High-quality sleek-new-chic in town! The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon is sure to impress.
The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon opened in the summer of 2022. A new chic, sleek ultra-contemporary addition to the Bangkok hotel scene. It is located within the ground to 18th floors of the iconic head-turning pixelated 78-storey King Power Mahanakhon Building, currently dominating the Bangkok skyline.
It is well-positioned between Silom and Sathorn. The Chao Phraya river and the atmospheric old town are about 15 minutes drive and in the opposite direction, you have the green space of Lumpini Park. The Skytrain station of Chong Nonsi is just in front. From here it is just 3 stops to the main Silom Square shopping area with its numerous retail malls or two stops south to the river. The two airports in Bangkok are about a 55-minute drive away.
The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon has 155 guest rooms spread over 10 floors. All have floor-to-ceiling windows allowing you to fully appreciate Bangkok.
You have a choice of:
Prince Rooms (the introduction rate, 29 Sqm, so a little on the compact side but perfectly adequate for a one or two-night stay).
The Standard King rooms are larger at 40sqm and offer a king bed.
The especially suggested Corner Rooms are 55sqm and offer either twin or king bed, with integrated extra living space, and probably offer the most dramatic views.
You then have a few one-bedroom and speciality suites.
- Several highly ( no pun intended ) positioned & acclaimed restaurants and bars, each with different cuisine themes
- A couple have already received rave reviews, even in advance of the hotel’s official opening
- There is a glass floor viewing deck on the very top floor – bouncing is not suggested
The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon is a real talking point hotel due to its incredible exterior. Inside it is modern and sleek, sometimes deliberately quirky, with just an occasional reference point to Thai culture. The design is from Spaniard Jaime Hayon, who is known for his minimalist, less-is-more colourful themes.
The restaurants and bar options are amazing, so make a point of visiting even if you are not staying. You do need to be comfortable with heights as some are elevated, allowing you to overview Bangkok, dramatic both day & night. The swimming pool is on the 6th floor
We think the appeal will be to couples, curious high-flying travellers wanting a real quality statement hotel. We have mentioned the shopping malls around Siam Square. Equally impressive and riverside location is IconSiam. An incredible experience even if you are not buying. Make it late afternoon/early evening to coincide with the light show.
