Reviewed April 30, 2014

I am a frequent visitor to this hotel over the last years and my most recent visit really impressed me. The staff has really outdone themselves - just excellent at every turn. They anticipated my needs, took great care to help keep me comfortable, were attentive but not obtrusive - it was just a wonderful experience. The service from the greeting at the airport to my departure a week later was consistent and genuine. From the bellhop team to the restaurant staff, Mr. Gilles and Mrs. Ann - everyone took the time to make this say most memorable.

The breakfast buffet is really delicious, lots of interesting variety and a spacious and comfortable restaurant so you don't feel like you are on top of the next guest! And I must finally say - the LM Bed was great! Such a pleasant and deep sleep - and I can't recall this being so comfortable in the past.

I would highly recommend the Plaza Athénée - its a winning combination - great staff, great super central location, proper facilities, a really good spa team, and competitive prices!
Thank you and I look forward to my next trip!

Conveniently located, this hotel provides you with all the luxury you expect of Royal Meridien while combines great location and good prices. The breakfast is excellent and after it you can easily skip lunch. The bathrooms need some renovation, but nothing that would ruin your trip. If you can pay a little extra, it is worth to move to the VIP lounge. You get better and larger rooms, happyhour with free drinks and a comfortable lounge for meetings.

I was there for a conference, also held at the hotel, and the experience was great from beginning to end. The room had all the elements that matter most to me (lots of electrical sockets, big bed, big window, bathrobe/slippers, tea/coffee supplies, good light), the service was top notch, and the food was excellent, both breakfast and dinner (although only tried one restaurant). And it's beautiful. Highly recommended.

Stayed for five nights for a conference and everything was perfect. Check in was swift and courteous; room was large with high quality fittings and amenities; breakfast choice and quality was excellent. I have a Starwood preferred guest membership and I would recommend everyone to apply for membership before staying. It's free and can be done on their website and at this hotel they have a few floors for SPG members. I'm not sure how much better these floors are than the standard ones, but my room was terrific. Especially liked that the room had 6-7 large bottles of complimentary water refreshed every day. The pool area was really pleasant and the staff were all very helpful.

We were at the hotel for one night. From the check in to the check out, the services were superb. Because we visited the hotel the firs time, we were given a very special Thai welcome "bouquet". We were then told to hurry up to go to the lounge before the food would be taken away at 8pm. Great tip. The food in the lounge was plentiful and excellent. We were poured two glasses of wine (free) to go with our food. Because we would leave the hotel at 5:30am to catch the next flight, there were two "breakfast boxes" waiting for us at check out. The box did not contain anything special. But it was the thought and gesture that counted.

In Bangkok, I stayed in the St Regis before. St Regis may be one minor step higher. But considering the price and the services, as aforementioned, I will come back to Plaza Athenee first next time.
