The Continent - New Bangkok Hotel

Jump to last reply

I just visited one of Bangkok's newest hotels, The Continent, which just soft opened on the 10th (formal opening is set for 12/12/12). It was scheduled to be a Ramada, but the owner changed their mind at the last minute and decided to go independent. The location is just a few steps from the Asoke intersection, so it's close to both the Skytrain and subway, as well as Terminal 21.

Like Riva Surya, The Continent claims five stars although it's not really in the same class as the Oriental, Penn or FS. It's a tall thin building, with just seven rooms per floor. The rooms are a bit small, but nicely laid out, with all the amenities, although it's perhaps worth noting that most rooms don't have a bath-tub.

Like most new high-rise hotels, there's lots going on at the top. A lounge covers the two top-most floors, with the pool (a very tiny pool) and gym on the floors below that. The main restaurant is on the 35th floor.

I've posted photos and some more observations on one of my blogs:

Note that there's a pretty good deal on for the soft opening, at 50% off which puts it around $75 a night. You can get the deal directly or through Agoda (you might even get a better price from Agoda).
