A sweltering early April morning found us arriving at the MO to a serene welcome which was only cool because of the very welcome air conditioning. We were surprised and delighted to find that we'd been upgraded to a suite on arrival and to be honest, things just went from better to ... more better :) So, room was lovely,...

The place is surreal! Photos of all the great writers in the world, many of whom stayed at the Oriental themselves (Joseph Conrad)! You will have a choice of great world teas, great cakes, and hours to just relax and write or draw or muse. It is expensive, but the splurge is worth it!

Without adding histrionics or exaggeration this hotel exemplifies class with classic style, beautiful rooms and the ability to make one feel a slice of royalty and how they live. Particularly impressed with the strong culture of the brand and vote which resonates throughout their staff and attitude to guests which filters through I to first class service. A must stay...

If you are visiting Bangkok you have to stay here. The old original building is fascinating to walk around and the lounge serves the most amazing cream tea. The staff are fantastic and the rooms are great with your own butler. We had a river view which was wonderful as you got to see Bangkok's river life at day and...

After many years as a firm Shangri La supporter, I decided to try the Mandarin Oriental a few doors down on the Chao Praya River in Bangkok. One slightly disappointing stay at the Shangri La prompted our decision for a change - we had high expectations, especially given the hotel prices. Overall the hotel is nice, it feels small, with...

If there was one 6* hotel in the World, this would be it. The hotel is old but extremely well maintained, and sits on a riverside lot that requires taking a Hotel owned ferry to the spa, gym and Thai restaurant. The impeccable service with a smile and pleasant comment is never ending. The Spa was rated #1 in the...

My husband and I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental for 3 nights in February and had a fabulou time! The location of the hotel is perfect; I loved being on the River. The rooms are pricy but we preferred it to the Peninsula (which we stayed in later in the trip). One day we had a couples Thai massage which...

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
