Wild’n’Free Diary is about seeking pleasure in every way. When it comes to accommodation, we are looking for heritage hotels, outstanding luxury hotels, Designers and Boutique hotels, and last but not least – FUN hotels! Yes, my friends, fun is important, and if you are looking for an amusing hotel in Bangkok, we have a tip for you – Hotel Muse Bangkok. There you’ll find a theatrical atmosphere, nice food, and fantastic service topped with the heartfelt hospitality. Let’s check Hotel Muse Bangkok Review, shall we?
Hotel Muse Bangkok’s Ambiance
From the outside, Hotel Muse Bangkok looks like any other modern building among skyscrapers. However, once you step into the lobby, you will notice graceful Euro-Asian design full of lush, playful decoration. Despite many ornaments, space remains open and neat.
The most enchanting detail for me was the arcades, which gave away baroque feel. Maybe the interior designers had an idea of presenting human’s best eras in one space. As always, the cultural meeting point is art, which is presented under the spotlight and scattered around the hotel.
The lighting is another aspect that makes Hotel Muse Bangkok even more outstanding. The neon blue color is giving some cyberpunk vibe when discrete yellow spotlights are making it sure, you will see all the details.
Check-in was quick and efficient, served with a platter of their mixed drinks. What a nice gesture, especially after being in hot tropical Bangkok streets, right? Having fun is the biggest priority in the Hotel Muse Bangkok. With that being said, expect affectionate staff to take you through the reception in no time. Our room was ready even before we finished our drinks. Lovely!
Rooms at Hotel Muse Bangkok will see you through everything that you might be expecting from the Boutique Hotel Accommodation. The typical layout of the room lets in plenty of natural light and has a spacious feel.
A unique feature is a glass between bathroom and bedroom, which gives you a chance to watch your spouse taking a bath 🙂 What? I told you Muse Hotel is a fun place at the beginning of this Hotel Muse Bangkok review!
Anyway, the most significant wow factor here in the room is undoubtedly a bathroom. Attractive black marble leaves the spotlight to the standing bathtub, and one another feature – the sink. Vivi fell in love with this oriental sink, which is a true purposeful art. Besides silk, some of Bangkok’s history is represented in the details of the classic European interior.
Amenities and Facilities
Ok, ok, take a breath and take this in – Hotel Muse Bangkok has a tinny fitness room and small, let’s say swimming pool. Well, it’s not actually appropriate for swimming, but it works like a charm for cooling down on hot days.
On the other hand, recreational space isn’t that important, with Lumpini Park just around the corner. There you can have a fabulous morning recreation like no other, and feel like a local. However, here at the Muse Hotel, they focus on something different than sports activity – Bar hopping and food. This area is full of cool bars and great restaurants, so the nightlife is alive. At the same time, why seek nightlife out of the house if you have it right there in your hotel.
In the room, you will find all the necessary amenities that will keep you fresh during your stay, including unisex scented body products. Neatly packaged are also the toothbrush, shower cap, and sewing kit. You know, to sew all your bad decisions from the last night…
Medici Kitchen & Bar
Medici Kitchen & Bar is an Italian restaurant serving traditional Italian cuisine. Apparently, it is quite famous among locals who are craving some real Italian food in Bangkok. Sadly, we didn’t have supper here due to our busy schedule. However, we made a promise to come back and listen to the live performance by the Fivera Opera.
Babette’s The Steakhouse
This American-retro styled steakhouse is the top-rated steakhouse in Bangkok. Here you can find aged finest cuts and fresh seafood. Besides the animal protein-filled menu, you can take a look around their walk-in cellar, and find the perfect pairing for your order.
The Saloon and Rooftop Bar
It doesn’t matter if you start your night at Muse’s famous bar or close it there. The point is to visit at least one, if not both, in-house bars. The first bar is situated on the 24th floor, where you will have a great view of Bangkok’s surroundings.
Though, I doubt you will have a moment to look around! The place is stylish, and waiters have these neat uniforms, imitating 1920’s gangsters. Yes, my friends, here is all about the prohibition era, with one minor change – alcohol and fun certainly aren’t prohibited.
The Saloon looks stunning. I can imagine having a small group of friends with neat whiskey and cigars while listening bouncy swing. Not only that, here they have a thing for craft cocktails. A mixologist can make a cocktail to your preferences that will suit your mood and taste.
Every “respectable” bar in the prohibition era had its speakeasy bar, so does this! Just ask your waiter about the hidden bar and follow his lead.
Second Muse bar is a speakeasy rooftop bar with a laid back atmosphere and showstopping view. The only thing that really disappointed was the lousy execution. I will write more about this speakeasy, next time.
Hotel Muse Bangkok Breakfast
As I said before, we haven’t had a chance to feast, but we enjoyed the self-service breakfast during our stay. Breakfast is served on the 19th floor, inside Babette’s The Steakhouse.
The breakfast menu took care of the hungry early birds that like cold cuts and cheese platter with salad or wholesome Asian options. Part of the self-service breakfast took care also of the fun-loving souls in need of fresh energy.
In this case, one could enjoy the Bloody-Good-Morning-Drink aka good old blood Mary, others are more into fresh tropic fruits. However, if the stomach can take the idea of detoxing with tasty seaweed soup, we encourage you to give it a try, as well.
Let’s not forget about the egg station, muesli offer with many bread toppings. The offer of prepared dishes is diverse and caters to European and Asian tastes.
Bangkok is a city like no other. Therefore your stay in Bangkok should be unforgettable and mood-boosting. At the Hotel Muse Bangkok, we felt relaxed and joyful at all times.
Truth be told, it is difficult to feel any other way when the environment is so creative. Are there any downsides for the Hotel Muse Bangkok review? I think only their speakeasy could be better designed, and yeah there is a lack of some of the essential facilities. Bigger swimming pool and gym would be great.
Well, as you can see this is totally different type of hotel than the last time when we introduced Mandarin Oriental Bangkok. Sure, the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok Hotel is all about heritage, prestige, and high-end culinary experience. On the other hand, Muse Hotel Bangkok is more about Fun, Chillout and Party.
