Ten years ago, most Bangkok lodgings were either big luxury hotels or grimy backpacker dens. Things have changed, thanks to a string of new small-scale properties. Seven, one of the latest, occupies a town house on a quiet street in the happening Sukhumvit neighborhood. A collaboration between two Thai designers and a cutting-edge London graphic arts firm, the hotel’s interiors include six guest rooms individually decorated with murals inspired by Buddhist philosophy. In contrast, furnishings are clean and spare—crisp white linens, angular tables and chairs. The atmosphere is more like a pied-à-terre than a hotel: guests receive cell phones to use during their stay, plus a tip sheet on the most buzzed-about bars and restaurants in town.
Seven Design Hotel is a small 5-star boutique hotel neatly tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in central Bangkok just 5 minutes away from Phrom Phong BTS skytrain station, Asok MRT underground station and various major sights and scenes. This privately owned home-away-from-home gem sets forth a new experience in hotel accommodation in Bangkok with exceptionally original and stylish design, charming service, attention to detail as well as uniquely Thai concept.
Seven, which consists of six couture rooms in six different colours (yellow, pink, green, orange, blue and purple) and a red multifunctional 7th Space - The 7th Heaven Bar/Gallery/Library/Reception, was immaculately created by its young Thai owner Pylin Jane Sanguanpiyapand and her incredible design team. Inspiration for this small and stylish 5-star Bangkok Boutique hotel was drawn from ancient Thai art and the deep-rooted Thai tradition of relating each day of the week to a specific god of the planets, as in ancient Indian astrology, each of which has a particular colour.
