I stayed in a duplex pool entry room with my husband and two sons (aged 7 and 4yrs). We have visited Bangkok many times and each time try to experience a different hotel. This trip I chose the Siam Kempinski mostly for its location, but it turned out to be perfect for so many more reasons.
The room was perfect because it allowed my husband and I to have the privacy of an upstairs adults retreat with full bathroom and living room and the children to have downstairs which also had its own bathroom and television etc. The hotel staff had set-up two rollaway beds in front of the television and the boys were in heaven.
Direct pool access was another valuable addition. We were able to sit on our little deck and watch the boys swimming right outside our room. No need to drag towels and sunscreen etc through the corridors of the hotel.
The room came with free minibar and club lounge access. We had breakfast every morning in the club lounge and the staff were very attentive and kind to our children. The club lounge also offered excellent canapes and drinks in the evening. There was a sandwich bar which is not something I have seen before.
The one thing the Siam Kempinski offers families, which to my knowledge no other hotel in Bangkok does, is free kids club. The staff in the kids club were lovely and available to babysit outside of the kids club hours at a very reasonable price (half that of some of the other Bangkok hotels we have stayed at).
Another huge bonus was that the gym is open 24hrs. When the children woke me at 3.30am (6.30am in Australian time) I was able to do an early morning workout in an empty gym - heaven!
Finally, I must comment on the location. Being in the middle of some of Bangkok's best shopping made it super easy to duck out for short shopping trips without spending long periods of time in traffic getting there and back. The location also places you in the midst of some amazing restaurants, both fine dining and casual. The Siam Aquarium is in the Siam Paragaon next door and we spent a half day there. The kids loved it and it was so nice to be able to return to our hotel within minutes when we had finished.
If you are travelling with children you will not regret choosing the Siam Kempinski. It is the perfect hotel for adults and children.
