After a rather long flight we were delighted to be told that we've been upgraded to a suite and were promptly greeted with a fantastic huge room on the sixth floor (I've been playing with my new SLR camera and there is a photo attached). Hopefully, my photographic skills will improve along the way. We stayed at the President Solitaire, which was a …
Hi everyone! This is our entry for the first stop on our trip, Bangkok!
We arrived very tired at the airport, and made straight for a taxi to take us to the hotel we had booked. It was very warm, somewhere in the 30s we imagine. The hotel was beautiful and our room was huge, everything was very comfortable. Which was handy, because after …
Here we are in beautiful Bangkok where the weather is hot hot hot! Not much to report as we have
been here a few times before so we haven't hit the tourist spots...
In keeping with custom, last night we found a pub serving cheap beer and had a delicious Panang
curry. Followed by a few Black label johnny walkers....goodnight …
My god where to begin as random does not even begin to cover this city.
So I arrive at the President Solitaire Hotel at around 11pm on 02/04 and I'm wrecked. I literally pass out in my room (which is roughly about the same size as the downstairs of my house) on the bed fully clothed and the lights still on. I wake up the next day only to …
Fri 3rd Sept:
Landed about 3pm and headed to th Soi 1 guesthouse where me and Dipal had stayed on out first night of travelling two years ago. It was good to be back! Met some really nice guys there and we went out for some drinks and then to a club but the police closed it down not long after we got there, which is pretty common in …

Historical Traveler Reviews President Solitaire Hotel & Spa Bangkok
Great room, so so location
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
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
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
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!
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.
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
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.
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
Some apartments seem to be better then others. Topaz Studio isn't at all great.
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!+++++
