The Rembrandt – Bangkok

Bangkok is a city bustling with life. For our base we wanted somewhere with a good location to get around the city and one which had a pool for us to relax in after our busy days’ exploring.

We chose The Rembrandt in Sukhumvit, although first impressions left me a little disappointed as on arrival after a long flight I expected a welcome drink and refreshing towel, which I think is pretty standard now for any decent international hotel, but not at The Rembrandt.

Luckily the hotel did redeem itself after my initial disappointment. There were two things I really loved about The Rembrandt . . . firstly the amazing pool.

We spent a big part of our first day relaxing by the pool, recovering from our jet lag, having a gentle swim and ordering some great food.

We also had our first holiday cocktails and sipping on a great drink and taking in the city skyline views was a lazy but fantastic way to spend our first day!

Which brings me onto my other favourite thing about The Rembrandt . . . the fabulous cocktails! We were so impressed with them at the poolside we decided to start each night in Bangkok with a cocktail (or three) from the lobby bar before heading out.

The lobby bar had a piano player in the evenings and the drinks really impressed me. In fact I would say they were the best cocktails we had all holiday . . .  and we had a lot. The service at the bar was also really friendly.

Now onto the room itself. We stayed in one of the hotel’s executive rooms. Ours had a generously sized marble bathroom with the hotel’s own brand toiletries.

The open plan bedroom had a desk and chair, a large unit with an HD television, a mini bar and seating area.

An extremely comfy king size bed . . .

But best of all is that the executive rooms are on the higher floors giving you fantastic views over the city, which looked beautiful at night.

For a base when exploring this amazing city we are glad we choose The Rembrandt, we had a great room, fantastic views, a beautiful pool and excellent cocktails!

    What a lovely insight into The Rembrandt Hotel and I agree its worth paying a little extra for a room higher up to capture the Bangkok views!

    This does sounds like a great base to explore the sites. Bangkok is amazing and I love it. Shame about the welcome drinks and towel- it should be standard when flying into hot countries. Glad the cocktails were nice though.

    We are going to Bangkok in 2020 so I’ll put this one on the list for cocktails if nothing else, they look amazing.
