Bangkok is a vibrant city that has so much to offer regarding, shopping, eating and partying. It is a city that consumes me with its endless entertainment and for this reason, I decided to stay at Cape House serviced apartments. With so much to take in right in the heart of Bangkok, I wanted space and a place I could do my own cooking, some washing and reflect on 2017 and what I have achieved.
For me as a business client, the Cape House Bangkok is in a great location. The Cape House serviced apartments are located right in the heart of the Ploenchit neighbourhood on the vibrant Soi Langsuan, which has restaurants and street food stalls. Cape House provides easy access to Bangkok’s major business, entertainment and shopping districts as well as several embassies and beautiful public parks like Lumpini Park.
A three-minute walk got me to the Chidlom BTS station from where the public transport network awaits. It is also the start of the R Walk where there is a large raised and covered walkway that connects all the major shopping centres.
In entering the reception area there is a simplicity and efficient atmosphere that greets me. Which makes perfect sense as most customers are here on business and want to embrace their own private den at their own pace. On the ground floor is also the restaurant the Italian Bistro on 43 which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The dining area has an Italian bistro feel to it, with its split-level, balcony and stalls configuration it makes dining relaxed and easy to chat with people.
What I liked about the Cape house that it also had an affordable and extensive room dining service. It allowed me to stay in the hotel in the evening when I did not feel like going out for dinner.
Breakfast was a buffet, which had enough variety on offer. With fresh tea and coffee and plenty of international cuisines to choose by it was enough to get me started for the day. My favourite food was the huge muffin that could be eaten by two people, unfortunate they were so good I could not share them. Part of the buffet was an egg station, where eggs were served made to order.
Executive Lounge And Swimming Pool
I loved the decor of the executive lounge on the 5th floor which was white and bright and offered views over the city of Bangkok. It was the perfect place to meet other guests or do some business talk. There was a small buffet on offer which changed throughout the day and the lounge was perfect for an afternoon tea. The lounge felt classy and clean and the interior design reminded me of France. There were plenty of newspapers and magazines on offer to read in a quiet and comfortable environment.
The swimming pool and gym were located one floor higher on the 16th. Also here the standard was high and once again the views overlooking the city were perfect making it a lovely place to wine and dine either during the day or in the evening. The Jacuzzi was large and super warm and I loved being in it after a hard day of work and shopping. The swimming pool was big enough to do laps and deep enough to tread water. The gym also had enough equipment to use and work off some weight.
The pool area is a nice entertainment area for family and friends. The lounge chairs were very comfortable and the staff were always on the ball keeping everything in pristine order.
In entering the one-bedroom suite I loved the white decor and dark wood flooring which was perfect for the city of Bangkok. It had a modern Asian feel to it. Boasting at 55 sqm, this elegant one-bedroom suite featured a spacious comfortable bedroom. The bedroom was separate to the lounge and the bed was huge and very comfortable.
The lounge area was big and had a comfortable sofa, chair, desk area, TV, sound system and dining table for four. I liked how it had a small balcony from where I could overlook the city.
The suite offered every convenience necessary for a comfortable stay. It was clean, cosy and spacious. I liked how the small kitchenette included a washing machine, microwave oven, fridge and stove. If I really wanted to cook it was possible.
The bathroom offered a separate shower and bath and was big enough to cater to two people. The bedroom was spotless and had a great feel to it. The room even though in the centre of Bangkok, was quiet and I slept very well. The room came with plenty of storage place for long stay clients, and for me, as I was shopping, I had plenty of extra wardrobe space to store my latest purchases.
Cape House offers luxury serviced apartments consisting of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites, all under hotel-style service. It’s a place where you can feel home away from home with the extra bells and whistles. In my observation, there were mainly long term guests and business clients. It is a place where business meetings can be held and also a place to chill after a hard day’s work. Guests are well looked after and are served well. There are plenty of places nearby to eat, shop till you drop and go out partying as well. I recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a bit more than a hotel room and wants a place centrally located in Bangkok.
