“charming colonial mansion in a leafy suburb of bangkok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2008

from the airport pick-up in the old merc, to the copper bathtub in our room

this place is super-romantic, super-charming, and a great breath of fresh air if you're a bit tired of white-minimalist cristina ong/banyan tree-style spa-hotels

the hotel is small and charming.. the pool also.. if you need otherwise go somewhere else

in a world being invaded by blandness, stereotypes, big brands, its wonderful to find somewhere with true personality

thank you eugenia x

  • Liked — the charm and individuality
  • Disliked — the floorboards were a bit precarious.. perhaps need a good sanding!

When we arrived we were informed we had been upgraded to a 'Eugenia Suite', and the room was beautiful. Simple decor, with furniture and decorating kept in original style. There were thoughtful touches in the room such as a fresh fruit platter and fresh coconut juice upon arrival. The staff were extremely helpful and made clear to us the facilities available at the hotel and how to use them. The atmosphere of the hotel was one of tranquillity, whether in the room or in the common areas. As the hotel only has twelve rooms, we received a personal treatment and enjoyed the private feel of the hotel. Altogether an excellent stay!

What a fantastic experience. It's not your typical hotel, but it has all the charm of an old colonial style house. On arrival we were picked up by an old jaguar (gorgeous). We had the smallest room in the hotel, but we didnt mind, since we only stayed 2 nights. The service was excellent, the food was great, the bed nice and cozy.... the location was a little off. It's a good (complicated) walk from the skytrain and taxis were not familiar with the hotel. But my husband and I still loved it, and will definitely go back.

After two months of travelling IndoChina our last four days were spent at the Eugenia in Bangkok. We'd arranged for pick-up at the airport and transfer back to the hotel in one of the Eugenia's classic autos. The guide slept all the way back to the hotel (luckily the driver was wide awake!). A quick overview of the city is usually the norm when being picked up by a hotel representative.

The hotel is definitely charming, the ground floor beautifully furnished, and we loved the opportunity to dip into the pool upon arrival. We dined in-house the first night and after settling into the intimate dining room we discovered absolutely no Thai food on the menu! We had to eat in the bar/lounge to enjoy the wonderful cuisine of the country. The breakfast menu is presented - with prices - and absolutely no explanation that one dish is gratis with the room stay. Nor could the staff understand enough English to confirm if fruit was available with the breakfast courses.

The staff comes across as a bit haughty but efficient overall. One day we asked for directions to a specific business. The directions were completely inaccurate, we were sent to an entirely different area of the city, and wasted over two hours of our morning. When we later complained to the individual a shouting match ensued in the hotel lobby. VERY poor form.

The housekeeping service was hit and miss with dirty dishes left in our room and turn down service only offered one night. On the whole I would say the Eugenia is definitely not up to the standards offered at Relais & Chateaux hotels. I would not recommend the hotel nor will we stay there again.

  • Liked — Within walking distance to the small canal where the boat/bus operates & the neighbourhood
  • Disliked — Haughty staff, dining room menu, poor housekeeping service

We stayed at the Eugenia for only one night (more's the shame) but it was absolute perfection.

The service, from the very minute we arrived until we left, was impeccable. We had the very real perception that we were miles away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.

I would agree with the other reviews that the location is probably not ideal, but as we had no need to leave the hotel for the 24 hours we were there, it wasn't a problem.

We stayed in the Eugenia Suite, which was gorgeous as was the enormous bubble bath we enjoyed.

Would thoroughly recommend the Eugenia for a romantic getaway with service on a very personal level.

Amazing and SO stylish!
From the quirky , stylish front of house staff to the copper bath tubs, the REAL Irish linen bedsheets to the French Maid costumes on the great female hotel wait staff, not to mention the dozen or so single malts and all the vodka and gin brands known to man and all stacked on antique furniture AND a "die for " wall of art , design and cooking books, this place is HEAVEN. The pool is wonderful as are the vintage cars that tootle one around.
A design triumph in that wonderful crossover style between the best of Colonial Asia and the best of the quirkiness of the great small London hotels all served up in a manner that could only be Thai. The poms sort of get the style thing together but rarely nail the service thing, they have to rely on the young Euros to help them past the shopkeeper thing, whereas this establishment has mastered the crossover-

We just got back from a weekend stay in a Sawasdee room at The Eugenia. Overall we were very happy with the hotel & would stay there again. However, we would warn off those who are expecting the same service as at a full-service Bangkok hotel. This is a small boutique city hotel with simple but tasteful furnishings & simple but sincere service.

The ground floor public areas (bar, restaurant, pool) are decorated in a charming colonial style - the bar is a beautiful place to have an evening cocktail, with a library, stuffed peacock, old maps, carved wood screens, daybeds, comfy sofas etc. providing a cozy ambience. The restaurant is a jewel box with gorgeous blue/gold chinoiserie painted wallpaper (though we didn't eat there). The pool in the courtyard is smallish but adequate for a dip. Our room was rather spare & felt less well decorated than the other areas, but this didn't bother us too much. The hammered aluminum tub had plenty of hot water supply.

We had airport transfers in a lovely restored vintage Jaguar S-class - highly recommended. They have a full fleet of vintage cars available to choose from. The service wasn't as seamless as you'll find at the Oriental, Peninsula, etc., but we wouldn't expect that from a much smaller & less expensive hotel. Definitely recommended for those seeking an alternative to the large chain hotels. Also in a terrific location for restaurants, bars, shopping along the trendy stretch of Sukhumvit.

Note too that the Relais & Chateaux web site didn't have the correct availability information when I tried to book (said it was available when it wasn't) - contact the hotel directly.
