    Historical Traveler Reviews Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok

    First class!


    The oriental is the true definition of a 5 star hotel ! everything was perfect.

    Book the hotel limosuine service and you will arrive comfortable and relaxed. You will realise that it's worth every penny when you get into the airconditioned car with refreshments and chilled hand towel, as you drive past the massive queue of tired and stressed backpackers waiting for a cab outside the airport !!

    This was truely a memorable stay with great service and total luxury. With everything being paid for in US dollars we found that when we coverted back to sterling the cost was about £200 / per night (but this includes all room service, dinner, drinks, transfers etc !)

    Would recommend you try the sunday brunch in the authors lounge !

    Best Service, unbeatable location


    My husband and I honeymooned here before jetting off to Bali. I can't say enough about the service at the hotel. I don't know how, but after we checked in, the concierge desk always addressed us by our name. One day, it was raining, and as we were walking out to meet our guide at the valet, one of the bellhops ran over with 2 umbrellas. The amount of care and detail the hotel pours into the service at this hotel is astounding. The food options are plentiful and truly outstanding. They have French, Chinese, and obviously, Thai restaurants. One restaurant has Thai dancing in the evenings during dinner, and it is truly an amazing show. Fresh fruit in our room every day, and a bottle of wine upon arrival. The service was truly fantastic without being annoying. Please, please, make sure you visit the spa. Husband and I had side-by-side massages in our own private massage room. They also have a Thai Cooking school on-site. I took a class one morning and it was fantastic. We cooked 3 dishes, and got to eat them all, keep the recipes, and meet other people. I really can't say enough about this hotel. And the location on the river is spectacular. Very very close to Peninsula and Shangri-la, and the hotel's boats can shuttle you there for dinner. This place was very warm and inviting. We will be back!

    Best in the world


    Having stayed in many nice hotels around the world, I have to admit that the Oriental is definitely the best hotel I have ever seen. The rooms are really nice (and so many flowers), ours had a river view which is definitely a plus. The riverside restaurants are amazing, listening to the live music while enjoying the somptuous bufftet dinner and watching the boats of the Chao Praya will remain one of our bests dining experience ever (with the rose champagne brunch of the Ritz Carlton in Shanghai, the amazing NY Grill on top of the Park Hyatt Tokyo and the canal restaurants of the Danieli and the Gritti in Venice). The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful (the floor butler runs to call the elevator for you!). To be honest what makes you feel well at the Oriental is that despite the (No backpackers/ no sandals/ no shorts) sign at the entrance, nobody seems to stare coldly at people as they do in European luxury hotels (I am sure everybody understands what I mean) I remember at Park Hyatt Milan, nobody seemed to notice us until I called a guy to tell him we had a reservation... maybe because we actually are 25 years old travellers with backpacks.

    Wonderful in Every Way


    We have been to Bangkok many times and each time we say we want to stay at The Oriental. This time we did and we're sorry we waited this long. The service is perfect, the food at its restaurants excellent, and the room--it was a serene haven in a busy city. The price was excellent as well especially for the quality of service we received. Don't miss an opportunity to stay there!

    For the mass


    All of the guests seem to be from some sort of american package tour. The food looked and tasted terrible. The menu is said to be made by Alain Ducasse (the Parisien Cook) but it's not even close to what he is serving in Paris. I have had much better experiences in the Sukhothai. A much more beutifull hotel in a very stylish oriental setting, with very good service.

    A perfect place to stay and eat outside in Bangkok


    We stayed for 4 nights in the Oriental. Everything was perfect- I never had a hotel room like that, every small detail was perfect and the butler was very friendly. The whole staff was very friendly. Even though we wanted to eat somewhere else than in the barbecue restaurant, we actually had dinner there 4 times!! It was great food for a good price and sitting at the terrace of Oriental was wonderful. We definitely want to stay at the Oriental the next time we`ll go to Bangkok.

    Simply the Best


    I've just returned from a 4 night stay at the Oriental and it was fantastic.

    The staff are the best in the world. I've stayed at the Peninsula Hotel, Bangkok, which was good but doesn't come close to beating the Oriental.

    The care and attention given to the guests at the Oriental is second to none.

    The Best in the World


    Without question the best hotel I have ever stayed at in the world. Impeccable service, spectacular setting, outstanding food--the very best of everything. If you have the chance do not under any circumstances miss it.



    Nothing compares to this hotel. It manages to combine unrivalled service with a touch of history. We stayed only one night, which was too short a time. The Shangri La, next door, comes close in terms of comfort and has slightly bigger rooms, but the Oriental beats it for the sheer brilliance of the experience of staying there.

    A word of it's own.


    I have been in various 5 star hotels, but "The Oriental "has to be the best I have ever set foot in.

    Completly renovated, the rooms are spacious and very accomodating, beautiful bathroom, all have breathtaking view of the river.

    Various resturants to choose from but the most reasonably priced is the barbacue by the river.

    From the care taken in ironing your shirts ,to the full -size table they bring you in room breakfast, you realize that over one hunderd years experience in hotel managing is not a thing you find everywhere.

    The Soothing Quality of Bangkok

    After travelling through the intensity of China, Hong Kong and Singapore, we have had a lot of YANG (male) energy. Lots of go go go - people pushing, getting places, making things happen. Entering into Thailand was like a cool dip into the YIN...soft, female energy that allowed us all to relax and exhale. The kindness and deference of the people …

    Christian and Duang's party last night was great. We both had a good time and we are paying for it today. But there are a few sights we have to see before we leave Bangkok. Irina still wants to see the Emerald Buddha and the Reclining Buddha. This time we take the BST to the Saphan Taksin station and walk a very short distance …

    Made it to our hotel by 1 o'clock and we are impressed with location, quality and view. Off for an afternoon boat tour of the river and canals, with a stop at the Dawn Temple. It's in the mid nineties at least. Back late afternoon for some iced Starbucks drinks and then a quick dip in the hotel's strategically placed pool. Later we head out for a …
