We stayed as part of a big group and the hotel was very nice. We got to the hotel and there appeared to be a mix up with our original reservation as we had previously booked over the phone the day before. However on arrival they sorted all 15 of us in rooms of a good quality. The rooms were a decent size, very clean and modern.

The bathroom was very bright and again clean. The hot water only works during certain timings but this wasnt too much of a problem. I think it comes on about 4 hrs in the morning and then the same in the evening.

We had dinner and breakfast here and both times the food was lovely so no complaints there. Dinner in particular was very nice. The restaurant is small however so I am not sure how they would accommodate all the guests if they wanted to eat breakfast there. There are a few more seats and tables outside the restaurant with a view of the swimming pool.

We didnt have time it try the swimming pool so I cannot comment on it but it looked clean.

Wifi is chargeable, I think it was something like 200 Baht for 12 hours. You need to log onto the website and add a code then when you are not using it log off, I have only ever seen this at one other hotel before in Paris and it can get a little annoying at times.

The hotel is in a great location in order for you to explore Bangkok.

Overall it was a great stay and I have no complaints whatsoever!

I spent about 2 weeks overall at the Swan during Jan./Feb. of this year. It was a tad overpriced but not distressingly so. Rooms are OK, decent pool, small restaurant with a small bar (closes about 2200), and a small internet cafe (but you will be charged extra by the hour or half hour). Overweight, out of shape barbarians beware-there are no elevators! Some of the staff speak passable English and I think one member spoke a little Japanese. My biggest language issue, as a native English speaker, wasn't with the staff. It was with the well-heeled, arrogant European non-native English speakers who were sometimes demanding & abusive in speaking with the poorly-paid Thai staff. Hell, I couldn't understand their English at times - how did they expect these poor Thais to do so?

For budget, backpacker travellers coming into Thailand (via Bangkok) for the first time, I might suggest this: spend the first two nights at the Swan and then get a budget hostel place or go to wherever you're going to (e.g. the south beaches).

stayed here for 3 days, lovely pool, good food, good prices all round. oldish but clean. had a small bug attack, small ants in room, could have got the hotel to spray but just lived with them.
very helpful with storing luggage and early check in. close to ferry, longish walk to sky train, location is great and taxis cheap.
just round the corner is the oriental nice for high tea and jazz in the evening. 2 blocks away is the state tower sky bar and within a good walk is the golden budha, railway station and river city.
my 4 star rating is relative to the fantastic price at this hotel.

For a middle range hotel in Bangkok area, Swan Hotel is the best choice to stay. Located in Charoen Krung street give a plus point and close to anywhere. Few minutes walk to the pier that will take us to the Chao Phraya river transportation experience, less than 7 minutes to the busy night life along the Silom Soi, just 11 minutes walk to Lumphini Park and more and less 15 minutes walk to the skytrain. The room was quite big with a standard amenities, clean, the staff are very helpful and the pool is the best spot in this hotel after a long hot day especially during March-April. Highly recommended this hotel for it value and location ^_^

Room Tip: choose the rooms with pool side view!

Great staff. Comfy big bed. Stayed in a double room. Pool is a plus after being out in the oppressive Bangkok in may heat. Tv has some English channels. Al jazzera bbc and a movie channel. Stayed here at the end of a three month trip. Anyone who poorly rates this hotel needs to adjust their expectations of Thai mid range hotels.
