Hotel JAL City Bangkok, the 13th JAL City property to be operated by Okura Nikko Hotel Management, one of the largest hotel operators headquartered in Japan, will open on May 8, 2020. Located on Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok’s Thonglor tourist and business district and currently operating as “Hotel Verve Bangkok”, the property will be rebranded as “Hotel JAL City Bangkok”.
The hotel is now taking bookings, offering special opening rates from THB 2,800++ for standard room, inclusive of complimentary breakfast for two, for stays from May 8 and valid until July 31, 2020.
Hotel JAL City Bangkok is situated adjacent to Hotel Nikko Bangkok, which opened in January 2019. Thonglor BTS Skytrain station is just a three-minute walk away. Thonglor is an area extending north and south from Soi Sukhumvit 55, commonly known as Thonglor Road, in the Wattana district of central Bangkok. The area has long been home to many Japanese and other expatriates as well as wealthy Thais. The Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre and Queen Sirikit Convention Center, along with multinational restaurants, bars, community-type malls and international hospitals, are all nearby, making it a prime location for both business and leisure. “We are delighted to be able to introduce the Hotel JAL City brand outside Japan for the first time,” said Mr Jo Sato, the hotel’s cluster general manager. “We’re expecting it to bring broader recognition of our hotel brand in Thailand. We aim to provide services that take advantage of the convenient and strategic location of the new hotel.
Hotel JAL City Bangkok comprises 324 chic and relaxing guest rooms, each with a standard area of around 28 square meters. In-room TVs offer nine Japanese TV channels, including commercial channels. All bathrooms are equipped with bathtubs. Spacious 56-square-meter rooms that are suitable for long stays offer bathrooms with separate shower booths and a separate toilet. Guests will be able to use the roof top swimming pool at the adjacent Hotel Nikko Bangkok. The restaurant on the second floor of the hotel will serve breakfast from 5 a.m. for the convenience of guests departing early. Three meeting rooms will be available.
The hotel is the first property outside Japan to operate under the Hotel JAL City brand, and the fourth property in Thailand that will be operated by Okura Nikko Hotel Management, following The Okura Prestige Bangkok (opened May 2012), Hotel Nikko Bangkok (opened January, 2019), and Hotel Nikko Amata City Chonburi (scheduled to open in 2021).
