"Yet another fantastic MO"
My husband and I have stayed at a few MOs all around the world and have always been impressed. The kindness/level of service of the staff is beyond compare and this location is perhaps the pinnacle of all MOs. Everyone was so helpful with restaurant reservations, directions and tips for points of interest. We had dinner at three of the on-site restaurants and thoroughly enjoyed all meals, especially the Thai buffet. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet as well once we adjusted to the time change. We woke up between 5a and 6a for the first few days and enjoyed the free coffee, tea and pastries in the lobby for us early birds as breakfast didn't start until 7a or 7:30a. That was a nice touch as well as free bottles of water in our room. And one of the bars offers a nightly happy hour (I think it was called Aperitif time) which was a great deal. The hotel is centrally located right on the water and offers nice views of the city with all of the boat traffic going by. The pools were beautiful and we loved the free ice cream offered to pool guests each afternoon. The lobby is also beautiful and I enjoyed walking around, reading about the history of the hotel and the famous authors who have visited/donated some of their books to the reading room. One of the highlights of the entire trip was the Thai cooking class the hotel offered. My husband and I lucked out and ended up getting a private class as no one else signed up. It was four hours on a Saturday with the first hour spent at a local market where the instructor pointed out different items, explaining what they were and how you might cook them. He also pointed out different things outside of the market which provided great insight into Thai life. The remaining three hours was spent cooking four different dishes with the instructor explaining more about the ingredients and substitutions to make for some not easily found in the US. He was so nice and patient. Then we got to eat what we cooked in one of the restaurants. A truly great experience! One thing to note is that the hotel has a dress code at night (after 6:30p) where flip flops/sandals, sleeveless T's and shorts are not allowed for women or men. It was nice to dress up but you obviously have to plan for this before leaving. The area temples and the palace also have dress codes (though really only for women). Overall an absolutely great stay and I'm already thinking about the next MO I can visit!
"The best hotel in Bangkok, without a doubt"
Your trip to Bangkok (and even the whole of Thailand) hasn't been complete if you haven't stayed at this iconic hotel. Great atmosphere, perfect riverside location, helpful staff, delicious breakfast, I could go on... The best hotel I have ever stayed it. Really no wonder why all the world leaders and VIP's have been choosing this hotel for over a century.
We went for a family wedding there and we travelled with an elderly who couldn't walk any long distance, we decided to stay at MO so she doesn't have to travel around. I've stated that we might need a wheelchair when we arrive and also some other requests, the hotel responded nicely and after we arrived, everyone was so nice and helpful throughout the 4 days we were there, breakfast was fabulous with many quality choices. Drink at the Bamboo bar was another highlight, live music and interesting cocktails. We attended the wedding at the grand ballroom and the venue was so beautiful and elegant. Overall, the whole experience was so enjoyable and thank you MO for making it so memorable.
"A memorable stay!"
What impressed me and I enjoyed the most was the beautiful swimming pool (which I had all to myself on the day I visited) -- perfect for swimming laps in a luxurious, tropical setting. To be honest, I could have stayed in the pool all day long and considered the trip a huge success, but then I would have missed the afternoon tea in the Author's Lounge which was also a delightful experience. A really beautiful, historical hotel with tastefully-decorated rooms, centrally-located, with courteous and attentive staff, and mouth-watering authentic Thai cuisine -- who could ask for anything more' This hotel is a superb choice for anyone planning a visit to Bangkok.
