My experience with Japanese owned or managed hotels has not always been good (Waikiki) but this hotel is truly outstanding. Apart from the fact that no taxi driver we used had ever seen the hotel so we had to guide them. It has been open for over a year and everything still sparkles. The attention to detail is amazing: no need to bring power adapters because there are international power sockets in the room. Like tea? You can make a pot of cleansing Japanese green tea in the room or enjoy a filter coffee. The swimming pool and gym? Check the photos, it's all here. Breakfast would have to be the best I have had in 20 something years of visiting Bangkok, from the variety of foods on offer to the quality of the smoked salmon and ripe cheeses. Even a simple Eggs Benedict comes back as a work of art. Did I mention the coffee? They do an excellent cappuccino (which is still rare in Bangkok). Where they really excel is in the Club floors. I was able to compare 2 Club offerings this trip (Banyan Tree and Okura) and although the Banyan Tree Club suites might well be larger than Okura suites, and the Okura Club Lounge also seems slightly snug compared with the other, I think I would prefer to stay at the Okura. Service from Santiago and Susama in the Club Lounge was more than you could ask for, thank you so much for making us all welcome. I felt like you were looking after us in your own home at times, rather than at a corporate hotel. Maybe that's the difference: Okura Prestige Bangkok is not just another corporate brand hotel, it really seems like a family hotel to me and I enjoyed every day staying there.
