Conrad Bangkok

Conrad is the luxury brand of the Hilton family, and it’s easy to see they are one level ahead of the Hilton standard. Before Conrad Bangkok, I’ve been to Conrad hotels in Chicago, Bali and Singapore, and they were all up to a high quality so I checked into Conrad Bangkok with expectations of quality.

While Conrad Bangkok is a business hotel, it has something for leisure travellers as well. The facilities is top class, and the spa is great. I went to the spa for a one-hour signature massage and it was very relaxing and great.

I stayed in an Executive Terrace King Suite, and it was very nice. 71 square metres of quality. I’m 22 and still loves playing video games, so I was happy and surprised to see a Playstation 3 in the room since I’ve never seen a hotel room with that before. The suite also offered three flatscreen TVs, including one in the beautiful bathroom, living room, and of course the private terrace.

Guests in Executive Suites has access to the Executive Lounge, and it’s very nice and has a nice selection of food. Beware of the dress code before you go inside. Even though there is 35 degrees outside you can’t wear shorts in the lounge and they only inform this with small letters on a sign that most people won’t see.

The most important thing in a hotel is the service, and it’s really good and professional. Even in the best hotels in Thailand you often find staff with language problems, but in this hotel, you won’t get any problems. The check in and check out process went perfect, and I was escorted to the suite, something you won’t be in most Hilton hotels. It is the luxury brand of Hilton.

The ending of the stay was far from perfect. I called for a taxi from my suite, but I waited in front of the hotel for 7 minutes before a taxi arrived, but I got to the airport in time and arrived safely in Hanoi.

Overall I don’t think you can find a better Conrad city hotel in the world. It has everything you can wish for the business traveller regarding service and facilities. For the leisure traveller, I could want a little more personalised service. Furthermore, I like to see rooms that look different, but because it’s a Conrad there are rules regarding design they have to follow so you always know what you get from a Conrad. It’s not among the best hotels in the world, but for the price, it might be some of the best value available. Highly recommended.

My opinion: Great experience.
