“Excellent hotel in central shopping area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

Booked this hotel with a wego voucher, turned out to be a great deal considering our experiences. From arriving and being led to the 17th floor sky lobby, to the welcome drinks, we could already feel the warm welcome and attentiveness of the staff. They also realized that it was my birthday and provided a cake to our room, top marks for that!

The regal suite was great with a living area and bedroom, large and clean and the apple TV was a enjoyable surprise. Bed was comfy and there was a choice of different types of pillows offered by the hotel. Swimming pool on the eight floor was just about right, our 1 year old enjoyed splashing about. Only suggestion for the hotel would be the breakfast, variety is quite limited and as we had breakfast for 4 days, there were no changes in the menu.

Location wise, it is directly opposite from the British embassy, our cab from the airport got us on the right road, but took some time to pin point the hotel (for reference it cost us 400 baht). It would help if you request the hotel to email you the address in thai to show to the cab driver. It is a 5 minutes walk to the Phloen Chit BTS and you have to climb some stairs to get to the station. We found that you could walk through Wave Place, which is an adjacent building, take the escalator up and walk through to the BTS walkway, it would save climbing 1 flight of stairs. With the BTS it is very convenient to get to the various places along the BTS line, Siam (Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery Center), Chit Lom (Central World), Asok (Terminal 21), Thong Lo (Sukhumvit Soi 38 street food - nights only), Mo Chit (Chatuchak weekend market). Go to the Saphan Taksin station (by changing skytrain lines at Siam station) which is directly above the central pier to take a river taxi on the Chao Praya River.

One could also walk from the hotel to Central Chit Lom (10 minutes) and another 10 minutes could get you to Central World. We did this at night, when it wasn't so hot.

We had a wonderful trip to Bangkok, great shopping and dining, and Sivatel Bangkok made it a welcome home of us during this time.

Location: Just 3-5 minutes' walk to the Phloen Chit BTS Station, much more convenient than expected. Just 2 stations to Siam and 1 station to Central World!

Room: I stayed in the cheapest room but the room is very huge with a spacious sitting room and open closet, as well as a bathroom with both bath tub and shower! FREE wifi is provided at a very high speed! And the room is even equipped with Apple TV so that you can browse the Internet with the TV and the wireless keyboard provided! It's so convenient!

Swimming pool: Big enough for a hotel with only 70 rooms! Sunbath chairs are always available. You can relax by the pool, enjoying the light music and free wifi! Very nice!

Breakfast: I saw quite a nunber of people complaining about the breakfast at Sivatel Bangkok. I do think it is OK provided that my favourite food for breakfast is available, including bacon, omelette, toast, fresh fruits, juice, grilled tomato, roasted potato, fried eggs, french toast.......and etc.

Service: Check-in was very fast. A delicious welcome drink and cold towel were served. And a lady would introduce the facilities at the room for you!

I highly recommend this hotel to you!

Bed fantastic really comfy and had a very good night sleep.
Fantastic view of the British Embassy.
lovely toiletries Moulton and Brown
Very central location

Bad Points

Came back from busy very hot tiring day at 4.00pm to find the cleaner only just started cleaning room so asked him to finish and leave asap just needed to refresh etc before going out to a show.

Breakfast room on 8th floor was tiny and struggled to cope with the guests and sit them all down in fact elderly gentleman and his son had to wait whilst other folks finished.

Room Tip: overlooking the british embassy are nice lots of lights at nights

We stayed at this hotel first in September 2011 followed by a second visit April 2012 - I notice how busier it is getting as the secret is out.....

We took a grand room on our first 5 day visit followed by a standard room for our second trip (there's little difference).

The rooms are spacious with seperate lounge, walk in robe and large bathroom and both had excellent views of the downtown area. Clean, quality furnishings and very attentive staff.

Infinity pool on 8th floor great too..apple tv to both bedroom and lounge outstanding and real distinguishing feature of this hotel.

Location excellent being near Ploenchit BTS for sky train and halfway between shopping at Siam/Pratunam and the bars,etc of Sukhummvit.

Appears the hotel has reacted to earlier comments that breakfast service could improve by implementing some staff and service style changes to improve the only fault I could find. Really am struggling to find fault with the hotel, please keep up the good work Sivatel, maintain your standards without getting carried away and increasing your rates and you'll be #1 on trip advisor in no time....

Room Tip: Take a base/standard room. Has all you need and more......

This very new hotel conversion from an apartment block is located second from the sky train stations and only one stop on the sky train from retail therapy paradise in downtown Bangkok.

The infinity pool with a spa area, gym and restaurants on the 8th floor were all excellent and the view from the pool at sunset just magical ( and great cocktails served to your lounger. Even better was the view from my room and bathroom on the 27th floor.

We had a two bedroom suite with two huge bathrooms and a very spacious living room. We had three interactive TVs with internet access via remote from your bed or sofa and all sorts of high tech goodies.

One drawback was the rather random times for room cleaning - anything between 8 am and 6 pm abut the service was good.

I was rather taken aback when, having stayed in bed with a dodgy tummy while my friend went out exploring, an older woman let herself into my room accompanied by two large young blokes in street clothes. As this was outr first day I thought it was just room service and was a bit puzzled by the way they scuttled out and then had a big huddle in the corridor for more than 10 minutes. In retrospect the next day i realised they were not hotel staff as they did not knock or remove their shoes when entering our foyer - as all other staff did during the rest of our stay. As this hotel is above an office block you might need to make sure you are vigilant about security - I had a ring disappear from my room sometime during a time when we were in the lounge room one evening and service staff were in and out fixing the computer. Didn't realise it until later.

Room Tip: We had a regent suite on the 27th floor in the corner - views over 180 degrees above Bangkok were sp...

Thess are the likes and dislikes of my hotel stay:

LIKES:
1) Luxurious comfy room- Room was a huge suite. 80 sqm. The room was very comfortable and spacious. The bed was one of the largest & most comfortable I have ever slept in in all my travels.
An oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. Wonderful place to go back to after a day of shopping. 
2) Staff very friendly and provided service akin to a Thai resort, even though this was a city hotel. They would smile and greet you, and were prompt in meeting requests, like when I asked for ice or assistance.
3) I also asked about a DVD player in the room before arrival, and the staff took the initiative to fix up one In the room for me without extra charges (I did not ask for it to be installed).
4) Very tech-savvy. They use Apple TV and Internet TV in the room. Room has 2 sets. One in the living room and one in the bedroom. 
Room also has an iPod dock. V useful. 
5) Location of hotel is abt 1 min walk from the Pleonchit BTS Skytrain station. That is 1 stop away from Chitlom station (central world, Amarion plaza, Gaysorn) and 2 stops away from Siam station ( Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery). 
Sky Lounge is a relaxing place to chill out and sip afternoon tea and read. 

DISLIKES:
1) Fixed shower head in bathroom. Would be good if there was a flexible shower head. Easier to shower.

2) Cable TV channels on Apple TV not very clear. Hotel should upgrade to a higher generation of Apple TV and check clarity of programmes shown. No point having so many channels but all are unclear

3) Location of hotel is convenient in that it is v near a BTS station. Unfortunately , it is located in a commercial district therefore there are very few restaurants or food courts within walking distance of the hotel. Nearest one is one sky train station away at Chitlom.

4) Breakfast spread is very average. Almost the same spread everyday. But at least they have an omelette station where you can order eggs.
