Pathumwan Princess in Siam | Bangkok Hotel

on , ,


We booked the Pathumwan Princess Hotel in Siam via What made us choose the place is the great hotel service review and its proximity to the shopping complexes and the skytrain (BTS).

From the Suvarnabhumi airport, we traveled 45mins to the hotel and was greeted by a chic and clean reception area (2nd floor). The front desk folks were warm and very helpful. It took us an extra effort to adjust to their accent, though. They knew English but it wasn't that easy to understand. Hand gestures and nods were essential to foreigners in Bangkok.

We took Pathumwan Princess' ExecuPlus Suite. It had a spacious receiving area and an adjoining bedroom. Upon entering room 1215, we were delighted to get a whiff of the room's relaxing cedar scent! The room's furniture and interior was worth the price tag.

Closkwise: receiving area single sofa & a peek at the bedroom; work desk at the receiving area; king-size bed and the entrance to the bathroom

Clockwise: entertainment goodies like TV and ipod docker/DVD player/USB player; see-through shower & bath tub; adjoining bedroom

Room service was superb we forgot how difficult it was to communicate to them that we needed a transformer for our 110V appliance. I couldn't help noticing how they respected the room's cleanliness by taking off their footwear when entering our room.

The floors we frequented at the Pathumwan Princess Hotel were:

I. Of course, the 12th floor, our room.

corridor at the 12th

II. The Lobby for the MBK shopping complex entrance (ground floor MBK), travel tours booking area, T@Lobby Cafe and the Citi Bistro for breakfast.

The lobby also had a comfortable and serene waiting area near CitiBistro. Since our flight back home was at midnight, we were able to lounge perfectly while killing time after the shopping spree on the last day of our vacation.

III. The 2nd Floor, which houses the reception (see first photo), another entrance to MBK (2nd floor MBK), and the Kayageum Korean Resto (if you love shabu shabu!)

IV. The 8th floor for a poolside breakfast at the Loop Resto, Tantara Health Spa, jacuzzi and their Olympic gym (treadmill galore!) and sports zone.

The advantages of staying at the Pathumwan Princess Hotel:
  • posh interior, excellent buffet, uber clean and updated rooms, excellent customer service
  • shopping privileges:
  1. direct connection to MBK shopping and food complex
  2. Siam Paragon Mall, Siam Discovery and Siam Tower is just an 8mins walk away
  3. Platinum Mall and Pratunam Market area is a 40-60 baht taxi ride from the hotel
  • FREE herbal tea break and head massage at the Tantara Spa
  • a complimentary cash voucher worth 5200 baht for Tantara
  • it didn't cost us to check-in early (930AM) nor check-out late (1PM)
  • ease of transport (MBK shopping mall is connected to the National Stadium BTS station)

  • front desk personnels aren't very eloquent in English
  • their suite is a little pricey (when you can spend it on shopping!)
  • city view of the rooms is blaaah 
well, Bangkok's National Stadium

I will definitely want to be back at the Pathumwan Princess! I recommend you book the ExecuPlus Suite with breakfast. For vacations on a tight budget, you might want to opt for Pathumwan Princess' Superior rooms which I believe are as posh and clean as the suites.

I will try (hard) to create a hotel picking guide for those planning to stay in Siam. There are other hotels as strategic as the Pathumwan Princess and I wouldn't want you to miss out on considering others!
