Recently we had the pleasure of staying at the AETAS Hotel in Bangkok, ideally located in the centre of Bangkok’s shopping, business and diplomatic districts. AETAS is a family owned company that has two hotels, AETAS Bangkok and AETAS Lumpini as well as the AETAS Residence, which are their serviced apartments for longer stays.
AETAS Bangkok and AETAS Residence are across the street from one another on Soi Ruamrudee and very near the Conrad Hotel.
The hotel offers five different room types; their superior rooms are 35 sqm’s and offer modern amenities such as IP phones, IPTV along with ironing boards with irons. Deluxe rooms are a little larger at 46 sqm’s and offer panoramic views of the city a long with extras such as a large high-def LCD TV and a well-furnished mini bar.
We stayed in one of their Executive Suites and found them spacious at 68 sqm’s. The lounge had tastefully designed furniture, a large and comfortable work station, (with plenty of plugs for all of our devices), a comfortable sofa and armchairs plus a large LCD TV. The separate bedroom comes with another LCD TV, several roomy closets and a handy dresser. The bathroom is quite large and features a separate rain shower with adjustable jets, and a stand-alone bathtub. There was also an additional half bath which was located by the entry hall off of the lounge.
The Hotel’s Governor Suite is larger still at 118 sqm’s and is outfitted more like a serviced apartment with a kitchen that features a refrigerator, microwave and sink. Views are great in these suites with panoramic views of Bangkok from both the bedroom and bathroom.
When you’re truly in the mood to pamper yourself then the 200 sqm Presidential Suite awaits. The suite is split on two floors and includes a very spacious living room and dining room with a beautiful glass dining table accommodating up to ten people. The high windows with remote-controlled curtains offer panoramic views of Bangkok and direct access to the private terrace and outdoor Jacuzzi. Next to the dining room is a very convenient and fully-equipped kitchen should you wish to have your meals prepared within your suite. An electric double glass door leads into the large bedroom with its adjoining living room and a second Jacuzzi with adjustable jets is available in the spacious bathroom.
When staying at AETAS I highly recommend you upgrade to Club AETAS. Club privileges always get you complimentary evening cocktails but here you also receive complimentary afternoon tea from 2:00 pm. – 3:30 pm, complimentary mini bar service (beer and soft drinks), 3 pieces of complimentary laundry per day, complimentary butler service, complimentary local calls, 3 hours of free usage of their boardroom accommodating up to six people and a guaranteed late check-out.
This along with the usual club floor amenities of personalized express check-in, continental breakfast served on the club floor, complimentary coffee, tea and soft drinks throughout the day and the aforementioned 2 hours of complimentary evening cocktails.
AETAS also has all the amenities you’ve come to expect in a 4 or 5 star hotel such as a pool, pool bar/restaurant a fitness center and a spa.
Moments is their main restaurant and it’s where you go to breakfast when you’re not on the Executive floor. Their lobby lounge is called Pause and offers both in-door and out-door seating. In addition to their innovative cocktails they also offer a fine selection of international wines and ales, and an appetizing array of soft drinks, fresh fruit juices plus their signature coffee drinks. The food menu comprises a variety of pleasing snacks, more elaborate dishes, and home-made bakery and pastry items.
For the business traveler AETAS offers stylish contemporary meeting facilities with sophisticated video and sound systems. Their ballroom can be configured to accommodate up to 250 people for meetings, cocktail parties or even weddings.
The hotel’s location is convenient, being within walking distance or one or two BTS stations away from some of the best shopping centres Bangkok has to offer. Here you are mere minutes from Central Embassy, Central World, Siam Paragon, Gaysorn Plaza and All Season’s Place.
In addition to shopping, AETAS is also ideally located for those interested in Health Tourism. Bumrungrad International Hospital is just 5 minutes from AETAS. Bumrungrad is Southeast Asia’s largest private medical centre and is one of the world’s most popular medical tourism destinations.
