Chaophya Park Hotel Offers Great Value In Bangkok, Thailand

The Chaophya Park Hotel, located on Ratchadapisek Road in Bangkok, Thailand, is a 400-room hotel that offers guests four-star service at three-star prices. Actually, at some of the restaurants you’d have to go to a top five-star restaurant to beat the quality. If value for money is something that’s important to you, however, it’s hard to beat anything that this hotel has to offer.

Quiet, well-appointed rooms that feature Thai artifacts are all a minimum size of 37 square meters and feature direct IDD telephones, satellite television, electronic control panel board, safe deposit box, mini-bar, coffee/tea making facilities and a private marble bathroom with a separate shower and bathtub. And non-smoking floors are available. Another important feature is the free internet and wi-fi access throughout the hotel. These amenities are all something that you would expect at any five-star establishment.

And another nice feature of the hotel is its convenient location. It wasn’t nearly as great a location until the subway started running a few years ago. Now, though, a couple minutes of walking takes you to the nearest station and in about 15 minutes you’re at Sukhumvit Road in in 20 minutes you’re at Silom Road, the two major thoroughfares in Bangkok. And these two stations connect directly to the overhead Skytrain system which opens up many more destinations for shopping, dining and entertainment. Mass transit is definitely the way to get around Bangkok which you will certainly know if you’ve traveled here before or live here now.

The Chaophya Park also has an adjacent convention and recreation center that is comprised of a 2,100 square meter banquet space along with a spa and massage center, the Bali Spa and Thai Massage. With a total of 70 treatment rooms this is one of the largest therapeutic massage centers in Bangkok. And with three ballrooms and nine meeting rooms the banquet center is a very convenient place for corporate events, MICE functions and conferences and also elegant wedding, birthday and anniversary parties. And don’t worry about parking since the property has 900 parking spaces.

One area the hotel pays particular attention to is its food and beverage service. With four full restaurants and other services as well, the hotel can offer you a wide variety of dining options. The featured restaurants are the Al Massimo Italian restaurant, the Park CafĂ©, which features all-day dining and ala carte and buffet meals, the Garden Court Chinese restaurant and the Mori Grill which features Japanese cuisine. Al Massimo and the Garden Court also have some buffet offerings, Al Massimo only at dinner (it’s closed for lunch) and the Garden Court at both lunch and dinner. At each of the restaurants we’ve dined at here we’ve found excellent value for money. In addition to these restaurants there’s also the Lobby Lounge bar and wine cellar, a coffee shop featuring pastries, baked goods and ice cream and a kao tom buffet. Even if you’re swimming or sunbathing you can get a drink from the Pool Bar.

To work off all the great food you’ll consume here the hotel has a fully equipped gymnasium and the above-mentioned pool along with a Jacuzzi. And, it is the only city center hotel to feature a full service golf driving range on two levels. It’s one of a kind complete with fully computerized caddies. There’s a full service golf shop and food and beverage service is available here throughout the day.

So if you want to maximize the service you get while minimizing the bill you pay, the Chaophya Park Hotel in Bangkok is a good alternative to many of the pricier places in the Sukhumvit and Silom areas and worth taking a look at.
