“Minimalist Luxury At Its Best”
Reviewed 28 October 2011

Set back of the road, this hotel is sensational. From its minimalist foyer, to the friendly and chic front of house staff. The rooms large, and lots of room to relax, nice bathrooms. The pool is huge, and the service excellent poolside enticing you to languish in the sunshine until late afternoon, after a morning of shopping. 3 things we suggest you must do while staying here. First, head next door to the Banyan Tree and head up to the top floor outdoor bar, and check out Bangkok as the sun goes down (Boys were shoes, no thongs or sandals.) Go to Nahm, David Thompson's Thai restaurant. Excellent food, and very reasonably priced. Again minimalist decor. Finally head to the market on Sunday, jump on the Metro. Do not listen to anyone trying to tell you it doesn't open until later, they will be trying to sell you a boat ride or a visit to their friend's shop. Trust the hotel staff.

Room Tip: We chose the larger room, and it was huge. The hotel is off the street so no noise impacts in any r...

We stayed two nights, the finale to a two week vacation in Vietnam and Thailand. There was a gorgeous plate of fruit in our room and tea service service upon arrival which was a nice touch. We really liked the minimal decor and the comfortable platform bed.

The hotel itself is really tranquil as everyone says amidst all the chaos of Bangkok. It does seem catered toward business travelers which is fine with me as I hate being stuck with a ton of clueless tourists. The location is great and we found it relatively easy to walk to the skytrain nearby with lots of local activity including sidewalk food vendors and nearby street markets which makes the area more lively with locals rather than tourists. The hotel gym is excellent and you get access to the spa changing rooms with a hot pool and sauna as a hotel guest which was fantastic!

We had breakfast at Glow which was very tasty, we particularly loved the corn cake and the porridge dishes, the coffee being too weak but the espresso was fine. We had dinner at Nahm and it's good but didn't blow our socks off. The canapes were really thoughtout and wonderful, but the main dishes we ordered were not anything special. It was still an excellent experience and when in Bangkok, you should go! I definitely stay here again when I'm in Bangkok.

On a business trip to the Himalayas that involved a stopover in Bangkok,my husband and I found ourselves in the city in the middle of the terrible recent flooding. Not only was the Metropolitan in the only protected zone, but the hotel itself has the feel of a sanctuary in the lively chaos that is Bangkok proper. The staff was flawlessly attentive, and provided regular updates on the flooding situation. Our room was stunningly spacious and elegant its browns-on-cream motif suited both masculine and feminine sensibilities. I adored the spa, and a massage given by a Thai woman named "Ann" was one of the best of my life, deep but graceful -- I don't know how she did it! The superb highlight was our anniversary dinner at the hotel's fine restaurant, nahm, created by world-renowned Aussie-Thai chef David Thompson, author of the monumental tribute to classical Thai cooking, Thai Food, and its sister, Thai Street Food. Trust us that you have never experienced Thai cuisine with such depth of flavor, exquisite composition and almost unbelievable freshness -- they make their own coconut milk in-house! Our flight back to the States routes through Bangkok again, and we're ready to face the floods to have one more dinner at nahm. Five Stars all around.

Hotel is on a busy road but with a long drive way the hotel is hidden and quiet. Rooms are spacious. I was here with the family on holiday for a couple of days. Don't quite know why this hotel is not rated higher up on the list.

Next time I'm in Bangkok, I'll definitely stay here again. Everything was perfect. It's a great place to escape the craziness of Bangkok. The pool is amazing and is in full sun for most of the day. I didn't move from my sun lounge for a few days.

The room rates are very reasonable - unbelievable actually. The rooms themselves are very comfortable and luxurious. Great bathroom with huge shower, and they use Como Shambala products which are very nice!

I've got to say that the Metroplitan puts on the best breakfast spread I've ever seen. So delicious, fresh and healthy. You won't get bored with the selections like you might at another hotel.

The only criticism I have is that the wireless is not free. Despite this, the signal is excellent so
take your iPad poolside if you like!

The location suited us fine. Depending on traffic, a cheap cab ride anywhere is easy. We found the trains and their dual ticket system frustrating so we stuck with cabs for most of the trip.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you very much for sharing with us your recent experience at the Metropolitan Bangkok.

We are happy to note that you enjoyed your stay with us as well as our breakfast at Glow.

With regards to the internet, our in-room internet is currently available at cost since the service is outsourced through a third party service provider. However, we do have a plan to review the wi-fi contract again at the end of this year and re-assess the best course of action to deliver this facility.

Thank you for choosing the Metropolitan and we look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel in a near future.

Metropolitan Bkk is a very cool minimalist hotel which is indeed more photogenic at night. The room is very spacious (maybe even more than necessary) and quite simple (minimalist isn't it? :D). The only complaint I might have about the room is the noise isolation which is not very good and you can hear everything that happens outside the corridor clearly. Nice & helpful staff in very cool uniform (designed by Comme des Garcon) who ignored the fact that we sneaked 4 people into the room while registering only for 2 lol. It can take a while to get a cab from here and you should not pay more than 100baht if you just go around the city.
Nahm is the hotel's stylish Thai restaurant for those who can handle extremely spicy food.

This hotel is beautiful and very sleek, at least on the inside (the outside look of the building is anonymous). The lobby is spacious like the rooms (we had a Met room). Our room was large and had a nice 'lounge' area with comfy sofas. The bathroom is big as well and the amenities are really good (Como Shambala products), however the bathroom had a terrible smell which was removed the second day after we complained. The breakfast is the best I have ever had - great selection, healthy and flavoursome, with the best muesli I have ever tasted, yet it was quite expensive (around 20£ per person!). The met bar is also quite cool, although it was empty when we had a drink there (a monday night admittedly).
My main, if only, problem with this hotel is the location. It seems more for business people given the area, than tourists. It's quite a way from the 'centre' (eg the temples, the river, the shopping areas) and the nearest train station is a 10 minutes walk which does add up to the journey time to anywhere considerably. There are also not many restaurants nearby so to have dinner one has to get out of the area.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for taking time to share your comment on Tripadvisor.

I am pleased to know that you enjoyed your overall stay with us.

Regarding the bathroom, I have asked our Chief Engineer to look into this problem and have it sorted.

I am happy that you liked our Glow breakfast. Our Executive Chef chooses only the best and freshest produces available and our price is also in line with other 5-star hotels in Bangkok.

For the transportation from the hotel to BTS (sky train) station and MRT (subway station), we have free shuttle van available and it can be booked through our guest services.

Once again, thank you for choosing the Metropolitan. My team and I look forward to welcoming you back soon.
