Thai Elegance

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 26, 2010

This is one of Asias best hotels. I stay here regularly, it is in the business district, so those wanting the bustle of Sukhumvut or the views of the river , this may not be for you but....
Close to good restaurants, Pat Pong markets, Suan Lum Night bazar, Lumphini Park ( great for a morning jog or walk) and about 10 minute walk to the sky train or subway. Motor bike taxis are out the front all day will get you there in a few minutes for 40 baht.
Every room is suite which is nice, the decor is modern Thai, everything is understated and soft lighting, silk and elegant.
There are , to my knowledge only suites in the hotel, most rooms are the three room suite- small bedroom, small TV/ lounge/study, and a bathroom. This is very nice and what I always stay in. Plenty of room for two to be comfortable. There is also a small number of larger rooms with a huge lounge room on the street side with a wide view of the city with a bed room and bath room behind them.
Unlike a previous poster, I reccomend the river side of the hotel as it is quieter, its amazing that you can still hear the motorbikes up Sukhumvit road on the 40th floor, so unless you are in one of the extra large rooms, where the bedroom is off the front window, better to be on the river side not the street side.
The famous Vertigo bar on the roof, wonderful attentive service, very good breakfast, many small touches like a small gift every night on your bed , your native language and home country news digest every morning at your door along with the Bangkok Post.
Excellent food for room service and to dine in one of the restaurants- Chinese, Thai, Buffet, and the roof top ($$$).
As a previous writer said the pool is very nice on the 20th floor at the spa
Downsides maybe is cost, location is not touristy, smoking floors

Unique Quality: This Hotel really works for meetings and functions as it has a number of restaurants, a spectacular open air bar on the top floor, the building has a hole through it about 4 fllors high so if it is raining you can function outside but under cover- unique!
Also the hotel has its own boat, a converted rice hauler now a buffet dinner , I took 27 on it up the river one night and they loved it.
Also good meeting rooms of various sizes, even a video link facility was set up there for one meeting we had

Directions: Business District on Sathorn Road

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 12, 2008

Disappointing. Stayed here in July 2006 en route to New York. Stayed for 2 nights and thankfully was here on the corporate rate - would have been v.annoyed if we were paying full $.

Cons:
- Be sure to request a non-smoking floor. This is Asia, so hotels aren't fully non-smoking. Felt like I was waking up in an ashtray every morning - grosse.
- The rooms are in desperate need of a refurb - think of the hotel suite in Pretty Woman and you've pretty much hit the nail on the head. Very late 80's early 90's decor.
- Location - is geared toward the business traveller, it's not on the river (or anywhere near it) so if you're after the good views, dont' bother

Pros:
- FABULOUS buffet breakfast
- We had a meal at their marquee restaurant, Vertigo - very nice, although it started to rain at the end of the meal.

Unique Quality: Great food.

Our favourite hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 20, 2007

The whole Thailand experience for us started and ended in this wonderful hotel...as we had 4 nights to start the honeymoon and then we spent our last night there after Koh Samui before our flight back to the UK.

We couldn't have started or ended on a better note - I can't fault the Banyan in any way except for one small thing - they refused entry to the roof top bar to my husband bescuse he had open toe sandals on. (He had dressed up especially in long sleeved shirt and linen trousers and smart sandals... but no luck, and yet they let in someone in trainers in front of us!)

The staff were wonderful...all the door men helping us find where we wanted to go, getting taxis and also even remembering our names when we returned 2 weeks later. they re tight on security and each taxi was stopped and a check done on it.

My husband has stayed in many luxury hotels around the world but said this beat them all hands down. I'd go back in a flash!

Unique Quality: . The pool at the Banyan was a dream - to be by a pool but about 20 floors up in the middle of the city was bizarre, but the staff were so attentive, bringing cold water and a spritz mentol spray to cool you down. To get to the pool you walked past the spa, which looked amazing, but time and budget meant we were unable to indulge.

As honeymooners we got upgraded to a deluxe suite and had a complimentary afternoon tea - sandwiches, tea and cake, in the lobby - a lovely experience which was enhanced by the afternoon musical entertainment.

The music was evident at every meal, pianist entertained in the morning whislt you ate your fill at the most amazing breakfast buffet I've ever seen... everything you could possibly imagine and more was there. We didn't eat any other meals at the hotel although I am sure we'd not have been disappointed. The lower ground floor restaurant was sided by a huge window which was the garden with pond and house turtle, a wonderful morning view.

The rooms were oustanding... if possible try and get one facing out the front of the hotel as this view is marginally better than the back - although neither disappoint. Everything is provided, 2 different types of robes, slippers, hair dryer, iron & board. Various bath gels and crystals.. and a different insence each day.

Every day you got a daily sheet in your native language with a weather reoprt and daily events around the hotel... and a newspaper outside your door.

Pricey, but well worth it

While not as exquisite as other Banyan Trees in resort locales, the Banyan Tree Bangkok is nonetheless a great choice.

Staying at the Banyan Tree Club level not only gives you a decent size suite with great amenities, but will also score you access to the Club Lounge with free drinks, as well as breakfast at the more exclusive Saffron on the 52nd floor with great views - think of it as the indoor version of the famed Vertigo restaurant on the rooftop.

The only downside is that the location is quite a walk away from MRT's Lumphini station and is not reachable from BTS - if you factor in the Bangkok sun - so the only feasible mode of transport is car / taxi, and if you know anything about traffic jams in Bangkok, car / taxi often times is not a desirable mode of transport.

Unique Quality: The Banyan Tree Spa needs no further introduction.

Oasis in the City

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 18, 2004

The Banyan Tree Group is known for its gorgeous spa hotels dotted around Asia-Pacific. Normally, you find them at the best beach resorts. The Banyan Tree Bangkok is an exception, being located within a bustling city, but once you enter, it's like stepping into an oasis of calm.

This is an all-suite hotel. The standard suites come with a small sitting area and a work desk, with a separate bedroom. The bathroom itself is fairly spacious, and it comes with separate shower and jacuzzi bathtub. You will also find essential oils to set up your own relaxing bath.

When you step into the room, it's beautifully fragranced with burning incense. Orchids are used to add bright touches to the room.

As the Banyan Tree Group promotes environmental consciousness, you will also find daily little souvenirs like toy turtles to remind you to protect the environment.

Unique Quality: When staying at any Banyan Tree Group hotel, you must try the body treatments available. The treatments range from Javanese lulur massages to facials to full 3.5 hour relaxation packages. All end with a relaxing health drink, and a cold towel to refresh yourself. Prices are not cheap, but these are guaranteed to send you to heaven!

Vertigo, the restaurant on the rooftop (61st floor!) of the Banyan Tree Bangkok is equally amazing. The entire restaurant is built open-air, so you feel like you're on top of the world literally. Vertigo serves international fare, and is a lovely place to hold business entertainment or enjoy a romantic dinner with the lights of the city twinkling below you.

Unique Quality: Top rate facility, ameneties, and service! A swimming pool on the 21st Floor gives you a nice view of the city. And the spa is world class. The hotel is an all suites hotel, so you get the extra touch of a nice receiving area away from the bedroom. Great food outlets. The Chinese restaurant here (Bai Yun) was voted best Chinese Restaurant in Bangkok. Pricey (one meal there could buy you three at Harmonique, or seven at Siam House), but with good food and a great view of the city (60th Floor), worth the extra $$ that you pay.
