One of the best things about Bangkok is its affordable luxury hotels. On my last trip to Bangkok, I tried a couple of interesting hotels to review for you guys. Mode Sathorn is a four-start hotel in the neighbourhood of Sathorn, close to a lot of services and attractions. Mode Sathorn is a is a modern and its design definitely tempting for the younger generation. The rooms are very unique but in a good way. The hotel has a ton of potential, but unfortunately the interior is a tad outdated when you look closely and the service is not as great is you might expect in Thai hotels. But all in all, Mode Sathorn does offer a luxurious stay for those on a bit of a budget. The room I stayed in was definitely one of the coolest I’ve yet come across with!
Executive Mode Room
The room levels at Mode Sathorn are Business Studio, Deluxe Mode Room, Executive Mode, One Bedroom Suite, Two Bedroom Suite and Presidential Suite. I usually book Premium level rooms in hotels, as it is often only a little bit more expensive and you will definitely end up getting value for your money. At Mode Sathorn, I chose the Executive Mode and was very happy with my choice!
The room was one of the most positive surprises of all I’ve stayed in along my travels. The room (or more so, rooms) was spacious as f*ck. As you enter, you come into a hallway where you’ll first find a bathroom, then a toilet and then the actual room with fabulous views over the city. And as you can see, the bed was located in the middle of the room – which I thought was moderately funky too.
The bathroom had a fabulous bathtub with a bit of a view over the city too.
I can highly recommend staying here, as long as you don’t mind the little outdated furniture.
Services at Mode Sathorn
The hotel had a fabulous swimming pool with sunbathing facilities, but due to my busy work schedule, I, unfortunately didn’t manage to try them out.
The hotel also comes with a breathtakingly amazing rooftop bar with OMG-WOW-OMG views over the skyline of Bangkok. I would come up there to enjoy some cocktails and sushi after a busy day.
As a guest of the Executive Room, I was also entitled to use the lounge facilities at the hotel, where I could enjoy small snacks and big Gin & Tonics in the afternoon. Other than that, I mainly ate Pad Thai from the room service.
The hotel also has a spa, but I didn’t manage to go see it.
The breakfast was served in a very hipster-like restaurant. With a fabulous decor and tasty selection of fruit juice, I was pleased. The breakfast was also definitely catering more for the Asian preferences, which is always good for me. I’m not sure I even saw bacon or toast, but it was probably there somewhere.
