“Perfect, as usual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Back in Switzerland, we want to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in the Mandarin Oriental. Our third visit to the Oriental was again a full success. Everything was perfect from the reception at the airport to the departure. Many thanks to all who made our stay more than agreeable. We were very pleased to stay in the John le Carre Suite and hope to have another opportunity to enjoy the Oriental in the next years.

Pure opulence as soon as you cross the threshold, the lobby has the most amazing array of exotic flowers with the gentle trickle of water and relaxing aromas. You just know you are so going to enjoy your experience.......

Grand charm of old and new. A little bit Scandinavian with Capt. Andersson? A dane from East Aseatic Company (I think) together with son of The english teacher from The King and I. I always have the barbecue by the river. The rooms are also fantastic. Service you can not get it better anywhere in the world today.

We ended up canceling a different hotel reservation for the Mandarin because of the ongoing protests in Bangkok. This place is perfect and lived up to its reputation.

Since we almost missed our connection at LAX our bags didn't make it to Bangkok. Thankfully, we had a change of clothes and toiletries. Anyways, upon checking in, the front desk asked for the baggage information so they could help track our bags down. In addition, they sent up an emergency kit for people who didn't have their luggage. Toiletries, underwear etc. So genius and nice.

The location is perfect and access to the water is so convenient. Rooms were clean, views of the river and overall great. We were there for only 3 days and the staff recognized us and greeted us warmly each time. They kept us up to date on our luggage tracking and made sure it was delivered promptly when it finally arrived.

I have never stayed at a Mandarin, but this place does the name justice. I would highly recommend anyone to stay there.

Please see separate reviews for The Cooking School and Le Normandie....

What can I say that has not already been said?
Heaven on earth quite simply...
From being picked up in the hotel car to being taken bake back to the airport...
Thank you to Mrs Hyndman and all staff for making our holiday and my husbands birthday so special...
One question, where have the bell hops at the elevator gone? Missed him!

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely but if you can get a river view you will not be disappointed
