Recent guest reviews
My boyfriend and I stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip to Ko Samui. The rooms were very spacious with a lovely big bed. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.
I am travelling around Thailand with my husband and 4 children (19, 17, 12 and 10). In Bangkok for 2 nights, we wanted somewhere "in the middle" close to the old parts of Bangkok and the river, but not so far away from other areas and Royal Princess Larn Luang fits the bill. We had booked a family room and were told on booking that 2 children U12 could share the room (with extra beds) at no cost. Arriving at the hotel we were initially told that we'd have to pay extra for extra beds, but when I explained, this cost was waived. We did have to pay for breakfast for the children (adults in the room rate). The room was a good size - just about OK for the six of us! We had a nice balcony overlooking the pool. Everything was clean but perhaps slightly tired. The pool is a good size and very deep! Again, a little tired with a few broken or sharp tiles that could do with replacing. Drinks from the bar are completely overpriced (over £2 for a Diet Coke in a can that elsewhere you can pick up for 50p-80p). Breakfast was nice - although the cooked food was a little cold. Location is great - 200 baht in a taxi to Khoa San Road; grand palace or for a river cruise; 300 baht to the shopping mall and Patpong. Hotel arranged airport transfer for 1800 baht each way (in a van) which was overpriced I think but van was comfortable and a good journey.
I chose this place as my colleagues were staying here and this is within a walking distance to my work. The breakfast does have many choices. The internet speed was often slow during busy hours, but it was fast enough for video streaming otherwise. The shower's water pressure was good. When I arrived they told me I have to get a standard room though I had a reservation for a higher class room. Will I go back? For vacation, definitely not. Somehow it was difficult to get a taxi, and the location is not good.
The location is not great !! Too far from sky train and too far from eateries or anywhere decent to eat even street food. Hotel food was not good. Hungry when I arrived and hungry when I left. Rooms although large and clean, were tired and in need of upgrade. The pool and spa were the best parts of this hotel. Would not stay here again, for the money there are better standards for the same price closer to transportation links.
Stayed here a few nights for a meeting at a nearby conference center. First impressions were good, the lobby and lounge are really nice. But the rooms left a lot to be desired. Not horrible, but definitely in desperate need of upgrading. The most frustrating aspect of this hotel was waiting 40+ minutes for a cab to show up. This was a consistent problem! I also went from Sukumvit to this hotel, took over one hour in a taxi for a 5.5 km ride. This location just sucks and is not in walking distance of any decent restaurants and not close to the sky train. I would not stay here again. You can get a hotel within walking distance of a sky train station for the same cost, or less, and of the same or superior quality.
I stayed at this hotel for a meeting in a nearby UN complex and stayed a few days. The hotel is very nice and the staff is very helpful. The hotel building is not new, but the lobby, dining areas (Princess Cafe) and the rooms have been upgraded (with the exception of the bathroom). The rooms are large compared to more recent hotels. The room comes with a minifridge and a tea kettle. Wifi is excellent in the room. Some of the rooms (those facing the pool side of the hotel) have a nice balcony. The breakfast is amazing. There are lots of options, including fruit, traditional thai breakfast food, and eggs, pancakes, bacon and a nice sample of pastries. This breakfast buffet was included in my rate. The pool is very nice and large enough to do some laps. There is also a very small gym. The hotel is located in a very quiet area and it is within walking distance of some of the historical buildings in Bangkok (Grand Palace, Golden Mount, Reclining budha, Siam Museum). However, it is important to remember that Bangkok is HOT. The hotel cashier exchanges foreign currency. However, the exchange rate is not the best.
Hotel is OK. But definitely need a bit TLC, especially in the bathroom we were staying in. Visible signs of wear and tear. Beds comfortable 👍🏻 Staff was ok, although they were not very informed. So there are 4 restaurants. We did not use them. The best part of this hotel was swimming pool and roof chilling area. Lots of plants and bushes. Perfect place to watch sunset in Bangkok.
I was booked via expedia. Up on arrival, it was nothing special. Staffs just give a key and to the room. Quiet disappointed due to Dusit Group Hotels. We are expecting more from the staffs. Front staffs were dead, silent...no greeting, no good bye, The coffee at lounge is very expensive. It was charged 170 baht for coffee latte, do you mind to check with another hotel which is charge less than yours. That's why hotel is empty. I had dinner via room service with two choices. It was ok. Trying to reach room service nobody pick up the phone. Must call to front and transfer via them. The room is view of the roof of neighbor!!! Housekeeping staffs were noisy in the morning, quiet rude how they talking each other. They put the trolley in the walk way, I am not sure if I want to back again due to many times for meeting at United Nation. cheers
We stopped here on our last night in Bangkok. We had an early flight so arrived at the hotel at around 8am. I know check in isn't until 2pm but was willing to pay for an early check in because my boyfriend really wasn't very well. We were told that this wasn't an option, so we headed into the restaurant to get some breakfast. While there is a lot of choice, everything on there was absolutely stone cold - even when they bought trays of freshly cooked food over they were still cold. I left it all as it wasn't very nice, and they immediately came over with the bill charging us for 2 breakfasts (which are £10 each) , my boyfriend had nothing to eat what so ever but when we told them this they were seriously rude - but eventually took it off. They then came over to our table to tell us that a room had become available so we could check in now. The room for the night cost us £40, but to check in early it cost us an extra £25! absolute rip off - but we paid because my boyfriend was so ill. Later on we went out to try and find some food, but there is literally nothing around this place what so ever - Khao san road is not walking distance, and you will find not one restaurant or bar anywhere near here. We ended up going to the Chinese restaurant at the hotel. The staff were SO rude. The food was not nice at all and the waitress literally stood right next to our table watching us our entire meal - obviously to get a tip but it was really annoying and just made us really uncomfortable. I cannot fault the rooms at this place - they are really spacious and nice rooms, however I think you really need to work on your customer service skills and just how you treat people here because it totally ruined it for me. We had been made to feel 10x more special in the £10 an night hostels we stopped in.
Stayed here for a night. Overall rooms and facilities are up to 4-star standard. Surprisingly we found out the conversation between night shift guy name, khun Kittisak (Lang), was sort of unprofessional. At first there were no staff at the desk until the porter called inside. I then asked the reception to put my dusit gold number on the reservation, he just ignored and told us that the hotel is no longer a part of Dusit Thani. We were surprised, so tried to reconfirm with him as we just booked the room through Dusit.com. He strongly insisted with his answer. While talking and the conversation was not yet finished, he ignored and picked up another phone call. For us, it was a bit rude. Worser than that, on the way back from outside 12AM roughly, we found out that he was napping behind reception counter. Understood that he might be too sleepy but it should be at back of the house, not behind the counter. So we asked for morning call with another staff who was sitting next to him. This comment is for hotel further improvements, staff service quality is something the hotel should prioritize in doing business.
