Good value

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 3, 2006

The Royal Benja hotel is very well situated, only 5 minutes walk to Nana BTS station. The surrounding streets offer the best of the diversity that city in general relishes in: Immediately the west side of the hotel is the Bangkok's "Arab" quater, filled with many great Egyptian restaurants, as well as numerous beauty salons and "massage" parlors, in case that is what you are looking for. A little further west, on Sukhumvit road is the notorious Nana Plaza.

To the east of the hotel, within walking distance, are the uber-chic hangouts such as the Bed-Supper Club and the Q-Bar, as well as other high-so places to see and be seen in.

The hotel's interior is superbly clean and fairly luxuriuos - to an extent unimaginable for the same price in other large cities.

The breakfast buffet is large, offering Thai, Chinese and western morning favorites - and is included with the room.

The pool and "work-out" facilities exist, but are nothing to write about.

I was able to get free wifi in my room on the29th floor.

Unique Quality: A particular plus of staying here was the view it offered of the busy Sukhumvit district of Bangkok. The price of roughyl $50 per night was worth just for that.

Directions: If you are standing at an intersection of Sukhumvit Road and Soi 5, and looking north - that is away from the skytrain - you will see the hotel form a deadend at the end of Soi 5. It's a is very large hotel, with a bright red neon sign on it's roof.

Great hotel at cheap price

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 25, 2005

This large hotel offer 400 rooms. The bulding is thin and every room look on Sukhumvit road. Really amazing panoramic corridor, you can see Phetburi road, the room offer incredible space for the price (about 30 USD) and the bathroom is with separate shower and room. Nice terrace with pool. I have a good breakfast on the coffe shop. This hotel is really popular and offer one of the best price in town for this quality. The location is on the end of soi 5 Sukhumvit, 10-15 minutes walk to BTS station.

Unique Quality: Good quality, cheap price

Directions: In the end of soi 5

An OK highrise hotel on Sukhumvit

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 23, 2004

The Bel-Aire Princess was fully booked on one of my trips, so I checked some of the nearby hotels, and got a good price on the Royal Benja, just down the same soi (side-street). It's a high-rise place, so you get a great view from the rooms on the upper levels.

However, to some extent you get what you pay for; the hotel was showing a few signs of age, and the bathroom in my room had a few broken fittings. The staff were friendly though, and the room was comfortable enough, and had cable TV. The Soi 5 location is great as well, with lots of local shops and just a short walk to Nana Skytrain station.

Overall, it's not a bad place if you want an OK hotel towards the cheaper end of the price range; but make sure you don't pay the hotels "official" rate of 85 dollars + tax for a room - it's certainly not worth that. I got a booking through www.asia-hotels.com for 105 US dollars for 3 nights stay...

Directions: At the end of Soi 5 off Sukhumvit; Nana is the closest Skytrain station.
