“Nice hotel but feels worse everytime I stay here - not for tourists”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

It's a nice enough hotel but it does NOT cater for anybody except Thai nationals coming or training seminars.The rooms are nice enough but there are NO English TV channels, not even BBC or CNN, save for one English movie channel. The rest are Thai free to air with poor quality pictures or eg National Geographic overdubbed with Thai, and ditto Discovery and Animal Planet.

My room was a suite, really nice but would rather have a smaller room in a better hotel

Really slow check in on a Sat night, only 2 people on the reception trying to deal with crowds of people arriving on buses. Seemed really disorganized.

Plus RIP OFF internet - c'mon even the tiny 40/night hotels have free wii but the Richmond's price is 300/3hours (about $10) or 600/24 hours ($20) - c'mon that is ONE BIG RIP OFF and hence I have given only 1 star.

I think they rely on the fact that this hotel is Nonthaburi, outside of Bangkok and hence they feel no compeetition from eg Dusit Thani or Dusit Princes or Pathumwan Princess which all leave this hotel in the dust

We have stayed here a couple of times, mainly because it is where we wanted to be. But last time we forgot one thing; it is, as it says, a convention hotel - and it was full due to.... a covention. They sent use to the Legacy not far away, perhaps the worst hotel within a 100km. Richmond is good for the money, it has everything you want. Having said that the staff are friendly but not well-trained. But no matter it does what it should; give you a reasonable room for a reasonable price. It's not a holiday hotel as the name suggests, but for a couple of nights or a business trip to Bangkok it's fine. Remember to book or you might end up sleeping some place with the flyover traffic running next to the bed like we did.

I put my family in this hotel last year when they were visiting me. Initially I chose this hotel for it's convenient location between my own home and the city's major attractions.
And it turned out even better than expected. Very friendly staff. Upon check in, the reserved room type was not yet cleaned, so they didn't hesitate at all to upgrade for free. The rooms are very clean and modern as well as bathrooms.
Breakfast is very comprehensive, both Western and Thai food available. Service and presentation at the restaurant were of highest standard and can easily compete with those of the large international hotels downtown.
Of course attractions are less abundant than if you would be at Sukhumvit or Silom, downtown Bangkok. However, many nice local restaurants, as well as Central Rattanatibet shopping Mall within walking distance of the hotel. Also nice to visit 'Bangkok on the water' from here. Much cheaper and much nicer canals than the ones they bring you too from the tourist piers downtown. No bars and disco's around here, but that can actually be an advantage for some travelers.
One small remark would maybe be that this hotel is a major convention hotel for local Thai companies and government offices. So during weekdays it can get quite busy at the lobby and parking area. But then again, in the tourist hotels, it is also busy with tourists. At least here you are among Thais and you get more the feeling of being in Thailand.
Price-wise it is very acceptable. Even booking direct with them is still quite cheap (2000THB for a deluxe room with BF and internet), especially if you negotiate when booking more than 1 room.
The spa is very nice, however as in most hotels, much too expensive for what you get. Better to use a spa outside somewhere.
If you want to see a different area of Bangkok, but still easily connected to downtown, this is the right choice to make. (One remark though, if you are looking for the entertainment of downtown Bangkok, this hotel is not your right choice).

Room Tip: The deluxe would be the best option as it is more spacious and more nicely decorated. Well worth the...

NOT for tourists, and mainly for Thai who are attending seminars, workshops or conventions, hence name - Richmond the Stylish Convention Hotel.
Negatives are a few, eg no free Wifi or internet (c’mon these days every hotel above 2* is offering free wifi), not really a 4*, more 3.5, nothing to do in this part of Nonthaburi, it’s not for tourists or sightseeing and a long way out from Bangkok, so don’t expect taxi drivers to want to bring you out here.
Your profile is likely to be Thai 25-45, attending training in your lime green shirt (solid yellows and red shirts are not politically correct for uniforms anymore), holding a training folder on customer relations, or similar.
Only a few English TV channels on a grainy flatscreen (CNN, BBC, China, Aljez) all others including Animal Planet and Discovery are in Thai. Niggles include no iron and ironing board (it’s a business hotel, how can you look smart after 16hours long haul?), remote for the TV that goes down the channels when you push the up selector, noisy noisy A/C, not much else.
Pluses were few but included good free breakfast with plenty of choices and enough menu changes to keep you interested for a few days, nice enough rooms, plenty of hot water, not its gone cold, ouch its hot, oh so cold. Better to have a shower at 5am to get constant hot water!!! I got upgraded to a suite because the Deluxe room I was in had a busted TV. Nothing fancy in the suite except the shower was separate and not over the bathtub, like other rooms.

The Richmond Hotel Nonthaburi is a ultra modern and truely high calibre stylish hotel in every aspect, situated in a great convenient location. It is within convenient distance to tourist attractions and stone throw away from several big shopping malls.

Transport to Central Bangkok and the other main centres are easy as it is situated near the big main roads and express ways.

The hotel rooms are very new and very classily decorated with first class amenities. furnitures and spotlessly clean.

The staff are very professionally and gave very good help and service.

The restaurants offered great tastyThai and International cuisines and have wonderful buffets for the main meal times, not to be missed!

We have a most memorable and great stay at the Richmond!

Dear all friend,
I used to live in this hotel for two times. I am the government officer in Thailand and I have to live hear for two times because the conference organizer arrange the accomodation for me. The most terrible thing that I can tolerate is the service behavior. The reception let me wait for the room check in for one hour unattendedly. I ask them why it is so late. They just said "there are a lot of resident and the check out is delayed". No apologize from them. I said "Is taht very good reason for waiting one hour without any explanation". At once, I got a key>>>>This is very good way to have rapid check in, isn't it. If it happen very frequently, it is very bad. If it just occasional, it is very bad service mind. That all I would like to tell you. Any others hostel is cheaper and have a better service.

I picked this based on Agoda.com reviews and was happy with the choice. The room was very big with paid internet. At this level hotel you usually get charged even thought I think it should be a standard item these days. The hotel was big and classy. It is a bit old but they keep it up. The breakfast was included and a good quality meal.

I liked the shower and bath.

I would stay again.
