FuramaXclusive Asoke is the hotel choice Wife and Uncle chose when it comes to lodging in Bangkok.
I booked FuramaXclusive Asoke for 5 times. 5th was to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary.
Friends will know I do not stay in Pratunam area at all. Admittedly, my first few stay in Bangkok were all in Pratunam, because of internet and friends recommendation.
After talking to more Thai people and having friends who are more locally inclined. Uncle tend to stay away from that area.
Asok / Nana / Ploen Chit / Siam Area will be my choice.
FuramaXclusive Asoke caters to a range of guest. From Solo Travellers, Couples and Families.
In this image, building on the right is Terminal 21. And you can see BTS track across the road junction – quite close to Asok BTS Station and Sukhumvit MRT Station in my opinion.
FuramaXclusive Asoke is newer compared to the other FuramaXclusive Hotels in Bangkok.
Uncle have a habit of checking for stuffs especially in 4 and 5 star hotels. This is to see if they pay attention to details in their guest’s request, and Room amenities are worthy of the stars.
Uncle will always spot for –
- Coffee, Tea and Bar station.
- What’s inside Wardrobe and Work Desk
- Television Channels and Picture Quality
- Room Service
Kettle for hot water.
Ice Bucket and tong (Yes you can request for Ice)
Alcohol drinks / Soda Drinks / Oreo and Cashew Nuts (Non complimentary, as with all 4 and 5 star hotels)
As for me, the most important part to what a good and proper hotel is, will be details.
I appreciate simple thoughts, Iron and board are perfect for travellers like me and wife who cannot stand wearing creased clothing. Some people may say, “aiyah….it’s Thailand, so hot…just wear anything la, who will see???”
Uncle and Wife will see lor. Why do we care how other people see us? The more important point is how we view ourselves. We love wearing nicely ironed clothes out for shopping! So back to point I’m saying. Iron and Ironing board – Thumbs up.
Shoe horn and Brush are gentlemen essential. It may not look like many guest will use it.
However, for those who does use it will know how important for a 4-5 Star Hotel room to have it.
Umbrella is one thing which is not really common in room. But having one in the room helps a lot since rainy season is terrible in Thailand. Having it placed in Wardrobe makes a lot of sense. Take and go!
Not a fan of Bathtub but wife loves it. Uncle concern on Hot/Cold water and water pressure. In terms of lighting and toilet smell. FuramaXclusive Asoke passed all test.
Rooftop: Gym / Pool / Sauna
Gym facilities looks alright. I’m going to try to do a review update.
As for pool…it’s more of a bathshell than pool. No time to hang around Rooftop, but i doubt this will be my favourite spot to chill. Except for the gym.
Pressreader – For your reading pleasure
I thought this is fantastic. Do note this download function is only available within the Wifi premises of FuramaXclusive. I downloaded a few magazines in case i’m caught in a situation where 3G data is unavailable. Nice!
Overall my experience was superb. In fact i have to say the overall staff level of attitude and service quality were highly commendable. Exceeded my expectations.
From Reception staff till housekeeping. They have displayed professionalism and pride of working for FuramaXclusive Asoke.
I wish to thank Miss Panan and Mr Chester. Very kind of them to accommodate to my special request.
Wife is looking forward to staying in FuramaXclusive Asoke again!
