“My residence in Bangkok”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Excellent upper scale hotel, conveniently located near Skytrain and along the River.

Service and welcome are omnipresent and have not changed since our first visit 10 years ago.

Upgrade to Horizon Club well worthy and offering excellent value, if you like luxury and grandeur. ( and Happy Hour cocktails and goodies with a breathtaking view ...)

It was somewhat quiet this time around due to the military coup, but let me assure you, Bangkok and Thailand have never been so peaceful and enjoyable as now.

Let this not put you back from booking, the news and media gave an extremely exaggerated image of the situation, which was not honest towards travellers and Thais alike.

Looking forward to be back !

Rarely disappointed with the Shang or Traders and this was no exception. Great position on the river. River view room was excellent. Clean and comfortable with excellent service. I dropped my wallet in the hallway and the room maid found it and me and brought it back. I really appreciate their honesty. Its a bit more expensive than some but worth it.

Came here with the family to start of the Thailand vacation. The hotel is beautiful and definitely one of the better Shangri-La hotel. Also when talking value. We stayed in the Horizon Club rooms which were very modern and spacious. You check-in in the club on the upper floor which is very nice and easy. The club is also used for breakfast and Happy Hour.

All in all I'm very satisfied with the hotel and especially with its truly friendly staff.

Definetly recommend it to anybody that wants a great view and location in Bangkok.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view of chao praya (that'll be the Horizon Club rooms)

Can't fault the staff, rooms, facilities etc, it was just very quiet when we went which affected the atmosphere, especially of an evening when bars and restaurants were deserted. Much is due to Europeans keeping away with news of the coup and unrest. None seen by us, all seemed calm and safe. It's wonderfully located on the river with easy access to boat, train and taxi/tuk-tuk transportation. River travel is the best.

Room on 19th floor had fantastic views of the city and river. Wedding reception took place in the hotel on first night. As we stood in the foyer we watched the guests ballroom dancing to Blue Moon. We spent our first afternoon around the pool area drinking the excellent cocktails and roasted peanuts with garlic and watching the boats collecting and dropping off guests.Nothing is too much effort for the staff and they make you feel very important. Rooms are luxurious and they had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. I love this hotel.

Room Tip: No need to ask for an upgrade as they select the best room for you.

We stayed here in June 2014 on our first visit to Bangkok. The hotel was extremely clean and well presented. Complimentary boat rides down the river to asiatique are a nice touch and the staff were very friendly (as is common for Thailand!). Would definitely recommend staying here!
