A WEEKEND AT THE HANSAR, BANGKOK
The taxi drove passed Rajadamri Road and turned left just after Four Seasons Hotel. I knew then that the hotel was just a few metres away. A further hundred metres or so and there it was, an imposing and elegant structure, covered with a vertical wall of plants. The Hansar Hotel knows how to make a good first impression.
The hotel concierge was full of enthusiasm. They were all smiles, welcoming us excitedly to Bangkok, and to their lovely hotel. It felt like homecoming of sorts, it’s as if we had left home for far too long, and this was a grand welcome by family and friends.
We were escorted to the mezzanine floor, where we registered ourselves. It took longer than expected, and the staff was apologetic, but when she opened the door to our room, we knew why. Our room had been upgraded, and it was an expansive suite, complete with a balcony and an uninterrupted view of the Bangkok Sports and Recreation Club. Thank you.
The Hansar Hotel is located just off Rajadamri Road. With prestigious neighbours such as the Grand Hyatt Erawan, Four Seasons Hotel and the new 6-star St Regis Hotel, competition for the tourists dollar must be extremely aggressive. But what it lost against those global brands were made up by elements that the others could not offer: exclusivity, personality and intimacy.
