No sooner had we landed at our hotel and we were picked up by the dentist. Little B had everything organized so we alll headed off to have a look at the dentists.....not realising that we would all end up sitting in the dentists chair. I just went for a look and ended up with my teeth laser whitenened!!!! Surprised but really pleased with the …
Lange ersehnt und endlich ist es soweit! Heute ging es über Frankfurt nach Bangkok. Beide Flüge liefen glatt, Mama hat wieder mal alles super organisiert:) Von FRA nach BKK haben wir in der Buisness Class gesessen, also viel und lecker gegessen und die restlichen Sachen, die noch dazu gehören, über uns ergehen lassen. …
Na een vliegreis van zo'n 10 uur aangekomen op Suvarnabhum airport dat net buiten het centrum van Bangkok ligt. Aldaar een taxi genomen naar het Radisson hotel op zo'n half uurtje rijden. Prima hotel dat van ale gemakken is voorzien (zwembad, fitnessruimte, sauna en diverse restaurants). De eerste dag rustig doorgebracht met een beetje slapen, …
So, our beach break was pretty much like many of the holidays you and we have been on, lots of sunshine, lots of sand and lots of beach walks! Mui Ne, 4 hours east of Saigon was our well researched target and proved to be a great choice, developed enough to give a little choice of eating / drinking etc but not yet too commercialised to make our …
We arrived into Bangkok late at night after an afternoon flight from Singapore. Our transfer van was waiting for us and took us along a massive multi-storey highway to our hotel. Bangkok was a bit of a culture shock for me. On going to our hotel, the driver took a bit of a back route and we saw people, big groups of people hanging out under …

Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Tulip Sovereign Hotel Bangkok
Very Good Indeed.l
Excellent. Terrific breakfast. Very good gym. Nice pool. Great customer service. Good sized rooms. Very convenient for airport or to get out of town as near the expressway. However that can be a bit noisy, but not too bad if you ask for a room higher up. I don't know what my brother's fussing about on his review written a few days ago. It only cost £35 ($78USD) for 4 Star luxury that would've cost £200 in London. Taxis are so cheap the location is almost irrelevant and they take the registration number of any taxi that picks you up to make sure you're OK. This hotel looks after you. Get in any trouble in Bangkok and they'll help out. Cheap places just throw you out if e.g you've had your wallet stolen.
This was a great hotel. Excellent service from the minute you enter the magnificently grand reception. The staff are friendly and v. helpfull, the rooms are spotless and we were even offered a free upgrade to the premiere floor, which was divine. 10 out of 10.
The Radisson Bangkok is the perfect place to come if you don't really like Bangkok. I felt totally apart from the city and had the impression that I could just as well have been in Oslo (admittedly, on a very hot and steamy day). It does everything you'd expect a Radisson to do: Good-sized rooms, very good and varied breakfast, swimming pool, gym etc., but given the size of bangkok and the common traffic snarl on the huge road outside, it's just not the part of town you want to be in if you actually want to go and do/see anything. The main reason I stayed there was because Bangkok is so cheap that you can opt for luxury at a still reasonable price. Also, I was travelling with my brother, a big fan of the western-style luxury hotel anywhere. However, a week later, I stayed three nights at SUK 11, actually IN town, for a tenth of the price and liked every aspect of the place (ok, apart from the breakfast) more than the Radisson. The difference is that that place has local CHARACTER, something that Radissons very rarely have. I mean, you can even meet normal thai people there, rather than the ubiquitous farangs in suits at the Radisson. A question of taste perhaps but dull, dull, dull for me.
Loved the radisson
my daughter and i stayed here in october 2004,the staff were friendly and helpful,the room was big and the bathroom was nice and clean ,air con was fantastic after a long day of shopping.the hotel was out of the way a little but the hotel had a shuttle bus which you had to book the previous day to take you to the major shopping complexes and there was a different shuttle if you wanted to go to the under ground train station and the shuttle would also pick you up at certain times of the day at the station,last pick up from there was 9.00pm.breakfast was a big display from different countries (no hash browns) also you often saw western men at breakfast with their lady of the night.....puts you off your breakfast alittle
We stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Lovely hotel but dreadful location
Stayed in this hotel for four days. Room was spotless clean, spacious and well appointed. Divine bathroom. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was ok.
The location of this hotel really spoiled our holiday. Although there is a complimentary shuttle bus.....it takes about an hour to travel about 1 KM. It is not possible to walk into town because it is located near a busy overpass with no footpath.
Had great difficulty getting a taxi to the hotel during peak periods....the taxi driver's simply refused.
Tourist are really quite isolated in this hotel as no shops, bars or restaurants nearby.
Stayed for 3 nights in Jan 05. The hotel is convenient for the airport (30 mins, 400 THB from airport, 250 THB back to airport) but not for much else! Taxis to the main attractions are cheap though.
Fine hotel but not near anything
I stayed several nights here in early january 2005. the hotel and room were fine, but the location is quite poor. you are surrounded on all 4 sides by busy roads and highways. it is nearly impossible to walk anywhere--there is nothing near to walk to, anyway. there is a shuttle service to the subway and also the emporium, but you are nevertheless quite isolated in this hotel.
Stayed at the Radisson for 3 nights whilst in Bangkok. It was a great hotel and we would definitely stay there again!
