“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

Although it's on the south side of the river and not so central as some of the Sukhumvit hotel, it has a lot of charm.

The room was very nicely appointed, good view of the river and city towadrs the Rama IV bridge. the breakfast buffet is one of the best I've had and the pool area is beautiful. A nice escape from the bustle of Bangkok when you need it.

Another advantage of staying here is the restaurant River Cafe. You can normally get a table right by the river, and sit outside. The food was also very good and very reasonable especially comparing to Hong Kong prices.

They operate a complimentary river taxi service for guests to get over the river.

All in all a very good value stay.

I spent two nights on a weekend at the Peninsula Bangkok early February 2012 for around 135USD a night (booked through my agent).
This may not be a palace but is definitely 5 stars and worth the price.

The swimming pool is beautiful (and the service is really good - while the prices are 5 stars, not Thai : a friend asked for a brand of beer they had not, we chose another one and at the next round, they had found the one he wanted - either in another bar or at the convenient store next door, we did not ask). Some mosquitoes in the evening though but you cannot really blame the hotel for that...

Rooms are rather large with enough space for a desk, sofa and coffee table (plus large bathroom with bath + shower and a walk-in closet). A bowl of fruits is on the table: rather common in posh hotels in Asia but always much appreciated. I believe they all have the river view, to be confirmed by the next reviewer.

Breakfast is on the terrace along the river, a great way to start the day!

Main drawback could be the location, south of the river, however, there are shuttle boats to cross all day until midnight (when they also close the bar along the river). One of the shuttle goes to the skytrain, which is rather convenient given how awful the taxis are in Bangkok.

Overall, it is a great place to relax from the buzz of Bangkok or wherever you come from.

This is a really top Hotel. The Rooms are spacious and you will always get a river view. They are equipped with some nice things like a USB- & Card-Reader, so you can watch your Photographs directly on the TV. The Ipod-Dockinstation is connected to some nice loudspeakers even in the Bathroom.
Also the Service was quite nice. The Shuttle-Boat will take you to the Skytrain-Station or you can also ask them to stop somewhere else in the Hotel-Area.
Only Thing to complain a little bit about is the Breakfast. Not that many things to choose from, but still enough.

We really enjoyed our two nights at the Peninsula Hotel, which is one of the best hotels we have every had to pleasure of staying in. We were upgraded to a suite on the 32nd floor and the room layout and view were spectacular. The service was outstanding and the concierge proved extremely helpful in identifying good restaurants and providing local advice.

The hotel is set across the river from the main part of Bangkok, which gives it a more peaceful setting, with a great pool and spa. The Thai massages that we had at the Peninsula were world class--probably one of the best places in the world for a massage--the setting and the personnel in the spa were wonderful--a really nice way to recover from a long plane ride.

The hotel provides several boats to ferry guests across the river all day and night, so it is easy to get around and access to the Skytrain is right next to the pier across the river. We even watched some fireworks outside our window over the river one night.

The hotel's breakfast buffet is wonderful, with great fresh fruit and Asian specialties (Dim sum, soups, noodles, etc.). The Peninsula's service is also outstanding, and it truly deserves the distinction as one of the best hotels in the world.

Room Tip: Suites on higher floors are worth the higher rates
