Novotel Bangkok Platinum – The best place to stay for serious wholesale shoppers!

By Wilbur Suen

Novotel Bangkok Platinum needs no introduction for frequent travelers to Bangkok, especially shoppers. In fact, this is the best choice if you need to shop a lot at Platinum Fashion Mall and don’t wish to travel far, lugging your packages around.

Novotel Bangkok Platinum is located right beside Platinum Fashion Mall (connected via the new wing). Being located in a very busy district, it makes sense to locate the lobby right on the 6th floor instead of the first floor.

There you have, a quiet lobby for guests. If it was located on the first floor, you would definitely expect lots of crowd and mess.

The “Executive” guests get to check-in at the priority desk, in comfort. This time, I was hosted by Novotel Bangkok Platinum and with that, I would have visited all major 4 and 5-star hotels in Pratunam.

Here’s your welcome drink and towel. I was in fact fascinated by the cup as the bottom of the cup was not flat, making the cup move around without actually toppling over.

Rooms

There are 288 rooms with 5 room types for you to choose from. The most popular room type here would have to be the Standard and Superior Rooms. Needless to say, Singapore remains the top customer base for this hotel because Singaporeans just love shopping at Platinum Fashion Mall and staying here brings so much convenience.

Upon entering my Superior Room, I was greeted with this!

Awww, I’m in fact very touched by this nice surprise. In fact, the carving was so detailed and accurate! Thanks to the Executive Chef and team at Novotel Bangkok Platinum for this surprise which I will remember deeply in my heart.

Alright, back to proper business.

Superior Room

The design language at Novotel needs no further introduction as it’s very similar among the Novotel brands but it’s also the consistency which attracts customers back.

The superior room comes with a lounge sofa and you can just lie down there to enjoy the beautiful views of Ratchaprasong.

Comfortable beds and pillows are standard and of course, I surely had a good sleep on this bed. In fact, I have lots of difficulties keeping myself awake when I’m on the bed, even when getting my work done.

See through bathroom? No worries, you can always bring the blinds down.

The toiletries are now standard across all Novotel branded hotels.

Breakfast @ The Square

Staying at Novotel Platinum, you don’t have to worry about breakfast because the spread is huge! You get an international spread but you must also not miss out their popular Roast Duck!

Other than breakfast, The Square at Novotel Platinum is also very popular for their buffet spread. I recently had a chance to try their “Crab Feast”. Check out our feast here:

Crab! If you love crabs, here’s where and how you can have it at half the price! Book “Crab 4 You” Friday-Saturday…

Facilities

Swimming Pool

novotelplatinum-swimmingpool

The only hotel in Pratunam which offers an infinity pool. Even though it’s not very big, but it’s decent enough for a simple swim and of course, for you to take some photos against the nice backdrop of Ratchaprasong.

Gym

The gym here is popular with locals too due to its location. While exercising, you get to see the busy district in action.

So here’s the view of Ratchaprasong in the day!

Night time offers a nicer view, right?

There’s a new bar which you need to check out – Bar 9 Beer Garden.

The rooftop bar might not be big but if offers you a nice view. Good enough if you are staying here as a guest.

If you are looking for a 4-star hotel to stay in Pratunam, this is one of the best choices if you are intending to do lots of shopping. You won’t go wrong!
