Fortunately, the Covid-19 situation in Thailand has become less serious with regards to the number of domestic infections, so I’ve decided to see what it’s like staying at the Pullman Bangkok King Power.
A Warm & Organized Welcome
A good impression was made from the moment we stepped through the doors. They were prepared with safety measures for the guests and staff, and maintained good hygiene throughout the building. The porter had a mask and a face shield on; and upon entering the building our temperatures were taken.
We were staying in an executive suite, so for check-in we escorted to the 20th floor where they once again checked our temperatures and let us disinfect our hands.
Check in was swift – we only had to fill in where we’d visited recently for the travel history section. In the lounge they also supplied us with plastic holders for our masks when we were not using them. It was nice to see visible social distancing stickers on every other sofa or chair to keep us mindful.
The Executive Suite
The Living Room
The suite we were staying in is located on the 19th floor with a view of swimming pool and a city view. We could even see the sky train snake its way through buildings!
I was impressed with the generous size of the living room: complete with a spacious sofa on which two people can spread out, and a huge TV.
There was also a round table with three chairs, making it perfect for in-room dining. The bar fridge came with two complimentary sodas replenished daily, and a Nescafe coffee machine. There was enough glassware provided, and more than enough complimentary water in every part of the suite.
The Bed & Bathroom
The bed was comfortable and also had a TV of its own. I particularly liked the different lights in bedroom and the whole suite because I could adjust it to my choosing.
The bathroom was fully equipped with all the amenities one would expect, including bath salts.
Being that there were very few foreign tourists, it goes without saying that we basically had the whole swimming pool to ourselves. And that was perfect because we just wanted to relax. And a bonus is that there’s never a shortage of sun loungers. 🙂 The only food we had at the pool area was a hamburger and it did not disappoint.
The Executive Club Lounge
The Executive Club Lounge was a bit on the small side for me personally, but during this time it was just right as there was only one other guest in it during the evening cocktail time between 5-7 pm.
There were enough options to choose for drinks, including cocktails, wines and beers. Under normal circumstances in a club lounge there’s usually a wide range of canapes served in a mini-buffet style. Instead, they had a tapas menu which had 4 options, and for dessert the same. This was a bit disappointing as I felt that they could’ve had more variety to order from a menu. Sometimes there were only one or two canapes that I actually enjoyed.
Breakfast at Cuisine Unplugged
Instead of going to the different cooking stations ourselves, we were given a menu from which we could choose options that were freshly prepared for us. Although the options were reduced, it seemed to cater well with regards to variety.
All in all, I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. I would love to go back when it’s operating as usual again.
