We booked 3 nights stay at Hansar, after seeing reviews from a blog. Hansar belongs to the small luxury hotel of the world, and is a boutique hotel. I've stayed at the bigger hotel chains in Bangkok, and so, this time, tried something different.
Location- very convenient, 10 min walk from the major shopping area "Siam", and is just a few blocks away from a BTS Station. Because BTS trains (Skytrains) are very packed especially at peak hours, we find walking slowly to the shopping area saves time. However, because it is on a small road off the main road, and Hansar is not a big hotel, taxi drivers may not know where it is. The hotel is also a 10-15 walk away from the Lumphini park, where you can go for a jog if you are not afraid of the heat.
Lobby- up on the M floor, quite special. Lobby is small, does not feel like lobby, there are just 2 tables with a few sets of sofa. Feels like home. Check in is fast.
Room- This is the highlight! All rooms are suite, with separate living room and bedroom. The bathroom is large, with 2 wash basins. On entrance, there is a wall with plants on our left. However, you can't touch it, as it is a designated area surround by glass. There is no solid partition between different floors in the "plant area", so, ppl can look inside your living room (though not easily, due to reflection). The bed is good , king sized, with mattress not too soft/hard. The only thing to criticize is that there is no view from the window. Our room overlooked the homes of the apartment next door.
There is a gym, but we didn't go. The spa was okay, spacious, but the therapist is not as experienced as what I have in the specialist spas in town.
Swimming pool was small, but I don't think they can build a larger one. If you are thinking of a sunbath, it is not a good place with all the apartments around. Not too relaxing.
It is the worst that I have had in Bangkok. All the food was very average. We ordered egg benedict from the menu, but when the food arrived, it didn't look like the picture in the menu. There was also no noodles station. I think it would be a good idea to have a "Thai noodles station".
If I am going for shopping, and looking for a place like home (because of its suites), I will stay here again. However, if I want a more relaxing stay, I would go for Sukothai. If I want a relatively budget stay here the shopping centre, I would go for Holiday Inn (very good breakfast).
