I booked the Hansar for three nights of vacation on our first visit to Bangkok. I saw it on Jetsetter, but actually found a much better deal on the Small Luxury Hotels of the World website, where you can get packages and upgrades. We had a perfect stay at the Hansar, and the hotel really couldn't be any better.
ROOMS: We stayed in the Urban Suite, which cost just a little bit more than the Studio but seemed worthwhile for the extra space. The lush in-suite garden was a nice touch. The Urban Suite had a separate living room with ample desk space, and a large, very comfortable bedroom connected to a huge bathroom. The bathroom was huge and spotless, but the glass walls around the toilet made it so only one person could use the bathroom anyway. There was plenty of storage, but no doors on the closets, which is not a huge deal but would've been nice to have them. The mini bar is minimal, but free!
SERVICE: The service at the Hansar is wonderful, and every staff member we encountered went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The concierge went above and beyond with helping us get taxis, book a cool private boat tour of the canals, and give us tips on navigating Bangkok as a tourist.
RESTAURANTS: The on-site restaurants are worth a try for good food at a good price. We ordered room service for both a late-night snack as well as breakfast, and quickly received delicious food at a reasonable price. We also had lunch at the bar by the stunning pool, which was tasty, and two-for-one drinks at the lobby bar, which were a little weak but still good.
LOCATION: The location is excellent. It's in a very upscale area, right next door to the Four Seasons and St. Regis, and the neighborhood feels very safe at night. (You can also grab a great cocktail at the Four Seasons, too.) It's also right near a Skytrain station, one stop from the night market.
SPA: The spa is worth a visit, even if you don't usually visit the spa on your vacations. We had two treatments (Siam Massage and Signature Body Scrub), both of which were excellent. The spa is spotless and serene, and the service was very professional. It was a great way to relax, and the prices seemed almost cheap.
OVERALL: The Hansar seems like a steal, and I would definitely stay again.
