A middle of the road hotel with a strong eastern feeling. Location full of atmosphere in side street but near to street markets and sky train. Views from upper rooms superb over the city. Stayed there over 12 times now and come backagain and again as an old friend

I stayed here in Dec'09 with my family. This hotel is in the middle of where the action is in bangkok. The tube station is right across the street from this hotel. The food here was good and we enjoyed our breakfast here. The room was large with a reasonable view of outside world. There was absolute pindrop silence in the corridors even though it always chaotic outside in bangkok. It sometimes did seem a bit haunted not due to any noises but due to complete lack of them.

The hotel reception was well decorated intime for christmas. There was no security locker in the room but they had some near the reception where we kept our passports and some money safe. The room had a tv with sports channel where I watched an el-classico football match. There was a kettle and a refrigerator as well.

The staff was courteous and always ready for help. I would love to go back and stay here for a few days.

Nice hotel with swimming pool. Clean rooms. Well maintained. Helpful staff.And beautiful view of city. Nearest to metro station and so to shopping areas. Beakfast was also good. The only problem with the hotel is no window opens.

In terms of location, this place is just unbeatable! Just walk out of the hotel, and you have plenty of options for shopping and trying out the famous bangkok street food. Whats more, the sky train station is a 5 min walk from here.
It indeed is an old property. Rooms are very spacious and decent. The buffet breakfast was good, not great though!

I stayed at the Royal Benja recently in room 2408 for a few nights as a friend was staying there also.

Pros:
- huge room
- very clean
- 5min walk from Nana BTS station
- comfy bed
- great shower
- close to restaurants, a Foodland supermarket, 7-Eleven etc.

Cons:
- booked a double bed, got a twin room
- internet mostly slow and unreliable @ 100 baht/hr or 300 baht/day
- breakfast nothing special
- 'mini-bar' was an empty fridge
- no real amenities in the room, got a pad/pencil, a few bathroom things and that was it... no robes, no iron, no info in the room about local area etc
- kettle provided but no cups (two glasses...), coffee sachets or teabags... (even the dodgiest guesthouses/hostels i've stayed at give you a lousy teabag or two!!!)
- room service very poor options for vegetarians/vegans, nothing special in general
- near a red-light area so not especially pleasant at night
- extremely unfriendly and rude woman behind the desk when i checked out. Just barked '25 baht' at me for a room to room phone call. No 'thanks for coming, hope you enjoyed your stay' etc. Didn't even make eye contact and behaved as though I was annoying her or interrupting her day. Very poor customer service, door guys were ok.

I suspect perhaps the hotel is cutting corners because of fewer tourists currently visiting the city etc. This has the potential to be a fantastic hotel, but it is certainly not 'luxury'. I won't stay here again unless desperate.

The hotel is well located and has huge rooms . The staff is friendly and cooperative . The station is 5min walking from the hotel. the breakfast is good and many varieties included for vegetarian people. Entrance towards hotel narrow and bit crowded but over all it's a nice hotel .above all value for money
