“Perfect stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013

Very good staff, very good room and beautiful bathroom! Perfect amenities (swimming pool, restaurants, skybar, lobby with live music everyday). Perfect night for a first stay in Bangkok after a very long flight from Paris!

We bought promotional package through Luxury Link - 3 night stay in One-Bedroom Suite for very good price. After check in we arrived to our room and found out that it isn't suite... Called to reception and they apologized that they didn't told us correctly. Our suite was not ready and that was temporary room. And right now, suite is ready to move. We found it as total [--]... If we wouldn't call, they would remain us in standard room...

Wow just wow the sky bar says it all, the views incredible and the drinks perfect. Inside the hotel rooms need a makeover and I personally thought there was a weird smell throughout the hotel. However it was extremely good value and perfect location in Bangkok. The Japanese restaurant was good all though fairly expensive for such small amounts of food, but this was expected. Breakfast was divine but be sure to wake up early otherwise you'll be traipsing around the hotels many restaurants to eat your breakfast as they become packed quickly.

My second stay here, and just as great as the first. Club room with lounge access, including cocktails and canapes is a great deal. Some of the staff remembered me from my last visit, and this is what I really appreciate about Banyan Tree Bangkok. Compared to the other top-end hotels in this city, the staff seem friendlier, more approachable and unstuffy.
Since we had a late flight out we tried to book/pay for a late check out. This was not possible, but they did allow us to keep our room until 3pm, and use the pool and lounge until it was time to depart for the airport. We greatly appreciate their willingness to accommodate guest needs.

We also had a spa treatment here, and can really recommend it.

Room Tip: If you ask for a room with a river view, you may risk getting more a view of the high rise close by...

We grabbed a couple of nights in Bangkok at the Banyan Tree on the way home from a train-traveling, 50th birthday, adventure through Malaysia and Thailand. We'd seen he Banyan Tree Vertigo restaurant in an in-flight magazine and thought there's the place for the official birthday dinner. So, we aimed for a meal at Vertigo, the hotel stay was just a great bonus. It was only our second stay in Bangkok, the first an over-nighter a week earlier at a different hotel, in a different location.
The first thing we noticed is not only is the Banyan Tree more into the business/embassy part of Bangkok, it is set behind a fairly large building and not adjacent to South Sathon road. As we had arrived by train, and keeping with the theme, we took the subway from the train station to the nearest station and walked up. Luckily, we stumbled across a couple of fellow Aussies who pointed us in the right direction (prob embassy types - which is very close to the Banyan). Even so, we still walked passed the hotel a couple of times before finding the entrance, which was a Banyan Tree signed side alley or a walk through an empty building without Banyan Tree markings. We had a friendly security guard point us in the right direction. I know the hotel is huge, but from the road at night after 12 hours on a train, confusion is easy!
But once we were in, the magic began. The room was ultra modern, very clean and well apportioned. For some reason we got an upgrade (seemed to happen a lot on this trip) and we really appreciated the massive king size bed. The bathroom was huge and very modern and sleek, with very high quality finishes. Maybe a little bit too sleek for our liking, but still very nice.
We paid an extra fee (I think about 1500 Baht for both of us) for the buffet breakfast and used that to start our day. The lower ground breakfast dining area is lovely, with a very nice waterfall/stream/koi carp. Great food, with east/west choices, cooked and continental.
We took the complimentary tuk tuk (see the concierge) into the local BTS transit station and then spent the day in the city. Turned out not to be too far from the rail link and we walked back to the hotel. That night we dressed up for our pre-booked dinner at the Vertigo and had an amazing night. Food was very good, service outstanding, and the view AMAZING. So was the price, but you're only 50 once! All in all, a great hotel but make sure you make use of the Vertigo or Moon Bar to get the full effect.

Traveling with my son and wife, I decided to get a one bedroom suite. It was as big as a Tokyo apartment! We loved the Club lounge and staff, we thought the details in the room were great and the concierge and door staff were super helpful. The hotel has many restaurants which we tried when we could - very good thai restaurant, super staff.
Cannot really say a negative thing, and would be happy to recommend the same experience to my friends and colleagues.

We arrived and after a 40-odd minute transfer from the airport we finally arrived. Just some info on the taxi ride, the fare (including the airport BHT50 surcharge and BHT70 expressway fees) should not cost more than about BHT450. Don't let your taxi driver push you for more than that!!!
Were taken to the check in area where we waited for a few minutes. After they took out passports & proof of booking they charged to our card DOUBLE what our accommodation was going to cost as guarantee for any extras. I kicked up a huge fuss about this and eventually they relented and refunded the guarantee amount back to our card. Watch out for this as they shouldn't take more than about THB 2'000, NOT THB10'000!!!!!
Room was lovely with a great view to the pool & city.
Breakfast was very average and wasn't bowled over by it.
Pool area was nice and perfectly suitable to cool down after a day shopping in the city.
Vertigo Sky Bar (on top of building, floor 54) is a must do to see the city by night but drinks are really expensive!!! The Thai Whiskey is not great and don't recommend you try it
Hotel is in easy walking distance to a train station which is easy to navigate and explore from there.
We did the Banyan Tree river cruise and I was very disappointed. The food was below average, there wasn't enough light to even see what you were eating and it was overly priced and found that it was a waste of money
