Writes about Novotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 20, the newest addition to AccorHotels network in Bangkok

We recently visited Bangkok, Thailand and are happy that we chose Novotel for our stay in the heart of the city. Standing 26 floors tall in the heart of Sukhumvit’s business and entertainment district, the hotel boasts the new face of Novotel brand across the world.

The hotel’s modern design concept  incorporates chic flare of Thainess into all of its elements, not to mention being one of the most environmentally friendly designed hotels in Bangkok. Along with the hotel’s full-service facilities, Novotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 20 is a stylish choice for all discerning travelers. Entering the hotel, guests will definitely feel the sense of arrival into Bangkok from its interior design, art pieces, room and restaurant decoration which is guaranteed to impress. This refreshing interior design reflects the local flare into the overall modern feel of the hotel.

First Impression

As we stepped out of our cab, there were smiling faces around to receive us. The staff greeted us warmly and directed us to the lounge. It was a very pleasant gesture. The check-in process was very smooth and highly professional. The stylishly designed gourmet bar at the lounge is definitely a beautiful place to hangout. Upon downloading the Accor Hotels app, a welcome will be offered at any counter of your choice –  The infinity pool bar or the gourmet bar. As we checked into our room on the 19th floor, the eye-catchy view of the lively city held us captive. The window couch was a perfect place to keep watching the dinosaur park, the giant wheel, the sky train track, and the shiny tall buildings all around for a long long time. As we headed out to explore the places around, the staff helped us with the routes. The shuttle service provided to the nearby BTS station was really helpful.
