If you’re after a modern-style room in a ritzy part of Bangkok for a lot less cash than you’ll part with at the area’s big-name hotels, Luxx XL Langsuan is worth considering. A safe bet for couples who appreciate comfort and style, the minimalist midrange hotel is within walking distance of both Siam Square and Silom Road.




Giant-size front doors.

The tastefully done modern-urban design incorporates high ceilings, lots of glass and dark-grey polished concrete with clean lines and smooth slate accents balanced by warm hardwood floors and trim. Given its discreet road entrance, Luxx XL could be easily mistaken for one of the area’s many high-end condominiums. The place would also fit seamlessly into pricier parts of Tokyo.

Available in five different types and reached by a shiny lift, the minimalist theme carries into 53 guestrooms. We peeped in at the “studio” and found it soothing and comfy, with a wall-size window overlooking a patch of greenery. The bed was very soft and the bathroom outfitted with slate walls and a rainshower behind a glass partition. At 33 square metres, there’s ample space to store your bounty from a Siam Square shopping spree.

Rooms get bigger and the views improve as you go up the price scale, topping out with a “Suite XL” that bags you a separate living room with extended windows overlooking the cityscape. At a minimum, all rooms are equipped with air-con, desk, LCD TV with DVD player and high-end speakers, electronic safe, minibar and coffee/tea facilities. Much of this is stowed in elegant wooden cabinets to preserve the uncluttered feel.

Luxx XL boasts more common spaces than we’d expect for a midrange hotel, including a spacious ground-floor lounge with several sofas, large library and garden. Surrounded by a handful of loungers, umbrellas and trees, the swimming pool’s stone tile floor makes it unique. It’s too small for swimming laps but should be fine for a dip. Given all of the space, the lack of a small fitness centre is conspicuous.

Not too crowded on this day.

You can save a couple of hundred baht by passing on the basic breakfasts served in a second-floor cafe. A buffet breakfast would be nice but we guess it’s necessary to accept some drawbacks for the luxurious accommodation at midrange rates. The well-dressed staff members who showed us around were very polite and welcoming.

Lang Suan is a quiet and unusually spacious (for Bangkok) thoroughfare in an area where many wealthy businesspeople and foreign embassy workers live. Ratchadamri BTS station and Lumpini Park are both a five-minute walk away, while Siam Square and Silom will take around 15 minutes on foot. You’ll find several upscale Thai, Korean, Japanese and Western restaurants near the hotel.

Given this coveted location and the sophisticated ambiance, Luxx XL offers solid value for money. Look no further if you want to feel like a big shot without shelling out considerably more cash for the St Regis or Four Seasons, both just around the corner. If you’re used to five-star hotels, Luxx XL’s top-end rooms might get you more bang for your baht.

We found that rates on the hotel’s website were about the same as those on Agoda and other booking sites. If Luxx XL is a bit too pricey but you like the design, the smaller sister property, Luxx Boutique Hotel, has a similar design but no swimming pool for around 500 baht less. It’s located just off Silom Road, a couple of stops down the skytrain line.
