How to Get There
The Cabochon is a gem of a hotel in a city full of impersonal chains, tucked away from the bustle of the Sukhumvit main road, it is thoughtfully designed for a much needed respite from the lovable chaos that is Bangkok.
A dream location for mega shoppers (if that's your jam), the Cabochon is a short shuffle down to the Phrom Phong train station to get you around town if you don't fancy a 2 day taxi ride across town, and also has some great little local foodie joints and epic quality hole-in-the-wall cafes within walking distance (quite literally, if you love coffee you have to try co-oincidence.. it's about 5 minutes away by foot).
The rooms are generously sized, ample storage so you can really feel like you've moved in, the bed delivered 3 blissful nights sleep, natural light to the bathrooms is always a bit special, and the toiletries were just lush.
The common areas were resplendent, uniquely appointed with carefully curated furniture and trinkets triggering the imagination to a bygone era. I have seen some reviews state the armchair seating at breakfast was awkward, but we loved it. Much more pleasing to the eye and a better use of space than another room full of tables and chairs that are not used throughout the day and into the evening. Breakfast is a pretty quick meal anyway, much better to eat and then recline with a good book or the supplied broadsheets.
But. The pool area. Although cleverly designed, with the use of wooden screens and sliding sails to create a sense of privacy, the pool area overall looked a little tired, a bit like it was set and left. The pool towels were consistently threadbare and peppered with moth holes, and there was some epic slime on the bottom of the pool which in some parts had multiplied itself into tiny tufts of mould, indicating the pool had not been cleaned in a very long time. Not ideal for a 4 star hotel, nor a rooftop pool which likely climbs to some pretty dangerous water temperatures on its own.
Equally, no food or drink service? Isn't that one of travels' great joys? I might expect that at a lower calibre of hotel, but it seems like a no brainer at an establishment such as the Cabochon, even if it is just for certain periods of the day?
The staff here though, are truly special. We were made to feel most welcome each and every morning, and each day we flew back in the front doors seeking cool respite after the days shenanigans. Would definitely recommend, but somebody please pay more attention to that pool!
Really like this space, it may not be a big brand/hotel but it's packed with so much details and effort into its design. From customer services to the designs of the room, I'm very impressed! The interior lighting is mostly dim, so it doesn't justify the photos taken. For breakfast, there's a few dishes to choose from and different stations from a variety of fruits, to pastry, yoghurt, juice of the day and even a small porridge station.
I enjoyed the rooftop pool the most, very pretty!! Overall, I enjoyed my stay just wished that the wifi could be better.
We spend 4 days in Bangkok and had 3 nights at the hotel. Breathtaking furniture and style of colonial times. Fantastic rooms and also a great restaurant. The people are super friendly. Strong recommendation!!!!
The location of the Cabochon hotel is great for shopping - close to Terminal 21 mega mall and other shops.
It's a lovely boutique hotel with attentive and helpful staff (minus the door hop forgetting one of our suitcases in the taxi upon arrival but luckily we realized it before he drove off!!). They were welcoming and let us have a late check out without issue.
Quiet and charming, great attention has been paid to the decoration (careful, the building is not old as several reviews seem to highlight - it's from 2012 according to their website).
Breakfast is really wonderful, especially the French toast, and the restaurant also has good food.
NOT SO GREAT POINTS:
However, the hotel is not spacious and all the decorations make for a cramped interior. We had check-in done in a living space so full of things that I had to sit sideways on the couch. It is not easy to get around in the hall and certainly not in the breakfast space.
Bloggers are out front at all times taking 10000 photos and it becomes a bit silly at some point.
The pool is clean and quiet, but there is no service for drinks or other as it is a small hotel.
The room we had was TINY by Bangkok standards and the price was very high on the quality/value scale. It was fine for one night but so cramped that I'm glad we stayed in other hotels for the rest our stays in Bangkok. Other rooms are spacious but on the price scale, it's really out of touch for what you can get elsewhere.
There was a musty smell in the room that a burning candle with oil in bathroom was hoped to conceal but did not. It wasn't overwhelming but I would not want to be in the room for more than 2 days at that price with musty smell in addition. (The building isn't old so I don't know the issue with the smell.)
Overall, it's something unique in Bangkok but the price is really unjustified and for that we won't return.
First time in Bangkok , stayed here for a couple of nights before going to Koh Samui. If you would like to avoid the modern high rise hotels this one is for you . Just 14 bedrooms , roof top pool and public rooms full of antiques and curiosities...oh and an amazing restaurant . Quit location at the end of a lane but really easy to walk into the hustle and bustle too . Do go !!
