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
We had the pleasure of staying here during our Bangkok visit. It was one of the best hotels we’ve ever stayed. Staff are so courteous and friendly. Top class room and Nahm restaurant is drool worthy!!
We're generally Airbnb people; staying in a luxury hotel is a serious treat but they can sometimes feel a stuffy or overwhelming when you're used to lugging your own baggage around and making your own bed!
The Como Bangkok get the balance just right in all round atmosphere and service. Wonderfully friendly staff who are attentive yet discreet, luxe but modern and uncluttered decor, a quiet but convenient location, an oasis-like pool area and thoughtful hospitality touches (cool flannels and rosella tea at check in, great amenities and pool-side ice lollies).
We stayed at the beginning and end of our trip for a total of 5 nights and were very happy we decided to return rather than trying another hotel. We didn't want to leave and this will be our first choice next time we're in Thailand.
Only had one night in this hotel but it was a great change from the Airbnb we stayed in the Sukhumvit area. The hotel is located in a fancier area of Bangkok but it was a great stay away from the smoke, humidity and noise. About 10 minute walk to nearest BTS station but very close to Siam and shopping areas. We had a very large room with massive bathroom and seating area. I was also impressed with the gym- on par with what I expect a gym to have (lots of equipment and even yoga studio). The only let down was the breakfast was not as expansive as I expected, but adequate nonetheless. Don't expect breakfast like the Pan Pacific in Singapore or Hotel Icon in Hong Kong where it is a buffet spread. However, I would still come back to this hotel. Upon arrival they gave us a drink and wet cloth. If you have been to Bangkok you know how necessary that is...with all the heat and humidity. We even had room service for dinner and it was really tasty - had Pad Thai, Stir Fry Morning Glory and Crab Fried Rice.
We didn't get to try the pool or Naam restaurant but next time
Our first trip to Asia started off in style with four nights at the Como. When we arrived we were greeted with drinks and cold towels, whilst all the check in information was brought to us as we sat and relaxed.
The room was beautiful, the view of the Bangkok skyline also great!
Breakfast at Glow is something special! Freshly prepared hot food, cooked to order, pastries, juices, salads etc. Nothing was too much trouble. The Thai style bacon and eggs was a favourite! As we were leaving very early on our last day they also prepared a takeaway breakfast box for us which was a nice touch!
Location wise it was great. Walking distance to both MRT and BTS stations, main road had plenty of access to taxis and a taxi to the Grand Palace was about 100THB (dependant on traffic of course!)
I would definitely return!
Fabulous service and incredible wifi.
Your staff are amazing and we would like to highlight Jack at the pool for his charm!!
The location was perfect as a way to see Bangkok from park to train to shopping and street food. Thank you
