Rated 5 out of 5 by Cassie13 Fabulous.....again
How can this be? Despite/in spite of major renovations being conducted at this property , once again it shines. From the relocated Raintree Cafe for breakfast, mouthwatering and wonderful buffet, have to reiterate, best ever . Club Lounge excellent in every aspect, Punnurat once again, as always leads a stellar team. Staff all over , attend to guests with a smile and a seemingly genuine attitude. Cannot believe that a Hotel is so dependably good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JohnmcW Unexpected UNICEF donation
After I returned home, I noticed there is a 35 baht donation posted to my account that I am not aware of.
I think the hotel should ask instead of sneaking the charge on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flyingtailor My Shortest Stay Here
I was in at 8am and left at 1pm just came in for a nap and shower. The staff here took care of my needs as always the service at this hotel is amazing and has been since I have been coming here.
I am looking forward to coming back and enjoying one of my favorite hotels in Bangkok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sales007 Excellent Hotel, Rooms, Pool, and Decent Gym/Location
I stayed here for quite a few days during my vacation in Bangkok. I would gladly stay here again for many reasons. One of them is that the rooms are amazing. They are large in size, the slippers are comfortable, the robe is just heaven, and the bathroom is very large. It's also extremely clean, the beds are comfortable, and very high class.
Upon walking into the hotel, you just go "Wow" with all the decor. The staff were friendly to greet me and placed one of those flower bracelets on my hand. They were quick to check me into my room, offered me chocolate in my room, and a welcoming note. Now that is excellent service for a Platinum member.
When we needed items, we phoned downstairs and they were delivered quickly.
The breakfast is also top notch. Probably the best breakfast for SPG I have eaten at buffet-wise (I've probably tried 20+ SPG hotels).
The pool is also very comfortable. Spacious, great view, and relaxing.
The gym is mediocre. Not bad for a SPG hotel, but not the best either. Could use improvement, but then again, most of the SPG gyms in Asia are sub-par compared to the states.
Would gladly put this SPG hotel as #1 for my Bangkok travel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ded2 Disappointing hotel
I arrived after my stay in Koh Samui the Plaza Athenee. Run through the half Hotel, cause the taxidriver let me out at a Backform. No one World help me how to come to the recepition. After arriving at the recepition I was asked if I would depart. Then I got my key And come to the room.
Disappointing! 8. Floor, Noice from the Street, TV completly in the Wall, so you can't see from the bed. I found the only german Channel and Fond out, that it was the english Branche of DW. All other European channels in nativ Language only DW in english. My ask at the next day gave no result..
A very disappointing experiance after a great stop in Koh Samui. Both Le Meridien but completly differente. If I had know this I better had stayed in the Island and sägend the trouble in Bangkok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lufthansa7 Best SPG property in Bangkok
If you are an SPG elite, this is the hotel to stay in Bangkok. I've stayed at all of the SPG properties that are in it's "level" like the Royal Orchid, Le Meridien, etc. They all cost about the same, but the service and quality pale in comparison to this property.
I had three nights here which bookended a trip to Cambodia. Each time I checked-in, I was whisked away to the Club Lounge where registration was handled while I had a free drink and snacks delivered to me.
After consuming my drink, I was given a list of upgrade options and was able to select a room from the options.
The rooms were slightly dated, but the service and quality of the staff was impeccable.
-Very convenient BTS stop is about two blocks away.
-Breakfast is in the first floor restaurant and had a great variety of quality food.
-Pool is one of the nicer ones in Bangkok (better style and bigger than Le Meridien property).

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJ2020 Great stay at the Athénée Bangkok
This is a great SPG Bangkok hotel. The front desk staff are efficient and friendly . The breakfast in the Rain Forrest cafe is my personal favorite out of all SPG properties in Bangkok. The club lounge is well staffed and catered. Another favorite SPG benefit in Bangkok.

Rated 2 out of 5 by canuckle First Impressions are very important
Prior to my arrival, I received an email from the hotel requesting my arrival time. I arrived at 1pm (in my email, I said I would be there around 12-12:30). I checked in downstairs but since I am a Platinum member, they recommended I proceed to the Royal Club where they would facilitate my checkin.
Coming off of an international flight, I just wanted to get into the room and grab a shower.
I was surprised and disappointed when the agent said my room would be ready at 4pm as the other guest had a late checkout. Given that I had emailed my response AND check in is 2pm, I was quite disappointed with the response I was given. When I pushed back, I got a response that I could get a room by 2pm. I was confused, why would I be made to wait until 4pm if there was a room by 2pm????
I was also surprised when the agent said there were too many Platinums. It is a sad day when a hotel employee suggests that elite members are an issue. While I waited in the lounge, there were no drinks offered (a customary thing in Bangkok) and when I used the lounge later that evening, it was disappointing that the staff did not ask a large and very loud group of guests to keep it down (despite a big sign in front of the lounge requesting guests respect others by keeping the volume down.
The room I had was a bit dated, though the hotel is going through a total redo. I was also disappointed with the slow internet and the green rusty water filling the bathtub and lack of hot water in the afternoon.
Its too bad this was such an underwhelming experience, SPG has been a program I have used since it began (Lifetime Gold) and I have read many good things about this hotel (I have stayed at a few other SPGs in Bangkok). For me, the first impression was very bad and from then on, nothing was done to salvage my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pernan2 A wonderful overnight
We got an upgrade to a beautiful room on the 27th floor which was very welcomed as the hotel is undrgoing some renovations and only smoking standard room were available. The room was very spacious and well decorated and with right light ( so many hotel rooms are often too dim). The bed was extremely comfortable. The pool is great with nice surroundings and trees. The morning breakfast is outstanding!

After many visits to BKK this was my first stay at the PA, and found it outstanding in every respect. Staff was friendly and helpful. Happy hour at Glaze was most welcome followed by an excellent dinner in Thai restaurant. Cuisine choices abound at the hotel. Good location just a short walk to BTS. Good value and I will most certainly return.

Everything about this stay from the room, the restaurants, room service and staff recognition and attentiveness, was excellent. There were absolutely no problems or issues. My arrival was delayed because of a missed flight connection but the hotel had not cancelled my reservation as has happened at other hotels. This hotel is a three-minute walk from the BTS Skytrain, which provides a multitude of options for exploring Bangkok on your own. Thanks for another great stay.
