“First choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We loved the service, the pools, the proximity to the rest of Bangkok, but most of all the breakfast.
Beautiful setting on the river, great selections. I wish we could live there!
We've stayed at plenty of places, newer, more expensive and cheaper throughout the world but few could come close to this one.
Big rooms, Plenty of english language channels, ours had tv in the bathroom over the tub which may be a bit over the top, but after a few weeks away..I needed a bubble bath and to watch tv at the same time.
Professional staff, help with late checkout, a really good hotel.
OK one thing detracts, but this is everywhere, the pillows, they use those pillows that slowly deflate til you're sleeping on 2 feathers.
And they kept me waiting at the spa, but I'm reaching, trying to find a negative there. We will be back without a doubt.

Room Tip: Try to have a view of the river

We recently spent a couple of nights at the Peninsula Bangkok whilst on our honeymoon.

We were upgraded to a wonderful room, the service was impeccable and the food fabulous.

A very relaxing place to stay in busy Bangkok.

We stayed at the peninsula for the first few days of our 2 week honeymoon in Thailand. Its in an awesome location, the service is great, and the breakfast is AMAZING. We couldn't wait to wake up and eat for the few days we were there. They arranged a tour for us which was great - it was just us and the tour guide and it wasn't very expensive. I can't remember which room we stayed in but I know that it was an upgrade (thanks to Amex travel) and it was awesome. Had a great view of the city/river and a massive bathroom. It's pretty expensive but because of a special that was running we paid for two nights to stay for 3.

Wow the service is outstanding, as well as the location!!! the hotel is the newest of the area but it has an Old style decoration... I dont think its worth its price, it is very expensive vompared to the ones around which are as good as this one....I dont recommend it if you want to party or have fun... is a very calm hotel and a lot of old people... if you want a bit of party go to the Hilton in front of it... anywhere you stay by the river is the Best option in Bangkok.

There a lot of excellent hotels in the world and I have stayed in many of them. When you are not counting resorts , but city hotels, the Peninsula in Bangkok (basically all the Peninsulas that we have stayed, HK and Shanghai ) are one of the best in the world. The design of the rooms and the public areas, the quality of the maintenance , the excellent service ,the food and basically in every criteria, it is a standard of its own. We stayed here five years ago and every thing remain as it was. The rooms are big (I assume more than 40 M2 ) breakfast buffe was perfect and the dinner buffe was even better. The swimming pool and the flowers. Luxury at its best. We enjoyed every moment of it.

There are 5 & 6 stars hotels, some are new and some are getting on in years. This is one place which had kept its old world charm by providing the service that matters to the guest.

What matters to me - 1. Convenience to transportation , 2.Clean, Comfortable and Secure rooms , 3. Great view is a plus 4.Has sports facilities 5.Reasonable food outlets. On all these counts I score them excellent!

The "summon it when you need it" boat that takes you to the BTS Sky train that takes you to MBK, Siam Square, Silom, within 5 stations, cutting off the jams on the road is simply great! Another great thing about it - operates till midnight. I can almost be certain that I can reach an office in Silom within 30 minutes including walking time when I leave my hotel room.

The only drawback is I got taken on a "round about" trip by the taxi driver to boost up the meter fare when I asked to be taken back by the taxi to the hotel. Going to Silom by taxi is also a nightmare -- you can get stuck in traffic for more than an hour! I learnt from the mistake and started taking the boat - BTS combo!

Room Tip: The higher floor rooms has a great view of the river.

The Peninsula experience is all you won't find in other parts of Bangkok as they will surprise you with their level of service and ability to effectively communicate and understand English. You just need to take the shuttle boat across to the other side of the river & take a walk along the streets to know that the real Bangkok doesn't work with such efficiency (more laid back) and doesn't communicate as effectively as the waiting staff at Peninsula. In other words, almost Utopia-like feel when you stay this hotel.

Room Tip: If you are not a night owl, you may want to request for a room that doesn't have an open balcony...
