“Great hotel for a first visit in Bangkok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

We have chosen the Shangri-La for our first trip in Bangkok and we have been very satisfied. First of all, we ordered a car with driver who picked us at the airport in very good conditions. Then the room with a balcony had a fantastic view on the main river of the city. The swimming pool is a delicious place and you have very good meals at the restaurant. Last but not least, you are at a five minutes walking distance of the Sathon Pier to go around and visit Bangkok.
All in all a great remember our 3 nights stay at Shangri-La Bangkok !

As a regular to Bangkok I always enjoy the Shangri La experience. Comfortable rooms, efficient service and good food. Also nice pocket of Bangkok by the river. Great leisure facilities with nice pool. Overall whilst it is expensive it is still one of the best business hotel experiences in the City. The only thing it lacks is a bar with atmosphere but there is no shortage of these locally.

We stayed 3 nights at the Shangri-La Hotel in Bangkok in a Deluxe-River-View-Room on the 17th floor. After a long flight we were glad that our room was ready - at 9 o clock in the morning.
We enjoyed the view across the river at day and night. The room was spacious and clean with a sitting area at the huge window. The Bathroom comes with a large shower and a bathtub as well. We especially enjoyed the large King-Bed with soft pillows and a very very comfortable (not too hard) mattress.
Staff was nice, although not prepared to offer vegetarian dinner-recommendations and some other detailed questions.
Leafy Pool area is facing the river, we preferred the Hotel pool-area to the Krunthep Wing Pool- area. From the Shangri-La you can travel by boat to various sights (starts right outside the hotel, 5 min. walk) or take the sky train (5 min. walk as well.)
For the price of less than 200 euro (without breakfast, so we cannot say anything about the food quality) we definitely recommend staying at the Shangri-La in Bangkok.

Nice pool and fitness with great staff.
Room slightly dated, a bit worn.
Buffet breakfast expansive but staff a bit overworked.
Front desk check in staff quite rigid and without any flexibility , quite different than other 5 star Bangkok hotels. Overall, Shangri-La is a bit expensive.

We stayed in The Shangri La on the last night of our holiday. It was wonderful from check in to check out, the staff did everything possible to make our stay memorable, including chocolates and flowers for our 40th Wedding Anniversary. The Breakfast Buffet had everything you could want at breakfast.
We will certainly stay here again if we're in Bangkok

We stayed in the Shangri-La wing for 5 nights in February and loved it. We chose a balcony room with a river view and loved sitting out in the evening watching all the lights and activity up and down the river. The rooms are very well appointed and maintained. Location is awesome as you have a brief walk through the hotel to the skytrain and of course the river is right there. Just outside the hotel on the little street outside the lobby are several excellent restaurants and easy access to shopping. The food at the hotel is amazing, however I think the buffets are a little pricey. The Thai restaurant at the hotel is incredible with great service and a place you should visit at least once for a fancy meal. We splurged for the limo to and from the airport and the service was exceptional. They don't just take you to the airport but they whisk you through check in and see you all the way to the security checkpoint, the Shangri-La knows service. Great place and I'd definitely stay there again.
