“Wonderful hotel to stay in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

We selected this hotel on the basis of its Trip Advisor rating and we not disappointed. It is in a good central location with easy access to shopping centres. The staff were friendly and in particular the room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom was very generously proportioned (as were the shower and bathtub). With the glass wall between the bathroom and the bedroom, it felt all the more spacious.

Breakfast was amazing. In terms of the range available, we honestly could not think of anything they didn't have. We usually went down to breakfast late and despite there being only 30 minutes left of breakfast time, there was still plenty of choice available.

We used the pool on only one occasion and we have to say it was freezing. We lasted about 20 minutes and it was a big factor in us leaving the pool. There wasn't that much of an atmosphere at the pool bar as it was tiny.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the city as you get to see the lights at night.

Stopped for just the one night but wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and stop there again.

The staff that we encountered were so courteous and helpful it was an absolute pleasure.

The location is excellent for pretty much anything you want to do in Bangkok.

The room was just what you expect of a 5 star and more.

Room Tip: High rooms have less street noise.

An excellent hotel with amazing staff. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Renaissance Bangkok Hotel, it most certainly made my trip extra special. My room had a retro themed decor, was very clean and spacious with an amazing view overlooking Bangkok city, which was wonderful at night. The hotel is in a brilliant location, very near to various luxurious shopping malls and a sky train station. I highly enjoyed the breakfast buffet, one of the best I have had thus far. The hotel staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, in particular the staff working at the front doors and hotel lobby desk. The staff always went out of their way to ensure my stay was perfect and took great care to keep me very happy. Will definitely be staying here again, the next time I am in Bangkok.

My husband & I stayed here when we first arrived in Thailand & it was fabulous! The hotel is gorgeous & the staff is the best. Everyone here was so accommodating from arraigning limo services, restaurant reservations, detailed information about where to go & just being so gracious. Ms. Benchawan, at Flavors restaurant gave us such good ideas about where to go & how to get there & was just an absolute doll. Our friend at the concierge desk was also hugely helpful & patient with all our questions. The hotel is extremely clean, beautifully decorated & is centrally located to shopping & downtown. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through Bangkok.

Room Tip: We stayed in the royal orchid suite 1815.

Stayed at the hotel for three nights from 14 - 17 Jun 14. Room was ok and nothing impressive. I am discontented with the following:

1. Dark corridors outside rooms. Potentially dangerous and waiting for crimes to happen. You cannot even see the far end of the corridor clearly during the day let alone at night, a typical scene of a Thai horror movie.
2. Breakfast at the restaurant was good, but services were not warm, as compared to the staff serving the Whites. No smiles to me and other Asians, as I have observed. Giving us the impression that they wanted us to eat and go, and that "you are taking spaces away from the Whites, and no, we would not entertain you further."
3. Access to the hotel was awkward and tedious, as you would have to trek along a rundown shopping centre from the train station, about 5-10 minutes. Potentially dangerous at night as it is dark and road is uneven leading to the hotel.

With all those mentioned, you can try other hotels such as Pathumwan Princess or Shangri-la Bangkok, with far better services and ease of mind staying there.

Dear Zaryline,

Thank you for your feedback on your hotel stay on this forum. I am sorry to read that you felt discontent with the points mentioned in your review. The hotel is very centrally located and the BTS is right at the front of the hotel. The walk to the BTS is very well lit during the evening and is easily accessable.

I would like to mention that we take the safety and security of our guests and ambassadors very seriously and am sorry to read of your perceptions about the lighting on the guests floors.
Thank you for choosing to stay with us and safe travels ahead,

Kind regards
Blair.

The hotel is located in a really great area, honestly!
We were first lost and having trouble finding it. After leaving the airport, we took the airport line, and get off the train line at Ratchaprarop station, and accidentally we need to walk through the water-gate market in a hot and humid weather. Later, we realize it was a lot easier if we transfer at Phaya Thai station and transit to Chitlom. It is only 1-2 mins walk from the chitlom station.
The service was great and the staffs were being really nice. They helped out making lots of restaurants reservations for us, and even prepare a birthday cake in our room.
It is a nice hotel choice in BKK, especially the location! strongly recommended. You really want to live right next to the station, believe me!
