Stayed at The Peninsula Hotel for 3 nights - We requested an early check in our booking as we flew in to Bangkok very early. On arrival we were greeted at the door and taken straight to our rooms, no checking in or filling out forms until later. The rooms were large and we opted for an inter-connecting corner room for families where the hallway is closed off by a main door. The room was on the 31st floor with sweeping views over the river and Bangkok.
The hotel is very professional with ATD - nothing is overlooked. We felt the restaurants were good with a good location on the river. Mosquitoes were a problem but nothing a good repellant couldn't deal with. We went on the hotel river cruise for sun downers which was fun and had a couple of great excursions with a lovely guide all arranged meticulously by the concierge - we went over the Songkran festival which is a must with slightly older or teenage children, it is just one big water fight ! all done in good spirit. Albeit be aware that thousands of people attend the festival on Silom Road and you will be drenched from head-to-toe and covered in white powder - not advised with very small children.
Stayed in many 5 star city hotels but this one ranks highly in our estimation. Only flaw was at breakfast, we felt the buffet was over crowded and other guests a bit grabby and pushy but that is a small price to pay, we had room service after that.
If you are planning a stay in Bangkok, this one is hard to beat.
