Bottom Line

The 212-room AETAS Bangkok is a luxury property that offers a wide range of modern guest rooms and suites with classic and contemporary details, though some are more stylish than others. An array of in-room conveniences includes flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, tea- and coffee-making facilities, free Wi-Fi, and beautiful bathrooms with separate rainfall showers and soaking tubs, while Executive/Club bookings are entitled to a host of perks like free breakfast, private butlers, and free evening cocktails. Situated in the upscale Chidlom/Ploenchit area of central Bangkok, some rooms have excellent city views and the outdoor saltwater pool and on-site spa are both stand-out features. There's also a stylish restaurant serving international cuisine, as well as a lobby bar. Guests looking to stay in Silom/Sathorn should try Mode Sathorn Hotel, which has similar amenities and a rooftop bar, though rooms can be more expensive.

Scene

Laid-back luxury hotel ideal for business travelers and couples

The laid-back, luxury vibe of the AETAS Bangkok draws mainly couples and business travelers, though families are welcome here as well. Set back from the main road within a modern high-rise, the koi ponds and trees surrounding the hotel provide a peaceful atmosphere. Inside, white marble plays against dark damask prints and gleaming floors in a lobby that’s set with aqua armchairs, retro leather seating, and bright Victorian-style pieces. Just off the main lobby is a cozy and relaxed lounge with plush orange sofas and papasan-style chairs overlooking the small koi pond. The hotel’s Moments restaurant is a stylish, if somewhat generic, upscale buffet-style restaurant, while a quaint lobby bar and cafe offer places for guests to relax with a coffee or drink.

Location

Upscale Chidlom/Ploenchit location, an eight-minute walk to skytrain

Chidlom/Ploenchit is one of central Bangkok’s ritziest areas, and the streets that branch off of manic Ploenchit/Sukhumvit Road are lined with exclusive hotels, luxury apartment buildings, high-end shopping malls, and trendy eateries. The Ploen Chit Skytrain station is at the end of the road, an eight-minute walk from the hotel, giving easy access to destinations like Chatuchak Weekend Market (35 minutes) and the wild nightlife and trendy restaurants near Silom Road (20 minutes). Sukhumvit Road, a 10-minute walk from the hotel, is one of the city’s commercial hubs, and there is street food, nightlife, bars, and international restaurants lining any of the sois (sidestreets) in the area, including a lively night market. Trips to Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Mueang Airport can take up to 45 minutes by taxi depending on traffic, though Suvarnabhumi can be reached by using the skytrain and Airport Rail Link in just over an hour at a fraction of the cost. The hotel runs a free shuttle to the Ploen Chit Metro station for guests who don’t want to walk in the Bangkok heat. 

Rooms

Modern, clean rooms, though design is far superior in suites

Like its sister property, AETAS Lumpini, these rooms are modern and comfortable, with minimalist design elements and contemporary decor, though it can be slightly bland in some rooms. Superior Rooms start at 377 square feet, while Executive Club Rooms are large, topping out at 732 square feet. Room decor can vary, but Superior and Deluxe Rooms share similarly elegant green carpets with distinct Thai patterns, white walls, and light wood paneling. Twin or king beds are comfortable, with duvets, tan-and-brown silk bed runners, and matching throw pillows, while contemporary dark ochre armchairs provide additional seating next to glass work desks with ergonomic chairs. Padded leather headboards add warmth to the rooms, though the generic, abstract wall art lacks personality. Suites are more stylish and sophisticated, with dark wood furniture and dark accent walls, lighter carpets, and subtle damask motifs used in thoughtful ways, as well as separate sleeping areas and more seating. All rooms include mini-fridges with minibars, flat-screen TVs, telephones, electronic safes, free bottled water, individually controlled air-conditioning, and electric kettles with free coffee or tea. Bathrooms are spotless, with white tile floors and walls, large white granite vanities, separate bathtubs and walk-in rainfall showers, bathrobes, and a complete line of toiletries. Bathrooms in suites are even more attractive, and though design varies, mosaic-tiled showers and stand-alone soaking tubs are lovely. Guests should keep in mind that a glass window separates the bathroom from the main room in Superior and Deluxe Rooms, though there are retractable blinds for privacy. 

Features

Tranquil outdoor pool, luxurious on-site spa, restaurant and lobby bar, and Executive/Club booking perks

This hotel emphasizes luxury wellness with several excellent features, such as a tranquil and secluded outdoor saltwater pool with two hot tubs. It’s surrounded by trees and tropical plants, as well as a narrow terrace with lounge chairs, and even though the pool bar is directly adjacent, the area maintains a relaxed vibe. AETASPA is a high-end destination for massages and beauty treatments, with hardwood accents and deep warm colors throughout, as well as gold-leaf abstract art on the walls. The hotel’s fitness center has a few cardio and cable-machine options and gets plenty of natural light.

There is only one on-site restaurant, Moments, which serves Asian and international dishes day and night with buffet or a la carte options. The restaurant also serves an excellent breakfast buffet with a wide array of hot and cold options, though it’s only included with some bookings. A casual, window-lined lobby bar offers a selection of beer, wine, and cocktails as well as TVs showing international sports and a grand piano, while on-site Urbis Cafe serves a selection of pastries, coffees, and teas. Executive Room (or Club Room) bookings are entitled to exclusive use of Club AETAS, a chic and cozy lounge that serves a separate free breakfast, as well as free afternoon tea service and free evening cocktails and snacks. Executive/Club bookings receive a host of other benefits, like private butlers, limited free laundry service, and late check-out when available.

The hotel has two on-site meeting and events rooms that can accommodate up to 300 people, as well as a smaller boardroom for up to 30 guests. Audiovisual and catering services can be arranged by the hotel and there is a computer station with high-speed Internet located just off the lobby. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel. There is a 24-hour front desk as well as a dedicated concierge team that can arrange private car and limousine services.
