Great hotel with superb service and although it is more of a business hotel, we did feel welcome and not uncomfortable at all with our four kids. Location on the Chao Praya (with breakfast on the terrace beside the river) is great.

We've stayed at the Oriental several times, a favourite being in he Garden wing with a two-level suite. Later, taking a second home in Bangkok at the River Garden, we continued to enjoy the Oriental for dinners out, drinks, etc. Service is always top notch and the character of the Authors' wing is unbeatable. Dining on the terrace overlooking the... More

Was at the mandarin for a wedding in June and was excited to stay there as I heard lots of good things about the place. Butler service was very attentive and couldn't have asked for more. however, lots of flies in the hotel for some reason, mostly outdoor areas, very distracting and annoying, not expected from one of the best...

This hotel was really nice. But it was a bit typical in the sense that it had a palatial lobby and a small room. The lobby will excite you and the room will just please you. I don't mean this comment to sound negative because it's not meant to be that way but I've stayed in several of these hotels... More

I was lucky enough to stay in the Oriental as a child and came back this year for the first time as a young adult.

I had the great fortune of visiting the Mandarin Oriental during a trip to Thailand in November and was very impressed. The nothing is too much trouble attitude was great especially when you have your own "Butler" on each floor to assist with dry cleaning etc. The food was simply amazing even when they catered for us at other locations.

My previous stay at the Oriental was back in 2003, and 11 years later I am delighted to rediscover the same perfect property. Sky level service & hard product in mint condition. VIP welcome at the airport (1,500 Bahts) is the best I ever experienced. You actually save a huge amount of time as they take you onboard a kind... More

Overall this is a really nice hotel with a great pool for relaxing during the hot afternoons in Bangkok. The service overall was very good and the concierge did a great job arranging a tour and restaurant reservations for us. One annoying rule in the hotel, however, which I think took away from the overall quality of our stay was... More
