Le Meridien Bangkok is our last hotel stop during our last trip to Bangkok. :) Situated at a very strategic location, which is none other than Surawong area, and a stone throw away from the famous landmark for ping pong show. :)
This is the building day
And transform by night. :)
You know what I like about the hotel. I love how the hotel gives you the modern feel and yes simple but stylish. :)
Although there’s no grand lobby to boast, but I love how the lobby looks so cool :)
Clean & Sparkling *kilat kilat*
Then we manage to check-in to our room and it looks how a Meridien hotel should be. Comforting.
Personalised Welcome Message on LCD TV and CISCO phone :)
The window with the auto-blinds that I just couldn’t stop playing with :P
Meridien supports UNICEF
And the comfy bed. SEriously you will just melt and sleep on the bed anytime! :P Its so comfy especially the pillow!
The bathtub + shower place… see the above pic.. can see how you can make the toilet an open concept?
Shampoo, conditioner, lotion, shower gel are all provided and it smell quite nice too (although i still prefer Uma Sapna’s shower gel smell :P )
Mineral Water: THey provide 4 bottles in a room :)
Or you can choose to drown yourself in the selection of alcohol *chargeable*
Or anything from the minibar *chargeable*
Oh, remember to wear the oh-so-comfy-robes while enjoying your drinks :P
You know how Hotel always throw in some complimentary welcome drink? And chances are, most of the time they sucks cos they give you some cordial drinks or some syrup-filled drinks, right? But suprisingly in Le Meridien, you get a better treatment than that. First you get to redeem the complimentary drink from the nice bar called Bamboo Chic! So you take your voucher and head on to Bamboo Chic at your convenience from 730pm – midnight (not when you are rushing to put your luggage and you gotta rush to finish your drink)
And I’m impressed with the interior once more!
Take picture first *blurry blurdevil*
Even the Toilet also very nice le
Oh, I haven’t even talk about the complimentary drink! Instead of syrup-cordial-punch-drinks, we get to choose from the menu on what we want to drink, for free la! ehhehe we got ourselves a pint of guiness and a glass of white wine. How cool is that? :)
The Spa, Fitness and Pool is situated on the 6th Floor. Nothing great to shout about but at least there’s a swimming pool, right? :)
Spa (You gotta pay for it :P)
The comfy sofa near the spa, next to the swimming pool :)
ta-da, the swim area and the comfy day bed. :P
Okie, hope you like the hotel as much as we did enjoy our stay there. The only set back was they didn’t pay special attention to our remarks when we placed our booking, in which they did apologize through email after that. Don’t get me wrong, the staff, from the receptionist to the door bell to housekeeping are very attentive and friendly. Just some minor stuff. But if you were to ask me, for the price you pay and the things you get, I guess you can consider Pullman, which is as comfortable as Meridien is. End of the day it depends on what you want. For example, if you are bringing your family to Bangkok, you might consider Pullman for Pullman is more like a resort, while Meridien is more like a hotel building due to limited space. :)
Anyway, if you are staying in Le Meridien Bangkok, you should walk around the area. Go opposite the hotel to tailor made your working clothes or suit in Excelsior (I thought they are quite good) or walk over to Patpong area to catch a ping pong show. :) THere’s a noodle cart (street food) right opposite Meridien, which I find its pretty nice (operate by a lady). Else along the street at night, there’s plenty of street food :) IF you want proper restaurant food, try out one of the Soi in Patpong, they have decent Italian restaurant there. :P
Till then, blurdevil :P
