Just barely open for two weeks, this boutique property could be the winner in Bangkok.
As it is, the hotel has open only two floors of guestrooms at this moment while the rest will be open in a couple of weeks' time, though one staff admitted that it will probably be only before the year ends when the hotel operates in full swing. Eventually it will have 174 rooms including 11 suites.
Lobby was small with four desks both served as check in and concierge, they even hired a guitarist to play in the lobby. Checking in was fine, they have guest relationship managers to take care of that even though hotel staff weren't clear on the type of package I signed up for. A hand garland were presented together with a gift, I suppose that's for the A Club platinum recognition. Upgrade of room was from a normal Deluxe Room to the Corner Room (what they call a Grand Deluxe).
Room was of good size, loads of wood, floor was distressed timber flooring, which depending on one's taste, you could love it or loathe it. Overall build quality was very good, certainly a few notches above Hotel Vie, another MGallery property in Bangkok. I like the bathroom a lot, with use of black marble, with details and classy. Bed was very comfy sleep-inducing king-sized bed, 42" Flat panel TV. A huge plate of welcome fruit awaited. All in all, very handsomely furnished.
The underlying theme of this hotel was the westernization of the Old Siam during the Rama V reign , so I supposed he was the muse? So expect a little old world, and colonial which is fine by me but I find the overuse of its logo 'M' on shower floors, elevator doors, elevator entrance, bedsheets render it rather Disney-esque. I mean is it necessary to a stamp on my unused toilet roll after every housekeeping with that logo?
Breakfast at currently the only restaurant on 19th floor was lovely and a highlight for me. I had an in room breakfast the first morning which was nice (and included in my room package). I decided for forego the in room breakfast and check out the restaurant, and boy was glad I did. It's order by menu and cooked a la minute type of breakfast which I prefer. Never in my life have I had steaks for breakfast but on this morning why not and when served, very tasty indeed. My egg Benedict was done impressively as well, and so was my Phad Thai. Another restaurant, the Italian one, Medici will be open in a couple of weeks.
Gym was small but adequate, the adjoining pool was very small as well, it's facing the condominiums and rather in view of all the condo residents. Probably good for a dip and bob around.
Service was all right though not slick but the staff were eager to please. Give it some time and they'll shine.
Chitlom BTS Station is only 7 minutes walk away. Next to the station is a 7 storey Central Chitlom D...
