Having worked and stayed in many hotels over the years this has got to be the best in so many areas. The quality of staff and service is second to none, all were extremely smart, polite and helpful. There was a wide range of food to choose from in the hotel paticuarly in the main rstaurant which is varied serving... More

It's not my first time in Bangkok, but the first time at Shangri-La... And between the renovation (construction= noise, smell of paint...), the lack of service even for rewards programm customers, I would not recommand to go to Shangri-La during the next coming weeks... Even it is a Shangri la, well located and with a nice terasse and swimming pool....

We booked directly with the hotel and got a room in the supposedly renovated "Shangri-La Wing" for with a base rate of 6500 baht per night with 1) a "free" upgrade 2) breakfast 3) 20% off spa services. Then, they add a 10% service charge, so with that and the city tax, the total was about 250 US per night.... More

A nice place to escape the hustle of Bangkok. Pool area was lovely. Staff were extremely attentive. In retrospect I wouldn't organise a limousine from airport it came to $80 AU. Taxis are fine in BKK and quite cheap just make sure you get a metered one . The breakfast buffet works out to be around $25 AU - expensive... More

I stayed at Shangri-la (Krungthep wing) along with my wife. We loved the hotel. The location is the best in Bangkok. Breakfast is also amazing at 'Next2' which is by the river. We loved the place.

Not sure why some of these reviews indicate that the service at the Shangri-La is less than perfect, that is not what we found. This hotel (Krungthep Wing) is perfect as was the service. From your personal butler to the pool attendants it was all 5-star. The room is great overlooking the river with a large balcony and even better... More

we spent only one night there at our arrival to BKK, it is an excellent hotel in a very good location. the buffet for diner is very good with a huge variety of meals and desserts, it is exactly what you expect from a 5 stars hotel and you pay for what you get.

Stayed for 5 nights in a deluxe suite in the Krunthep wing. One of the really special things about our stay was Betty, our butler. What a delightful lady! Nothing was too much trouble and there were so many lovely things she did for us (like a rose petal bath on my husband's birthday, fresh flowers in the room, essential... More

The Shangrila is a lovely hotel - very peaceful and a great break from Bangkok. Our room was beautiful overlooking to River - and the bonus of free breakfast, tea and cocktails make the Krungthep wing a wonderful place to escape the heat, rest and relax. I was not impressed, however, with the staff, which is too sad. I didn't... More

This was our 2nd time at Shangri-La and we paid for a suite. The first 2 nights, we had 5 electrical outages in our room. The hotel staff got to know us quite well due to that. They couldn't move us because the hotel was booked but finally did on our last night when the electricity went out yet again.... More
