The location, the attention to detail and friendly service made the Oriental one of my best stays in Bangkok. Already first step into the hotel and you are greeted with beautiful smells of the many exotic flower garlands decorating the foyer... Not the biggest or the poshest of the reception lobbies but modestly elegant and welcoming. The rooms are well equipped and reflect the old charm of the hotel but the main building, an obvious addition to the historic construction, does not unfortunately do justice to the history of the place. Staff is generally friendly and the floor butlers are bending over backwards to serve you and make you feel truly special... General quality of restaurants and quality and variety of food could definitely be better and does somewhat let this otherwise very enjoyable hotel down. Overall I will certainly recommend Mandarin Oriental for business as well as private visitors...
