Bangkok is without a doubt one of the best hotel cities in the world. You can find over 100 luxury hotels and most of them looks fascinating based on people’s reviews. Since I want to reach 100 countries by the end of 2012, I did not have time to try all of them. I like hotels that are different from others. Metropolitan Bangkok is one of them. From the minute you step in you can feel a huge different between this hotel and how most other 5-star hotels is. The music in the lobby and how the staff are dressed is very different from anywhere else I’ve been. Metropolitan Bangkok is Thailand’s only member of Design Hotels, and they deserves its membership. It’s great designed and stylish all around. I stayed in a Metropolitan room, and it looked very stylish and different. The best thing about this hotel is the design, but I still like the service in this hotel, although it’s far from the best in the world.
After check in I was escorded to the room by the receptionist and a few minutes later “welcome tea” arrived. Food is good as well in this hotel, and many people have written very positive comments about the breakfast. I liked the breakfast, although it’s not one of the best I’ve had. I would recommend this hotel to people that want a different experience at a reasonable price. It’s not for everyone, some people love it, some people hate it. I liked it. While I’m not sure the older generation will like it, i’m sure most in my generation will like this hotel, but you have to try it to find out.
