I just stayed at the Shangri la Bangkok and have to say it is one if the finest hotels anywhere. Let me describe the hotel and its location seperately. The hotel including its rooms, restaurants, and amenities are solid five star throughout. I had a river facing balcony room where I could sit outside and watch the activities on the river below me all day and night. There was also a soaking tub in the washroom with city views. The Next2 restaurant has a lavish buffet at each meal. I ate at the lunch buffet each day and was impressed with the quantity and moreover the quality and variety of foods. The cost is not cheap at 880 Bhat ($30 US) but well worth it. The hotel has two riverfront pools which are large and convenient although the one I went to was kid friendly so be prepared for lots of noise. There is a hudge outdoor seating area on the river front where you can eat drink and in some areas smoke and watch the river traffic. In the evening when the sun goes down this is a spectacular setting from which to watch Bangkok.
Now the hotels location. It is on the river which gives you great views and cool breezes. Land wise it is about 500 meters from a BTS station. The neighborhood is small shops and winding streets. I would not consider it a central location but a beautiful one. All in all I was very impressed with this hotel. As hard as I try I cannot think of anything negative to say about it. If you are coming to Bangkok and have the money, stay here and enjoy yourself.
