The Majestic Grande is a very comfortable full service hotel equivalent to any good 4 star European city hotel.
Hotel is situated very well in the city, close to transport links, bars, shops, restaurants, etc. It is not on top of the main tourist attractions in the city but the position lends itself to experiencing the multiple modes of public transport available… Start out by Sky Train, catch the river ferry, transfer to Tuk-Tuk, return by Canal, and Taxi, etc! If you can take the heat you can even walk to the main shopping area.
Hotel is approximately a 30min – 1Hr Taxi ride from the main airport which depending on your taxi driver will set you back between 300 – 500THB. Try to agree your fare in advance with non-metered taxis but our experience was that you got a better deal with the metered ones. Taxis from the hotel are easily arranged by the very helpful concierge service and they will agree the price for you if you so wish. They are also on hand to advise you on where to go and where not to go in the city, this was especially handy for us as we were in Bangkok during the Red Shirt political demonstrations. There is also a tour operator located in the lobby whom can arrange many day trips throughout the city and surrounding area – well priced and by all accounts we heard no complaints from persons that used them, in fact quite to the contrary.
We sampled from each of the restaurants in the hotel. The main 7th floor restaurant serves buffet each night or Al a Carte, this is also the destination for breakfast in the morning. In all cases the standard is excellent and price reasonable – The Thai dishes of course are excellent. Breakfast is plentiful, full choice of Thai, Continental, “American”, dishes, you want for nothing and going away still hungry is highly unlikely. The Italian Restaurant on the ground floor is also of a high standard, my wife claims it was the best pizza in Thailand! Prices little higher in this one and I always question the value of eating Italian when in Thailand… We took advantage of the room service during our stay too, great food and no tray charge.
Bar in the hotel is great and the staff extremely good. There is a great choice of drinks and the happy hour 2 for 1 is a must. Great Cocktails Menu which can keep you entertained for a good few evenings if you so desired.
Pool, Gym, Spa, Business Centre all located on the 7th Floor. Spa area is excellent with separate sex Jacuzzi, Sauna, and Steam Rooms. Towels provided at reception point on that floor which can be used throughout the area. Pool is good size, we were at the Hotel in April and pool got most of its sun before midday, after that it was shaded by the main building – so it you are a sun worshipper get there early! Hotel was at capacity during our visit and beds / seats by the pool hard to come by whilst the sun around but plenty of space early / late afternoon. Gym is very well equipped and fully air conditioned, I’m a regular gym user and there was more than enough to keep me occupied for our short stay. Business centre has 4 PC’s with Internet Access although this was a bit pricey – If you have a wireless laptop it’s better to use this as they had far better deals on for use by this means.
Rooms are what you would expect of a 4 star hotel, very comfortable and very clean. Good choice of Sat TV Channels, DVD System, Mini Bar, Safe, etc, etc. Staff were very helpful throughout and everything during our stay went very smoothly. Should I ever return to Bangkok again I’d certainly check out the price at this hotel as it was in summary very good throughout.
