This, hotel is in a great location. Beautiful inside and you can really feel like you are away from the hustle & bustle of the city. Bit more pricy than some but well worth it.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Dusit Thani Hotel

Still Good

from limehog
This is my second stay in this hotel. Came back here mainly because of it's location (both the skytrain and subway station are few minutes walk), good size room and service.
Breakfast is also good although there appears to be lack of
sufficient waiter/waiteress during morning peak hours.
Lobby lounge is lovely. A pity that did not have time to try their
restaurants particularly D'sens this time

Amazing hotel

from lovelyboy
I just returned from The Dusit Thani, Bangkok.
Before going to Thailand, my friend suggested me to stay there. Magnificent lobby, excellent and professional service. Only the price is a little bit high....but I love this hotel.
better than other hotels much...

An oasis from the dust, hustle and bustle of Bangkok

from les52
This is a luxurious hotel right next to a Monorail stop so you can escape without sitting for hours in a taxi in traffic. At 16 storeys with a fabulous all round view restaurant at the top, with a michelin starred French chef (NOT what we were expecting to find in Thailand), but undoubtedly one of the best meals I've had in my life, there were tasters and pre-course and mid-course and after-course courses! And all for about £15 a head absolutely amazing. The Thai restaurant also does a fabulous taster menu with five starters and about five sweets, and all for about a tenner (without wine). There was a good breakfast buffet which you could eat outside looking at the waterfall in the inner courtyard. Right opposite is a huge park, go for a walk at sunrise and see the locals doing tai chi, ballroom dancing, exercising and jogging. Watch out for the huge monitor lizards in and around the lake.
The rooms were great and everything was provided, bathrobe, slippers, etc. There was a huge foyer with live traditional music or piano, and on the lower ground floor a selection of shops including snacks. It was great to have a dip in the pool and cool off after a busy day sightseeing. The spa looked fantastic but the massages were very pricy - you are better going elsewhere as we did. Overall, for the price of around £80 a double room per night the quality was hugely more than you would get for that price in the UK!

Second vist and will again

from Stephen_Lloyd
Second time staying at this hotel which is good value in a great location. Each time I stayed in a club room and got upgraded to a corner room. Suites are better, as you would expect, but the corners rooms are ok, not large, and not as tired as the reviews suggest. Currently there is some development on the ground floor so not all restaurants are available. However, the hotel still has a good selection and the Thai restaurant is one of the best in town according to local guides. Certainly the food is excelletn and prices that raise an eyebrow as they are low. Excellent value. Staff are good and service high, but remember this is Bangkok. Leave the hotel and on the street people do try to con you. I met two "hotel staff" outside who tried to point us in the directions they want, similarly an "off duty polcieman" and Grand Palace manager all of whom tried to sell us something. All were on the street and frauds, Their style is low key, the con the same. Enjoy Bangkok as it is a great but don't be a stupid farang or your money will leave you. THis hotel is superbly placed to enjoy the city from it - facing Lumpini Park which must be visted at 7am on a Sunday to see the real Thailand.

Loved the Dusit Thani

from Starshine#1
Being a fan of "Chess the Musical", I had to a) spend "one Night in Bangkok" and b) it was going to be at the Dusit Thani...

I read the reviews and was slightly dubious, but the hotel was fantastic. The location is superb - it's much easier to explore Bangkok from the Dusit Thani than any of the hotels on the River. The skytrain is literally outside the door, and Silom road market and Patpong (if that's your thing) is a short walk around the corner.

My husband and I and our friend we were travelling with were also lucky enough to receive an upgrade to the executive rooms which had a great view of either Lumphini park or the pool. Lumphini Park Bazaar is a fantastic shopping spot and I'd recommend the Puppet Show, as well as being a good place to jog, do aerobics, tai chi etc etc during the earlier hours of the day (there are two outdoor gyms in the park and a swimming pool).

Having said that - the Dusit Thani's fitness centre is outstanding, and the pool is lovely - yes it's probably a little small for a big hotel, but it was never crowded, and I liked it because it was quite secluded by the plants and the hotel itself. The spa comes highly recommended also.

We received free drinks on arrival, and the buffet breakfast was superb.

The staff are extremely attentive, service is efficient without being too "in your face" and I like the way the beds always get turned down at night in Thailand!!

The bathroom was also excellent - two sinks!

We spent 3 nights there in total, and would certainly return for more! (particularly as Air Asia makes it so easy to fly...it's just like Ryanair!)

Great Location but stayed in better hotels

from LouiseandNick
Great location - skytrain is just around the corner and so is patpong. The hotel is nice inside and has some great restaurants - we ate in the thai and italian restaurants and both were very good. The rooms let the place down - need to be updated ASAP. Also wasnt impressed with the staff and the bell boys - would try and con you with taxis and try and get you to go to a tailor when you just wanted to know where the skytrain was - you really need to watch you back! Overall wasnt really impressed with Bangkok - as you prob already know - dirty, seedy and to be honest I never felt safe there.

To sum up the Dusit is an average hotel in a great location but I am not sure if I would stay there again.

Dusit Club Rooms are the way to go

from NZTravelGuy
I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and have to say the location is fantastic. Close to transportation and great markets. I was fortunate enough to stay in a Dusit Club Room which was brilliant. I was able to gain access to the Club Longe and Business Centre where there is room to relax in peace and take advantage of a few complimentary amenities/facilities. I would say the club room was of medium size but was nicely furnished and has loads of amenities. Probably a room more suited to the business traveller. The hotel is dated on the outside but has a glamorous lounge and bar inside. The staff were attentive and friendly. The pool is a little small but sufficient at quiter times of the day.

In summary; a great location, great staff and I would stay here again!

Great location

from MrsTino
Enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Bangkok on the way to Koh Samui. With the sky train & metro right outside & the vibrant Patpong area minutes away the Dusit Thani Hotel is an ideal base for a short break in Bangkok. We had an executive room on the 14th floor, with a view over Lumphini Park, and enjoyed breakfast in the hotel with a good choice of food on offer.

If you are in Bangkok would definitely recommend eating at Cabbages & Condoms which is just off Sukhumvit Road – just 4 stops on the metro from Dusit Thani Hotel! – Great food, great atmosphere and supporting a good cause (profits support HIV & family planning projects).

Would without doubt stay at this hotel if in Bangkok again.

Disappointing Stay

from Nomadgal
Both the skytrain and metro are around the corner from the hotel so this is one of the most convenient hotels in terms of location. However, the rooms are small (ours overlooked a rooftop) and the pool is ridiculously small for a hotel this size. Although the lobby and main restaurant are nice, the rest of the place seemed drabby and in need of a makeover. Although it wasn't crowded, we waited fifteen minutes in line to check in. The breakfast restaurant is on the basement floor in a dark, low-ceiling room overlooking the parking driveway. We had to ask three times to get some coffee. For this price, the service needs much improvement. The saving grace is their spa, which is absolutely beautiful and wonderful. Visit the spa, skip the hotel.

Great Location - Good Value

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Dusit Thani for 6 nights. It was our first trip to Bangkok and were unsure of the best location to stay. We found the proximity to the sky train as a huge benefit. Being able to walk 200m from the front door to the station was great in reducing time outside in the heat. The room we stayed in was the club room which had been recent upgraded. The room size seemed small in comparison to other 4/5 star hotels – but it didn’t worry us that much. The club room seems to have been designed for the single businessman. The restaurants were ok value for hotel prices – but I would recommend wandering around the area for a cheaper restaurant. The nearby shopping centres all have food halls with a number of restaurants. Staff at the hotel were excellent friendly and attentive. Breakfast was typical American /European style – nothing that special in comparison to other hotels. The Royal Thai restaurant was a huge surprise and there set menu was decent value.

Top Local Tips for Bangkok

Use the public taxi from airport You'll have to wade through an endless stream of people asking you if you want a taxi. Pay close attention, if they only approach westerners (or other obvious tourist), then they are out of money. Just keep moving towards the public taxi stands which are outside next to the shuttle bus. You'll see an offical person there that will take your desintation in English and give it to taxi driver. There is a 50baht service fee, but it is worth it. Also, if you are going to the city, there are 65baht of tolls, that you will need to pay (going and coming back). Enjoy.

gay area form this hotel is like a 5 min to walking distance to the gay area !!

General Advice Getting around Bangkok is relatively easy by taxi, Skytrain or underground (MRT). If you get a taxi make sure they use the meter. The best time to go there is Jan-April as at other times it can be rainy, although it usually rains very heavily for 1 hours or so. The food is cheap and do try the stalls on the street as they offer the best value. If you need a taxi when you arrive at the airport go up to 2 floors to Departures and go outside and get a taxi from there as there will be no queue and it should be cheaper. Remember to only get in a cab if they will use their meter.
