Hotel Review-Somerset Suanplu Park-Bangkok

My recent finding in Bangkok...this property is more of a service residents which also caters for short terms visitors. It is located in Sathorn area of Bangkok, area where most foreign embassies are located. 

external view of the hotel....i stayed at the 10th floor

while waiting for the staffs to prepare my room, i wander around at the lovely garden fronting the lobby area..

prior to that, the staffs offered me to take a shower at the spa facility located at the 5th floor of this hotel. This is where the swimming pool, gym, spa and sauna is located.

At almost to 2pm, my room was readied.

As you enter the room, you'll be greeted with contemporary arts decor....

Needless to note that the room is so spacious with separate living area, bedroom, kitchen and dining area

the bedroom is furnished with comfy king bed, and appliances are well kept in the ceiling high cupboard. There is also a tv set in the bedroom for bedtime viewing

The bathroom is accessible from the living room and the bedroom. It is medially sized with minimal amenities.

the kitchen area is well stocked with kitchen appliances such as microwave and refrigerator as well as cooking utensils and cutlery and dining ware. I really love how attention to details were reflected in the manner they arranged the cutlery and dining ware

now the best part of the room is it's balcony..offering unprecedented view of Bangkok skylines...i could sit here for hours watching the sun down......

breakfast in this hotel is nothing to shout was not elaborate but rather simple...what i like is that they have a coffee machine whereby you can choose different types of coffee from mocha to cappuccino to your likings.
All in all, Somerset Suanplu was a wonderful stay and if the price is right i wont hesitate to stay here again. It is located near to the centre of actions in Silom road whereby a taxi ride will only cost around THB60. It is also nearer to the city centre compared to my last stay in Chatrium Residence. The staffs were friendly and greeted you with smiles all the times. If you need to be in the heart of the city but still want some peace and quite time...this is the place to be-Kay 2011
