The result is a range of good-quality and affordable hotels all over the country. We want to introduce the 5 hotels in Bangkok to you and show you, how they can serve all your different and special needs.
If you are in the nations capital only for a short time, a business- trip or otherwise on a budget, try the FX Makkasan. This hotel is the "low budget"- option of the chain. Conveniently located at the airport- link and only a few walking- minutes from the underground MRT- station at Petchburi Road, all of Bangkok is within easy reach. The hotels rooms are small but modern styled and equipped with all amenities, you would expect of a modern city- hotel.
Facts: 78 standard (21 sqm)- and superior rooms (24sqm). All rooms offer internet- connection, telephone, safe TV, aircon, minibar- fridge and a bathroom with toilet and shower. The hotel also offers car rental, a restaurant, laundry service and an additional internet- corner.
Also ideal for business, but nonetheless recommended for a holiday- stopover is the Furama Xclusive Sathorn. Located in a quiet street, it is approximately a 3 minutes walk to the Skytrain station at Chong Nonsi, from where you take a 10 minutes ride to the shopping- temples of the city around Siam Square. Silom- or Sathorn Road are within easy walking distance and the nightlife- area of Patpong is a mere 10 minutes away. The rooms are spacious (starting form 32 sqm) and modern in design. It may not be a major point of interest, but the pool is also very neat and nice. Facts: 139 rooms are divided into 3 categories (Deluxe, Premier and Suite). The basic amenities in each room are aircon, water- cooker, telephone, safe, minibar- fridge, shower and TV. The hotel offers a restaurant, swimming- pool, gymn and sauna and a small garden.
Furama BangkokEverything is a little smaller at the Furama Xclusive Sukhumvit- but the hotel in itself still is great! Located in the rather quiet Soi 1, a short 10 minutes walk takes you to the BTS- station at Ploenchit. The main Sukhumvit Road with bars, pubs, restaurants and shops is even closer. The rooms are cozy and stiled in a mix of modern design and sweet- kitsch. We recommend this hotel for holiday- makers and business- people alike. You simply can't do wrong. Facts: 98 rooms are divided into two categories: Deluxe and Premier. Roomsize is 35 sqm and up. Basic amenities are aircon, minibar- fridge, telephone, shower, TV, safe, water-cooker and a daily newspaper. There is a small restaurant, a small gymn with sauna and a mini- outdoor pool available. Both, the Furama Xclusive Sathorn and the Furama Xclusive Sukhumvit have rooms with fully equipped kitchenettes on offer. If you are planning a long- stay, this is a good alternative.
So far the most popular of the Furama- "fleet" is the Furama Xclusive Asok. No wonder: the location is ideal, only a few walking minutes from the BTS- station Asok and the MRT- station Sukhumvit, the hotel is the ideal "base- camp" to explore Bangkok. The lively Sukhumvit Road, with entertainment and shopping possibilities is literally "just around the corner". With this hotel, Furama displayed an enormous amount of creativity: the original building was housing a bank. For that matter, the structure would not support a fully- grown pool on the roof. Furama's solution: two huge jacuzzi- tubs for relaxing pleasure. Facts: 102 modern styled rooms in three categories: Deluxe, Premier and Suites. 32 sqm is the smallest roomsize, with amenities such as aircon, water- cooker, newspaper, telephone, minibar- fridge, safe, TV, bathtub and hairdryer as basic supplies. The hotel offers a restaurant, a pool- bar, a gym, a sauna and the already mentioned jacuzzi- pools.
The newest and the flagship of the chain is the Furama Silom. The Former Tower Inn Hotel received a complete facelift and returned as a proper 3,5/4- star property. Directly on Silom Road you have easy access to shopping, dining and entertainment. Besides the modern and stylish designed rooms, a big plus is the hip and trendy pool- terrace on the rooftop.
All 251 rooms are divided into 3 categories: Superior, Deluxe and 2 Executive- options (Club & Suite). Facts: The lead- in category is a spacious 40sqm and basic- amenities include aircon, watercooker, safe, TV, telephone, shower, minibar- fridge and hairdryer.
Besides the mentioned pool- terrace, the hotel offers a gym with sauna and a very nice restaurant with good value- for- money- food.
