What We Love

  • Breakfast by the river: a first class menu, excellent service and a parade of riverboats
  • Afternoons by the pool, relaxing in one of the canopied, cushioned cabanas
  • Most rooms and suites have river views, a treat in this sprawling city
  • High tea in the all-white Author’s Lounge, in the original Oriental Hotel
  • The sense of class that pervades all things Mandarin Oriental
  • Bedtime quotations on your pillow from famous authors, about the wonders of sleep

What To Know

  • A 10 percent hotel service charge per night will be collected by Jetsetter at checkout
  • The hotel is in central Bangkok and right on the Chao Phraya River – which means spacious views from most rooms, riverside dining and easy access (from the hotel jetty) to Bangkok attractions such as the Grand Palace
  • Bangkok is tropically hot year-round; the hotel is fully air conditioned, but try to avoid visiting in May, the rainy season, when the heat and humidity can be extreme
  • The spa and the hotel’s Thai restaurant, Sala Rim Naam, are across the river from the main hotel, accessible by the hotel’s teak shuttle boat
  • The hotel was last renovated 2010

wonderful

as the mandarin is maybe the best hotel group ever, the prices are just how they are. but what we dont like, and this is not only at Mandarin hotels, that if you have two kids you MUST book two rooms even if the hotel space is far big enough for everyone in just one room. they call that „safety reasons“ , we call that economic reasons ;) so, if you are a 4 people family, a stay in this class costs you serious money !

The Most Marvelous Hotel in Bangkok

Beware of rude staff

I stayed here 2 years ago with my mother, and had a wonderful experience. I chose to stay at a different hotel this year, but had lunch at one of the hotel's restaurants. Upon finishing my meal, I went to hotel's lobby waiting for my taxi to come. I remembered from last stay that there was a restroom located on the 2nd floor, so I headed to the stairs. However, I found one of the staff looking at me as if I've invaded the hotel's property, and when our eyes met he asked me right away where I was going. I told him I am headed to the restroom and pointed at the direction towards the restroom I remember in the 2nd floor, but he shook his head and said it's not there but there is one on the first floor. I am not saying there is something wrong with him giving the direction to the nearest toilet which is located on the first floor, but his way of telling me- his face expressions and his tone- offended me so much. I thought for a second if I were overreacting, but my friend also felt the same discomfort. It is indeed a beautiful hotel, but this hotel might do much better with a more decent staff.
