A few minutes on foot from Thonglor skytrain station, Hotel Nikko Bangkok offers travellers warmth and comfort in elegant interiors. A minimalist design brings together traditional Thai and Japanese aesthetics, lending the hotel a modern yet familiar and welcoming look, while natural light accentuates the sense of freedom.
The rooms are compact, functional and beautifully designed with wide windows offering panoramic city views. The glass-walled bathroom complements the spacious vibe, while toiletries from Panpuri add a spa-like feel. Most importantly, the comfortable beds aid sound sleep as you recharge for another day in the bustling Big Mango.
The hotel boasts plenty of great dining options. The Hishou restaurant serves a not-to-be-missed authentic Japanese breakfast, an Obanzai buffet for lunch/dinner and a wide selection of Japanese beverages, including a Bangkok rarity – Asahi Super Dry Extra Cold at a sub-zero temperature.
If you’re looking for high-quality international buffet, grab a table at Oasis with its fresh juice bar. The lobby lounge Curve 55 also has light meals and Japanese baked goods, with Mariage Frères and sweet-smelling Thai flower tea to sip on. The seasonal afternoon tea set comes recommended.
The hotel’s gym is open 24 hours and offers fitness classes, too. Yoga lovers get an outdoor stretching space close to the pool to kick-start their morning or wind down from the city hustle.
Hotel Nikko is also great for business travellers, offering meeting and conference spaces plus a location in the heart of the sophisticated restaurant-and-leisure district.
