The Continent Hotel – Probably the most accessible hotel in Asoke Intersection
Updated: September 2017
The Continent Hotel is a new 5 star boutique hotel, managed by Compass Hospitality. The Continent Hotel officially opened in February 2013 and the main selling point of this hotel is its incredible location. It is located just beside the intersection of Sukhumvit and Asoke, and just less than 5 mins walk to BTS Asoke, MRT Sukhumvit and Terminal 21 Shopping Centre.
It is situated in a small enclosed area, making The Continent Hotel look very small. No worries, it’s actually a high-rise building up to the 37th floor.
Despite being small, they managed to make good use of the space with the emphasis on its decor and design, making it stylish and sophisticated.
An elegant reception with friendly staff.
Lush comfortable seats while waiting for check-in to be done.
You will be given welcome drinks too.
Time to head on up to check out the rooms!
Every single floor features a different theme of different countries. If you frequent Bangkok, perhaps try staying at a different level every time?
The Continent Hotel offers 153 guestrooms rooms which are designed in four different themes called Ocean, Forest, Desert and Space. They are categorised as Deluxe, Premier, Executive, Sky and Continent. All rooms and suites are well appointed and present a lifestyle of comfort and convenience with sophisticated in-room amenities.
When you enter the room, you will notice why it’s so dark. Hold on. Don’t complain until you open the window.
Once you open the curtains, the room will be filled with brightness!
Take a look at the view, isn’t it magnificient? This is probably one of the best view you can get from Asoke intersection. I can just lay down on my bed the whole afternoon to enjoy this view.
This is a clearer view of the whole view.
The bathroom also gives you a full-length window, but this time, perhaps it’s better to put down the blinds for privacy.
The rooms here gives you a solid feel with it’s plush room carpeting. Fixtures and fittings are well designed and arranged.
The working desk comes with an iPod Dock as well.
The bathroom is specially designed with blinds that are motorised and adjustable.
There are many dining options in The Continent Hotel and you can even choose to chill out on the rooftop bar.
If you love Italian food, you have to check out Medinii’s Free Flow Dinner at THB 999++ baht per person offering free flow (beer, wine, cocktails, soft drinks + unlimited pasta, pizza + 1 main course + 1 dessert). I don’t think you can find such a good deal elsewhere! Read more of this buffet here!
Check out Bangkok Heightz, offering delicious Thai food in a Thai inspired setting!
For breakfast, head over to Medinii to a buffet spread. The variety might not be as wide as what is provided by a five-star hotel but it is sure to fill your stomach. If you are lucky, get the window seats for the best view in town.
From 10am – 4pm, Axis & Spin and Bangkok Heightz turns into a co-working space for digital nomads to work in peace with the best view in town.
Swimming Pool & Gym
Additional facilities include innovative bars, a loft restaurant, a meeting space, a sky gym with city view and an elevated swimming pool with a nice city view.
At night, the red lamps make The Continent Hotel look very different, don’t they?
