A hidden gem at Bangkok - Hotel Once Bangkok


During my last trip to Bangkok, I had the opportunity to collaborate with yet another newly furnished hotel in town - Hotel Once Bangkok!! If you're looking for a hotel to just chill and relax, away from the hustle and bustle city, I'd definitely recommend this place! Good news is that, it's only about 5 mins walk away from the famous night market - Asiatique! The moment you arrive, the lush greeneries will greet you at the entrance, bell boys will provide you with top notch services as you step foot into the hotel (worry not bout your big ass luggages) as you wait to check in to your humble home for the next few days!

As I've mentioned earlier, I have a soft spot for pretty hotels and I've to say this hotel was by far one of the prettiest hotels I've ever stayed at yet!!!! From the minimalist concept which I love so much about to the all white and marble theme embedded into it! It's interior & exterior is absolutely well done to perfection and safe to say, it will definitely meet your expectation! Despite it being a hotel review, I can't stress enough about the beauty and set up of this hotel and I have to admit this hotel really has so much to shout about! (Especially their jaw dropping room)!! 

Read further to find out more about this place!! 



I was literally squealing in excitement as I was approaching my hotel room ushered by one of the staffs there! I stayed at the Executive Jacuzzi room that is sumptuously lit, really! "It is a hip double-floor loft stylish decorated with premium custom-designed furniture; elegant lightings that will enchant its visitors; luscious bubble bath in the jacuzzi tub neatly fixed up in the bathroom; along with all first-rate amenities!" 

After a whole lot of shopping/sightseeing around the city of Bangkok, Hotel Once Bangkok is definitely the perfect place to relax and conceal away from the endless bustling of the city! The jacuzzi tub was just what I needed to end the day right. Truly felt like I had the best princess treatment during my 2 nights stay there!

Below are pictures around the lobby area!



If you're wondering what to expect from where you'll be dining at this hotel, below are a few pictures for you to have a glimpse on! Its dining area is known as Top Knot where they are open for breakfast and also for dinner! Take the flight of stairs and there you get to have your meal/cocktail night out with an enticing city view of Bangkok! Enter the glass-like dining area and there's a wall filled with all kinds of frames which is a picture worthy spot!

If you have a chance, take a lift up to second floor! There you have all things vintage that are pretty interesting to browse at! 


The outdoor swimming pool! Was really hoping I could take a dip when I was there but time did not permit! Thank goodness for the jacuzzi in the room, it was more than enough for me!!
For those who are wondering what's the easiest way to get back to Siam area etc, you can go over to Ramada Plaza (5 mins walking distance from Hotel Once) & hop on a free boat service courtesy of Hotel Once where they will drop you at the nearest train station which is absolutely convenient! So worry not, if you think the distance may be a little inconvenient! It isn't really! 



Extremely thankful to Hotel Once for allowing me to collaborate with them & I look forward to come back again!! For more reviews regarding this hotel, head over to https://www.tripadvisor.com.my/Hotel_Review-g293916-d8735881-Reviews-Hotel_Once_Bangkok-Bangkok.html!

THE PERIOD BOUTIQUE HOTEL PRATUNAM REVIEW

Just came back from my short getaway to the land of smiles, Bangkok! Having been to Bangkok for several times, I've to say this trip was by far one of the best, cheers to mummy for always putting up with me and for being the best companion one can ever ask! If there's one reason why I enjoy travelling so much, it has got to be because I get to look forward to my hotel there. There's just something about hotel beds & sheets that I love so much about hehe. This time around, I had the opportunity to team up alongside with The Period Pratunam for a 2 nights stay. This post will feature solely about my experience at this very humble hotel stay, The Period Boutique Hotel Pratunam. 

Below is my Deluxe Twin Room which is perfect for two. If you're ever looking for an affordable hotel at a prime location (Pratunam), I'd definitely recommend The Period Pratunam. Their room prices ranges from RM160-RM300 (at most) which is extremely reasonable for all that you get out from this boutique hotel. One reason why I will consider returning to this hotel is because of it's absolutely strategic location. One thing for sure, it's location definitely does not disappoint!

What's located nearby:
-Platinum Wholesale Mall which is just a few minutes away (all walking distance!!) The perfect place to get cheap and pretty clothing, will never fail to drop by whenever I visit Bangkok; Central World further up front; take a longer walk to the north and you'll reach Siam Square/Siam Paragon etc (all malls located just right next to each other) 

For Food:
1. Sab x 2- Few rows ahead and there you have the very famous Sab x 2 (consisting of the famous Wanton noodle THB100 and pork leg rice THB130) go early as you've to queue for a bit to get a table of your own. (Both tasted pretty good though they aren't the most appetising looking food). 

Address: 4/32-33 Soi Petchburi 19, Pratunam
5 minutes walk from The Period (The Period is location at Soi 15)
Take a skybridge from Platinum mall to go to the opposite street to the Soi 19 area. 


2. Rann P Aor/ Pee Aor -15 mins walk down the street and there you have another famous Tom Yum Gung Soup noodle, THB 60 for a small bowl (loved it as well, for those who can't take spicy, thats your go-to tom yum place)

Address: 68/51 Soi Phetchaburi 5, Between Soi 5 – 7, Phaya Thai, Ratchathewi



Breakfast for two! 
If you're going down to Bangkok with a group of friends and you're looking for a hostel to stay! Directly next to it is the Boxpackers hostel! which is extremely reasonable as well! An affiliated property of The Period Pratunam.
