Bottom Line

Located near an array of shopping options, Asia Hotel Bangkok is a massive property with multiple restaurants, top-notch fitness facilities, and direct access to the BTS Skytrain. The 600 rooms and suites here are simply furnished with generic decor in muted tones, and all come with air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and electronic safes, but there is an additional fee for Wi-Fi. Room service is available and numerous on-site restaurants serve cuisine from around the world. Potential guests may want to compare rates at Prince Palace Hotel, which has similar facilities and slightly prettier rooms.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

This huge hotel is popular with tourists and business travelers alike.

Housed in a large tower, the Asia Hotel is a massive property that attracts tourists and business travelers alike, as well as a fair share of locals involved in conventions, weddings, and other special events. The lobby is enormous and features marble floors, crystal chandeliers, lots of greenery in the form of potted plants and floral arrangements, and multiple area rugs with chairs situated around coffee tables. A coffee shop is found on the ground floor and a small escalator connects the lobby with an open mezzanine area featuring additional dining options. There's also a small kiosk selling Thai souvenirs for those who don't mind paying a premium to avoid bargaining at local markets. A long check-in desk with multiple staff posts helps the hotel manage its large number of guests. 

Location

In a popular shopping district, a short walk from numerous tourist attractions

The Asia Hotel is near Bangkok's shopping district while a BTS Skytrain station is directly connected by a bridge to the property's second floor. It's a 10-minute walk to the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre and Jim Thompson House, both to the south, and a 15-minute walk to Siam Square. The bustling Khaosan Road takes around 10 minutes to reach by car while getting to the temples of Wat Pho, Wat Prakeaw, and Wat Arun to the west takes around 20 minutes by car. The airport is a half hour drive east. 

Rooms

Rooms and suites with generic -- but not unpleasant -- decor and luxe bathrooms

Asia Hotel Bangkok offers 600 air-conditioned rooms and suites for both smokers and non-smokers. Decor is simple, with a combination of cream-colored marble entry halls, patterned carpeting, white walls with wood accents, and an overall palette reliant on muted tones of beige and tan. All guest units come with flat-screen TVs, kettles, and electronic safes, and interconnecting rooms are available. Bathrooms are modern and strikingly luxe compared to the more simply furnished sleeping areas and include large vanities with side mirrors and lots of counter space, marble walls and floors, telephones, and shower/tub combos. Free basic toiletries are included. Wi-Fi and LAN Internet are available for a fee. 

Features

Conference facilities, spa, pool, and well-equipped fitness center

The rooftop pool is long enough for swimming laps, and the area also has a bar flanked by lounge chairs. A second pool is flanked by a whirlpool hot tub. The hotel's fitness center looks out on one of the pools and features a large selection of modern equipment, including treadmills, stationary bicycles, free weights, and resistance training equipment. A peaceful spa offers multiple sections for foot massages, traditional Thai massage, and various treatments and oil-based bodywork. Use of the sauna costs extra, although it’s included in some treatment packages. There's also a tennis court on the fifth floor of the hotel's annex. 

The Asia Hotel also has 13 meeting and conference rooms, including an enormous ballroom that can seat up to 1,500 guests theater-style. Audiovisual equipment, flip charts, and catering services can be provided upon request. The property is popular among domestic visitors for nuptials and offers its own wedding room for planning purposes.

Food

Multiple restaurants serving cuisine from around the world

The Asia Hotel features a Chinese restaurant, Great Wall, that offers Cantonese specialties and dim sum at lunch and dinner. A coffee shop is open throughout the day and offers buffet dining during meal time and performances by a Thai Elvis impersonator in the evenings. Vietnamese food is available at the Saigon Restaurant, which provides a reasonably priced buffet for lunch and dinner. The hotel also has a Brazilian meat buffet, Rio Grill, open for lunch and dinner. The hotel's lobby bar serves cocktails and snacks, and cakes and pastries can be purchased from the on-site Asia Bakery. There's also a nightly cabaret held in the colorful Playhouse Theater on the basement level that has attracted a few celebrity visitors, including Lady Gaga.
