VIE Hotel Bangkok Review

Siam - Bangkok

VIE HOTEL BANGKOK REVIEW

Making its Bangkok debut in December 2008, VIE Hotel Bangkok is the first MGallery hotel in Asia, managed by Accor. This new five-star hotel is within walking distance of the shopping epicentres of Siam and Chidlom. All guestrooms and suites feature a view of the city and are stylishly decorated and equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. VIE also features a vast range of business and leisure facilities within it's walls, making it more than just a place to rest your head.

 


What it’s like?

Designed by the architectural team of J+H Boiffils, VIE fuses Eastern charm and Western modernism and sets the bar for new and hip hotels with its exclusive urban style. Rooms at VIE are located from the 14th to the 26th floor. All rooms feature spectacular views of Bangkok from different angles. The staff is very friendly and their service is second to none. Room service takes five minutes from call to delivery.

Where is it?

VIE is superbly located in central Bangkok and is only a few steps from Ratchathewi Skytrain (BTS) station. Within walking distance are the major shopping and entertainment complexes of Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery, Siam Centre, MBK, Siam Square, Central World, Pantip Plaza, and more. The business districts of Sukhumvit, Silom, and Sathorn are only minutes away.

What are the Rooms like?

Offering 154 rooms in variety of styles and configurations including Deluxe Rooms (38 – 41sqm), One-bedroom Deluxe Suites (73 – 76sqm), Two-bedroom Duplex Suites (125 – 145sqm), and the commanding Penthouse Suites (90 – 420sqm).

I stayed in room 2403, a one-bedroom Deluxe Suite which came with a flat-screen television with cable and pay-per-view channels, broadband and wireless internet access (fee is exclusive in the rates), a complete working desk, IDD telephone, coffee and tea-making facilities, iron and ironing board, a personal electronic safety box, and a refrigerator with mini-bar.

A major amenity of the room is its attention-to-detail decoration and lavish furnishings. The room features a perfect combination of style, function, and comfort. Guests can expect a generous living area, while the luxurious bedroom offers a king-size bed adorned with VIE’s signature pillows. Also, the hotel provides nightly turndown service with bedside chocolates and tomorrow’s weather forecast.

The bathroom is spacious with bathtub and shower set separately. Also, it features double washbasins with a large wall mirror, digital bathroom scales, a hair dryer, toiletries and exclusive bath and body products by Etienne Aigner.

 

Restaurant & Bar

Located on the 11th floor, VIE Dining offers more great views over downtown Bangkok and serves an international buffet for breakfast and lunch. A la carte dining is also available until 23:30.

VIE Bar, a lobby-style bar on the ground floor offers some light snacks and a choice of refreshments such as coffee, tea, cocktails and exclusive liquor. High tea is served between 14:30 – 15:30. The bar is open until 00:30.

Only a few steps from the lobby, VIE 39 Exclusive offers two unique relaxation spots – VIE Wine and VIE Cigar. Both feature indoor and outdoor space, a fine list of wines and cocktails, with alternating cool prerecorded jazz and live music, and DJs. Open 19:00 – 02:00.

Facilities

Gym aficionados are welcome to frequent the impressive 12th Floor VIE Fit, the fitness centre. It has generous spaces that are filled with cardio and strength equipment as well as a stretching area. The changing room is modern and clean with hundreds of lockers, a relaxing area with magazines and newspapers, and a well-equipped shower room with a large Jacuzzi.

For relaxation and indulgence, VIE SPA offers a full range of body treatments and therapies. Advanced booking is highly recommended. The hotel’s rooftop pool is located at VIE 39 Exclusive, a four-story building at the entrance.

Business Facilities

Located on 12th floor, the multipurpose meeting room is perfect for seminars, conferences, conventions, and social events. It flaunts a high ceiling and is equipped with ideal meeting spaces.

The Verdict

Although the hotel does not offer free in-room internet access, guests with laptops are welcome to use the complimentary WiFi in the lobby and business centre on the 12th floor, 24/7. Besides, this ultra-modern hotel provides what today’s five-star accommodations should be: fantastic guestrooms, extensive choices of business and recreational facilities, flawless service, and convenient location. VIE Hotel Bangkok comes highly recommended.
