I was overwhelmed from the moment we landed in Bangkok. We decided to book transport from the airport with the hotel BMW, to avoid the hassle of having to look for a taxi and negotiate the fare after an intercontinental flight. Consequently, we were given an upgrade, and got a spacious room on the 27th floor. On arrival we did not even had to do the check-in at the reception desk, but we were accompanied straight to our room.
The room had a sitting area, a desk and chair on the corner with large windows, and a roomy entrance, besides a large double bed. The view on the river and on the city was great. The bathroom was also very large with two washbasins, separate shower and toilet and bathtub. This was more like a studio flat than a hotel room.
Breakfast was delicious, and breakfast room nicely arranged for such a big hotel. It is also possible to sit outdoor but given the humidity, perhaps sitting inside was a better option. The Peninsula is located on the river and offers transport with the hotel boat to the opposite riverbank. Therefore, it is very easy to catch a boat for excursions to the temples area upriver and also to the sky train, to go to city centre.
It is better to avoid the chaotic traffic, but if you must catch a taxi, ask for taxi with meter. The fare is around 70 Bath from the city centre, otherwise taxi drivers might ask you up to 300 Bath.
On departure, we were escorted to the airport and helped with the check-in and stamps for tax refund.
Only a spoiled person could find something wrong with this hotel. I loved it and hope to go back.
