Ramada Plaza Bangkok via Asia Travel Club
Last weekend, my husband Ryan and I had our first ever out of the country trip without the kids It has been five months since I gave birth to my second son, Austin and we have never even taken an out of the country trip without Asher, my first born who is now 4 1/2 years old. Super clingy MOMMA here!!! Raise your hand if you’re like me! HAHA 🙂
So since it was also my birthday on August 6, we decided to go to Bangkok 🙂
I met Mary from Asia Travel Club last June during the recent Bloggers United Event and she mentioned that I can exchange my reviews for a free stay in their partner hotels. I quickly signed up on their Facebook page using Facebook Messenger and then I applied for Ramada Plaza Bangkok Menam Riverside Hotel. 🙂
It’s very easy to sign up with Asia Travel Club. You just have to enter your social media accounts and stats and also the deliverables (however many postings you’ll do, like for example, 1 blog, 1 Instagram post, 1 Trip Advisor review, etc). I think is how they screen your application. It’s very easy to sign up and choose the hotel you want. So if you love you travel and are willing to do reviews and blogs/posts for their partner hotels, feel free to sign up! Who knows? You might get to stay for free in the hotel you like! 🙂
After my ATC Membership confirmation ( I got one in my email after signing up), I immediately applied for the hotel I wanted. I got approved for Ramada Plaza Bangkok Menam Riverside. I was confused at how to redeem at first but Mary from ATC helped me out. She said all I had to do was show their confirmation letter they sent in the email. Super easy, right 🙂
When we got to Bangkok, we booked our own airport transfers. The free hotel stay comes with a deluxe room and breakfast for two. You have to book your own airport/hotel transfers. 🙂 We took the train since it was the easiest for us. Our luggage had practically nothing in them so it was easy for us to hop on the trains. The hotel is located on the Chao Phraya River, so we took the free hotel shuttle boat to the hotel. It comes every 30 minutes so no need to worry about paying for a boat. 🙂
When we arrived at the hotel, the front desk officer told us we got upgraded to a Club Room which comes with Club Floor access. Club access is great because you can check in at the Club Floor – hassle-free plus you can also opt to eat your breakfast buffet there. You also have free snacks from 2-4pm and free cocktails from 6-8pm 🙂
The husband and I got a spacious room with a big bed. It was actually two double beds combined.
We would have wanted a King-sized bed para no division in the middle but the room made up for it. It was big, clean with a nice view of Chao Phraya River and the hotel’s pool. 🙂 The hotel’s pool is pretty big. It also has a bar next to it where you can relax. It’s also next to the hotel’s restaurant Terrace @ 72 (where breakfast buffet is served). There is also a gym in the hotel but we did not get to use it as our schedule was pretty hectic. 🙂
We were also upgraded to a club room with club priveledges so we could choose to have snacks from 2-4pm, cocktails from 6-8pm and breakfast at the Club Floor (15th floor) when we wanted to. 🙂
We chose the have breakfast on the Club Floor on the first and third morning there while we had breakfast downstairs at the Terrace @72 by the river on the second morning. 🙂 At the Club Floor, the breakfast spread was pretty simple but I liked it because it has all my favorites, salmon, cheese platter, fruits , salad, etc and they had their own breakfst menu where you can order anything and everything you want.
Ramada Plaza Bangkok Menam Riverside is a great hotel with good rooms, nice and clean facilities, yummy food and great service! The people are also friendly! I was able to meet several Filipinos working there so it felt like home. They were really friendly! Hello to Everyone we met!! Maria, Joy, and the rest of the team! Thanks for making our stay memorable! We hope to see you when we return to Bangkok! 🙂
