On a leafy street on Soi Langsuan, the Hotel Muse Bangkok combines the opulence of 19th-century Siam with 21st-century European design, impressing guests with an outdoor pool and restaurants and bars that offer everything from Italian tapas to top shelf spirits (served in a sub-rosa speakeasy with city views). The dark and ambient lobby is a cool, calm escape from Bangkok’s sticky heat; think polished marble floors, soaring corniced ceilings and opulent oriental rugs. A theme that continues right up to the 24th floor, with the hotel’s dark wood, chesterfield-filled speakeasy, The Blind Pig.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms take inspiration from Thailand’s King Rama V, who is unanimously revered for expanding art and culture in the kingdom. You’ll find signs of old Siam, vintage leather cigar couches, intricately designed ceilings, and mirrors and gilded picture frames throughout. Located on the top six floors, the Yama Residence Rooms overlook Bangkok’s glittering skyline and are decked out in handsome dark woods with cream accents and come with marble bathrooms.
When it’s time to eat, head to the basement-level Medici for Italian (reservations are essential), Su Tha Ros for Thai and Le Salon in the lobby for traditional afternoon tea. Finish the night at the Speakeasy, an exclusive bar that occupies the entire 24th and 25th floors; guests and locals sip cocktails in private nooks and crannies, including the dapper cigar bar. The balconies have unobstructed views of Bangkok’s Blade Runner–esque skyline. A few floors below, there’s more equally titillating nightlife at the outdoor pool (adjacent to the petite but well-equipped fitness center); the Wet Bar serves the Muse’s signature caipirinha with small bites until 10 p.m.
In the Area
The Muse is surrounded by many of the city’s best shopping malls, including Central Chidlom, at the top of the street, and Siam Paragon, Centralworld, Siam Discovery and Gaysorn Plaza, all one stop off the highly efficient skytrain. Forget searching for restaurants: Bangkok’s street food is not to be missed. Cheap and delicious, Soi Langsuan has some of the best. Take a walk at midday, when Thais hit the streets in droves to procure the freshest kanom (snacks). Nearby Lumpini Park is a lush 142-acre oasis in the middle of concrete, although if you want to catch a Muay Thai boxing show, make sure to head to the new stadium Lumpini; it moved recently, and lots of the guidebooks still reference the old site.
How to Get There
My family and I stayed here recently, and we were thoroughly impressed by the quality of the hotel and the high standard of service displayed by the staff. The hotel has a classy vintage feel to it, and every staff member that we came in contact with demonstrated an exceptionally high standard of guest service and made sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. We would strongly recommend this property!
Go for the executive lounge (4.30pm to 6.30pm), it is at the roof top and you have a good view of the park behind the hotel. the drink and finger food are excellent.
Room (Good) : The room is spacious and come with bathtub. Only setback is that AC is loud.
Breakfast (OK): Standard cold and hot station with decent spread.
Service (Excellent): Staffs are friendly and will assist you if required.
Surrounding (Good) : There is a 7-11 opposite the hotel, a massage parlour just 2 block away from 7-11. A few nice cafes nearby and Starbucks.
Location (Good) : 5 minutes walk to station "Chit Lom" or you can take the hotel shuttle to the station.
Once you are at Chit Lom station, you can access easily to the Central World, Central
Chid Lom, Central Embassy and Gaysorn
This is a great hotel. It is well located with conveniently access to BTS Skytrain. I have stayed here two times now and the gracious service has always been great.
Specific mention to Oil (Concierge), very charming, attentive and so helpful.
I recommend this hotel as the staff always go out of their way to make the stay as comfortable as possible.
The best day of our entire holiday, it was our last day of our trip and we couldn't have experienced any better than this, absolutely amazing! So, here we go:
We've requested an early check-in the dat before we should arrive (we came with the night train from Suratthani and should arrive at 7AM), where we got an reply that the team would do their best. (We stayed here from the 4th of July until 5)
Well, they have done their best I can tell you! We arrived around 8AM and the hostess Mydear told us that our room was ready for us. On top of it all, she told us that we were the 'Muse of the day', which meant that we got an upgrade of our room and had other very special treatments that day (we were only one day there, checking out next day morning to go back home unfortunately, wished I could stay longer! ;) )
We were already very impressed by the '20 Chicago style that the hotel has and we got a room on the Executive floor with a stunning view on Lumpini park and buildings. Absolutely beautiful!
We chilled a bit at the pool on the 19th floor and around 5PM we went upstairs to the rooftopbar to drink a cocktail and enjoy the view. After our 1st cocktail we wanted to get the bill and go the the mall CentralWorld (5 minute walk, def go there if you're into big malls) and the staff told us that we got a special menu with drinks and bites which were complementary because we were guest of the day! Such a nice surprise and the food and cocktails were great, we didn't have dinner afterwards ;)
All with all, if you like luxury and want to be spoiled and have a great team to be at your service: go here!! The hotel is stunning, the service is great and location could not be better.
Thanks to all the team and especially Mydear who helped us through the check in.

Since the day I book till I check out from the room, every level of service and help which I required was beautifully and professionally executed. It is very impressive. They would help me to take care of my little boy while I am having my Breakfast with my wife or having drinks on the rooftop lounge.
