This is a relatively “new kid on the block”. Many taxi drivers do not know the exact location of the hotel. Some driver might know if you mentioned the US Embassy but for my case, I realized that the US Embassy consists of 2 parts separated by the Wireless Road. On one side of Wireless Road is the US Embassy’s administrative office while on the opposite side of the road is the US Embassy’s residence compound. To be exact, direction to the Oriental Residence should be travelling from Lumphini Park to Wireless Road, passing by the US Embassy and before the Embassy of Netherland.
The property consists of the hotel and Residence apartments. The hotel lobby is airy, bright with high roof ceiling. Check in was seamless. The front office staff attended to me can speak excellent English. She escorted me to my suite on the 30th Floor and briefed me all the facilities and amenities available in the room.
The one bedroom suite is big; 70 sq meters. The room is tasteful decorated with premium furnishing. It comes with a fully equipped kitchen and the balcony overlooks the US Embassy’s compound. The bedroom with hardwood flooring is well appointed. Bed is super comfortable. The marble bathroom could be the most spacious in the City. The premium toiletries will be collectors’ items.
The swimming pool is located on the 4th floor, not very big with limited lounge chairs and cabana. The fitness centre is relatively small.
There are free shuttles to the nearby BTS Station. Unlike most hotels, the concierge of Oriental Residence will drop you to the BTS station as and when requested. Most hotels only follow a fixed schedule.
During my staff, staffs were helpful and service was excellent. My only complaint was the weak complimentary wifi.
