“Another Great Stay at the GP”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2009

My recent stay at the Grand President was another success. I've been staying there for the past 10 years and have been consistently impressed with the overall hotel service. Add to this the hotel's good location on Sukhumvit Soi 11 near the skytrain, Grand President is the prefect hotel for either tourists and long term visitors to Bangkok.

Have been to Bangkok 3 times in the past 13 months and I love staying at the Grand President. Entire staff is very friendly and location is very convenient. Booked a Royal Suite for a very good price. Washer and Dryer combination in the kitchen helps a lot with washing casual clothes. Breakfast buffet is great especially the chef who cooks eggs and omelettes to order. Hotel allows guests to visit with no problems. Only negative is that the mini bar sometimes was not replenished in a timely matter so I ended up being charged twice for some items. Will definitely stay here again.

As every year I have also spent the winter season 2008/2009 in Thailand. And no doubt that during my stay in Bangkok I have lived some weeks in ”my” appartment in Grand President, my favorite place over years. A place you can spend relaxing days in a pleasant and convenient surrounding - inside and outside of the Hotel. A considerate staff, working here over years, welcome you hearty and let you feel from the first moment the good atmosphere which is present in this house. When ever you arrive or leave – a friendly smile accompanies you on your daily way. Correspondending to the special character of the hotel there are also the special customers, guests from over the whole world who gather here and whom you can meet in the looby, in the restaurants or on the pool – also sometimes for an interesting talk. So it is not surprising that Grand President is always fully booked, also in times where tourism lacks – like in the past winter season.
I could much more talk about the quality of Grand President, but I will shorten it with my thanks to everyone equally management and staff. Their kindness and careness make every stay in Grand President to a cosy and home-loving one.
Last week Grand President stand on first place of the “Hotel Top Ten list” of “Bangkok.com” – Hotel and Travel Guide.

Have stayed here twice now both times in the same suite near the top floor. Like others have said the rooms are very comfortable but will soon need a spruce up. The beds are comfy , bathroom excellent and lounge/dining/kitchen superb. Breakfast selection is ample and there is always plenty available. There are pools to choose from in all towers and the gym sauna and steam facilities are excellent. All staff we came in to contact with treated us like royality on both occasions , they really do make you feel welcome. The central location of GP is excellent , easy access to BTS at nana and many good restaurants and shopping. One problem we encountered numerous times was the taxi mafia parked out front of the hotel , they are very expensive , over familiar and to be avoided. If you want a cab there is a girl at the entrance to tower 2 who will organise a meter cab for you. Overall 4 out of 5...Thanks GP , we will be back.

I have stayed at Grand President on many occaisions over the last 10 years and I believe the hotel provides:
- Great value for money
- Good accomodation, nice rooms, which are well designed and well kept and upgraded constantly
- Great choice of restaurants in or around the hotel, and a very affordable good choice in room service menus
- A great location in the heart of the city near a BTS (sky train station)
- The staff is professional, they go all the way to accomodate requests, and most of them have been working at the estate for many years.
- Nice pool area and the gym is quite good
- Good internet service (it has so far worked on the first attempt....)

I booked a stay for my parents at the end of their Asian cruise trip the end of November. They were supposed to stay in Bangkok for 4 nights before flying back home to Vancouver, however, the night before their flight protesters took over the both airports and they were stranded along with a few of their friends also staying at the Grand President!

The staff and management was extremely helpful during this time, helping them to get in contact with the right authorities to find out information and even offering them complimentary long distance calling so that they could keep in contact with me in Vancouver. There were no issues extending their stay at the hotel, and the current Hotel Manager, Affendy Ismail took special care of them.

I would highly recommend this property as my parents have told me nothing but good things, even from during the time before they got stranded. They stayed in an Executive Studio in one of the newer towers (I believe Tower 2?) and they found it very comfortable. They definitely recommended staying in one of the two newer towers, like other reviewers suggested.

The location was excellent and even when I tried to find them a second hotel to move into, in case they couldn't extend their stay, they adamantly decided to continue their stay at the Grand President due to the comfort, service and familiarity with the area which is very accessible to local transit.

All in all a very good hotel experience, definitely recommended! Thank you for taking such good care of my parents!
