Grand President Bangkok Review

Bangkok Hotel Reviews


With so many choices of accommodation all over the city, it often becomes a real burden to select the perfect place to stay. Seasoned visitors tend to have their preferences but, especially for a first-time visitor, it can be quite a daunting task. One of the first factors that come into play when choosing where to stay is, of course, location. Good location ensures convenience - and that's what Grand President Executive Serviced Apartments is all about... 

It's a typical busy afternoon on Sukhumvit Road. The traffic seems to have come to a complete standstill while people on the sidewalks are either rushing home or stopping for a bite at one of Nana's many food stalls. Branching off the main road is the less hectic Soi 11, where some of the city's finest restaurants, clubs (the likes of Q Bar and Bed Supperclub), hotels, and serviced apartments are located. Halfway down the 'soi' (street), about five minutes' walk from the BTS station (Nana), stands the imposing Grand President Executive Serviced Apartments - a convenient hideaway from all the downtown commotion, yet in close proximity to the city's best shopping, dining, and entertainment venues.

The three towers

There are three towers, featuring 437 well-appointed and spacious studios and suites - ranging from one to three bedrooms. Facing each other are Towers I and II. Tower I is where all the hotel formalities such as checking in and out are conducted. The main lobby is as imposing as it gets - a large and clinical space that is strikingly lit - and manned by the kind of service-is-our-pleasure staff that is a pleasure (to deal with), indeed.

Exclusive suites like the Executive Studio, Garden Suite, Royal Suite, Grand Suite and Pavilion Suite are an ideal choice for business travellers, families, and those simply looking for a higher level of comfort and convenience. Diagonally located opposite these towers, Tower III offers a more compact alternative, perfect for leisure travellers and couples, with a selection of the Jade Studio, Topaz Studio, Pearl Suite and Diamond Suite. Towers I and II also each feature a swimming pool on large outdoor decks, as well as fully-equipped fitness centres, sauna and steam room facilities.

A fusion of home comforts and fine hospitality

The Grand President Executive Apartments effortlessly merge homely comforts with the finest quality hospitality facilities and services. Suites and studios are meticulously decorated and fitted out with an emphasis on taste and functionality. The spaciousness of the recently-refurbished Royal Suite in Tower II impresses with is stylish living room. An alcove provides for a kitchenette, fully equipped with a microwave oven, hot plate, cooking and eating utensils, a full-size refrigerator and washing machine - basically all the things that make life a lot easier.

Most impressive too is the entertainment system which includes a 32" LCD TV, complete with over 30 cable channels, a DVD player, mini home theatre, in-house movies, and a snug leather settee to match. Busy executives will love the work desk at the far end of the room with a direct-line cordless phone and WIFI Internet access. As if this wasn't enough, The Grand President Executive Apartments also offer a full-function Business Centre and meeting rooms for keeping up with all your business affairs.

The Grand President's on-site convenience store is another great feature, and stocks everything from everyday essentials to local and international newspapers, as well as drinks and snacks.


Dining delights under one roof

Treat yourself to a variety of culinary offerings from the Grand President's very own Caf- 11, where delicious local and international dishes are served. One of the highlights of my stay at the Grand President has to be the full-on breakfast buffet. Thai favourites such as 'khao tom' (boiled rice soup) and 'khao pad' (fried rice) are on offer alongside Western mainstays like French toast, sausages, bacon and fried egg. Lovers of Japanese food are well catered for at Uzuki, located on the ground floor of Tower II. Also worth a try is the Old German Beerhouse in Tower III.

A place called 'home'

Whether you're staying in Bangkok only for a night or for months, the Grand President Executive Serviced Apartments offer an unmatched level of comfort and convenience right in the heart of the city. With a BTS station only a stone's throw away, Bangkok's most efficient public transport network is ready to whisk you to all of the city's major attractions. Helpful staff, some of whom speak Hindi and Japanese, are willing to go the extra mile to ensure your every need is met. It's better than an apartment, but more than a hotel... Definitely a place you can call 'home'.
