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

Why would the best business hotel in Asia want to tarnish the experience with high internet charges? I only wanted to check a few emails. I struggle to write about my level of annoyance of what is effectively a 5% up charge of the daily rate room rate for Wi Fi access ...a service which most hotels provide for free.... More

Dear Brian E Thank you for your TripAdvisor review of Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok and I regret to learn about your Wi-Fi experience. With regards to the Internet, while some hotels may offer complimentary Internet access, this can be limited in terms of low bandwidth, security level and signal which would be unacceptable in a luxury hotel.

We had a two bedroom suite, with a great view of the river and it was a surprisingly good value. Our butler's attention to detail went over above and beyond the ordinary 9he even cleaned our hairbrushes!). The rooms were comfortable and most of our meals were consumed at the hotel, since the military coup was in progress while we... More

Its a fine hotel but I really don't understand what the "WOW" of other reviews is all about. The hotel is WAAAAY overpriced for Bangkok and the service is just okay. Everything is American Prices which is just way too much considering you can get the same services for 1/10 of the price in the city. BEWARE that none of... More
