we stayed in the Krungthep wing, which provided us with a large room with a river view and a balcony. The amenities that are included in this wing are top notch - breakfast is served buffet style with a choice of cooked-to-order options; happy hour (included) in the lounge for about 2 hours, with a selection of cocktails, wines, beer and hot and cold appetizers; afternoon tea with cakes. As others have mentioned, the hotel - especially the Krungthep wing - is directly next to the central ferry dock and a metro station, which are both great ways to get around the city and see the sites. The concierge was very helpful - we wanted to book a massage off property which they executed without any attempt to sell us the on-site spa offerings. They also secured a last minute reservation for us at Lord Jim's (next door at the Mandarin).
