Furama Bangkok



The Furama Group has been very active in Thailand in recent years. They bought hotels, refurbished and renovated or went into other facilities and turned them into new hotels.

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.
