As a rule we have generally avoided staying in the city center while visiting Bangkok in the past. However this year we decided to give Siam kempinski a try - and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is optimally located for those who want to shop. It's across the road from Siam Paragon, an upscale shopping mall and close to several others either via a short walk or the hotels complimentary golf cart service. Breakfasts are a delectable spread, (Champagne included) but very very chaotic with poor customer service. However if you stay at one of their suites, you can eat at the executive dining room which is far less crowded. Service however was below expectations there too. However we were prepared for that, having read numerous reviews on trip advisor, and we didn't let it bother us. The suites are well appointed with excellent multimedia facilities. Most have balconies for smoking and an additional powder room which comes in handy, especially if travelling with kids. Response time of management to issues ( other than breakfast) was excellent. The property has a large meandering pool, but our children found it too shallow! Great for younger kids though. Kids club also seemed to be geared towards the under eight age group. Overall an excellent experience. Executive lounge servings of complimentary canapés and cocktails for suite guests was a nice touch, but selection of food items could be improved. However the proximity to Siam Paragon and it's food courts meant that it was easy to avoid eating here if you wanted economical options. Would definitely stay here again.
