Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok

Prices & Booking

Introduction

The Shangrila is a beautifully presented luxury hotel that fully deserves its 5 stars. In any other city it would be regarded as outstanding, but in Bangkok the competition from such stunning examples of Asian architecture as the Oriental and Sukhothai hotels means that the Shangrila is not the best choice in town. While it is extremely comfortable and tastefull, it lacks the wow factor of the other two hotels.

The Shangrila's large pool is surrounded by sufficient loungers, which are of a 5 star quality. The riverside 'Next To' terrace cafe where guests take breakfast is an atmospheric place in which to enjoy watching the hustle and bustle of the non-stop river traffic passing by.

This Bang Rak zone hotel has four restaurants serving international, Italian, Thai and Chinese cuisine.

Accommodation

Deluxe 36 sqm

These city view rooms are not recommended, as the Deluxe River View rooms are not much more expensive.

Deluxe River View 36 sqm

These rooms are comfortably furnished, tastefully decorated and well equipped with a flatscreen TV and bathtub. They are and feel rather small compared to other similarly-priced Bangkok rooms.

Family Room

These is only room for one extra bed in these units, making them a choice not to be recommended for families of 4 or more. For families of 3 or even of 33, better options exist in Bangkok, notably at the Fraser Suites, Amari Watergate and Vie hotels.

Executive Room

These high floor rooms do not get a city view and, like the Deluxe rooms, feel too small.

Executive River View

These are the best choice in this hotel, and the only room type that is recommended. They get good river views and, while they aren't great value for money, they offer a quality place to stay when other better-value places are full.

Deluxe Balcony

The traveller is not recommended to book one of these rooms. The small balconies are noisy and uncomfortable places, and not worth paying for, except for smokers who need particularly frequent nicotine fixes.

Prices

 

The above rates are net per room per night and inclusive of service charge and breakfast for 2 people.
