Normally I would give 4.5 stars for this hotel, but you cannot activate this. It is truly a luxury hotel in a superb location near the chao praya river. The hotel staff is very helpful, friendly and fluent in English. The deluxe suite is overviewing the Chao Praya river. What a view, just breathtaking. The breakfast has a huge variety of fresh food. Absolutely fantastic. Also the boats from the hotel bringing you across the river are hop on, hop off and with very regular river crossings. Unfortunately our room was not so clean. Dirty fingers on the shower door and also dirt on the cupboards. Otherwise I would give them the full five stars.

Room Tip: Take a deluxe suite overlooking the Chao Praya river : breathtaking views

This is a very nice hotel right on the river with water taxi service. The room was beautiful with a killer view of the river and city. The room was very comfortable with high tech everything. I especially loved being able to control the blinds from the bed. The bathroom had separate sinks, beautiful tub and shower. There was a separate walk-in area for unpacking, suitcases, etc. Ate at the restaurant twice and it was not great, but not too bad but expensive.

We spent a weekend at this hotel just before Christmas, it was a fantastic experience! When we checked it at around 2am they made sure our three rooms were all together on the same floor.

That staff here are extremely attentive and happy to help. Whilst we were there the Thai public held peaceful protests around the city and the staff made sure we new what was happening, when, where and how it would impact us as tourists.

The food, from the beginning of the day to the end of that day was brilliant, the breakfast buffet had a huge variety (including bread and butter pudding!) and the food throughout the rest of the day was top quality.

The hotel had been decorated for Christmas in a Western style, the decorations were quaint and tasteful - whilst we were there we had lunch at another hotel and the quality in decorations was a lot lower, which made The Peninsula stand out even more.

My only issues was with the automatic curtains and connecting light switches. During the night (only one night mind) the curtains kept opening by themselves and the limp on the desk kept turning on by itself. Eventually I just stopped trying to close/turn off and they sorted themselves out.

I will definitely be staying there again if i et the opportunity.

Its hard to find a hotel experience which is not overboard, but tailored at providing an elegant understated accommodation stay.
We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. A great position on the river with excellent views. We were in a suite, which was perfectly laid out and plenty of space.
Breakfasts were extensive with a wonderful choice of freshly cooked food and just about anything you want.
Staff very helpful until we came home and key didn't work. This could have been handled so much better. There were about 5 concierges just hanging, who told us they could do nothing about it, which was a joke and reception was too busy for us and very unhelpful. I would say that reception and concierge let down the rest of the team and they are a very important element. That was a shame and why I needed to rate the service as average.

We stayed at The Peninsula for three nights and had a wonderful experience. There really isn't much to say I didn't enjoy: the food was very good, starting from the breakfast buffet to the Thai dinner.
As I mentioned in the title, its the details that make the difference and were you can tell the hotel is perfectly managed: complementary ice cream sampling in the pool, a wet towel and water at the spa... even the river shuttle to take you across to different points, works well.
The rooms are luxurious and very well kept with all kinds of ammenities from Cd player to a fax machine!
I wouldn't think twice if I come back to Bangkok. Well done for The Peninsula.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the river. A nice view!

This hotel is pure luxury. We were a party of five and I had booked a Grand Deluxe Suite with a connecting room for our daughters. Upon arrival (at 1 o'clock in the morning) we were upgraded to the Peninsula Suite. To say the least... it was INCREDIBLE! Not only was it spacious but the interior design was beautiful. I have stayed at many Peninsula Hotels, New York, Chicago, Hong Kong, and on a regular basis, Beverly Hills. I have to say that Hong Kong is still my favorite but this was a close second. The service was five star. The only complaint I have is that the Thai dinner at the in house Thai restaurant was a little disappointing, but the setting was lovely. The breakfasts were opulent, the afternoon tea was very good, and the poolside dining was very tasty, especially the pomelo and prawn salad! It is definitely a world class hotel. Now off to Four Seasons Chiang Mai!

Room Tip: If you want a major splurge, the Peninsula Suite would be hard to beat ANTWHERE in the world.
