Room review of the Grand Swiss Sukhumvit in Bangkok

Grand Swiss Sukhumvit 11 by Compass Hospitality is located right off Sukhumvit Road and is just a few steps away from the Nana BTS Station in Bangkok. Don’t be confused when you try to Google this hotel though because it also goes by some other different names: Grand Swiss Hotel Bangkok, Hotel Grand Swiss Sukhumvit, Grand Swiss Sukhumvit, Grand Swiss Hotel, etc. At the end of the day, it’s THAT Grand Swiss at 155/23-24 Sukhumvit Soi 11.

We were lucky enough to have our room upgraded for free again during our stay in Bangkok! And, again, as always, we very much enjoyed our stay.

Quick review of my experience at Philippine Airlines PR313

Just like any other short haul morning flights (first one in the morning at that), our aircraft was small in size — an A320. The crew was warm and friendly at that hour of the day, and I was still pretty groggy and zombie-like from getting only 30 minutes of sleep that night.

I remembered a lot of details though:
