“Good Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Went there with family and found it a very nice place. Good spacious rooms and extremely comfortable. Situated in a good location, many shopping places are at walking distance. Good staff and good spread of breakfast too. More than anything, its a very good value for money.

Rent was cheap, but people were friendly and the breakfast was really good. The hotel representatives were helpful to find cabs to airport. They have tuktuk service to the sky train swell. Beside that breakfast was really fresh with lot of variety.

Sukumvit Road is a very busy strip in central Bangkok. Each of the streets leading off Sukumvit is called a Soi. The Royal President is well located on Soi 15. It is a couple of hundred meters from the busy thoroughfare, so it is very quiet for such a bustling area.

10 minutes walk will take you to Sukumvit metro station and Asok train station. The train will take you to Saphan Taksin from where you can catch a boat on the Chao Phrya. Cross Sukumvit and catch the number 2 bus for 30-40 minutes to get to the attractions of Khao San Road and the Royal Palace. Along the way, look out for the shopping district of Pratnam.

Our room on the 12th floor gave us a good eastern aspect of the city. Housekeeping was thorough and even made up our room on those days when we left the hotel late. Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of western and Thai standards. The staff in general were very helpful and polite.

Beware the taxi mafia out the front. If you need a taxi, hail one and make sure they turn on the meter.

Room Tip: There are some large buildings nearby. If a good view is important, then specify it.

I stayed in two different wings,in two different perriod of time. I had the misfortune to stay there when their neighbor was under construction and the noise was awful. In the other wing,across the street,when I was back,after a few days missing,was much quiet. The pool is not very big,but probably because of the noise was empty of people. Position is good because is a very good shopping area around ,and the MRT station is really close (5 min). Everuthing in this hotel is or is looking old. Including the personnel. Probably was a very good hotel,many years ago!

Room Tip: -if you need a taxi for long distances,or for many days, is better to talk with the private taxi dri...

Was here with a girlfriend for 4 nights from 7 Sep 2013 to 11 Sep 2013. How do we reach the hotel from Survarnabumi airport? We took the Airport Rail Express to Makkassan (80 baht). Alight at Makkassan station, need to cross over a railway track to Petchaburi MRT station. There is baggage check at Petchaburi MRT station. Alight at Sukhumvit MRT Skytrain, we were lost to which direction to head up. There is Tourist Information Counter outside Sukhumvit BTS (opp Dunkin Donuts stall). If you need to walk from the Sukhumvit MRT or Asoke BTS station, main landmark to look for is Terminal 21 shopping centre. Terminal 21 Shopping Centre is located at Soi 15 (Lane/Street 15). In Thailand, odd lane numbers are located on same side, even lane number is at opporsite side of the road.You need to walk passed Terminal 21 (Soi 19), next The Westin / Robinson (Soi 17) , walked further until you see S15 Sukhumvit Hotel (Soi 15), then turn in to walk further (You are at Soi 15). You will see The Manhattan Hotel on the left side, Dreams Hotel on the right hand side of the small lane. Walk further till you see Kingston and next is Royal President. In all, it took us about close to 30 mins to reach the hotel doorstep on our own, alongside some taxi drivers poaching and 'trying to be helpful'.

Check-in is smooth. Room on the 8th floor. Main reason for selecting this hotel is due to its kitchenette and late check-out promotion. Please bring toothbrush as hotel do not provide tootbrush kit/set. There is a Tuk-Tuk shuttle service to Terminal 21. Shuttle FROM hotel only, not return trip. Hope the hotel management can consider to provide return shuttle FROM Terminal 21. It will bring LOTS of convenience for the hotel guests whom were too tired to walk from the BTS back to the hotel. Not all hotel guests took taxi or tuk-tuk.

Breakfast is moderate. Not much change in menu. Housekeeping is excellent. Housekeeping lady helped to wash our dishes.

Smooth check-out at 4pm. For return journey, we asked the Receiption to call for taxi with meter to Airport. It cost 375 baht (75 baht for the expressway toll). Reached Survanabumi Airport before 5 pm, about 45 min journey.

We booked this hotel from earlier reviews on Trip Advisor and had a good stay. Its located very conveniently close to Sky train stations and hence gives access to places around Bangkok. There are quite a few Indian Restaurants which are at a walk able distance, which was a definite plus. The Room had a kitchenette and the service staff was very friendly. Breakfast was good and thet also had a couple indian dishes on the menu .The pool was adequate(though we did not have enough time to use it much). We visited during SongKran(Thai New year) and had a good time going around and enjoyed the festivities. Would recommend this for a short stay.
