Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers Bangkok Reviews
Nice luxurious hotel Jun 19, 2011
I stayed for my first and only night in Bangkok before going to Chaingmai. My officemates were in BKK for a seminar hosted by the Bank of Thailand and corporate rate given is only 4000baht per night.
The hotel is right beside the river and provides a nice view of the river and the pool below. The restaurant is also beside the river and the complimentary buffet breakfast could be eaten here. There's a nearby 7-11 where I bought my local sim card and top-up.
The bed is nice and has 4 choices of pillow to choose from. The room is provided with a lot of bottled water. At least 4 for every day of stay. They provide the usual bathrobe, vault, refrigerator, iron, hairdryer, etc. The toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc) provided and they are of good quality. There's no bath salt nor bubble soap tho considering there's a tub. In Shangrila hotels in Phils, they are provided.
Breakfast is very nice, lots of diversity to choose from and could be filling. I was very satisfied with the food and my only issue is the service of the breakfast staff because they could be a bit annoying wehn they interrupt you on a conversation to ask if they could take your unfinished plate. That was a bit disappointing for a luxury restaurant...I expect much better thought service that assists/helps and not annoys...also, they hang a bit too close to the dining guests for my personal convenience and I don't like that....all the luxurious hotels I stayed wasn't like that.
They have a bar inside with a good ambiance but not busy during my stay. Locals sometimes could be seen as a group having some drinks after work.
There are also 2 lounge area for your visitors to wait for you to come down.
The concierge were very helpful and they will make an active effort to get you a cab when you need it.
The Riverside Mall is right beside it and it seemed like a posh mall with expensive restaurants and boutiques. The money changer inside was quite convenient for me to go to tho and unlike other money exchange in BKK, this one, buys and sells foreign currencies. Others only buys fx.
A special service of the Sheraton including the other luxurious hotels such as the Shangrila is that they have a private boat to take their guest along the Chao Phraya river so that could save you 14-25baht per boat ride and of course a more private ride.
Would recommend if you could afford it on its regular rate :)

This hotel has been around for a long time and is ideally situated on the banks of the Chao Phraya river with the River City shopping centre next door and superb views all around from its upper floor rooms. Staff are welcoming, efficient and courteous. Facilities are excellent and prices are reasonable for this five star standard hotel. It has numerous restaurants - all good but don't miss the nightly culture show whilst enjoying the buffet.
Bangkok has many fine hotels and you may find better but this grand old dame suits us fine as it has matured over the years and gives the traveller everthing you want. One of our favourite hotels!
About 45 minutes from the new airport depending on traffic!
