We went to Bangkok last month to attend the wedding of one of my best friends. 🙂 For utmost convenience, we chose to stay in a hotel that’s closest to the church where the wedding ceremony would be held. Located just outside BTS Surasak (literally a few steps away from the station), Mode Sathorn Hotel is a four-star boutique, fashionable lifestyle hotel that looks beautiful and classy with uniquely themed rooms.
Review of Mode Sathorn Hotel (Bangkok, Thailand)
Mode Sathorn Hotel is quite an upscale and sharp-looking hotel at the heart of Bangkok’s business-heavy Sathorn neighborhood. At the lobby, the check-in desk did not seem like the usual counter, but rather worked out with a more casual and personalized reception. Guests can sit and wait for the admin to be done.
The Deluxe Room was fitted with a comfy king-size bed, clean sheets, soft lighting, sleek bathrooms sporting separate soaking tubs and showers, and nice touches like toiletries, bathrobes, and slippers. Rendered in reserved neutrals, the walls, decors, and furnishings make an unabashedly luxe and modern statement with a strict color palette of black, white, and gray which helped maintain a cohesive feeling.
There’s a lot of people online raving about Mode Sathorn Hotel’s 360-degree rooftop bar and its infinity pool. We went to the topmost floor to see the rooftop for ourselves. It’s entirely open-sky and the feeling of being high up in the air seemed real and impressive. You can walk around the entire circumference of the tower and discover a superb 360 view of this part of Bangkok. The bar provides a loungy setting for cocktails and simple plates to share. Some other highlights include a 24-hour gym that’s well-equipped, full-service spa, and two restaurants serving European and international cuisines.
Our package included complimentary breakfast at The Sathorn, which had a wide spread of food. Serving breakfast from 6am to 10:30am, The Sathorn is housed on the 10th floor of the hotel. The vibe was just right for a leisurely breakfast. We were greeted with plush and sleek interior, warm service, freshly cooked food, and show cooking stations. Featuring Thai and international dishes, flavors were robust and decent. Overall, food was tasty and admirable but nothing to shout about.
Price for Value:
Mode Sathorn Hotel has a special charm that you’d go crazy about, but staying in a well-kept and modern hotel comes with a price. We spent around PhP 4500 per night. It’s one of the most expensive hotel accommodations we ever paid for while abroad. In any case, it’s well worth paying a little more for a contemporary room with the best details and food which gives a nod to our taste. The place looks very stylish and polished, and service is second to none. If you’re planning to go to Bangkok, Thailand, this is a recommended hotel where most things are easily accessible, especially public transportation. 🙂
