Checked-in at Holiday Inn Bangkok as a Stay Jolly Campaign winner in early June 2012. Upon checking-in, I was warmly welcomed with welcome drink and greeted by hotel staffs. Ms.Juthamas, who had been handling my reservations, met me on arrival and informed that the room has been upgraded to a Superior room, and then she guided me to the room on floor 15 of the North Wing which was at the back and no noise from streets.
The Superior room was spacious with just perfect lighting. A tropical fruit tray with a welcome card from the Hotel Manager was placed on a coffee table by a comfortable armchair. The bed was big and comfy. There were two types of pillow suits your preference, firm or soft. I used both of them at the same time! Bathroom was nice and filled with all toiletries you may need. There was no bathtub in this room, only a shower cubicle. There was also a safety box, an ironing board with an ironing machine in the closet! Electric pot, tea & coffee sets were provided in room. I quite like this room for its size and livable touch.
Breakfast at Café G on ground floor with the busy Ploen Chit Road view outside was nice (we – on holiday, they - work!). Breakfast was nice, with many styles and choices to choose from western to oriental to Thai. The wait staffs were friendly and attentive. One morning I had asked for hot tea and was served, but found out later that Japanese green tea was also available. A young lady wait staff later offers me a pot of hot green tea as she remembered my preference. That was really nice! I thanked her for such a nice service but feel sorry that I didn’t ask for her name. Café G is also famous for their dinner buffet at a very reasonable price, which I would recommend to family or a group of friends. I have not tried the other restaurants in the hotel though.
My friend and I spent a warm afternoon tanning and swimming at the lovely swimming pool. There was a lifeguard attending the pool for your safety. The gym was located downstairs and equipped with quite a few machines but didn’t use it.
The hotel is located next to Intercontinental Hotel where there was connecting corridor to Gaysorn Plaza and Skywalk linked to Central Chitlom, Central World Plaza & Siam Paragon. BTS Sky Train Chitlom station is right in front of the hotel, so it is convenient to get around town. I think the nearest 7-Eleven would be about 10mins walk in Soi Langsuan or else you can find MaxValu Tanjai just cross the road on basement of The Erawan. Big C Super Center is also only 5mins away via Gaysorn Plaza and pass Arnoma Hotel.
Ploen Chit Road right in front of the hotel is sort of one-way towards Ratchaprasong intersection, with one lane allowed towards Wireless Road and for Expressway toll only. The road could be quite busy and traffic could be jam throughout the day, so if you’re not familiarized with traffic in Bangkok then it’s best to get some advises and plan your direction of travel before getting on a taxi.
Overall I would definitely recommend Holiday Inn Bangkok for their convenient location, reasonable room rates, and friendly services.
