Fraser Suites Urbana Sathorn Review

ฺBangkok Hotel Reviews


One of Bangkok’s newest additions to the luxury serviced apartment scene – this property is an exercise in convenient and functional inner-city living. Situated on one of Bangkok’s most affluent streets – Sathorn – the main business district teems with gleaming skyscrapers and five-star hotels. Fraser Suites Sathorn is just one of many in this Singaporean chain that excels in providing the savvy traveller with a well facilitated environment when away from home.

What’s it like

It is difficult not to be impressed upon walking into the ultra chic, art-deco lobby of the building. Soaring palm trees add to the air of exoticism, while shiny marble floors and intricate wall displays create a distinguished ambience. Attentive staff members ensure a smooth check in and the apartment at first glance appears twice as big as it really is due to a well-placed mirror.

Equally impressive are both the generous balcony with spectacular views of sprawling Bangkok and the swimming pool – unique in both design and size. The beauty of the Fraser Suites is in the fact that they do not neglect the small attention to details such as light and balance of colour, ultimately giving the suites a warmer ambience. The overriding interior is warm and contemporary with bold furnishings including rugs, curtains, art pieces and ornaments.

Where is it?

A ten-minute walk from the bright lights of Patpong and Silom Road, the apartments offer direct access to the business district in which they reside. Just five minutes up the road is the atmospheric Suan Lum Night Bazaar where unique handicrafts, furniture and clothes are plentiful. Below, the sprawling flora of Lumpini Park is something of a rarity in the concrete jungle that is Bangkok and the park is a great place to take an early morning jog.

Lumpini MRT station is also a brief walk up the road, while Sala Daeng BTS is easily accessed from the apartment block. Guests have the perfect balance between relaxation and recreation with this central location just moments drive from vibrant Patpong and Silom Road.

What are the Rooms like?

The rooms are the highlight of the property and upon entering you are instantly struck by the homey atmosphere, in part due to the rich furnishing and interiors which comprise Asian and western features, creating a contemporary setting. At once spacious and functional, the television area is alongside a comfortable seating and dining space. A fully-equipped kitchen features a washer-dryer with space and facilities to prepare a home-cooked feast.

Featuring eight styles of apartment in total, guests can choose their accommodation in accordance to the length of their stay or the number of people set to join them. The three-bedroom Penthouse enjoys a spectacular view of Bangkok.  All apartments come with an array of first-class amenities and modern technology to ensure the comfort and convenience of guests. Even small details such as washing machine detergent are inclusive.


Restaurants and Bars

All guests receive complimentary breakfasts with their stay. The hotel restaurant is modest in size but features an al fresco area where morning coffee or evening cocktails can be enjoyed on cushioned seating. The restaurant also encompasses the bar and is an intimate affair where pre-dinner drinks can be enjoyed before sitting down to experience the delectable international and Asian fare on the menu.

Leisure Facilities

These Fraser Suites do not miss a beat with regards to their leisure facilities. An indoor basketball and badminton court, fully-equipped fitness centre, Kids' Club and a kid’s swimming pool all feature. The cutting-edge rooftop pool has been designed to appear as if it cascades off the building and is spacious with comfortable sunbathing loungers while Bangkok's panoramic skyline offers added charm to the midday sunshine.

Business Facilities

The Fraser Suites excel in providing first-class business facilities to accommodate the high percentage of executives that frequent the property. Built with this clientele in mind, the serviced apartments feature fully equipped and extensive business and conference facilities while cocktail and corporate parties are also well catered for.  The facilities within the business centre are complimentary to all guests and these include a 'de-stress zone' – The Retreat – which features massage and foot reflexology machines.

The Verdict

This is an excellent choice for business and leisure travellers who have become accustomed to a high degree of service, facilities and design – for all three the Fraser Suites Sathorn scores highly. The gracious and efficient service is complemented by tasteful interiors that exude quality and style. The contemporary design of the hotel's exterior and immediate interior is nicely contrasted by the homely apartment décor, featuring rich furnishings and an eclectic colour range. With facilities to rival any of Bangkok’s trendy fitness centres, these serviced apartments fit the bill nicely.
