The Arte Hotel is a brand new property which opened in Oct 2016 that caught my attention while planning my Songkran/Thai new year April 2017 trip.Location on Soi 19 was perfect for me, I was looking for a quiet area not to far from the action.Far enough to get assure yourself a quiet night's sleep but not not too far to make it inconvenient.They also have an on demand shuttle tuk tuk to the main road if you're feeling a bit lazy.The king size bed was very comfy, Flatscreen TV offered a good selection of channels, air conditioning was efficient though there wasn't any remote for it available, the sofa and table are next to a floor to ceiling window offering views over the Bangkok Skyline, mini-bar wasn't the biggest in size but still had space to add your own drinks to the already available mix, On top of which you could find the usual complimentary free bottles of water with boiler & mix of coffee/tea, the bathroom and shower are a little tight for space but everything is brand new and very clean, room also offers lots of power points to charge your electronic gadgets, a safe of moderate size is found in the closet just big enough to fit a 13" laptop, the free Wi-Fi works for up to two of your devices offers at very decent speeds and last but not least no issues whatsoever with bringing back bargirls back up to your room, The Ambassador Hotel Bangkok is certified guest friendly!
Initial impressions arriving were very good, Lobby is spotless, nice overall oved their swimming pool area on the 9th floor with unobstructed view over the city, great place to chill with bar service, good lounge area both indoors and outdoors.
Personally my experience at the Ambassador Hotel was quite good, first the Superior Tower Wing room looked just the same than in the pictures from their website.
Secondly At 35 sq.m the place feels quite roomy while having generally remained in good condition considering the date of construction.
Should you ever feel the need to explore the red-light districts of Nana Plaza or Soi Cowboy these are both conveniently located only 10 and 15 minutes walk away.
The Ambassador is large old-school hotel that was initially built around 40 years ago with around 800 rooms and suites spread over two wings, one old and one new.
