We stayed at the Peninsula Bangkok for a brief 3 nights on our first trip to Bangkok this past September. Our expectations were exceeded regularly. Despite our international flight arriving over an hour early (5:30 AM) our previously arranged driver was at Suvarnabhumi Airport to greet us and whisk us by comfortable luxury sedan to the stunningly beautiful Peninsula.
Upon arriving at the hotel, we were greeted by a guest service representative and shown to our beautiful room on the 19th floor. There was a fruit and pastry basket waiting for us with a note welcoming our early arrival. Our room itself had a sweeping view of the Chao Praya river and was spacious, elegant, and well appointed. The location of the hotel was great--a short 2 minute ferry ride by the hotel shuttle boat takes you across the river to the Sky Train station, making the entire city instantly accessible. Cabs are cheap and plentiful and easy to direct back to the hotel.
Even though the Peninsula Bangkok comes with a price tag you'd expect from a five star luxury resort, we found it a great value. We took advantage of a promotion offering a complimentary night's stay, making our visit more affordable. Additionally, we were given several gift certificates to use for the hotel restaurants and spa during our visit.
The Peninsula Bangkok has frequently been voted one of the best hotels in the world, and it's easy to see why. The wonderful guest service, beautiful property, and luxurious amenities make it a peaceful haven in the vibrant city of Bangkok. We'll definitely stay again.
