Well coming off staying in Koh Samui at the Four Seasons for a week I would say that this hotel was pretty much a let down. We booked using the AMEX travel service as this is one of there Fine Properties I am starting to wonder if AMEX actually checks these hotels. We arrived to be told that our room... More

I planned special Christmas Eve dinner months ahead at Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Bangkok. Many emails has gone back and forth as they wanted my credit card detail etc. But we were not informed of "SMART CASUAL" dress code. On the Christmas Eve day, we had relaxing spa time in the afternoon at the Mandarin, then went to Christmas dinner (Outdoor... More

I went back to Thailand in December and again stayed at the Oriental. Upon arrival as I am a previous guest and since the hotel wasn't that busy(I arrived Tue 8th although did get busier later in week) I was offered an upgrade to one of the best suites in the house(while not cheap wasn't ridiculous by Oriental prices). I... More

My husband and I were eagerly awaiting our return to the Oriental Hotel after a fabulous experience there two years ago.. What a difference two years makes! Before the hotel was the best value with the best service we have ever had. This time it was way overpriced and just another big impersonal chain hotel. Before there was a butler... More

One of the world's great hotels. I learned the average length of service for MO's current employees is something like 15+ years - this is a good indicator for the standard of service provided. In room check-in, a lift operator that knows your name and floor on day one, quality F&B make this a top property. The butler per floor... More

Went to have a look at this hotel as I come to BKK 10 times each year. Security however would not even let me in to look as I was not dressed well enough. I was wearing shorts, polo top and shoes and sox. We asked to speak to the security manager but made not difference. This hotel does not... More

Truly exceptional hotel, greeted promptly,free room upgrade with beautiful river views.Staff extremely friendly, breakfast was a enjoyable experience. Staff remembered our drinks/coffee's (coffee was gourmet) they even remembered how many we had, they were always hovering in the background to make our stay positive. The staff also knew our names even though we stayed for only 3 days. The Thai... More

For the second time in less than 2 years we stayed at the legendary sensational Oriental. For this long 10 nights stay we choose a Deluxe State room. It was dreamily fantastic: very spacious, with a breathtaking river view, a small balcony with chairs and table (but difficult to stay there at night because of the mosquitoes…), an amazing decoration...

The service and people are truly great and make the difference. I tried another hotel recently in Bangkok and could feel the difference it makes. Hotels for me are about the people working there and how their leaders are - the Mandarin Oriental remains a jewel!

Staying in Silom

Neighborhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
