Led by design and comfort, W Bangkok is the go-to destination to enjoy a fusion of the city’s past and present. By Bayar Jain
Located at a close proximity to the BTS Station for easy access to the rest of the city, W Bangkok is designed for a comfortable stay in the heart of the city. The design and offerings at W Bangkok are created to embody the capital city’s fusion of past and present. The interiors of the hotel mirror the secrecy of the Thai city’s obscure alleyways and corridors, as does The House on Sathorn—an iconic landmark and bar located here that looks like a cross between an ancient palace and a gentlemen’s club. The hotel also seamlessly evokes spirits of the past as well as the city’s captivating blend of modern skyscrapers and ancient temples, and shimmering bijous.
