Had a chance to stay at the Mandarin in Bangkok just for one night. What I can say is that one night is far from being enough to experience this "dinosaur" of a hotel to the fullest. You actually need a map to understand where it starts and where it ends!! Still, i'll try my best to write an objective... More

W.hen we were in Bangkok we stopped by the Mandarin Oriental for drinks.The lobby and lounge are outstanding, pure luxury covered fresh orchids. One of the most beautiful lobbies in a hotel I have ever seen. Next time we visit Bangkok we will for sure stay in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel

I have been in many Mandarin Oriental hotels and the one in Bangkok is my favourite. Every single area of the hotel is beautiful, romantic and perfect. The service is amazing and the staff very kind. It is the only hotel where I like to stay in Bangkok.

Stayed here about fifteen times now at all times of the year. Been there the last three January's. The service is fantastic, the rooms are good without being fantastic but we always have the same room on the third floor overlooking the river and swimming pool. Very classy, secluded, special place. Small criticism last January was that the Manager never... More

We've stayed at The Oriental several times, we can't help ourselves! While the hotel is true luxury, a true Five star property with a wing named for writers (which I really love). This amazing hotel has an ordinary, unpretentious way of being in the world. If you can afford the room (maybe even if you can't), you are treated as... More

I always like to read the negative reviews before I decide to stay in a hotel so I really don't know what those reviewers were thinking! This would have to be one of the best and most pleasant hotels around. Staff were attentive, attractively dressed and polite, rooms were spacious and well presented, clean and comfortable. Every meal we had... More

True to the well paid tributes and reputation, The Oriental had proven itself times and times again over many years. Our most recent stay was nothing less than excellent. From the booking service, which I had called. Noted that the room I had stayed previously is still under renovation, Ms. Ananya Utidchalanon from Reservation had kindly suggested alternative room for... More

I had just completed the "Snowman Trek" in beautiful Bhutan and after 25 days camping I was in need of luxurious rest and repose. I certainly found it at this hotel in spite of a dubious welcome upon arrival. Perhaps it was my somewhat dishevelled appearance!

Lovely hotel, great location. Looking a bit tired now. A hub for the rich and famous in Bangkok. We had butler service which when order a pot of tea was over priced and over the top, Pool was good but not many loungers when busy. Food good though
