This hotel is pretty amazing. It is a genuine model of efficiency - everything happens slickly, quickly and effectively. But none of it feels mechanical in that it is all delivered with a very personal feel.
The hotel is located on the Chao Phraya river and I understand that the hotel is designed to give all rooms a river view, which are stunning. The river location means that the hotel has a boat service that connects resident to the Chao Phraya River Express - the very exciting and convenient boat service that makes it easy to get to the main cultural sights in the city.
The staff make the whole experience stress and effort free. They booked and obtained train tickets for us and if a taxi was needed it would magically appear within 30 seconds. They would give the drive a card indicating the destination and also give you a little card to hand to a drive when you booked a return journey - as not all Bangkok taxi drivers appear to know where some key locations actually are!!
The rooms are finished to a very high standard - nothing here is badly finished, poorly presented or scruffy. We stayed on the 22nd floor and there was absolutely no noise from the city or other parts of the hotel.
The beds are large and comfortable, the AC works perfectly and the bathrooms in the superior rooms are just fantastic - I loved my younger son's face when he realised he could watch TV from the bath! Even the shampoos etc are really excellent products. The curtains are electronically controlled, which is a great touch. Free WIFI also with each room and location with in the hotel complex.
The breakfast caters for all tastes and is beautifully cooked and presented. The bar is small but has great staff who are attentive without being intrusive. The concierge desk is very efficient, knowledgeable and friendly - so a great source of valuable information to make you day easier.
The hotel is, in general terms, very elegant. Everything and everybody associated with it is so well trained and effective at what they do. Bangkok is a very hectic experience and to start and finish the day at the Peninsula is something that cannot be recommended highly enough! It is a classy, top notch venue - not cheap but really worth it.
