Shangrila Hotel Bangkok: "Great Hotel in Bangkok" Thailand Hotel Tip by FredNYC

Thailand Hotels: 584 reviews and 535 photos


I got a $60 a night deal in this five-star property on the river in Bangkok. It is a truely beautiful hotel with a staff that should put any hotel in the UAS or Europe to shame. The breakfast buffet is sublime and unlike anything I have ever seen. They have all versions of Asian, European and American breakfasts available and wonderfully prepared.

The poolside facing the river is lovely, and the poolboys never let you get too much sun or get to hot. They bring around ice water and cool towels as well as any other sort of beverage or food you might require. You barely have to move to get their attention.

Unique Qualities: Great location by the river and the SkyTrain station.
Incredibly comfortable rooms.
The best staff.

Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Every cab driver in the many, many taxis in Bangkok know how to get there.
Price: US$40-80
Theme: Hotel

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
