Very friendly respectful staff went out of their way to ensure I was comfortable and well looked after. I stayed for 4 nights during a busy work schedule and no request was too difficult for them. Kritaporn, Fan and the other staff on shift with them were fantastic. Plenty of privacy was provided in lounge areas while also plenty of attention when needed. I will be going back.

Room Tip: Club Level is worth the added benefit.

I stayed with my 20-year old daughter for 5 days as her birthday present. We booked a double room with club floor access. Check-in was efficient and fast. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and well-maintained. A little bit dated, but still excellent. One tip, get a room without a connecting door as we could hear our neighbors talking during the night. We asked for another room which we got immediately. The breakfast buffet leaves nothing else to wish for in terms of choices. My daughter loves pomelo which are not on the buffet all days - but after we asked we got a special plate every morning with fresh pomelo - very attentive. The lounge was spacious and very comfortable. Especially the staff - Paturann and Krittaporn (hope got the spelling right) were extremely attentive and made us feel right at home. We had a midnight flight home and checked out at 3. We could use the pool and lounge the whole rest of the day though, and the final nice touch was that we could even use shower facilities on the lounge floor before we left for the airport. Wished we could stay longer.... We'll be back!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms with connecting doors

Myself and colleagues from both the U.S. and countries in the region stayed at the Plaza Athenee from June 16 - 23 for a week-long meeting. The hotel was excellent in all respects...location (close to shopping and the Sky Train), size of the rooms, decor, cleanliness, great food and most of all - a tremendous staff that had only one thing in mind - their guest's satisfaction. The conference staff worked tirelessly during our meetings to make them a great success. And the 4th floor pool deck is aptly named "The View" and is great. All-in-all, a great stay and I would recommend the Plaza Athenee to anyone who plans a visit Bangkok.

I stayed at the Plaza Athenee in Bangkok last weekend (20/06/12) with my husband and two friends in two junior suites with access to the club lounge. Where to begin? It was my first time in Bangkok which can be overwhelming at the best of times and Plaza Athenee was a retreat in the middle of the Bangkok chaos. Staff were professional and generous with their time and effort. The rooms were exceptional, clean, spacious and I have never slept so well in a hotel bed. The food at the hotel and club lounge were delicious and the Rain Tree breakfast will keep you going untill dinner time! Plaza Athenee is such excellent value for money and do not leave untill you have tried the Thai Green Curry in their restaurant "Smooth Curry". Honestly the hotel was so good it was hard to leave to see the sights of Bangkok! My one and only problem was the pool was freezing and I have no idea why as it was outside with the sun shining on it?!

Room Tip: For a few extra bucks I would recommend going "club lounge". Free glorious food and cockta...

I stayed in this hotel at the beginning of this March and it was my first time. The hotel is in a great location. It is only 5~10 minutes walk to the Ploenchit BTS Skytrain station. There was also a 7-11 convenience store in the 1st floor in the station. The room space was big. It was also clean & comfortable. The bed was also great. Both my fiancee and I slept very well. The breakfast was also good and there were a lot of dish selections. I believe you can save your lunch money if you have it around 09:00. I saw the swimming pool but my schedule was too tight so that I had no time for it. It was really a great pity. I will spend time on it next time.

By the way, it seems that the room decoration needs to be renewed because you can see that it is a little bit aged hotel from some details.

Snagged a room at this hotel for a very competitive price on one of those "mystery hotel" packages, which inlcuded breakfast and internet. The hotel, while certainly no longer new, for the most part maintains itself at 5-star standards. Room was clean and very comfortable; staff was friendly and helpful. The internet service worked smoothly and quickly. The breakfast buffet was truly top-notch -- a fantastic variety of excellent food (including some very tasty Thai goodies.) The gym, while not large, had good equipment and the pool was pretty.

My only complaint was the elevator service, which on occasion was maddening. (Staff told me there was a group of VIPs on the top floor and the elevators had been commandeered for them. Good for the VIPs; bad for the customers.)
