The Peninsula Bangkok

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2012

The hotel staff was always so nice to be around and they were very gracious as they provided us with a nice bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries and a free dinner to help us celebrate our special occasion.

We stayed at the hotel in a balcony room. It had a gorgeous view and it was really wonderful to be looking out on bangkok's skyline at night. The bed was very comfortable and the shower and bathroom was big and clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Bangkok.

We had a great experience at this hotel and thought it had a really interesting location. Since it was across the river from the main part of the city, it had a lovely private shuttle boat that took you across whenever you wanted. It was so nice to be on the boat that it actually ended up being a highlight of our trip!

the negatives:
1. the room was rather small, not a lot of room for luggage.
2. the room always seemed rather damp
3. The technology here is a little dated when compared to the Peninsula Shanghai, though it's still nice.

Thanks for The Peninsula Bangkok preparing for a unforgettable and the most impressive romantic candle-lit dinner for me and my girlfriend on 25 May, 2012, the date I proposed to my girlfriend. All the members, managers and attendants preparing for our special event are very nice and sweet. To be the most impressive thing, they settled a fabulous firework show on the Chao Phraya River without noticing me at first when I kneeled and gave the ring to my girl. So I was also surprised by the amazing firework and the warm service they gave to us. I and my girlfriend are very thankful for Peninsula Bangkok for giving us a sweetest memory ever.

The Peninsula was a fabulous stopover returning from Europe to Australia. The service and amenties were exceptional, access to the ferry to go up and down the river was just great. The staff could not be any more helpful. The room overlooking the river was just amazing very large (we were upgraded) and just delightful. We will be back again.

Room Tip: Our corner suite was just perfect, 9th floor or so as I recall.

The location of Peninsula, Bangkok is very nice next to the Chao Parayah river. It is very comfortable and pricing is very reasonable. The quality of service is very good and the key business areas are easily accessible from the hotel. It has its own dedicated private ferry service which makes it very comfortable.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a view of the river.

The Peninsula is located on the bank of the Chao Praya River, it has it's own private deck where you can get a free shuttle to the nearest subway or to other touristic destinations.
The hotel exteriors are very nice, the swimming pool is big, no too crowded, service at the pool is just perfect.

We were in a large suite which was perfect. We had a valet at our disposal, cleaning was done quickly and in room equipments is at his top. You can plug your iphone everywhere, you can control everything in the room from curtains opening to mood lights from your nightstand.

The room was really.

The two oustide restaurants are good, the thai one is a bit over-pricy for what you get but overall it's fine. Breakfast buffet is fine.

The Peninsula Bangkok is truly one of the great hotels of the world.the location along the river is fantastic. With the ferry service provided by the hotel you ceanothus reach several destination in minutes in the coolness of the river which is are spit from the oppressive Bangkok heat and humidity. The rooms are classically elegant. I read some reviews that say the rooms are dated but the classical style of them will always be perfect. They are timeless. Breakfast along the river is extensive and delicious. The pool is an oasis and the spa is well worth the visit and the cost. We also booked a tour with the concierge which was also great. I also highly recommend the hotel car service especially to and from the airport. The in room check in was also nice as we arrived late and spending time in the lobby after a 17 hour flight would have been unwelcome. All in all highly recommended for a truly luxurious stay.

The Peninsula in Bangkok is, by far, my best ever hotel experience. My wife and I stayed there for a couple of days in May, 2012, while on a multi-stop tour of Malaysia and Thailand. This is a tall (maybe 25 floors) building entirely dedicated to the hotel. The service at this hotel was beyond amazing. Breakfast comes with the room and the array of food choices literally catered to ALL ethnic backgrounds. The room we stayed in was on the 12th floor and we looked out over the city and the river. The hotel sits right on the river and one can catch the hotel boats to cross to the other side where you can catch the sky-tram into the city or the city river boats that run up and down the river with multiple stops. The hotel grounds include a wonder swimming pool, a spa, and a great bar and restaurant that is positioned right along the river front. It was fun and entertaining to sit at the bar or in the restaurant watching the boat traffic on the river and enjoying the scene. If you are looking for a place to hang out in exotic Bangkok that is truly relaxing, give The Peninsula a try. The rates were amazingly low for such a wonderful hotel.

Room Tip: Definitely get a room that is on the North-facing side of the building so you can look out over the...
