The Okura Prestige Bangkok
Ranked #6 of 891 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 December 2013

The Okura is located just off the Plernchit BTS station making it a great hotel for someone who needs to travel around Bangkok and does not want to deal with traffic. The standard rooms are huge with a comfortable bed, ample room at the sink, a separate section for the toilet (Japanese toilet of course) and a walk-in closet. There are two sections for breakfast to choose from - the Japanese restaurant serving traditional Japanese breakfast and another section for regular buffet. I stayed at the hotel in December, when Bangkok's hot and humid weather gives way to some cool breezes so particularly enjoyed sitting out in the balcony for my breakfast. The service was over all very good although one day the breakfast room was quite full and I found that a lot of things were lacking such as no cup with my coffee (it was in a pot) and water that I requested was never served. All in all though a good experience.

Dear Candy,
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this very positive review regarding your recent stay in December with us. We were thrilled to read that you enjoyed your experience at The Okura Prestige here in Bangkok and truly appreciate all the positive comments you had to make. With that said, we are sorry for the spotty service you experienced at breakfast, we since have been looking into this area.
We thank you for being such a great ambassador to Okura Hotels and we hope to welcome you back to our property in the not too distant future.
Yours sincerely
Samir Wildemann

It was our fourth time in Bangkok but our first time at Okura Prestige and we were truly impressed.
The first impression was excellent with friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is brand-new and well located in the middle of the center just a step to the sky-train. A lot of points of interests you can reach within 30 minutes. The room was spacious with all facilities you need above all spotlessly clean and very modern with a nice view of the town. Everything is electric even the toilet.
The breakfast was outstanding with a wide range of good thinks as fresh coconuts, fresh juices, different breads much Asia food and much European food. There is also a nice terrace with incredible views. We didn't use the dinner but we heard a lot of positive.
The pool area is really great with stunning views. The staff overall was very friendly and attentive. All in all a real 5 star hotel.
When we come back to Bangkok for sure we will consider this hotel.

I am thrilled with my visit to Bangkok and my stay in The Okura Prestige. In all my previous stays in hotels, my breakfast would be confined to sedate surroundings. But The Okura Prestige takes the cake literally. The breakfast at the Up and Above restaurant on the 24th floor was too good. My omelet was perfectly made and the coffee was heavenly. The other defining feature of the hotel is the cantilevered infinity swimming pool that is heated. The hotel is attached to the Phloen Chit Skytrain station and is close to the well known attractions such as The Grand Palace, Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Arun temples and the magnificent China Town. The China Town is some place! Gourmets could hog all they want after sundown when the street stalls open for business. This is one Japanese style hotel you should not miss.

We’re delighted that you had a fantastic visit and enjoyed all we had to offer, starting from this buildings quite spectacular architecture down to Bangkok’s best breakfast.

Great hotel, centrally located.
The hotel has a great vibe the minute you walk into the sky lobby, which is very airy and calm. Staff and service was impeccable. Room design is great. Efficient free wifi. Breakfast buffet had a great selection and the views from the dining room are great.
Would definitely go back.

We recently stayed at the okura it lived up to its name in respect of prestige. The outside bar area could have been bigger. The room was lovely and very comfortable. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Only downside perhaps was location if we were to go back we would stay at a riverside hotel near asiatique because the okura was a heavy traffic cab ride away.

Thank you for your review and we appreciate you sharing your stay experience on TripAdvisor. We too wish at times that our outside bar area on the 24th Floor would be bigger as it is having a lot of success and it can be quite busy at times. We have now also opened the Elements Restaurant terrace next to our pool on the 25th floor for evening cocktails and it is equally popular, especially now during the winter dry season.
We all hope to be able to welcome you back one day.
Wishing you the very best for the New Year

Congrats to the Okura Prestige Hotel in Bangkok, which is the best hotel ever I've been to; elegant, high tech, delicious food... In addition, the service is superior, provided by very devoted, polite and professional staff. Special kudos should go to the VIP Lounge crew - Bob, Santiago and the rest of the team, who made sure to make the guests feel most welcome and receive impeccable service. Way to go!!!
