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 3 out of 5 by JKYang Great river view room
The higher room, the nicer view. SPG floor room contains more drinking water, but the room conditions are not good as normal floor room I think. Good dinner buffet on Saturday, nice lounge host at lobby lounge.

It is a complete pleasure and a destination in itself. From the charming Remi in the lounge across the whole team, everyone strives to please. The secret garden pool is the best, an oasis of tranquility. Stay here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Coco3 A lovely and comfortable stay
As above. Great location. Pool and other facilities gorgeous. Not too happy that wifi in rooms was not free. In today's day and age this seems cheap and unnecessary. Otherwise very satisfied thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jhonson40 Comfortability and relaxation with Royal Orchid Sherton Hotel
Very kind and friendly staff. Comfortable boat to move to BTS station. Fresh and nice meals and amazing views in the Bar in front of river. Everything was fantastic and suitable for relaxation. And nice swimming pool for child as well as adult. Thank you, Sheraton!! to be able to make a good memory in Bangkok with my family.

Rated 2 out of 5 by yodayoda staff lacks of training
I will keep it short
- the front desk staff was very nice and polite when I checked in. Moreover, I got upgraded once he noticed that I am SPG member.
- after that everything just went downhill. A housekeeper brought my requested baby crib but only to leave it there once he pushed it pass the door. He didn't even walk into my room to set it up.
- the guest service agent use a very "not professional / zero-trained tone of voice" when I called to ask about wi-fi service.
- I received a call asking whether I checked in at reception since they "couldn't find" my registration card. Once I told them that I did check in and sign everything, that agent used "very informal" language with me (surprise, I don't know him personally)
- Called Room Service, insensitive tone of voice. Mostly silent. Not even reached a 3-star hotel standard
- Lastly, when I checked out, my invoice showed a "room upgrade charge". When I told the lady that I didn't request an upgrade, she asked if I had a breakfast (on the bill showed - room charge, tax, and service charge!!). I said no. She removed the charge without any apology.
Fine hotel, but very poor and unprofessional service. Probably not going back again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rainbow1993 comfortable room & convenient facilities
Spacious room with comfortable beds made our staying so pleasurable. Perfect Gym with helpful staff inside gave another happiness while staying here. And Shuttle boat has fancy decorating inside so we just enjoyed riding up & down along the river Chaopraya, let alone easy getting to the centre of city like Siam area & World trade center.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Walippa Room with a view
From high above the river, this hotel allows the visitor to experience comfort and leisure whilst taking in the busy scene of hustling river traffic.
The staff are the most polite and happy people and it is a joy to think of them as our friends.
We return to this hotel time and time again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrPR Great Club / Tower Lounge
This is our 2nd stay in June 2013 and 5th stay overall at the Royal Orchid Sheraton. So far, this is our best stay at this hotel. We felt very welcomed to be back at our home away from home for 4 nights.
The hi-lite for this stay is the great Tower Lounge experience: the wonderful customer service and the nicely renovated Lounge. It was great to see that the old furniture has (finally) been removed and the new decor put in place. Now the Royal Orchid Sheraton has the best Club Lounge in Southeast Asia with its amazing Chaophraya River view from the 27th floor, its excellent level of customer service from the friendly and warm staff, and its brand new furniture and space design.
Special thanks to several of the staff that made our stay a memorable and enjoyable experience...
Check-in @ Tower Lounge: K. Chunyanuth and K. Pornthip took great care to make sure everything is taken care of. It is nice for Platinum member to check-in at the peaceful Tower Lounge instead of the busy lobby.
Evening Cocktail @ Tower Lounge: K. Natchana and K. Chunyanuth remembered all our preferred drinks from previous visits and they took great care of us each evening visit, making sure that our drinks are always filled. The new salad station is also a nice addition to the Lounge.
Housekeeping staff for our 21st floor Executive Suite: our suite was always in great condition thanks to the hardworking housekeeping staff. From all of our stays here, our suite was the most well-taken care of by the housekeeping staff.
Check-out @ Tower Lounge: K. Kanjana and K. Nimit helped with the speedy check-out plus efficient arrangement for our luggages and taxi to the airport. We really appreciate their teamwork in taking care of us during this visit as well as in previous visits. Thank you!
We hope to come back here again soon...

Although the Internet WIFI has to be payed for a very high rate , the access to the Internet was quite poor and interrupted several times in my room 2302.
The Internet cost will in future influence my decission to stay in the Hotel again or not.

Great to be back at Royal Orchid Sheraton. A short, one-night stay, but a great one.
Always enjoy the view of the Chao Praya River from the Executive Suite and the breakfast buffet patio.
Overall, great service from the staff here. Received the most excellent service from K. Nimit from the Front Desk and K. Na from the Club Lounge check-in desk for Platinum member.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dayoff Staff needs more training
I had stayed at this property around Oct of 2012.View and access to river were some of the reasons why I came back this time. Last stay had some issues with food and door staff. I saw improvement with door staff which was great (did not dine at hotel this time). But this time, I encounter check-in/front desk staff that lacked information on current spg programs, which lead to long check in time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NickinHK Value hotel
Hotel is largely fine. Older grand Asiana style. Rooms a bit pokey but appointed okay and clean. Breakfast quite poor and not so much quality. But you come here for the pool and the gardens. This is the best thing. And with that in mind, it makes this large hotel a good value place to put up in Bangkok.

May I be frank....
Everything was almost perfect but the food was not to the expectation of 5 star hotel especially breakfast
Hope the management will improve on the selection of food and taste for the future

Once again The Royal Orchid Sheraton, Bangkok came up to our expectations with regard to Staff efficiency, friendliness and service.
My wife and I have stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions, and each time our stay just seems to get better and better.
Thank you all for making our holiday so enjoyable once again.

Although it has been almost 3 years (my job couldn't let me get away) since we stayed at the Royal Orchid and it seemed like everyone remebered us. We were greeted at the entrance and everything was in order. The staff was excellent and we really felt comfortable. Everything from breakfast, pool, dinner and drinks at the lobby lounge was enjoyable. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 Awesome River View
I got upgraded to a junior suite. The river view was awesome.
The club lounge is very spacious with great 180 views; the food offering was much less than the other SPG properties in Bangkok; but it was good.
Had to carry my own bag from BTS and onto the boat and then from the boat to the check-in. Not one staff offered to help.
I left my computer power cord, when I called a day later they had it. I am very happy for that, but I think they could have sent an email to tell me.
Overall a nice property, but it is off the beaten trail a bit, so make sure you don't mind waiting for the boat to the BTS.
