the conrad is in sukumvit..but harder to get to. the service is not as i expected. the rooms are a bit old. if i am in bangkok for leisure, i think the hilton millenimum shangri la , the sheraton orchid or the marriott along the river is more preferbale.. but for business and shopping the conrad is good.

THis is my 10th trip to Bangkok and my 6th time staying at the Conrad and I am looking forward to the 7th time. As soon as you arrive from the doorman to the front desk you are greated with a welcome smile and kind words. The rooms are very nice and the beds, hmm still trying to figure out how to get that bed home to my house:) I stay on the Executive floors with access to the Executive lounge. The atmosphere in the lounge is a very relaxing one. The food and drink is always great. The staff in the executive is first class and always professional in every way. There are always there to help you with anything or any information you may need. Yes, the Conrad is not cheap, but well worth the price for the quality of accomidations and the professional staff.

This hotel has all you would expect from a 5 star hotel. The problem is that it took two hours to get here from the airport and that was using the toll road!

It is not near the attractions so again the situation with the traffic makes this undesirable for tourists.

We had paid to spend our last night here but we lost the money and instead stayed at the best western near the hotel. Such a good decision.

For a tourist I would personally choose somewhere close to the attractions. Better still avoid Bangkok and go to Chiang Mai which is a smaller version of Bangkok but without the grid locked roads!

But the hotel was clean, lovely pool area to relax on the 7th floor and great food.

The first thing that hits when you get into your room (classic for me) was that the bathroom is transparent - with some exploration you will find the speaker knob next to your tub/sink - so that means, its for you to watch tv on the throne and the bath! how awesome is that! it is also adjoined to a shopping mall (called All Seasons Place) which is convenient.

i would recommend this hotel if the following were the criteria (reasons):
- you are willing to pay for it (pricey)
- you are serious about keeping fit on your holiday (most well-equipped gym i had ever seen, and ive seen quite a few)
- you are there on work (the location is parallel to the main CBD - radchaphisek road and rama Iv, most offices are located on the same road as the Conrad, or parallel to it and the staff are very helpful and efficient)
- you want a personal touch to your stay (the staff always knew my room number and who i was travelling with and the concierge always salute you correctly)
- you want to be near to radchaphisek road (the road where most of the offices are)
- you want to do fine dining and shopping (the restaurant in teh hotel is supposed to be top-notch, otherwise, long-table, bedsupeprclub, vertigo, baan kanitha and suan lum night bazaar (cheap option) are 15 mins away by cab, barring no traffic jams, and should cost no more than 80 baht)
- you want convenience (there is a tops supermarket in the shopping mall adjoining the Conrad and the restaurants in the shopping mall are good)
- you like being away from the dinge and hustle-bustle (the Conrad is an oasis of cleanliness and relaxation - however, you wont be experiencing the real colourful inside of bangkok if you dont walk down sukhumvit road at least ONCE)

i would warn you of the following:
- it is not close to the hotspots so cabs may take you for a joyride, there is a short cut through the park to get to radchaphisek road which takes 10 mins, and 50 baht max, however if caught in a jam due to not taking a short-cut (like me!) you may get stuck on sukhumvit road for an hour, pay 90 baht, and still have to walk for nearly an hour backt ot he hotel - in hindsight, if stuck in traffic take the BTS train which is all along sukhumvit road)
- the nearest station to the Conrad is Ploenchit but it still takes you at least 10 mins to walk to the Conrad from there
- the breakfast is LOTS OF bread and bread and bread, the selection of protein packed meals were limited to the omellettes and 5 dishes (3 only of which were real protein)
- be careful of photocopying your work - it cost me 330 baht for 37 pages (which is expensive by malaysian standards by 1000%)
- you wanted to be near to the hotspots this is not the place for you and some other hotels nearer to bustling areas may be the thing for you.

Other than that, as i said, the stay was good as it was relaxing and beautiful. i felt like i never wanted to leave!!!! which means, if you werent working, you wouldn be seeing much of bangkok ;) if you were working, Conrad makes you feel like rushing everything just to get 'home' to relax. The service was excellent and the staff make no fuss about anything you ask. they will arrange reservations, find restaurants and give you answers and tips on any restaurant or tours you may want to do inless than 2 minutes. all in all, it was a great experience for me, but my company was paying for it, so i didnt feel the pinch. if you have the money, go for it!

I have stayed at Conrad at least 10 times since its opening. It started out very good. Now the housekeeping is not up to par for a hotel of this calibre. For example, the first night, I took a shower at 10pm and there was not sufficient hot water. The chambermaid who turned down the bed only gave one pair of slippers. I called and spoke to the night duty manager who promised to remind the staff to put in an extra pair of slippers for the following night. No such luck! For the next two nights, we did not bother to call about the rain shower dripping down with cold water constantly, no candlelight in the bathroom (unlike previous visits), etc. The hotel is looking tired and the rates are getting higher. Try other hotel. They are sitting on their laurels.

I've stayed at a number of Conrad hotels and this is pretty typical of the Conrad experience. The room was comfortable and clean (and decorated with Thai items which is a nice touch). A nice selection of fruit and candies was provided each day. We had access to the lounge which had good service and ate one night in the restaurant which was good. Only downside for this hotel is the location which is not the best - you need to get a taxi or make the short walk to the BTS to get to anything of interest.
