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 enjoyed my brief stay at the intercon, first time here, everything worked as hoped. Fairly Speedy check in. Nice enough bed, hot water. Ok breakfast although they could improve the bacon. All in all a good stay. Can't complain.
Love the ambience and the buffet spread. The rooms were really good and very close to the city centre also close to the metro train station. The staff were really good. I would truly recommend this hotel for stay.
I would have given this hotel a 4 star on service by the concierge, location of hotel a 5 star but unfortunately check in brings it down.
I signed up as an Ambassador member to enable use of late check out and free room upgrade. I was not provided with the room upgrades and the benefits accordingly. In addition the check in staff struggled to communicate effectively which required the manager to step in. I was extremely frustrated on finding out also that my room choice I selected was not considered initially.
Breakfast service was slow but a good spread and difficulty to be understood.
Loved the location and the concierge service.
That was my first stay at InterCon Bangkok, and definitely not last. I opted for a Club Room and was pretty happy about it. Special thanks to Tanat who made my check in and check out experience as smooth as possible (that's an important factor after/prior to long flights. Breakfasts and happy hours at the 37th floor is quite a fancy thing to have. Dining there let's you enjoy not only the food variety but also a nice view of the city's skyline. Another batch of thanks goes to Vinitra (Pam), Punnisa, Parkin, Chonticha and the rest of the Club staff. I'm planning to come back to Thailand soon and have absolutely no doubts which hotel I'm going to pick for that trip. Especially since I have yet to check out their outdoor pool. For this, thank you Team InterCon Bangkok!
I have stayed here on and off ever since intercontinental took it on - probably 20 years ago. Previously I had loved the old Siam intercontinental. This hotel is well located, staff are friendly and the room spacious and clean. Everything works. But the best feature is the executive lounge. Great service throughout the day with a brilliantly catered evening drinks and canapés.
