Comment: I am a bit biased after more then a decade of being pampered by the staff of the Tarntamwan hotel on my Thailand visits. I may take for granted the tall iced drink brought to your room by a smiling staffer after 23 hours of disorienting travel. I may forget that the Tarntawan is one of very few hotels in the world that considers that a traveler with jet lag may not wnat to drag himself down to breakfast by a certain time. At the Tarntawan, you can have that breakfast 24/7. I may overlook the small but wonderful gesture of checking in and being handed business cards with your name on them from the hotel with info in Thai and English. This last year, I brought two friends for a first visit to Thailand. One of them is a hotel consultant in Las Vegas and he was very skeptical of a place called Tarntawan, but trusted me. I mention this because on a visit to Vegas last week, I watched my friend giving a lecture to middle management and staff of a major Las Vegas Strip hotel. Twice in his presentation, he mentioned a place in Bangkok called The Tarntawan. He saw me smiling from the back of the room. What he was telling his audience was that hotels are just structures and what sets them apart are the people who are entrusted to make your stay flawless and memorable. The Tarntawan is run so flawlessly that its easy to overlook the effort. It's the 'people' who, under the direction of manager Lukas, make the guests at the Tarntawan feel welcome and returning year after year, as I do. From the handsome men in crisp uniforms outside the lobby, who run out with an umbrella to keep you dry, to the infectious smile and kindness of the man who works security and sits by the elevator. The lovely and graceful woman in Thai Silk who greet you at the front desk to the silent but efficiant woman who keep the spacious and beautifully appointed rooms in top shape AND who are always ready to make you more comfortable. There is even a weekly cocktail party hosted by the manager for all the guests to get aquainted and ask questions of the staff. THAT is the TARNTAWAN. Set back from the! madness of Surawong Road on a quiet private street, it is a jewel in the crown of a country known for friendliness and hospitatily. The great 'chain' hotels of the world are in Bangkok, but to savor the true feeling of this wonderful Country....start out at the Tarnatwan. Thanks staff for years of service and I look forward to returning soon.

Comment: I had stayed at other facilities in Bangkok on past travels, until I found this place. There simply is nowhere else to stay when in Bangkok but the Tarntawan Place! In our travels it is rare to consistently see the same helpful, friendly and professional staff at a hotel year after year, as you do here. The rooms are excellent, very quiet and always clean, as is the whole hotel. Aside from the excellent breakfast, the regular menu is also worth your while. Even the drive who picks us up welcomes us home and it feels like it!

Comment: Started with bad experience from Airport as I got cheated all the way by taxi who brought me hotels which is part below hotel 81 standard in Singapore. I keep rejecting it and alomst went to Le Meredian. One of the American told me check out with Tarntawan place hotel - I cannot even prounance the name - 1st glance was impressive - the security very good - the passage way - amazing - room is exceptional. Feel like home - at least some Singapore standard. Keep it up guys for making my day. Thnx.

Comment: Having stayed twice for one week last month I was very impressed by the excellent service and the pleasant, polite and helpful staff. My special thanks also to Markus, the Assistant Manager of the house, for his useful advise and support. I am very sure to return soon and can recommend this hotel to any traveller going to Bangkok.
