For a large hotel, the Mandarin manages to make the service and atmosphere personal so that it feels smaller. There is nothing to fault, everything was beautiful and elegant and I applaud their efforts to maintain sophistication with the dress code (why oh why would anyone come here with jean hotpants...) We particularly loved the Bamboo bar with the live... More

Not just an luxury hotel. Each service staff were truly full of hospitality, kind, nice, friendly and warm but never too much.

I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions over many years. Everything thankfully is more or less the same with piece by piece/section by section improvements along the way.

Classic hotel, the Grand Dame of hotels in Bangkok. Colonial influence clearly evident, on the river, beautifully maintained, attentive staff, delicious food, spacious room with incredible view. Be sure to request a room with the Riverview, and a possible a balcony. You'll pay for it, but it's worth the price. About an hour from the airport, Uber is available or... More

We stayed here at the end of our journey, and it was excellent. If you are deciding between Mandarin and Peninsula, I recommend Mandarin hands down.

Nobody can write a bad report on this unbelievable hotel. It beats any other I have ever stayed in.

Staying in Silom

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.
