Olly’s Hotel Review: The Mandarin Oriental Bangkok

View from our room on the 16th floor

The Mandarin Oriental of Bangkok has to be by far my favorite in City hotel. Starting off with the staff absolutely impeccable, they were super helpful at all times, especially the driver that took us to Ayutthaya, he turned out to be our guide throughout the ruins.

The Room of the hotel where great, we were made to chose also which kind of toiletries we wanted to have for our bathrooms, the choice included : Apreys, Acqua di Parma and   a more organic one. We were pampered from the beginning to end of our stay with beautiful fruit arrangements, various snacks and a delicious local tea.

This hotel really took me back to how hotels used to feel when I was traveling as a kid, Milly really appreciated all the effort involved and agrees with me that it was by far the best service seen in a while.

The Food at the hotel was absolutely superb and the breakfast was divine. Im really a big fan of big buffet breakfast and the Mandarin Oriental really had to offer everything one could have wanted. The Restaurant across the river was just divine.

Forgot to mention Milly was shown the room of one of her favorite authors Somerset Maugham, the room was beautiful and really captured the spirit of a passed time.

I strongly recommend staying here!

 

Style: A Classic

Hotel Philosophy: “For more than 135 years distinguished travelers have followed the legendary Chao Phraya River, through the heart of Bangkok, to the doors of one of the world’s most luxurious hotels, Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok. A paragon of contemporary luxury and rich in history, our hotel is filled with stories of the celebrated guests who have considered us home during their world travels”

Pros: Super Helpful Service, Fantastic food, Pretty pool, Romantic Restaurant, Impeccable amenities in-room, great view on the city

Cons: The staff in the boutiques were somewhat rude, and unhelpful when asked about items they were selling.
