Pathumwan Princess Hotel
Ranked #53 of 885 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 April 2013

I visit Bangkok each year when teaching at the University and am always booked into the Princess. The hotel is a haven in amongst the hot and bustling shopping centres of Bangkok with MBK, Siam Paragon and Central World close by or within 10-15 minutes walk.

Taxis are very quick to order and the door staff will have one for you in less than two minutes. They will also ensure the taxi driver uses the meter! Tuk-tuks line up outside if that's your thing but the air conditioned taxis are cheaper and more comfortable.

The hotel rooms are a good size with a fairly generous bathroom too. Service is very good (if relatively expensive) for room service or any of the several hotel restaurants. Restaurants include Korean (2 of them!), Thai, Indian and Italian - the latter with poolside open-air dining. The rooms are serviced daily, and serviced very well. The lobby area has a pleasant, busy atmosphere but expect to pay western city prices for the coffee and buns.

Breakfast is a highlight at this hotel with lots of different varieties and styles of food from both eastern and western hemespheres. Three or four chefs are on hand to cook items to order, especially at the egg bar.

The swimming pool is large with a wide surrounding area and numerous sun loungers available in under-canopy or parasol settings or completely unshaded. There is also a good fitness room and a beauty/massage therapy room which is - compared with similar services offered in the nearby MBK centre - quite expensive.

In addition to the hotel's restaurants, there are many, many other eating options either within the nearby shopping malls or in the nearby Siam Square. The BTS (Skytrain) station at National Stadium is a five minute walk away through the MBK centre. The stalls here at MBK look as though they should be cheap but in fact they are not. Clothing gets you probably the best deal (once you haggle the price down to about 50% of the intial asking price) but the vast array of electronics on offer are no cheaper than you would pay at home, plus you have the re-assurrance of a guarantee, unlike here where "No Refund" signs are everywhere.

Siam Paragon / Discovery have lots of expensive (and probably genuine) branded designer goods on offer but why come all the way to Thailand to buy a Prada bag that could be picked up in any departure lounge around the world? However, the food court and food market in Paragon is well worth patronising.

I look forward to staying here again in future years.

Great location, connected to the MBK. Also walkable to many other options for shopping and food and site seeing.
The rooms were clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Really, there was nothing I could complain about with the stay. I enjoyed that it was connected to MBK. When you're too tired to go out more (or in my case, I needed to stay indoors for awhile because the smog was making my throat hurt) but don't want to coop up in the room, a stroll through the mall, and maybe stopping for one of the Thai massage services in there is a great option.

This hotel is a must for anyone wanting to be in the "zone" for shopping. The hotel lovely - rooms sizes are good - lobby bar great for a cocktail after a bit day shopping. Breakfast was excellent and the Italian restaurant was very nice one night. We did not use the pool area but had a walk through - if you have time to swim or relax it is very nice - lap pool, jacuzzi, lovely sun bedds to laze on. They also have a hge range of sporting activities apart from a huge gym. basketball, tennis, table tennis, squash - the list goes on and on - oh and I forgot there is a running track as well.

I would not stay anywhere else in Bangkok.

Don't stay anywhere else in Bangkok. It is a beautiful hotel with impressive rooms. Recommend the executive plus suite. Paid only $110 per night Australian an amazing room. Buffet breakfast really good selection and tasty food. Great Italian restaurant and beautiful setting over the pool. I can't speak highly enough of this place. You won't be dissapointed. Plus you can walk straight into mbk and start your shopping:) very handy to drop bags off and continue on shopping:)
