“Stylish Property situated in the best part of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Bangkok is an annual shopping trip for me and the Renaissance is situated in the ideal location for that. Platinum, Central and Siam area all within a 15-20 minute walking distance from the hotel.

Apart from the convenience of location, the hotel is very comfortable and pleasant. It makes for a relaxing atmosphere especially with the pool that is located in the upper floor of the hotel.

Room Tip: The corner rooms are the best as they're a little larger

Dear Serinaa,

Thank you for your review of the hotel and it is great to read that you found our location ideal for your annual shopping trip to Bangkok! We are located in the shopping heart of the city and all your favorite malls listed in your review are a short walk away.

I am glad to read you found the hotel to be comfortable and pleasant and that you could relax while staying with us. The pool has amazing views of the city being on the 23rd floor and is indeed a nice place to unwind.

Please think of us again next year when you return for shopping! Until then safe travels ahead and kind regards,

Blair Fowler

I've stayed at this hotel a number of times while visiting Bangkok on business. The staff is extremely attentive and the hotel offers all of the amenities expected in Bangkok hotels. The location is perfect and easy to catch a taxi or the BTS station only meters away from the hotel. I love the stylish decor and contemporary design. Will definitely stay here again.

Dear Steverisch,

Thanks for your loyalty to the hotel and as a regular guest with us it is nice to read your kind review of the hotel. 'Always Perfect' is a nice comment especially from a frequent business traveller such as yourself.

Its great to read that you find the team of Ambassadors attentive and all the amenities are to your liking. Renaissance hotels are the lifestyle hotel of Marriott International and as such tend to reflect the more stylish décor. Glad you like it!

Look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel on your next business trip!

Kind regards

In the morning it is noisy & can hear from room. The hotel upgrade us to the club room but no club benefits offer to us. Better just upgrade to the corner room cause the club room & deluxe room is the same size & think no different at all. Check in after mid night & request late check out also not allow.

Room Tip: Corner room.

Dear Leslie L,

Thank you for your review of the hotel and thanks for choosing to stay with us on your trip to Bangkok.

Sorry to hear that the room was noisy in the mornings. I would be interested to hear more about your experience during your stay in regards to your room allocation and noise comments. Would you be so kind to email me at blair.fowler@renaissancehotels.com at your convenience?

Depending on our hotel availability we do try to offer our guests late check outs which do come at a nominal fee. I hope to hear from you so I can assist with any further queries you may have.
Thanks for choosing to stay with us once again and I look forward to be able to correspond further with you.

Kind regards

Since I had just received Gold status through Marriott, I thought I'd give the Renaissance a try. I booked three nights for myself and my two girlfriends for a birthday party weekend in Bangkok. Upon checking in they immediately escorted me to the Club Lounge where they completed my details while I imbibed on a complimentary cocktail. Our room was just across from the Club lounge where we enjoyed a 5-star breakfast and cocktail hour every day. The gym was great and the pool was neat (open-air but covered so no need for sunscreen). Perfect location to high-end businesses, shopping, and stumbling distance to one of the hottest nightclubs in Bangkok. Would recommend for either business or pleasure, particularly if you have Marriott Rewards status.

Dear Shannon S,

Congratulations on becoming a Marriott Rewards Gold Elite member! Thank you for your loyalty to Marriott and for choosing to stay with us for your celebration in Bangkok.

As a Gold Elite member, the Club Lounge is a great benefit for you during your stay and its great to read that you enjoyed the breakfast and cocktails daily. Its also nice to read that you found the pool and gym neat. Being open air our guests can enjoy a swim without the direct sunlight which I am glad you liked.

Thank for your recommendation for people to stay either on business sor leisure as the location does cater for all guests.

Congratulations gain and we look forward to having you stay again in the near future… perhaps as a Platinum Elite this time?

Kind regards

Spent 3 nights at the Renaissance for a long weekend recently. The staff were excellent and very accommodating. The food was great in the hotel and we used the Spa twice!
Very good value and great location near the shopping malls.

My husband and I checked into the renaissance after staying at another hotel for 1 night which was completely not up to standard. The check in was smooth and we were treated so well! The hotel is beautiful, the room clean with an awesome view. The staff are warm and friendly at all times! Made our stay so pleasant and special!!
Lastly, the location is perfect. U literally walk into the train terminal from the from entrance.

I stayed at Renaissance Ratchaprasong Hotel with my mom for 2 nights at the end of October. This hotel affiliated with Marriot hotel. So we can use wifi internet access for free only if we are member of Marriot Rewards. The process is easy on the web site. Regarding public area they do not provide access to the Internet.
The location of the hotel is very convenient, you can go to Erawan Shrine, Central World, Isetan, Zen, Gaisorn plaza and Big C by walk within 5 minutes. A convenience store and a foreign money exchange are very near the hotel.
The room is designed mixture of Thai traditional decoration and modern. Its atmosphere is nice and comfortable and bath room is very easy to use for elderly people. We can take a shower with sitting on the bench.
Breakfast restaurant is located on the second floor. The buffet style breakfast enables us to enjoy variety of menu. Especially I recommend fresh vegetable drink. I drank carrot and apple juice for both days. It is very fresh without sugar.
We had room service for dinner and had light meal and alcohol at R bar on the lobby floor. Both were tasty and nice.
There is no security worry. In the elevator hall there was hotel staff to check the visitors. I cannot push the button of the number of floors to drop unless I insert a room key in the elevator.
The only thing I pay attention is that the hallway is dim. Our room was at the end of the hallway and it was very near the elevator hall but the dimness made me feel a little scare.
Anyway mom and I love this hotel and we are thinking of staying again at this hotel next time. Thinking of its location, gorgeous but comfortable atmosphere, tasty food and staff's warm hospitality, everything made me feel satisfied. Next time, I am looking forward to enjoying pool and nice Italian restaurant.

Dear LoveMoon,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for posting such a nice review of the hotel.
Renaissance Hotels are the Lifestyle brand of Marriott International and as such our Marriott Rewards guests are able to enjoy complimentary internet access in their rooms. Wife is also available complimentary in the public areas also. I am glad that you found this useful during your stay.

It is great to read that you found the location convenient to shopping and that you enjoyed the room and breakfast in the hotel. Safety and security of our guests is a priority for us and I am glad you liked the security features of the lifts. The overall design of the hotel is very chic and the guest room corridors are not brightly lit. I am sorry to read you were a little scared.

Thanks for thinking of us again on your next visit to Bangkok. We look forward to welcoming you back and hope you do try our Pool and Italian restaurant on your next stay!

Safe travels ahead and regards
