Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok in Bangkok, Thailand
If the Chao Phraya River is Bangkok's lifeblood, the Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok is its pulse. Located directly on the banks of the "River of Kings," and set in a landscape of lush tropical gardens, this graceful and exotic property offers convenient access to the central business and shopping hubs and a superb range of recreation and leisure facilities. Consistently voted as one of the best hotels in the world, this deluxe five-star property is a preferred destination for both leisure and business travelers.
Start your Thai explorations with a tour in a long-tail boat of the river and canals, whose stops include the impressive Temple of Dawn and the Royal Barge Museum. In the heart of the city, the Grand Palace houses the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the most sacred image in the Kingdom. Be sure and see the Jim Thompson Museum, the former home of the legendary American who helped revive the silk industry in Thailand then mysteriously disappeared. A day spent at the National Museum yields a stunning collection of Thai art, which includes ancient Buddha images, furniture, paintings, puppets and musical instruments.

Reviews for Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok
This is one of the classic riverside luxury hotels in Bangkok. We stayed in Krungthep wing, which I agree is probably better choice than Shangri-La wing. It is more secluded, quieter corner of this huge hotel. The Shangri-La wing fills with large tour groups, mostly Chinese. You may feel loud and crowded from time to time, especially during breakfast time. On the other hand, Krungthep wing provides services exclusively for the guests in this wing. We have a balcony room on the top floor. It has a magnificent view of the river and Taksin bridge. The room has multiple switches, and dimmers. The blinds are electric controlled. We even had chandelier in the room. The bed is very comfortable. The house cleaning replaces bottle water and fresh fruits daily. The bathroom is the "rusted corner" of the entire hotel. It is aged and really needs update. I saw chipped paint and cracked counter top. The water faucets are very old style, can't remember the last time I saw this style. However, the toiletry is made by L'Occitane, smells very good. For prospective guests, I would suggest paying a little more to book a room with breakfast deal. As a guest, you then can enjoy breakfast at Next2 restaurant, or Krungthep lounge (exclusive for Krungthep guests). It's an international buffet with excellent food and huge variety. You can also enjoy afternoon tea with a fruits and sandwich buffet. The Chi spa is rated very high. I had a 90 minute session there. Excellent service, but, quite expensive, in Thai standard. I can get very decent service and same level of massage with half price for two hour session at Health Land, a popular local spa chain, easily access by Skytrain from Shangri-La.
The Shangri-La Hotel in Bangkok never disappoints and I consider it my home away from home in this fantastic city. I travel to Bangkok regularly and have stayed in many of the 5 star hotels but the Shangri-La is clearly my favorite and simply does it better than the others all the way around. The river view rooms offer 24 hour entertainment with magical views of the Chaopraya River and the Horizon club Floor is fantastic. Service is 5 star plus and all of the restaurants and bars are superb.Breakfast buffet is the best of any hotel,anywhere,bar none.Pool areas are great and poolside services are great.Hotel has a great chilled out spa with complimentary steam,sauna and a fantastic jacuzzi soaking tub as well as an excellent fitness center Within walking distance to the best of restaurants ,shopping,sky train. Recommend a balcony room with river view or a suite. Shangri-La never disappoints and there is very good reason why they have so many guests who keep returning repeatedly . I simply adore this hotel and their product and in my opinion ,the staff is the best trained and most hospitable in the business. Highly recommended!

This my favourite hotel in the world...and the setting for the novel â€śThe Scent of Daisiesâ€ť by PTG Man. If you get a balcony room over the river (mine was room 1816) it is like you are one with the river life. Salathip restaurant has magnificent Thai cuisine and again a perfect setting on the river, with traditional live Thai music and dancing. The Horizon club shares the spectacular river view, has a 2 hr happy hour from 5-7pm with complimentary wine and great food (you could skip dinner easily), and usually allows a late check out to match your flight. But the highlight, of course, is the staff. I have been here countless times, and unless you have a very short layover, I really donâ€™t understand why anyone would stay anywhere else. Finally, I met a man in the club who said he was here 20 years ago as a child, and has since fantasised living here for life. YES IT IS THAT GOOD!!

My husband and I stayed here during our visit to Bangkok. We paid extra for a view of the river. Totally worth it! Hotel was beautiful, clean, and in a great location. It was easily accessible to the river boats and train.

We stayed five nights in a Krungthep Deluxe Suite. The suite was extremely well appointed and large. The suite had great views down the river and it was very nice to sit and watch the night traffic pass by. All of the staff were fantastic, especially in the riverside lounge with Tim, Oui, Aum, Nook and Bas (and the other staff also) for looking after us exceptionally well. Thank you to them for making our stay very special. The hotel is a few minutes walk to the BTS train and the main ferry stop. There is also a supermarket close by and nice market selling food, clothes and other nick-nacks. Would certainly stay here again.
