I would say this area is a heaven for the shopper and the road here is seem very busy starting from 8 am. by the way from pratunam we can easily go to other part of bangkok by boat which is so convenient as it is very fast, just walk to the corner for 5 mins, The hotel itself is very new and all staff look very modern with the style and make up, friendly and helpfull they are. The room was cleaned and in good condition plus an excellent service from the bell boy, front and the restaurant team

This hotel will blow your socks off. As everyone else has said, the staff is so welcoming every time you set foot on the property whether its your first day or fifth day. We've yet to have to open any door for ourselves as they are very attentive to your comfort. Very clean, quiet, and modern. The hotel is new and vibrant and without a doubt a great choice for the price! Highly recommended.

We were in Bangkok just for one night and wanted a hotel close to the shopping area especially for my wife. I am so glad we made the choice of this hotel as it is perfect.

It is situated in the heart of the shopping district. In fact the hotel is located on the top of Shibuya 19 fashion mall which is a very good mall for shopping for clothes + shoes. Opposite is the famous Pantip IT Mall and also the Platinum mall and next door is the Pratunam wholesale market, You shop, come back and drop your shopping and go back again to shop :))

The hotel is new and hip , the young staff speaks good English and are very helpful. The WIFI connection is excellent and the room was very comfortable and not at all noisy inspite of the busy area outside.

There is also a 7/11 opposite and a 24 hours Macdonalds in the same building.

Highly recommended !

Room Tip: Ask for a upgrade. We asked for one and they upgraded us to a corner bigger room just like that !

Superb hotel among all my Bangkok travel experiences. Fabulous customer service officers with sweet smiling make my pleasant day. In heart of Pratunam and easy access to any places in Bangkok city. Highly recommended for Asian travelers which keen and crazy about shopping in Platinum Fashion Mall, Pantip Plaza, Central World, Gaysorn or Praying at Erawan Shrine.

Only a setback as the Petchaburi Road has the never ending traffic jam from 8am-9pm ;)

Hotel is at a superb location for shopping. It's on the 7th floor of Shibuya Shopping Center, next to Pratunam Market and opposite Platinum Mall. A walk to Central Mall takes about 15 minutes.

Hotel staff are all able to converse in fluent English. They are very friendly and helpful. I requested for a later check out time, as the hotel is full, they are only able to extend my room for 1 more hour. However, the staff informed me that I can actually make use of their luggage storage and shower facilities if necessary. We were also greeted with a smile everytime we walked past the lobby.

Room is big and spacious. 2 different types of pillow were provided, as well as complimentary drinking water. As the hotel is very new, the room and bathroom were also super clean.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay.

I spend 4 days (23-26 sept) in Bangkok with family. We choose this hotel because we read in tripadvisor this very nice hotel, then the score from tripadvisor around 9.6. This hotel is new, they opened on 1st august so everything still clean, new, cozy. The Lobby hotel is in the 7th floor, our room is in 11th floor. We have a good view. I booked deluxe room with 2 single bed, the room is big and the interior design is very nice. Bed is very comfy and soft. Bathroom was veryyyy clean. 1st floor until 5th floor is a mall, 6th floor is a food court and very cheap. Near the hotel you can find platinum mall ( which is very good for us), grand plaza! Central world then pantip plaza (electronic mall). Or you can walk around 10 minutes to MBK center. On the last day we go to mega store (if you want branded stuff, and in here you can find ikea) this store is 15 minute from airport.
The staff is very helpful,humble.
We are very happy, and definitely will recomended this hotel.

Room Tip: Beware off taxi and tuktuk! They will bring you to the jewelry shop (fake diamond). If you need tax...

Me and my husband stayed in Bangkok for 3 nights for one purpose only:
Shopping .
The hotel has the best location to all the shopping areas you can think of:
Platinum mall
Partunam market
Central world
Paragon
Mbk
You name it! All in WALKING distance.
Now, the hotel is brand new. We stayed in the most basic room which was big and beautiful. Great view, very state of the art. One remote control , controls all the lights , AC and so on.
Bed is EXTREMLY soft as well as the cousins . If you like your mattress firm than you may have an issue. I loved it, my husband nOt so much.
Breakfast was great and staff very friendly .
What can I say . My third visit to Bangkok and I loved it more than ever.
Highly recommended.
