During short breaks at Bangkok my favourite hotel is definitely the Peninsula. It has a slightly more casual atmosphere than other 5 stars, which makes it a more relaxing experience than the Oriental or 4 Seasons. Dress code is not rigorously enforced, you can sit at the riverside restaurant in shorts, t-shirt and sandals. It is the tropics after all.
Restaurant and food is 1st rate for quality and value. Evening buffet for 1,500 ish is the highlight of the stays there. All the crab, lobster, kobe beef, anything you think of its there in the buffet. Very professional staff, no dramas at reception.
Acess to central Bangkok is easy after using the free shuttle ferry service to Saphan Taksin BTS station.More
