The Berkeley Hotel is a new 4 Star Hotel in Pratunam. It is located diagonally across Platinum Fashion Mall, making it one of the preferred hotels for those who love to shop at Platinum. This hotel is huge with a capacity of 800 rooms!
Berkeley guarantees “A Touch of Elegance”. From the design, it indeed looks luxurious, which is a combination of Thai and European design.
The high ceilings makes the lobby look very grand.
Sufficient seats for your family members to sit while waiting for check-in to be done.
There are 2 towers in Berkeley. The main tower houses the Luxury Rooms which offers a better view of Central World area and has an “open concept” bathroom. The north tower houses the Premier Rooms which has the same facilities as Luxury Rooms, but a “normal concept” bathroom and a normal window view. In both towers, they have King/Twin Rooms and Corner Suite/Family Rooms.
I stayed in the Luxury Corner Suite which offers a panoramic view of Central World area, excellent especially if you want to watch fireworks during special occasions.
This is a very big room and especially suitable for families.
A working desk.
The “open concept” bathroom. For couples, you may opt to leave it open, but for families, I’m sure you would leave it closed.
You will be glad to know that this room comes with bathtub.
There is rain shower too!
Mini Bar area.
This is the panoramic view you get in this room.
If you want to save money since you are always out shopping and just back for sleeping only, you can opt for the Premier Rooms.
The “normal concept” bathrooms.
Lounge: You can hang out at the lounge area during the daytime and have some High Tea.
The wide selection of high tea snacks.
Dining Room: This is the very spacious dining room where you have your breakfast.
A new hotel located in the heart of Pratunam. Convenient access to shopping malls and markets.
The hotel seems luxurious but the workmanship of the rooms could be improved. Fixtures and fittings are all movable, not placed properly, making it less luxurious.
If you are looking for big rooms with full facilities, you will like this hotel. But if luxury is your thing, it might not be up to standard. Still, a good choice for families and if you are doing most of your shopping in Pratunam.
