There’s no mini travelogue for this trip like Taiwan and Hong Kong because we didn’t really plan for it. It was a last minute decision and heck…… the flight tickets costs a bomb. Lucky for us, mydaling managed to grab a good deal from Groupon for CityPoint Hotel, in the center of Bangkok. For only RM388 without breakfast, we stayed at this newly opened boutique hotel near Asok BTS or Sukhumvit MRT station, 3-5 min walks for 3 nights. It is a shoplot turned hotel, so don’t expect any view.
We were a bit skeptical at first but thank god all went well. We emailed the hotel to check for room availability before purchasing the offer. They replied a day after and everything flow smoothly then. Upon reaching the hotel, the friendly reception greeted us and the bellboy helped us with our luggage. We showed them the voucher and our passport for check-in and everything is taken care off.
The lobby and waiting area
The bellboy leads us to our room on level 4 and later sent us the wireless login username and password. Free WIFI and LAN access is provided for each room or you can use the public computer at the lobby.
Our standard room has all the basic necessities and most important, clean. The bed were comfortable and the extra soft pillows became my bolster
This hotel had just opened in April, therefore everything is pretty new. The lighting in the room is good too.
The bathroom is pretty spacious too. The shower gel provided is a Press + Wash concept and is imported from Germany (from their site)
I love rain shower but had hard time adjusting the right temperature. It either gets too hot or too cold, never warm
but other than that, overall is good… I don’t mind staying here again as it is affordable (more $$$ to shop *wink) and pretty convenient
To get there : The express train from Suvarnabhumi airport (post coming soon) to Bangkok city will stop at Phaya Thai (N2) station, an interchange station. Walk to the BTS Sukhumit Line for train to Asok (E4) station.
Price: 30baht, 6 station away.
Once you reach, look for exit 4. You can see Urban Retreat Spa (very nice, post coming soon) at the side of the exit. CityPoint Hotel is just a street behind it. There are 2 signboards that will lead you to the hotel.
