    • The rooms of the Shangri-La are spacious and comfortable. The interior decoration mixes brown, burgundy and beige, which give much elegance to the place. The furniture is made of wood and is comfortably installed on a thick fitted carpet. The very large window lets in the daylight and offers a beautiful view of the river and the town, according to its location. There is: TV, air confitioning, minibar filled with tea and coffee kit, direct international line, hairdryer and 24 hour room service. The bathroom is a combination of marble and wood. It has a grand bathtub as well as welcome products.
    • The Shangri-La has two wings. Each has been decorated by a different designer. "The most ancient one, the Shangri-la Wing, has been decorated by Leese Robertson Freeman Design Ltd.; the second one, the Krungthep Wing, by Graham Design Ltd. The latter was built in August 1991. There are no less than 799 rooms! The Shangri-La Wing has 628 rooms and 42 suites. The Krungthep Wing has 119 rooms and 10 suites. It is not quite negligible! Getting lost there might be common place... You will already find yourself a bit lost when entering the lobby. The entrance hall is simply huge, but actually proportional to the number of guests. A small monument with the head of the king is installed in the centre of the hall. The hotel has a round-shaped swimming pool installed just above the river. Beach chairs and beach umbrellas are available there. The hotel's spa, Chi The Spa, opened in July 2004 in the Krungthep Wing tower. You have to walk a bit to get there... There are 9 care rooms called suites, 4 of which are for couples. The interior architect is Julian Coombs and Associates.
    • The hotel has five restaurants serving different and varied cuisines. The Angelini is an Italian restaurant with 250 seats which is open for lunch and dinner and has an elegant and intimist setting. The Shang Palace takes care of the Chinese cuisine. It is difficult not to notice it when entering, as a huge and hearty Chinese Buddha reigns in the middle of the room. The restaurant is open at noon and in the evening. The Edogin offers Japanese cuisine in a convivial setting. In addition, one of the tables allows to see the chefs working in front of you, both at lunch and dinner. The Salathip is definitely the most charming restaurant. There you can taste traditional Thai cuisine. The place is built in a typically Thai pavilion, not far from the river. An orchestra accompanies your dinner. Finally, the Next2 Cafe and Terrace is the main restaurant of the hotel. It operates as a buffet. The place is open around the clock.
    • If you have children, note that the hotel offers organised activities to entertain them. If you would like to go on cruise on the Chao Phraya river, the establishment has its own fleet which can, for example, accomodate its guests for dinner or for the whole day (a surcharge is requested).

      Built around 12 years ago, the Grand Mercure Park Avenue Bangkok is ideal to simply have a stop-over in Bangkok. It is not convenient for a long stay. Although the hotel is comfortable, it lacks style.

      Open since October 2003, the Metropolitan of Bangkok is worth its name. Its contemporary and aesthetic decoration engender a stylised environment. The feeling comes immediately from the tiled entrance doors. This trendy design corresponds to young and dynamic clients, often couples.

      The InterContinental Bangkok is a huge town hotel. Situated just opposite the Holiday Inn of Bangkok, this establishment does not show the same modernity as its neighbour building.
