Open since 1st December 2017, Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit offers large modern rooms and sits in the dynamic Phrom Phong district of vibrant and colorful Bangkok.
It doesn’t matter whether you are looking to stay in Bangkok for business or leisure purposes, you will love its location in the prime business district with the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre close by, as well as the shopping meccas of the EmDistrict that includes the Emporium, the EmQuartier and the soon to be EmSphere for frenzied plastic card trashing. The Hyatt Place Bangkok is the perfect spot to explore the dining and cultural hot spots, as it is only a 4-minute walk to the Phrom Phong BTS SkyTrain station. With a check-in time of 3pm and check-out at 12 noon, you will have plenty of time to wallow in your luscious bed and dawdle over breakfast before you have to leave Bangkok.
Hyatt Place sits on the lower end of the spectrum of Hyatt range of brands, offering spacious rooms at reasonable prices, with little touches of comfort such as free parking for hotel guests, complimentary public computers with high-speed internet access as well as free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. There is a small gym with a couple of running machines and stationary bikes, plus an outdoor swimming pool on the 19th Floor with panoramic city views over the chaotic mass of colorful roofs. The pool is not that big, with only 4 or 5 poolside lounge chairs, so you need to get there early or be lucky of you want to grab one. Although with no poolside menu, service or shade, it is not the kind of pool you would spend all day lounging by. Probably recommended for a quick dip.
When the hunger pangs attack there will always be somewhere to satisfy your cravings. You can choose to pick up a grab-‘n’-go meal or a yummy baked goodie from the 24/7 Gallery Market. In the mornings you can have breakfast in the Gallery Kitchen where you can experience an Asian breakfast such as dim sum and noodles, or stick to your old favorites, if you are not the adventurous culinary soul. The Coffee to Cocktails Bar is where you can sip an espresso or something stronger (think chilled beer or a wine), whilst the Aire Bar on the rooftop is the place to be at sunset with a decadent bespoke cocktail in hand.
The 222 contemporary guest rooms are decked out in neutral tones with splashes of textile accents for the tactile lover. There are plush Hyatt Grand Beds and cosy corner sofas plus a separate workspace for those that need to tap on a few keys on a laptop whilst gawking at sweeping city views. The luxurious suites have separate living areas, so that you can really spread out in decadence. There are also plenty of power plugs to charge your devices during your stay.
One thing that I didn’t like about this hotel was the toiletries. Very small portions of shampoo and conditioner and not replenished every day. It is the small things that count and I think if they had been more generous with the toiletries, it wouldn’t have felt so cheap.
For the business crowd it is possible to hold a corporate meeting, training session or small group event with minimal fuss on your part, as the Hyatt’s staff will look after every detail for you. There are 4 function spaces with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment to make your meeting a success.
