Slept at Amari Watergate Hotel

Home - Travel stories - Bangkok - Slept at Amari Watergate Hotel

847 Thanon Petchburi, Bangkok, 02-2653 9000, http://www.amari.com/watergate/

This is a large hotel, part of the Amari hotel group. The hotel has 34 floors with over 500 rooms. It is located in a busy part of Bangkok, near the Pratunam market, and close to major department stores such as Central World and Siam Paragon.

The rooms are spacious and very clean, all with good air conditioning and a minibar. On the floor clean carpet. There are rooms with two single beds and with a double bed. Further facilities include a dressing table, wardrobe, sofa and a few chairs.

The bathroom is spacious and equipped with modern plumbing, shower and of course hot and cold water.

The breakfast was not included in the price and costed € 25 per person. The breakfast buffet is very extensive, European and American, but also Thai and Chinese.

We did not use many of the facilities of the hotel, only the breakfast room and the (guarded) parking. In front of the hotel, half underground, is Henry J. Bean's Bar and Grill, where you can enjoy a quiet drink.

The staff is friendly and helpful. The people behind the reception desk speak good English. We arrived at 8 o'clock in the morning, checking in and straight to the room was not a problem.

We have been there once in January 2007. Reason to go to this hotel was to get our son in law and granddaughter a bit accustomed to Bangkok.

The price we do not know, but it was more than € 100 per night for a deluxe room.


When we write about a place, we write about what we saw and did there, and what we think about it; no more and no less.
This is not a travelguide (we are not complete), and it is neither an advice to visit or not to visit a place. Other sites can give you that information.
Our opinion about a hotel or restaurant is not ment to be a (positive or negative) review, you can find that information on other sites.
It is our description of a situation on a certain moment, influenced by our mood.
