“We really enjoyed this hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This property is very nice and the staff is fabulous!!

I cannot speak very well to the location because we spent most of our days touring other areas. It is a very busy area and there is a cute little restaurant around the corner at the Rose Hotel. It is called Ruen Urai and we enjoyed it. (The concierge recommended it.)

When we arrived for check-in we were greeted exactly as you would expect at a Le Meridien: warmly and professionally. Someone also brought us a yummy "shot" of icy slushy coffee. We arrived a bit before check-in time and our room was not available so the front desk gave us codes for the wi-fi and suggested we wait on the 6th floor where the pool and spa are located. We were able to sit inside and enjoy some a/c, as well as lunch from the pool bar and a wonderful view. It would have been nice to check into the room but it was nice to get to see this area too. There were several people taking advantage of the pool. Not a large pool but what you might expect for a Bangkok hotel.

The room was beautiful. The window ran the length of one wall and a small part of another. The view was incredible.

The bathroom had a soaking tub and a shower. The wall between the bedroom and the bathroom was movable. It would be possible to shower or soak in the tub and have a view of the Bangkok skyline (you will want to make sure all lights are turned out so you don't give Bangkok a show!)

There was a nice cushy bathrobe and the best slippers I have ever had in a hotel. (As a matter of fact, I purchased a set of the slippers as a souvenir.)

The package that we booked included breakfast and it was well worth it. Lots of Asian options but Western options as well. Cooked to order eggs, waffles, lots of fresh fruit, salads, fried rice, yogurts, cereals, several juices. The breakfast was very nicely done. They have a little area of "shot" glasses with a mix of juices and spices in them. These were fun and interesting. Probably the closest I will ever get to eating a Jean-Georges Vongerichten meal.

I asked the concierge for a recommendation on a tour of Bangkok and he recommended taking a tour outside of Bangkok, saying that we could do the temples and the Grand Palace on our own. He booked a tour for us through the company they recommend. We got very lucky and had a fabulous guide! We requested a tour that included the Floating Markets in Damnoen Saduak and the market in Mae Klong where the train runs through. Our guide and a driver met us at the hotel the following morning and took us on a wonderful tour. We enjoyed the tour so much that we booked one for the next day to see some Bangkok temples and the Grand Palace.

I cannot say enough about the staff. We were warmly greeted each time we came in. One day when we walked in, the gentleman holding the door asked where we had been that day. When we told him we had been to see the markets, he asked if we went alone or with a tour guide. When we told him we went with the guide he was very concerned and wanted to know where she was. We told him that we asked to be left at the Hyatt for tea. It was kind of funny because he asked in a very protective tone. It made us feel like someone was looking out for us.

Would gladly stay here again.

Room Tip: We booked a corner room. There is a nice window that runs about halfway down the wall but also the f...

Very centrally located with an amazing staff. One of the nicest hotel staffs I've ever experienced. Definitely the most helpful and efficient staff in Thailand. The Italian restaurant in the hotel, Favola was spectacular!

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights, the hotel is very close to the Sky train making it so easy to explore the Sukhumvit area. Its also adjacent to the Patpong night market which has some of the best street food in Bangkok, Le Meridian is right in the center of the madness that is Bangkok but once you go inside the hotel it is so quiet, slick black tiled floors, cool modern trendy interior and so clean.
We had a 9th floor corner room which gave us a dual aspect of the city skyline, very cool.
The only time we ate was at breakfast, which was a international breakfast buffet as good as you would expect from a 5 star.
On my birthday they even sent a little "birthday cake"!!!!!
The overall feeling was this felt more like a Boutique Parisian Hotel with the friendly Thai hospitality, an excellent choice if staying in Bangkok.

Room Tip: Book a corner room, for the view.

I was staying at Le Meridian last year attending a dealer conference hosted by a US company and it helped me to do a lot of shopping as this hotel is situated at the shopping hub of BKK. There are many malls next to the hotel and one beneath the hotel as well. If you dont like any of them then there is the mono rail just outside the hotel which will take you to many other malls. There is street food, pub food, subway and many other kind of food around the hotel other than the hotel restaurants where you can eat. There is a Mc. Donalds which is open 24 hours which was hady when you come at 4 in the morning partying at one of the most famous night clubs in BKK which happens to be also in walking distance. Since its far away from the red light district its an ideal location for families travelling.

I love coming to stay at Le Meridien. I constantly get upgraded, and I haven't encountered anything but excellent service here. I love the link station which allows me to print itinerary updates. The ambiance in the hotel is lively and the staff here are top notch. The internet is fast and during my last stay, they even packed me a to go breakfast because I had to head to the airport early. It's convenient to the DMK and BKK airports. The Surawong area can seem a little seedy at times but it's just fine. It offers a great night market and good restaurants nearby. The concierge are very well versed in things to do around the area.

Room Tip: All the rooms are modern and contemporary but the suites are phenomenal.

Staying for a 3 day conference and the third time in 3 years, this hotel just doesn't change. It's brilliantly consistent. The foyer is my favorite, always cool, trendy and with atmosphere. The staff are just brilliant - no matter what you want this understated 5 star hotel just delivers. It's location is so convenient, walking to distance to some amazing restaurants - particularly Japanese Street (don't be put off with girls sitting outside bars - walk up this street and you'll find some of the best Japense restaurants anywhere). Easy taxi to Paragon and all the shops there, easy to the river. Food is lovely with buffet just brilliant. Meeting rooms and service for us was spot on - if anything we had way too much food - I'd suggest you order your needs rather than take the package. We always enjoy having drinks in foyer early evening before heading out, it's interesting. If not the foyer then go Bamboo bar, very chic and if busy, well worth it. If traveling on business and looking for a fun hotel rather than a stuffy 5 star go here.

Room Tip: We like the speciality room with round bed, it's different but try to get with Exec benefits - d...
