What is it that draws Filipinos to Bangkok? Food and shopping, though many will put the latter on the top of the priority list. Whatever it is that takes us to the Thai city, the place to stay should be conveniently close to where we need to be. Luckily, some hotels—good hotels— are close to both.

Be it for leisure or business, the 4-star Novotel Bangkok on Siam Square is well situated making it very popular choice of hotel by visitors in Bangkok. Style, comfort and convenience is what the hotel can offer—in all aspects.

Retail therapy will be an accomplishment. This Novotel sits on a chic shopping zone with stores and malls a few steps away. You can drop the shopping bags from your preferred local stores or favorite luxury brands back at hotel and head out for more boutique hopping.

Dining? The hotel has restaurants you can indulge in, including Lok Wah Hin, a Chinese restaurant that has been voted as the best in Bangkok for fourteen years. Or if you wish, you can venture into the neighborhood’s multitude of culinary offerings.

Rest is essential as recreation, and Novotel has the relaxing cocoon for you to cool down and rejuvenate at the end of each hectic day. While each of its 450 spacious rooms and suites (can sleep a family of four, two adults and two kids) is fitted with the modern amenities any world traveler yearns for, the plush bed is a real treat. The memory foam hugs you and will lull you to sleep.  Or you can opt to burn off the calorie intake for the day at the gym or soothe tired muscles at the day spa before calling it a day. Your choice.

What's exciting with Novotel today is the recently-renovated lobby and deluxe rooms. Hip and ingenuous, the spaces sport a contemporary look attractive –and oh, so fashionable— enough to win you a big audience on your social media posts. At the lobby is a working desk lined with swinging chairs, a bar designed like any popular watering holes in the city, it even integrates a pool table and a children’s play area. The entire space is brilliantly planned.

In the deluxe rooms, an accent wall displays the artistic rendering of mural-sized Bangkok postcards that serves as the bed’s backdrop, and perhaps a visual map pointing you to city attractions you should not miss, like the famed Chao Phraya River and the magical city skyline at sunset.
