COMO Metropolitan Bangkok
Ranked #18 of 883 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 February 2014

We are frequent visitors to Bangkok ( one of our favorite Asian cities) and have stayed in a variety of hotels here in the past. The Metropolitan did not disappoint and in my mind represents good value. Despite being located on busy Sathorn it is located far enough back from the street so that noise from the traffic is not an issue. In fact its off the street location may make it somewhat difficult for taxi drivers to locate the hotel or the entrance (there is a sign) if they are not familiar with the area or the establishment. Just tell them that it is located next to the Sukkothai, which by the way is also a marvelous hotel but with a much higher tab than the Metropolitan. Give the latter a try if you want to splurge. The Metropolitan is a sleek, small hotel with a minimalistic flair which we like. Our check in went smoothly and we were offered an upgrade to our room, due undoubtedly to low occupancy , since our visit coincided with the Shut Bangkok Down protests by the Yellow Shirts. The staff were kind enough to provide detailed instructions on areas of the city to avoid, and which transportation to use during the protests. The room proved to be quite spacious, clean and modern. In fact it was one of the largest rooms we have occupied during our trips to South East Asia or China, possibly reflecting the upgrade. The air conditioning in the room we were given initially was not quite up to par, but the management happily transferred us to another comparable room. Fresh fruit and bottled water was provided daily. The bathroom was modern and clean with all the amenities. All in all, our initial experience left a very favorable impression. The Metropolitan also has a pool on the ground level for those needing to cool off after a hard day on the streets or at Chatuchak, as well as a small fitness center for the flabby among us needing to work off a pound or two. It also houses the award winning Nahm restaurant (separate review), which is worth a try for some authentic Thai dishes from the era of Rama V. The hotel itself is well located near Lumphini Park and the Sala Daeng sky train ( line 2) station ( 15-20 min walk) or the Lumphini metro stop which we did not use due to concern with the protests, which by the way turned out to be more akin to a street fair or festival than a serious and benevolent political gathering. By the way, line 2 will take you to three of the the attractions tourists will undoubtedly want to visit: Siam Square with the fabulous Siam Paragon shopping mall (shop until you drop), Jim Thompsons house on the small San Sap Khlong (short walk from the end of the line at the National Stadium stop) and the Bangrak area by the Chao Phraya River. For the latter, get off at the Saphan Taksin stop, walk to the Oriental Hotel and treat yourself to a superb lunch in the terrace restaurant overlooking the river. Afterward, either take the river boat from the Oriental Pier (stop # 1) up the river to sites north such as the Royal Grand Palace ( Tha Chang stop- # 9), Wat Arun (Tha Tien stop- #8 and then the boat across the river), River City by the Royal Orchid Sharaton (Si Phraya stop- # 3 ) where you can bargain for antiques both fake and real, or just enjoy the river ride and the activity and then head back on a boat heading south. Or you may just opt to stay on land and walk along Charoen Krung and shop for antiques, trinkets, jewelry, silk products or have a suit made in a day or so. For the latter I would recommend A. Song Tailor on Soi 38 just off Charoen Krung near the Oriental. I have dealt with him since 2007 with great satisfaction, but he seemed to be in ill health the past visit. Hopefully his son will be able to pick up the slack. We only had breakfast once in the hotel restaurant and that was from the a la carte menu. What we ordered was quite tasty and well presented. We had the opportunity to view the buffet offerings which also appeared to be extensive and well done. The staff was friendly and the consierge helpful at all times during our stay. I can say that we will certainly use the Metropolitan again during our future visits to Bangkok.

Room Tip: May be difficult for taxi drivers to find since it is set back from the street. Tell then that it is...

Unfortunately we only stayed overnight, A complete luxury after filthy Koh Chang. A quiet, spacious room, comfortable bed even included a bowl of fresh fruit.
Walking distance to restaurants (there restaurant was booked out).
Breakfast was excellent, lots of choices
Easy check in / check out by friendly staff - we arrived early and were served a really refreshing mulberry tea.
Would definitely stay again, if travelling to Bangkok

I stayed at this property a few days before the election in Thailand thinking that its location would afford safety and quiet from the political protests bandied about in the international press. Fortunately, any social unrest did not occur near the Metropolitan, and the staff were ever mindful of their guests concerns and kept us updated on the best itineraries to avoid delays around the city.

The hotel is chic and glitzy, but also very comfortable and quiet, as it sits back from busy Sathorn Road. The Metropolitan Room I enjoyed was very spacious; fresh fruit was offered daily as was bottled drinking water. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and varied, catering for guests from many parts of the world. There is also an extensive room service menu with many offerings.

Check-in and check-out went smoothly, and there were no surprises on the bill. Overall, a very good stay.

Really enjoyed our stay. We were in a very spacious, quiet room and it was a fairly short cab ride (25 mins) to the city centre for a day of touristy activities. The breakfast is outstanding. Really healthy, fresh options that I am going to try to replicate at home. We thought this hotel was great for couples - laid back, sophisticated, and quiet.

Very relaxing hotel in the middle of busy Bangkok. Nahm restaurant is amazing... Not sure if really top 50 in the world or not but definitely worth a try!

We had a massage which was excellent and on a par with Capella hotel in Singapore ( best spa ever on our travels).

Staff could be a little more knowledgable on local area/willing to share info vs travel guides/tour guides or taxis.

Strange checkout experience but at the end of the day the bill was correct.

We live in Asia so traveling is easy for us, however the hotel did not give us confidence the staff really knew what was going on or advice to provide to a traveller not used to Asia and esp during the mild unrest in Bangkok.

I stayed here on a stop over. The staff were very helpful, helping me find an agent to get a visa for my next stop and even gave me some advice. The rooms are very clean, spacious, and the beds are extremely comfortable with an abundance of nice pillows. The vegetarian options on the menu were delicious.
