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 !!!!

... had slept in for some time so we both got a good nights sleep.
The next day we had to get to the national rail station to collect our tickets for the night train the following day. This took us up until lunch time because it was pretty far from the hostel and we had to use both the skytrain and metro to get there. We got a cheap and spicy meal before getting the river boat to see some of the landmarks. First we went to Wat Pho temple, part ...
... to a hostel in Chiang Mai. We really should have booked one but the wifi was slow earlier and we were in a bit of a rush, but I'm sure it will be fine. I am so so so excited to get to Chiang Mai. I want to go water rafting, elephant trekking, visit waterfalls, mountain trekking and visit some temples. So we will see how much we get time for, but fingers crossed quite a lot. I reckon we will stay there for around 5 days, and then after that we want to ...
... the largest golden teakwood house in the world. It is immaculately preserved and set within beautiful grounds. Balconies and lead glass windows surround the entire structure allowing it to be open and bright. A bit east meets west in decor, it is now a museum for the King's collections from swords and guns to ivory tusks and china.
Next stop was the Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall, which was probably the single most amazing place we visited. Under the ...
... up with 2 guys we had met previously in Cambodia and Chiang Mai and got the buckets in in the Irish Bar which was packed! And then bar hopped the rest of the night. It was a good night and we've spent today hungover but it's just been the time where I've finally had to say goodbye to Emily and Kelly as they went to the airport. It seems so long ago I met them on Fraser Island and they've been such a big part of my trip! I won't lie, I obviously shed a few ...
... with Mi and Ma. I stopped on the way to get some lunch and had a mango salad with rice at a street-ish stall in a food court on the way there. It was spicy! I somehow got the idea in my brain that the mango salad would be some kind of lettuce/greens with little pieces of mango. But it's actually a green mango shaved into strips that make up the 'greens' and then there are cashews and mini shellfish of some kind that look like miniature shrimp. ...
