“Shangri La Hotel Bangkok - Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

We spent seven fantastic nights at the Bangkok Shangri La. There were fabulous views of the Chao Phraya river and cityscape from our high-floor balcony room. The bed, room and housekeeping services were all outstanding.

The Horizon Club service was superb with refreshing drinks and light snacks available anytime and hot food and cocktails nightly. They staff was very helpful and eager to please. We also had a fantastic dinner at the on-property Salathip Thai restaurant that also featured a great Thai dancing demonstration. The on-property Next2 restaurant had a wide variety of very good Asian and Western food choices and fantastic views of the river with both indoor and outdoor seating. Even the lobby bar had fantastic river views and is a great place to have lunch or a drink.

We arranged several private tours through the hotel and they were fantastic. The temple and floating market tours were amazing. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and did a great job of conveying historical context and cultural significance to the beautiful sites we visited. We saw so much more and gained a great understanding by having a private guide.

The river side location is scenic and relaxing while at the same time very convenient to the adjacent MRT station and public dock. From the MRT station you have quick and easy access to much of the city while avoiding the legendary rush hour traffic. The public dock has access to water taxi's and to a highly recommended and inexpensive tourist river boat. It stops at many of the main tourist sites while avoiding city traffic. The private Shangri La dock has a complimentary private shuttle boat that visits River City during the day and Asiatique in the evening.

The service was truly outstanding and the management and staff made our visit fantastic from our arrival to the hotel car service to the airport.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Choose a higher balcony room to experience the best combination of panoramic city and river views.

Stayed at the hotel for 7 nights, was one of the best vacations in bkk. Was attending my cousins wedding, so were about 200 guests. My room was on the 17th floor with direct views of the chAo Phraya river. Breakfast was included and was a widespread selection. The restaurants like Angelini was very well done up and the food was tasty. The hotel had several lounge areas where one could just laze around and have tea/cocktails watching the sunset. We had booked the Horizon cruise as a welcome dinner for the guests. Was a fun experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were just a call away for anything we needed. The location of the hotel was gd and was close by to the famous sky bar sirocco which is on the 65th floor of the Le Bua state tower. I highly recommend the shangrila for a business or family trip. The club rooms were excellent with direct excess to the club lounge. Also the health club and gym facilities were up to the mark.

Room Tip: The club rooms on the higher floors have great views of the river.

Great business hotel with a nice pool area in case family is traveling along. Location on the river is pretty. Service is up to western standards but includes Thai warmth and hospitality. Very nice gym. Nice rooms. Free wifi.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a river view

Three superb nights at the Shangri-La in a river view with balcony room. Superb views, great swimming pool/terrace area to relax during the day; great breakfast; superb view and relaing ambience in the lobby bar and most of all a really welcoming and helpful Hotel team to make sure your stay goes well.
Think it impossible to truly relax in this City? I used to think so...that was before i stayed at Shangri La

We stayed for our second visit after a great trip last year. The Shangri la Bangkok is consistent in providing the flight weary traveler with optimum peace and service to make the holiday experience come to life. We stayed in a Horizon Club room with club access for breakfast, drinks during the day and a wonderful selection of cocktails and canapes of an evening. The quality on offer and the service of the girls in the Horizon club is outstanding. On arrival we were escorted to the horizon club to complete check in formalities and enjoyed a cup of coffee while the paper work was done. We were informed that an outside booking we had made had contacted the hotel and was confirming our appointment. this was done speedily and with no nonsense. The Horizon Club made the booking for us at Sala Thip the in house Thai restaurant for later in the evening where we enjoyed a Thai banquet while watching Thai dancers perform at our table. All this with fantastic views of the Chao praya river.
After an evening out we were ready for lounging by the magnificent pool with attentive pool boys bringing cooling drinks.
Once again thank You Shangri la for completing our visit to Thailand on a high.

Room Tip: Book an Horizon Club room and request 24th floor
