“Judy's Birthday Bash in Bangkok”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

We had had 10 fab days in Khao Lak and was looking forward to Bangkok, we love Bangkok.

We havnt stayed at the Metropolitan but as it was 5 star i was expecting this to be good. We arrived and was checked in promptly, and while checking in our agent mentioned that it was my birthday on that day, One of the hotel staff said "leave that with me and Ill see what I can do".

We were taken to our room and yes, it was very cool and trendy, it looked amazing, it wasnt that big. Had i known there was an option to upgrade to a bigger room I would have asked, the room was at the end of the corridor and I think for 1 it would have been fine. My only gripe was that it was hard to get out of bed and stand up as on the right hand side of the bed, you were met with a wall, you had to get out of bed sideways :-(

The breakfast had plenty of choice, plus an a la carte menu to choose from. there was something for everyone.

We used the pool on the last day before leaving and the faciilties were good.

On the Sat evening, we went to the Moon Bar in the Banyan Tree, which was just next door, so very easy to get too.

We have stayed in Bangkok many times before and yes maybe other hotels have been more accessible but I would def stay here again if i had a bigger room.

When we returned from our first afternoon out, I found a cake and birthday card in the room, such a lovely thought.

Room Tip: 911 was a smaller room, ask for a bigger one

Dear pink-sparkly-shoes; we were really happy to have you with us celebrating your birthday and glad to know you have enjoyed your stay and was a good end to your trip and holiday.
Such a pity we didn't communicate better in regards to the room, most of the rooms at the hotel, our Metropolitan Room are 54 sqm and probably the largest room in Bangkok at their price range.
We only have a few of the smaller, City Room, which as you've mentioned are cozy and a really good value, which some of our guests find very convenient, but definitely the Metropolitan Room is the essence of space and calmness that makes the Metropolitan a very special hotel.
Hopefully we will be welcoming you back very soon, please let us know on advance and we will make sure a Metropolitan room is ready for you. Warm regards, Jorge Monje.

The Metropolitan is a great choice for a luxurious stay in Bangkok. It is a very stylish hotel set back from the main road in Sathorn. The ambience is very nice, with a plush design, and lots of dark earthy tones. We had relatively small rooms at the ends of the corridors, but they were perfectly fine for one. Most rooms are much larger and would be great for couples. The pool area is superb. There is also a fabulous restaurant - Nahm by David Thompson, but you'll need to book ahead. My only small gripe would be the location. Although it is well situated for access to restaurants in nearby Silom, the Skytrain is a little further than I'd like. I had to use cabs more than usual for this stay in Bangkok. Will stay here again though.

I have stayed there for 2 nights and I had a wonderful time there. The service is very friendly and very helpful. We love the very modern and very tasteful interior and the location is great. One of the most comfortable bed I slept in. I will come back there anytime....

This is my second time staying there. Seriously love it. Luxurious without opulence. Understated resort deco. Friendly and helpful service staff. Always with alternative suggestions if "Plan A" fails. Yummy and comforting food with a twist for breakfast spread. Luxurious bed with pillows that hugs you nicely to sleep and let you wake up feeling refreshed! Centrally located yet quietly tucked away from non-stop onslaught traffic of people and vehicles. Love it.

I've stayed here five or six times now and there's always the same fantastic service in rooms which are funky, chic and quiet. The floor and furniture are made from the same dark wood and the bed comes with luxurious duvets and pillows. The breakfast is amazing and on this latest visit, my partner and I also ate lunch there, despite the wide range of choice locally, as we enjoyed the healthy salads and smoothies so much. The Met Bar is good but expensive for cocktails.

I'd recommend choosing a Metropolitan Room, as the price is only a little more than the basic option and it comes with a lounge area and a huge bathroom. The hotel is in the embassy district so you'll need to grab a (cheap) taxi to the main sights or the river, but there are some amazing restaurants nearby and the Vertigo bar on top of the Banyan Tree Hotel next door is perfect for a cocktail at sunset.

The staff at the Metropolitan are always incredibly friendly and happy to help, and we appreciated the welcome from the general manager, who upgraded us to have a free wi-fi connection because of my repeat visits. This was hugely helpful in keeping in touch with home.

Dear Kevininthesofa, it's Always good to have you back!!! Greetings from your home in Bangkok and thanks for your great advice and feedback.
I would say that any Metropolitan Insider would do the same recommendations as you, indeed our Metropolitan rooms are great, probably the largest, most comfortable in their category and rate range in Bangkok.
Glow as you know offers and incredibly creative and healthy cuisine and our very renowned Thai restaurant Nahm a unique and traditional Thai food.
We will share your kind compliments with the team, we are very privileged to have beautiful and helpful group of people, looking forward to take care of our many guests and friends.
I hope to welcome you back very soon, let us know if we can be of any help on advance. Warm regards, Jorge Monje

Metropolitan by COMO is an absolutely amazing hotel. When you first arrive you will notice the wonderful central location and the hip modern style. As soon as walking into the lobby you will be met by not just the friendliest and most helpful staff but the amazing comforting scents from the COMO Shambhala Spa Invigorate collection.

The rooms are spacious and unbelievably comfortable. They style is inviting and the relaxing. Expect an amazing fruit plate, a bed that is so comfortable that you don't want to get out of and a shower and tub that can make the Metropolitan by COMO a complete destination experience own it's own.

There are 3 restaurants on the property, Met bar, Glow and Nham. All three offer different styles of dining and all are absolutely amazing. From the fantastic and filling healthy selections at Glow outside of the Como Shambhala spa to the luxurious fine dining at Nham every restaurant offers a unique dining experience.

I have not been to a property where the the staff has been more helpful. From the time you arrive in every area your needs are anticipated. Everyone goes out of their way to ensure you have the absolute best experience while visiting the hotel. Everything about the Metropolitan Bangkok is exceptional and I would definitely recommend staying here on your next trip to Bangkok.

I recently stayed in the Metropolitan in Bangkok for three nights on the first part of a two week holiday in Thailand. My partner and I stayed for three nights and I was immediatley impressed about how well this hotel is run and how much you are made to feel welcomed and valued.

The design and feel of the hotel is superb, it's straightlined and modern feel definiately gives you the feel of a rich environment but at the same time a very homely atmosphere is created (mainly due to the superb staff).

The room we stayed in was sizable and very comfortable, anything you require in addition to your room is only a phonecall away and is actioned immediately. We ordered breakfast room service on two occassions and I have to say it was superb, arguably the best food I had throughout the entire two week vacation.

There is no question that I would stay here again and I'd like to thank you for making the first three nights of our amazing holiday perfect.
