“The best breakfast! Tranquil hotel in the centre of a mad city not cheap but very luxurious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

The rooms are stunning and all face InTo the pool area excellent service from all the staff. The hotel is very stylish and has easy access to some of Bangkok s high end shops. Sru bua restaurant has inventive and beautifully presented food. And the champagne buffet breakfast each morning is vast do much delicious things to choose from from all cultures. Really enjoyed our stay and good value compared to the price you would pay at a similar hotel in London.

This is my second stay at the hotel. The room is spacious, with modern design and beautiful decorations. I love the bathroom which seems seamless with the room because it is only separated by a glass wall and you can comfortably watch tv while taking a bath! and off course if you have company in the room, they can also see whatever business you are doing in the bathroom. Not to worry, if you are the shy type(even by yourself) you can pull down the screen for privacy.
I went to the Thai restaurant in the hotel for dinner( Sorry forgot the name of the restaurant). If
you are not in a hurry and love experimenting with Thai fusion food, this is the place. I assure
you the food is unique and they really put all their creavity and talent to make Thai delicacies even more interesting.

The service is great and they escort you to the room and explain all the facilities in the room and carbonated drinks in the room is free. Another plus would be it soooo near to shopping complexes in particular Siam Paragon which is only accross the street. If this hotel is not so pricey I would certainly stay here more often. Oh well! you pay for the quality...

Room Tip: higher floors for better view and less noise from the streets.

Prior to arrival, I had several correspondences with the Chief Concierge Khun Theerasak to request for restaurant recommendations, assist in making reservations and requests for bike tours in and outside of Bangkok. I was very impressed with the information and service provided. I also had correspondences with the Duty Manager, Khun Jaruwan who was very helpful and informed me of the cooking class offered for kids in the Kid's Club, which we signed up for.
Upon arrival, I was very pleased with the warm welcome and prompt check-in. The rooms are fabulous. Very high end, clean and comfortable.
Housekeeping was very good. They added little touches like changing our fruits everyday, leaving cookies and milk before bedtime for my 2 boys, etc...
Location is very good. Close to the Siam BTS which has 2 lines. Being very central, traffic is very congested around the area, especially coming in. BTS is recommended!!
We were there during a very busy time (after Christmas to New Year) and the breakfast was very crowded and busy. They opened the Thai Resto as an alternative breakfast place which was more quiet, subdued and had better service.
The gym is very complete, clean, nice and great service too! Check with the hotel for the schedule of classes.
I would recommend that they re-look at what they have to offer for New Year's Eve. It would need a little more excitement and she-bang. It would also help if the hotel provided hats and horns in the room on the 31st of Decemer to add to the atmosphere.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and won't hesitate staying here again.

You cannot beat the location unless you want to stay right at the river, but this hotel is very centrally located. The giant Siam paragon mall is literally a 2-minute walk from the hotel, yet the hotel is surrounded by luscious gardens on one side and is very calm despite being in the hub of Bangkok.
New and modern rooms, impeccable and clean! The rooms are really comfortable and amenities are of top quality- what you would expect from a very good Kempinski. Nice reception and lounge area and the gym is very good and functional. Internet was perfect throughout the hotel.
The pool area is very nice and once seated you get a cold towel, a bottle of water and stick of fruits- yummy. You want to choose your pool seats carefully since the sun disappear early in the afternoon from parts of the area due to buildings that block sunlight around the pool.
The rooms as I mentioned were very clean and you almost never see the cleaning staff althoug the room seemed to be ready and clean the minute we walked in and out!
Now come two points I did not appreciate and they are probably both linked to the same reason:
1/ The receptionists that welcomed us kept telling us about welcome drinks that will arrive, but they never made it although we were sitting and waiting for our rooms in the lounge area for a considerable amount of time.
2/ The breakfast area in the morning was so packed it was intimidating and the service was very poor: cold coffee after waiting for a long time to be served, very crowded buffet and an agitated staff that is obviously under stress from the dozens and dozens of huge families that flocked together for breakfast. I should point out that I stayed at this hotel just after the new year, so it appears that they hotel was at full capacity and that the services could not follow. So I really recommend that they train their staff to handle a very large breakfast area and because it was holidays the amount of people was significant so I sympathized with the staff. The very next day I started having my breakfasts at the lounge/club floor and it was like night and day- perfect and up to the standards of services expected.

Room Tip: From the sixth floor, probably fifth too, and above you have very nice views of the sky-line and try...

The Lady in Red Concierce service was wonderful. Jia arranged with the chefs(who came out personally to talk with me) to have gluten free fare at the hotel restaurants and the breakfast buffet. She also printed a card in Thai describing the gluten free diet to present to outside restaurants as well.
I am very sensitive to gluten and did not get "glutened" at all during my stay there.
This is the best hotel I've ever stayed at.

Stayed here on a business trip and was told by our local Thai team that this hotel claims to be 6 stars... I believe it! From the car service in 7 series BMW, to the check-in in my room, to the lovely touches (like fruit in the room and a free minibar), everything was tasteful and luxury. I even loved my in-room toiletries. The staff were extremely professional and accomodating- and I loved the sleek uniforms that included a cape for the women. The included breakfast buffet was delish and i only wished I hadn't been on a business trip so I could have spent some time at the restful pool. Next time!

Everything about this hotel was a 5 star experience - from hassle free check in, beautiful rooms and bathrooms, restaurants, swimming pools, kids club, and the overall service we received including the "little extras" - giving my daughter a silk elephant toy upon arrival, lots of fruits everyday in our room, a chocolate sculpture and other nightly things they put in our room, choice of pillows for your bed, free mini bar, breakfast til 11:00 AM, and the option of having it in the coffee shop or at the Sra Bua restaurant. They also provide a golf cart for your use during your stay.
We also had a wonderful dinner at Sra Bua. One of the best dining experiences I've ever had and well worth the 2,500+ baht per head. I think this is a must for all foodies.
The Paragon Mall is across the street from the hotel as well.

Room Tip: Mostly all the rooms face the pool. There are some rooms with balconies and some without. So do make...
