The rooms in the hotel are stunning - really large with great beds. The breakfast was fantastic too. All staff were very courteous and friendly at all times. The hotel is hard to find and no taxi drivers have heard of it. It is essential to download a map to take with you. Once there, ask reception for a pre-printed card with directions in Thai to allow you to get back - just show your next taxi driver.

Have stayed here for more than 24 weeks in total during the last 12 months.
TENFACE is a gem. The staff tries really hard to assist and the service is very hard to fault.

The location is good with shopping and many nice restaurants in the up market Ruam Rudee neighborhood. TENFACE is close to the Siam Paragon shopping mall and in close proximity to the hustle and bustle of the lower end of Sukhumvit – plenty of action there.

TENFACE runs an effective tuk-tuk service on demand and they’ll take you the Ploenchit BTS station.

Taxi’s arriving at TENFACE drive into there the basement where one can take the lift directly to the rooms – i.e. no need to go via reception.

The 61 sq. m one-bedroom units are light and airy and more like a small apartment, with sitting room, kitchen, bathroom, balcony and a well-equipped kitchenette. The décor is clean, sharp lines, with two flat-screen televisions and very high attention to detail. Some of the rooms have rather silly wall paintings and rather odd wall colors. The best room I found was 1701 – a quiet one-bedroom unit on the high floor with a view to the skyline of Sathorn and Silom and a lot of greenery.

Some of the rooms are facing the highway and can be too noisy.
The variety of TV channels is far too limited – not enough English channels and not enough live sports.

TENFACE has a very nice gym as well as a good restaurant although it tends to be empty most of the time.

I was recommended to stay at this chic little designer hotel by a friend, who incidentally loves this place. The ONLY complain that I have (which I am sure that many would agree) is the location. However, the overall experience and ambiance of my stay did somewhat make up for the lack of convenience overall.

The staff are friendly and accommodating, something which you would find in most places in Thailand. Their uniforms are designer chic and I get this feeling that the owner chose some staff for their looks too!

The room is spacious and probably one of the best sheets I've had the pleasure of laying on. Best part, you get to choose 4 different types of pillow fillings, including buckwheat or contoured foam. They would add little touches to the room including a dish of home made chocolate chip cookies upon your arrival plus your own personal NESPRESSO machine with accompanying capsules of a nice variety (beware, it costs $161THBT per capsule). The bathroom amenities are chic and loved the body lotion. The decor for the room is a little curious, you get hanging wire sculptures of Thai inspired culture but one cannot help but feel that they might have to update their look in a year or two cos such designs can look dated after a while. Loved the free wi-fi.

Didn't try the pool but its got a nice area for sun lovers and decent enough for a few short laps. The breakfast has a rather small but healthy variety (really liked the honey comb touch at the side).

The bar is surprisingly very under populated with hardly 2 tables during the NY celebrations. Loud pumping music can be heard every night so if you are a light sleeper, try to avoid a room too near it.

I didn't get to use their complimentary iPod usage but was rather disappointed that they didn't have DVD players in the room (cos after a day of walking, its nice to just relax with a movie before dosing off). TV channels are rather limited but once again, who wants to watch TV when you are in Bangkok? They have their own travel show that features the best of Bangkok that plays on their own channel, quite professionally done with interesting info.

Location - You have to request for their complimentary Tuk Tuk service if you want to get to the main road or the Chid Lom BTS station. They are very fast and I suggest that you get a local DTAC sim card (also known as HAPPY card) for your mobile phone from the local 7-11 (for about $200 THBT? Top ups are $100 THBT above) so you can call them when you reach the Chid Lom BTS station to come pick you up from the meeting point below the station. Taxi rides are HELL cos so far, 4 out of 5 taxi drivers don't know how to get there so get your phone ready for the driver to speak to the hotel reception. Forget about speaking to them in English (unless you are really really lucky to get an English speaking driver). The hotel taxi card was quite useless cos NONE of the drivers got it cos the print was so small.

Don't bother walking out cos it would take AT LEAST 10-15mins and in the scorching hot sun, stick with their tuk tuk service. (Hint - If you want to find alternative breakfast or a bite, I recommend the "Coffee Bean by Dao" cafe that is near the hotel. Lots of yummy cakes, elegant decor and authentic Thai food)

I would recommend this hotel if you want to be away from the hustle of the city, love designer surroundings and like a good deal (I paid $2600 THBT during one of their special offers, got an upgrade to the suite AND a free LIMO ride to the airport. Lovely)
