World Class Hotel
I hadn't been planning on writing a review, but due to the recent events in Thailand, I feel that some positive words for this wonderful hotel would not be a bad idea. My wife and I and another couple stayed at the Conrad for 2 days in early November. The location is very convenient, just a couple blocks from the sky train, and only a short cab ride from the Grand Palace. The hotel is truly world class without the stuffiness and formality of the older luxury hotels. From the moment you walk into the lobby you are immersed in modern luxury. The staff are very friendly and quick to check you in and to help you with ideas for exploring the city. My wife and I booked a room with a king sized bed, and the view was spectacular. The room itself was extremeley clean and tastefully decorated. It was separated from the bathroom by a large glass wall. The bathroom had a separate bathtub and shower (the shower is a powerful rainshower), and at night there is a turndown service that places slippers at the side of the bed and flowers on your pillow. The fitness room has trainers that help you with your workout as well as bring you fresh towels and water. There is a steam room and sauna to drown out all the achiness of a long flight. The pool was a great place to cool off after a day of touring the hot, humid city. We didn't check out the restaurants as we chose to explore Bangkok and eat out. All in all, the Conrad was the nicest hotel we had stayed at, and the price was the same as an average hotel in NYC. We will definitely stay here again.
The Conrad...one of Bangkok's best!
We stayed in three different hotels during our 2 week stay in Bangkok, and the Conrad would have to be my pick. Deluxe, five star service and accommodation is definitely what you get. The rooms were luxurious with decor touching on retro but with traditional Thai finishes giving an eclectic feel....the glass walled bathroom will ensure I never forget my wonderful stay in this hotel, along with the efficient impeccable housekeeping, spacious rooms, delicious/generous breakfast buffet, and faultless service. From the front doormen and reception, through to the business centre and room service, nothing is too much trouble! This hotel abounds with security at every corner within, as well as it's surrounds (being in the 'Embassy' area) which makes for a more comfortable stay. There is also a shopping centre connected to the hotel which contains handy favourites like 'Starbucks' and 'Subway' if you dont wish to eat in the hotel. Other bonuses included....a 'complimentary' roll-away bed, fresh orchid welcome necklaces upon arrival, a 'complimentary' Thai silk elephant handicraft, fruit bowl in room and front desk staff who dont argue with you when you state you haven't used the minibar but are accidentally charged!.....Love this hotel!!
Stayed at the Conrad for 5 nights in November 2004 and had a fantastic time. The hotel is in a business/embassy type area but is reasonably convenient for the Skytrain station and the shuttle buses run regularly from the hotel. There aren't that many eating/drinking options in the immediate vicinity of the hotel but the bars and restaurants of Sukhumvit Road are a short (and cheap!) taxi ride away.
We were a bit early for checking in so were given a standard room for the afternoon until our room was ready. We booked a deluxe corner room and having seen both types of room, this was definitely worth the little extra that we paid. Room was spacious and luxuriously decorated with walk in closet and fantastic views over Bangkok. Bathroom was also amazing.
Didn't eat at the hotel restaurants but went to the Diplomat Bar for cocktails a few times which was really nice. Also tried the Club (83) in the Hotel but this was very quiet - although it was a midweek night, might be busier on weekends.
The pool area was lovely expecially when lit up in the early evening, and the pool itself was a really good size. A good range of bar snacks and drinks are served at the pool, at very reasonable prices. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. In short, no complaints about the hotel. If you are looking for luxury at a reasonable price then stay here.
PS if in Bangkok you must go to Bed Supperclub (Sukhumvit Soi 11) which is fantastic and also serves great food. Be warned though, you do need to book ahead and take along photo ID before they'll let you in!
Stayed here at the beginning of the Sept. 2004. I thought the rooms were tastefully decorated and must admit that the see through bathroom is very unique! the gym and pool were alright and the Chinese restaurant Liu's was decent. the hotel is also conveniently located across from the American and Dutch embassies. The shuttle service to the Skytrain was convenient as well.
The hotel was perfect - the rooms were very unique and luxurious. The bar downstairs is nice and the breakfast was divine. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the location is great. When I return to Bangkok I will definitely be staying here again.
An Extraordinary Hotel Experience!!
I have traveled much and stayed in many excellent hotels, and I must say that the Conrad Bangkok is perhaps THE BEST hotel I have ever had the privilege of staying in.
I stayed in a deluxe corner room (at $150 US a night - very reasonable!), and was delighted with the beautiful city views, the luxurious bed linens, and the incredibly well-appointed bathrooms. Very luxurious and comfortable!
My husband and I paid extra for Executive Level access, and it was worth it! We had a delicious buffet breakfast every morning in from of windows which offer panoramic views of the city, and definitely the BEST coffee I had while in Thailand. The staff helped my husband and I book tours, arrange for cars, and before we left, even confirmed our flights for us!
I simply cannot say enough good things about the staff. Making sure you receive excellent customer service is a point of personal pride with all of them, and they will not rest until you are perfectly satisfied with EVERY aspect of your stay.
We stayed the first half of our stay in Bangkok at the Royal Orchid Sheraton on the river, and while it was a very nice experience, the Conrad surpassed it in every way - there is simply no other place to stay in Bangkok!
Another Bangkok Contender
Another very fine Bangkok hotel. Very handsome rooms, with an unusual glass wall between bathroom and room. Beautifully done modern decor, very functional.
Pretty good gym--spacious, adequately equipped. Poolside could run a little short on lounges on a busy day.
Great hotel. Loved every minute of being there. Not very close to a train station, but definitely walking distance.
A genuinely world-class property
I wrapped up my first trip ever to Thailand this year with 2 nights at the Conrad. It was an exceptional experience in every way. From the personal greeting when I arrived to the assistance I received at the business center to simply being greeted by the staff as I walked through the halls, the service was as good as it gets. The room was impeccable, and the food of all styles superb.
I filled out the guest comment card and mentioned one particularly helpful desk staff person by name as being an excellent example of the hotel's professionalism and service. A few days after my return to the US, I received a personal note from the GM of the Conrad thanking me for taking the time to do so. The Conrad has a fan for life!
For tennis junkies
Spent 3 nights at the Conrad & absolutely loved it.
The bathroom is a voyeur's dream. great for couples. Facilities include 2 excellent hardcourts for tennis fans, a nice swimming pool & gym for both fun n exercise.
The Diplomat bar ranks as one of the best in BKK. Enjoy the jazz!
