Historical Traveller Reviews of Radisson Hotel Bangkok
Brilliant Stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Yes, the hotel is a distance from the main sites and shopping area, but we didn't find it a problem at all. The hotel puts on a free shuttle bus to the main markets and shopping plazas, and taxis are ridiculously cheap as long as you get a metered taxi.
We ate once in the restaurant on the ground floor and would recommend the buffet. There was a wide variety iof food and they will cook your noodles fresh in front of you.
I wouldn't advise using the internet in the hotel as it is expensive.
I have no problems in recommending this hotel.
Good Stop Over Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We arrived and there were no double non-smoking rooms available so with a smile I asked for a double room but smoking, they did one better and gave us a free upgrade to a suite no the executive floor. Lovely big room 10 min taxi ride to the main drag and this time we discovered the new Siam Paragon shopping centre... the biggest shopping centre in Asia and it was fantastic!!
There is an Aquarium in the basement and a Ferrari/lambourghini dealerships on the 3rd floor... something for everyone!
Quality hotel for a bargain pricefrom sdhayes
Got upgraded to the business floor and personally escorted to the room by the business assistant. Quality, spacious room.
Slightly worried about the location, but the hotel runs a free shuttle bus every 1/2 hr to the underground and a further shuttle bus to the major shopping destinations (MBK, Patpong etc) every 2 hrs - only 20-30 mins getting through the traffic in the bus, beats getting on the skytrain from a downtown hotel!
Quick 20 mins to the airport.
Location not great, but compensated for by the free shuttle and quality room.
The Raddison is not a honeymooners hotel!from baboo30
We stayed here for the second week of our honeymoon after spending the first week in Phuket. After staying at the 5 star Treetops Arasia Boutique Resort for a week, unfortunately the Raddison just didn't compare. This is not a honeymooners hotel and romance was hard to find here!
Check in was speedy, and our room was upgraded to a Business Suite as promised but was not what we were expecting after viewing the website and brochures. The honeymoon bonuses we were promised were not provided either. The level of English spoken by the staff was average and communication was sometimes extremely difficult which was surprising as this hotel appears to be predominantly 'business' rather than 'tourism' accomodation.
The room was on the 23rd floor (with a view of motorway) and of a reasonable size with a bathroom with bath tub and king size bed with a tv, writing desk and single lounge chair. The decor is European style and a little dated. The toiletries were not brilliant so make sure you take your own. It was a smoking room so was very smelly and didn't have a balcony or windows that opened to let in fresh air. The room was clean and the room service was great but the bed and pillows were extremely hard and by the end of our stay my husband and I both had sore necks and backs. We did get free movies on demand which were great.
The pool was lovely but be prepared for the Bangkok pollution and haze to greet you pool side. The gym was good and had regular classes and modern equipment. There was no spa or beauty salon at this hotel either so pampering was out of the question. other than a massage at the gym.
The food was sensational at the International Buffet, and the Thai restaurant on the top floor. The service was pretty good, and the food was consistently fantastic and reasonably priced for a hotel. We also had fun in 'Blackys Sports Bar' playing pool.
Being on our first trip overseas and to such a large city we did find the location a bit of a problem sometimes. After a long day of shopping or sight seeing we didn't want to spend half an hour travelling in traffic to get back to the hotel. In Phuket we were able to get around very easily and come and go from our hotel as we pleased. At the Raddison you will need to plan your time well because when you leave for the day it is too far to return until you have finished shopping or sightseeing for the day. Make sure you come home before peak hour traffic too because you may be in for a long taxi ride as we were a couple of times.
Overall this hotel was pretty good, but if we return to Bangkok I would choose a hotel that is a bit closer to shopping districts or even the River and would be happy to pay the extra money to do so.
Very Average!from A TripAdvisor Member
Good Bangkok choicefrom BigSooze
We had read about the location of the hotel on here and found it to be less of an issue than we'd expected. Yes it does take a bit of travelling to get to where you want to go - but this is true of any hotel in Bangkok, since its sights are so spread out. You do have to plan your days a bit more carefully here - it's not a hotel you can just pop back to - but the free shuttle bus will take you to the local subway station or you could get a taxi. We also walked back from the Phra Ram 9 station to the hotel -about 10 minutes or so.
We were upgraded to a business class room which was lovely, really comfortable. The swimming pool was a welcome feature too although we didn't use the health club (I'm on holiday, I don't want to go to the gym!!)
The hotel has several restaurants - we ate in the Coffee Shop (misleading name!) at the International Buffet. Again, due to their error, our travel agent was paying for our meals and although I was a bit dubious about eating at a buffet it turned out to be great. SO much choice, and really tasty food. Breakfast was also fantastic and kept you going on a day's sightseeing.
The shuttle bus takes you to the subway station every 1/2 hour or so - and each night there's a bus to Patpong at 9pm. But make sure you book it with the concierge - the bus only holds about 12 people so it doesn't take long to fill up. The Sat / Sun bus to Chatuchak weekend market is really useful.
We were flying home at 1.20am but had to check out at 12 noon - the hotel were great at keeping our luggage and allowing us to use all facilities for the rest of the day.
All in all, we were impressed with the Radisson - don't let the location put you off, Bangkok is always going to involve some logistical planning as it's not a walking city - and this is great value.
Good Value, good hotelfrom MagicianManchesterUK
Its great...and cheap!!from Wakefield_UKGeoff
It is priced cheaply because it is a bit out of the way but please dont let it put you off,the hotel runs shuttles and the taxis are really reasonable.Its about a $4 ride to the centre.
The rooms are lovely, the bar on the top floor gives you great views of the city and the food is great.It has a nice pool and gym area.
All in all,well worth it.
Very GoodHotel - Great Valuefrom sashimijazz

Top Local Tips for Bangkok
Many places to go We stayed at Bangkok for 3 days. Bangkok is the dirtiest city i' ve ever been!! Too much traffic and air pollution and next to the great hotels there were wooden houses of poor people. It was something that shocked us. I liked very much the temples, the Buddhas and of course the shopping malls!!! The Grand Palace is also something very special and you must see it! i will not forget the cruise dinner on Chao Praya River with a traditional wooden boat! Great menu and service!
Tours!!!! Don't book your tours in Australia, wait until you get to Thailand and book there, much much cheaper. Especially in Phuket.
taxi in Bangkok Be aware that taxi drivers refuse to turn on the meter when driving tourists. They would ask for 200-250 baht for a route we nomally used to pay 70 baht. Initially we didnt care but in the end we got so annoyed that we refused to go in unless they agreed to turn on the metro. Also, always make sure that you have the hotel name written in their language (ask the receptionist to do it) as most taxi drivers do not speak english and in many cases they do not understand the hotel name at all.
