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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sealover Will Always be on our top list of favourites.
We travel a lot mostly for relaxation and pleasure.We love Thailand and are partial to our starwood hotels. So we always try to find the new ones that might exceed our expectations.This one of our favourites never cease to get top marks.The Fab views,lovely suites,one of the best lounges in the industry.Where can you get 3-4 hours of a happy hour? in one of the most comfortable large lounges?
We have been regularly making sure not to miss our short sojourns here for years and we love it. On this visit we were celebrating a special anniversary and were so pleasantly surprised with a delicious lovely cake. Sweet views,sweet food and love filled the air.
From excitement of check in to saddness of departure,we loved every minute of our stay. We always feel sorry to leave.
Our thanks to all the staff,senior & junior.They all play such a wonderful role in making our visits so special.
We look forward to our next visit with great anticipation.
Our thanks to all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MaverickMRAW No longer an Amazing BKK hotel
This hotel used to be special and unique Bangkok hotel. Over the passing years newer hotels have sprung up all over town while the Royal Orchid has become rather staid and tired. The room, while clean was bland and basic, with noticeable wear and tear of the furniture. Room service menu missing pages and falling apart.
Breakfast buffet was a large affair, but impersonal and felt more like a large cafeteria and staff, while smiling seemed overworked and rushed.
Public areas were fine but just bland and unmemorable. Even the pool area in Portuguese Embassy garden seemed tired.
Location wise, its a bit to far to walk to to Silom area, but the shuttle boat to the BTS train stain was a nice touch.
I feel Starwood are targeting this property more towards tour groups as they have better located business hotels in BKK.
Overall, just found this once impressive hotel has become rather bland.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RabbitConway This was an incredible experience
The hotel was lovely and our room was exceptional with views of the river. The Hotel was conveniently located with the river shuttle to the Skytrain. We had a problem with a tour we had booked and the desk staff and the Consierge went out of their way to help us with phone calls and assistance because we could not speak Thai.

After a busy day of sightseeing and braving the traffic of Bangkok the Royal Orchid was a welcoming ending to the day. The rooms were large and comfortable and the property had everything needed to relax and enjoy. The staff was very helpful with all our needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tae007 Nice view
Hotel is nice as it is starwood but the staffs or service does not meet my expectation (compare with the experinces I had with other Starwood hotels). Anyway, it is still a good choice for the people who are coming to Bangkok and want to see a real Thai city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tusenkatts One of our favorite hotels worldwide
We have about 6 hotels worldwide that we feel are special and we like to return to. This Sheraton is on that list. The staff is welcoming, the lobby very attractive and the Thai music in late afternoon is lovely. All the rooms appear to have a view of the main river through downtown Bangkok and it is fascinating to watch. A shopping mall is connected and downstairs there is a ferry for crossing the river. Area restaurants are good - we like Yok Your across the river and Riverview in the mall - and I love the massages on nearby streets. This last time, I had a great one at Naree Massages Beauty Salong on Siphraya Rd. There is a 7-11 on the same street. The Italian restaurant in hotel was excellent the one time we ate there. Service is outstanding at this hotel and the basket/bowl of local fruits appreciated. Sometimes you are lucky enough to get a brochure that explains what the fruits are and how to eat them. We will return again! Several times we have used the concierge to help us get s a special trip and they have always come through for us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SYL1 Value in hotel
The hotel is very convenient situated next to the river. The hotels restaurants offer very little value for money and it is much better to eat outside. The staff are friendly and helpful. I like the lounge and bar area as well as the computer and relaxation area.

Being by the river imparts a certain tranquility. Yet it is a stone's throw from the City Centre. The staff is well-trained and makes one feel downright at home.
