“First week of 2014”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Departed from Helsinki on New Year's Eve, about half an hour from BKK airport to the hotel by taxi, we arrived to a very quiet city around 9 a.m. on January 1st.

On arrival at reception we were escorted to the Club Lounge on the 37th floor for check-in with a fruity drink & breakfast, my wife was given a mini-teddy bear in IC livery.

We were to be upgraded to a Junior suite (Ambassador Platinum) which naturally wasn't ready so early in the day - still they assigned us a temporary room on the 29th floor to freshen up - very nice room.

Had a couple of hours sleep before going out for a wander, came back for afternoon snacks in the Club lounge and were assigned 2702 (if I remember correctly).

A corner room - the modest sized living room had a nice panoramic window, a desk, 2
person sofa and armchair, plus a large TV (48"?), DVD and selection of cables to hook your PC up to the telly.

Through the living room was a dressing room, leading on to the bedroom and bathroom.

Bathroom with very spacious shower, a reasonable bath, decent toiletries, v. good soap.
The bedroom, very good bed with another large TV similar to the living room.

OK selection of TV channels, WiFi connection not the fastest, but reasonable for TV downloads

For those with Club lounge access, the views are very nice, a good breakfast selection, in the afternoon there is afternoon tea, then a cocktail happy hour followed by evening snacks ... hard to resist it all.

We ate dinner in the hotel just once, Thai restaurant on the lower ground floor, it was passable, but nothing spectacular and probably found better food in the restaurants of the Central World mall on the next block (5 minute walk from the hotel) go to the 7th floor.

P.s. the 7th floor of Central World also has a great supermarket stocking goods from around the world incase you forgot to pack something.

The hotel is located next to the BTS Skytrain walkway running above Ploen Chit. The nearest BTS station is Chit Lom, or you can walk several blocks in the opposite direction to Siam station (near the Siam Paragon mall. The walkway is a nice way to get a view of the street without having to mix with the cars below.

Very good concierge service in the hotel lobby organised a driver to take us on a day trip around the ruined temples of Ayutthaya a couple of hours drive away. Left at 08:30 and returned about 18:00, a really nice daytrip.

Lucky for us we were there whilst the protestors were on holiday ... it all kicked off again 5 days after we left.

Room Tip: We had a junior suite, the hotel is so high with not so many tall buildings around that I suppose mo...

I came here with my wife on our honeymoon for our stay in Bangkok. Prior to arriving I heard that this hotel was one of the nicest hotels in Bangkok and it did not disappoint.

After a long trip arriving, we arrived at the Intercontinental to warm welcomes and a spectacular room. Thew view was amazing and the staff was amongst the most professional and friendly I have ever experienced.

I have stayed at a lot of hotels in my life and this one is probably the nicest and best experience I have had.

Food: The morning breakfasts were wonderful and their room service and on premises restaurants were excellent. Every expectation and desire were met with timeliness and a warm smile. On a side note, I highly recommend having a drink by the pool. We just found time to do it on our last night and wish we would have gone up there more often.

Staff: Simply the best. They made sure I knew where I was going and safely made it to any destinations. The concierge was excellent and the staff took care of any request we had. They even rush shipped something back to the US for me as I was short on time heading to our next location.

Location: Perfect location. Great for shopping and a short distance to many of the local sights.

I cannot recommend this hotel more. I regularly stay at five diamond hotels and this is amongst, if not the, best. Cannot say more about this place and my room on the club level was a great bargain for what we got.

Room Tip: Go with the club rooms. Way worth the extra amount.

Best service we have experienced at any hotel in the world. Don't be concerned about current protests in Bangkok as this hotel is very safe as is the surrounding area. Even though we were close to the protest area for three days we felt totally safe.

I have stayed here many times and it is my hotel of choice. It is near to a protest site which is unfortunate for them hence the slightly below average location score for now only.. but it is still very safe and near bts. The staff are always great. Working long days in Bangkok are rewarded with a very comfortable and relaxing time in one of the best spa gym and pool areas. On that the service at the pool by Joey, Sek, funny Dong, Bang or Jack makes the bustle of Bangkok just that so much more chilled out that if you can't relax that bit more then you need another well served long island ice tea. Great hotel, won't be disappointed. Great for work or holiday stay.

We had an pleasant stay!.
From our arrival until the check out we felt really well treated and comfortable.
The hotel and room facilities are perfect and the hotel is really great located.
Unfortunately we just stayed for one night and had to check out really early, but that was enough time to see how friendly and helpful the staff at Intercontinetal is.
Especially Julia was really adorable and helpful, she offered us a wake-up call and a breakfast box so we could enjoy Breakfast at 4 AM.
As my wifes knee had an contusion, they arranged a room really close to the elevator and Julia wrote down some interessting places near by, so we didn`t had to walk for to long.

It took me 15 years to return to Bangkok, I hope it will be sooner in the future and then I will defined book Intercontinental again.
