Rated 4 out of 5 by Nitnoi Telephone charges
Everything went smoothly until we were checking out. We received a number of telephone charges we didn't make. My partners did a few phone calls to local mobile numbers. But the bill we were charged included local fix numbers !! The front desk staff couldn't do anything but provide the numbers dialed. We are sure we didn't make all the phone calls. But we didn't have time to get things straight with the management. So we just paid them!
For all the visitors, please be careful when using the in-room telephone, ok?

We started our honeymoon at his hotel and could not have asked for anything better!!
The food was great, the room was great, but the staff were the best!! The Services manager had our best interests in mind right from the beginning! Thank you Nimit! You were such a gracious host for my wife and I. The convenience of the shuttle boat to the pier was an excellent bonus! We cannot wait to return to the land of smiles!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bastbjerg The place in Bangkok.
The Royal Orchid Sherraton is magnificently situated by the river, which in many ways is a part of the cultural part / development of Bangkok.
In 1893, when the France tried to Colonize Thailand, it was also just because a French warship was sunk in the right place in the "river" that France was forced to sail to the east, thereby avoiding Bangkok to become a colony.
All that one can not help but think of when sitting on the terres and beeing excellently hosted by the very gracious "crew".
Since 1984, when I was at the hotel the first time, we have only had good experiences with staying at the Royal Orchid Sherraton.
If you are so privileged to live on the top floor, so it will be just another reason for a stay at the Royal Orchid Sherraton, should not only be "One night in Bangkok".

Our stay at the Royal Orchid Sheraton was most enjoyable, with fantastic view of the river.
I found the Hotel to be in a good location to get to all the places we wanted to go to.
Very friendly, clean & spacious room. A nice central bar area with once again lovely friendly service.
Would 100% stay at this Hotel again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dayoff Value
great location due to view of the water and easy access to water transporations (boat). But not always easy to catch a cab front of the the hotel. stayed here several times since 2010 (rotate between W, Westin, and Sheration Grand) but room conditions seem to be hit or miss. During this trip, the room seemed littled more damp and had rather unpleasant scent. I asked to have my room changed, but was told it was already a non-smoking room/floor. Thus, asked to have someone come up and spray scent deordeorizer/sanitizer..but could not get rid of the scent. I would recmmend the hotel to place air purifier or have one available in cases like this. Other than that... (altough room air quality is of great protion to any hotel experie3nce) great SPG recogniztion as I was upgraded and friendly staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chabeli24 Honeymoon
We celebrated the beginning of our Honeymoon in this great city hotel. Our stay was very pleasent and the hotel is very good located. Only minus point was that we lost our mobile in the taxi and even with the registered number from the concierge they were not able to find it. Disapointing a little bit as we didn't understand why the staff is taking the time to write down each taxi number if it is anyway useless.
Otherwise it was a very nice stay and we really enjoyed.

On the 2 occasions we stayed to break our journey we found the hotel staff went out of their way to assist us with very early departures. The bar & dinning room people were incredable and the seafood buffet was brilliant. All the food tasted fresh & was flaversom. The hole atmosfere was elegant & relaxing with good entertainment. The cocierge departments actions for our protection with Taxis to go outside the hotel was reassuring. Thank you Thailand Shereton

Rated 5 out of 5 by tusenkatts Fascinating River View
This is our favorite hotel in Bangkok and one of our favorites worldwide. Welcome is always warm, beds are not as soft as in the USA but some of the most comfortable in Asia. All rooms have a river view and one wall is all glass so you can watch the river traffic. While there is a spa at the hotel, there are local Thai massage places just a block or two away. We prefer the regular rooms to the executive rooms, more spacious but no bathtub

Rated 5 out of 5 by Henkcbx upgrade to the towerrooms
On arrival we were asked if we wanted an upgrade to the tower , we accepted the offer , and we were happy we did , free laundry , free cocktail's and snacks . we asked for the air conditioner temp to be adjusted it was 21C inside the room.
Asked this after the first night at the desk.
Sleeping was not a problem in the cold but you could not sit for a long period in the room....
we enjoyed our stay and the view from room 2703

Rated 4 out of 5 by lcpteck Nice boat ride along the river
Had a short 4 night stay and I was upgraded to a Deluxe Premium River View Room, which is basically a higher floored room as I believe all rooms face the river. Hotel and rooms have definitely aged though it is well maintained and have the classic look.
Room was adequately sized and nice usage of the space hence you don't feel cluttered. Bathroom had a shower/bathtub combo which isn't my preference but only it seems only Junior Suites and above have standalone shower system.
Since the location is near the river, there is a complementary boat ride from the hotel to the nearest BTS station (by the river) which I always enjoyed while touring the city. There is also a public river boat station right beside the Sheraton which makes traveling to places like the Grand Palace and Wat Arun very convenient. Do take note of the direction of the river boat before you board.
My room rate did not come with breakfast hence didn't try out their breakfast buffet. Although I did order from their room service menu once and it was pretty average. Do note the orange juice was not freshly squeezed.
Staff were helpful and friendly hence made the stay

Rated 1 out of 5 by LeoM A failed stay
Thought we needed a hotel for the night - however our airplane-tickets changed shortly after we arrived to the hotel - therefore we ended up staying in the room around 1 hour. However the hotel reception did not want to compensate anything of hour room payment - I dont find this particular customer-minded and will consider my future hotel-prefererences when going on busness travels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Manop The last time to stay here
I drove a car with my family to check in your hotel on 31 Aug.'13 but The door man unhelpful us untill I asked him to remove my bag, He got it and pushed the door shut very strong. It was the first time someone do like that with me. I was very angry and then the asist. front mng. has decided to solve the problem.
But from this event. I'm so sorry to told you, I've decided that was the last time to stay here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2222 Check out
I was not impressed with this process. The cashier said we had used some items which we knew were simply moved to another place in the room( water with red cap). He eventually removed the charge but that is not the point. I asked that I received an email from him confirming that indeed we did not use the items and that they were still in the room. My credibility is important to me. It was not the costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spider219 great service and value for money
While the hotel has great features it is the staff and their service that standout. The staff are very welcoming friendly but very professional in their duties. From check-in to check-out to ordering taxis all ran like clockwork. Our stay was made even more enjoyable by the entertainment in the lounge each night. I feel the hotel was let down by its location and access to public transport.

I was at this hotel for a business conference. Every aspect of the service and facilities at this hotel were superb. The morning breakfast buffet had exceptional variety of good quality foods. The room was spotless and quiet. There was also a much wider selection channels on the TV than I am used to at international hotels. Overall, there isn't much more that I could ask for in a hotel.

Being on the river was incredible. The views, the hotel, the staff were all wonderful! Breakfast in the hotel was extraordinary!! There's also a really nice restaurant around the corner that also has a spa and everything was awesome!! There is a company on the first floor where you can book tours and get information. This was one of the best vacation experiences I've ever had! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by BVal Fabulous place to stay alone the river
This is a must place to stay when visiting Bangkok. The river reive is amazing. The hotel shuttle boat (ultra comfortable) makes it easy to connect to sky train. The service and friendlyness of staff is awesome.
The pools are fantastic and so is Sambal bar by the river and pier. Awesome food and drinks! Plus they made the Siam Sunray for us which wasn't on the menu.

It has been 8 years since we stayed at this hotel and there has obviously been cosmetic changes but it still remains our favourite hotel in Bangkok - incredibly efficient and friendly service which makes this hotel a standout . Nimit at the front desk should be commended on his service . Great river views and convenient location. We will be back!!

Stayed at this hotel with my dad during our visit to Bangkok.
We got upgraded to a junior suite. The river view was amazing.
The club lounge is so spacious, and the food offering was wonderful! We always looked forward to going to the lounge when we came back from our sight seeing outside.
Wonderful place and wonder staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by David55 Location by the river suits me
The pool area and generous garden grounds give this hotel a resortlike feeling, even though you are in a large city. Staying right on the banks of a charming river bustling with life only added to our excitement. There is great food to be found both in and around the hotel, and I recommend this hotel warmly for its service and nice atmosphere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by blove1150r Amazing location & Service
The staff is amazing. The ladies at lobby are a delight with great service and the rooms looking over the river are awesome. Add the Wan Massage Parlor down the street and you are in heaven. A Thai massage at the end of the day for an inexpensive 400Bhat from a strong yet beautiful Thai girl is amazing stress relief. Ask for Ghee, Naht or Dai.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mgvm Good hotel, great view
I was upgraded to a suite with a marvelous view over the river. Very comfortable and great bed as usual.
Breakfast in the Club Lounge is a poor copy of the same in other Sheraton hotels and badly needs improvement.
Both restaurants on the ground floor are excellent and the service in the Thai restaurant was very good and attentive.
