Worth more than the price paid for

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 10, 2009

I caught a deal off Zuji which included flights via Cathay Pacific and a choice of hotels for 4 Days 3 Nights for S$296 per pax, twin sharing. The Hotel looked pleasant on the Zuji page and so I took a gamble.

It turned out to be more than the amount I paid for. Except for problems with the water pressure where hot and cold waters kept intertwining and rotating during a bath (the problem probably easily circumvented if you draw a tub soak), the hotel was way above the 3 stars it advertised itself. For once, humility paid bonuses.

The Hotel is located 5-10 minutes walk down Sukhumvit Soi 1 (or "neung" in Thai for 1), with residential homes surrounding it and a hospital within footsteps distance. There are a handful of convenience stores, restaurants, eateries, food stalls and even an art gallery down the side street. Ploen Chit BTS Station is just 5-10 minutes walk along busy Sukhumvit Road.

Reception is friendly and the concierge persistent. The language barrier meant that my request for a large taxi to bring my entourage around took a couple of trial and errors before getting it right...the staff was all apologetic and regretful....but most importantly, my request was met.

Free breakfast (consisting of a small but good choice of local and international offerings....you can pick from 5 different types of eggs!) was included with the stay, as well as a free flow of beverage between Happy Hours of 6-7pm daily. There is also free Wi-Fi.

The room was immaculately designed, minimalistic Thai, reasonably spacious, clean, comfortable and comes with a small kitchen with sink and microwave. There is even a tub!

There is a good choice of TV channels and the safe worked. There are robes, slippers, an umbrella and even an iron with ironing board.

Recreational facilities included a gym, sauna and an outdoor jacuzzi pool.
Alas, I never did find time to squeeze in an untilisation of these facilities.

As mentioned earlier, the hotel is boxed in by residential buildings on both sides. It does get a little surreal to be peeking out on your balcony and be looking at someone's laundry of the day.

So frankly, except for the water pressure issue, the Hotel outperformed the price I paid for it!

NOTE: The Hotel did warn that as the street was below sea level, during heavy rain, the road may get heavily flooded. Pack your swimming gears!

Unique Quality: 4 or even 5 stars, way above the 3 stars it self-advertised.

And 1 last bit: For Bangkok, this Hotel is Muslim-friendly. There are signs in the room indicating the direction of Mecca and the Hotel offers a Halal menu.

Directions: On the eastern side of the city, very near Ploen Chit BTS Station.
