“Cool, smart, well located and helpful”
Reviewed April 5, 2010

For a city centre hotel, this really hit the mark and exceeded expectations. Staff spoke excellent english and were able to help with our enquiries - how best to get to the weekend market, did they have a plug adaptor, where best to get a quick late lunch, was it walkable to the metro station (it is).

Rooms were large and impressions of the reception areas were good - usual smart boutique hotel fare, plus friendly staff. Right next door to the Banyan Tree rooftop bar (fab, NB dress code). I'd stay here again.

When it opened, the MET was the jewel of BKK. It was exclusive, hip, glamorous and all the "A list" people where arriving to the MET BAR to spent a great evening.
Nowadays, the hotel has lost its glory. The lobby is empty, the met bar is sad and abandoned and the once so beautiful rooms look tired, old and to me a bit depressing.

Today, the only thing going for the Met is its excellent value for money. In my eyes this is sad, to see a style icon turn into a "practical choice", but if that's what you are looking for - it's a damn good practical choice.

Overall, great hotel, with excellent staff.
Chic, contemporary look.
Very efficient check-in, with tea delivered to room on arrival a nice touch.
Room well-equipped but a bit small (seemed to be the smallest on the floor - room 811). Having said that, bargain rate of US$99 per night meant I could hardly complain.
Very good breakfast.
Excellent gym.
Food in Glow organic restaurant very good.
Decent spa, with pretty good masseurs/masseuses. OK prices for a 5 star city centre hotel.
Description of spa treatments in bedroom didn't match the actual treatment in the spa, which was frustrating (ended up having effectively the same treatment 2 days running, which was not the intention). However, once explained to the Duty Manager, received decent apology, got 50% off the second treatment, and as I happened to be in the restaurant when they explained how they had resolved the issue, they also gave me 15% off that meal, which was an exceptional (and unexpected) gesture.

This was the perfect choice for us, we found a very good deal online. It was absolutely value for money. The hotel is a bit hidden from the main street which is great and has a lovely pool, sun is rare but we managed to time it to come back after exploring the city to catch some sun and chill before dipping back into the nightlife.

Very good location for Lumpini night market and Silom. Would go back again.

Check out the Banyan tree roof top bar next door.

What a wonderful hotel, great staff and we loved the location.
We stayed in the Metropolitan Room and the bed was comfortable and plenty of room.
The staff could not have been more helpful.
We loved the location, it was an easy walk to the Skytrain.
We stay at the Metropolitan next time in Bangkok.

The Metropolitan is absolute hotel perfection. The young, funky, good looking staff bend over backwards to help, yet are completely unobtrusive and have none of the stuffy formality of chain five star hotels. They were more than happy to go out and get us tickets to a music festival on the night we arrived and a dinner reservation at Bo Lai the next night. The lobby exudes style with its high ceiling, clean lines and funky house music. (No cheesy piano player singing Sting covers in the corner at this hotel!!). There's free wifi in the lobby too.

Out Metropolitan room was as huge and peaceful as all the other reviews attest. The large bathroom was just beautiful and the amenities really are worth souveniring - it's rare to have such high quality toiletries on offer in hotel bathrooms. We didn't hear a sound from the corridor or neighbouring rooms. Housekeeping do an incredible job on their twice daily visits to the room, replenishing cloud like towels and making the bed with the finest Egyptian cotton sheets I've ever slept between. The bed was extremely comfortable and big enough to get lost on.

Breakfast in Cyan is a definite step up from typical chain hotel buffet mediocrity. There is still a buffet selection of fruits, cold cuts, bircher museli, cereals, yoghurt, bread, pastries and juice while hot dishes which are far more immaginitive than bacon and eggs are ordered a la carte.

The pool area is great. The pool is a good size at 20 metres, drink service is prompt and friendly - try the devine Met Belnd juice; beetroot, passionfruit and carrot - and all the beautiful people in the pool loungers are checking out their wallpaper* or Luxe guides to Bangkok deciding which restaurants and clubs to go to when night falls.

The location is quite convenient. Silom Rd is only a 10 minute walk and there's a metro station 5 minutes away. Of course taxis in Bangkok are plentiful and dirt cheap. Some drivers don't know the Metropolitan, but most do know the Banyan Tree next door. Hotel staff can also give you a card with the address in Thai and a little map. The Lumpini night market is also only 5 minutes away. There has been a marked increase in the number of funky young designers selling clothes, as well as the usual tourist souvenirs and tatt.

Finally the spa treatments deserve special mention. We both had the 90 minute signature treatment which was simply heavenly. The environment of the spa and the changerooms with mosaic jacuzzi and steamroom is a million miles from the noise, dust and fumes of Bangkok just outside.

I wouldn't even contemplate staying anywhere else on subsequent visits to Bangkok. The Metropolitan is simply everything a hotel should be.

Sleek, bright, and spacious. Nice chill vibe throughout the whole place despite being so close to the main road. Gorgeous, large open rooms with lots of light. Bathroom toiletries to die for. Very helpful and friendly staff without being obtrusive. Both Cyan and Glow restaurants serve very clean, fresh and vibrant food. Could get quite noisy in the morning though with all the room doors opening and closing. Also, no free wifi except for the lobby which can be quite a hassle. Overall, a fabulous experience. Will definitely come back/
