Day 4 - Holy Touring, Batman!

So I'm definitely in a different country, of that much I am now sure. Our first full day of touring was incredible! We toured Wat Po and the Grand Palace first, both of which are spectacular. I kept feeling my heart race, eyes water, and that lump in my throat throughout the day as waves of my reality hit me over and over again.

It is currently 9:51am on Sunday, a fact which I'm still acclimating to, as I don't recall being aware of when it was technically Saturday. Mother dearest and I left L.A. around 10:30 Friday night, and I think somewhere along the way I may have noted the existence of a Saturday morning-ish period, but soon thereafter I reset my watch for China time …

We woke up early and were at breakfast at 7am. What a nice leisurely way to start the day, sitting down in the breakfast cafe, watching the hustle of the river traffic, people on their way to work to start their days. Siddhi met us at 8:30 and we passed through the flower market on our way to Old Bangkok. As he mentioned, the stall owners do not …

Again I woke up shortly before 5am and could not fall back to sleep. Bob was awake around the same time. After checking and cleaning up emails on my comcast account, we decided to get up. It was about 6:30am and it's still dark outside. We stepped out of our room around 8am and headed to the bistro for breakfast. But it was not open for food yet …

    Among the best hotels we have ever stayed at. Beautiful in every way. Very high service levels. Even a good value.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Peninsula Bangkok

    Response to oct 13 review

    from

    i stayed at the peninsula before, and agree with the reviewer from oct 13 that reception service was deficient for a 5 star hotel. this lack of efficiency reduces my rating for the hotel to 4 stars. i disagree with the oct 13 review about toiletries--i thought they were just fine. also, the reviewer did not like the fact that the hotel was on the "wrong" side of the river, and the fact that one has to take the river shuttle. this is one of the prime attractions of the hotel!! the hotel--being on the other side of the river, gives you fantastic views of the city, whereas the oriental hotel does not at all. it was an absoloute delight to take that boat across the river each time. very frequent and nice service. the hotel being across the river actually gives it an oasis type feeling--setting it apart.

    Wonderful

    from

    Myself and my boyfriend spent a wonderful day and night in the Peninsula recently. The room, on the 24th floor, was wonderful. What a view. Playing with the controls kept himself amused for ages! The huge bathroom was a great hit, the food in both Jesters and the River Cafe & Terrace were excellent and breakfast was a feast fit for a king. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. I only wish we'd booked another night or two.

    State of the art excellence

    from

    Undecided between a first stay in the Oriental or the Peninsula we decided to spend a couple of days in both. First up was the Oriental (reviewed elsewhere) afterwhich we crossed the mighty Chao Praya river (by Oriental launch!) to the Peninsula. Check in was one of several delays encountered at reception and this is an area the hotel needs to concern itself with forthwith. Having finally been given our requested high room floor we took the very fast elevator to the 31st floor. Upon entering the room and turning into the good sized bedroom (and sitting area) we were greeted by panoramic views of the river and the city beyond - marvellous!

    ...I wanna spend eternity at the Peninsula. That is all.

    Great Hotel

    from

    A great hotel

    The best staff of all 5 star hotels I have stayed in.

    Rooms we very good

    Food Excellent

    I have no problem endorsing this hotel.

    Best in Bangkok? No question.

    from

    Normally stay here 2-3 times a year, it's not just a hotel but the complete experience. Suites are very comfortable without being over the top, service is attentive yet discrete and taking the rice barges across the river adds to the feeling of being somewhere just that bit different. Jester's is very good (book for the New Year firework display, wonderful) and the Chinese restaurant is highest quality. New Thai restaurant the only disappointment, food toned to Western tastes, not quite what you want to eat in the heartland of Thai cuisine. However, they're forgiven and we'll be back soon.

    Truly a luxury hotel

    from

    There are many five star hotels but the Peninsula in Bangkok definitely deserves them. The service is excellent, the location perfect and the food outstanding. The breakfast buffet offers specialities from all over the world, from swiss Bircher Muesli to American pancakes to local dishes. The pool and spa area are elegant and clean. The rooms spacious and the staff is always smiling. Best thing is the TV in the bathtube and the airconditioning that you don't hear at all. Finally some good night sleep in an otherwise very noisy city. Only downside is the rather conservative interior design. Highly recommended hotel. Definitely better than the Oriental on the others side of the river.

    My favourite hotel in the world.

    from

    It has it all, fantastic rooms with TV in the bath tub, great views across the river, wonderful service. The pool area is superb and a nice touch is that the pool boys make sure that you always have a full glass of ice cold water (which you dont get charged for). The restaurants are wonderful the staff attentive and to add to it all the hotel is inexpensive compared to others around the world. Rooms cost about 65 per person per night, OK Bangkok is cheap but its definately worth upgrading from a 3 star at 25 to this. I am gutted that on my next trip to Bnagkok this hotel is closed out for a conference, I am going to give the Banyan Tree a whirl but will be very suprised if it can possibly better the Peninsula.

    Simply the best

    from

    My wife and i stayed here for four nights in march 2004. We can only say if you are travelling to Bangkok and want luxury stay here.

    Absolute luxury

    from

    We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon.

    The service was second to none - the room, well it was truly amazing. We had a fantastic riverside view with a balcony. Upon arrival, we were given a complimentary bottle of chilled champagne, along with chocolates and exotic fruit. The ensuite bathroom was state of the art - and even had a tv beside the bath!

    There was also a free river boat service which provided transport across the river from early morning until late at night.

    All in all, it was a once in a lifetime experience to stay in this hotel-it fully deserves it's reputation as the best hotel in Bangkok
