Cabochon Hotel & Residence is a 5 star boutique hotel located along Sukhumvit Road, Soi 45. Despite being located at the busy Sukhumvit Road, Cabochon is tucked right at the end of the short Soi, making this place very private and quiet.

Cabochon Hotel seeks to recapture the Shanghai chic of yesteryear in Bangkok. The Walpole Building may look like a old heritage building, but in actual fact, it is a brand new building conceptualized to recreate the Shanghai chic of the 1920s.

Entering the suite, it surely brings your back to the yesteryears with the wooden floorings and decorations. I must applaud the staffs for the attention of details here and everything is just so Neat and Tidy!

The toilet is well hidden beside the wardrobe and I had difficulty finding it the first time. I went around the suite and just couldn’t find the toilet.

Even the toilet is recreated to be colonial.

After enjoying your room, time to head on out to explore the facilities provided by Cabochon.

= Conclusion

I like the private experience here and that if provides you the feel of yesteryears with the “new” furnishings. If you want some peace and want a whole new experience, this is a place you may want to consider. A must visit is the rooftop swimming pool!
