Well what can I say about this hotel except for wonderful:-)
The hotel itself is beautiful, the staff are second to none and the location on the river is perfect. Both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed at stay in the Krungtherp Wing. Our room overlooked the gardens and the Chao Phraya River. We had a personal butler who was truely lovel. The complimentary breakfast was great as, was afternoon tea and, the inclusive cocktails and canapés in the evening were fab too. There are several restaurants in the hotel, all of which are good, but you can also enjoy a less formal bar snack in the lobby areas. Sunday brunch is a happy event which should not be missed. The skytrain and river boad are located just at the side of the hotel only a few minutes walk. We didn't use the skytrain but we did enjoy many trips ion the river boat. You must remember that it is a working river and some of the sights are not for the faint hearted but nonetheless it is a good experience. Althought we stayed in the Krungthrep wing we did go over to the Shangri-la wing on several occassions and we have to say we enjoyed this wing of the hotel every bit as much as the Krungthrep wing (although we did enjoy the private pool area in our wing)!! The spa treatments are excellent - well what else would you expect in a hotel of this standard.
The staff can not be faulted. They were excellent truely professional and always friendly, courteous, well informed and willing to help.
In summary I would say that we were not really fussed on Bangkok itself but we loved the Shangri la so much that we are thinking of returning just to enjoy the hote.
