The venerable Peninsula Bangkok sits on the quiet western bank of the Chao Phraya River. The hotel's position as a true getaway from the chaos of Bangkok streets is cemented by the very exclusive penthouse Peninsula Suite, complete with helipad. But all guests avail themselves of the free river shuttle, luxurious spa and delicious dining venues that make the Peninsula Bangkok such a peaceful escape.


The on-site restaurants at the Peninsula Bangkok include Mei Jiang, serving authentic Cantonese cuisine, and the alfresco Thipthara for traditional Thai in a romantic riverside setting. A café and two bars round out the dining and drinking offerings.


Designed in a wave shape so every room has a panoramic view of river and city, the Peninsula Bangkok takes good advantage of its riverfront environs. All rooms are decorated in a classic style with elegant furniture and marble bathrooms. Modern perks include iPod docks and remote controls for lights and curtains. Complimentary wired and wireless Internet access, daily fruit plate and newspaper come standard. Some rooms have small balconies, while larger suites have Jacuzzis and private terraces. Sought-after Thai Suites are particularly gorgeous, resplendent in Thai art and furnishings.

Shipped from the ancient Thai capital of Ayutthaya, the steep-roofed open-sided salas were reassembled as the riverside Thai restaurant, Thiptara. Set on teak decking around a banyan tree, each holds just two tables, ensuring intimate dining by candlelight, or sit at open river bank tables for a sublime view. Forget you're in the middle of Bangkok, and discover why so many guests rate this the city's best for home-style Thai cooking.
River Cafe and Terrace
Close your eyes and let your senses define the experience of dining al fresco on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, with the long tail boats zipping past. Choose between international dinner buffets or all-day la carte meals in cool air-conditioned relaxed comfort, or sit outside and enjoy the night skyline by candlelight. Start with drinks at the open air River Bar and allow yourself to be beguiled by Bangkok.
The lobby serves a wide selection of light meals and the traditional Peninsula afternoon tea, accompanied by live classical music.
The Pool Bar
Ideal for relaxing and unwinding.
Mei Jiang
Cantonese food lovers will be charmed by Mei Jiang's interior, with light streaming through long latticed windows opening onto an ornamental pool, reflecting the Chinese and Thai affinity with water. Expect the best from the culinary team who specialise in dim sum and abalone dishes. Five lavishly and richly decorated private dining rooms can be converted into one for larger gatherings.

Fab end in Style

Would recommend Thu, Dec 10, 2015
We booked the Peninsula for 1 night only at the end of a two week holiday. It was a fabulous end to a very enjoyable holiday and gave us a real special experience. The location is great with its own shuttle to the River Taxi Piers as well as the Sky Train so getting out and about is really easy. Its great to return to the tranquillity of the pool and bars after the hustle and bustle of the city. The staff were extremely attentive and any requests were met very quickly.

Great staff, smelly room

Would not recommend Thu, Apr 24, 2014
The hotel staff was very hospitable, but we were disappointed in our room. The entire floor, as well as our room, had a musty odor. In addition, the mattress was not comfortable and the sheets were very rough. Not what we execpected from The Peninsula.

Great value

Would recommend Wed, Feb 8, 2012
The Peninsula in Bangkok is everything you'd expect from a hotel of this category: rooms are well-appointed, service impeccable, location unbeatable. We've stayed here twice in the past six weeks, and both times it was consistently good. At half the price what you'd pay at the Mandarin Oriental just across the river for very similar quality and service, the Peninsula offers great value. If the Peninsula management are reading this, there are only three areas where I find room for improvement: 1) Food (especially a-la-carte) is sub-standard. The morning buffet is lovely. But it all goes downhill from there. I've been disappointed at the Thai restaurant, the riverside terrace and pool-side snacks. 2) The boat service to River City is extremely annoying. Customers' needs - not a fixed schedule - should drive it. And customers should not have to "book" it on top of that. The Oriental's boat service to RC is available at any time upon request. Peninsula's should be the same. 3) Between our first stay in mid-December and early February, pool-side service declined noticeably. While the number of guests by the pool increased substantially, there were fewer staff to take care of them. Service was erratic at best. Other than these three specific issues, everything else at Peninsula was flawless.


Dining at Peninsula is poor. Hop across the river to the Oriental for the best dining in town.

A quite retreat in Bangkok

Would recommend Sun, Jul 5, 2009
We stayed at the Peninsula in Bangkok for one night in the Grande Deluxe w/ Balcony room. Service at this hotel is impeccable. Can't say enough good things about the staff. The facilities are very grand including the rooms but the technology in the rooms (TVs, thermostats, etc.) is a bit dated. The lack of an iron in the room was a bit odd though they delivered one expeditiously (with a tip). The hotel was a quiet and safe haven in an otherwise noisy and chaotic city.
