Bangkok, for all its modern hustle and bustle, is a royal city with elegance, style and genteelness running through its veins. This is the city of angels, the happy city and the eternal jewel city, if Bangkok’s long name is to be the basis of judgment alone.
Why then should your accommodations while in Bangkok be any different than elegance, style and genteelness impersonated? Look to the President Palace Hotel in Bangkok for apartments that will make even the angels sing and, more realistically, make you happy with the facilities, amenities and services provided by the staff and management.
Ideally located on Bangkok’s central business district, Sukhumvit Road, the President Palace Hotel is in near proximity to every entertainment, shopping and dining establishments that matter in your stay. If you have already explored the area around the hotel, walk to the MRT station or the Nana BTS Skytrain station for rides to the other parts of the city.
After your explorations, go back to the hotel and be reminded once again why President Palace Hotel was your first choice in excellent accommodations. Its building is a remarkable sight after the drab hotels of yore in your travels – modern with Asian sensibilities, strong and yet welcoming with its glass walls, and graceful like the Thais.
Extraordinary Facilities and Amenities
Its impressive building is just the precursor to the equally impressive facilities and amenities offered by the President Palace Hotel. Let’s start with the iPad and iPod Dock, which makes for great convenience for travelers although emphasis must be made on the fact that this is only available for Club Floor bookings.
The Club Lounge located on the 16th floor is exclusively reserved for the use of the Club Floor guests as well as the guests booked in the Superior Club and Deluxe Club rooms. Many complimentary services are available for Club Floor guests including breakfast, snacks and pre-dinner cocktails, seasonal fruit basket upon arrival, unlimited in-room Internet access and laundry and ironing services.
The fitness center, however, is free to use for all in-house guests. State-of-the-art fitness equipment is complemented by a flat-screen television equipped by satellite and music channels. Swim in the swimming pool, drink cocktails from the Splash Bar and just relax inside your room in any way you desire.
The rooms are as impressive, if not more so, than the rest of the public areas and for good reasons, too. You have a choice between luxurious accommodations like the Superior Rooms and the Deluxe Rooms.
The Superior Rooms boast of a large living area with a work table and desk lamp, 32-inch LCD flat screen television, and luxurious leather sofa. Other amenities include Wi-Fi access, alarm clock/radio, minibar and electronic safe box. Did we mention that each room has magnificent views of Bangkok’s skyline?
The bathroom is luxurious as well, thanks to the modern facilities including the bathtub and shower area complete with the toiletries sink. The beds, which are either king-size or twins, are as comfortable as can be expected from such a top-rate hotel.
As cliché as it may sound, the President Palace Hotel will make you feel like the president – or any royal, for that matter – for a reasonable price.
