[Hotel Review]- Centara Watergate Pavillion Hotel Bangkok, Thailand
We were recently in Bangkok, Thailand for 4 days 3 nights and our accommodation was the Centara Watergate Pavillion Hotel Bangkok. We personally chose to stay at the Centara Watergate Pavillion Hotel Bangkok because of its closed proximity to shopping malls such as CentralWorld and Platinum Fashion Mall; moreover, the hotel is about 30 minutes away from Suvarnabhumi Airport via the Airport Rail Link, which has its Ratchaprarop Station located within a 10 minutes walking distance of the hotel.
The hotel has an entrance lobby on the ground floor to the rear of the Watergate Pavillion Shopping and Leisure Complex, which can be accessed either via the complex or by the access driveway alongside the building.
The reception desk is on the 9th floor and can be accessed by the lift from the entrance lobby.
Centara Watergate Pavillion Hotel Bangkok features 281 rooms and suites that will appeal to all travellers; whether single travellers, groups of friends travelling together, families, or couples.
The interior décor of the rooms is characterised by a light and airy contemporary design, with an ambience that reflects Pratunam's reputation for fashion. The accommodation options offer a variety of configurations, from two double beds best suited for families, a king bed for couples, to bunk beds in a separate area for the younger ones.
Each room and suite offers individually controlled air-conditioning, minibar, tea and coffee making facilities, satellite TV, hairdryer, workstation, IDD telephone line, and complimentary wireless internet access.
We stayed in the Deluxe One Bedroom Suite and it was a really comfortable experience. We were actually quite impressed with the fact that there's a turn-down service and guests had the freedom to choose the kind of pillows they want.
