Accommodation: Modena by Fraser (Bangkok, Thailand)

The selling point upon booking this place was the bathtub, being it newly opened, a walking distance to the Queen Sirikit MRT station, and the nearby mall Terminal 21 convinced me to book this place. All unnecessary but all at an affordable price of $460AUD for four nights, that’s basically around $115AUD per night, bargain. Being it the weekend there were no crowds, but that also meant the surrounding restaurants were also unopened.

Ambience:
Modena by Fraser Bangkok was only built in 2016 and offers 239 units ready for accommodation. It is modern, hip and focuses on an eco-friendly residence living. In the lobby, while waiting they offer complimentary self yourself drinks and an inviting lounge area, with free wifi. Their lobby is colourful, showcasing Thailand’s local visual artists and making you hungry with their all-day restaurant. Modena targets business travellers who seek form and function while they travel, seeking comfort and convenience in the midst of Bangkok city.

Service:
Service at Modena by Fraser is welcoming, check-in is strict though (which is at 2 pm), but they do allow baggage minding while you wander around for free. Also, if you have not planned your activities in Bangkok, they offer tour packages that include a variety of activities, click here for details of the tours we took with them.

Room: 
The room we chose was spacious, it’s called Studio Premier. The main reason I chose this room was for the alluring bathtub where you can just soak in after a long day of walking and festering in your own filth. Other than the tub, there was nothing else special about the room, they offered complimentary Nescafe capsule coffee (one decaf, one normal) and the views were off other buildings since we were in the Bangkok city.

Food:
I don’t remember the hotel offering room service, but there were restaurants in the vicinity of Modena and Terminal 21 (a shopping mall) was one stop away from the Queen Sirikit MRT station.
The restaurants are Dean and Deluca (sandwiches, cakes, drinks), Snp Cafe (cafe meals), Squeeze (drinks and small meals), So Asean (they have adobo here for the Filipinos out there).

Please also take note, that during weekends most of the restaurants are closed, only Dean and Deluca and Squeeze seem to be open during those days.
