The conventional wisdom is that the facilities make the hotel. In this instance that wisdom is turned on its head and it is the absence of facilities that make Luxx great. Centrally located near the Skytrain, this is the ideal place for singles and couples to use as their home from home.
There is not much in the way of common areas at this hotel. There is the all white lobby with concierge desk and a small eating area with a DVD library. You get a nice en-suite room and that is all your lot. So what, I hear you ask, makes this hotel special out of the hundreds of others in Bangkok? Well, let us tell you. Sometimes we just want to get on with our stuff without dealing with smiling/frowning staff, or sit in a large breakfast room, or walk through crowded lobbies every time we go back to our rooms. Maybe this is a syndrome - let's call it 'hotel fatigue'. No chance of hotel fatigue here. You will be lucky to see another guest during your stay as you slip in and out through the small lobby. Breakfast can be brought to your room on a tray. This the perfect hotel for a romantic liaison and rumour has it the hotel is favoured by TV starlets for a discrete assignation.
There are four choices of room: Compact Small (20sqm), Compact Large (24sqm), Studio (34sqm) and Studio (50sqm). All rooms are en-suite, have big flat screen TVs and, rather curiously, they all have free-standing Japanese bath tubs positioned so you can watch TV while having a soak. We say give the tub a go, especially if you are lucky enough to have a young starlet to scrub your back.
