Tel: +662 695 4242

Price: from USD$100++

Architect: IAW by Khun Vitoon Kunalankarn

Interiors: IAW by Khun Vitoon Kunalankarn


Design: An fine example of modern architecture, ie. brown facade, linear lines, the requisite bamboo landscaping… It is “stylish” in the sense that you can see such designs in Thailand and maybe Singapore. Yet, the sense of design thought and details definitely bubble through.

Mood: Quiet and perhaps deep. The dark hotel corridors are like that of the Dolphin Hotel mentioned in Haruki Murakami's Dance Dance Dance. The place sure puts you in the mood for some Raymond Chandler detective work.

Perfect for: A quiet Bangkok holiday. You are not here for Soi Nana's go-go bars right?

Guests: The tasteful Taiwanese are out. There are quite some locals, enjoying a quiet drink in this quiet Soi.

Around the hotel: Suan Luam night market and Lumphini park. Ask how to get to Jay Dee(?) fried chicken.

Gripes: The hotel is located deep in the Sois and the average cabby will find it challenging to locate. To not lose yourself in translation, jot down the hotel phone number such that cabby can call for more directions.

What's special: The bedroom and living room are actually 2 separate rooms. Hence, you will not be getting the typical “1-room-fits-all” hotel experience. Tenface does exude the feel of a boutique service apartment.

You are probably a world-worthy traveller who has experienced a variety of city hotels, from 6 star franchises to capsule surprises. Tenface might offer you a much different experience. Is this the place for some quiet contemplation? Is there a metaphysical Murakami quicksand at the end of the deep dark corridor? Why is there no one swimming in the pool? Rumour has it that David Lynch will be shooting his next film at Tenface.
