Guests complain most about smell & noise in hectic, humid Bangkok

In a comprehensive analysis of almost 415,000 OTA reviews by hotel guests across 939 Bangkok hotels, the stifling heat and humidity cause the most complaints, with 70% of negative review mentions including the terms “smell” and “noise”, and 50% with negative mentions of “temperature”. Air conditioning is also a sore point for guests – even at the top-rated establishments – in a city where humidity levels frequently reach over 80%.

Ranked No.1 by Global Review Index (or GRI – learn more here), The Siam is an award-winning five-star city retreat decorated in an airy, colonial style. It also wins hands-down for service and room-quality, but The Peninsula, Hotel W and Intercontinental Bangkok beat the hotel in other areas such as “cleanliness” and “location”.
