Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok
Ranked #3 of 889 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 February 2012

What is making this place so unique ... ? The Perfect Service !
At our arrival, Oriental arranged for us an Escort ( fast track service ) at Suvarnabhumi Airport : this is absolutely fantastic ! No waiting, no walking, no boring immigration files : everything is managed by 2 Oriental Agents. After a 45 min drive in a Black 7 Series BMW Limousine with Oriental discreet Logos, a very gentle Hotel Agent is bringing you directly to you room, without passing by reception desk. Regardless of your room category, every single person on you way is greeting you like a King and like a good Friend in the same time , with a large, sincere smile and thai hand respectful greeting gesture. Even the lift-boy is kind, elegant and friendly like no other in the world. Our room, on the 15th floor, was a deluxe (rather standard category) but this is more than enough : very comfortable bed, nice furnitures, very elegant bath, spacious shower. Try to start your day with yoga session : take the Hotel boat to the other side, gently stroked by the warm wind on Chao Phraya. Breakfast on the Terrace by the river is just gorgeous and you're ready for your day in Bangkok ! Ask the Hotel Butler for a ride on a long tale boat : for 50 € you will discover the city and the canals in a very original and typically thai way !
We spent only 3 days this time, but we can't wait to return to this unique place in the world, the place where the service is perfect !

The Oriental continues to excell and provide superior service and quality. Try the Thai restaurant on the opposite side of the river for a great Thai food experience. Take a pass on the Italian restaurant, it does not deliver as expected (food quality).

And for good reason. Total class. Great location. Beautiful room. Breakfast on the Terrace was a wonderful way to start the day. The spa was first rate. Just sitting in the lobby and watching the people was worth the price of admission. Very, very special place....

This is a truly great hotel. We spent 5 days here and at no time were we disappointed. The foyer, our room, drinks in the Bamboo Bar, breakfast on the Terrace and the ambience were all exceptional. We had a buffet lunch at their restaurant across the river. A seamless transfer and 5 minutes later we were seated at our table. The food was delicious.

The staff want you to enjoy you stay and are efficient without being intrusive.

The title says it all. The hotel is beautiful. The service is excellent. I sat in the lobby and ordered a drink. The beautiful tiny Asian girl dressed in a Thai silk dress, kneeled at my feet to serve the drink. The rooms are a good size, elegant and clean.
