“First class in every way”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

We had such an amazing stay here - can't fault the place really!

Location - you're quite close to phloen chit bts station, which makes it very easy to get anywhere. The front of the hotel is opposite the British embassy, so you get an amazing view of the city (we were on the 23rd floor).

Staff - so friendly and helpful! Also spoke flawless English too. We were made to feel very welcome the moment we got out of the taxi. On arrival we were whisked up to the 17th floor reception and given a really refreshing drink (unlike what we were given at other hotels in Thailand!). Once we were checked in we were taken up to our suite and given a full tour...

Room - we opted for a suite... and it was the right choice! It was huge and had an incredible view over the city - the best view we've had of any hotel anywhere! We had a separate living room and bedroom (very handy) and a proper 40" TV in each room. The bathroom was massive too. Only minor things worth noting were the shower (warranted extra jets really and water collected at one end but was sorted by room service each day) and a slight smell of sewage, but that can be a problem anywhere in Thailand! If you have a search on YouTube you should be able to find a good video of the suite.

Food - we had breakfast included and it was well worth it. Fantastic selection on offer and all of a high standard. Again the staff were impeccable.

Overall it really is fantastic and we'd recommend the place to anyone!!!

Bangkok tip - go to chatachuk market at the weekend... it is incredible!!

We have stayed for 5 nights, with a 2 bedroom suite, and separate living room.. The bathrooms are huge, and fresh, the windows are ceiling to ground, but more importantly the bed is amazingly comfortable and the pillows are excellent.. There are TVs in each room, complimentary internet access, and breakfast, 100 metres off sukimvit, and right on the ploenchit sky train route, this made access around the city.. An hour in a taxi was replaced with 15 minutes on a train..beautiful pool..but i would advise, as the road system is one way out the front, of the hotel, to walk up to world place on the corner to hail a taxi. Can't really fault the hotel at all

Room Tip: The corner suites have an excellent outlook,and the space is well appreciated.

I stayed there 2 nights. Overall, I was not disappointed with the hotel, however, due to it having no real reception in the lobby, as well as one or no members of staff in attendance, you may as well check in with a credit card.

Normal TV movies channel were ancient, with Rockie and Saun Connery bond movies. I could not access the paid TV and when I enquired, was informed it has not worked since they opened 7 months ago.

I paid £100 a night including breakfast. I went to the Infinity pool after a long day; it was unheated and too cold. I enquired if I could use the sauna and was informed I would have to pay a supplement, which for 99% of hotels around the world is free, regardless of room tariff.

If you enter the priority lounge again, after you have been checked in, it’s almost like, what are you doing in here. The fridges were empty with not even water in them. .

I would recommend this hotel to business travelers only as the rooms are superb, but there is absolutely no atmosphere.

Excellent place. Stayed one night on two occasions and both were great. Stayed in a regal suite for the same price as a standard room in Australia or a fairly bad on in London. You won't be disappointed with rooms.

Don't know about restaurant but room service was nice. Breakfast .... Ok. Bar was very quiet whilst I was there. Beer not the cheapest in town.

My husband & I stayed in the Sivatel for 3 nights in September 2011. We've been to Bangkok numerous times before but had previously always stayed in the Siam Square area due to the proximity to shops & restaurants. However based on the reviews on TA and the fact it appeared to be a very new hotel that was centrally located we decided to give it a go.

Even though the hotel is not located in the heart of the shopping district, we found the location to be fine since it was literally a 3 minute walk to the skytrain station (Ploen Chit) and was only 1 stop away from Chit Lom (already where the shopping is). The hotel appears to be located in the embassy district with the British Embassy right across the road.

The lobby is not actually located on the ground floor, although there are hotel staff there to greet you & escort you to the lobby which is on the 16th (?) floor. Check in was very friendly & efficient with cold drink offered and the front desk staff personally escorting you up to your room.

The rooms are one of the largest I've stayed in & great for those who love their technology! Very modern & clean. Separate lounge area to the bedroom (separated by glass wall & door so perfect if you wish to stay up watching tv whilst your partner sleeps), motorised blinds in both room & lounge and the very funky Apple tv units in both the lounge & bedroom! This meant not only do yo have cable tv in both rooms but you can also surf the internet in both rooms on the tv using keyboards that come with the Apple tv units. Very cool! There's free wifi too which is a must nowadays.

Absolutely huge bathroom with corner spa & separate shower. There's also a separate walk in wardrobe with in room safe.

The pool area is gorgeous with views of the city as its located on one of the high levels. Didnt' get to swim but was gorgeous when we went to check it out in the evening.

Just a tip - since the hotel is quite new some taxi drivers don't know it. I had come from phuket so had asked the previous hotel staff to write the name & address of the hotel in Thai for me. Just as well I did since the taxi driver in the airport had never heard of it & had to rely on my written address.

All in all I would stay here again. If I had to be very critical I would perhaps say that since the hotel is so new it perhaps feels a tad sterile & perhaps not as much atmosphere as other hotels? And if you're looking for a hotel where you can step out & wander around at night this isn't it since there's nothing much open around the hotel at night & is more of a commercial area.

However thats just being picky & if you want a modern, clean new hotel with huge rooms & some tech then this is the place for you!

Worth every penny. This is a top quality hotel, brand new with a superb pool, excellent gym, rooms to die for (especially the suites!). The much-loved high tech Apple TV systems are a genuine delight. Only 10 mins walk to Nana Plaza and all Bangkok within easy reach via Skytrain (nearest 2 minutes' walk away).
