The Mandarin Oriental Hotel is outstanding! Highly professional staff and excellent service and very nice rooms with a an enormes view. However do not visit The Italian Restaurant. They did not deliver. The Seabass was overcooked, the Minestronesoup was filled with pasta and potatoes and without any taste at all. Lunch at The Veranda was a great experience. Very tasty...

There is little I can say about this hotel that hasn't been said already. All I do is confirm what everyone has said. The Mandarin Oriental is awesome. The service is perfect, the food is perfect, the spa is perfect, etc. If you want something, just ask and it will be there. I can't imagine how a hotel could be...

There are many spectacular hotels in Bangkok, but only one with 140 years of history and tradition. We were treated like royalty, even though only there for one night on our latest return visit. Excellent restaurants, but breakfast and the barbecue by the river are our favorites. We loved wandering through the Authors' Lounge and reading the many words of...

Although I have titled this as visiting with friends we were here for a business trip for my husband but I accompanied him and met up with friends. From the moment we were met at the airport and accompanied through a fast track immigration it was perfect. Check in was easy with us being presented with garlands and a welcome...

As always this hotel ranks as number 1. Nothing is too much trouble and the greeting service at the airport is particularly worthwhile as the airport can on occasions be very crowded so to be whisked through everything is brilliant and well worth the extra charge after a long flight.

I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental for three nights on business at the beginning of October. I had not stayed before but had heard great things about it. I was not disappointed - the room was good (although not quite as modern as other five star hotels) and the service excellent. When choosing a room you should ask for one...

The Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok is our very favorite hotel! We have stayed several time over the past few decades and each visit is better than the previous. Even though Bangkok seems more run down, the hotel only improves, in service, food and ambiance. All the restaurants are excellent and service is superb. We love the location and the extra...

I haven't posted in quite a while because many places aren't worth it - more or less, they meet expectations whatever those may be. Not so with the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok which always exceeds them. This is Thai hospitality at its absolute finest and surely some of the best in the world. Of course the rooms, the facilities and the...

We stayed for seven nights. It was fairly close to perfect. The hotel is beautiful, a combination of stylish old colonial and modern palatial. The setting is ideal, beside the river. There are an extraordinary number of excellent restaurants on site. The French restaurant, in particular, is outstanding. Above all, there is the service, which is just about the best...

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
