Lovely stay in a beautiful hotel. Staff were all friendly and helpful with any queries or requirements. Room was lovely and large and had a view of the river. Had room service breakfast which was of a high standard. Used the boat service to go across to the restaurant on the other side of the river and also to go...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 April 2017

We have been to the Mandarin many times on our visits to Bangkok and never been disappointed with it. From the moment we were met at the airport by the hotel car and driver to the greeting by 2 of the managers at the hotel welcoming us back we felt like we'd returned home. There had been some changes since...

For below SGD500/N, one could enjoy the best unique Thai hospitality and comfort in Mandarin Oriental just by the grand and vibrant Chao Phraya River flowing southward into the sea. Fantastic Thai spicy but not totally hot Thai cuisines and calamansi and lemon grass drinks and heavenly desserts are among what the well-groomed global trotting gourmets would be too intoxicated...

The Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok is supposed to be one of the world's best hotels. My husband and I stayed there in April 2017 and it fell short. It simply is not worth the price. There are nice things about the hotel (like the friendly staff) but our room was incredibly worn down (scratches on the walls, stains on the...

I absolutely hate leaving this hotel. I go hear for rest and relaxation. You may find that strange as Bangkok is one of the most crazy, noisy and hectic cities in the world but the Mandarin is like the Vatican, it seems to have its own aura and rules. Everything here is immaculate but probably the overriding thing is the...

Absolutely loved our stay at the Mandarin. The decor is just fantastic you really feels like you are on a movie set. The service provided by the staff is simply perfect. We loved having lunch at their restaurant which has truly superb views on the river. This is not a hotel but an experience in itself! Love it

People consider this a really great hotel, and it is. Incredible lobby. We spent three nights here.The room was only on the third floor, but we had a nice view of the river and the city.

Once upon a time the Mandarin Oriental was a boutique hotel housed in an enormous building. Under the legendary manager Kurt W. it seemed to be a single organism. Everyone knew your name 3 minutes after you checked in. They knew what you wanted before you yourself knew. It was very personal. It was a great love affair of ours....

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
