Arriving late at night my friend and I had to brave the pimps and pros to walk out to get something to eat. Next morning fitness centre half working machines old style uninspiring pool and Pay Buy The Hour Sauna!!! But wait. Pay by the hour Internet and only one person in the room at a time can use it. Now it's my turn unless I want to pay 6 dollars an hour foe the two of us!! Yeah it's all about the money. Times are indeed tough.. Not staying here again.

Room Tip: Choose a non smoking room coffee in the room would be nice too..

We stayed at the Royal Benja Hotel for 3 nights in August 2012. The hotel is very conveniently situated in a cul-de-sac side road Soi 5 off the main Sukhumvit Road close to restaurants shops and Nana skytrain station but not at all noisy. The room was spacious and comfortable and the bathroom clean and well-equipped. The personnel were polite and helpful, the breakfast varied and copious and the hotel has a swimming pool and bar. Internet is available at a minimal cost;

Room Tip: We had a triple room so perhaps there's less choice - we emailed the hotel asking for a well-sit...

We stayed at the Royal Benja, Bangkok for 2 nights in Aug 2012. The hotel is conviniently situated on Sukhumvit with shops, malls, restaurants, 7-11, and all transportation nearby. The lobby is elegant & well equipped with many elevators. The room we stayed in was very spacious, clean & comfortable. The bathroom was equally roomy with a bathtub too. So much for the positives.
On the downside, they need to work considerably on the breakfast menu since there is hardly any option for a vegetarian. Being a pure vegetarian left me feeling cheated out of pancakes, muffins, basically any palatable item on the menu. The fruit section & bakery section also did not have any options (no rambutans !!!). Also they do not have free internet like most hotels in Thailand. Last of all, the pool is extremely small considering the number of guests the hotel accomodates. It seems to be a mere formality.
But the staff is well behaved & polite. The hotel has a wonderful view of Bangkok city from higher floors. Recommended for a short stay in Bangkok.

We booked this place through a small travel agents in Pataya so we were pleasantly surprised.
The location is perfect for a stay in the middle of Bangkok. It was also very close to the skytrain. We stayed a week and enjoyed it.
The price was fair and the breakfast was good. Rooms were a nice spacious size and the staff (as usual in Thailand) were very friendly,polite,and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for what you require on arrival and I'm sure they will do what they can to help you, it'...

The hotel it self is good with spacious, but very noisy rooms.
The staff and service in the restaurant is horrible and also is the breakfast, not very fresh... with a poor variety. The hotel is located on Sukhumvit which makes it quite nice at daytime but in the evening it's very crowed and hard to get there.
