Granted that shangrila Bangkok is the first 5 star hotel we stayed in (5 star in other parts of the world are just too costly for us middle class casual holiday makers), the experience is simply amazing. Where do I start - 24 hour room service with a wide selection of culinary options are superb, on the first night we arrived we ordered pizza and soup at wee hour of the morning which were awesome quality, and another early morning at 5 we ordered breakfast due to having to leave at 6am for a tour. And interestingly the pineapple fried rice from room service were even better than the same dish served in their Thai restaurant :)
Room clean up seems to be done every time we leave the room even for 20 minutes, and morning paper selection wasa awesome too-they printed the paper from commercial sites when it's not available from local outlets.
The tours available from the concierge isn't huge though, and are generally costly private tours. However this isn't really an issue since we can always go to khao Shan rd and book any tour. Free river boat to asiatique is great too.
We stayed in balcony rooms with stunning view both directions of the river - simply breathtaking. Only cost a little over the standard room, highly highly recommended. Huge and well appointed shower and bath with full marble appointment. Free wifi and fruit basket is very thoughtful too.
Spa is at the expensive side, always visit a cheaper local massage if you r after value.
All in all I don't know hiw service can be improved over the exceptional quality of this hotel. Will love to go back again!
