Rated 5 out of 5 by shiftyzane Fancy chic decor and responsible nice staff
The facility and decoration are actually beyond my expectation. You can feel the warm of the staff at the time you step out of the taxi. All the time of the stay, and all the staff I met have shown a true and sincere attitude and are really helpful.
However several small flaws are still noticed. First of all the swimming pool is so small and seems out-of-date. Second, the slide door between bath room and living room is either difficult to close or difficult to totally open. Then the outer area of the floor in the shower room is easy to store water - maybe the angle of incline of the floor is not accurate enough. In addition, the towels, all types of them, appear to be too thin for a five-star hotel - maybe lack of the thick and fluffy feeling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SWCK Coming back to Le Meridien Bangkok was splendid!
You probably have one of the best front desk service agents at your hotel! They are lovely and simply helpful. They exceeded my expectation as a SPG Platinum member!

Rated 2 out of 5 by chuckLC Did not meet expectations
I was looking forward to staying at this hotel based on all the good reviews. I was totally disappointed.
The disappointment began at check-in. The person checking me in seemed preoccupied with something else. She did not recognize my crossover rewards with Delta, being a Delta Diamond member. I had to request an upgrade and she had to go to a supervisor to get approval. She said the room should be ready in a hour and a half. It took over 2 hours. There was limited seating in the lobby and the chairs were very uncomfortable. When I checked in I was offered a very small glass of yogurt which I declined. I was never asked if they could get me a drink during the wait. I had booked an Executive deluxe room.
The room did not have sufficient drawers, only had one small drawer in the closet. The room did not have a hotel book, but had numerous brochures lying about on different topics. The walls were white and bare, only one small picture in the bathroom,. Not all channels came in on the TV, such as DW on channel 6. There was lighting on only one side of the mirror above the sink, dark on the other side. The towels were thin and of poor quality. The soap dish in the shower was caked with soap, very noticeable as the walls were black. Poor water pressure in the shower.
At breakfast the first day no one cleared the dirty dishes from the table next to me or picked up the used dishes of mine. The next day someone did pickup a used dish from my table and addressed me by name, The tables are bare, no placemats and are wiped off with a wet cloth. The silverware is placed on the bare table. A pot of coffee is placed on the table, but by the time one wants a second cup it is cold. The breakfast itself was good.
The hotel does not have an executive lounge, but had happy hour in a bar. With drinks they were supposed to serve canapés. They place a tray before you of three small dishes. One had one shrimp in it, another had one small unknown piece of meat, the third was a small pastry. That was the extent of the canapés. They did ask you if one would like some nuts. Being a bar, the music was a little loud and not very relaxing.
When I checked out I had to wait over five minutes before someone approached me. They showed me the bill and said the total was due. This was a shock as I had prepaid months ago. I was charged for two pieces of laundry, it was my mistake in not reading the fine print. The hotel only offered two pieces of pressing for an Executive room, not laundry.
There are so many other really good hotels in Bangkok that offer so much more, such as two pieces of free laundry per day, for the same price as the Le Meridian. Look elsewhere.

Came here last week for 3 days liked it so much came back for 6 more days. just a very fun place to be everything handy. And I don't know how to put it but it feels like to me Bangkok. The staff here are amazing always on high and helpful. Oh most important the air conditioning in the room is great and here you really need it. Fun place to stay night market is here where you can buy all your high end items cheap ha ha.
I would give this hotel a 5 stars but i cant because my 2 favorite hotels anywhere are here in Bangkok but i still like to stay here for fun and get a taste of what Bangkok should feel like.
Oh yes the spa here is great as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dexterburke1 Nothng for this Hotel is A problem. Staff are amazing.
From the moment you arrive at the hotel and the front doors are opened you are welcomed by very friendly helpful staff. The reception staff are helpful friendly and efficient and if you have any questions or queries about Bangkok they are only to pleased to help you. The room was immaculate and the views are fantastic. My only wish is that I could be back again now. But hopefully it will not belong before I a can have a break here again. This is definitely a hotel to be recommended.

- Nice rooms and suites.
- Good reception staff.
- Very good buffets and good service.
- Excellent bar and bartenders.
I hope the word does not go around too much.
Downside: the location.
The music ("world") used to be excellent and added to the sophistication of the hotel. It was recently changed to old hits (Sheraton type of music).
