The AMARI experience

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 5, 2013

Amari is a big name in hotels. and the experience they offer is no less than their name. I stayed at Amari when I visited Bangkok with my family. It is no doubt a very expensive hotel. But the view as well as the rooms are the best. the view from our room was very refreshing. They offer different types of rooms. The deluxe rooms are the best. Its like you are staying in a suite. The spa is pretty good. The pool as well as the saloon is no less. Shopping place is nearby and every room has its own facilities that are excellent. The breakfast is served in the room as it is included in the room fee. Also the staff is very cooperative. If you do not have issues with money this is the place to stay.

Unique Quality: Facilities

Part two of my Amari Watergate Hotel tip with more pictures of the Hotel

I love the Amari Hotels and when I'm in Bangkok, I usually stay at the Amari Hotels and this time Me and my friends stayed here at the Amari Watergate Hotel. The hotel is right smack in the Center of the Petchaburi Shopping District, particularly the Pratunam area of Bangkok where most of the Shopping Malls, Markets and night markets caters to both local and international hard core shoppers as the brands here are mostly local and you can buy the assorted items by the bulk and wholesale with lots of discounts. Petchaburi area (Platinum Mall, Pantip, Pratunam Marlet, City Complex, Indra Square, Pratunam Center, Baiyoke Market, etc) is for true budget shopping wile the Ratchaprasong Area (Siam Square, Paragon, Gaysorn, Central World) Nearby is for Luxury Shopping!

The Hotel is located in Pratunam which makes it an ideal base for venturing out and shopping. The hotel has 569 rooms and suites in a 34 floor building with free wifi at the lobby and with it's own bar (henry j beans). Platinum Mall is just across the street and Pantip Plaza and Central World is a stone's throw away from it.

Unique Quality: again they have 569 rooms and suites and we stayed at a grand deluxe room (40 square meters) and it has the typical amenities like free chang bottled water everyday, free buffet breakfast, lcd tv, a huge bathroom with separate bath tub and shower. Refrigerator, mini bar, coffee maker, etc. check in is at 3:00 pm and check out is at 12:00 pm. of you have an evening flight then you can just leave your luggage at the concierge.

the facilities include:

Breeze Spa
Breeze Salon
24-hour reception, porter and concierge service
Business Centre with Email and Internet access
Video conference service
Postal services
Foreign exchange facilities
Laundry and valet services

Nice 5* hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 11, 2009

We stayed in a non-smoking Deluxe Room at the 11th Floor for 4 nights. The room is spacious, equipped with a 42-inch flat-screen TV & DVD-player. The view outside is not fantastic, maybe because we're not not a high floor. Bathroom comes with a standard tub and a separate shower area.

The hotel is located directly opposite a new shopping mall "Platinum Fashion Mall" and is also near Pratunam Market. You can get good bargain for local fashion production at the shopping areas nearby. The hotel is not located near to any skytrain stations although taxis are really cheap, not costing more than 100Bht going to almost anywhere within Bangkok. Just make sure that the meter is turned on. But beware of traffic jams. The traffic seems to be in a constant jam.

Breakfast was inclusive of our room charges. The spread is quite standard. I like the freshly baked croissants served. Just disappointed that I can't find more authentic Thai dishes being served. Pad Thai for breakfast would be nice :)

Unique Quality: There is a small pool at the 8th storey but we did not visit it once during our 5 days there. There is also a spa, but the prices are just hotel prices. There is a day spa located in a building just next to the hotel with much more affordable pricing (2hr oil massage for 750Bht). There are actually more options around, so it's great to explore the area around the hotel.

Directions: You can book the rooms directly from Asiarooms.com.

The place to stay is quite good. Hotel Staffs are coopearte. Facilities are good. The breakfast was included into the hotel room rent. The place is in the core area of the city.

I suggest to stay there if you have good budget.

Unique Quality: Good

Directions: About 45 minutes from Suvanrnabhoomi Airport by taxi. 350 - 400 Thai Baht Rent. The 'Taxi Meter' metered taxi are available.

Great Sleep

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 12, 2007

The Hotel was very nice. It had a great huge Lobby, the staff was awesome and very helpful. We even checked out at 9pm and they didn't mind, even though they were expecting us to check out in the morning. Not sure if there was a cost associated with it though.

The room was very clean and comfortable, as long as you love hard mattress like I do.

The breakfast buffet was really good, great american breakfast too.

Unique Quality: I heard the spa was very nice and the pool, so my co-workers say.

The lobby had free wireless internet for those on a budget and not a work trip. Otherwise it was USD20 for 24 hours, unlimited use.

Very close to the shopping, malls just 5-10 minute walk away. Lots of street vendors just around the corner of the hotel.

The Italian Restaurant was very good, but definitely look at the menu items before you sit down, there are not a lot of options.

If you do not mind sitting on the comfortable seats in the lobby lounge, you can order from all the restaurant menus, which is very convienent when everyone wants something different.

Directions: Pratunam Area

Our stay in the hotel is very pleasant. The rooms are clean, very big and the bathroom is clean as well. It was right beside the market where you can buy a lot of cheap fashionable clothes! It's a good place to stay.

5 Star Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 25, 2007

Amari Watergate is one fo the leading 5 star hotels in Bangkok. The location is really great..very close to pratunam wholesale market & Central World (WTC) .

They have a grandous lobby with live Thai Music being played at ngiht. Free wifi connection at the lobby to those clients who are computer geek!

We tried almost 4 of their restaurants and its really great. Food, service and ambience are very nice.

Spacious room, clean linens and beddings, big bed, nice lighting, and very inviting bathroom :-)

Very nice View of the city from our bedroom.

Very kind staff yet low quality hotel

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 17, 2007

I stayed at this hotel in January 2007, paying $199U.S./night, inclusive. The hotel is located near some upscale shopping stores, and is not far from the convenient Skytrain. Very pleasant and proper hotel staff and nice fresh flowers in the room, yet was surprised at how poor a few quality related things were. The hotel room floor was surprisingly dusty, with clumps in both the corners and behind the main door. Bathroom accessories were not replaced each day, but I suspect that is the case with many Thailand hotels given my experience. The telephone had a bad headset which crackled too much, so making a call was unbearable. Also, I bought dinner at the hotel’s restaurant and took it to my room to eat. Surprisingly I wasn’t allowed to take the restaurant’s silverware up to the room to eat the dinner, and was informed that it was due to “management’s concern over inventory”. So I was given cheap flimsy plastic utensils. One tip for anyone taking a taxi to the hotel from the airport: taxi’s overcharge as often as they can. The trip to the hotel from the airport should be only approximately 350 baht, plus 40 baht for the freeway’s toll. I was overcharged, paying 500 plus the 40. So it might be sensible to call ahead and ask the concierge for an idea of what you can expect to pay a taxi. Finally, make sure taxi’s use their meter; accept nothing else if they won’t use the meter, or you’ll get taken unfair advantage of. In conclusions, the hotel’s quality control seems poor overall, and so I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to others.

The great corporate deal

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 24, 2006

Thanks to Jimmy for his corporate priviledge that we were upgraded to the deluxe, late check out and excess to the club's level. A good class hotel of course with contemporary furnishing. My darling even love their side seats. Staff are friendly. Anyway these people provide better services compare to back at home.

International Buffet breakfast. Food are okay.

Nearby shopping, Pratunam market, The Pratunam Mall (plenty of ladies clothing) & PanIT (jimmy's fav. hahaha...basically computer stuff)

Unique Quality: View of the bustling Pratunam City. Cozy architecture for the pool.

For High Rollers and Cheap Thrills

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 30, 2006

If you plan to go budget shopping, this is the place to be! Just step outside and you see rows and rows of clothes shops in the Pratunam Market. Most of the stuff are designer rip offs and you might chance upon a really good deal.

Now if you plan to spend a huge amount of moolah, then Gaysorn and World centre is just nearby. And right in front of Watergate, they're constructing the Platinum Mall. watch out for it.. It's gonna be the hottest place to see or be seen.

Oh, and for Filipino celebrity hunters... this is a good place to hobnob with them. Actually bumped into Lucio Tan (yes, the billionaire) and saw that this is where actress Cherie Gil took refuge after the tsunami.

Unique Quality: Stayed in this hotel maybe more than 10 times for business travel... And if you are travelling on business, you'd be happy to note that WIFI internet is free in the lobby. But should you need your very own office/conference room, they rent the office for about 250 baht per half hour -- not a bad deal considering you get a phone, computer with all the peripherals and a decentplace to meet clients or associates. (and trust me, it's better to meet them in your own office than to have them in your room -- and see all your laundry!)
