"Is this really a Mandarin Oriental'"
The MO BKK, situated right next to the Chao Phraya river, has been famous for years - many of them as being the world's best hotel - for its superb hospitality. But unfortunately resting on its laurels has tarnished this MO's superior standards. This hotel is close to the Saphan Taksin BTS and of course offers transportation to and from the station. The hotel is divided into two wings with the majority of facilities being on the main wing. Check-in was of course effortless, as expected. The Mandarin room I took was large and nicely decorated. It was actually quite an interesting room since it was decorated and laid-out like a suite but without the inner walls, thereby making it spacious yet with defined sleeping and living ateas. Very clever indeed. To talk about the amenities would be boring since it was expected, and was indeed, luxurious and plentiful. The WiFi signal was strong and fast, but surprisingly and disappointingly, was initially provided at a daily charge. In this day and age it would actually be difficult to find a hotel - even amongst lesser hotels - that would charge for its WiFi signal. One can't help asking, how much can a hotel make by charging for WiFi, and how valuable would that income be worth comparing to customer loyalty and/or satisfaction' It took me three phone calls (!!) and a 20 minute (!!) wait to be told that my WiFi would be complimentary. Dinner was taken at the Verandah and it certainly won back a few points for the hotel with an amazingly tasty Pad Thai that I would rate the best in BKK, and 100 points more for supplying alcohol free beer - which is so rare in BKK that the only other establishment I can find supplying the same is The Peninsula. The Bamboo Bar had an excellent ambience, a wonderful variety of drinks (including of course alcohol free beer), but sadly, diabolical staff. Being on my own and the bar seats full I was seated at a table for two. As the bar got full and tables taken I was asked to move to another table at the corner to free up my table for another party which obviously consisted regular guests who knew everyone in the bar. 30 minutes after moving I was told (not asked) to move again to a bar seat. This was the first time such thing happened to me in the bar of a world class hotel ~ most probably because I was not a frequent guest, but nevertheless, a shameful incident. Breakfast was not taken so no comments could be made. I have stayed at many MOs around the world and certainly this stay at the MO Bangkok was the most unforgettable one, but in a bad way. What a first impression that was... Stay here if you have to. The hardware is undoubtedly wonderful, but sadly not the staff. Make sure you sort out the WiFi at check-in and avoid the Bamboo Bar at all costs unless you are accompanied by regulars of the bar.
If you are wanting a truly 5 star experience then choose this hotel. All the rooms are of the same luxury standard with 5 star bathrooms. A butler on every floor to look after all your needs. Decor that befits the hotels rating with very attentive staff everywhere in the hotel. Complimentary water and fruit in each room. Complimentary iced tea and fruit around the pool with attentive service from the staff. Very clean changing room. Just a superb hotel worthy of a visit.
I just spend two day at the mandarin oriental Bangkok and cannot say enough!what a phenomenal experience it was staying at this wonderful old gem .everything was special the lobby is filled with orchids in the most wonderful arrangements
"Nice stay with my family..:)"
We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. You can get good food and buffet promotions. Staffs are so friendly and polite.One of my cousin had an injury on her feet and i was wondered to check with the help desk whether they could provide first aid kit or not..But within few minutes they provided me the kit with basic medicines. You should try massages in their spa..very relaxing.. We were worried about hiring a taxi with a reasonable pay.Luckily,this hotel suggested a driver named Kelvin @ Mun. His driving is so good and He is very patient with us in suggesting about the places to see based on our time constraints.He is trustworthy and i will recommend him if you want to hire a taxi with a reasonable pay. Thank you guys for making our stay memorable...
Wonderful three day stay in this Hotel, so look forward to coming back in two weeks time. Impeccable service, charming staff. We had a small problem with the toilet in the bathroom and came back to the room to find two vases filled with flowers to apologise for the inconvenience! Mr & Mrs OHara
