Finely connected to different routes the hotel is safely accessible to and from.If the demonstration is on wireless road-you can come and go from behind or side whatever need maybe which was very useful if I was staying in Siam Square area or Rajdamri road.The hotel is very well managd great pool,great food and great ball room facilities(I attended a wedding there),fantastic business facilities and great lobby bar.

Room Tip: You can book a front side room overlooking beautiful gardens of US Embassy residentiaL

This is probably my eighth or ninth stay over the years at the Plaza Athenee in Bangkok, Thailand. Things that I really like about Starwood property are its great customer service, including the staff (particularly Khun Nat) of the Royal Club Lounge. Its location close to the BTS Ploenchit Station, wonderful breakfast buffet, the spaciousness of the rooms, and great spa and pool facilities make for a winning combination.

Although there are many good business hotels in Bangkok, this is my favorite hotel for my business trips to Bangkok. The service is good and it is worthwhile to upgrade to the club floor/rooms where the service is excellent. The hotel is walking distance to the MRT and several embassies and office buildings.

Room Tip: You should try to upgrade to club room and floor. It is worth the extra money.

We spent three nights in late Nov 13 and I must say I wished it was longer. We stayed in a Royal Club Room which was perfect for our needs and the Club Lounge access was fantastic. Even by Thai standards the service and attention in the Club Lounge was sensational. Extra special mention must go to Ep who was so friendly and charming and made our stay there really special. Also Nat and Marisa who were great. The location is very close to Ploenchit Station which gives access within a few stops to all the major shopping malls, there is a cut through the adjacent office which gives escalator access to the station if you have trouble with stairs. The hotel is situated about a ten minute walk from Lumpini Park so if you are a keen walker or jogger it is an ideal route to take. Can't say how much we enjoyed this hotel, take the Club Lounge option and relax in comfort after the buzz of Bangkok. Most highly recommended

Room Tip: Royal Club room was perfect for a couple.

My wife and I recently stayed here again as this luxury hotel has all that one could want. Great restaurants, convenient location, professional and friendly staff, as well as comfort and class at every turn. We enjoy the Royal Club lounge benefits and use it as a base for mid-day and pre-dinner drinks and snacks. The breakfast buffet is top notch with the customary great service we've come to expect and enjoy. Smooth Curry stands heads above all other "Thai original" restaurants either in a hotel or elsewhere in BKK. Concierge service is exceptional and I would hightly recommend this hotel to anyone for any visit to the City of Angels. Perfection is hard to come by but Plaza Athenee approaches that standard.

Room Tip: Royal Club lounge is a great addition but all rooms are more than adequate.

As hotels go Athenee was really perfect.

Location is right in the middle of everything so it wasnt far too go to temples or shopping or restaurants or anything. and public transport links from here are good so didnt need to get stuck in traffic much.

The service staff at front office were really professional but at the same time personal touch and nice. Also met one housekeeper who was VERY nice and sweet.

The room was absolutely amazing with a really good view. The bathroom and bedroom were both done with expensive high quality everything. and every amenity was there. Spot on.

This is the first SPG hotel I have stayed in where I really felt they recognised and rewarded my elite status with their loyalty programme.
Upon arrival I was whisked up to the club lounge for check in, offered a drink while they did so. I had arrived early so was offered breakfast while I waited for my room to be made available, papers to read, etc. They upgraded me to a junior suite as that was ready for occupancy before my room.

As it was a suite, the room was spacious and well laid out with a clear sitting area and sleep area. The bed was as comfortable as one would expect from this chain.

The pool area was big, with plenty of available sunbeds when I was there. I also appreciated that I had the choice of which direction I faced without having to re-arrange furniture. The staff by the pool were attentive bringing me a cool towel and fruit nibbles - it is these small touches that make all the difference.

The gym was a decent size with plenty of cardio equipment, a selection of resistance machines and free weights. The one thing I couldn't find was a mat to stretch on.

As I had club level access I ate breakfast there. The selection of pastries, cheeses, meats, fruit and cereals was more than adequate. There was also a chef on hand to cook eggs any way you wanted them. The best attribute though was how much more peaceful it was compared to what breakfast buffets usually are.
I also popped in for some afternoon tea later in the day but did not exploit cocktail time.

Reflexions, the French restaurant on site was world class. The service was aligned to western standards and faultless in its delivery. The food was amazing. I opted for their 4 course deal which they warned me would mean smaller portions than if I ordered a la carte. This suited me just fine.

Silk Road, the on site Thai restaurant could do with some cross-training from their colleagues in Reflexions....or maybe not - perhaps some people prefer the eastern standard of service. The thing that sticks in my mind is the waiter showing me to the table stood between me and my chair, blocking my way and then looking at me strangely wondering why I wasn't proceeding.

Location-wise, it is a short walk to a sky train station which then has you connected to the network.

Room Tip: loved the junior suite they gave me, though I am not sure I would have spent the extra money on it m...
