Adelphi Grande Sukhumvit By Compass Hospitality

  • Room Type : Superior Studio
  • Stay Nights : 10 nights
  • Stay Num : 1 person

I was looking for a serviced apartment with washing machine for my long business trip. We could apply corporate rate to "Adelphi Grande Sukhumvit By Compass Hospitality" and my colleague also recommend me to stay there. When I stayed normal hotel, I felt inconvenience that I couldn't wash my cloth even staying for 2 weeks to 3 weeks in Thailand. That's why to choose "Adelphi Grande Sukhumvit By Compass Hospitality" for this time.

Let's check the exterior of the hotel, entrance and reception

Hotel exterior. The hotel is located behind the main street. Although it is a single road from the main street, I felt around the hotel is a bit dark at night.

There was parking lot.

Entrance

The lobby from outside the hotel. The lobby is large, very clean and has a calm atmosphere. If you have time, you can spend your time watching TV in the lobby.

The front staff were nice as they listened my request sincerely even my English is not fluent.

Front floor elevator hall

There was a sofa and a table in front of the elevator.

Superior Studio

The rooms were very spacious and clean. However, I felt the room lighting were dark at night even all the electricity is turned on.  Thailand is always sunny during the day and bright enough without the lighting, but inside the room is very hot when the curtain is fully opened. So I wish the lighting were much brighter. The air conditioner works well, but it is a bit too effective. I felt so cool sometimes.

The bed was as big as a queen size and it was too big for sleeping alone. Bed is firm and comfortable. It was a bit disappointing that there was no power outlet around the bed.

There was a desk and a chair at the opposite side of the bed. There was a baggage rack next to it.

There was a sofa and a table next to the bed.

The view from the room is not very good as there are several buildings around. As a serviced apartment, I think they don't care about the nice view since almost all guest is business passenger.

Depending on the room, there was another hotel or condominium right next door.  I think it is better to close thin curtains at all the time.

I could see the pool.

Bathroom

There was a bathtub, washbasin and toilet in bathroom.

The bathtub was large enough. The water pressure was not good in my room on 12th floor. Heard from other Japanese guest who was staying on lower floor, he said water pressure was fine.

Amenities were shampoo, rinse, body soap, solid soap, shaving kit, toothbrush set, shower cap and disposable earpick. Body soap doesn't make any bubble, it may be better to bring your own. Shaving and toothbrush are ok quality, and earpick was very soft.

Closet and Safety Box

There was a closet on the left from the door. The door of the closet is a mirror.

The top of the closet was also a storage space.

The closet was not very big. In the closet there was also a bathrobe, slippers and a safety box. Because only 4 hangers (2 of which are bathrobes hanging up), it felt like less.

There was a storage shelf in the lower part of the closet.

I did not use a safety box, but it was a common type of setting 4 digit PIN.

Inside the safety box

Kitchen

A kitchenette with IH cooking heater was equipped in the room. Electric kettle and instant coffee were also available. The best thing was the washing machine. I felt it was a very nice hotel for a business traveler with drum type washing machine.

A microwave oven and a refrigerator were also installed. Some item such as beer and juice were prepared but buying outside was cheaper than mini bar.

Restaurants in the hotel

There was a restaurant called "Cafe Grande" on the fourth floor.

There were seats for about 50 people and sofa seats.

There were outdoor seats in the restaurant. Smoking is prohibited inside and allowed in outdoor seating.

Breakfast is buffet style.

Various dishes line up. Fried eggs and omelets are made on the spot upon request.

The restaurant staff was very helpful.

Salad bar

Japanese were also available such as white rice, miso soup, natto and seaweed rolls. It is good for the guest who doesn't eat Thai food much.

Facilities in the hotel

There was a pool on the 4th floor. It was very wide and open atmosphere since it has no roof. The towel can be borrowed at towel counter. The pool was illuminated until 9 o'clock in the evening, but I did not see anyone using the pool at night.

Some parasols and deck chairs are at poolside. And they has book corner which we can borrow during stay, I thought it was good to read it when I wanted to relax.

Fitness center on 4th floor.

Business center at the lobby.

There seems to be a conference room in the hotel.

Hotel surroundings environment

From the hotel to the main street is about a few minutes walking and they provide tuk tuk service to the main street. It will take about 5 to 7 minutes to Phrom Phong station. The access is totally good. There are many duty free shops and restaurants in the place of EmQuatier directly connected to Phrom Phong Station, and the facilities are also substantial enough to spend the day there. Also, from Phrom Phong station you can access weekend market without transit trains. Regarding meals, there are many Japanese restaurants and Thai restaurants, so it seems to be a very easy environment for the guests.

Staff & Customers

The hotel staff was nice and I appreciated their service. I could communicate in English. Even if my English is not fluent, so there was no inconvenience caused..

The customer base is that there were a lot of business travelers and older people. Because it is not tourists  location, I think that it will probably be the person who came mostly at work. I think that it is almost Japanese.

Access

From the airport it will take about 40 minutes to 1 hour by car. In the evening, traffic jams become severe and it takes time. If you are taxi app, you can order by app and specify the location. T

There is a shopping mall called Em Quartier in Phrom Phong which is convenient. It is like an aeon mall in Japan, not only expensive brands, but also food area, so all shopping will be done there.

Summary

It was nice to stay at this hotel. As I came by business trip, washing becomes the most important benefit to stay at serviced apartment. Since breakfast taste nice,  there is no stress on meals. Because the inside of the hotel and the guest room are equipped with WiFi, it is convenient to make a plan for sightseeing on weekend. It was a good hotel which I would like to stay on my next business trip.
