The Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok is among the best hotels in the city for many reasons, one of which is that the hotel prohibits its security guards from using whistles when directing traffic to or from the busy main street and the side street on which the property is located.
Many other, less enlightened, Bangkok hotels, by contrast, require their traffic officers to use a whistle while directing traffic, which greatly increases the noise pollution in the city, and spoils guests' stays.

A stay at the Shangri-La will, consequently, be more relaxing than a stay at most other hotels in Bangkok, and is a vote for peace and quiet. No need for earplugs here!

Stayed three nights in Krungtep Wing, balcony room. Strong sense of exclusivity and personal, friendly service. Great service at poolside (except on the Sunday, where the waiter seemed a bit stretched), at reception and in the breakfast/afternoon tea area. In the Krung thep wing, most things are free - coffee and soft drinks at the pool, lovely afternoon tea, great breakfast (cooked to order, not a busy buffet), evening drinks. Nice touches like fresh mango served at pool. Rooms are a bit dated, and was missing a detachable shower, but liked the L'Occitane toiletries. Housekeeping was a bit slow, and rooms were one cleaned late afternoon. The only big disappointment was the balcony. Because one of the big bridges is next door, it was crazy noisy sitting out there. No noise in the room though, but we had booked this specifically because of the riverview balconies, so a shame. Not the hotel's fault, though. Would probably try another river hotel next time due to this - but would not be unhappy returning.

All the 5 star reviews are spot on.
This is 5 star treatment as you would expect!
Breakfast at Next2 is brilliant (the setting on the river edge is great too), the tea time snacks are enough as lunch and the predinner snacks and cocktails are enough as a dinner. We never seemed to stop eating! AND its all included! Its just brilliant.
I have been trying hard to thnik of something negative to say and the only thing I could come up with is that the water pressure in the shower was a bit week. Thats it!
The private pool is also a great place to rest and relax and it is so nice and quiet, unlike the main pool.
This is not a very helpful review! It was all just too good.

Room tip: Ask for a high floor to get a great view of the river.

My wife and I stayed in a suite (No. 1151) for 7 nights in October, 2012. We had previously stayed at The Hilton and the Peninsula but the Shangri la was a real surprise. The staff were fantastic and the amenities by staying in the Krunthep Wing made our stay more memorable. The dress code for evening cocktails was strictly enforced in a discreet manner(no shorts or flip flops). This is a good thing as a lot of Club floor lounges do not seem to wory what people wear. The range of food and presentation could not be faulted. The Wing we stayed in is 3-4 minutes from the railway and this makes it easier to travel up town. Anybody staying at this hotel should use the BMW sedans as the airport is quite a distance from town. The tarif at this hotel was the same as we paid for a 4 star hotel in Singapore.

Room tip: Suites are located closest to the railway and road traffic but the double glazing of windows makes it impossible to be distracted by noise.

Our hotel room overlooking the Chao Phraya was spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed watching the boat traffic on the river. The breakfast buffet is excellent and has a huge number of offerings. The only complaint I had during our four day stay was the spotty wifi service.
