"Expensive and the room was old"
I got a special deal for 1 night and it was 9000 THB (which is not cheap). The carpet was smelly. The room was nicely decorated but the sheets and pillow cases were used up and I think they need to change it. I don't understand why people give this a 6 starred hotel.
I use to be in this hotel from already 40 years. When I arrive , every time, I feel at home. This time ,looking for congress location, I checked the meeting room and may be are the best in the world. Everything here is over the top
"The best hotel in the Far East - and possible in the world"
It's our second stay in MOBK. Hotel has excellent location: riverside, close to Si Lom Rd, good connection to the airport ( 35 min drive ). Beautiful interior - in common areas and the room itself. Fantastic service - on every level. Excellent restaurants. World famous Spa. It's a very expensive hotel - esp on Thai/Bangkok conditions but it's worth every penny. Highly recommended.
"Classic and distinctly original"
The Mandarin Oriental Bangkok had always been on the hit list of hotels to visit, especially being one of the founding hotels in the chain. We were picked up from the hotel promptly and from that moment life was easy, especially after travelling for over 18 hours. With in-room checkin, a beautiful Suite refreshing beverages and a brilliant view of the river the start of our holiday was a dream come true. Eating on the terrace due to arriving late, the food was excellent and very generous in size. A brilliant singer was entertaining residents around the piano in the bar. Breakfast was lovely and the transfers to the airport were perfectly timed. A beautiful hotel with every amenity you need when away from home, nothing is to much trouble and the hotel has a good mosquito protection system in place, everything has been thought of. We will be returning to spend more time in Bangkok two nights is not enough.
"As good as it gets...the best there is"
I have to be in Bangkok for business reasons every year, and my wife always joins me. This year was our tenth visit. We usually stay 2-3 weeks, so with so many visits for that many days over so many years, we've seen this hotel at its best and its worst. First, then, let me say that there is no "worst" at the Oriental, to use its original name, which long (by well over a century) predates the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. There is only "best" at this property. Heaven on earth is to be at the Verandah, riverside along the Chao Phraya river, enjoying a superb Thai dinner and being looked after by the best wait staff on the planet. It is not a Michelin starred restaurant. It is not even the top rated restaurant in the hotel. It provides an exquisite and unforgettable experience, though, something which can simply not be duplicated. Everything at the hotel is done perfectly, from the availability of hotel cars to get around Bangkok, to great rooms, an abundance of beautiful flowers and outstanding tropical fruit, to the great restaurants (Thai, Italian, Chinese, seafood, French, even a superb outdoor dinner buffet), a terrific bar, and a staff which is so outstanding that it goes beyond my ability to describe. This is "the" hotel to stay at in Bangkok. It always has been, for over 140 years. I'm already looking forward to next year.
