Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok
Ranked #2 of 896 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 September 2012

My brothers and I spent four days at the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok recently. This was our third stay at the hotel and the best yet. The hotel's reputation preceeds it, and we were not disappointed yet again.

First and foremost, the staff is welcoming and genuinely helpful. Everyone from the desk staff to the dining, room service, cleaning, and front door staff proved pleasant. The food is spectacular, and the room service prices are quite reasonable for a high-end product. While sitting poolside, we were presented with plenty of water as well as gourmet fruit snacks that helped keep us cool. If you're a night owl, don't miss the late-night fish feeding down by the river.

There is a very helpful boat service to take you across the river to the hotel's fitness center and other restaurants. While we did not attend, there are also traditional Thai dance performances located here. Additional boat routes take you to a shopping mall and to the BTS station. This proved helpful as traffic can make taxi rides in Bangkok a trial in patience (tip: never get into a cab in this city without ensuring the meter is turned on. A small number of unsrucpulous drivers will try to take advantage of you).

The fitness center was, perhaps, a little under-sized given the large proprty. But still, the staff was pleasant and at-the-ready for guest requests. I went on a six-mile run on a treadmill, and the equipment was new and in good condition. The steam room and sauna facilities in the locker room are a bonus. They could turn up the temperature for the whirlpool in the same locker room, though.

There was some construction on the dining terrace, but to the hotel's credit, we never heard any of it. The secondary pool was closed for some reason, but it looked very pleasant.

We have stayed at other comparable hotels in the city. The memories of this and past stays have confirmed to us that we would stay at no other property for our next visit to in Bangkok. I highly recommend the hotel for it's service, it's luxurious facilities, and incomparable food. Oh, and the jazz in the famous Bamboo bar is a must listen...

Room Tip: A view of the river is entertaining, but because of the entertainment cruises that go up and down, e...

It is my favourite hotel in Bangkok by far. Rooms are spotless, very confortable and service all around the hotel just shine with excellence. The Normandie restaurant always welcome michelin star chefs and the food there is one of the best you can get in the region. The Lord's Jim restaurant is a real sensational place for brunching, pletore choices from dim sup to foie gras and lobster.... don't go if you are on diet. The restaurant along the chaopraya where you take your breakfast in the morning is unique in Bangkok... Apart from all the noise and houha of Bangkok... I will come back !

This has to go down as one of the best, if not the best hotel experience in the world!

Everything is fundamentally due to the professional and very welcoming staff - nothing is too much bother and they are always willing to go the extra mile.

I highly recommend opting for the 'Arrive in style' optional add on, which means you are greeted immediately as you step off the plane and whizzed through the airport by buggy and through the diplomat channel in immigration. Then if you add on the limousine transfer your driver collects you from outside the airport. Upon arrival at the hotel you are taken straight to your room and 'checked-in' there. It was a fantastic start of our Mandarin Oriental experience, worth every penny and certainly takes the hassle away which is great after a long flight!

I can't speak highly enough of this hotel and it's staff, I'll be back!!

Room Tip: Definitely the higher floors are preferable, but to be honest they don't have such a thing as a...

After 8 years again there. As great as always you just feel welcome and taken care. Location great and the pick up service from the airport including VIP treatment at immigration is the money worth. I would not go to any other hotel

Room Tip: High up front facing the river

The Mandarin Oriental Bangkok is like travelling back in time to the Agatha Christie era of old world charm and service. Indeed afternoon tea is a specialty of this fine 5 star hotel served in the aptly named Authors Lounge.Built on both sides of the Chao Phraya river the hotel provides a free regular boat ferry to its luxurious health spa and gym and restaraunts on the far side of the river.These boats are like old Chinese junkets and are lit up at night giving a fairy tail feel to the whole experience.Be sure to bring your camera. Extremely polite and helpful staff many of whom are dressed in traditional Thai costume,open doors,call taxis,carry bags to your room and generally make you feel very special during your stay.Concierge and desk staff remember your name and anticipate your request for your room key having it ready before you reach the desk.But behind all of this traditional values ethos the hotel glides quietly through it's daily buisness on the ultra modern technology of the best Las Vegas hotels. High speed lifts take up to the top of its 15 floors in seconds. Wi Fi and in room internet and multi channell flat screen tv along with air conditioning and a business centre make up many of the essential modern world requirements.Huge windows give you a panaramic view of the river and Bangkok depending on where your room is.Clean room and do not disturb signs are also switch operated from your room turning on the relevent light on the wall outside.Breakfast is served al fresco in the Verandah over looking the river and the numerous restaurants serve french,italian pizza, Chinese,Asian and European dishes to suit every palate.The traditional Thai meal and dance show in the Sala Rim Naam is a must see. No one does massage like Thailand and the Mandarin's health spa is the best you will find. A fully equipped Gym will help you burn off the world class cuisine.A string ensemble plays in the Foyer in the evenings. Management are always at hand to deal with any issues or questions you may have. As a honeymoon destination it is peerless.Bangkok can be a culture shock for first time visitors but the Mandarin Oriental will be your oasis to return to so you can recharge your batteries before you tackle Bangkok's famous night life.During my stay members of the Thai Royal family arrived one evening, a testament to the status of this fine hotel.
