From now on I will consider that any hotel that requests a booking for 2 to allow a guest to go with you in your room free of charge is not Guest Friendly.
In many case booking for 2 when you come 1 may be an hassle. Business people on expenses for instance, will probably not be able to officially book their room for 2. Some won’t even book the room themselves. Shy people will be embarrassed when the reception will ask where the second person is and they will have to answer “huh… she comes later”. Etc.
A Guest Friendly hotel is an hotel which doesn’t bother you as long as you are only 2 in a room for 2. Which kind of makes sense.
By this definition, the Imperial Queen’s Park Hotel Bangkok, a luxurious hotel on Sukhumvit soi 22, is not Guest Friendly. They will charge you 1,000 baht for an unregistered guest.
Regarding the room price, “book on the internet” is what they told me at the reception. Considering that they quoted me 5,000 baht for a standard room (cos I insisted) that you can get for less than 2,400 (without Breakfast) or lest than 2,800 (with Breakfast) on R24 or Agoda, I will advise you to follow their request and not book at the desk.
For Internet in the room (LAN), the will unashamedly charge you 700 baht per day.
Of course, this hotel comes with all the facilities you can expect from a 5 star hotel: 2 swimming pools, a fitness room, an imperial spa and… a nail studio! (Manicure and pedicure, yes sir!).
The Imperial Queen’s Park Hotel is located on Sukhumvit soi 22, next to hundreds of naughty and less naughty massage shops, 2 minutes walk from soi 22 beer bars and the infamous Titanium, and walking distance from both soi Cowboy and Sukhumvit soi 33.
