Stayed at this property from 1 Feb-5 Feb during the infamous BKK Shutdown.
Firstly I've stayed in many hotels in Bangkok, being a regular visitor, like Hotel Muse, Centrepoint Chidlom, Centara Grand, Baiyoke Sky, Arnoma and Tawana and the Renaissance has to rank as the best I've stayed in BKK.
A big thanks firstly to the free upgrade to Club Room by the friendly receptionists. From the bell hop to the reception to the security, everyone has full of greetings and genuine smiles, and reminded me of the service I received in Mandarin Oriental Jakarta which to me was the best hotel I've ever stayed in terms of service till date. This hotel comes very close.
Location excellent, just a minute walk away from Chitlom BTS and perfect for tourists who want to shop at Central World, Siam Square, etc.
Room was clean, the separate bathtub was a bonus, especially being able to watch the TV and soak in the bath at the same time! Shower pressure was fantastic as well, compared to the inconsistency of the temperature at Hotel Muse.
Didn't get a chance to try breakfast, though there is a fantastic Bagel Shop (BKK Bagel Bakery) just a stone's throw away, plus the street food stalls right outside.
The Shutdown didn't bother us bit, just try to be alert at all times and follow Richard Barrow on Twitter to get all the updates of the danger zones if any.
My only 3 complaints were probably the odd mosquito at the lobby and in the room. Also, the pillows should be improved as I had a stiff neck from the soft pillows that were provided, and there was sound coming from the air con which might bother some but not me.
Beyond that, perfect. Highly recommend this hotel and I would definitely stay again!
