Many years ago I lived in India and whenever I could I would fly to Thailand to relax. That was when I discovered the Oriental in Bangkok and became a regular. Fast forward: I recently had to attend a week long business meeting in Bangkok and decided to stay at the Oriental again. It felt like I never left. The... More

The service! I have never experienced anything like it. So smooth and effortless. I recommend this for anyone who appreciate excellent service. From your first entry you are bombarded with attentive and smooth service, and it never feels too much. The rooms are great and the pools are pleasant. I also tried the spa, which was very luxurious and relaxing.... More

One of things we loved about this hotel was the fact that it had great restaurants along the river, and there was even a complimentary traditional boat that would shuttle you across to the other side. The lounge singer was very good as was the service throughout the hotel. We especially enjoyed the cultural show with dinner one evening. Highly... More

Taste of old school charm, be prepared to be pampered and have all your needs taken care of. Had a lovely time here and the butlers took care of us, great experience. Don't forget to take the boat rides along the river and be prepared for a relaxing evening in the bamboo bar.

Have stayed here many times and enjoy the atmosphere, good restaurants and river view. But it is also the most expensive hotel and I doubt it is worth the extra price compared to some of the other nearby top hotels. We got 3 nights at the price of 2 which is the good deal.
