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
Due to Intercontinental ambassador membership got upgraded to an executive room with club access, which was naturally a nice surprise. The club was very nice with good food and excellent service. Room was also very nice and luxurious. Good location if planning to visit Central World shopping center.
Hotel staff were all incredibly pleasant. Rooms were clean. Breakfast and all food was great. Staff made everything about the stay seamless. We never had to worry about the language barrier or any food substitutions or anything like that. Would absolutely recommend.
Our family of 4 stayed for a week in late May 2019.
Our room on level 29 was large and kept clean with the daily housekeeping and turndown. There was ample space for my children to run around even after having an additional baby cot. There was a seperate shower area and bath tub inside the bathroom. We also used the pool daily during our stay there and it wasn't too crowded. The lifeguard was very friendly to my children as well.
We had pre-requested for baby cot and other baby amenities and were given an email confirmation that the items were in before check-in, but they were not. It wasn't a big issue as the items were swiftly delivered after a call to the guest services. However, there was another occasion where our call to guest services was left unattended when we wanted help with a restaurant reservation. I am guessing this is a large property and service is less personable. In all, the staff we met at breakfast, lift lobby and around the hotel were friendly and helpful. Some even voluntarily carried our baby pram up and down the steps.
The best part of this property has got to be its location. We were minutes away from the main shopping belt of bangkok, and could make use of the BTS Sky Walk to get to Central World, Siam Paragon and even Platinum.
I would definitely consider InterCon during my next visit to the city.
Very strategically located hotel which has a MRT station right at its doorstep.
The hotel is surrounded by interconnected malls via the sheltered walkways of the mrt system making it a shopping haven.
Plenty of bustle-round-the-clock kinda location.
My partner spent a week here on business while I spent 3 leisurely nights.
The Intercontinental boasts ample-space and luxury.
The staff were courteous, attentive and friendly.
Most staff speak commendable English.
Some were unable to communicate well with us due to the language barrier.
The room was pleasant enough and spacious. There is a pillow menu available for guests to choose from for customized comfort.
We chose to dine in on a few occasions, a brunch, 2 lunches and a late supper.
Service was very good but the in-room dining (food) left much to be desired.
The main dishes were good (ask for their recommended dishes) but the desserts ordered on every occasion were truly disappointing, taste-wise.
The breakfast buffet boasts a wide array of cuisine. The lattes we had was good but weak.
Guests may ask for newspapers which are available upon request.
I enjoyed a quiet weekday morning coffee and papers sans children and it was just the ticket for some much needed rest and relaxation!
The gym is spacious, extensive and caters for a large number of fitness enthusiasts.
There were many trainers in the gym to assist with equipments snd even lessons on-going on the several occasions I was there.
While performing strength training, guests have a beautiful view of a golf range.
On the otherside where the cardio machines are decked, guests have a city view which comes alive at night.
Overall, a good experience at the Intercontinental.
Was here for a short stay, the location of this hotel is just a few minutes walk from Chidlom bts and opposite of four faces Buddha which make everything seem convenient. The service from the staff were excellent as well. Overall, the price we paid was worth it.
