Review Of Majestic Grande Hotel, Bangkok
In 2006, the Majestic Grande in Bangkok first opened to guests back. It is among the best business class hotels in the center of Bangkok. Yet, the rooms are quite expensive. This article explains why the Majestic Grande is worth those expensive prices.
Upon entering the doors of the Majestic Grande one can see instantly that it is a 4 star hotel, mainly catering mainly to the business crowd. However you will find plenty of leisure travelers staying here as well. Since it’s close to a red light district it has become a popular guest friendly hotel, which means anyone staying at the Majestic can bring an unregistered guest back to their room without a paying a fee.
There are 6 room types at the Majestic, 3 of them are suite style luxury accommodations. The Superior rooms are 28 sqm. in size and cost 3350 THB (at time of writing) including a free breakfast. It’s actually a decent sized room but because of the larger than usual King sized beds the room feels a bit cramped. Matter of fact everything in the room is quiet large like the 29″ flat screen televisions. Bathrooms are nice in size too. All in all the superior rooms are very comfortable with modern furniture and a nifty one touch room control system next to the bed.
If you can afford to spend more then it’s worth it to book a deluxe or premier room types. And if money is no objective than it’s absolutely a must to spend your cash on any of the suites there.
Yes it’s pricey and there are many budget hotels near the Majestic Grande. However, if money is not a problem for you or you just want to indulge yourself for a few days than the Majestic is worth every penny. There is a small pool, and I mean small but it’s good enough for a soaking during an often hot Bangkok afternoon. There is also a tiny fitness center with modern equipment. If you get a room rate with free breakfast then you’re in luck because the selection is enough to keep you full late into the afternoon.
Also since Majestic Grande is near the popular red light district of Nana they are a guest friendly hotel. So you won’t be charged a fee for taking an unregistered guest back to your room.
Majestic Grande is located in central Bangkok on Sukhumvit Soi 2. It’s a quiet lane but there is a small mall with international restaurants, fast food like McDonald’s and sandwich shops nearby. But probably the biggest reason why most would stay here is because it’s super close to Nana Entertainment Plaza, a small 3 floor building filled with go go bars. The BTS Sky Train is not far either, just a 10 minute walk on Sukhumvit road.
The Majestic Grande is an excellent business hotel with the capability to serve all your business needs. Leisure travelers will also enjoy their quality and hospitality as well. Even though the Majestic is near a red light district, it’s still a good choice for families, since you don’t have to pass any sights of drunken men trying to pick up prostitutes.
