Centre Point Sukhumvit Thong Lo
Ranked #329 of 887 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2009

My trip was part business, part personal, part vacation. As I was traveling with my wife and infant son and we were going to be in the Bangkok area for quite some time, I wanted something more than a traditional hotel room. After searching and comparing hotels online as well as talking to friends, we settled on the Centre Point chain of serviced apartments/hotels and chose the Thong Lo location: good neighborhood/location (if a bit trendy) and close to where I would need to be to conduct the business I had there.

We stayed in one of the larger 1 BR style apartments and it was very large indeed. The bathroom was huge and elegantly decorated. The bedroom was very large with a nice large flatscreen TV and DVD player. We had a full kitchen with utensils and cooking gear as well as a washing machine. A small 4-person table with all the settings complimented the main living/dining room which had it's own TV and DVD player as well as basic stereo system. Both the bedroom and living/dining room had their own balconies.

As these are serviced apartments, the style, layout, etc. is more of an upscale furnished apartment than a hotel room. The nice thing for us was the ability to wash our clothes, as we were in Thailand for quite some time, and it was very nice to have a full kitchen at our disposal. Sometimes, with the baby, we just wanted to be able to conveniently fix baby food and eat in the apartment, so it was very nice to have the kitchen and dining table available. It also came in handy when we had some guests over. My memory is hazy, but I believe they came in every other day to change sheets and towels and what not.

As for convenience, the Thong Lo area has everything you need within walking distance in terms of groceries, restaurants, etc. but was a very long walk to the nearest BTS Skytrain station. The hotel ran a tuk-tuk service to and from the Skytrain, but it was not always conveniently available. Our reservations included daily breakfast in their restaurant across the street which was quite good and featured a good mix of Western and Asian style breakfast fare. Cable news monitors hung in a couple different areas around the restaurant.

The one thing to prepare for, which we weren't, was the deposit you have to pay for all the kitchen and apartment utensils. The reservation agency we went through didn't describe this so we were caught off guard. You get the deposit back upon checkout after they have confirmed you haven't damaged or stolen anything, but it would have been nice to know this up front.

We recommend this hotel often to friends who are looking for a convenient long-term stay hotel or those traveling with babies or young children. You never realize how convenient it is to have a kitchen and clothes washer until you have a small pile of soiled baby clothes and are trying to prepare baby food or formula in a standard hotel room.

I was somewhat torn between 3* & 4* and would likely give the property 3.5*. First & foremost, the best way to book is to go to the Centre Point web site (there are a number of other properties located throughout Bangkok) and look at the curent promotions. My wife who was already in Bangkok stopped by the hotel and they quoted her a rate of $468 per night for a 2-bed room, not including the service charge (as they refer to in Thailand as ++). I went to the web site and by taking advantage of a current promotion received an all inclusive rate of less than $200 per night (service charge, daily breakfast for 4-people and 4-1 hour certificates for a Thai massage or foot massage) for 5-nights. A material difference!
For those that are not familar with the Thong Lo area (AKA Thonglor, AKA Soi 55/Sukhumvit ) it is located one BTS stop (AKA Sky Train) past the Emporium (Shopping Complex) stop. It is an area where many upper middle class live, as well as, home to a number of the better stand alone restaurants in Bangkok.
The Centre Point is located adjacent to sub soi 9, which makes it not very walkable from the BTS stop. Note that this property is service apartment with both long stay and short stay residents and seems to be popular with both Asians and Westerners. There is a swimming pool and fitness area that are located accross from the property and are connected by a 2nd floor walkway. The pool is nice with a consistent depth throughout (most can stand). One nice touch is that the pool area offered flotation vest for kids. The fitness area (while I didn't personally make use of) appears to be adequate. The major downside is that due to a large construction project next door that there is virtually no privacy and the construction workers are constantly looking over at the pool.
The rooms themselves are large but are a bit dated and in what seems to be typical of many service apartments in Bangkok, the space is not utilized well and there are open gaps of space that are simply not functional. There is a small kitchen (cook top/refrig, etc.) and what could be a nice touch (if you are a smoker and don't mind the heat, a large balcony with tables/chairs). There were a numbr of issues with our room: DVD player did not work in the master bedroom, air condition was not initially working in the 2nd bed room and most annoying the key cards were constantly not functioning, which involved multiple trips to the lobby. My wife finally called and gave the Assistant Manager the equivilant of a balling out in Thai, which prompted 4-people to come to the room and attempt to resolve the problem. However, there were still some cards that worked and some that didn't. Overall, the property seems to be somewhat dated and is not quite up to the same level as some of the newer service apartments. There is a restaurant that is located accross from the property (same building as the pool/fitness center) that offers room service and where breakfast is served. The breakfast itself is above average/good and even if one had to pay the price of 8$ is a bargain.

In summary, I don't think that I would reccomend the Thong Lo area for a first timer to Bangkok, however, once the Sukhumvit area gets old and one wants to stay away from the bars and outside the "Farang (Western) Ghetto" Thong Lo is a great area. The main attraction to the Centre Point was the ability to stay in a 2-bed room apartment (needed for my wife's family when they come to visit), a pool for my daughter and being located +-200-meters from my favorite restaurant (La Villa) in Bangkok. I am not sure that I would stay here again and I am excited that there are several newer service apartments under construction (including one by Ascott).

I would be more than happy to address any additional questions re: the Centre Point and/or Bangkok in general
