“nice place to stay”
Reviewed 4 August 2008

The Grand President was a good place to stay. Like all the others posted, it's close to BTS skytrain and shopping centers.
The staff was very accomodationg and nice.
For some reason, they over booked the rooms and offered to put us up in another hotel. we where waiting for a few minutes and then 2 rooms opened up. One room was the 2 bedroom suite and the other was a regular room. The staff gave me the 2 bedroom suite at the regular single room rate per nite and also discounted the standard room for my friends.
The service they provided was excellent.
The rooms were a bit worn but they were clean.
The next time i go back to bangkok, i'm staying at the Grand President.

Stayed at Tower 3 with my family for a few days and found the staff to be very helpful, polite and speaks good English with guests. If you need a taxi, the bellboy can get a meter taxi for you and explain your destination to the taxi driver in Thai. Although I had planned the places I wanted to go before my arrival, I was pleased with the river cruise arranged by the concierge for my family which was better than my initial choice.
Nana BTS is just 5 minutes walk away. Very convenient.
The lobby and cafe is across the street at Tower 1. There is a good variety of food to choose for breakfast at the cafe. I like the ambience and design of the dining area.
My Summer Breeze Executive Studio room at the end on the 4th floor has a nice view of Soi 11 street. The room was fine except for a dark brown stain on the bathroom floor. My other room just after the lift looked refurbished but the view outside is blocked by another building next to it. We kept the blinds closed.
Overall my stay there has been comfortable and pleasant. If I do come back to Bangkok again, I will stay at Grand President and try the suite rooms.

Grand President was wonderfully located - a few mintues walk to the BTS station and central to all shopping centers. The hotel staff were friendly and accomodating. They arranged for free transport to the Ananda Spa at thier sister hotel President Solitaire just around the corner. The room was very clean and well equiped. We were happy to find a bathtub instead of only a shower stall as in most hotels in Europe. There is also a nice pool and work out facility. All in all it was a great stay. We will be returning to Sukhumvit next spring for 10 days and will be again staying with the President hotels.

Perfect location close to many Bangkok attractions and BTS system.
But this fact is only an addition to the friendliness and smiling faces of the staff always ready to help.
Any issue with the reservation? Talk to Mr.Leo -- he will quickly take care of this to the full satisfaction of the traveler.
I was there many times and I was never disappointed.
Strongly recommended,...

Esperaba algo mejor de este hotel, la recepcionista la mas guapa y joven, se reía de nuestro ingles medio con otra recepcionista, cuando con nuestro ingles medio hemos viajado por gran parte de Asia sin demasiado problemas, todos nos esforzamos por entendernos menos en este hotel, cuando el botones se hizo cargo de nuestras maletas, en el ascensor y despues de venir de las calles con propuestas de vendedores por todos los sitios, el que conoce Bangkok lo entiende, y esperando algo de tranquilidad y descanso en el hotel, el botones se dedica a vendernos trajes hechos por un sastre amigos, y hasta dentro de la habitación seguia con las ofertas, algo impensable en un hotel, por lo menos de la categoria que presumen, despues de cinco días bastante neutros en el hotel, pedimos un taxi para ir al aeropuerto y nos llaman a uno que no quiere poner el taximetro y nos quiere estafar, creo que no cuidan esos detalles que hacen clientela.

I have stayed here three times when in Bangkok and I must say I really do like it. The rooms are a bit worn out, but the place is not expensive, and the amenities of the 'apartment' are good enough. The breakfast is very good, staff are pleasant and friendly. The best thing is the location. Soi 11 is just fantastic! It feels like my local neighbourhood! I would always choose to stay here when in Bangkok and cannot really see how anyone would be disappointed with it, being essentially a 4* hotel.

Was in Bangkok for a couple of days, decided on Grand President based on the location and reviews.

Great Location - the hotel is conveniently located and is just a quick 5 minutes walk to the BTS Station. Also located nearby are a number of clubs which cater for the younger crowd. Front office staff was very friendly and efficient. Check in was quick and without any hassle.

The hotel is value for money, paid Baht 2,290 for a studio room. Nice and clean, however furniture is a bit dated. Still its good value for money, as the location more than makes up for this. I rememeber paying USD80 for a room at Bel-Air Princess hotel on one of my precious trips which had much more dated looking rooms. Breakfast was good, again staff were friendly and checkout was quick without any hassle.

  • Liked — Location, Value for money
  • Disliked — Rooms are a bit dated, could use an upgrade.
