“The River of Kings Hotel”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

The Shangri-la Hotel offers guests a lesson in inspired graciousness. I booked a weekend special deal while in Bangkok. To my great surprise the hotel had upgraded me to a room with "river view". It was literally a window to watching the river traffic both day and night and "free show".

No hotel in my several trips to Bangkok surpasses Shangri-la; its well trained staff is always prepared to assist and make a guest feel at home. A visitor will not be disappointed.

We truly enjoyed the 4 nights spent at the Kungthrep wing. Beautiful room and view, check in in bedroom. Excellent location of this hotel very close to the Sky Train and boat peer, very easy to visit main attractions.
The only bad experience we had was the Salathip restaurant, not worth the money we paid. Angelini restaurant is expensive, but great pasta and pizza.

Endless hospitality from the moment we landed at BKK airport to the day we returned when 3 people were waiting in the foyer to see us off with a souvenir, the day's newspaper and of course a cab back to the airport.
It's hard to list everything that was on offer from this hotel but the overall experience left our memories of Kempinski and Taj far behind.

Room Tip: We had a river-view double bedroom on the 15th floor, kitted out with a gigantic King bed and an ext...

Ok. Listen. If you're over 40 and walk around as if the whole world owes you something, this is the place for you. Anyone else, steer clear. This overpriced, over-pretentious, underwhelming hotel is easily replaceable. Walk two blocks to Lebua, at least they embrace how overhyped their hotel is. S-La treated us like children, following us around asking (no joke) upwards of ten times what our room number was, just to verify we were actually staying there. The pool staff was rude and the bar staff was very unaccommodating. Be sure to buy beer from the 7-11 before you go, or else you're paying almost 4x as much! So silly. Silver lining: great people watching and the PadThai was actually delicious, likely because we drank our beers so fast, just to avoid the awkward judgment stares from the staff.
You can do better than this place, I believe in you.

We have chosen the Shangri-La for our first trip in Bangkok and we have been very satisfied. First of all, we ordered a car with driver who picked us at the airport in very good conditions. Then the room with a balcony had a fantastic view on the main river of the city. The swimming pool is a delicious place and you have very good meals at the restaurant. Last but not least, you are at a five minutes walking distance of the Sathon Pier to go around and visit Bangkok.
All in all a great remember our 3 nights stay at Shangri-La Bangkok !

As a regular to Bangkok I always enjoy the Shangri La experience. Comfortable rooms, efficient service and good food. Also nice pocket of Bangkok by the river. Great leisure facilities with nice pool. Overall whilst it is expensive it is still one of the best business hotel experiences in the City. The only thing it lacks is a bar with atmosphere but there is no shortage of these locally.
