Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Comfort at a great price
I have stayed in all classes of hotels and i found the Holiday Inn Express to be a real value for money, especially in Bangkok where you will be spending more time out and about than in the hotel. Not everyone needs a conference room, state of the art gym, swimming pool, bar, restaurant etc when what you really need is a short distance outside and all the food you ever want is 5 minutes away. Just think twice before frequenting the restaurant on the ground floor, it is very pricey, slow and the food is not that good, go across the road instead.
The hotel staff is very courteous and helpful. Housekeeping is very efficient and helpful when I needed an extra towel or request housekeeping not to be disturb me until the afternoon. The breakfast is adequate for people on the go, note: it is designed for people who are on the go - get a a full nourishing breakfast then out the door for that shopping spree or business meeting.
On my next trip I will stay there again as it is right next to National Stadium BTS (yes you can go have a run in the stadium if you dare), MBK is across the road and Siam Discovery, Centre and Paragon is all within 500 metres walking distance. One tip regarding taxis is to use MBK as a reference point because the hotel is new and everybody in Bangkok should know where MBK is.
Overall the hotel is very clean and new. The design and colour/decor is comfortable.Staff is helpful. As long as the hotel maintains its excellent standards this will be my default place of stay in Bangkok.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessTravellerSG Staff looks restless
Staff do not greet customer. I am a Platinum Elite and they took 10mins to check me in. Prior preparation was not done and staff look restless (all 3 of them) and do not give a smile in Land of smiles. Location is good and rooms are clean. It's getting very crowded these days at the lobby with lots of tourist.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jay2554 Slipped a bit...
This has been technically my third stay; although Ive basically been here since the beginning of January until the end of this month (March)
One thing that concerns me a great deal is its my impression that this property doesnt want to focus on long stay guests rather focusing on large amounts of short stay tour groups...
For the most part, aside from the location, highlights have been the security guards downstairs (who often double as no-frills bellmen) and the housekeeping supervisors who do a fantastic job of making sure everything is clean and fresh...
My rather muted review this time is probably due to the fact that my GF and i are probably the only ones who would stay in a small room for three months and now we are realizing its time for a permanent solution...
My only other concern was the PCR bonus system which took everyone a while to figure out (NOT the hotels fault)...
All in all i want to thank Sue, Dan, Gig, Pang, Mark and Kevin for everything over the last 3 months....And i want to thank Mandy for sorting out the PCR issues...
Wish these guys all the best (ill be back to visit)....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by myunonn very convenience location
Near by BST station but they have only the up escalator(common for all stations in BKK i guess) and bit tough with heavy suit case.
just a few minutes to MBK and walking distance to Siam as well.
staff are always smiling and very nice but front desk is always crowded. i recommend with some spare time when the check out.
free wifi was very good speed and satisfied. they provide a pass code and i told then that i have iphone+ipad then gave me 2 pass code ticket everyday.
hotel facility (incl. gym) and amenity are basic but good enough.
and i like a take a way cup for the coffee during the breakfast time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ausmick great location, great price, great service,
found hotel on random search,was impressed that g m responds to posts left on trip advisor, had never been to bangkok before,price was major influence when making booking,when i arrived and realised how close to skytrain,mbk and other malls were, and then walked into foyer,i knew i had made the right choice.
reception staff were quick & efficient with moddy's smile & sense of humor making check-in more pleasureable
room was spotless,i felt like the first guest to stay in that room,
THE PILLOWS ARE LIKE CLOUDS, what more can isay, the most amazing pillow i have ever slept on,
i was just looking for somewhere affordable with breakfast, whilst on that side of town for 2 nights whilst in town,holiday inn express surpassed all my expectations and delivers above their star rating,
will definitly be a returning guest when in bangkok & also checking out other accomodation through the holiday inn group

Surprisingly comfortable room with lots of amenties. The only drawback is automatic laundry - you.d better replace it with standard home washmachine and provide detergent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 This is what service is all about!
I loved the hotel and it was recommended to me by a Thai colleague who said that hotel was new and offered a competitive rate that was within my budget.
I was impressed from the moment I got to the hotel.
The check-in counter was buzzing and they checked me into the hotel in less than 5 minutes.
The staff are friendly and extremely efficient and also speak excellent English.
Though it is self-service at breakfast the staff are attentive and work efficiently to clear the tables and replenish food.
The rooms are spacious, clean and tastefully furnished.
I will definitely recommend the hotel to anybody traveling to Bangkok on business or for a holiday as it is very central to the malls, good restaurants, skytrain and is right next door to a foot rub place.
I will keep going back to the hotel when in Bangkok as the service is absolutely brilliant and the staff are dedicated and committed to their work!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by grappelli best HI Express
As long as you understand "express " meaning, this is a nice place to stay. BTS station is very close, but the location is bad for car access.Very heavy trafic around the hotel. For backpackers, this hotel might be okay, but for business it's not recommended. If you tell hotel name, your customer will look down you. Lobby is unbelievably small. Allways clouded with Chinese group. No place to sit or stand. Room is big. No buthtub. Wifi is not fast, youtube always stop, but acceptable. Daytime is easy for shopping, nighttime is difficult to buy beer and snacks. No convenient shop around the hotel. When you check in, tell front staff "Quiet room please " then you might get backside room, it is not noisy. Breakfast restaurant is not clouded if you go around 6:30am. Prepared foods are very good, wide variety though no fresh vegetable. I am wondering why some mentioned poor variety. Room rate is not expensive, but not cheap. These are my impression of 5 nights stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jay2519 Good to be back...
As we start our third month at this hotel, the staff have done their best to make us feel like family; they even went out of their way to give us our previous room back...
We are happy with what this hotel provides, but ever so often, I see customers who demand way too much from the employees...This hotel is the Express concept...No frills..Minimalistic breakfast offerings, but customers will save money and still have a comfortable experience...
Thank you again to Sue, Dan, Pang. Kevin, Mark and the rest of the staff...U guys are truly family...Thank you...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BMWrdr Perfect hotel for traveler
Booked this hotel for 1 night stay in Bangkok. It was easy to find, new, and very secure and comfortable. Our room on the 21st floor afforded us a great view, and was quiet. The only issue was walking into and out of the bathroom. There is a small step that isn't obvious and presents a trip hazard. The shower is large but there is another hazard with the kind if tile used for the shower floor, namely a very slick surface so do be careful. The adjoining restaurant is really nice. The food was delightful and the atmosphere was pleasant and quiet. The staff couldn't have been nicer. The wifi was fast and free. Great place to stay!

The room is very new and comfortable, with free-wifi in room. We stayed on the 19th floor with nice view of Bangkok.
Very convenient location, 1 minute walk to National Stadium BTS station and 5 minutes walk to MBK.
There's not much choice with the breakfast but I am staisfied with the quality.
Will come back and recommend to friends!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Twydeutschland Great Location and Great Stay
I have been assigned a high-floor room due to my Platinum status and I was told the room is larger than normal ones.
It is indeed very spacious inside by HIX standard. The hotel itself has a perfect location with just 3 minutes by walking from national stadium stations. There are plenty of atttractions nearby to be explored.
Also I found the breakfast(on the 7th floor) was quite good compared with other HIX I have been to in terms of both variety and quality.

Hotel in great location for shopping and is close to Skytrain for easy access to all of Bangkok. My first experience staying at Express category and will probably not do it again - missed the Porters, Room Service, bathroom toiletries etc , and other facilities however understand hotel tariff dictates this. Reception staff need further customer service training as some lacked experience in this field. Room large and very comfortable and complimentary breakfast a plus however very crowded each morning and lacked attention to detail with food replenishment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cwcheeze Good proximity to siam and a pleasant hotel
This was my 2nd time staying at this hotel and my 1st time to write a review. Gave up the chance to write the other time as i felt it was just a standard hotel . However, i think i should not discredit this hotel and write a proper review for them.
I would say Holiday Day Inn Express BKK siam has delivered the services as promised. Good and comfortable bed, with a nice interior decor of blue and black theme. There will be 2 types of pillow to choose from in the room, the soft and the firm pillow. Breakfast is serve on the 7th floor and starts from 6am to 1030pm, which i believe it is quite a good range of timing for their hotel guest. Security is not an issue, as the lift only operates with the guest room card keys. The lift will only allow the guest to go to their room level and 7th floor for breakfast. Room service is ok as per standard. They will only issue you new towels if you place your soiled ones on the floor of the toilet and change your bed sheets if you had place the card to request for new bedsheets. No toiletries is provided unless you request from them at the reception. However, some basic multi-purpose soap is provided in the bathroom. If you are worried about theft by the house keepers, there is a electronic safe box in the room too.
Now for the things which i think might need improvement or cons;
1. Breakfast variety needs a little improvement. No doubt there are a lot of food choices, but anybody staying for more than 3 nights is going to have the same breakfast choices. But still, i am happy with the breakfast.
2. Noise from BTS train. The noise coming from the BTS can be quite a nuisance if you are a early sleeper while the train services are still running. Perhaps the hotel could consider sound proofing double glass window panes for rooms close to BTS?
3. Staff attitude. Generally staffs are ok, but when they get busy, their attitude changes drastically especially during checking-out timings. They need to be trained to work under stress. My call from my room to ask for help regarding a lamp that came loose was not attended to at all. I made the call the 2nd time after 15 mins and nobody came up to take a look. Later that day, i went out of the hotel and told the reception about the lamp, a staff noted down the incident. However, when i return to my room that night, the lamp is still loose. No follow-ups or explanation were made.
I believe i have written a fair and non-biased review about this hotel . Overall the hotel stay was still a pleasant one and it is still value for money. Thank you Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mehran Small Lobby, short in staff
Clean and modern but it shorts from Holiday Inn standard in providing service!
Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam has a very small lobby, small reception, only two people both at my check in and check out were available and a long line up!! everyone was almost knew what the other guest was billed for as the area was small ...
Staff were very young and not well trained how to speak with guests.
They had no clue what a holiday Inn membership means. kind of aggressive to the guests that I did not see any reason other than they were overwhelmed with many guests and small area.
such a new and nice building with a good staff and a larger lobby and reception can make a lot whole different.
over all I avoid staying here unless I have no other option.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jay2554 Thank you for making this a home away from home
As I prepare to depart in 3 weeks, after 2 months at this hotel, I can truly say it has been an overall great experience; The staff are like family and I will truly miss being so close to transit, laundromat 5 minute walk away and a 7-11 only a 4 minute walk away; however the 7-11 is undergoing renovations and will be closed until March. National Statium BTS Station, where the hotel is located is about a 10 minute walk from Siam BTS...The centre of the BTS network.
Thank you to Sue and her staff for truly making this a wonderful place to call "home" for an extended stay...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by funguy238 Nice friendly staff
Checking in at the hotel, staffs is very friendly and helpful, room is comfortable and clean, only thing I did not like about the room is the room temperature, because the time I stay at the hotel is consider as winter season in Taiwan, and the out door temperature is 15c to 18 c, I tried to set the room temperature at 23c to be more comfortable, but some how it does not help at all. I was thinking maybe the hotel room is not equip or set up for the winter temperature. other than that , everything is excellent.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chyneez Non smoking room reeked of smoke
Booked two rooms on non-smoking floor. Upon entering, one of the room reeked of smoke (room no: 1415). Made a complain and housekeeping attempted to disguise smell by spraying freshener on carpet and curtain, which made the smell even more intolerable. Requested for a change but request declined citing full occupancy. Being a Gold member means little in Express context.
Other than that, everything was okay. Location was ideal, breakfast simple yet sufficient and the amenities are satisfactory.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Richtravels Below Average for HI Express Standard
I am a Platinum member and have enjoyed most HI Express'
Not this one and heres why:
1. Dismissive greeting upon arrival. (Thailand is the Land of Smiles and friendly hotel service). Not even a welcome but a dismissive staff snapping orders for passports.
2. Below average breakfast with too many guests and items running out.
3. Phone call at 11:45am (before Noon check out) chasing me out of room. This was the tipping point for me. Really? Calling before check out to find our when you are getting out.
4. No "How was your stay" or "Thank you at check out."

Good Value for Money stay - don't expect spectacular
Best is the good location - near to BTS station.

Better skip that and enjoy good Thai food

Holiday Inn Express have got it right. Excellent value for money. Basic requirements for a hotel stay are there and you shouldn't expect the "add ons" and "extras" for these prices. From check in to check out was a great experience and the breakfast buffet surprisingly good. And the locations is faultless. Well done!!
