It was the 2nd time we spent the beginning of our Thailand travel at The Peninsula in Bangkok. We had been very satisfied the first time and have not been disappointed now during our stay in April.
All the in advance requested requirements like Early Check-In, special room request had been fulfilled (and we arrived very early at 7am).
We received again an upgrade into a spacious Grand Deluxe Suite (22nd floor) with separate living, bed-room, a nice bathroom and an additional toilette. Everything of course with a fascinating view onto the river.
The bed was comfortable, A/C was working properly, special pillow request was served within 5 minutes. The room was cleaned at least 2 times a day.
Lightening system and electronic curtains are a nice special amenity.
We enjoyed as well an excellent Spa service. Of course not that cheap as outside of the hotel and more than what normally Thailand stands for, but service was excellent, very professional.....and very welcome after a 11 hours flight.
Pool area is one of the best in Bangkok, agree with all of the statements made about, pool service very quick and friendly. It was a bit crowded in April but you always found a place. Water is not really refreshing as to the hot weather conditions outside.
Some people complain about the location, as it's not in the direct center. However, with the boat shuttle and the train, as well as with the very low priced taxis you can receive everything in a short time. The taxi will take you for less than 100Baht to the shopping centers at Silom Paragon or Central World.
Breakfast buffet is outstanding with good quality and a variety of European / American items but as well as typical Asian food.
We also enjoyed evening dinner at their restaurants, really recommended, sitting next to the river, enjoying a nice drink and being served by very professional and friendly people. Prices are higher than outside, but comparable with other 5 star restaurants.
Overall, what we liked at the Peninsula, was the international flair, the professional and very kind staff, they really treat everybody as a special and very important guest. Being asked - we will come back of course.
