Patumwan, Thailand (PressExposure) June 03, 2009 -- Chateau de Bangkok has seen plenty of attention from business guests in recent times, with location now one of the top considerations in Bangkok hotels for travelers.
Chateau de Bangkok is perhaps the best-located hotel in Bangkok, with its proximity to an area of Thailand that is bustling and thriving, even in the midst of crisis. The area around Ploenchit Road and Chidlom is to Bangkok what Orchard Road is to Singapore, and Knightsbridge to London.
This boutique Bangkok hotel is close to the Bangkok Metropolitan. Elevated walkways connect the large malls nearby with the two Skytrain stations in walking distance of the hotel, Chidlom and Ploenchit.
Chateau de Bangkok has enjoyed the company of many business guests recently. The Bangkok hotel near the BTS has an international restaurant and bar, as well as in-house stores and a currency exchange. Business guests have been particularly positive about the fitness center, swimming pool and sauna.
Some of Bangkok's finest malls can be found in Chidlom-Ploenchit alongside Chateau de Bangkok: the likes of Gaysorn, Peninsula Plaza, Amarin Plaza and the newly-revamped CentralWorld; CentralWorld is now the largest mall in Southeast Asia. The area in front of this mall is also Bangkokâs official New Year countdown venue. Central Chidlom department store is another highlight, and many embassies are also located close by in Wireless and Rajadamri Roads.
A variety of good restaurants and fine Bangkok serviced apartments can be found down Langsuan Road. The nearby Siam area has high-end shopping at Siam Paragon, Siam Centre and Siam Discovery, while MBK offers bargain shopping.
