We have stayed at this hotel many times in the past and always found it great, the position is unbeatable and the staff always friendly and happy. Sadly it has new owners and it is no longer a nice place to stay. The reception staff were hostile and very rude on checkin, it seemed they were doing us a favour... More

Reception - Very very abrupt and rude. They don't have the Thai hospitality and made me feel very awkward when waiting. We didn't even get a hello, it was just a look at us until we said we had a reservation. No information was given to us about anything at all. Had to ring up once in our room about... More

Okay hotel. Close to royal palace and surrounding famous temples. Spacious older hotel with a ambient look, spiral staircase. Chinese tourist hotel. Very good breakfast. Neighborhood on the immediate outside is a little shady. Room clean.

Good clean rooms and with balconies... Nice. Service was ok since communication was difficult. Thai hospitality was not witnessed...perhaps the hot weather. Wifi connectivity poor. Hotel could use its old world charm to attract more tourists

This hotel could do with some renovation, perfect location, but someone needs to do some maintenance. otherwise they are going to loose a lot of money in the future. they also do with WiFi, it's 2016. It is easy to get to from the airport, and walking distance from Khao San Road which is full of nightlife and markets, cool... More

We moved to the Royal Rattanakosin to be near Khao San area. That is near the Royal Palace and many other tourist attractions. This giant hotel fit that bill as it's just a short (under 10 minutes) walk to those attractions. The physical property is a giant rambling old Russian style hotel with little character and the pool was very... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Don't book taxi from the Reception! Prices are too high. Just go outside and you can stop tonns of... More

First thing we were told on arrival was that if we lost the room key we would be fined 1000 Bath. The second thing we were told was that we would be fined 250 Bath if we lost the key to our security box. We had to pay a deposit for each. I felt like I was being treated as... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
