“Very good W by super high Asian standards”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

I spent one Friday night at this W while on business in Bangkok. Checked in at about midnight at a party atmosphere which is somewhat expected at a W. The Woobar is right next to the front desk and quite loud in a good way - except it can be a bit hard to discuss any special requests at the front desk. I had booked a Fantastic suite, but received a complimentary upgrade to a Marvelous Suite.
The room was outstanding - too bad I was not in town for a party - this would have been perfect. Very cool decorations, great views from a high floor. The suite has a very high-tech feel including a bedside tablet computer for controlling the lights, A/C separately for both rooms and even the Do-not-disturb sign. Wireless internet access is available throughout the hotel public areas and room.
Some reviewers have expressed concern for lack of privacy due to open design of the bathroom and toilet. This room has an additional spacious toilet with a real door right next to the entrance.
I did not eat dinner/lunch at the hotel but the breakfast buffet is super! It features western and Asian dishes, classics and some creative variations. I highly recommend.
The local area around the hotel seems very quiet at night and Saturday, apparently it is financial district. The location is somewhat detached from major tourist attractions or partying but well connected by BTS around the corner or a short cab ride. Taxi to / from the airport is very convenient and cheap.

Public areas and room are nicely designed. There is an eye for detail on many aspects. E.g. the carpet in the elevator is changed a couple of times per day, so that it says "good morning" in the morning en good afternoon.... in the afternoon.
Location is fine, and close to MRT, but not the best you will find in Bangkok for leisure activities, allthough the Siam nightlife area is only 10 minutes walking.

Bathroom is very well appointed with a nice light scheme. Privacy is limited, so brinh your loved one if yo stay in the same room.

Two disadvantages of the hotel:
- Music everywhere. The bar is in the lobby, next to the front desk, and the music was way too loud (on sunday evening, pathetic actually, because there were only a few guests in the bar). We could hardly hear the reception staff.
- The breakfast is so sumptuous, that you will gain weight if you stay here too long :-)

Hi MarkyMAmsterdam,
Thank you for your great feedback. We are thrilled to know that you loved most of the aspects in the hotel. It is true, we are in the Central Business District so you don’t have hawkers on the streets as soon as you leave the hotel and it is in a quieter area but we are only 1 station away from Saladaeng BTS station - Patpong night market and night clubs, 2 stops to the river where you can visit Asiatique or 3 stops to Siam where all the major shopping malls are. Music is one of our passion points so we want to ensure you enjoy it.
We look forward to exceeding all your expectations when you return to W Bangkok.
All the best,
Nick Heath

W hotel is one of the trendiest modern hotels in Bangkok. The chic furnishings and hip music is everywhere, at every corner that you turn. I love the spacious room, its brilliant designs and I slept well on the absolutely comfortable bed. I was very impressed by the tablet by the bedside for lights, alarm clock, AC control, all in one. Technology rocks!

Some people hate the open-concept bathroom (it has no wall and door), but I love it! Maybe I am claustrophobic. Hahaha… The spacious and edgy bathroom with black tiles, powerful rain shower and toiletries from Bliss scored brownie points with me.

I read many splendid reviews of the breakfast spread, but sadly it didn’t work for me. Maybe I had been too spoilt by much better breakfast spread at Emporium Suite and Sofitel Sukhumvit.

The location of W Bangkok is right in the main financial district of Bangkok and it is rather accessible, with Chong Nonsi BTS just 5 minutes away. As with most financial districts, they turned into ghost town once night falls. Good shopping and massage areas are at least one BTS station away; it is far away from most touristy spots.

They stuck cute little promotional "post-it" for a 1 for 1 drink in my room, so I thought I should take advantage of it and went down to Woo Bar to have some drinks, but the bar was so empty, only myself and another 3 tables of guests. Boring.

Most of the staff here are trendy and nice, but somehow, I felt they lack that traditional Thai spirit of hospitality.

Hi myokiki,
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are thrilled to know that you liked so many aspects of our hotel, like the service and hotel design. It is true, we are in the Central Business District so you don’t have hawkers on the streets as soon as you leave the hotel and it is in a quieter area but we are only 1 station away from Saladaeng BTS station - Patpong night market and night clubs, 2 stops to the river where you can visit Asiatique or 3 stops to Siam where all the major shopping malls are. The “Post-it” promotion is our current thing that we do with all guests and also change every day with a new promotion.
Once again we appreciate your feedback and sincerely look forward to welcoming you back again.
All the best,
Nick Heath

Stayed for 6 nights and it was fantastic!

1. all the staff - friendly + hospitable (bell, recept, concierge, restaurant etc)
they speak good english, extremely attentive to your needs, friendly, helpful and all that you expect of a 5 stars hotel.

2. breakfast - luxury + sumptuous
we are spoil for choice, they have everything you can think of for breakfast. we had 7 days of breakfast at W and we're not complaining! awesome!

3. house-keeping are done TWICE a day! can you imagine that?
everything you need ever need you'll find it in your room (W can provide postage services too!), if you cant find it, all you have to do is to ask. EXCEPT wifi - sorry guys everything is provided except wifi. you have to pay for it.

4. location - very near (walking distance, less than 5mins) from Chong Nonsi BTS (2 stops away from Siam Paragon/ Siam Centre). 7-11 & starbucks are like 2 mins away. Health Land massage (family style) is 10mins walk/ 5mins drive. Ku de ta is 2 mins away (Sathorn Square).

highly recommend - they are so professional and so thoughtful. i feel like a princess every minute of my stay in W. there is hardly anything not to like about W. Go for it!

When you love a hotel, it's hard to give the details since you could go on and on for pages of reviews. To cut it short: absolutely trendy, rooms are a dream, especially the bathroom setting and layout. Service is just perfect and very personalized. Breakfast is pure luxury. We loved the pool and the entire sundeck. Pool Bar, lobby bar ... all just excellent. The concierge gave us a top recommendation of a very nice and nearby Thai restaurant, very casual, exactly what we had asked for. Well done! Will come back for sure!

Absolutely beautiful hotel. Well worth look even if your not staying.
Staff as with everywhere in Thailand were wonderful.
The hotel is not far from the shopping areas and close to the BTS.
Everything that you expect of 5 star.

W hotel is the trendiest modern hotel that I have stayed at. The rooms are chic and have quality furnishings and toiletries. The controls for the lights and AC were on a tablet next to the bed which was quite unique.

The breakfast spread was very good and of high quality. I enjoyed my stay and will definitely return.
