The Imperial Queen'S Park Hotel

Der Tag beginnt für mich, wie der gestrige geendet hat, mit heftigen Halsschmerzen und der Einnahme von Ibuprofen 600 (soll nochmal jemand sagen, es sei nicht sinnvoll, das eine oder andere Medikament mit in den Urlaub zu nehmen).
Damit zugedröhnt freue ich mich auf einen gemütlichen Reisetag weiter in den hohen Norden, nach Sukhothai. Das …
... a queue down the street. He was right it was amazing even if we did forget to bring money and Matt had to sprint back in 35 degree heat to get some. Oaps. Wednesday 30th Today I decided it was time to drag Matt around some temples and we started off by taking the 20 minute walk to Wat Pho. A Wat is a monastery-temple and means Buddhist sacred precinct. Luckily I'd read up on some bangkok scams with the most popular scam known as "temples closed". This ...
We left the hotel! Tried to go to grand palace but it was shut so we will go another day :) Wandered down the street and stumbled upon a big garden with some temples. We walked along the river. We walked back and got a cheap smoothie. We went for a swim in the thunder. We had a Thai massage, shisha and a nice meal at my darling. The Thai massage was definitely an ...
... us off at a tourist office! We had absolutely no need for a tourist office so we made idle conversation. The Swiss salesman knew exactly why we were in and as soon as the designated 10 minutes were up we were back on the tuk tuk bound for our hotel to pick up our bags. Back at the train st everything went smoothly and our train was good, not as rickety as the Chiang Mai one. After the night we woke up at 7am and disembarked, got a coach and connecting ferry to Ko ...
After eventually settling down to sleep, surprisingly I made it through to 4am with little disturbance. It wasn't until the lights came on I woke to the weary murmur of others around me. We'd arrived in Bangkok so the first half of our journey was complete. Unfortunately that was the easy bit. We jumped in a taxi to the train station where we'd have to occupy ourselves until midday. In an attempt to kill time I engrossed myself in The Godfather - ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Imperial Queen'S Park Hotel Bangkok
I really can't fault this hotel. We had a fantastic stay, great location, staff helpful & polite, breakfast worth every penny... Would definitely go back to this hotel. Didn't use the facilities so can't comment on those but they all looked good.
Used the Leks massage shop opposite the hotel as suggested by a previous visitor.. Great recommendation... my partner & I spent several relaxing hours in there, having foot and body massages. Pure bliss after an 11 hour flight!
Enjoyed my 7 night stay here. There were problems at check in, I think their computer system was down so all rooms were being assigned manually and I was given a room that someone else was staying in, their luggage etc. was in the room. The front desk resolved this issue and put me in a room on the top floor (36) which had fantastic views over the city. Room was clean and well equipped with jacuzzi tub and the food from room service was good and fast. Would stay here again.
Okay, but worth your while to check elsewhere
I was here on business, and the best thing about this hotel was that it was not far from my appointments, and would save me the hassle of being stuck in Bangkok's notorious traffic congestion. It was an okay stay for the price, but you may be able to do better, given your travel and location needs. However, this is a very large hotel, so you may get a pretty decent rate, and a pretty good breakfast is included.
The standard room was quite worn and needs a freshening up. I can't fault the housekeeping at all. The complimentary breakfast was pretty good and seemed to be able to cover the range of tastes and preferences, given the very international crowd that this place attracts. Lots of fresh fruits, and things to keep both Asian and Western tastes happy.
The location of the hotel has its good and bad points. It overlooks a nice park, and a short walk across brings you to one of the best shopping malls in town -- the Emporium -- with high-end designer labels, etc. However, out the main door is not as attractive. I appreciate travel and cultural differences, and the street outside has that range of interesting small shops, but also broken sidewalks and plentiful hookers (I'm NOT interested, and know this comes with the territory, but it is REALLY obvious outside.)
I have stayed at this hotel many times and I am yet to be disappointed. I have heard the rumours about some of the rooms being a bit tired and smelly, but I can't say I have experienced it. This time I stayed in a Premier Room at a highly discounted price (make sure you negotiate with the hotel sales) and I found the room to be very spacious and clean. The one downside to this hotel is that is not within walking distance of most sights, however as pointed out previously the skytrain is just a 5 minute walk out the back. Breakfast was included in the rate and I cannot recommend this highly enough, stuff yourself at the buffet and you're all set for the day. In summary, this hotel is very hard to beat when it comes to value for money.
Excellent hotel located next to the Emporium shopping centre.I stayed for 4 nights on a stopover to Austraila and couldn't fault the facilities or the staff (I didn't eat in any of the hotel restaurants so can't comment on those). There is a separate side entrance to the hotel which leads to a very pleasant park that is mainly used by locals, this means you don't have to use the narrow street that leads to the hotel's main entrance if you don't want to.The room I stayed in was very large, polished wood floors and excellent view of the city. One fault I would have is that there was no counter to organise day trips although this is a minor quibble as trips can be organised from almost anywhere else. That said I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
A good one
I wound up in this hotel as the one I would normally go was fully booked. Actually, it was better than I expected. The hotel is quite nice with large common areas. Food is good and staff very helpful. Rooms are large and comfortable, although they will need some refurbishing not too far away in time. Definitely a good choice if it does not get run down.
This hotel is just such good value for money, its amazing !!! We stayed for four nights in October 2003 and it was superb......hugh rooms with kingsize beds and jacuzzi baths. We stayed on a room only basis but the breakfast in the hotel was good and cheap about £4.00 for as much as you could eat.
The hotel is suitated a little distance from the river but is easily accessible by the monorail which stops at the bottom of the road. The facilities were excellent and the staff extremely helpful too. If you stay at this hotel there is a fab massage place accross the road called "Leks" - nothing dodgy just superb massages very welcome after a long flight !!
Cant say a bad word about this hotel - would recommend it to anyone !!!!
