numerous shopping centers near by and can access to them even in rainy days, as the hotel gets connected to those shopping centers by the MRT stations and flyovers.
Perfect Location. Clean an new.
I will definitely stay here again. Very convenient location. Just next to BTS Chitlom station. The atmosphere around here was safe late at night and not too busy nor too quiet. Only a minutes from Big C, a big supermarket, open around 22-23 o'clock. Connected with next Intercontinental hotel with some accessways. Intercontinental is also connected with Gaysorn, and from Gaysorn to CWP & Isetan, you can cross a bridge with roof for pedestrians, so it is very easy to get there. Within 10 minutes walk to Siam Square by pedestrian walkway without rain. Interiors in contemporary style were all clean and new, as the hotel was just renewed this April 2005. I stayed at a superior room at US$ 73, where was large and neatly furnished. Every staff was polite. If you are confused with accomodation near Chit Lom, this hotel undoubtedly has value.
I didn't have breakfast here as it cost about 500 BHT and we only needed a cup of coffee. One regret is there were not many cafes open early in the morning to have breakfast. Nearby cafe I found was only a Starbucks at Central Chitlom department, a few minutes walk.

When seeing the lobby and rooms of this hotel, it's hard to imagine that this is a Holiday Inn property. This is a beautiful, swanky, cool hotel. The lobby is full of glass, modern and clean lines and comfy sofas. The bar and restaurants are beautiful. We stayed in a standard room on the 6th floor. A non smoking floor. The rooms are on the small side, but wonderful. The bathroom is very stylish. The shower is lovely, with two shower heads. One rain shower head and a normal hand held. The bed is very comfortable. Overall, very impressed with this hotel. We were able to get a discount rate through a discount hotel site, otherwise it can be very pricey. If you don't get breakfast included in the rate, it is $14USD. You can get breakfast in your room for $11USD. We just found stuff around the hotel to eat. There are many malls in the area and sadly lots of Starbucks. It's easy to grab something cheap to eat in the area.
The hotel is right against the Intercontinental hotel. Both hotels are right next to the BTS skytrain Chitlom station. The location is excellent. You are right next to Gaysorn and Central department stores. Siam BTS station is one stop away.
The other Holiday Inn property is in Silom.
Holiday Inn Bangkok is highly recommended, especially if you are on business.

Unsurprisingly we are feeling a little bit under the weather, which ironically was stormy and worked out well for us as our late start meant we avoided the torrential rain! Holiday inn caters for the fruity, cereal lovers or greasy spooners, which I desperately needed this morning to perk me up with a coffee. Eventually we left late morning, hours …
Our proposed early start was quickly dismissed, courtesy of free booze last night and super comfy beds, which ends up being a late morning departure stuffed from the buffet breakfasts, myself devouring one of the biggest fry ups in my life, requiring two trips!

Chiang Mai to Bangkok is a travellers dilemma, as cheap flights versus cheap overnight trains are both attractive options, however we don't need to be the penny pinching travellers when in good company as we are! We land in Bangkok airport about 11am, and arrive at the Holiday Inn in Silom, South Bangkok not long past midday to check in, which we …
Well, here we are - first full day in Bangkok complete. It still hasn't sunk in for both of us that we'll be away for seven months. It was hard leaving Heathrow, having a meal with both families and then saying goodbye, a long tearful farewell.

From Koh Tao, Nat and I got a fast boat across to the small town of Chumpon which acts mainly as a portal town between Bangkok and the islands off the east coast.
