The Athenee Bangkok

Hotel ScoreThe Athenee Bangkok,a Luxury Collection Hotel, takes the best European Art Deco style and combines it with truly dedicated service which has been the cornerstone of Le Meridien hotels around the world. The Skytrain is only a short stroll away so getting round town is easy, and with five excellent restaurants in house, meal times can’t come soon enough.

Who is it For?

Families, Couples, Business, Shoppers

Built on royal land, The Athenee takes pride of place on Wireless Road, the prestigious home of many embassies and multi-national businesses. Ploenchit BTS Skytrain station is less than 5 minutes’ walk away (even faster once you find the shortcut). All in all, it’s a great downtown location for business, shopping and sightseeing.

What’s Around?

  • Central Embassy Shopping Mall (400m)
  • Ploenchit BTS Skytrain (450m)
  • All Seasons Place (250m)
  • Lumpini Park (1.5km)

What We Like...

  • Great city centre location
  • Over-sized windows to give you a great view of Bangkok
  • Less than five minutes’ walk from the BTS skytrain at Ploenchit
  • Large pool area surrounded by greenery
  • Well-equipped gym with outdoor running track
  • Five acclaimed on-site restaurants
  • Impressive breakfast buffet with both Asian and western delicacies
  • Some of the most comfortable beds you will ever sleep in

... and What We Don’t

  • Only 60 minutes of free internet access with deluxe rooms (unless you sign up for an SPG members card) 
  • Traffic can get bad along Wireless Road during rush hour

What's the Hotel Like?

The Athenee Bangkok, A Royal Meridien Hotel, imposes its European sensibilities on guests with a grand lobby, and tasteful refined guestrooms. There’s a host of fine dining restaurants on Level 3, including our favourites The Reflexions (French) and Smooth Curry (Thai). On the fourth floor you can relax: the free form swimming pool has a Thai feel to it, surrounded by plenty of greenery and complete with its own pavilion to provide shade, plus an outdoor running track and the well-equipped fitness centre.

The Rooms (Score 4.4/5)

The deluxe rooms are a spacious 38 sqm, and if you want a great view of Bangkok request a higher floor when you check in. All rooms come with a writing desk, flat screen television and satellite channels, tea and coffee making facilities and Wi-Fi… but at a cost.
