Very good but it did not have the same standard of luxury of its counterparts in Kuala Lumpur or Singapore (I stayed in Bangkok for four nights). The aspect that rankled the most was that when I booked this hotel back in the middle of 2011 (for my trip to Bangkok in February 2012) I informed them that my flight would get in early in the morning & I would therefore require an early check-in. I asked them to inform me of any extra charge this might entail. I heard nothing except the confirmation of my booking.
Nearer my arrival date I checked that they had noticed my request and then was informed that they would 'probably be able to give me early check-in but they could not guarantee it and therefore I should pay for an extra day - 6300BHT (£136.95). I paid this as I was not prepared to wait from 8.30am to 2pm for a room if it was not ready on arrival (having had a journey of some 20 hours to get there!). Not good Shangri-La especially when the other two mentioned did not charge me for the same thing...wonder if I would haVe got the early check in anyway?
The hotel charge for transportation from/to the aiport is extortionate (this for ALL hotels) the ordinary taxi fare, which you should agree with the driver before hand, is 400BHT and should include all tolls etc. Compared to 2500++BHT...
