Chic hotel in a chic area at reasonable price
Le Fenix Sukhumvit is a stylish newcomer to Bangkok, built in 2007. It is right next door to a couple of well known night clubs and is designed to appeal to a young hip crowd. The hotel can get a little bit noisy at the weekends because of the proximity to the nightclubs, but if you plan on joining in with the festivities then who cares? When you get a room at Le Fenix Sukhumvit you also great free entry into Bed Supperclub.
The website describes the hotel as having a ‘Futuristic design and sleek angles’. And indeed it does look good both inside and outside. Top design company SODA was brought in to model the hotel. The result is minimalist interiors with white walls broken up by colourful modern art. All room also have a distinctive ‘L’ shaped window. There is a bit of ‘seventies retro’ about the design of this hotel, which works quite well. For a hotel in this price range you don’t often see this much thought having gone into the design.
The hotel has three eating and drinking options:
L3 Eatery – Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. International menu
Flow – Drinks and tapas with a city view
Nest – Cool roof top lounge bar. Popular with non-guests which ensures a good ‘vibe'
The hotel has three room types: Standard Queen, Superior Queen and Standard Twin. The rooms are really nicely decorated (more seventies retro). The room sizes aren’t published. Our opinion is that they are a little bit smaller than the standard room size, our best guess is 22 to 25sqm. The bathrooms are smallish also. However, for the cost of the rooms, I don’t think anyone staying at Le Fenix Sukhumvit has good grounds to complain about this. This hotel is really good value for money. If you are young and enjoy a good night out, and you don’t want to slum it in Khao San, then this hotel is for you. Last group of people we know who stayed there was a group of English girls in their twenties and they loved it.
