A new location for the longstanding and popular Queen’s Garden near Suvarnabhumi airport, the Great Residence has the same owners, a similar set-up and many of the same friendly staff, but a new name. (The old Queen’s Garden is, at time of writing, undergoing a makeover.)

Great Residence

The Great Residence.

Their new location is closer to the airport than before, being right next to the airport bus station, which is five kilometres or a 10-minute drive from the terminus building. We’re guessing the new hotel is actually converted condos, consisting of three small four-storey blocks with a tacked-on restaurant and a welcome swimming pool area.

...and the pool.

… and the pool.

Rooms have been agreeably done up and come with cable TV, minibar, free WiFi, en suite bathrooms and small balconies; they’re available in deluxe or standard formats — each have similar decor and facilities but the deluxe rooms are larger.

Spanking new!

Spanking new!

The restaurant serves Thai food with a few basic Western options — it’s a bit on the over-priced side and the Western dishes in particular aren’t brilliant but it is very convenient and opens until midnight for those arriving peckish on late flights. It opens at 06:00 and your room comes with breakfast included.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner or just drinks

Functional and does the job.

They have a full bar and some good deal happy hour cocktails and there’s a pleasant outdoor, canal-side sitting area. If you exit the car-park and turn left though, you’ll find some cheaper local eateries a short walk along the main street.

In addition Great Residence has its own massage parlour so you can de-stress after a long flight, exchange facilities and ticketing and tour services, though of course their primary facility is the 24-hour airport pick-up and transfer service, which is included in the price of your room.

Simply indicate your flight details when booking and upon arrival exit by gate or door 4 on the arrivals level. You’ll see the pick up spot for minibuses arriving from various hotels, including Great Residence. They do claim to have reps on 24-hour standby at the airport but if you don’t immediately see either rep or minibus, it’s just a case of waiting at the pick-up point until a bus marked Great Residence comes along.

In the other direction you simply indicate your flight when you check-in and staff will suggest which minibus you should take to the airport. They generally leave on the hour, every hour.

Concrete flamingos - just what you need after a long flight

Concrete flamingos — just what you need after a long flight.

The service is particularly useful if you have an early departure, late arrival or overnight stop between flight connections. All things considered, prices are a very good deal, too.
