This is probably the best hotel we have ever stayed in!!!! We arrived later in the afternoon and decided to catch the express train from the airport. This was a really fast service to Makkasan Station which was cheap and quick. The only problem was we caught the train to Lumpini Stn and walk to the hotel from there.. Yea well it decided to poor down and we got drenched, absolutely drenched! So the next morning took a taxi direct to Makkasan and it was approx 15min to the Stn much better...
On arrival the staff were extremely welcoming and pleasant. We probably looked like 2 drowned rats and the staff worked extremely quick to check us in and show us to our room.
We had the 1 Bed City view room. This was located on the top floor room 2102. AMAZING, seriously!!!!!
The poor staff member showed us in and quickly gave us both towels from the bathroom. He showed us all of the amenities that the room had to offer.
Attention to detail is certainly a priority for this residence. They offer all kinds of adapters to keep you charged, a little bowel of suites on your kitchen table and numerous other little nick nacs for your stay. The bed was super comfy with some of the softest sheets we have ever slept in. There is also a pillow menu on offer. The bathroom is nearly as big as the bedroom with exquisite decor to match. We decided to get room service as we were quite tired, the Red Duck Curry was so tasty!
The next morning there was a local paper on the door and a nice fruit bowl of apples as you exit the lift. The doorman got us a taxi and provided the taxi driver number if there were any problems.
The only thing that we were sad about Is having to leave the next morning. If you need to stay in Bangkok don't go past this place. We will definitely be back! It is number one on trip advisor for a reason....
