Overview

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.

Our favourite hotel in Bangkok
Reviewed 23 hours ago

Although we only stayed for one night on this occasion this top quality hotel continues to maintain its charm. The staff are extremely efficient and friendly and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.
Even the standard rooms are of a good size and offer the best amenities and toiletries.
The breakfast was the only slight disappointment. There is limited space inside and the staff were having a hard time to keep up with the breakfast rush. For breakfast the W Hotel has a better offering and the breakfast area a lot more spacious.
Notwithstanding we will return to Siam Kempinski Bangkok when on our next visit to this bustling city.

Wonderful stay
Reviewed 2 days ago

We stayed four nights in Bangkok for our honeymoon and the hotel was really really nice.

Location: in the centre of the city, right next to Paragon and within couple of minutes walking distance from Central World. Probably the best location for people who love shopping.

Hygiene: can’t be better, very clean and tidy. My skin is very very sensitive to bed conditions and I didn’t feel a bit of itch at all. Next time in Bangkok I will go for this hotel again, regardless of the occasions.

Staff: very friendly and helpful.

Bonus: the hotel sent us roses and some desserts for our honeymoon, it was very kind of them.

perfect location and kids friendly
Reviewed 3 days ago

we are a well travelled family of 4 with two kids 7yo and 3yo. the location was perfect as it's connected to Siam paragon where there's loads of restaurants, shopping and supermarket. an aquarium and Kidzania are also right next door. with two young kids, the location was perfect for us.
we stayed in a suite w bedroom, living room, kitchen, washer and dryer. the room was very nice, bed was comfortable. they gave us complimentary kids welcome package on arrival, also received a cake for our anniversary which were very nice gestures.
but we did have a bit of a mishap where the dryer wasn't working properly and there was a weird sound coming out of the vent in our bedroom. the engineers came to evaluate the situation within minutes of our call which we were pretty impressed with. and we eventually received complimentary laundry service because the washer/dryer could not be fixed in time.
there's a kids club where kids can stay from I think 9-5 which is also complimentary unless there was any special classes they want to join ie cooking class. we didn't go because our kids won't stay there but it looked pretty nice.
overall, everything was excellent, service was beyond our expectation so we will definitely stay here again in the future.

To Who may concern.
Due to my experiences with the hotel .As today I have to attend some IVF conference and I came by BTS( as I live near 1station away from the hotel. So I have to walk from BTS to main Entrance. However, your staff infront of Entrance gate asked me "มาทำอะไร". It was super shock me till I have to check my grooming and dress code. I know he definitely just ask with no any bad intention with his innocent face. But I still question myself,
1 . Do I need to reply him back in English, Thai or Mandarin? If I reply in English will I get better treat?

2.Is that normal for 5 stars hotel to greet your guest with this language ?or I should just ignore it because his innocent face.

I won't blame him or ask for his apologies because that it just a part of service recovery. But with SPG or Starwood, it never happened to me.

Maybe, your staff training department need to work harder and educate how to use proper language to hotel guest.

5 Star service is all about how you make people feel, not luxury of the name only.

I hope to see that man around again but in better greeting manners.

Excellent stay

Stayed for 4 nights in May. Excellent location right next to Siam Paragon.

Taking a cab to or from the hotel however isn’t that great considering the constant bad traffic. Good thing that the bts is pretty close by then. When departing for the airport, do plan for extra time if taking a taxi.

Breakfast here is fantastic. Half buffet style where their egg options are simply to do die for.

Air conditioning can be a little too cold so do take care when transitioning between the usually hot weather and the cold blast of air conditioning in the hotel.
