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
It was a great moment to coming back and it's my 9th time to stay at the Vie Hotel Bangkok; its great to see that the renovations to the Vie Lounge and reception, its looking great and comfortable.
The staff always greet me with a warm smile or a hand shake to welcome me back, that's why I love stay in VIE hotel.
While the check in, the welcome drink is good and make me feel relax, the check in process was fast and smooth.
The location of Vie hotel is good, it's near the BTS station and you can walk to MBK or Siam within 10mins. The hotel also provide tuk tuk service to drive you to MBK, Siam and partunam.
The breakfast served each morning on the 11th floor and it's delicious and have many choices you can eat of the worldwide food.
The facilities in VIE hotel were good, I had visit to the Vie Spa and it's a good place to relax and the Spa so special as they are clean, comfortable and with shower facilities as well. It's also good for sunbathing in the pool as the view was pretty nice.
I would like to take this chance to thank all the staff at the Vie from the front desk, the house keeping team and the porter team as they will always give us a morning greeting, they are very polite and can feel their hard working.
I would like to also make a big thanks to bulter team, thanks for their arrangement.
We have stayed for 6 days. The hotel is just located less than a min to BTS station. Also we can walk to Siam area in 10 mins. This is very convenience to us. The hotel staffs are very nice and helpful. The French restaurant do a very nice menu. We can book the restaurant with half price. The price is relatively budget. We will stay again if we go to Bangkok again.
We stayed for 4 days at this wonderful luxorious hotel. The room was huge with a view to the city, the beds were very comfortable and we had both a shower and a bath. Service was excellent with attention to the small things, like free mini bar and fresh cookies every day, as well as selection of fresh fruits and vegtebales shakes on breakfast (which had a wide selection of both local and western foods, we thought it was worth the pay).
The location is very convenient - only 10 min walk from Siam square and less than a min to the BTS train. The hotel is also surrounded by few bars and restaurants so finding something to eat was easy.
I have stayed at the Vie Hotel Bangkok on two occasions. First time I stayed was due to the well-appointed gymnasium on the premises. The second time I stayed is because I felt there would be no other option that would be able to delight me as much as I was delighted on my first stay.
The location is fantastic, the facilities are second to none and the staff is the best people you could hope to have taking care of you. Genuine and authentic friendly service at every point.
Rooms are fantastic, clean and spacious making it a pleasant retreat away from the bustling streets of Bangkok.
I truly felt like an honored guest during my stay and look forward to visiting my friends at the VIE again on my next visit.
P.S. Make sure you enjoy the wonderful pool area during your stay and enjoy a craft beer from the lobby bar after your busy day.
The service and efficiency of the hotel has gone bad. The air conditioning of the room I was staying went faulty twice and had to be fixed. The hotel did not apologize or offer a different room inspite of the problem recurring. This was my third or fourth visit to the hotel in the last five years and the service standards have gone down. Inspite of letting the hotel know of my special dietary requirements - I am a vegetarian- the hotel did not offer vegetarian options for breakfast and buffet lunch. Only after a complaint, the hotel offered few vegetarian options for the last 2 days. If you are a vegetarian, consider staying at another hotel as Vie only offers, pototo or salad for their buffet lunch. Only positive of the hotel is the location which is right outside the Ratchtatewi bts.
