Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It's amazing how the monarchs like to be remembered. The buildings are impressive. It is also interesting how they reflect the sunlight. The grounds and buildings are in excellent shape.

    This is the former palace of King Rama the 6th that is now part of the army residence and hospital. It was built 99 years ago, about 1920. We ate lunch in the coffee shop and it is really a very nice room with a nice interior from the original period the palace was built. The wood in this room and the wood throughout the palace is really beautiful dark wood, probably teak; the architecture is wonderful if you appreciate good architecture. We took the guided tour which was only in Thai unfortunately. Out of about 30-40 people I was the only nonThai person on the tour so I don’t think many westerners know about this place, it’s really underrated as a tourist destination. The tour started at 1:30PM and lasted close to 4PM so you really get your moneys worth. The tour discussed King Rama VI, his queen, the architecture and the history of the place. Phyathai Palace was once as King Rama VI’s Bangkok palace, it was later transformed into a five-star hotel and it’s now the Royal Thai Army’s medical headquarters. The queen’s building used to be a hospital where surgeries took place at one point. There were some very interesting looking buildings, and lots of dark wood which I presume was teak. The palace was designed in the Romanesque style but there are gothic elements and some of the other buildings are in different styles. It was really very nice day and a completely unexpected good experience. If you wear shorts they’ll make you put on some long pants over them for the tour. I wish they’d sort of change this rule, there are no monks there. I’ll give it four stars, they need some English speaking guides on the tour and it would be nice if we didn’t have to wear long pants over shorts on these very hot days, after a 2 and a half hour tour I was soaked. They need to have air conditioning in the main buildings of the tour.

    I'm distraught to see many glorious mature trees being felled inside the palace.I always cherished the views of the Palace from outside,a sense of a wonderful nature oasis,a lovely area for people to stroll.Does anybody know why they are being felled?
