Upon arriving, we were brought to the Premier Lounge for private check in, avoiding the usual queue at the reception counter. This exclusive benefit is provided for Accor Platinum members or when Executive Rooms on Premier Floor is booked.
Our 30 sq meter Executive Room on Premier Floor is quite spacious with a king size bed, work desk, day lounge sofa and also a petite living room with sofa & flat screen LCD Tv.
The executive room is contemporary design with a home away home ambiance with its wooden background & furniture fittings. It is also good to know all Executive rooms on Premier floors have been renovated, which is a better choice compare to the other ordinary rooms which are still slated for renovation.
The bathroom has a separated shower area, vanity & water closet with their Novotel bathroom amenities. One feature missing is definitely the bathtub which we do expect in Executive Rooms.
There is also a switch to make the shower glass to be transparent if you noticed on our bedroom photo above. Not too sure how different guests use it for, but the feature makes the room slightly more spacious.
Apart from private check in, Executive Room or Accor Platinum guests are entitled to enjoy breakfast, all day beverages & evening cocktails at Premier Lounge located on the Ground Floor.
Daily from 5pm to 7pm, we get to enjoy a good spread of canapes, pastries, hot dishes, cocktails, wine & beer. Different daily cocktail are served for this hotel.
There is also a swimming pol and a fitness center equipped with most cardio machines & weight resistant equipment.
The Tammachart Day Spa is located on the 4th floor of Novotel Bangkok on Siam Square overlooking the pool offering various massage and beauty treatments using only natural ingredients, oils, grains and mud.
I tried the 60 mins Sports Massage while Cecilia chose the 60 mins Aroma Relax Massage. The therapists are very skillful especially mine which emphasize on healing sore muscle. The strength can be unbearable for some but it was great for me and you can always tell the therapist whether the strength is insufficient or overwhelming.
The Square Restaurant is Novotel Bangkok on Siam Square’s signature all day dining restaurant and is where hotel guests enjoy their daily buffet breakfast.
The restaurant is contemporary designed with expansive view of Siam square area & hotel lobby, ideal place to enjoy moments of Bangkok life while enjoying the buffet.
Buffet breakfast starts at 6am to 10.30am and offers a great selections of food.
Overall the location of Novotel Bangkok on Siam Square is definitely their trump card which is very ideal for tourists on a shopping or food hunt trip in Bangkok. Our stay was enjoyable at the hotel since our room was newly renovated there were no significant problem for us.
What we look forward: Renovations for other rooms & parts of the hotel as it is dated.
