- Asia, Bangkok, Thailand
Travelers are spoiled for choice when it comes to hotels in Bangkok. The Thai capital has a plethora of accommodation options ranging from opulent grande dames to small, chic boutique properties. But for travelers looking for a convenient, affordable option, Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit is the place to be. Situated in the heart of Bangkok, this well-appointed property boasts 222 guestrooms and suites and a location that can’t be beat. And while it offers a range of amenities – from dining options to concierge services – its comparatively bare-bones operation allows guests to feel like they’re staying in a friend’s apartment. So next time you’re heading to the City of Angels, here are five reasons you may want to consider checking into Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit.
The Independence Factor
Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit is ideal for independent travelers who want a comfortable, convenient place to stay. The hotel offers all the necessary amenities and services without the hand-holding and constant attention that come with bigger, full-service hotels. During the efficient check-in service, you’ll get all the information you need to make your stay comfortable. But after showing you to your room, the team will largely leave you to your own devices. Needless to say, this is a blessing for seasoned travelers who prefer to do things on their own. But of course, for those that do need a little assistance, the hotel also has a 24/7 Gallery Host service. This knowledgeable, well-trained team can assist with any request.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a local hotel with a better location than Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit. Tucked away on Sukhumvit Soi 24, the hotel offers easy access to EmDistrict. This collection of malls offers a wealth of dining, shopping, and entertainment options that’ll take you days to get through. But if you want to explore further afield, you’ll also have access to the Phrom Phong BTS station. This skytrain will put you within easy reach of all the city’s best sightseeing, including Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Arun, and the Grand Palace, as well as entertainment districts like Thonglor, Silom, and Soi 11.
Convenience is at the heart of almost everything at Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit. An extensive breakfast buffet is served on the third floor Gallery Kitchen until 1030am every morning. But for guests looking for a feed at any other time of day, the 24/7 Gallery Market in the lobby offers a range of grab-and-go snacks, sandwiches, pastries, sweets, and drinks that can be charged to the room. For guests needing to do some on-the-go planning, the Gallery also has free public computers offering remote printing.In the spacious guestrooms, “Cozy Corners” provide a great space to relax or work in total comfort. Similarly, the “Odds & Ends” menu has an array of use amenities that guests can request.
Perched on the hotel’s 29th floor, Aire Bar is a Chicago-inspired rooftop bar. Here, guests can enjoy craft cocktails, bar bites, and sweeping views of the Bangkok skyline. The drinks menu offers a range of signature cocktails, along with a list of beers, wines, and spirits. Pair your tipple with a selection from the food menu, where you’ll find a generous selection of local and western snacks. This is low-key one of the best places to catch the sunset, so make sure you get here early to nab a table.
The Wellness Focus
Wellness is a key element of any stay at Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit. Guests won’t have any problems keeping up with their fitness routines or eating well here. Work up a sweat in the 24/7 gym that features all the necessary cardio and strength equipment. Afterwards, head to the rooftop pool to cool off with a few laps (and perhaps work on your tan). Start your mornings with healthy breakfast options at The Kitchen that’ll keep you going throughout the day. And by night, get a good night’s rest in rooms that include blackout drapes and Hyatt Luxury Pillowtop Matresses by Sealy.
