      Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Benja Hotel Bangkok

      Brilliant !!!


      I'm writing this before I book make my second booking. I've been to Thailand 7 times, making 14th stays in Bangkok. I always stay around Sukhumvit Road, and have stayed in lots of hotels around the 1200 Baht / $30 / £18 mark. This is by far the best hotel I've stayed in around this price range, and I've paid a lot, lot more, for a lot, lot less !!!

      P.S. Best breakfast / Biggest room, anywhere I've stayed in the world !!!

      What a breakfast!


      stayed here for 4 nights. They have got to have the best breakfast buffet i've ever seen for a hotel. Everythign you can think of and then some. Amazing. The room was quite large with 2 double beds and a sofa and all the usual hotel amenities. The bathroom was large too, clean but nothing great. Funny smell from the drains though. No in room safe. Complimentary 2 water bottles every day. Air conditioning that worked (this is vital for bangkok). The staff at the reception desk was very helpful. Location is right in the heart of the sukhimvit area. And on the same street (2 minute walk away), there is a supermarket where u can pick up stuff. The hotel is located at the end of the street (soi), which is about a 4 minute walk from the main road. It can get dark at night, but there is quite a bit ppl on the street to make it safer. It is about a 5-10 minute walk to the MRT (skytrain). Great Value.

      p.s. if anyone stops u while you are visiting a temple or other tourist attraction and the words "take a tuk tuk" comes' a scam!! Get out of the situation and continue with your own plans.

      Save your self from a hell lot of crap


      the room which was alloted to us had such a bad smell that even the house keeping people didnt want to go in, then we were moved to a different room ( well no apology or anything ) just another key. this room was a lil better but the corridor was like a nigtmare, dirty, smelly and full of unfriendly staff. if even after his you r stuck to this hotel ask for higher floors.

      Pleasant hotel


      I book 2 rooms and we get connectings rooms. Nice bathroom with separate bath and shower. The corridor are amazing in this thin building, you have a view of Sukhumvit/petchaburi from every floor. Large lobby and good restaurant. The pool area is pleseant and the price is really cheap if you book it trough local agency. The location is good, a foodland supermarket is not far and Nana plaza is 10 minutes walk.

      The Benja rocks.


      We have stayed in the Royal benja on two occasions and found it to be the best value for money in Bangkok. It is in an excellent location, quite enough to enjoy the pool on the 5th floor, yet only a few hundred yards from Sukhumvit road. OUr room was huge, with a double bed and a 3/4 bed, a sofa, tv, mini bar and panoramic views of the city. The bathroom was clean and had the luxury of a bath and a seperate shower in a huge cubicle. Breakfast consists of everything you can ever imagine. We are going back!

      Top Hotel


      We stayed at the Royal Benja over christmas and new year, By far the best value and best hotel I've stayed in Bangkok.

      The Breakfast is superb, the rooms are very large, the staff helpful, and if you look hard enough on the web you can get a room for $38.00.

      Best Breakfast in Bangkok


      Fantastic value for money in Bangkok, probably the the best breakfast buffet in the city, very nice decor in the dining room. Big rooms with huge bathrooms. Carpet your feet sink into. Excellent view of the city from your window. Nice friendly service everywhere.

      Location is near the Nana BTS that gets you to all of the popular locations even better now with the MRT up and running.

      I love it here and always come back.

      No cockroaches whatsoever


      Could not find any cockroaches, although I looked in every corner... on the contrary, I found the hotel very pleasant. Extremely large rooms and bathrooms, the bathroom even had separate bathtub and shower. The breakfast buffet was wonderful, one of the best of the whole trip. Location of the hotel is excellent, a few steps from Sukhumvit Road. I can only recommend this hotel.

      Loved Royal Benja


      I was in Bangkok in 2002 (Sept - Oct) and stayed at Royal Benja Hotel. I loved the friendliness of the staff. The hotel is within reach of everything one needs, especially transport.

      An extra little something


      This is a hotel i will never forget. My friends and I arrived at the hotel in the late afternoon, to whatlooked like a very fancy hotel. We checked in and went to our rooms.

      We were soon cheking out again, because both our rooms were crawling with cockroaches.

      When we told them they did not seem to care at all.

We dropped our bags off at the hostel room and decided to head straight out for dinner which featured a very strong cocktail. Buzzing, we again postponed a much needed shower for the bars. We made friends with some German guys on the way to the bar and the language barrier didn't stop us from having a great night with towers of beer and buckets of cocktails. At ...

He told the cab driver to take us to some small temples, then to the Grand Palace and he would do it for 20 baht each! That's less than a dollar! A personal driver for less than a dollar! Sounds good to me! We were not complaining.

      Now let me start off by saying this was not your regular taxis. This was a motor bike with a large back seat. They call them 'Tuk Tuk' ...

      After witnessing an amazing experience in Hanoi for Tet (Vietnam new lunar year) with the fireworks etc it was up and back off to Bangkok! At the start of my trip when I arrived in Bangkok I met a friend from Holland who had a spare VIP ticket to Sensation White - Bangkok. Throughout my trip we stayed in contact but luckily it ended up me being in Bangkok on the same day as the party, buzzing!

      So we woke up early doors to catch our flight, this time with VietJet Air, yes they're ...
