“Riverside Sanctuary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

A week of time out to begin a writing project was well supported by a warm, fuss free and quiet, affordable 5 star pampering.

Riverside convenience allows 'easy on the mind' river commute to sites if you are into them or nearby mall/market offerings.

My room (2405) on the 24 floor allowed easy access to horizon lounge. Here private alcoves overlook the river and my four hour 'productive breakfasts' yielded a wealth of creative dividends for me.

My room was spotless and spacious and excellently appointed in 'Thai modern' mingling traditional wall hangings and carved plaques with a tasteful marble bathroom.

The window seat couch alcove was a cosy nook for dreaming far above the Bangkok city hussle.

Well trained staff all know what to do and when. Seamless service.

There are a couple plusher hotels (by a slim margin) that you'll pay 40% premium for. But only one or two may come close in the location stakes.

I will return!!

Just returned from a four night stay in a Horizon Club room. The room, which overlooked the Chao Phraya River, was very comfortable and benefited from window seat allowing uninterrupted views over the river. The Horizon Club was a true sanctuary throughout the day and evening with the staff catering for your every need.
Overall a beautifully appointed hotel in a terrific location next to the river and a five minute walk to the STR. As always, the hotel staff are at the core of the hotel and here, without exception, they were superb. Housekeeping, that quiet and unseen group, kept my room in pristine condition. Horizon Club staff, friendly, efficient and charming. Do I recommend this hotel, yes, it's a class act. A last tip, if you need any clothes laundered the service is excellent. Had my clothes collected in the morning and they were returned in the afternoon. If the hotel had to run classes on ironing shirts I would go. My shirts looked better than when Ralph Lauren sent them from the factory.

Room Tip: Horizon Club room overlooking the river.

Went here quite late at might and they were happy to serve us as non residents. Lovely location on the river, great food and excellent service. Lychee martini awesome. Maitre d even brought me mosquito repellent when he saw I was being bitten! Excellent attention to detail.

We stayed at the Shangri-La a couple of times now over the last few years and were never disappointed. The staff is very friendly and always ready to lend a helping hand.

The check-in and check-out is quick and haslefree. The rooms are well equipped, everything is working and most importantly, they are very clean.

The pool area is very well taken care off, the staff always ready to fill up your water glass (for free!).

If you are in Bangkok this hotel should be your choice, make sure you book a room with river view and if possible on a high floor, the sigths, especially the sunset are truly amazing.

Thank you Shangri-La, see you next year.

Room Tip: Room with river view

Shangri-La is known for her good services, clean room, varieties of facilities and relatively expensive. This one at Bangkok riverside meets all the standard plus it's lying in a great location near the river with great transportation. BTS station, hotel ferry to Asiatique and public ferry along the river leads you to all major tourist site.

Room Tip: Go for the corner suite with balcony to enjoy the view of the river. The one I had with a view of t...

Without adding histrionics or exaggeration this hotel exemplifies class with classic style, beautiful rooms and the ability to make one feel a slice of royalty and how they live.

Particularly impressed with the strong culture of the brand and vote which resonates throughout their staff and attitude to guests which filters through I to first class service. A must stay if visiting the Shangri-la if you are in Bangkok.

No need to be repetitive here. We absolutely loved the Shangri-La, as have many other reviewers. The staff could not do enough for us, and always with a smile. Our balcony overlooking the river was a pleasure to use. The room was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Cannot think of any negatives. Definitely will stay at the Shangri-La again when we have the pleasure of visiting this fascinating city.

Room Tip: Definitely worth the money to have a room with a balcony overlooking the river.
