We stayed at the Siam Kempinski for 6 nights in early July.
We were met at the airport by their Representative who, at our request, facilitated purchase of local sim cards at the airport. We arrived at the hotel and were greeted with cold wet towels and a welcome drink. Then, we were immediately taken to our rooms (an Executive Suite and connecting Executive Room) on the 5th Floor.
Rooms were cool and clean with a basket of exotic fruit and chocolate truffles(for the Suite).
Each room had a huge interactive TV. Wifi was free and very fast.
The concierge was very helpful and managed to get us a booking on the Manohara Cruise the same evening (with a discount). He also gave us very good shopping and sight seeing tips.
All the staff were very welcoming and made us feel like we were part of a family.
The hotel is surrounded by malls (Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery, Siam centre, CentralWorld)
CentralWorld is about a 10min walk, but worth it as it is much cheaper than the Siam's.
The hotel provides a buggy ride to and from Centralworld (if you want to escape the scorching heat) and also to the BTS Station.
The friendliness and welcoming nature of the staff was also apparent at the Executive Lounge where free High Tea and Cocktails are offered.
One thing that lets this hotel down, is their breakfast facility. It is a small cramped up restaurant with a very minimal spread and a small egg menu. Here, I am sorry to say, the staff were not as efficient as we had to repeat our order for hot coffee/tea twice before they got it right. Maybe this is because they are very busy and do not speak very good English....
We started having our Breakfasts at the Executive Lounge where the menu is pretty much the same, but the service is the best I have come across.
Overall, we had an excellent stay and definately recommend this hotel.
