“Less rate due to the poor front desk check in time keeping”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Overall the hotel is great and wonderful. However it took us around 2 hours to check in into the room, eventhough we arrived at 3 pm but did not have our rooms ready till 5 pm. This was upsetting. On the otherhand, the rooms were very nice and brilliant in design. The hotel's lobby and resturants are great and we enjoyed our time there. Location is also excellent, you are actually in the middle of all attractions and shopping malls you will need to visit, it is also close to the two major hospitals that people travel to Bangkok to have a check up in.

I totally recommend this hotel, it will be an unforgotten experience but make sure to metion the urgency of your check in in time

Room Tip: Higher floors for better view of the capital

This is a good hotel in convienient location. A few blips, but overall nice and the staff are great.
My wife's family comes from Bangkok, so we go there regularly. This was our first stay at the Renaissance, I believe it only opened in 2011ish. Its location is just off Ploenchit/Sukhumvit one of the key main roads in Bangkok. At first I was put off as it is down a small road and not directly on the main road. But I was wrong. You are close to the BTS train system so very easy to get round Bangkok. You are also close to many of the main shopping malls - all within very easy walking distance.
First impressions? Wow, this looks nice. The staff - they have got it perfect, very very helpful, attentive without being over the top. And free WiFi. We had vouchers - so it means you can negotiate prices with them - and only paid Bht3,400++ per night, inc breakfast. And breakfast was good.
They had a nice bar RBar Free - but entertainment a bit confusing. A local band playing usual 70s/80s songs - mediocre. They stop at 11pm, then a DJ with house music till midnight then DJ finishes and background music which sounds just like the DJ. Don't know why they bother with the DJ. But it is a bit like being in London - 10.30pm they started clearing all the candles and decor away. I thought they were going to shut, but they were open till12.30am when we went to bed. I just find it so annoying - its as hough they don't want you to stay. Bar snacks were fab.
This is a nice 5* hotel. Part of the Marriott Group. Good location. Good staff. Rooms are as expected. Give yourself an hour to get to the airport - go on the meter and you will pay Bht300 and Bht70 in road taxes.

Room Tip: For now, all the rooms seem OK, but they seem to be building another hotel next to it.

I've stayed in BKK many times but the first at this hotel...and we might have to switch for our next visit. The pros, the location. It is just well placed, you can walk on the covered walkway to Siam or simply catch the skytrain. The service was great, the check-in took a bit but as there was a conference checking out, I understood. The club lounge and fitness center were small but well staffed and comfortable. The italian restaurant was yummy, I took advantage of the set lunch menu which wasn't too expensive and quite good.

The cons, the hallway nice is a bit loud, I could hear the doors closing nearby me from my bed. But there is non of the exterior noise that can be often found in other hotels.

Overall, great experience!

Love this hotel. been staying here since it first opened. think it may have had a difficult time due to the economic climate in its first year, but now well established in its third year.
staff are really welcoming and helpful. flavours restaurant does a terrific buffet with a wonderfully international selection of dishes including indian, chinese, italian, seafood, japanese and of course thai featuring strongly. Executive chef Jose Ruiz has really done a great job using top quality for ingredients and training his kitchen staff well, and he works on a monday which is an uncommon occurence in many restaurants around the world these days. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The higher the better, gives you great view over this vibrant city.

Went there for a conference... The lobby is tastefully decorated, the rooms are very spacious, with a very nice bathroom with tub bound by glass. Service was efficient.
The concierge did not disappoint in arranging for our day trips to different areas. But if you just wanna go around and shop a little, it is very near the commercial district.. And you can use the elevated shaded walkway and just avoid the noise and traffic underneath. These walkways are connected to the malls. Cool!

i stayed here for 4 nights ,friendly welcome ,perfect rooms with everything you expect from a property like this ,breakfast was so good ,everything you can imagine ,i was looking forward to breakfast everyday and i am not really a morning person ,had food in the bar and in the Italian restaurant and was very high quality ,the service in the restaurant was very good until a family of demanding , loud and complaining Indian guests arrived to table next to ours and all the attention went to them which was a little disappointing but that was the only complaint i had .
I am looking forward to staying here upon my next visit to Bangkok.
also great location .

I stayed the first time in this hotel. The staff is sometimes a little bit difficult and sometimes they don't understand the English language in the right way. Missunderstandings therefore can happen....
The hotel is nice. I had a nice corner room with a lot of features and a huge bed. The bathroom is has extraordinary furnished with a nice bathtub and a lot of windows to exterieur and to the bedroom. The club lounge has a huge space and various offers at happy hour.
