Don’t let the cold, gray granite exterior of InterContinental Bangkok deceive you; beyond it’s hard exterior lies a comfortable, luxurious setting. Beyond the enormous crystal chandelier that hangs from the lobby ceiling, everything else in the hotel is swathed in subtle gray tones, exuding a private-club feel. Not forgetting its Southeast Asian roots, the hotel has peppered its public spaces and rooms with classic Thai artwork that blends immaculately with the elegant ambiance.
Bed and Bath
The hotels’ 420 rooms are splashed in light grey accents and earth tones, featuring carpeted flooring and cushy upholstered paneling. Aesthetics aside, you’ll appreciate the practicality of the room’s amenities, be it the curved lounger perfect for sipping a sundowner with a view, or the glass-topped desk and rolling leather chair when it comes to business. Ask for a room on a high floor, as the oversize windows open up to a bird’s eye view of Bangkok’s skyline. Bathrooms — spa-like sanctuaries with marble tiled flooring, glass-enclosed rain showers, and shiny bath tubs — are equally impressive.
InterContinental Bangkok provides guests with five in-house dining options – from high tea at the vintage-inspired Balcony Lounge to Bangkok’s best steak at Fireplace Grill to famous dim sum at Summer Palace. The Humidor, draped in brown leather, teak walls and black-and-white portraits, is a hot spot to enjoy some of the world’s best cigars. And designed with Southeast Asian flair, Spa InterContinental focuses on recharging guests with traditional Thai treatments in a serene setting.
In the Area
With its central location, the hotel stands at the crossroads of the city’s major shopping centers, temples and food streets. Start a visit with an early-morning walk to Wat Pratumwanaram to give the monks food offerings or head to the famous Erawan Shrine, known for bringing good luck and fortune. For a refreshing experience, stroll over to Lumpini Park, Bangkok’s largest public park and get away from the raucous traffic and crowds. To kick back and indulge in Bangkok’s cosmopolitan vibes, the Skywall connects you directly to many of the city’s biggest department stores, such as Siam Square, Central World and Siam Paragon.
How to Get There
I spent a week pure vacation with my wife at the Intercontinental Bangkok. Everything was perfect from limousine service upon arrival at the airport to personal welcome and check in at the Club. Cocktail evening at the Club is fantastic with a great variety of food and excellent selection of wines. Pool and service at the pool were perfect. We want to thank personally Mr Tanaphat and Mr Yuttiana for their kindness and professionalism: their service at the pool is perfect, you do not need to ask, they anticipate your wishes. Last but not least a very personal thank you to Thane Kuhlman, the Hotel GM who found many occasions to exchange some kind words with us and to Clive Murray the Regional General Manager for IHG Thailand who took the time to spend one evening with us. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone willing to spend some time in Bangkok.
This is not my first time in Bangkok but it has been best time ever in BKK when I chose to stay at Club lounge InterContinental BKK from my Hongkok friend advertising. I was told that the hotel is located at the center and at most convenience hotel in town,club lounge service and staff is very nice and Italian restaurant also tasted and quality equally to mother branch. Also my friend asked me to find Thai lady staff who wears the highest heels in the hotel who is also very nice and her service is exceptional. No doubt my family and I are really happy with hotel,room maid,restaurants,and especially service provided by Ms. Fairy at Club lounge. She has multiple skills and various of knowledge insider experience and those could be answered to our requirement perfectly. We had an enjoyable sightseeing trip in BKK and nearby,shopping idea,and experience in very authentic Thai restaurant from her recommendation.Thank again to her service and will definitely come back again!!!
OMG this is amazing place, the staff very helpful and friendly, my favorite is mango juice, the rooftop pool bar also amazing. i was so enjoyed my holiday here, just enjoyed the hotel facility and i won’t go out from the hotel.🥰 thank you Intercontinental Bangkok.
Greeted as a Platinum member and upgraded to larger room and got free breakfast. Receptionist was best I've ever had at any IHG property. Breakfast was wonderful and worth paying for if not included, despite the price. Pool not huge but big enough and fun. Gym good too. All staff friendly throughout hotel and room was wonderful with great view. Located on walkway from Chit Lom so super convenient. Cannot recommend this place more.
Excellent room for a family. We travelled with 2 kids and booked the 2 queen bed rooms. The beds were big enough for all 4 of us and the rooms were extremely spacious with good views.
The service is simply second to none. From being greeted at the door, to check-in (a special desk for IHG loyalty members) to breakfast where everyone was so polite, attentive, efficient and smiley. Lovely, lovely staff.
The location is superb for kids as you can go straight from the hotel to Gaysorn plaza and then onto the sky walk to central world (superb play areas) and Paragon. We never had to push our prams across roads etc.
The roof-top pool is lovely. Because it is quite small they did not allow our kids to play with any of their toys, so in that sense it is not the best pool ever for children. That being said, out kids still really enjoyed it. I did not use the gym as my focus was on eating for the few days we were there, but it looked superb.
The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had.
I think the location for shopping is as good as it gets in BKK, but what stands out for me is the service. No one does service better than the Thais but still, the staff at this hotel stood out for their non-intrusive, pleasant and gentle efficiency. It simply could not be better,
