Rated 4 out of 5 by Jimmy72 Fantastic , but one flaw
My wife and I had a fantastic stay at The Royal Orchin Bangkok . The bed was amazing and looked forward to getting into it every night .
The only complaint I have ( and eventually the management sorted it out ) was that my Wife suffers badly with a feather allergy and always contact the hotel that I will be staying in a couple of months in advance to warn them that she has to have hypoallergenic bedding .
I received an e mail from The Royal Orchid straight after I emailed them stating this , and they were most accommodating to the request .
On arrival to the hotel after a 11 hour flight from the UK , my wife and I were tired and just wanted to get to our room and get some sleep , but when I checked the bedding it was all feathers . We went to reception and complained about this and eventually it was sorted .
I find it annoying in this day and age that I had to complain to reception about this scenario especially as I had pre warned the hotel months before .
Other than this blimp the hotel was amazing , just wish my suitcase had been big enough to fit the bed in !!!!
I nearly forgot to add , my self and my wife had a 2 hour massage in the spa , I wife is in the beauty trade and she said that it was the BEST treatment she has EVER had !!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andrew44 The right place in Bangkok?
One of the biggest question most people ask about staying in Bangkok is what area to stay in. The Royal Orchid I would maybe class as a little out of the centre of the life and soul of the city, but that can have it's advantages.... Firstly it's a quieter place to relax, but still has the constant flow of life on the river with canal boats, barges, pleasure boats & ferrys constantly passing by as you sit by the pool or riverside restaurants.
If you want to get to the tourist attractions or shopping malls, its easy enough to have concierge arrange a taxi for you or take the Hotels own free boat ferry to the BTS Skytrain terminal less than 10 mins away. There is also the public riverboat ferrys by the Riverside shopping centre next door taking you to other parts of the city for a very small fee.
The hotel itself is very efficiently run but maybe lacks the personal touch many Thai owned hotels give... I stayed in several hotels in the space of 3 weeks many offer you cold flannels and/or cold drinks upon your arrival to give you relief from the humid heat from outside. This is only a minor detail, but other areas this hotel excels in.
You are very promptly dealt with by either reception or concierge in a very friendly manner, problems are very quickly dealt with... a few times my door/lift key card stopped working and was changed within minutes.
The bars and restaurants are of a high quality with friendly and attentive staff. The all you can eat Buffet at Feast restaurant is a must try, just the starter buffet can fill you and if you can get to the end there is the 'as much as you can eat' dessert bar.
There are 2 different pools that are spacious and relaxing... one even has peacocks in its vicinity!
The rooms are spacious and well equipped ... even having filter coffee (decaff as well) an added bonus. every room has a view of the river.
I stayed a total of 3 different times during my time in Thailand, each time the hotel stored my luggage free of charge in between my stays.
On leaving the hotel for the final time I had booked a car to take me to the airport, that morning I was told my transport had been upgraded.... so I left in a bit more style!!!
Take my advice, sign up for the SPG (Starwood prefered Guest) It DOES give you extra benefits when staying there.
