I have been staying at this hotel for close to thirty years. Indeed in all that time I have never stayed anywhere else in Bangkok. It is very tough for any hotel to keep up exceptional standards for that length of time but the Mandarin Oriental manages it. Their rooms may not be the glitziest around, but they are extremely...

To write an objective review without gushing is a little difficult. By the time you are out of your vehicle your cases have been taken. Check in is actually enjoyable and you are personally escorted to your room. You get a butler - he's not there just to rake in tips he's there to make your stay as best as...

I only stay in top 5 star hotels when I travel. This hotel is probably the best I have stayed at so far. I am usually very harsh with my reviews but this place is just perfect. Excellent service, excellent food, beautiful lobby. I could go on for ages but all I can say is that staying at this hotel...

This is a great hotel, as so many people know. Lunch outside in the restaurant down by the river is to die for. Immaculate service, no body rushes you, and you just eat, drink and watch the world go by, both around the hotel and up and down the adjacent river. Food is immaculate, as was the Thai wine! A...

Still love this hotel. It's a class above your usual 5 Star. The staff is very gracious and the service is impeccable. Our family consisted of 11 but the check in process was swift. We had a fabulous dinner in their seafood restaurant. Expensive but worth it. Wasn't too crazy about their Thai dinner with show across the river. All...

The rooms are great. The beds are one of the most comfortable I've had in hotels. The service is top notch although when they get busy at breakfast and dinner there were a coupe of glitches. The wi fi is good. The pool area is great. Initially i was a little annoyed that the gym required a short boat trip...

It's not the (rather ugly) main building or the luxurious beds and rooms that make this one of the best hotels in the world, but it's the service.

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
