This is a great boutique hotel to stay at for location and ease of site-seeing around Bangkok. Although we stayed at the Shangri-La for 2 nights (and the Oriental the time before), the Praya Palazzo was a much more special, unique experience and I'd recommend it to friends heading to Bangkok. Being a boutique hotel with not many rooms, the... More

Gorgeous location, and fabulous staff who went out of their way to rectify some issues and problems; pity they couldn't do anything about the pool being unusable. (I would never knowingly stay in a hotel in Bangkok without a pool!) The room was very small and a bit dingy. I am not sure that the description of river room views... More

We had an Amazing experience, very different feel to the standard BAngkok hotels. A historic building worthy of restoration situated on the calm side and end of Bangkok's Chaopraya River... A perfect escape from the usual hustle and bustle of the downtown or sukhumvit area. I guess suitable more for those looking for something unique, relaxing, close to the old... More

Praya Palazzo was a really comfortable base for our days in Bangkok. We stayed for four nights. As a contrast to the hot, hectic city life, we appreciated the nice pool garden and quiet athmosphere. It's really quite unique for this city. The room we stayed in (suite) was not extremely fancy and sparkling, but classic, clean, cosy and comfortable.... More

We read about the Palazzo in our guidebook & were determined to visit for lunch. Our resolve wavered in the face of almost universal ignorance as to its location, but following a series of miss-steps, we were finally collected by Palazzo staff & ferried across to the property.

We were really disappointed with this hotel and thought it was not good value for money. We stayed in Bangkok two nights before travelling to Vietnam.

As a Bangkok resident we travels frequently it is nice occasionally to splurge out and stay somewhere nice in the city. Earlier this year my partner and myself decided to try a special luxury suite package at Praya Pallazzo. It was a terrible disappointment for the 33'000 baht three night (1200USD) package. The tiny room was bland and the relaxation... More

Praya Palazzo combines everything beautiful about colonial architecture and traditional grandeur. I'll start with the aesthetics. When it comes to splendor, Praya Palazzo is stunning. I came in the evening when the garden was majestically lit, lush and well-tended to. If there is a Paradise, this might be it. The staff gave us a tour of the grounds and the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Praya Palazzo is a stylish 17-room mansion with a rich historical background that offers a unique experience for the discerning travelers. Dating back to the ancient kingdom of Siam, the mansion is situated in the heart of Bangkok on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. Ideal for travelers who want to relax while enjoying city life in the oldest part of Bangkok, Praya Palazzo is in walking distance to many historical sites and attractions such as The Grand Palace, The Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn), Chinatown, The National Museum, and Kao San Road just to name a few. Praya Palazzo brings back the sense and lifestyle of the King Rama V period, conveying authentic Thai culture through vision, taste, scent, rhyme and touch. We are proud to offer you personalized service with style but not snobbism, casual atmosphere but not neglect, high standards but not stiffness, simplicity and authenticity. We look forward to sharing with you the passion and love that allowed this residence to stand still today. ... more   less
