      Historical Traveler Reviews President Solitaire Hotel & Spa Bangkok

      Great room, so so location

      from

      We stayed in the Solitaire Suite. The room itself was great. Very spacious, decor was nice, the big plasma TV and kitchenette were great features. Breakfast and room service meals were both excellent and reasonably priced. The minibar is OK however the 7-11 around the corner is a bargain alternative for drinks and snacks. The location wasn't ideal. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from Sukhumvit Rd and Nana BTS station which is usually fine, however if it rains the road floods and that walk must be done on the road in shin deep water, braving spray from passing taxis. (the footpaths are crowded with street vendors) When this happened heading out got to be a fair hassle. Arranging tours was a bit of a hassle too, with no tour desk in the hotel we had to head to the local travel agents and hope we found a decent one. Overall good value and nice room but I would probably spend a little more next time and go for something right on Sukhumvit road.

      Overpriced,Overhyped. Certainly not a place for leisue tourists

      from

      Stayed here for 4 nights in september and to be honest the majority of guests were in Bangkok on business.Remember being very dissapointed when i first walked through the lobby.Not a place i would reccomend for couples or leisure tourists.Dont get me wrong its a decent place but for the price places like Siam hotels with 7 restaurants,Art Galleries,Health Spas etc will blow your mind away at a lower price.

      Not much to do in the hotel apart from go to your room.small little bar,small lobby room.While the staff are friendly and helpful the location is a bit of a nightmare for visiting places such as the grand palace.

      Can see why its so popular with busineness travellers but trust me the average holiday maker should not book into serviced apartments.Go for a hotel instead!

      A Hidden Gem

      from

      As another review says, I really have to struggle not to give away this absolute gem of a hotel.

      Great location near the Nana skytrain. We got upgraded and had the most amazing suite with our own jacuzzi and plasma telly. All for the reasonable sum of 40 quid. The staff are lovely and there's also a good sized pool.

      Book through the website for the best prices and make sure you get a metred taxi to and from Bangkok airport.

      Sawatdee Kaa! Great Hotel

      from

      I must admit I was very sceptical about staying in this hotel as I thought the reviews were probably "over hyped". All I can say is that this hotel is superb!! It's in a great location has excellent rooms and facilities. The food was great; the staff were really friendly and helpful.

      You will not be disappointed with your stay here. I will definitely be staying here again when I return to Bangkok in Dec 05.

      Keep it quiet!

      from

      I write this review with some hesitation, as I don't want to give away a real gem.

      After 3 trips to BKK for work-related purposes, I'm now completely sold on service apts vs. hotels. This place is great, clearly a step up from the cheaper Grand President, which is run by the same group.

      Make sure to check the hotel website for a package deal that you cannot get with online booking agents (Orbitz, Expedia, etc.). I had a price that beat all the 'outsiders' plus got some extra perks, like 3 pieces of laudry a day, free newspaper, etc. They also upgraded me to an 80m2 suite, which ensured my loyalty for the future.

      Can't say enough about this place. I received excellent service from the registration staff, concierge (free rides to Sukhumvit!), and business center. Breakfast very good, many options and great service. Really can't say enough.

      BTW, I'm certainly not one of those who just raves about anything. For example, see my review of the Suriwongse in Chiang Mai!

      Amazing place. Perfect find.

      from

      A marble entry hall. A huge bedroom with massive plasma screen and DVD player. A large lounge with another plasma screen. A ginormous bathroom. And a kitchen. Anywhere that has all this available for this kind of price deserves to be number 1 in this list, not where it currently is.

      Given that Bangkok is, itself, an entirely mad, smelly, chaotic kind of place, it's surprising to find this hotel - tucked away from the main Sukhumvit road but only a few minutes' walk. Clearly run by Bangkok people, but originally kitted out by Westerners, it's a tremendously luxurious place at a price cheaper than a motel.

      Now, I didn't eat there (my colleague said that breakfast was lovely). The lift has a mind of its own. It is a short walk away from Sukhumvit and the Nana skytrain station - though that walk, just like most of Bangkok, is a bit of an obstacle course. But the staff are friendly, and genuinely care for the welfare of their guests - and the price is unbeatable.

      Do it. Stay there. You'll not regret it - unless you really care about being able to pick up CNN or BBC World (which you can't)!

      Negative reviewer is MISTAKEN

      from

      The TripAdvisor Member from Germany whose review is dated January 16 2005, and who only gives this hotel 2 out of 5, has got the wrong hotel.

      He or she says "Topaz Studio isn't at all great." Topaz Studios are the cheap rooms at a nearby hotel called the Grand President. The President Solitaire, by contrast, doesn't have any "Topaz Studios".

      The two hotels are on the same street and they both have the word "President" in their name, so obviously it's a mix-up. Don't believe the negative review.

      Great hotel

      from

      Good location, fantastic room. We had a Platinum Suite, entrace hall, massive bed, 42in plasma tv in the bedroom. Lounge with another TV, Kitchen and bathroom with marble jacuzzi. Cool. Good food and only a short walk to the Skytrain (Nana station). Would visit again.

      Not so great

      from

      Some apartments seem to be better then others. Topaz Studio isn't at all great.

      Amazing Rooms...

      from

      I stayed in the President Solitaire for a week, great location tucked away from the main hustle and bustle of Sukhumvit Rd. The rooms were amazing, equipped with 40+ inch plasma TV's, huge bathrooms and big comfy beds. Each room also has a kitchen with fridge, microwave, stove etc.. and fully equipped which is really handy. The staff were excellent and attentive - So good I had to return four weeks later.. the staff welcomed us back! Go for it!+++++

      ... horrible

    • There are still protesters against the governmenr. They are are camped for example at Lumpini Park and the National Stadium. They also blocked some mainroads with old cars and old tires. They are still friendly but it's a bit annoying for commuting people
    • It's hard for me to say but Bangkok as a megacity is way more fun than Jakarta. More things to do, not so stressful, better public transport, more historic sites and also nice parks to chill out

      ... no way Mr Jobsworth is going to let her in early. Fair enough I suppose but ... more waiting. She finally gets into the office and I wait a further 40mins for her to return, job done and fingers crossed. I can think of no reason why they might refuse the application but experience shows that they don't actually need a good reason !!
      We then take the Skytrain as far north as it goes to the Mo Chit area. We pass over the Victory Monument Square where ...
