"Central yet quiet" Royal Princess - Larn Luang Tip by Kiriel

Royal Princess - Larn Luang, Bangkok: 397 reviews and 1 photos

Being the only hotel in Larn Luang Road was just one of the advantages of staying at the Royal Princess Hotel. Once you said both "Lan Luang" and "Hotel" any taxi driver no matter how poor their English knew where to take you.

But there are many more reasons to give this hotel a go. Walking distance to the Golden Mount and Khao Sahn road, as well as near to a fresh fruit and vegetable market, the Royal Princess was very handy to everything, yet quiet enough that you didn't feel in the centre of a maelstrom of lights and noise.

Unique Qualities: We ate dinner at the Chinese restaurant and the Italian restaurant and enjoyed both greatly. We didnt eat at the Japanese one. Breakfast is included in the room price and was a buffet that included both some Thai dishes as well as pastries and traditional european hot breakfast choices.

Room service was prompt and of good quality, available 24 hours a day. The night owl menu dishes cost about $3 each.

The swimming pool was pleasant, though I was disappointed that it closed relatively early in the evening (8pm).

Service was excellent and all the staff were both friendly and helpful. There are hotel "limousines" which are airconditioned and clean, but a fair amount more expensive than a taxi. Definitely worth using sometimes for simplicity's sake.

The beds were unbelievably firm, with spare pillows in the cupboard. Complimentary water was replaced every day, and there was apparently complimentary shoe cleaning. The laundry service was good, and although it would have no doubt been cheaper somewhere else, was handy and quite quick.

There is a tailor, general shop and jewellers in the building as well, and a business centre and conference facilities.
