“A comfy bed for the night”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

We stayed at the Amari on the last night of our holiday having spent 2 weeks in Thailand travelling to multiple destinations. We were absolutely shattered and just wanted somewhere a little nicer than our previous hostels for the previous two nights as a nice boost to the end of the holiday.

Staff were very friendly and helpful upon arrival, our bags were taken up to our room very quickly and the gentleman even refused a tip! Great location just off Sukhumvit if you like the hustle and bustle of Bangkok city centre!

We didn’t sample any hotel food or room service but menu looked nice and reasonable enough, but frankly everywhere outside the hotel (and there are lots of places!) is so much cheaper we didn’t bother.

The pool is nice and located on the 6th floor, not too long but very deep at one end (2.4m) which is perfect for confident swimmers.

Room was very spacious, nice balcony (not a fantastic view but half was nice), free teas and coffees, clean bathroom with very powerful shower. We stayed on the 9th floor. We did notice that it seemed like the foyer and restaurant looked almost brand newly refurbished but once you went upstairs it was starting to look a bit dated.

I’d certainly consider staying here again, only gripe is that we asked for a King bed in the room and were presented with two separate beds pushed together, we were so tired we didn’t even mention it but that was the only thing.

We visited this hotel on our first trip to Thailand. The hotel is situated in the most-happening Sukhumvit area. Easily accessible, and lots of tuk-tuks (local taxis) waiting outside the hotel to take you anywhere. Though, they tend to charge more when they see a foreigner. Also, lots of shopping, forex agents & massage parlours as soon as you step outside the hotel. Most of the massage parlours are open late into night - an ideal way to relax before hitting the bed, after a long day!

The hotel was clean and neat, and certainly justified the pictures on its website. Due to an early flight, we reached a couple of hours before our check-inn time. We were given a room after almost an hours wait. The room and bathroom were neat clean but nothing to write home about. The swimming pool didnt look as enticing as on the website, besides being an open pool on the terrace, it wasnt as neat as expected.
The breakfast spread was very good with a lot of variety. I would certainly recommend this place to Indian vegetarian travellers, as you can find some very good and tasty vegetarian items on the breakfast menu.
Although everything was pretty decent, I feel that they could have done better if they had a better interacting staff. The staff was very impersonal and hardly of any help as most of them refused to speak in English. Its like one of those places which is used for group tour bookings.
Overall, a clean & decent hotel at a decent price in a decent location. But not a place, if you are looking for some extra attention and help!

A nice hotel - quite impressive foyer despite being situated down a narrow and quite tacky street. As everywhere in Thailand, very pleasant, polite and friendly welcome, though the room was a little disappointing, needed a bit more upkeep and maintenance, a few rusty bits and stains in the bathroom though nothing major. Pleasant-looking pool though we didn’t try it. Fantastic buffet breakfast catering for every possible taste, from oatmeal porridge to French toast and bacon and eggs to dim sum and curried rice. Just stayed the one night, overall a pleasant experience but more 3.5 star than 4 star.

Reviewed 20 March 2012

Visited in Dec 2010 as a part of a tour group of about 20 couples. We did not get off to a very good start. We arrived at 4 pm but the rooms for three couples including us were not ready. We did not get our room till 5:00 pm. Another couple got the room only at 6:00 pm. That was not really cool considering we had the freshen up and get dressed for a 6:30 pm. departure for the river cruise. This almost put a dampner on that couple's evening plans. Our group had booked well in advance and they were expecting us. Check in time for most hotels is 2 pm and we arrived at 4 pm. Wonder how difficult it is to get a room ready on time?
The negatives about the hotel end here. While we waited in the lobby for our room, we were offered some very good juice which was unique to this hotel. The staff service was very good and they were apologetic to the delay.
Room had all the modern comforts and we had a good nights sleep. Breakfast had a good variety and tasty.
Location was very convenient close to shopping and a direct skytrain link to the major malls of Bangkok.
Had there not been the problem with getting the room ready on time, would have rated this stay Excellent rather than Very Good.

I've been staying at the Amari Boulevard Hotel in Bangkok many many times over the years, most recently yesterday. I like this place and I'll still keep coming.

It is true that the rooms are a little threadbare but I still find it comfortable.

I love the location on soi 5; it is a very lively area and most of the reason why I like staying here as well.

However there are some issues that make me give the hotel a low rating.

1. Check in is inevitably very slow and has been for years now. It isn’t seasonal or time related. They are just slow.

2. The breakfast buffet is actually quite nice but you get put off your food when you see waiters wiping down tables and brushing crumbs and all to the floor. Yeeuch. And I've seen this several times.

3. Staff in general have an issue with greeting guests; usually I expect a good morning or something. It probably has something to do with the nationality of the predominant clientele of the hotel. But the only person who does greet guests properly is the guard in front of the lift door.

4. Another incident was when another guest and I were waiting for the lift. When it did come it was full including a bellboy and a waiter. I'd expect them to get off and let guests on. But they just don't have the training.

Trivial you say? True.

Here's what's really irritated me: there are always touts hanging about in front of the hotel trying to make you use their cars instead of taxis. I have consistently observed that the staff don't really get a move on and try to get a taxi. They just hang about.

My favorite is Mr. Tiger (ripping off tourists in front of the Amari for 19 years): he charges 600 baht for a trip that costs 150 baht in a meter taxi.

The guards and bellboys will consistently NOT help get taxis or even to ask the taxi drivers to turn on the meter. That struggle is your own.

Coming in with heavy shopping bags, you have to ask for assistance.

In conclusion:

Fire some managers because someone is slack and doesn't bother maintaining standards or training staff. The hotel has a very high occupancy due to its location and a few bad TA reviews won't hurt.

But if I owned the place, I'd try to fix it.

Room Tip: New wing deluxe rooms.
