“Terrific three night stay”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

My partner and I stayed at the Peninsula for three nights ahead of a ten day break on Koh Samui. Situated on the west bank of the Chao Phraya river that runs through Bangkok, the Peninsula is approximately 45 minutes drivetime away from the main airport. I recommend a room with a balcony to take advantage of river views, just spending some time watching the traffic on the river is fascinating. The hotel operates a boat service across the river to the skytrain station and access generally to 'central' Bangkok.

A lovely hotel with what I would describe (positively) as a reasonably classical, 'old school' hotel look and feel to it with great staff throughout offering a very good service and customer experience. Our room was well equipped and sufficiently spacious with an excellent bathroom (including two sinks) and separate shower, nice large double bed.

The pool area (including a restaurant/bar) is great with three separate swimming pools all quite narrow but it works well. Jacquzzi is great too.

Breakfast served on a terrace (option to eat inside if you prefer) overlooking the river, with an excellent, extensive selection of food available.

On a couple of evenings, we enjoyed pre-dinner aperitifs from the bar on the aforementioned terrace and this was great. Dined at the in-house Thiptara restaurant twice and enjoyed the ambience and Thai food there too (good but not outstanding).

I have previously stayed at the Shangri-La (in 2007) and this compares favourably, due in part I think to the Peninsula's smaller scale which I felt promoted a more more intimate experience.

If I return to Bangkok there is little doubt I would stay at the Peninsula again, it has much to recommend it.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a balcony.

What can I say? This has to be the best hotel in Thailand, even all of Asia! The typical Peninsula service is fantastic, the rooms are luxurious, spacious and immaculately clean, the location is unbeatable and the hotel has breathtaking views of the Chao Praya river!

One word "Sumptuous" described this hotel. There is too much to write about everything, one can only go there and live the experience.

This was our first stop during a two week vacation in Thailand and after a 22 hour plane journey was the pure bliss we were looking for.

The pros...
- the service here is unparalelled from the moment we walked in
- the breakfast is amazing
- live jazz in the afternoons in the lobby (if you have any downtime that is)
- rooms are surprisingly spacious
- property is very well taken care of
- entire room is wired so it can all be controlled from one pad next to the bed from lights to temp

The cons...
- you are across the river, but they run a very efficient boat service where we never had any issue at all. Hotel has great views and all the pros make up for this.
- slightly dated bathrooms one could say
