I never get tired of coming here.The location,service are the best in Bangkok.They think of every detail to make you happy.The only complaint is that the historical Authors Lounge is often booked for local functions so Guests don't get much a chance to use it.

The Oriental, the original part name-sake of the Mandarin Oriental chain of hotels, is a beautiful facility and has an iconic location on the Chao Praya river. We stayed in the "older" but newly renovated Author's Wing which has wonderfully restored bi-level suites in a colonial fashion. The hotel certainly lived up to its legacy with the natural beauty and...

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
