I can imagine this hotel once used to be grand and royale. But right now, it badly needed a good renovation to give it a breath of fresh air. Don't expect too much out of their services and facilities. The only advantage this hotel has is its location. Khao San, Grand Palace, Wat Pho, the riverside market and jetty is...

We thought this was a good deal for the price. I could understand people's unhappiness if you got a crappy room but maybe we just got lucky the two times we have stayed here. The 2nd time we got a big room, room 135, the first time we were on the 3rd floor and it was a normal size room....

Al lot of reviews I read before going on my trip to Thailand and before I ever set foot in Hotel Royal, were about the faded glory of the royal hotel and about staff who were rude and unwelcoming to the guests. I went anyway and found it to be the perfect hotel for sightseeing and to get a tast...

After reading several reviews which described the Royal as basic but clean and old but charming, I decided for the inexpensive price and favorable location that it would be a good value. Unfortunately, my experience with this hotel was far from royal. The front desk staff was unusually cold, the room was small, dark and dingy and the breakfast was...

For a hotel in it's price range (we paid $21usd/night in 2002), it's hard to beat the location and comfort of the Royal Hotel. Don't get me wrong, upscale travelers will find better bang for the buck elsewhere, but if you are a budget traveler, or a backpacker, who doesn't want to be part of the "scene" on Khao San...

Stayed here with husband and 2 children. They provided us with adjacent rooms, with comfortable beds, good air conditioning, balconies overlooking the amazing traffic systems, spotlessly clean bathrooms, and televisions in each room. Breakfast buffet covered every taste. Bed and breakfast for the 4 of us for 3 nights cost just £80 (UK pounds). Couldn't hope for better value, especially...

The streets of Bangkok are more like a parking lot. Why would you want to spend all your vacation in a taxi? The week I stayed at the Royal hotel, I either walked or took the river or canal boats. The Royal is across the street from the Royal Palace and the main boat pier Ta Chang. The breakfast buffet...

We stayed here our first night. The hotel staff were helpful, the rooms were clean and of a good size and the location is great - about 10 minutes walk from Khao San Road. I only stayed in hostels in bangkok apart from this one night, and i thought for the price it was pretty good. Nothing overly exciting about...

The Royal hotel is definitely in a state of faded glory...its heyday has passed...however, its perfect location and AMAZING breakfast buffet is well worth the $25 US dollars we paid to stay here. It is close to the Grand Palace area and Khao San Rd.

The Royal has excellent location if you are just stopping a couple of days to see your tailor or go to the Royal Palace. The rooms are old and tired in the origianal wing so be sure to ask for something in the new wing. A reasonable swimming pool that was much needed after doing the sights. It is a...

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
