The Holiday Inn Bangkok Ploenchit is out of expectations on two counts.  First, a typical impression of a Holiday Inn is that it is functional but nondescript.  The second has to do with the façade of the building. It is concrete, grey, and drab. The Holiday Inn Bangkok Ploenchit on the inside is sleek, freshly contemporary, with installations and ambient lighting accentuating its modernity. Have a look.  First, the façade of the hotel.

The grey concrete face masks a modern, hip interior.

The rooms are well-designed, and quite plush.

The pool is small but quite popular with guests.

The gym is in the basement and hence is a little dark, but the equipments are new and adequate.

Overall, the hotel has the hip factor without being overly pretentious. And the service is fantastic. The location cannot be better, with the Ploenchit BTS literarily at the door of the hotel, and the shopping shrines of Central World, Siam Paragon-Siam Center-Siam Discovery Center trinity, and the popular MBK all within walking distance.

It looks nice but the facade looks kinda of old. The opp hotel look better of course it comes with a higher price tag.
