Truly a 5star!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 27, 2011

Intercontinental Hotel Bangkok is a 5 star modern hotel right in the center of Central Business District. Directly adjacent to sky train station provides fast travel throughout Bangkok. Going around the city touring and visiting attraction is very tiring however you will feel refreshed once you step in the lobby by its glamour and elegance! You feel like you are King or a Queen LOL.

I will definitely go back and stay at this hotel again.

Unique Quality: Something new to me. Check In is right inside your room! Whatta nice experience (not the usual on at the front desk)

Rooms are very elegant.

Request for a higher floor for a nicer view. I stayed at the 35th floor of the hotel with easy access to rooftop swimming pool

Directions: Located in the Business District of Bangkok

The stay was very nice and luxurious. Rooms were immaculate with a resturant and shops all in the hotel building itself. Things were quiet and the view was spectacular. If you have the money to blow this is a great hotel. Though on my return will be looking for something a little less pricey.

Unique Quality: Great view of the city, nice comfortable bed, very friendly and helpful staff. They have some shops connected to the hotel in the same building with some really nice things to look for. Bought some clothing while I was there at very reasonable prices.

This is another great Bangkok hotel, just one small step down from the echelon of the Mandarin Oriental and the Peninsula. When compared with North American or European 5-star hotels, this would really be a 6-star. Rooms were large, modern and clean; and the staff just excellent.

Directions: Just a few blocks from MBK

This is a great hotel with a wonderful location situated at Chidlom skytrain station. Great shopping with Gaysorn Plaza next door, Central Chidlom down the road and Siam Paragon a station away.

Rooms are comfy and the most interesting thing is their Pillow Menu where you can choose from a range of super soft to very hard pillows to suit your needs. I've been having fun trying them in turn :-)

Have not tried their spa yet which is as usual pricey as per hotel prices.

Breakfast buffets here are great with a variety of fresh juices and yummy international fare.

Gym is pretty nice high up on the 36th floor with great views of the city.

Unique Quality: Great central location
Big comfy rooms
Wonderful views from the top

I was extremely content with my stay in InterContinental Bangkok.

The staff were EXTREMELY friendly and helpful, even in the most special requests (I needed to get baloons for a birthday, for instance). The concierge would be happy to organise anything for you.

The quality of the breakfast brunch as well as the restauration in the hotel in general is simply OUTSTANDING!!! The prices, by European levels are maybe even a little below average!

The rooms are very spacious, good (but expensive) internet connection, stylish and comfortable bathrooms.

I had no problems during my 8 day stay that weren't instantly fixed by the hotel staff.

Unique Quality: The fitness centre and the pool are outstanding!

The 37th floor rooftop swimming pool, even though somewhat small, offers a quiet, sunny location away from the chaos down below. The bar makes decent cocktails and the view improves the situation even further!

My mother claims that the local SPA/Beauty centre in the hotel, even though expensive, is absolutely outstanding. She knows what she's talking about.

This is one excellent hotel that deserves a perfect 10. The atmosphere is very classy yet warm and inviting. The lobby is huge and opulent in split-level partitions - with the Balcony Lounge occupying the space beside the front desk and the deli on the lower ground floor providing an alternative entrance/exit to the hotel on top of the main access coming from the large courtyard it shares with Holiday Inn Bangkok. The personnel are superbly-trained in hospitality service and have adequate-to-fluent command of the English language.

Unique Quality: The rooms are spacious - measuring 45 sq.m. with lots of space to move around. Everything is provided for - complete set of toiletries (Audley's from London), slippers, bathrobes, tv and dvd player, mineral water, coffee/tea-making facilities, a daily supply of a big bowl of fruits plus assorted chocolates and pretzels. Daily morning paper is complimentary from M-S and even includes an additional International Daily Tribune from M-F. Nightly turndown service is also standard among all guests.

The hotel has a luxurious spa, 24-hour fitness center, nicely-sized pool plus the Club Lounge on the top floors. To top it all, the location is just super! It is right beside Gaysorn Plaza, across Amarin Shopping and Erawan Arcade, with Central Chitlom a mere 3-minute walk to the left, and the Big C plus Central World Plaza (presently undergoing major renovation) right around the corner in just 5 minutes. The skytrain escalator is right outside the lobby and the skywalk going to Siam Central Terminal is a definite plus.

All told, I cannot fault the Intercontinental Bangkok for anything amiss during my stay because each day met - and often exceeded - my expectations. The high price was all worth it.

Directions: Beside Gaysorn Plaza and almost at the intersection of Rajadamri and Ploenchit Rds.

Asian location

As a deluxe hotel all the services work perfectly, the personnel is super efficient, but the best thing is the localization, in the center of the departament stores near the pratunam market (15 minutes walking), at night in the surroundings of the hotel is a very lively street market. The hotels that are near the river at night the surroundings are dead and holes. There is a station of sky train in the same door of the hotel, you can cross the city in 15 minutes with this train. The luxury of the hotel is elegant it is not of the type of Las Vegas (new rich). The breakfasts are incredible, to request a room in a high plant, the views are magnify. The area is denominated Erawan

Unique Quality: The rooms are roomy with 45 square meters and all kinds of services, fruits, newspapers, sweet at nights, bathrobe, slippers, safe-deposit box, etc. The pool is in the high floor with a bar inside , a service of transport in limousine to the airport 1800bth until 7 people, service internet high speed,large work desk, elegant classic decoration, twice bed service at day., free mineral water (the water is safe).

Directions: Erawan zone

Our stay was great! We had a wonderful, easy check-in and a complimentary drink in the Balcony Bar before going up to our room.

The hotel is nicely appointed and set-out with great shopping in the hotel arcade. The staff are impeccable, in fact, I think they were about as good as you can get.

We stayed in a Club InterContinental room which entitled us to use the Club InterContinental Lounge. The lounge has a happy hour from 5.30 - 7.30pm when drinks are free. There is a light buffet available for free or for 500 baht if you are an upgrade customer.

The hotel is very well located in the centre of the shopping and commercial areas, the skytrain stops a block away from the hotel.

Highly recommended for reasonably priced, good quality accommodation.

Unique Quality: The cleanest bathrooms I've seen in an Asian hotel. Not a speck of mould on the grout to be found - or smelled.

I would have to say once again, that the staff are unique. The feeling in this hotel is very good.

It also has a lowest internet rate guarantee.

Best of the best!!

All of the hotel's stylish rooms command incredible views of the cityscape,
and the interior decoration exudes a carefully crafted tone of understated contemporary elegance

Unique Quality: The hotel is offering personalized international understanding delivered with the essence of Thai Hospitality

Very pleasant. Nice, comfortable, tastefully decorated rooms. Good service. Look at the Intercon website, they offer competitive rates.

Skip the restaurants in the attached mall, they were disappointing.

Unique Quality: Excellent location. Right at the BTS Chitlom stop. Beside Gaysorn. Great foot massage place in the mall right across Ploenchit (same level as elevated walkway)

It used to be Le Royal Meridien Hotel and the views from the top is amazing. In the morning, I like to see the landscape of the city by the swimming pool at the top of the roof (38th floor).

Directions: BTS station Ploen Chit, 2 stop before Nana station, in the opposite of WTC and nearby The President Hotel

The lost garden

by written on March 25, 2003

This is not a tip. There´s no Interncontinental Hotel any more. Huge gardens, ancient trees and a lot of room to breathe - it was too good to last.

There´s now a construction work going on. A new Intercontinental Hotel and a huge shopping mall will be there soon. I guess there´s no room for garden anymore.

Directions: Near Siam Skytrain station
