Advice for Millennium Hilton Bangkok

Hi Guys,

Great Community here!!

Just booked a 5 night stay at Millennium Hilton Bangkok. I was wondering if anyone had anythoughts on this hotel and in particular the King Executive plus suite room here.

I know people say its on the wrong side of the river but iam not too concerned about that.

Is there any tips / advice for a 1st time tourist at this hotel from anyone here?

Thanks again guys!!

Jay

Well, our travel agent who goes over there twice a year just got back and put us in it for two nights - says it's the best hotel she has ever stayed in in BKK - priced very reasonable and fantastic breakfasts!

Hi,

Was there a few weeks ago. Very nice hotel. Only really important piece of advice is to be sure to request a high floor and a room directly overlooking the Chao Praya River. All rooms have pretty good riverviews but those fronting the river and on a high floor are just that little bit more magical/romantic.

No problem with it being on the wrong side of the river as ALL the riverside hotels are located in areas that don't really have much to offer in terms of sightseeing, shopping centres or markets. Their prime attraction is being away from the hustle, bustle and pollution (well, to an extent :-) of the city and their immediate access to the Chao Praya express boat services which allow you to quickly, cheaply and, above all, pleasantly, commute to a variety of attractions or to link up with the Saphan Taksin Skytrain station.

Like all the other riverside hotels, the Millenium Hilton also runs its own shuttle boats. These leave at frequent intervals (we never had to wait) to Saphan Taksin Skytrain station and the adjacent Sathorn(Central )riverboat express (river taxi) jetties, and also across the river to the - in our opinion - virtually useless (unless high end antiques are what you seek) River City shopping centre adjacent to the Royal Orchid Sheraton. There's nothing much to do there but at least you have another option for crossing the river and linking up to the river taxis or hiring a longboat at either the River City or Si Phraya piers.

The last of these shuttles leaves at approx. 23:00 (cannot remember exact time) but this is not much of a hassle because taxis are cheap and plentiful.

One thing to remember: People staying in executive rooms check-in directly at the executive lounge on the 31st(32nd?) floor. We didn't know this and spent a bit of time at reception behind a large group that was also checking in. Let the helpful staff know you're in an exec. room and they'll quickly accompany you to the lounge.

Great views from the lounge and the jazz club above it, by the way.

You can also take breakfast in the lounge but we preferred the greater - or should I say, huge! - variety of foods offered in the regular riverside restaurant. Of course, the hotel was not very busy when we were there. You may prefer to avoid the crowds and stick to the lounge breakfast.

The infinity pool area, while rather small for such a large hotel, was very nice and our family thoroughly enjoyed our late night swim (pool open till 23:00) and lounging while overlooking the Chao Praya River.

Enjoy!

CP
