Amari Watergate Bangkok
Ranked #69 of 891 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 November 2011

Paid $80 USD on Priceline for this hotel.
Service is superb. Rooms are clean and well decorated.
Location is right across from Platinum Fashion Mall, not really my kind of shopping mall, but location is decent.
Fair a bit of walking if you want to get to Siam Paragon or Central World though. No complimentary shuttle service, which most other hotels provide.
Separate shower from bathtub and toilet.. The shower smelled a bit moldy, but didn't see any mold.
We checked in at 1330 hrs, room was not ready at that time; front desk offered us reception drinks while we waited.
Can't go wrong at this price.. $80.
Is it a top end 5 stars property?
Yes for lobby, amenities and service. Not so much for their bathrooms.

My wife and I have been staying at the Amari Watergate hotel when visiting Bangkok since 2002. Every time we stay it gets better and better. We have stayed in countless five star hotels in the last 18 months and cannot truly express how much better the service is at the Amari Watergate than anywhere else. The staff are excellent, the rooms are of great quality and the overall value is unbeatable for a five star hotel. Just look at the price difference between a standard room in the Amari Watergate and the Shangri La in BKK. The rooms are in the same league but the staff at the Shangri La could learn a lot from the staff at the Amari when it comes to service. The location of the hotel is perfect (especially for shopping), the facilities are superb and the chinese restaurant does fantastic dim sum.

We have stayed at Shangri La, JW Marriott, Le Meridien, Crowne Plaza, Intercontinental - most of them were good (bar Intercontinental) but they do not have the same reliable level of consistent service that we have experienced in the last nine years from the Amari Watergate.

We will never stay at another hotel in BKK, the Amari is like our home away from home.

I have stayed at the Amari several times and am happy to call it my Home Hotel. I wouldn't stay any where else. The suites are very large and comfortable with modern decor. Staff couldn't be more helpful or accomodating to any needs. Food is excellent. There is a bar/food known as HJ's on the lower ground floor with a live band that makes for a great evening without having to travel far. The local market has great shopping and many shopping complexes are within walking distance. I feel extremely safe at all times wandering around.Higly recommend the Amari Watergate to stay at.

Room Tip: Corner rooms offer great sights. Worthwhile booking an executive suite which has 2 bathrooms and a l...

I stayed at the Amari Watergate recently for a 3 night business trip. The hotel impressed me far more than I ever expected for the price I paid through Royal Orchid Holidays in SA. What amazing value for money. It really is so well located in the Pratunam area, directly across from the Platinum Fashional Mall - a shoppers paradise - and surrounded by traditional local market stalls. The hotel facilities are great, from the spa to the lovely pool area and their award winning Thai Restaurant. The beds were heavenly - such soft mattresses and pillows I could have stayed dreaming on Cloud 9 forever ! But what really makes Amari Watergate a hotel I will definately come back to, and highly recommend, is the dedication and professionalism of the staff - they are a caring, motivated, willing team and they really do remind you why Thailand is called the Land of Smiles. Hotel management is very hands on and they lead and inpsire their team to ensure that you will have the most enjoyable stay you could wish for in Bangkok.

Room Tip: Treat yourself by Upgrading to the Executive Suites - the views from high up are amazing and the val...

I stayed a couple of nights at the Amari Watergate in July this year and really enjoyed my stay there. Great hotel in the hart of Bankok. Staff is really friendly and helpful. Food was excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms on Executive Floor - Here you can enjoy your breakfast with a breathtaking view over Bangkok.
