December 12, 2018: Hotel Nikko Bangkok, operated by Japanese luxury hotel group Nikko Hotels International, will open at Thonglor on Bangkok’s tourist and business centre of Sukhumvit Road on January 16, 2019.
The hotel is now taking bookings. Special rates start from THB 5,200++ for a superior room, inclusive of breakfast for two, for stays from January 16 and valid until June 30, 2019.
Grand Tower Inn Group, founded in 1985 initially as an operator of serviced apartments, owns Hotel Nikko Bangkok. The group has traditionally served mostly a Japanese clientele, with around 90 percent of the guest profile from the corporate sector, and 10 percent from the leisure market.
Retaining a strong Japanese identity, the hotel service style will blend respectful Japanese hospitality with the traditional warm and friendly Thai welcome. “We are all very excited now that our opening date has been confirmed, and we feel that our Thonglor location, with its huge mix of leisure attractions and its large Japanese community, is perfect for our style of courteous Japanese ‘omotenashi’ hospitality,” said Mr Jo Sato, the hotel’s general manager.
Located at 27 Sukhumvit Soi 55, within easy walking distance of the BTS Skytrain Thonglor station, Hotel Nikko Bangkok is a five-star establishment with 301 guestrooms and suites, including 10 extended stay rooms featuring a kitchenette.
