This was my third experience at Wendy House in Bangkok and am very glad to report that Wendy House has only improved over the years in terms of comfort and homeliness and built upon what it has offered to its guests over the past years.
ROOM and WENDY HOUSE
I will strongly recommend this for travellers who are looking for a safe homely stay in Bangkok - either for work or for tourism. Wendy House has rules that make sure it continues to be a safe, healthy, clean and homely place for its guests. Cleanliness needs a special mention and so does the way its entire team goes an extra personal step ahead to help us out. Jintama, Ewa, Wendy, and all the rest are absolutely amazing in helping their guests and making stay as comfortable as possible.
Rooms are neat, clean, big enough and equipped with TV, fridge, two bottles of drinking water (and guests can fill bottles as much as they like from the reception area), electric kettle for tea/ coffee/ soup, some cups, glasses, bottle openers, hair dryers, dressing table, some rooms have a chair and desk to work from, and a comfortable bed. Air-conditioning is great as Bangkok can be hot and humid. The bathroom is so clean and comes with soap and shampoo supplies, towel clean and comfy too. Smoking is not allowed in entire campus of Wendy House so that guests can enjoy fresh clean air to breathe.
Breakfast is very good - homely too. Homemade yoghurt, great strong coffee, tea, fresh seasonal fruits, bread, buns, croissants, two farm eggs made to order (omelette, scrambled, fried, boiled, semi-boiled, poached etc) or Thai noodle soups, yummy muffins, museli, fruit juice, etc... the breakfast area is really warm and Wendy House team makes you feel so warm and taken care of while you begin your day with great meal. There are three tables outside in the shade where guests who wish to smoke can sit and enjoy their breakfast.
Internet: The entire campus of Wendy House has wifi - and reception area has two computers where guests can access internet free of cost. Wifi speed is really good and one of the big reasons why I could work out of Wendy House so well.
Wendy House also has daily English newspapers, phone booth, a GREAT WELL STOCKED LIBRARY (trust me, you will be amazed) with travel books on Thailand and other countries too!
Wendy House supports Child Safe network - so you will find lot of information that we all should follow to make this world a safe place for our children. Huge respect for Wendy House to make this commitment.
Umbrellas are there too in the reception in case rain shower hits Bangkok and guests want to move out. Please ask for one.
The massage place right outside of Wendy House is great and offers 10% discount if we show the Wendy House room key. So do remember to carry your room key if you wish to enjoy massage here.
LOCATION: As many guests have mentioned and I wrote in my earlier review of this property, location is really good. From airport, one can take the train to Phaya Thai, then hop on to skytrain BTS to Siam (two stations ahead), and then to National Stadium station (next station after Siam). Wendy House is hardly 100-150 metres walking distance from National Stadium exit 1 or 3. It is also close (100-150 m) from Bus station, river taxi, and meter taxi is right outside the door! just ask for it. Also the main shopping malls etc (with food courts, cinema, etc) are also 150 metres - MBK Mall, Siam Discovery, Siam Centre, Siam Paragon, Centra World, etc.. and Panthip Plaza is also in the vicinity (Panthip is 'the' place for electronics).
What amazes me is how an all women enterprise can do so well - and feeling of ownership and commitment can breathe a new life to our experience at this place. Not just the lady Wendy who leads Wendy House but every other Wendy House team member such as Jintama, Ewa, and others whose names I am not aware of, are so spirited, smiling and helpful - this is surely not plastic and is a genuine attempt to make our stay as comfortable, warm and safe as possible. All the best to Wendy!
