Shangri-La hotel Bangkok was an excellent choice for a designated business meeting hotel. Check-in was quick and efficient, despite arriving very late at night. The lobby area is huge and beautiful. My room was spacious, had a nice working and sitting area and the bed was very comfy. I had a gorgeous view of the river and the city. In-room WiFi and Air-conditioning functioned without a hitch. The breakfast on the large terrace overlooking the river was one of my favorite parts. Breakfast buffet was huge, with lots delicious of options for any taste. You can order coffee in a pot or from the espresso machine. Espresso machine was the only way to go for me - excellent coffee. The only thing for me was that a coffee machine was not available in the room. I asked for one to be supplied but was told it's not available for my room. There was a kettle and bottled water provided in the room and instant Nescafe packets. I used it as my first cup before going down for breakfast and having the "real" coffee. If there was any suggestion for improvement, then having a coffee machine in the room would be it, or at least available on on demand (for people like me who need a cup upon awakening). The hotel is located in a great area and you can take a free shuttle boat to Icon Mall directly from the hotel dock or to the Asiatique night market from a dock 5 min walk away. Overall, a very nice and comfortable stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel. Read less

We enjoyed celebrating Loy Kratong at Shangrila lobby lounge because of the superb service by the waiters who was manage by Khun Joy. The night became even more special because of the music care of no other than the soulful singer of Bangkok, Ms. Lilibeth. I highly recommend to listen to her amazing voice

I have been using the hotels of the Shangri-La chain in Singapore, Hong Kong (both), Shanghai, Jangon,... but the one where I stay most frequently is the one in BKK. This year I have already been 5 times for a total of over 20 nights which, by itself, is a testament to the value of their accomodation proposal. The rooms are very comfortable, the room service is excellent and the view is breathtaking: I love opening the curtains in the morning and admiring the skyline over the Chao Praya with the boats navigating. Additional benefits are the magnificent hall with piano and singer at night, and the direct communication with the BTS station after a very long walk through the corridors enjoying the air conditioning. I just left yesterday and the previous week end the Hotel was hosting the ASEAN leaders meeting. I believe the Korean delegation stayed at the hotel and I was in the hall when Xi Jinping, China leader, arrived with an impressive security detail. Hosting the important meeting for many Asian countries is another objective recognition of the quality of the Hotel. Finally, the location is fantastic between the river and Silom road, very close to the Jewelry Trade Center where everybody can go and buy gemstones at prices that for Europeans are simply ridiculous.
