    The staff were very friendly and helpful. That is the most important!!! Great location by the river. The breakfast buffett was scrumptious! I was happy to see a small mall next door including a bridge from the hotel. It was great as the minute we stepped onto the bridge it started to pour down cats and dogs! No wet head for this gal....

    We stayed at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel for three nights. I couldn't have chosen any better hotel. We were very well situated along the famous river and had great views from our room. The staff was impeccable and always there to help us. The tours taken from the hotel's tour desk were fantastic. We had a great time and would highly recommend this hotel!

    The hotel itself is beautiful, and well-located. Definitely recommeded.

    A note on the service:

    When we showed up, my girlfriend wasn't feeling too great. The receptionist saw this, and got us right into a room, allowing us to complete our checkin later. Later we actually needed a doctor. The on-staff doctor spoke almost no English and (we later learned) prescribed sinus medication and a painkiller for an infection that could have been quite serious, and required antibiotics. The staff did, however, get us into a cab to a nearby upscale hospital that took great care of my girlfriend.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers Bangkok

    Tower Suites well worth the extra cash

    from

    Travelled to Bangkok in March2005. As this was our first trip to Bangkok we were a little apprehensive, but when we arrived at the Royal Orchid we were very pleased.

    Upon arrival we were offered an upgrade to a tower room, not free but reasonably priced considering we had booked room only, this included a top floor room with a great river view,a good breakfast which was served in a lovely lounge, free laundry and use of the tower lounge with complementary drinks between 6 and 7, always a plus!

    The rooms are very nice with large comfortable beds, room service was good but needed a reminder to get it on time. We tried the Italian restaurant on our last night, the food was very nice and service excellent but it was quiet, so no atmosphere.

    The hotel is connected to the River City shopping centre which has some nice antique shops which are a bit pricey and a selection of restaurants, none of which are that special. A river taxi will take you across to the Yok Yor restaurant, we tried this but the service was terrible although the food was ok.

    To get around the city the river taxi's and the metered taxi's are the best option. The skytrain is ok but with a limited service if you're near the river.

    All in all a very good hotel in a nice location with good service.

    many thanks

    An Excellent Choice - No complaints.

    from

    I have not one single complaint about this hotel. I booked this hotel through Virgin Holidays for our honeymoon. We stayed 4 nights with complimentary breakfast which was truly 5 STAR. All of the amenities are of a high standard the outdoor pools are fantastic, the business centre was just perfect as we could burn all our digi pics on cd, the quality of service was excellent - i personally tipped each of the porters on our final day, the location is probably one of the best in Bangkok.

    We actually made some time to visit other top hotels in bangkok and i think that by comparison the RO Sheraton is actually more pleasant.

    Any visits to Bangkok in the future and i have no hesitation about where i will be staying!!!

    Great location, views

    from

    Stayed here in February 2005. Lovely room overlooking the busy Chao Phraya river. (Agree with all the previous posts.) Breakfast with the room had an excellent selection with Asian and Western items.

    Although there is a free shuttle to the skytrain station, during rush hours it is faster to hop the water bus to the skytrain station (otherwise you're stuck in traffic for quite a while).

    If you go next door to the Art & Antique Mall (which has some spectacular stuff), you can catch free water shuttles to The Peninsula or The Oriental Hotel and a few other places. This info doesn't seem to be widely advertised, however.

    There are several restaurants on site. One has a cultural show with a Thai buffet each night.

    The hotel will provide pickup service from the airport, but it's over twice what you'll pay for a meter taxi. Don't stop for the guys asking if you want a taxi before you leave the airport secured area...go out and get a metered taxi off the curb, it'll be cheaper.

    The Royal Orchid is lovely. I'd gladly stay there again.

    Very Average - but good view from room

    from

    We have spent 4 days at The Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel in Bangkok recently.

    After spending 3 days at the Landmark Hotel this hotel turned out to be a disappointment. Although the view of the river from the room was terrific.

    Given this country is the 'Land of Smiles' the staff were not very friendly, attentive and in the restaurant we had to wait to be served and the tables at times were not cleared.

    The menu was limited and not varied at all.

    On the plus side the hotel was clean but the room in which we stayed needed an upgrade of the bathroom.

    The Garden Pool was nice but the water was extremeley cold and the jacuzzi was colder still!!

    The location (although next to the river) is not very good for visiting around Bangkok.

    If you go to Bangkok stay at the Landmark Hotel - far superior !!!

    Nice central place

    from

    Just got back from three nights. First of all, the location can't be beat - and they have a free shuttle to the skytrain. Nice rooms (we're in spg so we got a suite) and extremely gracious service. The pool was also great for laps - very important to me. I'd definitely stay here again

    Superb hotel - good room (with views!), great location, great amenities

    from

    Stayed here in November 2003 and again in February 2004. Location is great (right on the river, next to a boat stop), which makes traveling around so much easier and faster (avoiding traffic jams!) during the day. Alternatively, taxis to anywhere are extremely affordable. Rooms all have river views and are of good standard. Pools & fitness center are great. Great bands play in the hotel bar at night (during both stays) - good atmosphere & service.

    Wonderful hotel, great location

    from

    We stayed at the Royal Orchid for 3 days in early November 2004 and it was one of the most pleasant stays we have had in any hotels for a long time. A lot of people in various discussion groups suggested getting a hotel room with a riverview while in Bangkok and they were correct.

    I had actually booked a standard riverview room through an internet third-party website, and by the time we checked into the hotel it was overbooked. Thus, we were immediately upgraded to the Tower suites, top floor. Although we weren't allowed to use the other Tower suites perks, we still enjoyed their wonderful room.

    The room on the 28th floor was fantastic, very spacious and clean with a good king sized bed. The view was pretty much from floor to ceiling. Washrooms were very clean and modern, and rooms included a minibar, bathrobes and cable tv. Service was excellent as well, and buffet breakfast was standard with lots of fruits and a mix of hot and cold selections.

    Location of the hotel is very good as well. It is right next to a water boat (bus) station, which you can easily ride up to the grand palace or wat po. You can also take a free hotel shuttle to the nearest Skytrain station, although the shuttles don't run that frequently.

    Overall, my wife & I truly enjoyed the Royal Orchid and I would definitely stay there again while visiting Bangkok.

    Great location, great service, great views

    from

    This was my third stay at the Royal Orchid Sheraton and it was good to see that the great service and high standards have been maintained. The hotel is in a terrific location right on the river and all rooms have river views. Room pricing is also very competitive for a 5 star property.

    Great hotel

    from

    Spent three nights at the Royal Orchid Sheraton in Nov 2003 and it was fantastic. Stayed in the Towers room which had separate lounge area, huge bathroom with jacuzzi and stunning views of the river and Place etc. Complimentary breakfast was great and ate at restaurant one night but food in Bangkok is SO cheap I really suggest you get out and about to explore (3 course meal for two plus beer on banks of river for eight UK pounds)!! Great location next to river taxi stop, although shopping complex next door is a bit dated.

    Great Location, with brilliant sevice

    from

    The first impression you have arriving at the hotel is the increased security all arriving cars are searched and checked.

    The hotel lobby is fairly standard for the style of hotel with lots of wood and very busy. Checkin went smoothly and we where offer an paid for upgrade as we where on a room only rate. it was $40 per room and included breakfast, 6 pieces of Laundary per day per person and free use of the excutive lounge which offered complimentary coffeee and soft drinks all day and a free happy hour from 5.30 to 7.00 pm.

    The rooms and facilities are exctulayy what you would expect from any number of 4* hotels but this hote has one feature that makes it stand out the staff are 4 excellent always on hand to help and doing it with a smile.

    I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted a very good location and excellent service the local river boat pier is next door to the hotels and you can be quickly and easily on your way to the wonderful sights of the city.
