We were pleasantly surprised when our taxi pulled into the Porte-cochere of Oriental Residences, not only we were instantaneously greeted by friendly staff but when we were ushered into a lobby, in front of us is not a typical nor conventional 5 star lobby but an intimate, cozy, homely and unpretentious lobby that welcomes you. The feel of coming home and sense of belonging was immediately felt, and little do we know, they do offer Private Ownership for those that enjoy high-life and for those would crave for a residence in the heart of Bangkok.
We checked into a one-bedroom suite. The spacious suite was well designed and the choice of the furniture and deco is exquisitely appointed. It is a perfect place for holiday makers as the room is well equipped with a kitchenette, living area and all the amenities you would expect from a 5 Star luxury hotel. Business traveller would also love the abundant of power points available in the room as well as the free WIFI access. The bed is very comfortable and the toilet is marvelously spacious. You can experience the attention to detail in every aspects from the renowned TWG tealeaf to cup coaster to the bathroom amenities.
It is located in the Embassy area, and some of the room command a panoramic view over the lush greeneries. Diagonally opposite the hotel is the All Seasons Place where you can find supermarket, eatery outlets and exquisite shopping.
The breakfast is served at Café Claire. Though the seating capacity is not huge but for a 145 units residences it is marginally adequate. The ambience is truly relaxing, and to sip a cup of hot aromatic coffee facing the greens is simply heavenly. The only downside is the buffet/a la carte order is not as extensive as compared to those large hotels.
The hotel provides free shuttle service to the nearest BTS station that make the shopping experience hassle free. For those prefer to take a walk, it is also a mere 10 mins walk.
Although our stay at the Oriental Residences Bangkok is brief, the fond memories were further enhanced by the friendly and helpful hotel staff. We would highly recommend any regular Bangkok tripper or even first-timer to try out the Oriental Residences Bangkok for a brand new stay experience!
