A week of time out to begin a writing project was well supported by a warm, fuss free and quiet, affordable 5 star pampering.
Riverside convenience allows 'easy on the mind' river commute to sites if you are into them or nearby mall/market offerings.
My room (2405) on the 24 floor allowed easy access to horizon lounge. Here private alcoves overlook the river and my four hour 'productive breakfasts' yielded a wealth of creative dividends for me.
My room was spotless and spacious and excellently appointed in 'Thai modern' mingling traditional wall hangings and carved plaques with a tasteful marble bathroom.
The window seat couch alcove was a cosy nook for dreaming far above the Bangkok city hussle.
Well trained staff all know what to do and when. Seamless service.
There are a couple plusher hotels (by a slim margin) that you'll pay 40% premium for. But only one or two may come close in the location stakes.
I will return!!
