Noises, crowds, non-stop activity… Staying in Bangkok can be overwhelming. In the Thai capital chaos, the Oriental Residence Bangkok felt like an oasis of serenity and sophistication. Providing world-class service, located around embassies and top shopping malls, it is a must for business traveler and family holidays.
The Oriental Residence keeps home characteristics in every accommodation. The Grand Deluxe room is elegant and highly functional, in white and grey tones with generous sized bed. Being on Wireless Road, the view over surrounding buildings is, of course, majestic.
Although not the biggest, bedroom and dining area are well separated. The fully equipped kitchen is a meaningful addition to the Grand Deluxe room and a big pro for homesick long-time travellers or families looking for a night-in. Wider than expected, the walk-in closet and bathroom are spotless even though a bit impersonal.
The calming atmosphere, versatility of these rooms in addition of a 24h high standard service are a genuine luxury.
There is quite a few dining options for customers : Cafe Claire a gourmet and casual restaurant, The Play Deck a poolside bar with elaborate snacks, Savelberg Thailand a contemporary one-starred restaurant and the Oriental Bar perfect for a few drinks pre or post feast.
The Oriental Residence is located near embassies and government offices. Nothing like cramped alleyways of Sukhumvit, Wireless Road is wide and very clean. You can go shopping within walking distance to Central Embassy or Central Chidlom shopping malls. Lumpini Park, situated less than one kilometer away is a nice outing option.
The Oriental Residence cater perfectly for long and short term residents : bars, good quality WiFi, fitness center, parking, pool and so on. They even have rooms available for special functions and can double up as wedding or business venue.
