Europe’s largest hotel group, AccorHotels Asia, has an expanding network within Asia-Pacific. The group, home to big names such as Sofitel, Novotel and Ibis, is largely designed for business travel, but is also extremely family friendly (look at its family promotion below).
Largely standard rooms and service, AccorHotels generally receives modest reviews from its guests. However, one of its executive managers was found to have posted more than 100 reviews of its hotels, so one can’t always believe the reviews one reads!
However, having stayed at Novotel Bangkok, I can vouch for the fact that the rooms are indeed comfortable, decent and value-for-money.

For couples who want a little alone time, away from the kids, AccorHotels offers an interesting promotion: guests get 50% off the second room, provided that it is occupied by two children under 16 years old. This promotion is valid at most of its hotels and destinations; for more information, click here.
AccorHotels offers regular promotions for its hotels around the world:
– Lisbon, Portugal from $121
– Marseilles, France from $170
– Hanoi, Vietnam from $185
– London, United Kingdom from $210
– New York City, United States of America from $313
Take advantage of these promotions of up to 30% OFF when you book 30 days in advance, as they are known to disappear as fast as they appear.
Accor Hotels in Bangkok
Singaporean tourists will be glad to know that AccorHotels Asia has a diverse range of hotels in Bangkok, from luxury to boutique to business, which are comfortable and affordable.
Here are some of the popular choices:
Hotel Ibis Siam in Bangkok
With rates starting at just $70, this centrally located hotel is perfect for shoppers looking for a fuss-free place to stay.
Minutes from the National Stadium BTS station, the hotel does not compromise on amenities and each room is equipped with an LCD TV, a well-stocked bathroom. Most importantly, complimentary Wi-Fi. Pets are also allowed here, so pooches can enjoy a weekend getaway as well!
Ibis has other outlets in Bangkok – Nana, in the heart of the entertainment district, Sathorn, within the business district and Riverside, by Bangkok’s famous waterway.
Novotel Bangkok on Siam Square
For those with slightly looser pursestrings, Hotel Novotel offers a midscale accomodation, with rooms starting at $200. The four-star hotel sits amidst Bangkok’s vibrant city centre, and guests in its suites are treated to first-class views of the city lights.
However, unlike Hotel Ibis, Hotel Novotel does not offer complimentary wi-fi, which is surprising, considering it targets business customers.
The Novotel Siam Square Bangkok’s food is popular, both among guests and locals, and seats at its three restaurants often need to be booked in advance.
