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

We were delighted staying at MO. We are used to staying at Four Season, but MO wowed us in a way that now MO is definitely our first choice. We felt as part of a family, something that we've never felt before in a hotel. Everyone goes above and beyond to make you happy. They should be rated 6 star hotel!. Every single thing is beautifully made (served & personalized) for you. It is worth it every cent! Highly recommend! It is definitely a whole new hotel experience. Congrats MO Bangkok!

Mandarin Oriental Bangkok
Reviewed 5 days ago

Our stay was beyond expectations in every way. It is one of the top 5 luxury hotels we have ever stayed in, and the best in Bangkok without question. From the time we were picked up at the Airport to being escorted all the way to Security checkpoint when returning to the airport, it was a 5-star experience.

most elegant, most fabulous and most majestic hotel in Bangkok
Reviewed 1 week ago

I recently went back for almost 12 years to this most elegant, most fabulous and most majestic hotel in Bangkok on 25 May as a visitor ( and as your MO newsletter subscriber in Japan.),and had an extraordinary experience.
Good atmosphere on the Lobby floor with modern Thai decoration although renovation work was proceeding, I was sitting on an elegant sofa in a bright atrium-patio for a while, “The Authors' Lounge”.
I went into The Mandarin Oriental Shop ( it may be a temporary Kiosk due to renovation work) because I wanted to buy some souvenirs for friends in Tokyo.(Some items often features advertisement ”Fans of M.O.”), a female staff at the cashier was tremendous friendly and I, also, was truly happy.
Next, I climbing the seasoned and practiced stairs up to on mezzanine floor overlooking the floor of “The Authors' Lounge”, because I wanted to feel its soft ambience on all-througtout-the floor.
I was escorted to a smallish table by the high- ceiling- window, and I could see a bright outside terrace out of the window.
I enjoyed a glass of Alsace wine and Vietnamese vegetable dumplings (steamed), and, many many people around me enjoyed Lunch or Tea on the Saturday afternoon.
(I know that I can see Chao Phraya river scene at my table throughout the high- ceiling window in this restaurant.) Of course, these glasses and dishes must be very delicious! More than anything, I had very elegant scene and relaxed time.

This was 2-nd visit to this Restaurant, each time has each impression.
I honestly think that their service is extremely outstanding!

Relaxing Tea
Reviewed 1 month ago

Such a pleasant place to relax over a delicious, slow tea. The Oriental version was our favorite, served in little porcelain containers, a vairety of delicious Thai tidbits. Staff were subdued and most helpful.
