This year we spent our Christmas holidays at the Okura Bangkok - we normally stay home and spend the time with friends and family. The hotel is beautiful and contemporary and extremely convenient. Although it is not directly on top or connected to one of the major shopping centres, it is very well connected and with great amenities. The BTS is just downstairs, together with internationally accessible ATMs, 7-11, Dean & Deluca, the hotel patisserie, Boots and a Mac store. There are also a few restaurants nearby too if you want to get out for a quick bite. Breakfast at Up & Above is FANTASTIC! Great variety and quality. We also had the choice of a Japanese breakfast too.
Generally kid friendly - restaurants have high-chairs, kids plate set, own toiletry set, slippers, teddy...and a special Thai Santa came too to deliver gifts to all the children. There are no kid facilities though (ie. playroom or activities).
Improvement suggestions would be to improve the interface/function of the room control panel - really bright light and beeps are sure to wake light sleeping babies. We had to press at least 6 times to shut all the lights off. And bathroom sliding panel should be totally opaque so that when parents want to take a shower after the kids have gone to bed it doesn't light up the room. We almost resorted to sitting in the closet after they finally fell asleep. Would also be nice to offer bed rails to prevent kids from falling off the bed.
However overall, we are very happy with our stay at the Okura and would be happy to recommend to any family wanting to visit Bangkok.
