Novotel Bangkok Platinum Hotel

Enjoy a brand new experience by staying at the Novotel Bangkok Platinum Hotel. The hotel, which has opened just four months ago, has the look and feel of an international world class hotel which is not surprising considering that it is operated by the world famous Novotel group.

Located on top of the Platinum Mall, Novotel Bangkok Platinum Hotel is easily accessible from the airport and is located conveniently near the shopping district – 10 minutes walk from Siam Square, Siam Paragon and BTS stations.The location of the hotel in the hub of Bangkok’s fashion center is indeed a tourists’ delight. A superior twin room is at affordable USD91 a night.

What I like about Novotel Bangkok Platinum Hotel

The staff is polite and courteous and the rooms are airy and comfortable. There is a priority check in desk for Accor Club members and for international travelers who frequent Novotel hotels worldwide this is indeed a welcome feature among hotels in Bangkok.

The prices are attractive and for USD91 one can get a superior double room for a couple. The breakfast has items for all palates and this is definitely something that is in favor of the hotel. Plus, the convenient location of the hotel near Central World and the Platinum mall meant that we could get our shopping done without having to venture too far into the city.

What I dislike about Novotel Bangkok Platinum Hotel

The hotel just having opened a few months ago is yet to operate smoothly and this shows in the ways in which the front desk staff and the other staff operate. For instance, when we checked in, we were taken to the room by the front desk staff, but the guests in the room were still there who were yet to check out.

Further, we asked for two bottles of mineral water which took a day to materialize in our room. These are a couple of things that I wanted to highlight to show that the staff is yet to come to grips with their duties. The point is that if you are willing to overlook these aspects, then the hotel is indeed worth the stay.

How to get to Novotel Bangkok Platinum Hotel

The hotel is easily accessible from the airport and there is a taxi service that you can avail of to get there. Since public transportation in Bangkok is nothing much to write home about, taking a cab (shared or exclusive) is the best option. Being close to the fashion district and the Platinum Mall, the Novotel Platinum is ideal for business travelers and tourists who are in Bangkok for a short stay.
