We have stayed at Shangri La several times over the years and it was very opulent and grand years ago, and it is sad to report that it seemed a little tired once inside, dirty carpets, worn walls etc.
Saying that service at front desk was very good. We stayed in the Horizon Club. We felt that the room wasn't anything special, it needs a bit of TLC. The Club lounge was okay. Again, felt more casual than grand as we remembered it.
The shower tray kept filling up which meant I had to get out quick and the taps were leaking to give you an idea.
We had a lovely gesture of chocolates from the manager to congratulate us on our anniversary which was a pleasant surprise.
We did have wonderful views of the river and the bed was very comfortable as always. We remembered this hotel as being a great base, but somehow forgot that it was a 15 minute walk to the Sky train station. It was a very long walk through the hotel to the Krungthep Wing which is much closer to the BTS - about 5 minute walk - so stay there if you want easy access! We opted to take taxis in the evening as traffic wasn't too bad.
We chose to have breakfast in the main dining area and it was a generous varied spread right by the river.
I don't think we will stay here again just because of the location and until we hear the hotel has been refurbished.
