Black granite floors and dark wood wall paneling give the first-floor reception area and lounge an opulent, contemporary look softened by a trickling water feature wall and plant-print curtains. Low-slung sofas in moss-green dotted with throw cushions in dusky orange and royal purple comprise the muted color palette. The padded walls seem to add height to the public spaces, and silk upholstery designed by Jim Thompson adds a luxe layer of texture. The property manages to break from the cookie-cutter design hotel mold with a mature and refined personality.
Bed and Bath
The larger-than-average guestrooms are embellished with curtains designed by Jim Thompson and bed runners and padded headboards done in shimmering silks of muted sunset hues. Paintings from the owners’ private collection — serene landscapes, galloping horses and the like — adorn the walls. All bathrooms come with a separate bathtub, while Grand Duplex Suites feature Jacuzzi tubs and bath amenities from Bvlgari’s Thé Blanc collection.
The short and sweet menu at La Vie features French-inspired dishes made with ingredients such as Hokkaido scallops, foie gras and tiger prawns. At the Yellow Tail Sushi Bar you’ll find a long sushi counter and decorative sake barrels. The Vie Spa blends Asian and Western wellness philosophies; try the signature vanilla pure organic oil aromatherapy treatment. Scheduled fitness classes are offered at the gym, while the outdoor rooftop pool allows you to cool off with skyline views.
In the Area
A number of malls are located within a 10-minute walk of the hotel, including Siam Center, which focuses on high-end local design, CentralWorld, MBK and Siam Discovery. Nearby, the Bangkok Art and Culture Center showcases contemporary arts, while fine arts and artifacts are displayed at Suan Pakkad Palace, a royal residence turned museum. To fully appreciate the fabrics in the hotel rooms, drop by the Jim Thompson House and learn more about the famed silk merchant’s life and the traditional art of silk weaving.
How to Get There
I was upgraded to a corner suite which was very kind. It was bigger than my first flat! As with the other hotels I stayed at every staff member was very good at their job and really made a difference. It may be the culture but I found this a great positive in Thailand. I visited Coco walk for a few beers and whilst it was noisy and crowded was interesting. The breakfast was really good. I booked direct with the hotel as at the time they were cheaper than any other. My only minor criticism is that they don't advertise their happy hour in the two bars. I am not a fan of expensive drinks but the reduction makes them good value given the high quality of the hotel. I will return.
The Vie Hotel is my constant home in Bangkok. Everyone makes you feel welcome from the time you check in until you check out. Sincerity resides in every staff’s heart. A warm smile greets you every morning. Honesty is also a trait I have proven with their staff. In a rush to catch my flight, I left my cell phone in their hotel limousine. I called the front desk from the airport and they made all efforts to cal the driver and deliver ny phone back to me. Thank you Vie Hotel. You are the best!
My 2 sisters & I visited Bangkok last January of 2019. BOY!!!! It was great,I don't know if it's the Company or the place, maybe both:) Yes, I highly recommend Vie Hotel, for their decadent breakfast spread, for 5 days. The staff really are outstandingly accommodating. Chocolates everyday:) I highly recommend this hotel, plus I met a very nice young lady named Aoiy Nunnapas. She is very polite and friendly. KUDOS VIE HOTEL STAFF! P.S. Love your Tuk Tuk - sorry if I butchered the spelling!
My second stay at this hotel and it won't be the last. The executive suite has all the amenities you expect from a 5-star property with excellent service to match. Within walking distance to MBK Mall, this is the perfect spot to fit in all your shopping needs. The hotel also provides complimentary tuk-tuk drop off to major shopping sites within the local area too. Be sure to take the breakfast option - you won't be disappointed!
It was my second time staying at VIE Hotel just last weekend, and the hotel never disappoints!
Decided to stay at the hotel again after a wonderful visit 2 years ago. We arrived early in the morning but was accorded early check-in and was even given a room upgrade! We were upgraded to a corner suite (Executive Suite) which was really spacious, clean and comfortable. Although the decor and the furniture may require freshening up, it is still classy and very much comfortable.
The only weird thing that happened was that we were asked to transfer to another room on the same day (we were out so we only found out about the request to change rooms at night). So we had to change to another corner suite in the middle of the night! No complaints though, as the room had an even better view!
Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Breakfast on both days were good, spread and quality were ok. Tried the Japanese restaurant YTSB (sadly there was no wagyu beef available) and the French restaurant La VIE. Both were great! The revitalized and renovated Piano Bar was good too! The gym is well equipped although the jacuzzi and steam room needs an upgrade (I think).
Overall, this stay was really amazing due to impeccable service rendered by the team at VIE Hotel Bangkok. Affordable luxury indeed.
