It is not a 5 stars, but a perfect hotel for a couple of days in BKK. Close to all, nice staff, and super pleasant pool in the centre of BKK. Multi shops street at 200 m. A bit old, need some renovations, but for 2-3 days it is ok. Nice lunch, 180 bath for all in buffet, and only... More

We stayed at the Royal Hotel for 3 nights when first arriving in Bangkok from the UK. Very convenient for Khosan Road and night food stalls. Makes a good base for central main attractions. Rooms basic and clean although décor is dated and in need of refurbishing. Staff helpful. Breakfast included and very good - lots of choice, both Western... More

This is a late review. I booked a twin room for five nights at the Royal Bangkok Hotel during my trip to Bangkok with my niece. The online rate was ridiculous low and considering the hotel's central location I did not hesitate to here. The twin room was OK though they can still improve on the lighting to give it... More

I stayed at this hotel one night on my own and one night after I joined a tour. I’d stayed here three times previously. The hotel shows it’s age, but the room I had was spacious and clean. The bed was a little hard for my liking. There was a desk, a wardrobe and large bathroom with a shower/bathtub combination.... More

I was here to meet a tour group. The people at the front desk were not that helpful. Internet is VERY expensive. I heard they tack on a huge fee if they call you a taxi. The room was fine, nothing fancy. Breakfast was very good. I suppose if you are just in Bangkok of a day or so and... More

Room not really nice. If we compare prices with other places, it's expensive. Really nice with included breakfast. Place in the middle of historic area in Bangkok, really good, quiet but close to popular places

We didn't have a choice on where to stay as we went to Thailand on a tour. If you do have the choice on where to stay in Bangkok stay well away from this place. Yes the location is brilliant, which makes it even more shocking why the place is so awful. Simply put the entire building is dirty, we... More

We stayed in Bangkok for 3 nights and booked a package with transfer, tours, ... which included this hotel. The staff was nice and friendly. The breakfast was good, not many things to choose for "western style" but what the offered was good (toast, fried egg and ham). The location is really good, close to Khao San road (5 min... More

Royal hotel Bangkok A faded gem architecturally that seems to live on past glories and coach tour parties. Very conveniently located for the sites of central Bangkok. Breakfasts were a limited mixture of Western and Eastern food. The rooms are comfortable but noisy at the front of the hotel and wifi is only available in the lobby and costs 150... More

A faded glory! What a pity that the maintenance is lacking because the architecture is stunning. Rooms are adequate and clean, although the bed and pillows very hard and everything is worn or needing maintenance. Very convenient position, within walking distance to Grand Palace, Reclining Budda and river. Reception staff most unhelpful, but dinig room staff pleasant. Pom, in the... More
