Rated 3 out of 5 by PiedmontWalker Disappointed
This is the 3rd time I've stayed at the Royal Orchid; the first two times were great, but the 3rd was disappointing - maybe my expectations were too high.
- great location with terrific views of the Chao Praya river from every room
- staff is extremely friendly and helpful
- property is within walking distance of Chinatown
- the hotel does not support the Green Choice program
- I am a Gold SPG member and free in-room Internet access was not provided even though it is listed on the SPG website as a Gold member benefit and I specifically requested it. On two occasions when I used the public wifi on the second floor I was bitten by fleas.
- the courtesy passenger boat to the Sky Train station only leaves every half hour, whereas the other hotels provide this service every 20 minutes.
- This is a great resort-type property to relax at if you don't need to use the Sky Train very much, and you don't need in-room Internet access.
- There is a large lot of empty land across the river and next to the Millennium Hilton; it looks ready for major high rise construction, which makes me expect a lot of day time noise in the near future for both hotels, so I would not book at either property until the construction is completed.

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 !!!!
