I have recently returned from my 35th trip to Thailand and a short stay planned at the Tarntawan Place Hotel turned into five weeks. Of all the hotels I have stayed in during 47 years of worldwide travel I have never stayed at a hotel as splendid in every respect as the Tarntawan Place Hotel. Everything is perfect: the decor in the common areas, court yard and rooms is extremely elegant - the hotel is festooned with beautiful fresh flowers daily and all of the staff always give me such a very warm welcome. The hotel is beautifully quiet and all the extras are designed to make the guests' stay as comfortable as possible - such as free internet access, a 24 hour breakfast service from a very comprehensive menu, no joiner fees and an incomparable atmosphere of welcome, comfort, splendour and charm. Mr Lukas Halberstaat the polyglot proprietor & manager is the personification of the perfect host: witty and charming he always has time for his guests. Additionally Mr Sombat Chomchiey, Resident Manager (along with Mr Lukas) will always go out of his way to assist guests with any help they may require (he sorted out airline tickets for me on more than one occasion) and management and staff alike have perfected a level of service which is unequalled. Last but by no means least the Tarntawan is 100% gay friendly and extremely well situated for the gay traveller. All guests staying at this wonderful hotel benefit from a first class system of security. I will never stay anywhere else when in Bangkok and consider this beautiful hotel to be my home in Thailand.

Dear Lukas and team
Thank you so much for your great (no better; amazing and sophisticated) hospitality. I can't think of one stay anywhere on the globe, where I have felt so very much welcome like at your place. The (************)Tarntawan is surely the best place to stay in Bangkok, and I will be back as many times as my schedule will allow it.
I am looking forward of seeing you again.
Thank you all

With best regards

To the management/owners and all the staff at Tarntawan Place hotel.

I returned back to the UK yesterday after my two stays at your hotel this month (September 2011).4/5 days each time with a 10 day break to travel.
I have visited Thailand over 50 times in the last twenty years and have stayed at many hotels in Bangkok/Pattaya/Chiang Mai/Phuket.
Tarntawan Place Hotel has something I have never encountered before in any hotel...perfection! The staff there are superb, the security excellent, rooms very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The service is unrivalled. I suspect staff training there has been to the highest level and your staff selection spot on. From the minute I arrived there and the staff ran to greet me I realised I had found a gem.
I learnt about this hotel from my brother who also has a Tarntawan apartment nearby which is of equal high standard.
Never have I felt so welcome and comfortable in a hotel. Usually I can find faults in a hotel but I couldn’t find any there.
So to the reception staff, cleaner, barman, restaurant staff, security man at the lift and everyone who makes that hotel so good.
Thank you

Dear Lukas and Tarntawan Place,

I wanted to thank you for the warm hospitality of your staff and the wonderful room on my recent stay at Tarntawan Place.

From the arrival lemon fruit drink delivered to me on my arrival, to the daily plate of grapes that was brought up and placed in my room, it was quite impressive and made me feel so welcomed and right at home.

I am writing my Trip Advisor review right now, and it will post by tomorrow.

Thank you again for the warm hospitality and I look forward to staying with Tarntawan for an extended stay next time I arrive in Bangkok.

EAST OR WEST......TARNTAWAN IS THE BEST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

Dear Lukas/ sombat,

Thank you again for a wonderful stay at the TARNTAWAN. I just cannot say enough about the service. The rain was beautiful but the bell desk taking care of guests by providing umbrellas takes the cake. I really enjoyed myself. The weather was amazing, especially compared to Dubai where it is still hot and humid.

No doubt ,Tarntawan is the best place to stay in Bangkok. Please say hai from me to all the front desk staff, security, house keeping, bell desk etc. i miss them all.

Thank you and looking forward to my next trip there in November.
