“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

We prefer this hotel to any other first class hotel in Bangkok. The world famous Mandarin Oriental, still favoured by visiting heads of state and which used to be consistently voted the best hotel in the world, is to my mind looking a bit dated and pretty small. The even more expensive Peninsula hotel, just across the river from the Oriental, too austere although rooms have excellent views and the service is superb. We also like the Conrad just off the busy Sukhumvit shopping street (intriguing ultra-modern bedroom designs, quality food especially breakfasts, great swimming pool area) and the Shangri La but Dusit Thani is our first choice. Why?

Location is ideal being adjacent to both the Sky Train and the new Underground station at Sala Daeng. The BTS and the MRT being between them by far the best ways to travel round Bangkok in swift air-conditioned comfort rather than face the congestion of the Capital’s road traffic by taxi or tuk tuk. Also, the hotel is next to the Patpong night markets and plenty of other shops and restaurant choices within easy walking distance. Just across the road is Lumpini Park if you wanted to jog around the lakes, or simply take a slow stroll in pleasant green surroundings. .

The hotel itself is spacious with many different bars, restaurants and lounges to suit every taste. The swimming pool, although being in central Bangkok, is nevertheless strategically placed to get the sun from mid-morning right through to early evening. The outside walkway up to the pool is beautifully landscaped with several alcoves housing small tables and seats for more intimate seating areas. Lots of little touches which make a difference e.g. at the pool, the attendant comes round frequently with complimentary fresh iced water, cool towels, plates of fresh fruit. The gym is extensive with much modern equipment. The breakfasts are superb. The rooms are very good. We decided to upgrade for our second and final stay on our month long “round Thailand” holiday this year to a “mini-suite” (room 1002). Fabulous. Very spacious, great balcony, every conceivable facility from the now mandatory free WIFI service, not one but two wide screen TVs, fridge, coffee machine etc to some more unusual ones like, how shall I put this delicately, a toilet that cleans you up and dries you without the need for toilet paper!! Different settings for man or woman and differing temperatures of heated seat and water pressure. We thought that was simply a gimmick at first, but it proved to be very effective and, of course, very hygienic!! Service throughout the hotel is excellent.

The only downside, which is probably common to most hotels, is that the restaurant prices were two or three times what you would pay for similar meals in any one of several good quality restaurants only a short walk away. Having said that, a visit to the top floor bar is a wonderful experience given the fabulous views across the whole city.

All-in-all a superb hotel we would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony are worth paying extra for and, if you can afford it, then a mini suite is wond...

We stayed for 5 days and really enjoyed the whole experience. Glamorous entrance and reception area with live music in the evenings - a choice of different bars/restaurants for casual, formal or 'alternative' eating and drinking. Good size pool with pool-bar service. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable with free Wi-fi. Buffet breakfast was superb; choose your egg/omlette style/ingredients. Staff friendly and helpful; they even helped us put up celebration posters and balloons in the breakfast restaurant.

We stayed at this hotel on the evenings of 26th and 27th February 2013, and were very impressed. We had upgraded to a Club Room prior to our arrival, and we were pleased to discover that we had been further upgraded to an Executive Suite when we checked in. So a good start!

I have read other reviews stating that this hotel is a little tired, but I couldn't see that at all. It is a grand, rather luxurious place, a "proper" grand hotel. The Club Lounge was comfy and couldn't be faulted, the bed in the suite was soft and comfortable, and the lifts were swift and efficient. Staff were everywhere and always smiling and happy to help. And the choice of food and drink outlets within the hotel is huge. I had been really looking forward to dinner at the Benjarong Thai restaurant, but unfortunately I felt unwell and had to cancel at the last minute. The menu did look exceptional, such a shame but there you go.

If I return to Bangkok I would certainly consider staying here again. A lovely grand palace of a hotel.

This hotel is not in the congested Silom area so our ride from the airport was pretty smooth considering the horrible traffic in Bangkok.

Dusit Thani is in a convenient location, next to Sala Daeng BTS station and also within walking distance to the nightlife in Patpong. The room was of a fairly high standard although the entrance way into the room was narrow and I could not pass without closing the doors to the wardrobe everytime I needed to change. A bathtub was also absent.

Service was efficient and friendly. Breakfast was good although the staff seemed to be overwhelmed by the morning crowd on my first day (It was a Saturday morning).

What I really enjoyed were the restaurants Benjarong (Thai) and Thien Duong (Vietnamese). Please check out my reviews of these restaurants.

Stayed here for 3 nights in December. Rooms are very nice and roomy with big bathroom. Staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. We were room only so didnt have breakfast in the hotel. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from patpong and the sky train. A great stay and would definetly stay here again as we also stayed in the lebua state tower for a few nights but its not near as nice and friendly.

Very convenient location very close to the sky-train BTS, and underground-train MRT. It is near to the shopping area and entertainment area (Patpong). It is just opposite the Lumpini park. Location-wise this hotel is very good. Comfortable and spacious rooms. The staff is very friendly. Breakfast is very good... In rush hours the traffic is bad.

Room Tip: The view on Rama 4 side is better.

We have just finished a 4 night stay and now on our way South to Khao Lak - having stayed in Bangkok on at least a dozen occasions this is our favourite hotel. The reasons include the people (very polite, friendly and who want to ensure your stay is most comfortable), the location (close to sky train which is gives easy access to great shopping and also the river for the tours) and the quality of the hotel from a food, drink and room perspective. The breakfast is not to be missed and do book this with the room. This is also very close to the new Silom shopping complex which is worth checking out. This Hotel has a golf driving range on a roof which is a must for any golfers - lessons also provided by Doug Hood USPGA Master Teaching Professional. The Dusit chain works for us and we were also very pleased with the D2 Hotel in Chiang Mai.
