We enjoyed our stay at the Hansar in Bangkok but there were a few things that could have been better.
The hotel is quite new and right along Rajdamri Road. It is a very short walk to the BTS station (literally at the end of the street) and a slightly longer walk (about 8 minutes) to Central World mall and the other malls in the Siam area. So well located for getting around and shopping. There doesn't seem to be many local Thai restaurants around the hotel but we didn't really look.
The hotel decor is very modern and was very much to our taste. There is a lot of wood and funky modern fittings and furniture. The rooms were well appointed and the modern design was carried through here. We booked a suite which was nice but we felt it was a little small for what we paid. There is a glass shaft that runs down through the building and forms sort of a greenhouse feature as you enter the room. It is a nice touch but takes up a bit of room.
The bathroom was huge and amazing. There was wood and mirrors everywhere and a separate glass room with the shower and bath, the shower floor was a little slippery so be careful!. Just great to look at and shower in but the only bugbear was that there was no rack to hang towels on.
Breakfast and mini bar was included in our room rate which is always a bonus. The mini bar was pretty limited with only a few drinks and snacks but it was replenished daily. Breakfast was an a la carte and buffet arrangement in that you order what you want and then visit the buffet for side dishes while you wait. The food was very tasty and good quality but the choice was quite limited. Decor in the restaurant was very cool and I was pretty excited about sitting in one of the giant purple chairs (think Mr. Burns chair on the board).
The pool was pretty cool and goes right up to the side of the building on the fourth floor from memory. There is shower, gym and sauna facilities here which is handy if you need to check out but have a late night flight (we were able to check out and then have a shower at the hotel before our 6pm flight).
The staff in the main were fantastic, the restaurant staff were great and very attentive and the valets and doormen were absolutely outstanding. We had planned to visit a few small out of the way places and the guys out front knew exactly where we needed to go and directed us or our cab drivers. It is the first time in a little while that we haven't got lost trying to find somewhere in Bangkok! The only issue we had with the staff was at check in when they asked what time we would like to check out. We told them and it wasn't mentioned again until we went to go up to our room. We queried if the time we specified was ok and after some back and forth we were told that check out was set and could not be changed. Why ask what time we need to check out if it makes no difference?
Overall the Hansar is a very nice hotel, in a great location that looks and feels very modern; however there is just a couple of areas where I think they could do a little more to really create a great experience for guests.
