We stayed 3 nights in the Krungthep wing after a long flight from London. The rooms were lovely and huge, however a little dated. There were little surprises left in our room every afternoon which was a delight for the kids. They had complimentary drinks and snacks in their lounge every afternoon and evening which was pleasant. Though, the Krungthep wing doesn’t have any restaurants. When you order anything a la carte or through room service it is extremely slow as the food has to arrive from the main hotel. Concierge was average - a real hit and miss service. The location was great - facing the river and a boat ride away from their famous Asiatique market. Overall, a nice city hotel. Read less
