“Nice but not altogether our style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

We booked through Agoda and got a Superior with breakfast included for something around $70 but even though we booked a non smoking room with a king size bed, we were offered a smoking room when we got there. We had in the back of our minds that we might upgrade to a Deluxe anyway because we had some rewards points up our sleeve when we booked, so this is what we ended up doing.
Found the room bright, spacious and well appointed. Nothing much to complain about in that regard. We found the bed extremely hard and the pillows extremely unsupportive....flattened down to nothing really. No power point in the bathroom for hairdryer was a bit funny.
Mini bar was a bit of a mystery. Apart from the spirits and peanuts on the shelf, the fridge contained 3 different waters (excluding the 2 complimentary) and a toblerone! There was nothing to indicate what they cost despite calling reception who said they would bring the cost sheet up to our room....never came. When I asked again next morning, I was advised they would ask housekeeping to leave one in the room.....never happened. That day 2 juices appeared as well. But I still have no idea what anything cost.
Found the breakfast good with an extensive menu to cover all tastes. Had to request our coffees....nobody comes around asking what you want, yet self serve wasn't an option.
Agree with other reviewers that the staff could be a bit more friendlier and helpful.....a few more smiles. This place was a bit different for us. We usually stay in smaller, boutique style hotels where you get treated with more personal and welcoming attention. We are simple country folk and felt this style of hotel didn't really suit us and would look for something smaller next time.
Having said that though, the hotel has a bit of style and was not that hard to put up with. :)

I stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights. It is just 100 meter from mrt station.

The room really needs a renovation. Furniture and bedding stuffs are quite old. Also, I couldn't adjust the aircon temp at all. It was fixed at 22C. The terrible thing is the toilet. It really needs a fix.

We stayed at this hotel by chance as I hadn't pre booked. Walk in price was expensive for superior room. 4.520 baht. Thank goodness for smartphones with internet as we got a room for just under$71.00 AUD. Large light filled room, no noise and spacious. Nice bathroom but tap fittings badly need changing especially shower head! As it was an overnight stay we ate out with family who live close by(hence the reason for staying in the area). Close to many shops and nightlife also Chatuchak weekend market. Well appointed hotel and location, staff have limited English and could do with a bit more friendliness otherwise couldn't fault.

I stayed here for vacation with tour and travel... I got deluxe room, so it was huge so was the bathroom.. There were shower and bath tub also..
Wooden floor, nice lobby. But sadly, the staff were not so friendly.

Opposite the hotel there were reflexiology place.
The hotel has 2 different restaurant. Western and international (japanesse). I was having breakfast in japanesse hotel. It was not too special there..

Menu was not so many.

Swimming pool: it's huge but windy..
I tried their massage service in my room. The therapist was so professional but sadly there's no special massage oil. They only used baby oil.

Overall it's nice hotel..

The hotel was clean and easily accessible via MRT Huay Khwang
food the spread was good and delicious
too bad no free wi-fi :(
for budget travelers this will do . but not on peak periods i.e school holidays as the hotel will be full of local and non local tourist and will be crowded and noisy

My daughter and i travelled to Bangkok to get some dental work done at Bangkok International Dental Centre. After some research i booked us into the Cha-Da Hotel. We spent 3 very noisy night's in a very creepy hotel. Then we found the Emerald! Wow! It was fantastic! We got a great deal through Agoda. The Emerald is beautiful. The room we stayed in was a little dated but very elegant and comfortable. Great gym and pool facilities. But it's the staff that really made our stay great. A big thank you especially to Chief Concierge Aswan Mendez. He went above and beyond the call of duty to help us.

For last 12 years The Emerald didn't change the style and quality. The value for money: price location and service - I would strongly suggest this place whoever has to stay at Ratchadapisek. In details: the pool is fine, the staff is professional, unfortunately they shut down disco (which was really great 10years ago) but there few things I still like about the Emerald: breakfast and Japanese restaurant on the second floor. If you're for business or just passing through the Bangkok to the South - I think the Emerald is right place.
Btw, we had great friendly parties at that Japanese place for last 10 years, and I would say: Yes, the Emerald is very reliable for that. Anytime you'll feel nice and comfortable there. And, common, the price is good too. I wont go into details about the area, that's another subject.
