sick kids? no problem for Century Park

from ceeceesteele
We arrived late with our 13y.o. on 29 December and because the hotel was full couldn't obtain the usually friendly upgrade we'd been used to - we'd previously enjoyed an upgrade to a Junior Suite when travelling with our son. Generally we travel around October though the plus of travel in December is that the weather is so much nicer and cooler - you don't end up quite such a ball of sweat as you do at other times of higher humidity!
This time we ended up with the typical "triple deluxe" scenario of a trundle bed - comfy, but not great for a week's stay, though I guess it was just the time of year. They didn't seem too full of Christmas cheer, though the decorations were delightful - staff seemed pretty stressed and this didn't improve. It would be nice if they made a few more rooms with American-style bedding (2 double beds), rather than a monster plus a trundle - trundles are okay for smaller kids, but once you get to teenagers they just don't support them!
Having said that, when our daughter became violently ill after eating at their restaurant one evening (the only evening we've EVER eaten there - but over New Year, a lot of places do close up so there's limited choice in this district), and she spent the night being sick they were very good about letting us change room the next day. Even sent the hotel nurse (I swear she was straight out of the 1950's Dr Casey series - high Cuban-styled white heeled shoes, white nurses uniform complete with cap starched to within an inch of it's life, and Doctors bag full of goodies!! - very lovely, and we needed a chuckle by then!) who dispensed mixtures and arranged for the kitchen to keep our child in an endless supply of hot chicken broth for the next 24 hours so she didn't de-hydrate and was on the mend by the time we flew out. They were most concerned for her wellbeing - and discounted the meal for us by 25%.
Because it is a high quality non-aligned independent hotel (without a chain to back it up - it's not like a Hilton/Sheraton) I think the Century Park will need to look to more inclusions once the two hotel complexes being built (a huge one just around the corner, and another down the road) come on stream and offer some competition. One rarely gets much of a discount there. Century Park is very good and quiet yet so close to BTS transport, though since we first stayed there back in the 90's there are more options and probably better value for money closer to World Trade area. We wouldn't try to stay there again unless it were just the two of us, and when the new airport opens (on the other side of the City) it will lose more of its appeal - we'd initially found the ease of getting to and from Don Muang one of its attractions, but that was in the days before all the motorways. It is still very comfortable, with good bed linen and wonderfully heavy block-out curtains so you can sleep in, and the pool must be one of the coolest in the City. Appears to attract a European & Indian clientele in the main,( and the breakfast selection is skewed to those tastes,) with conference groups proliferating during the peak months.

One of the Best!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Before choosing which hotel to stay in bangkok, i read through almost all the reviews in tripod & asiarooms, and frankly with the price i'm paying for, i found that Century Park Hotel fits my budget and the best thing was, it has the highest ratings!

Upon reaching the hotel, i was amazed with the friendliness of the staff!!!!!!!!!!!
They greet you everytime they sees you. and another thing to note is, they do recommend you places to go if you asked, and whenever u stepped out the hotel, they will ask if u need taxi or something like that, as if to ensure you reach your destination safely!!

The rooms were execellent!! Pool was great! Breakfast was perfect!!!

Even though it might be a little outskirt from the Skytrain n town area and also comparing to other cheaper hotel u can get in town, YET this hotel has a 5***** service!!! :)

Goshh..i love this hotel so much..and it made me love bangkok even more!!!

Will definitely stayed there again when i'm back!!

excellent value for money

from A TripAdvisor Member
just to reiterate what other reviews have said in that very high standard hotel & is still one of the cheaper hotels - location prob not the most central but no problem as you can walk 5/10 mins to be at the skytrain n taxis r dead cheap - it's not miles out anyway - good relaxing pool with v good service n pool snacks to start ur day - would defo stay again

Great Service, Wonderful rooms

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Century Park was amazing. From the wonderful views of Bangkok, to the awesome pool, and reasonable gym facilities. The concierge and drivers were well-informed and provided great suggestions for places to eat, and things to see. A language barrier did exist between us and some of the drivers. When I travel back to Bangkok, there is no doubt where I will stay.

Loved it

from A TripAdvisor Member
My short stay during weekend 31.03.06 to 02.04.06 was great as the hotel is above my expectations.

True enaugh its a little bit far (by walking) to the nearest station even though it is visible from the hotel window but the hotel had substitute the "inconvenience" thru shuttle bus services (at specific timings of course) to hot shopping venues and the train station (nearest). Our train station is only 4 stops away from mo chit station (chatuchak).

We had no problem taking a taxi back from any location as the taxi drivers seem to know the hotel well-a tip though,you better say century park pratunam.

The hotel food is great and is served 24 hrs (you have to try the steak). The hotel crew were never tired of smiling even though my group were fussy with some of the arrangements.

The tv channels they have is of a variety - i would say the best channels i have ever viewed if compared with my other hotel stays at bangkok.

Unfortunately, the swimming pool ( a little small though) was under renovation but i still managed to take a peek of its view by the pool.

By the way did i mention travel time from airport to hotel is jus 15-20 min away (by expressway).A big plus point.I would definitely come back.

Best regards

Absolute heaven

from JP
Couldn't have wished for a nicer hotel, totally exceeded our expectations. Pool on roof was fantastic with great views and nice snacks (although expensive by Bangkok standards). Interior of hotel was great and rooms were amazing (showers were fantastic!)The concierge will get a taxi for you but if you flag one tyouself you can barter and get it cheaper. We travelled everywhere by taxi cos it was so cheap. Try Patpong night market - there is an amazing restaurant called the Mango Tree near by, great food with traditional Thai music and dancing

Hotel was better than we expected

from sandyhandz
We stayed at this hotel thru part of a tour. Hotel was actually better than we expected. But it definitely isn't 5* service: some staff seemed a bit irritated at times - probably communication? Have to ask four times for a glass of ice water (even spoken in Thai language) they keep referring you to the water that is cold. Rooms were nice enough and the location is ok. It takes a good 15 minutes before you will get to the BTS station and the walk to and from can be very crowded. Seems Victory Monument is a popular stop. You also have to cross a very heavy traffic circle to get back from the BTS. But the room itself was nice enough. Breakfast buffet was just ok.

good 4 star hotel, although not in the city centre of bangkok

from allesandro
renovated 4 star hotel near victory monument and the expressway, north of the city centre of bangkok. we stayed there 4 nights. good renovated rooms (we stayed at the 17th floor), with good views over bangkok city. small pool with not enough pool chairs around (i guess 20 beach chairs for a 40 floor hotel), so people are sunning on the ground. pool not suitable for swimming, although good for relaxing after a city exploration. well equipped fitness club. good breakfast and lunch/diner opportunities. the only disadvantage is that the hotel is not in the city centre. u could take the skytrain, it's about strolling down 10 minutes to the victory monument station, but as this skytrain is not very effective (it drives very slow and is always overcrowded), we usually took a cab, about half an hour to the city attractions, 15 minutes at nighttime. remember the traffic in the city of bangkok is always jammed, so we didn't make any problem of taking the cab to the centre as the cab rates are very low over there. a drive to the centre will cost u about 100 bath (approx; 3 dollar). take cabs with taximeters, and ask the drivers to put the meter on. u will find lots of drivers who are willing to take you in their cab at exuberant prices (a lot at night). don't let drivers fool around with you, everyone is trying to drive you to a gogo bar, a ruby factory or a silk export market. we don't advise you to take tuk-tuks in bangkok, unless u would have the experience to be gassed-up in the traffic jams (we had it). as taxi drivers are calling tuk-tuk in bangkok as maffia, we agreed after some tuk-tuk rides.

Good value but Rude staff

from resortguest
My previous stay at this hotel was several years ago when it was managed by the Century group (now part of Novotel) and I was quite impressed by the level of service then.

However, I recently needed a cheap place to stay overnight due to a layover in BKK, and I was shocked at how rude the staff are now. Before I was able to finish my question on the phone, they yelled at me to come down to the lobby if I require anything. And when I checked-out they didnt even acknowledge my existence after they took the keycard back from me, they just walked away; not even a nod to acknowledge the checkout process was done.

Each year I stay in 20-30 different hotels around the world, and my award for the "Most Rude Hotel Staff in the World" goes to Century Park Bangkok !!! No other hotel comes close.

Good hotel good value

from amig
We stayed at this hotel for a few nights in Dec 2005. The hotel is not central (located in the Victory monument area) but not a major problem as in Bangkok you use taxis to go almost everywhere. The BTS (skytrain) station is NOT nearby as some have suggested here but a good 10 min walk in congested streets.
The room was very nice, modern and clean as is the bathroom. Breakfast buffet is good with a selection of choices. I'm sorry, but our impression of the staff was not very good. They did their job but not much beyond it and I couldn't say they were very friendly. In one occasion we had to get up at 4am to go to the airport. As soon as we approached the front desk to checkout we were quite rudely greeted with a "Your Room Number?!?!" -- No 'Good Morning', No 'Please', No 'Sir/Madamme', in fact, no manners... We were surprised because this is unlike the Thai's (could be they were too tired at 4am? :-(
Overall, for a 4-star hotel I would say it is a good and convenient hotel with all facilities and therefore a good value.

Top Local Tips for Bangkok

We finished off Bangkok This was our second trip to Bangkok and for this we only allowed four days to finish what we had started, after our arrival and a 2 hour trip from Pattaya we checked in, unpacked and down the road to the Sky Train. It is the best form of transport around Bangkok, be advised if using taxis from the hotel only use the one called by the Staff, do not use the touts, you may not get to where you want to. This time in Bangkok we did the Floating Market and Rose Garden tour it is combined with lunch included and well worth the money. The night life is the same in Bangkok hasnt changed in a year, got some bargins in the night maket and in the day market in China Town, the best way to get there is Sky Train to Central pier and then Water Taxi to Pier 5. Mostly fixed prices in this area. My partner went to the sanke farm but its not for me. There is an extensive Gay Scene in Bangkok which provides some good food many straight people go there as well.

Tuk Tuk Be careful of the TUK TUK in Bangkok they are fast and have a lot of accidents

Meters Always request that the taxi driver puts on the meter in the cab before you set off. If you dont you could end up paying 3 or 4 times the right rate for your journey.
