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
This is my “home away from home” every time I visit Bangkok and I must say is amazing. The staff are extremely attentive and focused on the customer, remembering little things about guests and always being friendly without being overbearing. Food is fresh and great quality from breakfast with a wide selection to nice dinner options...again attention to detail is remarkable. Speakeasy bar on level 24 has a great atmosphere with nice views of the city. Find the secret door to level 25! Only area to improve is the coffee which isn’t always consistent. Rooms are spacious and nicely appointed. Overall great value and the staff really do make the difference.
Nice room and nice decoration for the whole hotel. The pool has a fantastic view.
Breakfast was good, located on 19th floor but the restaurant quite small. The lady wearing black dress at the restaurant desk on the morning 10/11 was very nice and helpful but i can not remember her name.
The hotel provide complimentary shuttle service to Chitlom BTS.
The staff was helpful and friendly. I got checked in by Ms. Suda who was very courteous.
Special thanks to the Concierge team for their helpful, especially Ms. AOY and Mr. Vee.
Definitely comeback for my next trip to Thailand.
I was there, end of october, for one night, with a friend. I was very happy of all service. From check in, check out and the nice drinks, served by Nut, in the rooftop bar. A small swimming pool invited you, for relaxing.A good location, close to Chit Lom Bts station and Lumphini Park.
