Like they say "ones men's meat is another men's poison"... The Library is definitely my MEAT!
Located right in the centre of bustling Chaweng, but yet you would only get peace and serenity within The Library's premises. This is thanks to the super job by the security staff, whom always ensure outsiders are kept out at all times. From the lobby entrance to the rooms, you can sense this hotel will 100% tickle any arty vibes in you, coz its so amazingly well designed and everything is kept to a 'minimum'. I have never taken so much pictures of any hotels I visited until I stepped into The Library.. My eyes were constantly scanning for the thousands of little nice touches and details during my 2 nights stay. From the DnD signage in rooms, the extensive use of natural lightings to the red pool and the many white man figurines spread throughout the premises. Room was very sizable and comfy, and had everything I needed. Do not think the room concept will appeal to all, but I love it for the clean and minimalist look, and the amount of space is to die for...
Ambience and quality of F&B within its in-house restaurant and bar were surprisingly great, exceeding my expectations for a small size hotel like this. Spent many nights, including non stay nights, at the Drink Gallery, as I simply just loved sitting by the comfy couches by the ceiling-to-floor glass windows, watching the busy world zooming by while enjoying the creative cocktails or nice selection of wine.
The Library, like the Hansar brand, is an excellent example of a local owned, built and run hotel that has somehow got all its formulas right (and perfected), creating a very accommodating and pleasant experience for all its guests, as expected from the wonders of Thai hospitality.
