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 is always my preferred hotel in Bangkok because of the staff and the service. I stay here regularly and prefer it. Earlier this year I stayed at the new Park Hyatt at Central Embassy which I did enjoy but I prefer the COMO Metropolitan. The COMO always treat me like family, remember my name and offer excellent service. The hotel is a clean, minimal style and the rooms are large and spacious. I usually prefer a Metropolitan Room.
The yoga & fitness center are great and the Spa and swimming pool are large & excellent. Location is convenient & the restaurant NAHM is one of the best in Asia.
Very comfy stylish hotel, not posh at all, with a very homey feeling. Staff is -even to Asian standards- extremely friendly, attentive and helpful. Spacious rooms, great shower, fresh fruit every day....and all this at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended
This was a fantastic boutique hotel in Bangkok that our tour arranged. The rooms were so spacious and well appointed. The staff were all knowledgeable, friendly and warm. Breakfast was delicious. Great experience and would highly recommend. Especially for the price.
Stayed at the COMO for 5 weeks during a business trip. I was warmly welcomed and felt at home, was given rooms to choose from for the long stay. Staff knew me and did anything to make me feel comfortable - they even made ginger tea and brought it to my room when I caught a cold, and delivered room service from the Nahm restaurant that doesn't do room service, made sure a sun lounger at the pool was available, that I would have a taxi to go to work every morning, and much more.
Rooms are very comfortable even for a longer stay. Design is clean and inobtrusive. Breakfast is excellent with a huge variety of choices, and the Nahm restaurant is outstanding. The pool could be open a bit longer but then you have to be comfortable swimming in front of the restaurant guests which is maybe the only downside.
Every is perfect here, the location south Sathorn (business center and not too far from the river, bus is at walking distance) and 20 minutes from the airport.
Small 5 stars hotel even not boutique but feels like it.
The design is stunning from the entrance, the rooms and the swimming pool. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Last time I went the restaurant was under renovation, I an sure that after it be even better than before; let's see.
I am a repeat customer there since many years never disappointed !! You should try it
