The Review

Bangkok, with its addictive street food, great shopping and gilded temples, is one of my favorite capitals — but it’s also hot, crowded, noisy and often utterly exhausting. So it was with grateful relief that I stepped into the Siam Kempinski’s sleek, airy lobby with its 45-foot ceiling soaring over the sparkling white marble floors and gargling tiered fountain. The white high-backed armchairs beckoned, and I plopped down to rest my tired feet. It was, quite simply, bliss.

I watched the hotel staff cheerfully take pictures of guests in front of the lobby’s huge floral centerpieces before the concierge led me to my room, a 431-square-foot oasis of subdued hues: beige silk-paneled padded walls, pale gray wood floors, sage green throw pillows. The soft, unassuming palette was offset by modern touches like glass-topped tables and a large sepia-tone closeup of a lotus flower, just one of the nearly 4,000 pieces of local art that are scattered throughout the hotel. Meanwhile, the luxurious bath included both a rectangular tub and a marble-clad shower stall fitted with Hansgrohe fixtures that delivered the best rain shower I’ve had in recent memory.

Though backed by high-rises, the grounds’ fragrant frangipani trees and towering palms create an exotic atmosphere that keeps guests feeling close to Thailand’s tropical abundance while providing quiet corners for families and couples alike.

Foodies will find plenty to love here, starting with afternoon tea at the T Lounge where there are 60 different types of tea choose from, along with a scrumptious array of sweets and delicate sandwiches. The hotel’s culinary crown jewel is Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, the brainchild of Michelin star–rated Dane Henrik Yde Anderson. The mod twists on traditional Thai dishes, especially the curries, are unlike anything I have ever experienced in this city before — much like the utter peace and quiet back in my room, which lulled me into a delicious night’s sleep.

Superb staying here

Very nice atmosphere with wonderful landscape, most convenience to shopping mall if you love shopping and connected to BTS, I didn't feel like you are not in city center. All staff very helpful with service mind. So enjoy staying here.

Inflexible Hotel

A hotel with first class amenities cannot cater to basic guest requirements, The room I was booked into had free flowing minibar. Unfortunately, only beer, water and softdrinks are in it. And since I do not drink softdrinks or beer, the free contents of the mjnibar was of no use. When I called up the hotel to request that juices be placed instead of the softdrinks, they simply said it cannot be done. Too bad. They are so inflexible. 

The pool by the way is sprawling at the center of the hotel. But it was more for those who simply want to wade in the water and play. For people who would like to do swimming lapses for their cardio exercise like me, the pool was of no use. The longest straight stretch one can have is 5-6 meters even if going in a diagonal direction.

So there it is. A first class hotel, 5-star it is said but it seems that its features are only for a particular group of guests: those thst drink beer and softdrinks and those who want to play in the pool.
