We arrived there at 9am and asked to check into our rooms since it says 24/7 check-in on (where we booked the hotel) but the hotel said we weren't allowed to check in until 2pm. The staff was very unfriendly with our group of 7 girls and demanded to hold our passports and immigration forms in order for us to check in, something I've never heard of before. After a lot of back and forth with the manager, they finally agreed to give us a room at around 10:30am and they made photocopies of our passport like other normal hotels. It was a very weird experience and we decided to stay somewhere else the next day because of how unprofessional they were.

I have stayed at this hotel quite a number of times over the past few years mostly for work. I return, because I like the location, the rooms are comfortable and nice, and sometimes they have good deals. Just be aware that there is only one floor that caters to non-smokers and a note added to an on-line reservation may not be honored. An email or a call could be more effective to have no surprises when you check in.

We had a seminar here and found the room to be very clean and comfortable. The servers were also very helpful too. The buffet lunch was excellent as it included buffet salad and dessert. For hot food, there was a nice selection of more than 20 dishes, which you have to order and the kitchen will prepare immediately.

Great little hotel, walking distance to The Emporium Shopping Centre and Cinema. Friendly staff, clean room's, nice breakfast. Stayed 2 nights and will use next time. Good central location. 40 minutes from Suvwarnabhumi Airport

it is about 30 to 45 mins away from the airport but it isn't in the city center which is great as I don't want too much craziness in BKK. It is 4 min walk to BTS and there are malls around me. The staff is very friendly and they speak great English. The breakfast is quite pricey so I didn't take the package and I won't recommend anybody to do it as you can eat on the street or outside for way cheaper price. The room is very big and comfortable. Again, this is not a 5 star hotel so there are some flaws but they didn't bother me. Everything worked for me while I was staying there.

This is my second stay at the St James Hotel in Bangkok, which is located at Soi Sukhimvit 26 r Soi Ari and I must say that this place is still a hotel that is good value for money.... for the price I paid it was quite good! Firstly the hotel's strategic location, if you don't know by now, is located near the Phrom Pong BTS and Emporium shopping complex & EM Quartier (opposite Emporium). Within a 2 to 4 minute walking distance from the hotel lobby, there is the very popular and very tasty Ruang Ruang Noodles (local Thai noodles), also the Phunee Massage, as well as the Phussappa Massage (this 2 are the proper massage I have been too and it was really good) and a 7-11 (24 hour grocery store). Second, although the hotel looks a little old and run down compared to its neighbor, the DoubleTree Hilton, the rooms inside are rather nice for the price you pay. I like the wooden flooring, the bed, which was king size bed was comfortable and the size of the room was about (30sqm) was more than adequate. The service here was also quite good. I ordered the room service ( you should try their basil fried minced pork with rice and egg) and they were prompt and the food was good. All in all this is a place I definitely recommend my friends too and definitely a place I want to come back too! * the only thing I would say that they need to improve is their wifi. They have a few per floor, as in routers which is located outside your room and because of the full occupancy sometimes you don't get the wifi or sometimes the wifi is really slow...

I stayed here last month, March, to play golf in the area for a week. My friend was staying next door at the Hilton doubletree but was twice as expensive, but having stayed at St James, you get what you pay for. Don't get me wrong, this hotel is comfortable, clean, etc but hasn't got the knobs and whistles that make it the quality of a higher grade hotel. Makes sense really. I was greeted at the front desk and was made welcome and taken to my room. Whereas your bag and golf clubs would be whisked away and seen later in your room, the bell boy stands by the lift and follows you up. Nevertheless easy heckling in. The room is quite plain but clean and comfortable. Complimentary water and small fridge. The laundry service was very good and cheap, about £2 a shirt. Breakfast in the morning is a buffet, not massive but adequate. More made for the Asian tourist/ business people. Didn't like the coffee and tea stewing in the old 'kenco' pots. You know the ones that sit on top of a heated plate! Most mornings had a hunt for egg man who I think doubles up as sous chef so in and out of kitchen. The front desk help you whenever you need them. The location is great, very near the hub bub of sukhumvit. All in all a good hotel for the price but if you want something a touch more special then maybe go next door. Enjoy.

It's a 5 mins walk to the BTS Phrom Phong which can take you to central Bangkok and also Airport.Very friendly and helpful staff,the room is very clean and a very good king size bed.There are many nice restaurants around.

Class act off Sukhumvit, only downside long walk to BTS. But no issue as lots of taxis and motorbikes to get you there. Was upgraded to wonderful suite, clean, quiet luxury. Good internet, helpful staff, lots of shops and restaurants nearby, good breakfast buffet too. Will be back.

I booked this hotel because I really needed a pool in this temperature. Unfortunately, the hotel staff will not inform you that their pool is under renovation, until you are done checking in. Other guests were having a hard time too, really needing to go for a swim in the heat. No compensation is given the guests for this rather big inconvenience. Not impressed.
