Grand Tower Inn Rama VI Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Not advisable for senior citizen or those with bad knees as there are many stairs from lobby unless take the lift to ground floor that looks like a car park. Shower is over the bath tub and there is no safety bar. Dangerous to get in and out of bath tub. The hook behind bathroom door is very high and no way even a tall guy can hang his clothes or towels. Good points are there is an electric hot thermos pot, a few crockery and a towel racks.

Myself and my wife stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of honeymoon and a stop over in Thailand. We arrived at BKK and made our way to the taxi rank and queued for a ticket. When we presented the driver with the address and location of the hotel, he was a little clueless as to where the hotel was. After some explaining on google maps, he eventually understood where the hotel was based (not ideal after a long flight). On arrival we were greeted warmly and taken up to reception. The staff at check in were very reserved and spoke limited English, which wasn't a problem. We were shown to our room on the fifteenth floor, which had ample room for the couple of us. Our view was restricted by the advertising netting which covered our window and was for the benefit of the express way just below us. Although such a busy road, the traffic did not interrupt our sleep. That evening we ate at an excellent little steak house which was 5-10 walk from the hotel called Medium Rare Steak and Wine. The following morning we set out to discover the sites of Bangkok. Looking on google maps it suggested going to Pradiphat train station which was 5minutes away. However, when we walked there, it appears that it doesn't exist.. If travelling by train from the hotel, we would recommend walking to Ari Station, about 20-25min walk from the hotel. My wife and I had planned to go for dinner in Bangkok and asked if reception could book a taxi for us. At this request, reception told us that we don't need to book a taxi and can just flag a car outside the hotel. When we came to doing this absurd procedure, an unhelpful man at the desk sent a bell boy outside to flag a taxi down for us. Unfortunately, the bell boy was far more interested in talking to the security guard and wasn't helpful in the slightest. As the hotel is just off a main road, after 10minutes of being unsuccessful, we took matters into our own hands and took to the main road to find a form of transport - we were successful in 30 seconds. When returning to the hotel, a common trend with taxi drivers, is that they didn't have any idea where the hotel was based, despite directions from myself (someone who had been in Bangkok for 24hours). We visited the rooftop swimming pool which was the highlight of our hotel stay. On our final evening, we had wanted to eat at the same restaurant we had previously eaten, I provided a member of staff with the phone number and asked if they could call and make a reservation. To my surprise, the member of staff called the number, said hello, then immediately passed the phone over to me to make the booking, which was difficult when they spoke very broken English. Finally on departure, we checked out and a very helpful bell boy guided our luggage to a safe storage room. you have the option to keep luggage in the storage room (a locked, very small cupboard) or leave it in the open reception, which is quite unguarded. The member of reception staff was very lacklustre with the procedure and we hadn't realised the process was complete. A lovely room to stay in and an excellent base. However, it is located in an area which taxi drivers struggle to find (even when shown on a map) and we found the members of staff are very reluctant to provide assistance.

Hotel a bit far from city but was near to Chatuchak. Usually take tuk tuk to the nearest Ari BTS that cost 50baht, or take Grab to further places. No nearby convenience store such as 7-11. Usually we buy our things before heading back hotel. Security was good as we need room access card to access at our room floor itself. Room air conditioning was great. Amenities was fine.

The staff are friendly.They can communicate well to their guest.Very accommodating and courteous.The room is clean and very spacious and comfortable.They make up the room daily.supplies are available always.towels and bedding are very clean.amenities are also nice.clean swimming pool and nice fitness gym The food are also delicious and price is affordable.The hotel site is accessible to important attraction.Transportation is available anytime.Overall I have nice vacation and stay with my hotel.

Gear value hotel! RCI came through for us here in Bangkok... Oye, RCI's representative, was a great help and assisted us in many of our needs. Pool and gym were great! Room was nice. Local Ari neighborhood was Thai at its best, but a little far from MBK and downtown. Loved the open pit BBQ chicken man on the corner. Eat food on the street, it's great!

We checked in on 26 Dec 4pm and it was smooth. It is true the hotel is located middle of nowhere but luckily with the Grab Taxi around, we can still move around quite easily except that we find ourselves paying for a bit more travelling. The room is spacious and clean, but our shower is not that hot. My children's rooms were short of kettle, mineral water and so on, given our check in time at 4pm, it shd not happen. The breakfast is reasonably well prepared with sufficient variety. Overall will not choose this hotel in future.

We were a bit worried about staying here because of my wife's disability (short distance walking only, not good on stairs). The pictures of GTI all showed multiple steps at the front! On arrival our taxi (400 baht from Sathorn Holiday Inn Express, probably 2x what a taxi should cost) drove us around the base of GTI to the "Taxi Stop", where there was a ramp. Great. The ramp was very steep, but with a bit of a runup I was able to get my wife up there. (I am 60+, reasonably fit, my wife is reasonably small). Once inside lifts were great if a bit slow at rush hours (22 floors, 2 lifts). Because we had booked timeshare through DAE we dealt with the Timeshare lady, who was EXTREMELY helpful. Our room was spacious as per picture on left, and my wife could navigate her way round in wheelchair. The bathroom was a bit tired, and had a step down which my wife could negotiate. Hot water was only on 4pm - 9pm but we found it was warm enough most mornings to have a good shower. There was a microwave (for heating food, not cooking). Pillows were very hard. Restaurant in hotel was good, breakfast was expensive, dinner very reasonable. Getting places cost around 150 baht by metered taxi, which was the best way to get around. Long way from central Bangkok ... but Saphan Kwai village was about 20 minutes away even with wheelchair, and quite a good shopping centre. There was a BTS Skytrain station here but it did not have disabled access. Neither did the one at Ari. However the subway (MRT) has a stop a bit further up the road at Katuchat Park (also scene of a fantastic weekend market) and all MRT stations have elevators (but not at all exits, so you might come up on the wrong side of a road). Crossing roads with a wheelchair is hazardous, even (especially?) on pedestrian crossings. So we had a very enjoyable week, didn't get round to using the facilities on top floor. Bangkok is a challenge, especially with a wheelchair, but we survived and enjoyed.

Please trust the comments here. It’s true! I booked 4 nights (time sharing) and I can’t wait to checkout! (Today is my second night, am checking out tomorrow FOR GOOD) 1. Staff can’t speak English. 2. The room have weird smell coming from the old chair 3. Called FO and told them my laptop is having a problem connecting their WiFi. And guess what. They ask me to go downstairs. I’m a lazy guest and they are paid lazy staff 4. Ask if there’s any car rental and they ask me to go down again. Why? Cause there’s one lady at the lobby who would like to hard sell me tour packages! And she does that whenever she see me! That is SO annoying! 5. The hotel REALLY REALLY need some renovation 6. There’s not much things around the hotel. Is like a hotel out of no where 7. Travel by Uber. It’s easier 8. Don’t let the word “massage” trick you when you see the word in the lift! Is a LIE! I asked them if they could arrange a massage for me, and they told me they don’t have. And suggested me to walk outside and find. 9. Don’t bother asking them anything. Not like they can help thou

Not a bad stay,not much in the immediate area but handy for Don Muang airport.Big spacious hotel,big rooms and publicareas,some great views of Bangkok from the room and good value.It's an older style mid range hotel.

Room was comfortable but very dated. No taxi service and theres a security deposit of 2000baht which was not indicated in profile. Not suitable for elderly or guest with walking difficulties. I didnt eat there as theres no halal food but theres a halal indian restaurant called Abu Ibrahim about 15 mins walk away... You can take bus to various historical and places of interest...
