We revisited the Royal Orchid Bangkok for our 30th wedding anniversary in September 2012 with our three children, after first visiting about 26 years ago. We particularly wanted to return because of the amazing views from the bedrooms which all overlook the river. It didn't disappoint after all these years and has certainly retained the 'wow' factor when you stand and look out over the river and the city, particularly at night - the kids were suitably impressed. You could sit and watch all the river boats and big barges moving up and down the river for hours.
We were upgraded on arrival and all the staff are lovely. The hotel barge which takes you to the skytrain which takes you on to the shopping areas is a delight, particularly on the return journey, when we were handed cold towels and drinks, very welcome in the heat and humidity.
It lived up to expectation and is a real oasis in such a busy city.More
