The Fusion Suites is the 2nd Hotel that we stayed during our last trip to Bangkok.  In terms of location, Pullman is situated in a less touristy area.  The Fusion Suites is situated at Sukhumvit area.  If you don’t already know, Sukhumvit is the place where is pretty touristy, if you ask me. You get to see (a lot) of tourist bringing their Thai gf around, night market, and sometimes they even bring in elephants (yes, elephants) around this area so that they can sell sugar cane to you, and you get to feed the elephant.

Back to The Fusion Suites location, make sure you download the map (from the website) cos most cab drivers will get pretty confuse with the address and the hidden signage is not helping!! LOL.

Semi-hidden signage

And The Fusion Suites building look like this!  :)

We manage to get a pretty good deal for the Standard Room.  There’s always ongoing promotion of Stay 3 nights Pay 2 nights.  The last time I check the website, the promotion is still ongoing but the rate is slightly higher.  I remember paying approximately THB1600 per night under this promotion.  :P

They have pretty nice deco! :)

And……………..CUT! cos blurdevil is checking in  :)

Simple yet nice  :)

Sitting Area outside the rooms

The room is pretty small.  You can easily knock yourself (or your leg) on the bed frame…

iPod docking station :P *canggih*

LCD TV which is literally right in front of your bed.  :P

Coffee/Tea? Or perhaps some Whiskey/Vodka?

Toilet (Small Basin Area)

Rain Shower  :)

Photos in the Toilet  :P

That’s pretty much about the room.  :) There’s no facilities (i.e. Gym, Swimming Pool, Garden etc) as The Fusion Suites is pretty much a boutique hotel as you can see.  Breakfast is provided.  No pictures cos I’m always late for breakfast.  You’ll get a decent coffee, eggs (omelet, scrambled, etc), toast, orange juice etc  :)  Not bad for the price we paid.

I realise that the hotel do have their own tuk-tuk but they didn’t really offer to drive you to the station or anywhere.  So we pretty much walk to the station.

The nearest station is Sukhumvit (MRT) or Asok (BTS).  When you come out from the hotel (hotel is at your back), turn right, walk about 30 seconds, you’ll reach a cross road, just turn right again, and walk all the way up until you see an entrance going down to Sukhumvit line (MRT).  If you’re going to BTS, take the MRT way as it is pretty much connected and you get your air-cond!  :)

Asok Station

And if you happen to pass by Times Square, hop on to the Jaspal Outlet Store.  Its very cheap!!! :)

Last Picture: blurdevil + train @ The Fusion Suites

No complaints on the service here but they are not attentive as compare to Pullman, but well this is a boutique hotel and for the price we paid, its pretty cheap, so there’s no complaint.  You can check out the Jacuzzi Deluxe room  if you want, cos I think its nicer, with view and slightly bigger room  :)

*hugs, blurdevil*


I don’t really fancy Chicken Rice, especially those steam chicken rice.  ;P  After the shopping spree, I didn’t have the strength to carry all the shopping bag to any other restaurant!  LOL.. I suggested dinner at somewhere nearby the hotel, then we saw this stall selling Chicken Rice and other Thai food.  Everyone agree almost instantly! LOL.

The Stall (sorry the picture is a bit blurry… too hungry dy!)

All the fresh ingredients  :D

The sweet lady preparing the chicken rice

Fry fry and fry away…

Chicken Rice.  The rice is like so super nice that i can eat it just like that (note: i don’t fancy steam chicken).  Must try, together with the chili (different from Malaysia version of sour sweet chili)

Minced Pork + Omelet = Heaven!  I don’t know how but their skill in frying a perfect omelet is just god-send.  Really.  I am pretty particular about my eggs, and this is the one I approve!  :) Its not over-fried and its fluffy and soft.  :)

Fried Rice.  Oh, this is equally good too.  Fried Rice the way it should be… the rice don’t stick together.  :)

Last but not least, Pad Thai.  ;) Nice too.. heheh

Hehhe.. I’m going back there again this time  :)

How to get there: Take BTS to Nana station.  Find your way to Sukhumvit Soi 11 (its easy really).  Once you reach Soi 11, turn in and you’ll see the stall on your right.  Enjoy eating!  :)  Although its a road side stall, but they serve nice, comforting food that put some restaurant to shame.  :)


 

For our quickie 3 Days 2 Nights Bangkok Escapade, we decided to put ourselves to a comfortable sleep at night in Citadines Apart’ Hotel.  There’s a few Citadines in Sukhumvit itself but we decided to go for the one in Sukhumvit Soi 11.

 

Service wise, there’s nothing much to brag about.  They aren’t really a hotel, so, you really can’t complain about the service.  And most of the time, they don’t really understand your English, although they are one of the better ones.  So I guess, not much of a complaint on that either.

 

Location wise, its pretty much how you want to look at it.  Its approximate 350m away from Nana BTS station and approximate 5-10 minutes walk, depending how fast you walk, really.  As it is situated in the Sukhumvit area, food is anything but limited.  Along Sukhumvit Soi 11 itself, there is a newly open Manchester United Bar, walk down the road, and you’ll find a Australian pub somewhere, 7-eleven is nearby too (to stock up on your Singha beer) and the infamous Bed Supperclub which is just right next to the Hotel.

 

Bed Supperclub

They have a 1-Bedroom and 2-bedroom for you to choose from and if you’re coming to Bangkok with your family, I guess the 2-bedroom will be the right choice for you.  :) Let’s check out my 1-Bedroom apart’ hotel.

The comfy Bed with fresh white linen

Iron, Ironing Board, Hanger, Safe Deposit Box right in the closet

Full Kitchen Facilities (with fridge, microwave, etc)

And i really mean the complete kitchen facilities with pots, utensils, cutlery, etc etc

Study Table and Flat LCD TV.  THe TV can be adjusted across the rail!

Hair Dryer and of course Phone  =)

The 2-seater Sofa

The Wash Area and Toilet.  I think they need to improve on their Hot Water.  It’s practically not working the whole time I’m there.  And as far as I know, I’m not the only one complaining!  :I

And check out the partition in the room (even though its small). Now you see it…

Now you don’t!  hahaha

This is where we have our breakfast every morning.  Selection was pretty bad, just like the somerset apartment we stay in Singapore.  Both are part of the Ascott Group.  Maybe its not their policy to give you a sumptuous breakfast, but a very very basic ones. So nothing to blog about the breakfast

You can choose to sun-tan at the roof top coupled with some air pollution.  Or the gym..

Or just jump into the lap pool.  Make sure you don’t clash with anyone (haha)

Or even better, grab a Hoegaarden at the bar downstairs

And check this out, I find the “symbol” of representing “powerful” from the air-cond remote in the room *farny*
