The Peninsula Hotel is a great hotel in a super location that is elegant, user friendly and very safe. The staff is great and morning breakfast is a fantastic way to start the day after one night in Bangkok. Don't miss the weekend market, the floating market and especially the Tiger Temple.
This is a lovely hotel to stay in. The staff were very attentive especially to my 16 month old grandson. We stayed in The Executive rooms which gave us access to extra amenities such as breakfast, afternoon tea, cocktails, canapés etc. etc.
I found the chairs and lounges in the Executive area not very comfortable particularly in relation to the tables. They seem too low.
It was a little disappointing to discover that the shuttle boat no longer goes across the river to River City however the public ferry is only a short walk away and inexpensive. The shuttle boat now goes to Asiatic markets which is a bonus.
This hotel is on a busy street but is so quiet inside you wouldn't know it. The hotel is only a couple of blocks from the BTS and from there you can go almost anywhere in Bangkok. The neighbour hood is very Thai, but you have new friends instantly. You also can shop and eat where the Thai people shop and eat. This is a very family oriented hotel and it is low cost without low quality. We look forward to going back again and again.
