If you are those who prefer things to be similar and familiar, hotels such as Novotel will definitely work well for you. I love staying in different areas of Bangkok to find new offerings. This time, I wanted to explore the Silom area and I decided to try out Novotel Bangkok Fenix Silom Hotel.
Novotel Fenix Silom Hotel is located very close to Bangrak (Charoenkrung Road) where my favourite duck rice (Prachak Pet Yang) is located. From there, I can choose to take the BTS at Saphan Taksin station or take the Chao Phraya Express Boat.
Time to check in!
Every customer will be given a welcome drink upon arrival and guess what I’m drinking? Definitely not white wine but just apple juice.
Novotel Bangkok Fenix Silom Hotel features 216 rooms with a contemporary design, consistent with other Novotel hotels in Bangkok.
I previously stayed at Novotel Ploenchit and seeing the room just feels like I’m back to somewhere familiar where I know that I will have a comfortable sleep. The only difference is its location.
A lounge sofa and a working desk which is essential for me to work at night.
You can choose to have a see through toilet if you want. All you have to do is just to turn the switch on or off.
Did you realise that Novotel recently revamped their logo and font?
I love rain showers!
Breakfast @ The Square
Breakfast! You can be assured that the breakfast items offered here will fill your stomach.
Apart from the basic buffet offerings, you have a egg station, salad station, bread, pastries, cereal and fruits.
If you are back early from your shopping, take some time to chill out at Stone Bar on the ground floor! They have live music from 8pm every Wednesday to Saturday and I love the music that is played!
Swimming pool and gym for those who want to exercise!
If you are tired of staying in Pratunam or Sukhumvit, check out Silom area!
Here are 2 tips for you if you are staying at Novotel Bangkok Fenix Silom Hotel.
The hotel is located in between BTS Station – Surasak and Saphan Taskin and for both, a 10 minute walk is required. I prefer walking to Saphan Taksin because on the way, I can get some of Bangkok’s best eats in Bangrak area.
Don’t miss out the chance to take Chao Phraya Express boat to explore Chao Phraya River. It can bring you to places such as Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Yaowarat and much more!
