Oriental Residence is located on Wireless Road right next to the US embassy. For central Bangkok, the location is a little out of the way, but Sukhumvit and Ploenchit with their plethora of shopping malls, restaurants and entertainment are just a few minutes taxi ride away.
We had booked a one bedroom corner suite. We like the large bathroom and the comfy bed and sofa. However, the Wifi wasn't working in our room.
Dining options on the premises are limited, with one restaurant offering French fare on the ground floor and a the fine dining Savelberg restaurant in the annex. Some food/snacks are available at the pool bar on the 5th floor. Quality of the food was ok, the breakfast spread was a bit thin and odd (spicy red duck curry for breakfast anyone?).
Anyways, with so much great food options available all over Bangkok, we ate all meals except breakfast outside the hotel.
Staff was very helpful and friendly throughout.
All in all we had a pleasant stay but on balance we thought that Oriental Residence is more of a long-stay accommodation and not the best choice for a weekend stay. More
