Shangri-La Hotel,Bangkok
Ranked #22 of 885 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 July 2012

After two weeks in another part of Bangkok, my wife and I checked into the Shagri-La for recuperation after the crowds of the city. We had a wonderful stay. The location near the water taxi and Skytrain was so very convenient that we didn't need to fight Bangkok traffic again. We loved having drinks and snacks (dinner really) in the Lobby Bar. There was a great view of the river, excellent service and tasty food. We went back several evenings. The staff was extremely helpful. Our expectations were exceeded in every category.

Room Tip: A River View room is worth it.

Please note that I am reviewing only the dinner cruise on board of the Horizon. In fact, I did not stay at this hotel and only came here for the dinner.
The dinner was a very pleasant experience. We asked for a table in the open air (I strongly recommend it, unless it rains). The sailing ay night along the Chao Phraya was a great experience. Although we had been already going up and down the river several times (at day time) we still found this one very beautiful. The view over the temples, the palace, the towers/hotels and the bridges all lit up in the night is magic. The food (buffet style) is very good: we found the starters really delicious, whereas the main dishes were good but a bit more ordinary. Rich also the dessert buffet. Prices above average but not that much. Worth trying in my view unless you're on a budget trip.

This hotel is fantastic. The room was big and clean, well presented with a balcony overlooking the river. What a view!!. Totally different again on an evening. All the hotel boats are lit up, bobbing across the river from hotel to hotel, dropping people off. The hotel reception / lobby and grounds are excellent. You wouldn't think you were in the middle of a chaotic City. Staff are polite and helpful, pool area very clean. Restaurants and buffet are of top quality. The food was excellent and you had a good selection from the buffet. Chocolate !!! . This was the second stop of our honeymoon and the temples and palaces are a must see, they are beautiful. But Bangkok is a bit chaotic. The mono rail is a good way to get around and a trip up and down the river is a must.
Just one bit of advice,to all you ladies and gentlemen if you go out for a meal on an evening, be aware of the mosquito's they will hammer your legs if you eat outside. Make sure you have a good mosquito repellent or cover up your legs or eat inside. My wife got badly bitten on her legs and i had a few. You live and learn so now if we travel to a hot country we use at least 50/100 deet repellent (from amazon)

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room

Just completed a 7-night stay at the hotel. From check-in to departure, everything was exceptional. The staff were very attentive in all areas of the hotel. Pool area - my wife spent days at the pool while I was in business meetings. Great location by the river, opportunities for either sun or shade, helpful staff. Evening buffet at Next2 restaurant was very good with many choices. I would highly recommend a room on the Horizon Club floors - great view from the Horizon Club lounge, breakfast buffet and snacks at evening happy hour are complimentary. You could easily make it through the day on food available at breakfast and Happy Hour. Location is great - overlooks the river, Sky Train terminal and boat pier are very close. This is my hotel of choice whenever I am in Bangkok.
