“Great location, small but comfy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Bangkok for a week in a superior room. First off, the room is very comfortable, with a large shower, quality bed, and outlets that accept US plugs. The upper half of the bathroom corner is a window covered by wooden blinds, and while they're obviously there for aesthetic purposes, I had a tendency to walk into said blinds while aiming for the bed. Sort of a hazard there. The hotel provides complimentary bottled water and the usual instant coffee and tea. The miniature refrigerator is packed with items that you pay for, however, so there isn't all that much space if you decide to stock up on things from Big C--I wound up fitting a bottle of milk and two packets of fruit at a time.

This hotel does charge for internet, which is a terrible inconvenience, unless you have another deal worked out through IHG Rewards or a group block. The food downstairs also adds up, and you may be better off visiting street vendors just around the corner if you're on a bit of a budget. Additionally, the maid had a tendency to take used robes without replacing them, though two phone calls to the front desk fixed that issue.

Speaking of the front desk, don't be hesitant to ask the concierge for help--he booked us some outstanding Thai massages at Health Land and made other recommendations to our group.

The greatest advantage of this hotel is probably its location: right at the end of the driveway is an entrance to the Chitlom BTS Skytrain station, and a short walk away is the Ratchathewi, so you're pretty much set for any place you want to go in Bangkok.

Paradise, an Holiday Inn?! It was if you had just fled from the appalling Miracle Suvarnabhumi (see my review) Even in normal circumstances one would have to say this is an Holiday Inn at the top of its game. The hotel's own public spaces & restaurants are first class but one can also use the facilities of the adjacent InterContinental including its excellent business centre.All the staff we dealt with were helpful & efficient during our four night stay. I thought the tariff was very reasonable.

Really good hotel offering excellent service and located adjacent to Skywalk and Skytrain. Close by are some outstanding shopping Plazas including the not to be missed The staff are an absolute delight where nothing is too much trouble. Make sure to have the breakfast, there is no better way to start the day.

This hotel has it all. It is within 2 minute walking distance to Central world center and 1 minute walk from Chitlom MTS sky train.

Don't let the outside of the building fool you, the rooms are modern and spacious. The bed was a little too soft for my lower back, but still a great room.

In addition to breakfast, the hotel offers a buffet lunch and dinner for the best price ever, 350 Thai Baht net!! Super value.

I'm sorry to say that one thing overwhelmed all other aspects of our stay: the fact that we were put in a smoking room. Either their non-smoking rooms leave a lot to be desired (honestly, who puts a non-smoking room on a smoking floor?), or they lied through their teeth when we realized we had been put in a smoking room and asked for another and they told us our room already was non-smoking.

All of our things smelled like smoke, and we had to keep the air constantly running else the smell came back even worse. And whatever miracle housekeeping fix they have to make the room smell better (I'm guessing febreeze?) never showed up after we complained.

Honestly, the response to "but there's a (obviously used) ashtray in our room should never be "oh, we can remove that." Removing an ashtray does not a non-smoking room make.

Needless to say, we won't be returning. I'll check out one of the Hilton properties instead.

Stayed one night.
Excellent location.
Overall very nice stay.
Room size was good but no bathtub in Superior room.
Staff was very kind except the female receptionist when I was checked out.
As IHG platinum member, I was waiting check out IHG club desk.
After one gentleman check in, I was sitting the chair.
She was maybe very busy that she can not sit down the chair, no eye contact but soft when you said but you knew that she was not with me.
I would like to share her name here but thanks god she did not wear the name badge. She even did not say thank you for staying with us or good bye.
I think she ruin my whole comfie stay with them.
They should know that there are many other options in Bangkok.
