I can’t recall how I came to notice Hotel de Bangkok in the first place but what I can say is, I have no regrets booking this hotel for our 4 days 3 nights Bangkok trip.
I booked 2 rooms via Agoda at only RM 113 per night for a standard room (a.k.a. Urban Room) including breakfast. As soon as we reached, we asked the receptionist to help us with Internet subscription. Although she couldn’t help in the end, but she tried her best and was very friendly. We were also served with welcome drink – a very amazing pineapple soda!
The butler was very welcoming and friendly while transferring our luggage so I gave him 60 baht as tip. It’s only RM 6 after all. Wanted to give him more but lack of small change lol
The room is considered spacious and cozy. Equipped with hair dryer, fridge, TV, safe deposit box, wardrobe and dressing table. Towels and toiletries like shampoo, shower gel and soap were provided too. The best thing is, there’s a bath tub! Yay! Can take a nice hot bath after a long day shopping!
I requested for interconnecting rooms for convenience and I’m glad I did! I can go to my friend’s room anytime I want hehe! There’s one disadvantage though – I can hear my friends’ voices when they talk and laugh although I couldn’t hear exactly what they say.
Location wise, it is quite near Ratchaprarop Airport Rail Link station – around 5 minutes walk. Distance to the nearest BTS (Phaya Thai and Victory Monument) was 1 km so we chose to board the train from Ratchaprarop Airport Rail station to Phaya Thai (only one station) and then interchange to BTS Phaya Thai. The best thing is, it is only 7 minutes walk from Pratunam Market!
The breakfast provided was more than decent. I initially didn’t expect much from them because based on my previous experiences, free breakfast from hotel normally have very limited choice. At Hotel de Bangkok, they have rice, fried noodle (type of noodle varies everyday), bread, cereal, sausages, fried egg, a variety of fresh salad, coffee, tea, orange juice and pineapple juice.
On the day before we leave, we asked the helpful receptionist to help us book a cab to the airport. Since the 4 of us have a total of 6 luggage bags, we need a larger cab – a Toyota Innova at 600 baht which is cheaper than booking 2 normal cabs that will cost us 600 baht + toll fare.
I’ll definitely be staying here again during my next trip to Bangkok (hopefully soon :p)!
