    Historical Traveler Reviews Prince Palace Hotel Bangkok

    Great value.

    from

    My wife and I stayed in the Prince Palace for seven nights and for the price we paid had no complaints, it really was tremendous value.

    Our double room on the 28th floor was spacious and clean with great views over the city,although I can see that maybe it is time for the decor to be refreshed.

    The air conditioning worked a treat and the breakfasts were very filling, lunch and dinner was good value with a varied choice of western and Thai food.

    The staff were charming especially if you took time to talk to them, all very helpful and spoke good English.

    Getting around was not a problem either by taxi or Tuk Tuk and even by the canal water bus just round the corner,a Tuk Tuk charged 60 Baht from the centre of town,a great experience.Taxi around 250 Baht from the airport.

    If you are on a budget or do not want extra expensive frills we would recommend the Prince Palace.

    A bit of a disappointment

    from

    Located in the heart of the wholesale clothing area.

    I expected more luxury than we got. It is an older hotel that has had some partial restoration. The downstairs, public areas and dining areas are where they appear to have concentrated all the remodeling. We initially got a standard room. Musty smell and wallpaper peeling off the wall. We had to upgrade to a deluxe room to get a kingsize bed. Shower head was low on the wall which meant bending down to be able to wash your hair.

    Hotel was not as clean as I would have liked. The windows were smudged and burn marks on the carpeting. Very firm (in other words.. hard!!) beds but this seems to be the norm in Thailand. The pillows were large and firm. The first night on them gave me a serious crick in my neck. Thank goodness I was in the land of Thai massage for $3. I really needed it. I checked with the hotel and they did not have any smaller or feather pillows to substitute. (This is a large hotel with 300+ rooms and they only had 1 type of pillow?)

    Very efficient staff. A bell hop with our bags was waiting for us at our floor when we got off the elevator. Most the of the staff speaks very little (if any) English. The guy at the reception desk upstairs (who speaks fairly good English) will try and get you to pay as much as he can for a room. He'll use the term "overbooked" to get you to pay more and say he is almost full. Don't believe him. I heard him use the same routine 3 times.

    The breakfast was a very large and varied buffet and pretty good. 2 thumbs up on that respect. Dining room is very nice. Lots of business travelers there.

    Many of the taxi drivers did not know where the hotel was (the tuk tuk drivers never had a problem finding it). Be sure and get a taxi card from the front desk which has directions to the hotel in Thai. If you don't see the cards ask for them. When we got one they were hidden behind another display on the counter. Also, the taxi drivers will probably find the place easier if you tell them it is the Bo Bae tower. We won't stay here again. I would recommend the Swanna Hotel which is near the Grand Palace area. Ultra clean, soft and sweet smelling linens and wonderful modern recessed lighting. We found the Swanna on our last night in Bangkok and switched hotels.

    A decent hotel, but far from transit options

    from

    This is a newer building, with rooms similar to those at a Best Western or Comfort Inn in the USA. It's a good value, but you can easily hear plumbing noises and closing doors from the other rooms that might wake you up early in the morning. There are blackout curtains which kept out nearly all the light in the morning. Mini-fridge, cable TV, plenty of places to put things. Simple amenities in the bathroom, marble counter and tiles. The room was clean overall, but there was black mold in the bathroom grout which could have easily been removed with a little bleach. Great view from room 2214. Also had desk, 2 chairs and table. This was a large room for a budget hotel. They do not have an iron and ironing board for guests to use (you have to use their pressing service, which isn't available at all times) this was a major negative for me, since I arrived with a suitcase full of wrinkled clothing. The beds were of medium firmness, which was a nice change from the usually rock-hard beds in Thailand. The in-room safe was free to use. This hotel management apparently thinks that guests are there to take things from the room. For example, the toilet paper holder in my room's bathroom had room for 2 rolls of toilet paper, but they only put in one roll. There was a price list posted that listed what you would be charged for each item missing from the room upon checkout. When we checked out in the morning, we had to wait nearly 10 minutes at the front desk while they had a maid inventory our room for missing items before they would give us our receipt. This wasted precious time while we were trying to get to the airport. The biggest problem with this hotel is that it's not within reasonable walking distance of either the underground or the Sky Train. It took us 25 minutes to walk to the nearest Sky Train station (National Stadium). Because there's no transit in this area, traffic is heavy, so you can take a taxi, but you'll sit in traffic. Even though the hotel was a good value at $35 per night I would only stay here again if everything were booked elsewhere.

    Pleasant Surprise at the Prince Palace

    from

    I had been travelling in Thailand for a week before I stayed at the Prince Palace. I was very pleasantly surprised at how luxurious the hotel was considering the very inexpensive rate we paid.

    I had previously stayed at the Viengtai Hotel for $38 US a night. I expected the same level of budget travel bare and simple accommodations at the Prince Palace for which I paid the same price. I was very wrong. The bathroom was fully marble and had a huge whirlpool tub and western shower. The room was well decorated and the beds were very comfortable.

    The main lobby and restaurant were plush and provided spectacular views of the city. It was a welcome escape from the hectic streets of Bangkok below. The food was very good and reasonable in price. The hotel also has a lovely, and very large pool. After a day in the sun and heat of sightseeing, I could not wait to take a dip here.

    The hotel staff is helpful and provide cabs that can be trusted more than the ones obtained on the street.

    Overall I thought this hotel was a tremendous value. There is no need to stay at a western hotel chain when the Prince Palace can provide near the same level of luxury at a fraction of the price. The views alone are worth it.

    Great convenient place to stay

    from

    Having just almost reached the end of a world trip and staying in some hotels I would not recommend. I would highly recommend The Prince Palace and will be going back. The room was extremely large compared to some we had stayed in and the price was very good to cheap. The breakfast that was included was well worth having with a variety of dishes to suit every taste. Normally I do not have formal meals in the hotels I stay in, mainly due to cost but, had a meal for six one night and the meal and service were excellent and the cost very fair. Being set in a market area, it is vibrant and the staff excel themselves in friendliness and willingness to help. Taxi and Tuk-Tuks are always waiting outside to take you where ever you want. Definately recommended.

    Amazing views of the city!

    from

    My fiancé and I stayed at the Prince Palace Hotel in June 2005 and thought that it was great! We were really impressed with this hotel and the services that it provided. It is in a great location in the city reasonably near the Grand Palace (it also has an ATM machine just next door).

    We received a room on arrival on the 29th floor with amazing views of the city and the rooms were large, clean and all had air con. (One small disadvantage - and the only one - was that the shower heads are set at a specific height making hair washing difficult if you are above 5ft5"!) Although all rooms within the hotel are located on the 13th floor or above I recommend that you ask for one as high as possible to make the most of your stay!! While staying in the hotel we also made use of the massage service and swimming pool and the staff were friendly and spoke great English which was a definite advantage. We also ate in the restaurant and had breakfast and the food was lovely and there was a large choice on the menus. I would certainly recommend this for a stay in Bangkok - if you use metered taxis then it is never more than about £2 to get anywhere in the city from here.

    One tip... there is a taxi service located within the hotel lobby - this is not run by the hotel (which we assumed it was!). The taxis from here are overpriced as they do not have meters, and one evening took us to a restaurant of their choice where the driver received commission rather than where we wanted to go. If you walk one minute to the main road there is no problem in getting taxis or tuk-tuks and many of these are on a meter making them cheaper and you then get to where you want to go!

    Wonderful Stay!!

    from

    I stayed here in Feb 2005 and found the facilities and service to be excellent!! I had a lovely room with a great view of the city. Because the hotel occupies the upper floors of this tower, I would imagine most rooms would have this view. Spotlessly clean bathroom and all the amenities you would need. The pool was wonderful and the hotel restaurant served delicious top quality food. The breakfast was a HUGE buffet with something to cater to every taste. Usually I skip hotel breakfasts but this one was worth getting up for. The workers are all so friendly and helpful and will book tours or taxis for you. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Highly recommended. I would stay here again without a doubt.

Over the years Leon and I have done a fair amount of backpack style travelling together in lesser developed countries and in places where we aren't necessarily too comfortable with the language. …
