We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of September 2011 in a Horizon Club room... this meant spending a little extra on top of the normal room cost but we felt it was definitely worth it. On arrival, we were taken to the 24th floor where there is a separate check in - the staff are all lovely... More

The Shangri is a good hotel. But the issue has to do with its "convention centre" hotel feel. It's huge and feels incredibly impersonal...in terms of being shuffled back and forth. Now this is applicable because of the competition in BKK. You have the Pen and the Mandarin (see my review). By far, both are superior. The reason? You have... More

We stayed here on the first 2 nights of our honeymoon trip and we just loved it. The location was fantastic for us, it's a minute walk from the hustle and bustle, but it's far enough for a peaceful stay too. The hotel itself is amazing, very clean and the decoration is outstanding. We were upgraded to an executive room... More

Our first trip to Bangkok and we stayed, on recommendation, at this hotel from 16-18 August 2011. We stayed on Bed and Breakfast basis, in the Horizon Club suites, with our room on the 23rd floor. Airport transfer to and from the hotel via BMW 7 Series. Prompt and excellent service, although perhaps a little small for 3 larger suitcases... More

This place is absolutely amazing - cannot begin to tell you how good it was - from the minute you get there to the minute you leave - great food and for me it is on the right side of the phrao river. Close to all the attractions and pat pong market. Nice pool and great lobby just to chill.... More

We began our honeymoon with 3 nights in the Krungthep Wing of the Shangri-La - our expectations were high and the hotel didn't disappoint! The service is top-notch with nothing too much trouble for the ever-smiling staff, who sorted out restaurant bookings, recommended trips and even reconfirmed our flights for us when the Bangkok Airways website claimed no record of...

We stay at Shangri-la every year since 1998. We have tried some other hotels but nothing like breakfast at the Chao Praya riverside. The cleanliness is superb, the staff also is. Some years ago the hotel has undergone a total renovation and the swimmingpool at the riverside is stunning and also is its bar and the pool service. Around the... More

5* and pretty darn good at that! Very big rooms with luxurious bathrooms. Excellent attentive staff. Overlooking the river, easy to get to places, and near the train. Very comfortable beds. Very quiet rooms (once we moved from near the "pinging" lifts!! Wonderful, amazing breakfasts, with every choice of food possible

The entrance was adorable. The floral arrangements caught our eyes instantly besides the super polite staff. They were were very helpful and the service in general was fine. One major issue was the seemingly mathematical way they served the wine and spirits in the lobby.To our surprise the quantities served were far less then expected. We were told that the... More
