We stayed in the peninsula in August for 2 nights. This as been our second stay at this hotel. Upon arrival, the check-in process was very swift and we were escorted up to our rooms. To our surprise one of our two rooms was upgraded to a suite, which was very spacious and elegantly furnished and had a big bathroom with a TV by the bathtub.
We stayed on the 28th floor and had a beautiful view over the river and the city.
For breakfast we went to the River Terrace and Cafe and had the buffet breakfast there. The choices were overwhelming: Thai fare like curries, Chinese dim sum, fresh fruit with a mango station, eggs prepared to ones liking, western cheeses and meats, a variety of breads and rolls, etc.
Even though the breakfast was buffet style, the river terrace had a quaint atmosphere. The service however was lacking. It took too long to clear the tables of used dishes, which kept piling up and the personnel wasn't too friendly and attentive.
We also tried this restaurant at night, buffet style, and found the same to be true.
The bar next door has a good variety of cocktails, friendly service, but the chairs and sofas are a bit outdated, made out of plastic and uncomfortable.
The swimming pool was especially popular with our kids, but doesn't have a kids area where the little ones can stand up in.
The cabanas are a nice touch and free of charge ice-cream is served occasionally.
The spa is great and has a very friendly reception staff. The atmosphere is tranquil and relaxing. We tried a couple of facials and massages and were impressed.
Upon a swift and friendly check-out, we asked for our luggage to be brought down to the river boat, which was so fast and efficient that it arrived there before us. They even had a boat from a different hotel we were going to already waiting for us.
All in all a great upscale, luxury hotel to which we will certainly return to next time we are in Bangkok.
