Aloft Bangkok Sukhumvit 11

The first time I stepped into Aloft Bangkok Sukhumvit 11 was in 2012, a year after it opened. This year I returned for two nights in October to attend the Project Aloft Star 2016 finals which was held at WXYZ Bar. Sofie Retief from Singapore walked away as champion amongst the five finalists.  Located in the busy street of Sukhumvit 11, much has not changed since. The welcoming familiar sight of the steps that illuminate at night from the main road to the lobby and the friendly staff and spacious lobby brought back great memories four years back.

I was put up in an Urban Room which was spacious and comfortable. The desk was equipped with two universal electrical sockets. The room offers plug and play with a connectivity station that recharges gadgets and links to the 42″ LCD TV. The desk had a view overlooking the buildings in the neighbourhood.
