Bangkok ~ Central Point Pratunam Hotel

My Raya holiday was well-spent!
As said on my last post, I went to Bangkok for a week with my parents and brother.
The holiday was really awesome!
Hope you all had the same awesome one.


Before my trip, I have been asked where do I stay this time in Bangkok.
I usually book my stay in Bangkok with the boutique hotels because it was only 3 days and 2 nights stay, also the prices from the boutique hotels are much cheaper.
Since this time I am spending holiday with my parents, so we booked a proper hotel as we think they will feel more comfortable.  
After doing some researches with my brother, we decided to go with the Centre Point Hotel which located at Pratunam area. 


This is not our first time staying at Centre Point Hotel.
We been here 4 years ago when we traveled to Bangkok and Pattaya with the tour agent.
Obviously the first impression for us was very good, if not we wouldn't want to come back as there are so many other choices in Bangkok, also located at the same area. 


We booked 2 deluxe rooms; one for my parents, one for me and my brother sharing.
Total we paid for 6 nights, 2 rooms at THB 28000, about RM 2800 plus.


We have asked for the connecting rooms which both our rooms are connected by a private door.


Kitchenette equipped with fridge, microwave, electric kettle, and simple tableware. 


It has a spacious space inside the room with hardwood floor.
Also a small flat screen cable TV with different kinds of channels.
MTV channel is my everyday favourite! Lol


During our first time visit, all furniture inside the room was in wood colour.
They have now renovated the room by painting the furniture in all white.
It looks nicer than before, yet the furniture still look a bit old.


The bathroom.
One thing to be highlighted about the room is it has a very strong water pressure!
Trust me, you will want to take the shower day and night, especially the hot weather in Bangkok can easily drive you crazy.


The view from my room, definitely not the good one. 
If you can get the view of the swimming pool, I think would be much better!


After the room review, let's move on to the facilities and locations. 


The hotel has a big space at the lobby with all well-maintained furniture.  


The lobby always full of people because it is so comfortable after a long day walk.


The hotel also provides drinks all day long.
Ice-water, tea, or coffee, up to your choices!


Sitting at the lobby with a cold drink and nice scenery, just syok!


The hotel also has a beautiful outdoor lobby.



Nice decorations outside the hotel.


Another plus point about this hotel is they have a side entrance which makes it easily accessible to 7-11, just located at the right side of the side entrance.


Centra Point has all the standard facilities that the other hotels offer.


Swimming pool is a must for me during the long holiday.
I swim every morning before the day starts.
It is a salt swimming pool, so don't freak out if it is your first time (like me lol)


Missed out their gym room because I forgot about my sport shoes.
What a waste!!!


The breakfast restaurant is next to the swimming pool.
Our room rate do not include any breakfast deal as my dad prefer the simple breakfast from outsides.


When you walk out from the main entrance, there is a good and clean massage place just right opposite the hotel.
It only costs RM20 for 1 hour foot massage.
It's near! It's cheap! That's why it has triggered my addiction to have at least one massage every single day when I was in Bangkok :D


Outside of the hotel.


The hotel is only 2 minutes walk to the Shibuya mall, where you can get the McDonald (pork burger!) and Starbucks.


1 minute walk from Shibuya mall to the morning market where you can also get some street foods from here.


One of the best thing to stay at Centre Point Hotel is the wholesales Platinum mall is just about 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel by crossing over a bridge. 


Overall, we have a pleasant stay at Centre Point Hotel.
Despite of the furniture in the room is a bit old, I think the location, staffs, services and facilities from this hotel have win them all!


My Ratings:
Rooms: 7/10
Facilities: 8.5/10
Locations: 9.5/10
Staff friendliness: 9/10
