With stylish swagger and a fresh, hip attitude, the Metropolitan Bangkok is emblematic of the contemporary transformation of the city’s business and shopping districts. The hotel impresses guests on arrival with its high-ceilinged lobby and minimalist feng shui. Light and dark contrasts are intricately woven into complementary geometric patterns, accented by subtle lipstick-red touches dreamed up by lauded interior designer Kathryn King.
Bed & Bath
As with other COMO properties, the room interiors are intentionally understated, with soothing white walls, light dichromatic artworks and cherrywood furnishings. Metropolitan Rooms are particularly airy and spacious, most notably in the colossal limestone-clad bathrooms.
The Met Bar is the antithesis of the wild nightlife scene Bangkok is known for. This polished bar is where the city’s socialites come to lounge and mingle. On the dining front, Nahm is the second outpost of the world’s only Michelin-starred Thai restaurant, while Glow showcases COMO Shambhala cuisine, possibly the tastiest and healthiest food you’ll ever try.
In the Area
Visit Bangkok’s most revered historic treasures, including the Grand Palace, the Temple of the Dawn (Wat Arun) and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Po). Experience the economic underbelly of Thailand with a ride through its floating markets. Damnoen Saduak (Klong Lat Phli) is a bit of a tourist trap. Others, like Bang Khu Wiang, Taling Chan and Tha Kha, are more authentic and rewarding. The Maeklong Railway Market is one of Bangkok’s craziest and busiest markets. Most of the stalls are on active train tracks. Watch the trains brush by the goods and the patrons, and stare in amazement when you seen there’s no bloody aftermath. It’s a photographer’s dream.
How to Get There
Amazing and helpful staff in a gorgeous hotel. Stunning pool and great location. Rooms are comfortable and modern with all the amenities you could hope for (and some you may not have considered!) Really enjoyed our stay!
Me and my Friend stayed for the weekend and we really liked this hotel. The pool was amazing and the service was great, very attentive. The only downside was we had a leak in our room on our last night and they didn’t offer anything off our bill, other than that, it was pretty spot on
We stayed three nights, and it is a lovely hotel. Would stay here again. Rooms are big and bathroom even bigger. Huge windows, bright and airy. Comfortable bed. Pool is big and a bit warmer than we wanted after a hot and humid walk around Bangkok, but nice all the same. Breakfast was good, fast service and the staff was welcoming and accommodating. Good location. We paid 300 baht for tuk-tuk from Palace area during the coronation, 10 US dollars, not bad for about a 10-15 minute ride across town. Very near the Silom Mall,7-10 minute easy walk. 5-10 minute walk from subway station, again easy walk. 7-11 right down the street for pop and snacks, beers, etc.
The hotel was modern with clean lines and somewhat minimalistic. The room was comfortable although I found the lighting to be inadequate. The soaking tub and large shower were wonderful.
I only had breakfast at the hotel but thought the food was very tasty and plentiful.
The staff was a high point with smiles and greetings from everyone.
Mr Boris Otto the front office manager was professional, courteous and helpful and exemplifies what excellent customer service should be.
I would also like to compliment Kareema Sana who was my server for breakfast throughout my stay she was very attentive.
All in all it was a very enjoyable stay.
Stayed one night in Bangkok for a short business trip and this Hotel was booked for us. Probably I would not have chose this myself, but in the end it was ok. Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. Rooms were large, but a bit dark (small windows) and the breakfast was a mix out of buffet and a la card which was ok. In summary, you can stay here, but just for a short stay and don't expect too much.
