“LOOKS GOOD TASTES AWFUL”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

Great location, rooms look fantastic, BUT not enough storage space for a couples clothing, and especially in a city where tourists buy clothing.
The 1st morning we queued for breakfast, the second my wifes' meal was not what was ordered, and we found our room flooded on return.
Due to the rectangular design of the building the lifts were a hike away from the room, although the hallways were attractive due to the wonderful Thai artifacts displayed along the way.
Management were pompous and did nothing to eleviate any problem. The Thai staff acted quickly to clean up.
We were booked for 18 nights, and lasted 2, before changing to the InterContinental, an older hotel, with fantastic space, better selection and volume of food, and staff that went beyond the call of duty. Our experience at the Kempinski was a nightmare and ruined the initial two days of one of our many trips to Bangkok. We are returning to Bangkok in December, and cannot contemplate staying at the Kempinski.

Room Tip: All rooms are beautifully designed, but actually are small and not worth the money.

The hotel is a few steps away from Siam Paragon. If you love shopping, this is your place to stay.
Even with the location in the heart of town, it is amazingly nice, quiet and peaceful. Just like they say it's a resort in the city.
I love this hotel from when I set foot in. From the front door to the spacious lobby to my hotel room.
Everything is just elegant, but still make me feel nice and warm.
Staff are also attentive and polite.
As a GHA Platinum member I was upgraded to a next room category, don't remember which one though, complimentary hi-speed wi-fi in room and late check-out til 3pm.
Upon check-in, I requested for 4pm late check-out, though they were fully booked, they were very nice to arrange for 3pm check-out while they tried to sort out my request.

The other thing I love about the hotel is they have the saxophonist plays nice, sweet mellow tunes in the afternoon, and the jazz band play lively ones in the morning.
I love to sit in the lobby, of course spacious, but with so many guests still offer a nice corner to sit and enjoy the music.

When I returned from my dinner, my bed was turned down, The Lady in Red left a note for me to call at any time should I require any assistance. It's a nice touch.

I love the bathroom with a big tub and mirrors everywhere. It makes the room feel neat and not boxy.

In short, I love this place and will definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you are a GHA member, you can get free in-room wi-fi, late check out and room upgrade.

My family stayed twice at this hotel, early October 2011 and late October 2011. We booked on the first stay a two bedroom suite and on teh second stay we hade two Cabana Rooms which you step into the pool from your verandah. The property was very clean and was built to a hi standard. The rooms were fantastic and very well apointed. You had access to the 17th floor lounge and it was located next door to a big shopping centre, which they will drive you to in the golf buggies if you wish, no need but.

Would recommed it and stay again.

What can I say that others haven't already. It is located right next to the Paragon which is then interconnected to the entire central shopping district of Bangkok. If you want to shop and eat and head back to relax, then this is the place. We've stayed at the Interncontinental and Sukhothai. Service, it is on par but neither of these can beat its proximity and location to shopping and food. If you are coming to Bangkok for these 2 things, then you'd want to stay here.

Otherwise, the decor is contemporary, rooms are large and with all the modern facilities including in room espresso machines, plug-ins for all your gadgets and free wifi in rooms and throughout the hotel.

The hotel is located right at the heart of Bangkok, just 1-minute walk from Siam Paragon, an amazing shopping mall where you can spend a whole day, or even more.
The hotel can arrange a ride to other nearby locations, e.g. CentralWorld or Siam BTS station. Very convenient and attentive.

The overall ambience is luxurious. Rooms are clean, spacious and nicely decorated. Free minibar and free high-speed wifi access.

Buffet breakfast - wide range of food choices, hot and cold, plenty of supply. We eat outside near the pool, a perfect start for a day.

Afternoon tea at the T Lounge is superb.

Hotel staff are polite, friendly and hospitable.

Stayed for the first time at the Siam Kempinski Hotel. Enjoyed a fab stay besides the fact that the city is empty due to the flooding. However the center is not affected. Restaurants are also quite empty. However the quality of food or service did not get reduced. I had a fantastic room facing the garden. Absolutely quiet... The only disadvantage I experienced is that the drive in at night is guarded through securities from a nearby Royal Palace and it makes it difficult sometimes for taxi drivers besides the fact they hardly know where to go to.

Located right next to the grand mall Siam Paragon where u can find excellent food and shops. Perfect for those who love shopping.

Room was in simple modern thai style, though the size was not very big but the bed was so comfy, bet they use high quality mattress.

Breakfast buffet is one thing u can't be missed. They served high quality food like La Fermiere yogurt, fresh honey from honeycomb, Ronnefeldt tea... Egg, bacon & sausage can be ordered by menu, hot food is served guaranteed.
