Expert reviews

CNN review:

“More than 100 years old, the Mandrin Oriental’s Author’s Wing retains its magical aura with its picturesque parlors, each named for a scribe they once hosted, including the likes of Somerset Maugham, Joseph Conrad and Ernest Hemingway.”

Fodors review:

“Arguably the finest hotel in the city, the Colonial-styled property features multiple fine dining outlets, a world-famous spa, its own cooking school, and a bevy of other amenities that any high-end traveler will appreciate.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Bangkok.

Frommers review:

“The city’s oldest and best-known hotel has been frequented by Thai royalty and glitterati, as well as a long roster of sports and film stars. Established in 1876, the hotel’s original building has evolved into a modern, functional venue known for its exceptional service.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Bangkok.

Forbes review:

“Perched on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok is a long-standing landmark of traditional Thai-style luxury and a favorite among discerning travelers, celebrities, foreign dignitaries and even members of the Thai royal family.”

Travel+Leisure review:

“This stunning grande dame, whose on-property offerings are actually spread on both sides of the Chao Phraya River, is one of travel’s most iconic experiences. Dedicated butlers ensure you have the best possible stay, whether you need help finding the city’s top tailor or simply securing an appointment in the stunning 18-room spa.”

Featured in Travel+Leisure’s Top 100 Hotels in the World.

Telegraph review:

“Built in 1876 and still the classiest hotel in Bangkok, the Oriental, the preserve of wealthy travellers and cultural icons, is perfectly cosmopolitan while exuding traditional Thai charm – but the excellent service is what puts this institution into a hospitality league of its own.”

incredible services and surprise beyond their scope and your expectations. I order a take away food but input the wrong address. While I feel frustrated and the room phone rang. A warm voice from the hotel told me one of their staff drove the motor cycle and pick up the takeaway from the wrong address. It's in the mid night! Thanks for that staff and the hotel! Will strongly recommend friends to stay!

Great hotel, The best hotel I've ever been to


19 March 2023

Luxury to the max.

the history, the location on the river with boat transfers to the Siamicon mall. The choice of restaurants was fantastic. The room view of the river was great. Room size and decor was perfect.

All was great.

This was the least impressive hotel of our trip although it was double the price of the other five star hotels. They cle

Very good service. Personal concierge. Although this does not justify the exorbitant room rate.

The hotel is dated and overpriced. Although it underwent a refurb, the gym is across the river which rules out its use for people who are in a hurry.

Superb comfort driven by well trained and accommodating staff

The whole experience was faultless. Attention to detail made every just right.

We didn’t manage to get a seat/table a the jazz bar. Understandable as there is no booking and a small venue but it would have been nice once during our visit.

The best hotel with the best crew!

The legendary quality experience of Mandarin Oriental BKK is not a legend! It's true. It's the best hotel in Bangkok, with the best view, the best services and, above all, the best personnel and management. All is perfect, no glitches, no issues. This is THE hotel.

None, this is the perfection.

If you are a Mandarin fan, you will need to try it ONCE

Its an Oasis in the middle of Bangkok with lots of interesting history.

The entry/ lobby and welcome wasnt as WOW as we'd expected; the showers are small and the water pressure is very weak; unfortunately our room had a view to an ugly construction building (however we think you will find many places in Bangkok are under renovation); Le Normandie Restaurant certainly good but overrated.


20 July 2022


All of it. The pool. The room



16 July 2022


River restaurant

11 July 2022

We really enjoyed staying at the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok and it was totally resourceful!

The room was very confortable, clean and convenient. Well located and also quite. The pool is nice and the service was very efficient.

The temperature of the water of the pool was a bit too high for me. I had some difficulties with the lightening of the room and I found the shower a bit tight and not so nice located in front of the toilet. It was a bit disappointing not to get the bag as a gift, like in other hotels...
