nice rooms and quite big swimmingpool
.

Bangkok City Suite (2006: *)
Low class hotel, durty rooms with very poor service. Much noise in the night due to the highway only 10 meters from the hotel and a broken window. I do not recommend this hotel. You can find better for the same price or for a little bit more ( for instance 'The Royal Hotel')

High class hotel and apartments, good food and service, very good location to visit the city and shopping centers, good price/quality. Rooms a little bit dated.

Baiyoke Suite (2002: **)
     
Medium class hotel, not really clean, good breakfast at the top floor with a nice view over the city, with calm weather you can even eat your breakfast outside. Very big rooms (suites) but the small kitchen does not work, this hotel needs a major makeover.

Sirida Place (2001: *)
Clean hotel, very bad breakfast which is not included in the price. At the end of my stay they charged my family an extra day and they
knew it was allready paid; bad price/quality. I do NOT recommend this hotel.

Sena Place (2000: **)

Medium to low class hotel. Good price/quality. Service and food is ok. If you don't expect to much this is a good hotel.

Vientai Hotel (2004: *)
Booked for 3 night but after one night we moved to the 'Hotel Royal'. I could not stand strait in the shower, the rooms are very old. In august 2004 big renovation in the Lobby.Not my kind of hotel.

Royal Hotel (2004: **+)     
Big City hotel with a history. In 1992 people died in the lobby during a pro-democracy rally.

The grand palace and Wat Po are only a 5 minutes walk away.
Good Price/quality. We can recommend this hotel.

Very clean hotel with a perfect location to the major attractions. Walking distance to the Grand Palace and Kao San Road. Friendly staff, Breakfast was simple. Big very clean rooms with a very good bed.
We recommend this hotel for its location and comfortable room.

Siam Mandarina Hotel (2022:***)
I used this hotel because it was close to the airport and I had to do 1 day quarantaine during the covid pandemic. The Hotel is much older than on their website. The food was really not good.
The information that the hotel gave me concerning the covid paperwork was misleading and incorrect.
Can can not recommend this hotel.

Yantarasri Resort (2012: ***)   

This hotel has a good location outside the city. You need a car or tuk tuk to bring you to Chiang Mai.
