The Warehouse Hotel embraced the drab grey interior of an actual former warehouse and turned it into their theme. The cold, unfinished feel somehow works out into smart rooms with an urban vibe.

Built in the mid 20th century, the building served as rundown apartments until the current owners took over in 2013. Once the place was gutted, someone must have either ran short on cash or decided that exposed cement could be chic. They knocked down parts of floors, added industrial-style handrails and hooked up a glass-walled elevator that allows you to see the cranks cranking.

Spacious and well-kept guestrooms are done up with polished concrete floors and construction-themed signs on the walls. Lightwood accents provide a welcome hint of anything that’s not grey. Soft beds have quality linens and a small desk sits in the corner. Fridges, flatscreen TVs, air-con, safes and plain hot water bathrooms come standard. The cool rooms—in style and temperature—will be appreciated after the Bangkok heat.

Dark-grey drapes can be moved to reveal wide glass doors opening on to small balconies, ensuring that plenty of sunlight is available for those times when it feels like you’re in, um, a warehouse. The priciest corner rooms bag you a lot more space and expanded floor-to-wall windows. Views are limited to some of the neighbouring old buildings. Traffic noise isn’t much of a problem thanks to the side-street location.

An easily overlooked rooftop terrace isn’t a bad place to relax with a cold drink. On the open-sided ground floor, Forklift Cafe serves Thai and Western food along with coffee and other drinks in a spacious lounge with sleek yellow sofas that you definitely wouldn’t find on a work site. Security is strong thanks to two-dozen CCTV cameras feeding straight to reception.

Plenty of space to relax.

The young and welcoming staff members who showed us around spoke very good English, and a computer is available to guests in the lobby. WiFi works okay here, but the signal may get patchy as you head upstairs.

The location puts you in the heart of a neighbourhood with some heritage houses and the always-fun Phra Nakorn Bar around the corner. The Grand Palace and Khao San Road are both a 15-minute walk away. Some phenomenal eats can be scored at nearby Phraeng Phuthon Square and surrounds. There’s no public transport in this area apart from the river and canal boats that can be caught at piers within walking distance. Tuk tuks are always ready and waiting.

If you like this area and don’t mind spending a little more for a larger room without the industrial theme, Feung Nakorn Balcony is another good option set in a converted school building. At The Warehouse, beware that rates posted on the hotel’s website are much higher than what you’ll find on booking sites or as a walk-in.
