Reviewed February 1, 2014

Very comfortable beautiful hotel. We had a lovely room overlooking the river with a small balcony. Great views. All the service you would expect. Pool was beautiful. Dinner at the River Cafe was good. Beautiful breakfast buffet. Not sure I would return here or try something with a more accessible location.

Dear Evelyn,

Greetings from Bangkok. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your time with us, from the river view in your balcony room to your time spent relaxing by The Pool and dining at River Cafe & Terrace. You get the best of both worlds at The Peninsula Bangkok, with our proximity and access (avoid the traffic with our Peninsula Boat and the BTS skytrain station) to the city centre while being located on the shores of the Chao Praya River.

We hope to have the privilege of welcoming you back soon.

Best Regards,
Mark Choon
Hotel Manager

We had a very nice stay at the Peninsula over New Year's. A comfortable hotel, a big tall building with many rooms, with friendly and competent staff. But somehow not quite special; our room was a bit small and dated, some of the hotel common spaces like the bar and pool were a little limited. But then again this is a city hotel in Bangkok and we were quite comfortable, so no complaint.

The hotel's location is good but idiosyncratic. It's just on the "wrong" side of the river, on the west side away from everything. In a way this is a blessing, it's a nice remove and you have a great view. Also they have a terrific ferry boat service to get across to the BTS Taksin station with at most a 5 minute wait. Just be sure to carry taxi instructions in Thai with you and be prepared for it to take a few extra minutes to get places. Great access to boats and trains once you cross on their nice little boats.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor for the view.

Dear Nelson_Mi,

Gong hei fat choi! Happy Year of the Horse! We are happy to hear that you chose to stay with us over New Year's and had an opportunity to try many of our services. I'm not sure if you had a chance to stay in one of our newly renovated guestrooms which provide a more contemporary feeling while staying true to our Thai-inspired designs. We pride ourselves on being Bangkok's true urban resort and you are correct in that being on this side of the river affords us magnificent views of the city. As you experienced, there is nothing more unique than catching one of our Peninsula Boats to the BTS skytrain station, a short ride away from the centre of town.

We hope to be able to welcome you back to The Peninsula Bangkok in 2014.

Best Regards,
Mark Choon

Nothing fancy or spectacular but an extremely well delivered comfort with impeccable service. The riverside restaurant is perfect. A well oiled machine that deserves its reputation of excellence. A very good choice.

What a great hotel. 37 floors overlooking the river in central Bangkok. Check in was easy and fast and you can do your own express checkout via a form they give you the night before. The rooms are spacious and house everything you could possibly want. If you can't find it you just keep looking because it's definitely there. There are brilliant controls at the side of the bed that are so easy to use. Does the lights, TV, radio, opens and closes the curtain which was brilliant. We had great views over the river and these are particularly lovely at night. The pool area is long and divided into two areas which has a quiet end. The pool staff are attentive and it's possible to eat either by your lounger or little tables dotted about.

The hotel has three restaurants. The Thipthara is by the riverside and serves delicious authentic Thai food. It's best to book here as popular. The Riverside Terrace is for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The buffets served here are simply phenomenal for both breakfast and dinner. In fact the best buffet I've ever had and with a massive choice of both western and oriental meals. The hotel also has a chinese fine dining restaurant which is inside but we didn't try it. The Peninsula like most of the good hotels on the river have beautiful little junks that sail back and forth between the two banks of the river and are free. In the evening this is a particularly quick alternative to taking a taxi over the bridge if dining on this side of the river and you only have to walk a few yards the other side to hail a cab.

Room Tip: We were on the 8th floor in rooms 805 and 808 and overlooked the river. They're not at all far...

Great hotel with lovely smelling fresh rooms. The staffs were very helpful and spoke great English, which is a good thing because most Hotel executives across the breath of Bangkok, doesn’t speak good English. The hotel was great and offered a spectacular view. Located very close to most of the city’s attraction, one gets to travel around in Bangkok with much ease. Me and my wife stayed here recently at our Bangkok trip, to meet some of our very old friends studying at Bangkok. The riverside restaurant was great and offered some nice food. The menu had diverse international options which served us very well. We had been staying at Bangkok and had been filling ourselves with Asian food. Wanted a break and the restaurant offered us exactly what we wanted.

Excellent hotel in every respect.
Great location across the river from the busy streets of Bangkok.
The hotel shuttle boat takes you across the river or down to the Sky Train, so getting about is not difficult.

Room Tip: Higher floors give great views of the city and river.

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us regarding your visit last November. We are glad that you have considered our hotel as a true "urban oasis", as it just a short stop away from the centre of town via our Peninsula riverboats and the Skytrain system. We look forward to seeing you again in Bangkok in the near future.
