The Ascott chain is an established one and we booked a 2 room executive apartment at this property which sits smack on Sathorn Road as they had a very special offer going on. In the holiday apartment industry the Ascott group perhaps stands as one of the top ones.
The 2 room executive apartment was fully and tastely furnished and clean (with lots of storage space for long stays), even though I reckoned that a refurbishment would be required in the near future. We had at least 1,200 sq feet of living pace with a fully equipped kitchen and washing machine and dryer and a balcony. The living room/lounge space was ample and came with a working desk and dining table. Each bedroom had its own bathroom which was well appointed, including L'Occitane toiletries - my favourite.
The salt water pool was adequate in size for my laps and had a great view. There was a jacuzzi located next to the pool and both were well maintained.
The staff at reception and at all levels were very professional and efficient.
In particular I tried to test the knowledge of the concierge known to me as Tim and he really seemed to know what was going on and where and when given a number of tasks, he got them done promptly and efficiently.
Being located on Sathorn, there was no problem in getting a taxi except perhaps during rush hour. The property is also about a 5 to 10 minute walk from the nearest MRT station.
The buffet breakfast which was included in our package is the best so far that we have had, within the hotel apartment category of properties. The quality of the food was high, fresh and tasty.
Yuet Mei, my cousin was pleasant surprised one evening when they brought up a birthday cake and a little teddy bear to celebrate her birthday.
On departure I remarked that the Ascott Sathorn polo t shirts that were worn by some of the staff looked really smart and that I wanted to purchase one. I was told that the shirts were only for staff and that they were not available to guests. About three weeks later after reaching home, a package arrived for me and in it was an Ascott Sathorn polo t shirt in the right size just for yours truly.
