“What a wonderful place. Bangkok was supposed to be a place where we adjusted to the time difference in Thailand – but actually loved our experience here – and much of it is thanks to our expereience at the Chakrabongse Villas. Now don’t get me wrong – I gave it 5 stars because I can’t give 4.5 – but this really is a lovely property and so close to many of the important sites here in the city.
Our experience here in Bangkok got off on the wrong foot – but the Villas made it right almost instantly. Our prearranged driver was a no-show at the airport – apparently due to an accident. When we called the hotel, they had a new driver to pick us up within 15 minutes. Upon our arrival at the hotel, our room was ready – and that at around 8 in the morning on a Sunday. We deeply appreciated being able to check in and shower.
The room was quite lovely. On the second floor overlooking a beautiful fountain and tropical garden. THe large king size bed was remarkably comfortable and the room was very well appointed and spacious. Huge bathroom and shower. The room also had a large balcony with a queen size bed, a table and chairs as well as 2 loungers. We used all of this during our three day stay.
We also enjoyed the INCREDIBLE food here. Breakfasts were delicious – but the dinners were out of this world. Wonderful Thai cuisine overlooking the river and the some of the beautiful temples here in Bangkok.
The remarkably courteous staff took great care of us. Whether it was arranging fantastic tours of the temples and palaces or going to the floating market. All was done with remarkable ease and courtesy.
I would highly recommend this wonderful property. It truly is an oasis in the heart of the city. It was a great opening to our 2 week Thailand experience.”
