“5 Star Boutique Hotel in shopping district. Close to Skytrain station.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

My partner and I recently stayed at the Hansar Bangkok Hotel for a 4 day romantic get away. It was my third stay at the Hansar in the past 14 months and so, needless to say, they are doing something right in my eyes.

I recommend this hotel.

Location: The Hansar is located near Siam Square. The area is filled with high end, luxury shopping (Siam Paragon, Central World, Gayshorn) as well as cheaper options (Siam Square, MBK). The main malls are about a 10-minute walk from the hotel (you can also take the Skytrain 1 station). Ewaran Shrine is also a short walk. The area is also full of luxury hotels including the Four Seasons and St. Regis, which are both within one block of the Hansar.

Transportation: The Ratchadamri BTS (Skytrain) station is 100 metres from the hotel. The BTS connects to the MRT (subway) system as well and so you have easy access to the Bangkok metro system. Taxis in Bangkok are also generally metered and cheap. See the tips section for getting to the hotel from the airport.

Room: I have always stayed in the “Urban Suite”. Spacious, neutrally decorated suites with a living room & workstation separated from the bedroom by a sliding door. The bathroom is large and really nicely appointed with a large bathtub and rainfall style shower. The sliding doors for the both the bathroom and living area are nearly soundproof and nicely close off the bedroom. The styling is modern and conservative. The suite has a nice little glass enclosed “garden area” near the entrance, which is an original touch. Free wi-fi of course (and they have ridded themselves of the annoying password system they used in the past).

Views – Other tall buildings surround the hotel and so there is no particular view. However, you also won’t feel closed in.

Check In: Check in is on the second floor. Although there are only 2 people on duty at any given time, the Hansar is a boutique hotel and so it is unlikely to ever be queued up. In my case, I have never even managed to finish my welcome drink before being shown to my room. Check out was similarly easy. The front desk was also helpful in printing out some documents for me upon request.

Concierge: The concierge always has 2-3 people staffing it. I have always found “Oh” and the gang to be really helpful and professional. It is a small enough hotel that they will all know your name after the first day. The concierge was always helpful in giving advice, hailing cabs, making restaurant reservations and booking tickets. A nice touch is that they will often hand you a couple of bottled waters if you happen to be traveling very far.

Hotel Bar & Restaurants – Breakfast was included with my room. The breakfast area is very nice with options to sit inside or on the patio (the view is that of a small side street but they have done a nice job of enclosing the area with some trees). It has an excellent buffet as well as entrée options. The food is excellent and there is more than enough selection to keep most people happy for a 4 or 5-day stay. I have never eaten at the hotel outside of breakfast but Eve is a highly rated restaurant and very chic in the evening. There is also a café style restaurant. VUE is a small bar area on the main floor. In the evening it looks great and, at least during my stays, has always been very dressy & elegant. There are few stand-alone restaurants in the immediate area but there are many options at nearby hotels such as the St. Regis and Four Seasons. A 10-minute walk to Central World & area gives you a large number of dining options.

Tips:

#1: Three main options for getting to the hotel from the airport: Metered cab (250 – 300 THB // $8 - $10); Hotel car service (2000 THB / $60); and Skytrain (via the airport link). Personally I think that taking a regular cab is by far the best option. The whole taxi stand process at the airport is very efficient and it takes about 30 minutes to get to the hotel. I would advise that you make sure you take a print out of the hotel address, preferably in Thai (it is available on the hotel website), to speed communication with the driver. The Skytrain option will take you a while and you will have to change lines 3 times as well as drag your luggage on some very busy train cars.

#2: The Hansar is a member of the “Small Luxury Hotels of the World”. Membership is free and while I don’t recall major benefits, every little bit helps and maybe you get a free upgrade on your room out of it.

Our first stay at Hansar and also first time in Bangkok. Excellent stay at the hotel. We stayed in the Edge Suite and loved its smaller size, excellent amenities, top quality services, friendly and attentive hotel staff and its central location. Everywhere else in the city is loud but once you walk into the street leading to the hotel, you feel the peace and quiet straightaway. Very good and delicious breakfast buffet and dishes from the a la carte menu. But the coffee could have been served a little faster. We would choose Hansar Bangkok again.

We have just stayed at the Hansar Bangkok for two nights and this modern city hotel has a lot of positive points about it.

Upon arrival the large double doors and wooden stair case upto the reception area are stunningly modern with a sense of calmness. Check in was smooth and the staff are very efficient we were provided with a minted cold face towel and a glass of juice (could have been tastier).

The layout in the accommodation areas with open spaces and no closed corridors is part of their 'eco' policy meaning less aircon is a good idea although it makes the whole feel a little more like a block of flats with concrete floors.

Electronic entry to rooms is always good so no messing with keys and fobs. Upon entry to the room (1105) we were pleasantly surprised as the rooms are suitably appointed and have a nice feel to them, baggage was delivered without fuss. The mini bar was free (2 beers, 2 cokes, 2 orange, savory snacks) which always helps and is replenished on a daily basis.

We encountered a small issue that was the the mini bar fridge door would not close after a few calls to the front office an engineer came and was very apologetic for taking his time. After the hinge was changed the mini bar closed once more so no real drama.

Only small issue was on two occasions house keeping staff entered the room without pressing the bell, no harm done but there should be standards.

The bathrooms are very nice to the eye with everything that you could need. Internet connection was patchy and kept dropping out over the days that we were there. The TV channels had a good choice although again signal was a slight issue. Room service was prompt and served hot, the in room burger was excellent.

We always look forward to breakfast when away to start the day, Hansar didnt quite hit the mark with that. Eggs Benedict was poor with snotty eggs, no muffin and a tepid sauce. Tea and coffee were very good, the buffet selection its self was ok but nothing more, bread was great, sweet bakery selection was poor. The hot buffet section was decent with Asian specials. Cheeses fruits and yoghurts completed the selection. There was a laminated flip card for a menu on the table which we felt didnt fit the hotel and the quality of those dishes as mentioned was sub standard.

The concierge was very good and helpful, English levels were fantastic throughout the resort.

The pool was very nice and calming, 25 meters in length so laps were possible although could have been a little deeper! Cold water and nuts served at pool side whilst we were there. The steam room near to the pool was also very good and worth 20 minutes of our time.

Drinks at the the pool bar (bloody mary) were ok, drinks at the lounge bar (G&T) were a little weak in taste (30ml alc)

Overall a nice stay, and its location is perfect on the edge of Lumpini park a short walk from the Sukhumvit or Silom for shopping and eating.

Well done to Hansar you have a good product that can be enhanced and pushed further with a little care and love. We would definitely stay here again or in this area.

Just had our second stay at The Hansar (6 days). Like last year, it was pretty close to perfect. The modern very spacious accommodation, surprisingly peaceful yet central location, wonderful breakfasts and excellent spa and pool combine to provide all one needs in this vibrant city. And talking of breakfasts, there can be no more delightful and friendly Maitre d' than the wonderful Santi.

For us there is no decision to make when we book our next stay in Bangkok. The Hansar is the one for us.

I've stayed in 3 hotels in Bangkok all rated in the top 15 on Tripadvisor and this was my favorite. Great location close to the BTS, spacious and comfortable rooms with a modern decor that I appreciate and a great breakfast spread. The outdoor pool was a nice place to relax and cool off in the hot afternoon heat. Staff was helpful and friendly.

11/2012 - After driving past the Grand Hyatt, St Regis and Four Seasons in Bangkok, we saw a mini sign that says Hansar Hotel with an arrow pointing down an alley way. That was our destination. The location of the hotel was near well known American hotels, the mall and sky train. The highly rated hotel had a modern decor - very nice and swanky. The staff was friendly and took us and our bags up to our room. The room were newer and clean. We even got a free mini bar! The bath tub in the room was AMAZING - and I wish I had brought bath salts. Many friends who have been to Bangkok complained about the local area - and due to the large high end mall, 3 mins away and the main American hotels close by the police patrol the area frequently and it was a very safe/clean area. I a a big fan of higher end hotels and I would pick this hotel over any of the others close by. The price, accommodation and service are all 5 stars. For more information on my stay here please see my blog post goshrooney.blogspot.com.

I would def stay here again and once you stay here you will see why it is highly rated.

We chose an Edge Suite and it is gorgeous! Bangkok is so hectic but coming back to the serenity of our room really recharges the batteries. Breakfast is imaginative and surreal- from sweet & sour fish to eggs benedict! The hotel room is so well stocked it even has a stapler and a hole punch! Don't get too excited about the free mini bar- there is no champagne in it! (Just soft drinks and beer). We have eaten, swum, slept and drank here...and so far it has been faultless...we will be back!
