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
This hotel is a typical City hotel probably used by business and tourist visitors alike. The hotel has good facilities indoor and outdoor pools, gym and spa and three places to eat. The ladies serving in the metropolitan bar were super friendly and helpful. We used the hotel as a base to do the touristy things, the palace and temples, the river and Jim Thompson’s residence and museum regarding Thai silk. A really interesting place to visit and a real mystery regarding Jim’s disappearance. The sky train is really easy to use.
I would recommend this hotel
The Sukhothai or Mandarin Oriental is strong competition but nonetheless COMO Metropolitan holds its ground more than fairly. Rooms are of ample size, service is delicate & efficient, the lobby decoration makes you feel well and zen immediately upon checking. Nan thaï restaurant is of excellent quality -including b’fast.
Visit without hesitation.
Your faithful reviewer
We stayed 8 nights there, everything is up to a 5-star hotel: the room, the cleanliness, the services, the wifi, the in-room dining, the spa (swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam bath).
It is conveniently located near Lumphini Park, 10 mins on foot to several skytrain stations.
I think the breakfast could have a wider choice of foodstuffs, and the restaurant is too expensive for what it is.
Our room was very spacious, modern and clean. I love the yummy breakfast (lobby area). A lot of choices of different foods. It was so nice that the chef came by at every table. He made us feel so special. All the employee were so friendly and welcome you with a smile. Excellent!!!
COMO Metropolitan Bangkok is a lovely hotel which provides a great place to relax from the hectic streets of Bangkok. I stayed before and after a trip to Bhutan and the hotel arranged airport transfers made the trip very seamless. The COMO staff are very friendly and helpful. My Metropolitan room was spacious and quiet. An enjoyable stay
