After having recently had a most enjoyable stay at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London (see separate Review), I was most interested to see how its namesake was faring in Bangkok.
In this regard, both properties are members of the Landmark Lancaster Hotel Group (there are also well known Landmark properties in Bangkok and London) and I paid a brief visit to the Lancaster Bangkok (which is located in the up and coming Makkasan District) this afternoon. It had literally only been open a few days and - as such - it was not surprising to find a number of workmen still on applying some finishing touches.
It is always nice (but not unusual in Bangkok where Thai hospitality is in a league of its own) to be warmly welcomed on arrival and this certainly proved the case today. Similarly, the service in the lounge area - where I enjoyed a very nice cappuccino - was equally first class.
All in all, my brief visit went very well and I would certainly encourage visitors to Bangkok to proactively consider staying at the Lancaster which is not only the latest Hotel on the Bangkok landscape but one where you will be assured of a warm welcome!More
