“Nice hotel but lacking in something...”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

I rated very good instead of excellent because i think the front desk employee can be a little more welcoming and pleasant. I just stayed at the Rennaisance at Chit Lom 2 weeks ago, their customer facing employees where smiling and wishing you all the time. They took the trouble to find out where you wanna go, get a cab, print out a map if necessary and explain to the cab driver where you want to go. This is the kind of services that you should expect from a 5 star property. This was indeed lacking at Vie although everything else about the hotel is of 5 star standard.

Stayed for two nights in a Deluxe Room Twin. The room is very spacious as well as the bathroom. The beds were very comfortable and the hotel has a pillow menu to suit almost anyone. The bathroom has a tub, a partitioned toilet and a partitioned shower. The air conditioning is more than capable of handling Bangkok's heat (although our thermostat didn't seem to work; it was equally cold no matter what temperature we set it at). The room has a rather old and small flatscreen TV. There were a few English channels but they were sufficient to entertain you when you're taking a break from exploring Bangkok (sadly the TV signals seem all analog and non-HD). The room is fully equipped and the hotel provides an umbrella in the closet.
Location is really great. From Suvarnabhumi Airport, expect to pay less than 300 Baht to the hotel. It takes less than 10 minutes to get to Siam Discovery or MBK. Once you're there you have the whole Siam Square to explore. If walking is not your thing, they have an in-house Tuk-tuk to take you to those places in a jiffy.
The concierge is very friendly and gladly help you out with directions. They can also call for taxis if you plan to go further places. All trips are metered except for our last one to the airport and they insisted that the taxi drivers may not take us if we don't negotiate a flat fee as it was rush hour. That was a sour note to end our stay but overall the stay was fantastic and would definitely come back to this hotel again.

Room Tip: A Deluxe Room is spacious and comfy enough for most travelers. The twin room even has a day bed to s...

We booked a deluxe suite but room upgrade was not available even for platinum card member. Room rate not expensive. Large bedroom with nice living room, office corner. Only one bathroom sink in the bathroom. Double sink would be more appropriate. Buffet breakfast was good from 6.30 to 10.30. Service minded staff at the restaurant for breakfast . Location was convenient as BTS station is in front of the hotel.
Be aware that bedroom tissue slippers are not for single use. After checking out, we were not asked if taxi was necessary. Therefore we waived a taxi along the road.
Despite these issues, this hotel is worth trying.

Stayed for 3 nights last October but forgot to review it.
Beautiful elegant hotel close to skytrain and many attractions and shopping areas.
Classy clean rooms, lovely bathrooms, well priced.
Reception staff and in particular the assistant manager were extremely helpful in overcoming a minor problem not related to the hotel. Much appreciated.
Will certainly return here.

Had a wonderful 3 nights stay at VIE. Breakfast was good, dinner was fabulous. The ambiance during our dinner buffet is just perfect for couples, there was a 50% off as well for guests. The gym is incredible as well, rarely have I ever found an in-house hotel gym to be satisfying for me haha. There's a BTS skytrain nearby which could use an escalator for our tired legs. Some taxis refused to drive us to Platinum Mall if we insist on using the meter, so we took a walk instead.

We stayed there at the end of april.
We got a great room, breakfast was ok- not more.
Everythng is very expensive(room service, spa, dinner ).
Swimming pool was a disappointment, very very small. In the picture they made it look huge.
Bottom line great hotel for business, definitely not for families with kids.
