Cubic Pratunam Hotel is a modern 3-star hotel with 50 rooms + 44 dorms (hostel) located in the heart of Bangkok. We booked our accommodation through agoda.com and were quite satisfied with the experience. We chose to stay here primarily because of its close proximity to shopping areas and the commercial and entertainment district (the likes of MBK Mall, Siam Centre, Platinum Fashion Mall, Siam Paragon, Silom, and Sukhumvit). From Suvannabhumi International Airport, it took us about 40 minutes to arrive by BTS Airport Link (high-speed train). The closest station is Phayathai Station.
Review of Cubic Pratunam Hotel (Bangkok, Thailand)
Cubic Pratunam Hotel features a restaurant, a 24-hour fitness center, and a coffee shop/café. The atmosphere looks sleek and simple without grand interiors, cracking views, and the fluff of extravagance. There’s free WiFi in public areas, free self parking, and a free area shuttle. Additionally, concierge services, dry cleaning, and laundry facilities are available onsite.
The hotel is family-friendly, with a huge lounge area that’s bright and airy. Across the reception counter is a massage section. Guests can have a massage either here or in their appointed rooms. Treatments span from Thai deep tissue massage, regular whole body massage, to foot massages–all with a powerful mix of acupressure and stretching to help reduce inflammation and muscle tension.
The room looked exactly as the picture. It was clean, comfortable, and well-kept. It was spacious enough for the three of us. We got an extra bed for my sister, since this room was originally arranged with two single beds. Inside, there were conveniences like refrigerator and coffee maker, a vault, TV with cable channels, free bottled water, and a hair dryer. The bathroom was clean, which was really important to me. Complete toiletries were not provided though (only the basics like shampoo, conditioner, and shower cap), so it was a good thing that we brought our own toothbrush, toothpaste, and soap.
Cubic Pratunam Hotel is nothing close to an exquisite luxury hotel when it comes to design and style, but it has warm and professional service that we were happy about. The staff can speak and understand English, and they were nice to guide us on the best routes to go when traveling. They provided us with a map of the area with walking times and distances to the city’s major attractions.
There’s a complimentary tuktuk transfer ride from the hotel to three predetermined locations: Phayathai Station, Pratunam Market, and somewhere downtown near the shopping areas. It goes back to the hotel every 10 minutes to pick up a new batch of passengers. It’s also one call away, if you want to be fetched anywhere from the three points. This free service encourages guests to explore the neighborhood and discover street food options and sights nearby.
Mellow Cafe and Restaurant will ensure you’re full and good to go for the day. It offers a variety of food for breakfast—rice, bread with jam and butter, eggs, sausages, some local Thai dishes, soup, and drinks like coffee, tea, juices, and water. It’s also open for lunch and dinner. Operating hours are from 6:30am to 11:00pm daily.
Price for Value:
Cubic Pratunam Hotel doesn’t come with state-of-the-art amenities but we had a convenient stay. The efficient service, delicious casual food, and nice location make up a good experience in this hotel. We paid around P1500++ per night for a superior room, or around P500++ per person (when divided by three). It’s a low-budget hotel and a recommended one. Consider Cubic Pratunam when visiting Bangkok for a few days.
