I had wanted to stay at this hotel for some time, following an excellent evening at the Medici restaurant and Speakeasy bar on a previous visit to the city. So I decided to depart from my usual destination and give it a go! I'm glad I did as it is a beautiful and unique hotel. The style is quite different from anything I have experienced in Thailand before, which is perhaps not surprising given that it seems to set out to capture the atmosphere of opulent travel in the late C19 / early C20 (but with all mod cons).
The reception area and my room were darkly but extremely well and tastefully furnished to the highest specifications. To be honest, I do not think I have ever been so intrigued by a hotel room before. The attention to detail was remarkable, the white linen of a very high quality, and the bed immensely comfortable. Despite not being a small hotel, it also manages to retain a distinctly boutique and quiet, if slightly trendy, feel. I ate in Le Salon for breakfast and dinner. Although I thought it was better for the latter, there's no denying the high quality of the food at either time of day.
In terms of getting around, Chit Lom BTS station is at the end of the road, less than 10 minutes walk away. It's also worth knowing that there is a cut through to Ratchadamri BTS station (turn right out of the hotel, cross the road, and take the first ungated left turn and follow the narrow twisting soi until it widens and straightens out past the Marriott Courtyard): it's a bit dark and quiet at night, so Chit Lom might be better for some then, but is busy with interesting very local looking eateries during the day. There are also plenty of more western style eateries, convenience stores and ATMs on the larger Langsuan Road as you head to Chit Lom.
In summary, a very nice hotel, which I'm glad I decided to stay at!
