Rated 5 out of 5 by itk1858 Beautiful hotel with plenty of amenities
Unfortunately we were here for only one night but would have liked to enjoy it longer. As a Platinum member with SPG, we were upgraded to one of the beautiful circular suites. The room was fantastic as were the cocktails at the "creative hour". The options for breakfast were limitless. The staff was very welcoming and friendly - this will definitely be my first choice in hotels should we return to Bangkok.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Javio81 A lot to improve
Many things to improve in this hotel. first of all the service.
It was our honeymoon and they had no detail for our stay. We know it is not compulsory but for us, as a difference with the rest of our honeymoon, was a disappointment. They had the option to make us feel special in our honeymoon and they didn´t. we had an important room (not a common one) and the service and attitude has a lot to improve...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Calify Wonderful and enjoyable stay!
This Le Meridien is an outstanding find in the heart of Bangkok. Conveniently located, the property and its amenities are second to none! The staff is absolutely amazing and extremely hospitable. They were helpful in ensuring the SPG Platinum benefits are provided and explained. Our room was beautiful and extremely spacious. We truly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate staying at the property again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rainbow Superb hotel in an 'interesting' part of Bangkok
This hotel is located near the Pathong market and is in one of the red-light districts in Bangkok. Despite this or rather in spite of this, the hotel is not seedy and exudes an aura of luxury and professionalism, coupled with some aspects of quirkyness which makes this hotel stay unusual and delightful. Examples are the poems left on your bed, and the funky piped music. The buffet is absolutely superb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SkywalkerTom Feeling like a second home
As a frequent guest of the hotel, I am very pleased with the attention provided to me by everyone from the bellboys to the front desk to the room service staff. They have been extremely helpful to me and my fellow colleagues. There may be instances of what I call 'service hiccups' but they are quickly rectified. I look forward to many more stays at the hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SuperSid Beatiful Hotel but declining SPG Plat recognition
Stayed second time, with long request for an upgrade on honeymoon - nope.
Concierge female gave recommendation (insisted) for "local" Thai restaurant 1 block away behind the Hotel - don't go, really don't go. High prices, decent quality food, small portions, not local food, and service wait times for the food, water, bill, each took 30 minutes, EACH.
Check in took 20 minutes, even though there was NO one else at the counter, I was a returning guest, and had all documents out in 30 seconds.
BREAKFAST is one of the BEST in Thailand, having stayed at almost ALL the top Starwood hotels in Bangkok.
Management's responses always sound nice and so promising, but unfortunately they are not practical, useful, or carried out. Leaves guests with nothing but wishes. Without proper incentive / value prop, as a Platinum guest, I cannot recommend this particular hotel to friends or will come back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris78 Good stay and Great SPG Dining Promotion
Arrived at the hotel at 8am.
As a last minute trip I booked in the hotel foyer and proceeded to front desk.
Although there was no suite upgrade they were kind to let me check in early and gave me a corner room.
What was great however was the SPG dining promotion. The hotel has a 30% discount for any SPG member on food at their restaurant. Staff were great in attending to this and made it seamless !

Rated 4 out of 5 by timtx One night in Bangkok
On checking in early there were no rooms availble, except for a suite so I trebled the cost of my stay. it being one night this was very excessive, unnecessary but the reception did a great job of hustling me in to the upgrade :) The Birthday Cake was an unexpected and welcome touch. Only disatisfacion is that Restuarant could have had more selection of western dishes - i know i am a picky eater

What a difference one month makes !!
We had a great stay last month in the hotel ( check my review ) and loved it.
This time, the beds were too soft ( room 911 ) and had a backache the following morning.
The concierge service was poor, especially when we were asking for help with the wifi.
Front office and receptionists were still excellent.
Wished the overall hotel service was more consistent.

What can I say that the other reviewers have not already said? This hotel is superb. Secondly, given it is in a prime location to Patpong market, Sala Deong BTS and the MTR, there is a no better place to stay. Though it is in the thick of all the hectic manner of Bangkok, this is truly an oasis where you can relax and know that the staff will take care of you.
And they did! Reservations for dinner, massages, cars, tours, luggage storage; the staff TRULY MAKE THIS HOTEL A GEM!
And the breakfast......multiple food stations overlooked by an award winning chef with (gasp!) GREAT tea and coffee! Not the stagnant stuff that has been in a flask for over an hour, I am talking something good and fresh to welcome you in the morning.
I am an SPG Platinum member and this stays was fully recognised. I hope the Manager of this hotel keeps up the great work (and rewards the staff for all their hard work!!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by jaemisuh 5 Star Hotel All Around
The Le Meridien Bangkok was a nice fresh of air amongst the chaotic busy streets of Bangkok. The location is centrally located in Bangkok, close to restaurants and street vendors. The BTS (subway station) is about a 10 minute walk from this hotel, which is very convenient. The staff is professional and eager to please. They all can speak English very well and can answer any questions you may have. One downfall of this hotel is that there is no free internet in your room. There is free internet in the lobby though.
We were there for two nights and received a one king size room. The room had a nice decor, along with a fresh modern look.
I had breakfast here and the breakfast was delicious. They have an all you can eat style breakfast that has a quite of bit of selection. It is a little expensive for Thailand prices.
I did not check out the pool or the fitness center but did stop by to take a look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yusuke Nice friendly stuff and perfect location
Especially for SongKran season, this hotel is just perfect for everything.
Nice and friendly staffs are always give us the bath towels at entrance since we do really wet after water play. and it just 5 mins to main water playing area from hotel on foot. NO TAXI, NO BTS, NO Tuk Tuk, it is very important for Songkran season.
And 24H gym is surely big plus!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ABCD81 Nice hotel with great suites
Brand new hotel with really nice suites. The only thing that should be worked on is the check-in process. We arrived at 4:00 pm and were told that the room is not ready until 6:00 pm. Really? Took some discussions to finally get a room where we could hang out until our suite was ready. Besides that mishap, our stay was pleasant and we enjoyed staying at the Le Meridien Bangkok.

This was my second stay at this hotel and every bit as good as the first . It is very well located, stylish with fabulous staff. Nothing is too much trouble. They remember you and your preferences. The food and beverage services are wonderful, particularly the breakfast buffet. The service at " latest recipe" is exceptional. This is the only place I will stay in Bangkok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary67 The staff at this hotel are outstanding.
My stay was brief, but I was made very welcome. I had to stay until the afternoon to go to the airport. Whilst I could not get a late check-out, the staff explained the facilities available to me. I had an excellent lunch with friends in the restaurant. The rooms are very comfortable and affordable. The location is excellent. I shall return when next in Bangkok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VTlim Excellent hotel with helpful staff
My stay in Le Meridien was excellent. We would like to highlight an outstanding member of your staff that was very helpful and made our stay in Bangkok memorable. Ms.Chutirat of your front desk is highly commendable.
Our only dissatisfaction was that we were not offered the breakfast set and instead was offered the complimentary dinner set when we checked in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A449 One of my favourite hotels anywhere
This is a contemporary hotel, and yet it is small enough to feel boutique. This is mostly down to the great team of people there, who are both exceptionally welcoming and clearly well trained!
It is in one of the three main tourist locations in Bangkok, right by Patpong night market and more bars than you will ever need. But this is also the main business district, so shops and good place to eat are also close by.
Access to the Skytrain and Subway is ok, although they are both a few minutes walk away, and you will need to cross a busy road to get there.
In fact, the main road outside the hotel is probably the only thing I'd change about the Le Meriden Bangkok.
I've been coming to this hotel almost since it opened. There are plenty of other excellent Starwood properties in Bangkok, so there is not shortage of choice. But I always enjoy staying at the Le Meriden Bangkok - it is everything that I want a Le Meridien hotel to be!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sperry8 Fantastic hotel - but location is not the best
I have stayed at this hotel multiple times. I like it a lot, however as a personal preference I don't find the location to be the best. Its right across the Patpong night market, which can be good or bad depending on what you are looking for when in Bangkok. I also don't find the food outside the hotel to be plentiful or yummy. There is a BTS Skytrain a few blocks away though - so you can escape the area if you'd like.
As for the hotel, it is excellent. The lobby is beautiful and the pool is cool. The breakfast buffet is excellent and filled with choice. The service is good, but not excellent.
One negative. The taxis the hotel get for you always say their meter is broken about 2-3 blocks away from the hotel. I've stayed in other Starwood properties that make sure this doesn't happen. But Le Meridien doesn't seem to fix this issue - even though I complained about a taxi to them. I saw the guy an hour later picking up another customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarvinMa Everything is fine except basic process...
Everything is fine here. The warm greetings and welcoming smile on staff, the facilities, the clean environment, and etc...
Only one thing needs to be improved is receptionists' training on basic things. I checked in on April 11 staying for 4 days and a lady receptionist provided the check-in service to me. As a Gold member reserved the room via official website, there should be some benefits for me to selected from such as free internet or 250 starpoints....
This lady (sorry I can't remember her name) just wanted to sell the starpoint upgrade options to me but not ask me to select from the member offerings... Only when I mentioned if I can choose the member benefits, she figured out that SPG has this offerings.
I must say her attitude and smiles were very nice, but profession goes before the warm feeling. The staff training on basic processes need to be improved and the rest are already at the highest level.
Yes, I will come back again and hope the basics can be picked up soon.

the Le Meridian is located on Suriwongse Road, which is very convenient for shopping, business and having fun, not mention great access from the tollway. The hotel is recently built (in the past few years) and everything is immaculate. The room comfort is superb, great pool and fitness centre and has everything you could want from a 5 star hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mkakhor Pleasant stay
Nice, clean room, easy check-in, friendly staff. One problem is the smart card for the lift and door. Not very sensitive. Need to tap the card a couple of times, or hold the card to the detector for a couple of seconds before the signal is registered. Nice restaurant, friendly staff, good array of food. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lexington8 Great service and facilities
Staff was extremely professional and courteous. The only thing that bothered me was that breakfast was not included even though almost all Asian hotels include breakfast. The room was very comfortable, modern, and we always had everything we needed. It's right next to Patpong night market so tons of street shopping and debauchery.
