Historical Traveller Reviews of Novotel Bangkok On Siam Square Hotel

Great hotel in a great location

from Taniquan
This was my first stay at the Novatel and I was very impressed. It could easily pass for a 4 star hotel. The location is perfect being across the street from a new large shopping center and the sky train. The roof top pool was great and very welcoming after walking around all day. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Disapointed

from RnDKirby
This was my third trip to Thailand and my first time staying at the Novotel. The rooms were larger than other hotels in Thailand, but the service and amenities were lacking. The staff was rude and not helpful. When I asked a front desk clerk how much it was to send a post card his response was "I don't know" which he said as he turned his back on me and walked away. They charged extra for things like internet access and they wanted $5.00 for a bottle of Singha beer by the pool. In the past I have stayed at the Amari Boulevard and been very happy and that is where I will stay again in the future.

Fantastic !

I stayed at this hotel for a total of 4 nights with my fiance and we LOVED it. I really don't have one bad thing to say about it.

The room was not small at all. It was a good size and so was the bathroom. It was nice and clean and had a mini bar/fridge and cable TV.

The views from the room were great. We stayed in room 1321 (13th floor). Ask for a room with a view of the MBK center.

The buffet breakfast and dinner were both excellent with a huge variety of food.

I didn't use the gym/pool, so I can't comment, but it looked nice.

The nightclub is quite seedy, but we still had a good night dancing there! Good place for single men, if you know what I mean :)

The location of the Novotel is amazing. Right near the MBK center (walking distance). If your female and love clothes, make sure you get a cab to the "Platinum". There are many floors of great clothes for really cheap. You can spend a full day shopping there!

I highly recommend this hotel and will be staying here again at my next stay!

Ten out of ten

from Dee28
We had a fantastic three night stay at the Novotel in Bangkok. The hotel is located within walking distance to the Siam Emporium and MBK centre which is ideal for shopping. The Siam Sky Train station is about a 500m walk too, so you really can't beat this place for location.

Many reviewers have said that the hotel was run down but our room was fantastic as were all the facilities that we used. The breakfast selection was one of the best we have ever had, the staff were very friendly and the service we receieved was excellent.

We highly recommend this hotel.

Hard to beat location

from A TripAdvisor Member
A little bit worn-out Hotel in a hard to beat location, right in the the shopping heart of Bangkok. Stay away from the suites, better get an standard or superior room, you won't get much comfort in the suites, just more room and smelly carpet. The pool on second or third place is nice, the breakfirst buffet is ok, but there is an excellent thai-french bakery just two blocks away so better think twice...A good choice is the Kobe Steak House too...Overall this place lives from it's location, which is much better than staying in the Sukhumvit area...

Excellent stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
We had been staying at Novotel Siam Square for 2 nights last November. The room was quite nice; so was the service. We were pleased to be complimentary treated with the local exotic fruit and the next day we could admire a beautiful flower in the vase. I would recommend great restaurant with Sri Lankan cuisine adjacent to Novotel. The main advantage of Novotel definitely is a superb location.
Here you are really in downtown with a variety of good restaurants and only 10 minites walk to MBK to do shopping. There is a nice Japanese restaurant at the 4-th floor too. Siam Discovery mall is next door to MBK.
Do not go home without seeing Wat Phra Kaew – the royal shrine and the home of the sacred Emerald Buddha. It adjoins the Grand Palace (though closed for restoration).

Great!

from sgorin79
This hotel exceeded my expectations. As many others have mentioned the location is prime with great shopping and dining near by. The staff is quite efficient and welcomes you with legendary Thai hospitality. Our room was on the 18th floor and offered a great view of the sky line (and lighting storm). The bathroom was lovely and the beds were comfortable. The pool was grand, the massage/spa services were extensive and the room service was prompt and relatively affordable. The bellhops and valets were also extremely helpful and friendly. To me this hotel is a great value...It provided us with a tranquil oasis to return to after a day of exploring the chaotic wonderland that is Bangkok.

Great Location Novotel Siam Square

from Cappuccino_ec
Hotel location is definitely a +! Very convenient for shopping at Siam Square and within walking distance to MBK and WTC etc. It's only 3 min walk to the train station. Great location! However, the standard rooms are quite small (if you don't mind), but compensated with friendly and helpful staff.

Great Value Central Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Novotel Siam Square in Bangkok with my wife and 3 children (8,6,3) for 5 nights this August and can recommend the experience for any travellers who are looking for a comfortable and clean centrally located hotel in Bangkok.

Bangkok hotels are cheap by world standards anyhow, but this was excellent value for around $60 USD/night including full breakfast and taxes etc. I booked on-line through gothailand.com and had no probelms with the rate being honoured.

Previous reviews have commented on the renovations taking place and I think they are still going on as initially we were given rooms on the 7th floor for 1 night (until the connecting rooms we requested became available) and these were not quite as well presented as those we then had on the 18th (top) floor, but still not shabby and both large and comfortable.

The hotel is in the middle of Bangkok in Siam Square which has been described in other reviews. It is not an attractive area, but as much as I love Bangkok, I think it is fair to say that there are not many areas that you could describe as attractive in the CBD! We walked the area in both night and day though and felt completely safe. It is not a red light area.

The location is just a 5 minute walk to the Central Skytrain station which gives access to both lines and really is the most convenient way to get around the city - from the river in the south and west, to Chatuchak Market in the north (only 15 mins by the Skytrain). Despite what the guides say, you will find the weekend Chatuchak market open at least on Fridays also and much less crowded, though only about 30% of the stalls will be open.

Also handy to the hotel is the MBK department store (about a 10 minute walk) and a large cinema complex (though we didn't go there). I won't detail the sights and attractions of Bangkok as a guide book can do that, but I can recommend a day-trip to the Elephant and Crocodile Show near the Rose Gardens (our children loved it despite the summer heat). You can pat and feed baby elephants, go for an elephant ride (even the kids), watch elephant football and a mock war, and watch guys do things with crocodiles that would have Steve Irwin (the Crocodile Man) shaking in his boots.

A bit more on the hotel. The service is excellent and always with a smile. The tour desk has a large selection of activities that may be more expensive than some touts outside the hotels, but not by much. The breakfast may be "the same" each day, but the selection is great and - hey - it was free (so to speak). The internet photos of the pool do not do it justice as it is large and really quite nice and catches the sun most of the day. The salon does beauty treatments at a good rate and massage, not as cheap as outside, but still cheap as chips and you won't get propositioned (wives will like this!).

There is not much for the kids (no Kids Club or anything) but the pool is good as I have said and there is satellite TV with Cartoon Network etc. My kids also loved watching the Skytrain from our room windows (on the northern side of the hotel).

We booked a minivan to and from the airport in advance as we had a mountain of luggage. This cost 1500 Baht (about $40 USD each way) but metered taxis are plentiful and a fraction of this price so I would recommend this option to anyone.

This is our 3rd trip to Bangkok and we love it more each time we go. Sure it is hot and very crowded, but the whole atmosphere of the place is buzzing and exotic and we plan to head back again next year - most likely to stay at the Novotel again.

Standard hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
I would rate Novotel as a three star hotel. Our check in was delayed as the hotel did not have rooms ready on time. We could see that the lobby was full of other people waiting for their rooms too. The staff did not apologise for this and had an "oh well" attitude. I must say that they need to improve on the service at the front desk.

We had a clean & comfortable renovated room. Bathroom was a little cramped and bath tub-shower drainage was poor. Street music can be heard from our room on the 13th floor. We were staying in a non smoking room but other guest can be seen smoking with their room doors open on the same floor. Hotel staff was present on the floor but they did not take any action.

The hotel has a nightclub in the basement which was quite good (if you could ignore "solicitation/seedy" side of it). It is not uncommon to see solicitation in the lobby. The dancing duet are a little on the tacky side.

Otherwise, the hotel is in a great location, close to shops & skytrain. Great porter service and bakery.

Top Local Tips for Bangkok

metered taxis On arrival Bangkok Airport follow signs to public taxi stand (ignore all the touts, one told me 1/2 hour wait for a public taxi). There is desk at the taxi stand, they will ask for your destination, then give this to the taxi drvier, they will give you another chit of paper with the taxi drivers name and taxi number, also the additional cost of the taxi airport tax and toll ways, which will be added onto the fare. Our fare to Novotel Siam Square was 320 baht or AUD10. Private transfer companies were quoting AUD80 return for 2 passengers.

Metered Taxis Do not take taxis that do not charge by the meter. If any driver quotes you 200 Baht for your trip, look for another one. Taxis that wait by the side of the road for tourists will try to charge you 200 Baht. Flag down one that is on the move. It is not difficult to flag down one. However, foreigners especially US or Europeans may encounter many drivers that try to charge 200 Baht.

Shopping heaven! Bangkok is really a shopping heaven! From markets to super-mega-malls, here they have them all! Remember: always bargain! Counterfeit and original items could have very low prices there! I'm talking of Diesel jeans for as low a 20 USD!!So, empty your baggage and prepare to shopping!!!
