Historical Traveller Reviews of Amari Boulevard Hotel

Disappointed

from pattypants
The Amari Boulevard was a disappointed on all levels. We stayed 2 nights at the end of our 25 day trip throughout Asia and this was to be our end-of-trip slurge on a nice hotel. You can do MUCH better for your money elsewheres. We are not overly fussy people but we work hard for our money and we felt really ripped-off. The hotel driver who picked us up was rude (maybe because our plane was late arriving and he had to wait?). My husband had to request twice to the driver to lower his speed under 100 mph!, the airport pick-up was supposed to be free with the package we purchased, but we had to argue to get it removed from our bill even though we had their email confirmation with us showing it was included! Their front desk staff has as much warmth as toll booth collectors. The fruit and flowers that were supposed to be in our room on our arrival (again supposedly included) came the day we checked out, after we repeatedly asked for it.The towels were so threadbare you could literally see the threads hanging down. Pathetic. We requested a late checkout and they came in sometime during the day when we were out and removed all of our towels from the bathroom. Surprise when you're stepping out of the shower! The pool is very small for a hotel of that size, and it closed at 6pm, just when you are coming in from a hot day in Bangkok and want a refreshing dip.
By the sounds of the shouting from other unhappy customers, at least three that I heard, my husband heard one other, at the front desk (which is very unusual in Asia to hear anybody raising their voices)we were not alone.
Check your bill carefully for the overcharges and their nickle and diming. Free paper that was also supposed to be included? Guess again.
The one positive thing about the hotel was the quality of their breakfast buffet, if you don't mind their indifferent staff.
Seems to us the Amari Boulevard needs a new GM.

Pleasant base whilst visiting Bangkok

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during a 2 week holiday. I was initially disappointed by our room and the bathroom. The photos on the website made them look a lot nicer. Also, the reviews on this website are so full of praise.

However, it is probably fine if you are just in Bangkok for a short stay like us. It's not too expensive per night, it's clean and the Thai restaurant is perfectly good. Room service was also good- and they were very nice about fulfilling our food requests at 3am when we were jetlagged. It's also well located being near the skytrain and quite close to the airport.

The pool area is small and the food is quite expensive (more so than some 5 star hotels we have stayed in) but neither of these things are the end of the world if you have come to see Bangkok as most people are going on elsewhere later.

Just suberb! Great choice for city tourism.

The location of the hotel cannot be beat. At just under US$100 a night, you get a a good room, excellent public facilities, staff who go beyond expectations, and a location very close to everything -- walking distance to many places and to the Skytrain. I have stayed at the Peninsula which is fancier, but I had a much better time at this hotel. Breakfast buffet (extra charge) was outstanding. In-house travel agent treated us incredibly well.

s a 10!

No complaints! We had the perfect experience at Amari Blvd. First we got an upgrade to a beautiful suite due to late check in. The suite is in top condition, tastely decorated and very clean. Nice marble bathroom with his and hers sinks. An employee stopped by the room to drop off an orchid and to wish us a happy new year. Not to mention when we told reception that our room was too cold, they sent someone immediately and the person showed up almost as soon as we got back to the room. Talk about prompt service. The concierge desk arranged a wonderful tour for us with a very knowledgable guide who spoke fluent English. We were told this hotel is located in the red light district, but we don't know for sure and never noticed any difference once inside the hotel. I don't know about the other Amaris but this was a very plesant stay and I would return again if back in town.

A Sereene Oasis in a Vibrant City

from Tim4
Excellent hotel location, very nice facilities, nicely appointed rooms, quiet, and exceptionally warm and friendly staff. Definitely a 4 or 4.5 star hotel. We will definitely stay there again.

A strong feature is the presence of a World Tours representative at the hotel. That company has great tours, a great staff, and will bend over backwards to assist.

The neighborhood is filled with small restaurants, taverns, galleries, money exchanges, and a nice 24 hour food shop right across the street. There is easy access to major shopping and tourist sites around town.

Three small items that could be improved upon:

1. several reps at the hotel concierge desk did not speak good English, hence were of marginal help;

2. we had problems with the air conditioning in our room and, eventually, were upgraded to a deluxe, corner room; and

3. internet access at the business center at the hotel is expensive, but if you want to do some heavy work there are several intenet cafes a minute walk from the front door.

Personal touches made our stay memorable

from showpony
I stayed at the Amari Boulevard at the end of a trip to Cambodia and was impressed with the experience. At the beginning of our holiday we had stayed in the Royal Orchid Sheraton which was more expensive, however it was the Amari Boulevard which provided the little details that made the stay special - complementary fruit, a complementary watermelon juice on check in as our room was delayed for a couple of minutes. And the fact that the staff remembered our names and greeted us whenever we passed through the lobby was unexpected and rather charming.

Excellent hotel in central location

from Stadybelle
We have just spent 2 nights in the Amari Boulevard hotel and thought it was fantastic. We stayed in a superior room, the rooms are fairly small but for the amount of time you will spend in it in this bustling city it is an ideal place to stay. The king size bed was fantastically comfy and the walk in shower was fantastically refreshing. The breakfast was varied and plentiful. We didnt use the pool but did have a look and it was on a lovely terrace. We stayed on the 8th floor facing the road but heard hardly any outside noise at all. The staff were pleasant and friendly. It is ideally located for the Nana sky rail station-literally 2 mins walk. Right in the centre of Sukhumvit so lots to do within easy walking distance. Would definately stay again.

Great location, good facilities

from neils_den
My wife and I love wandering around Bangkok and soaking up the atmosphere and for that this hotel is well-located on Soi 5 just off Sukhumvit Road. Walk out, turn a block left along Sukhumvit and then straight up the escalator for the excellent Skytrain (Nana station).

This means exploring Bangkok is relatively quick and easy, with easy access to the Metro (one Skytrain stop away or a few minutes walk at Asok Station, Soi 21), the river (go to Saphan Taksin on the Skytrain), the weekend market (again, the Skytrain, Mo Chit station), a blast along the klongs by manic river taxis, etc.

It's also close to a ramp for the expressway (toll road) so you should be able to get to the airport in good time for 200 to 300 baht including tolls. Providing you avoid Friday rush hour, use a meter taxi, and the driver uses the meter...

The hotel is in two sections, the older part (perhaps 10 floors) and the newer section (around 25). We were upgraded after our return from Cambodia to the 24th floor. Stunning views with massive picture windows but I'm not sure it would really be worth paying any extra over our previous 11th floor room.

Unfailingly polite and friendly, the staff do a fine job and if you turn up dusty and sweaty wearing sandals and shorts after a long day sight-seeing they still smile and greet you. Try that in London or New York and see what happens!

Good buffet breakfast with egg chef and all the rest. Pretty much the norm for better Thai hotels, but a nice start to the day. However if you want something cheaper cross the road outside the hotel and go into the Foodland supermarket - sit at the bar next to locals, shoppers, ex-pats, other tourists etc. and get your fried rice with chili for 50 odd baht or (if you really must) they'll do English breakfasts. Foodland also very handy for bottled water.

The hotel restaurants (two of them are a way up the road) are typical Amari, good quality and decor and not especially cheap. But get out and eat at a proper Thai restaurant - get a meter taxi to take you to Baan Khanitha 36/1 Soi 23, Sukhumvit Road (or else get the Skytrain one stop along to Asok, walk up soi 21 a short way and turn right along Soi Cowboy for some nightlife bar scenes!) then get a cab up soi 23 or be prepared for a moderate walk. But it's worth it for really good proper Thai cuisine in a lovely setting. Not wildly expensive either. They'll get you a cab back.

Got carried away. Some of the surroundings might not be what you expect (street stalls and so forth) and perhaps not suitable for your Mum but I think it's a fun area and really well-located for exploring. Basically, the hotel is good value and well equipped. On those terms it gets full marks and this is where we'll stay on our next trip.

Another upgrade

from LucyF
Second time staying in this hotel - and again we got an upgrade when we checked in. It is a realy haven from the bustle of Bangkok, and we love it. Clean, friendly, lovely. Also - a tip - try the cafe at the supermarket over the road for some authentic Thai food on your doorstep - great fun and very cheap, and the locals eat here too.

Centrally located

from rachlamb1
Stayed at the Amari Boulevard room only with Trailfinders for 3 days after a wonderful relaxing holiday in Koh Samui.
Hotel is located on a side street just off Sukhummvit Road, very close to Nana Skytrain station.
Hotel has an impressive entrance hall and lobby all in marble.
Our room was on the 9 th floor, not a great view,small balcony, but was clean. Small bathroom but will all facilities.
Pool on 6th floor great for a quick dip, after a hard day walking round the city!
Overall a centrally located hotel, close to the Skytrain which enable access to the rest of this very large city.

Top Local Tips for Bangkok

Always Go to the Oriental Hotel and Have Breakfast Whether you are staying at the Oriental Hotel or not, I recommend you go have an early morning breakfast at the hotel and dine on the Chao Praya River. It is an amazing place to have breakfast as you overlook the river and the river boat traffic. If you don't make it for the sumptuous buffet breakfast, go for the nighttime dinner buffet. If you are not sure you even like Bangkok (and we love it) this might change your entire perception of Bangkok. We cannot recommend this enough (and we've stayed at the hotel 50 plus times).

SUNDAY SHOPPING AS AN OLD TRAVELER TO BANGKOK, I ADVICE EVERY ONE TO GO SHOPPING IN SUNDAYS BECASUE THEY USUALLY DCREASE PRICES IN MOST SHOPS ESPICAILY THE LOCAT MARKET WHICH YOU CAN FIND MANY USEFUL STUFF WITH LESS PRICES THAN THE SHOPS IN THE BIG MALLS... about taxis always request from them to use the meter as they sometimes they would like to take benifit from tourist s

I booked in advance and got a great deal I have noticed that when you book in advance on the internet well in advance you can get a great deal.
