[Travel] U-Tiny Boutique Home Suvarnabhumi Bangkok

Video

Usually I will try a top 10 ranked local hotel (Not under any international chain and manage by locals.) based on TripAdvisor ranking when I visit a country for the 1st time. (Hotel Icon for Hong Kong-Rank 2, Dandy Hotel TianMu for Taiwan-Rank 3 and Hotel Ryumeikan for Tokyo-Rank 2.)  So for my recent Bangkok trip, I choose U-Tiny Boutique Home Suvarnabhumi Bangkok which is currently rank 8 on TripAdvisor. So how was it?


A quick tour round the room.

What I like about the hotel:

  • Convenient. (Near airport and complimentary airport transfer. Additional pickup from Lat Krabang station at night chargeable at 100THB or about SG$3.87.)
  • New place and facilities.
  • Homely feel.
  • Nice public area. (Lobby, Living Room, Lawn and Pool etc.)
  • Friendly staffs.
  • Well prepared family style meals.
  • In house massage service available. (Highly recommended!)
  • Super spacious and comfortable rooms.
  • Free WIFI!

Things to improve:

  • TV reception not good. In room antenna needed a lot of adjustment. Gave up and relied on my trusty tablet instead.

[Travel] Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge The Private Room at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3

Standard

For those who have been following this site, you will be aware that I flew with Singapore Airlines A380 Suites to Hong Kong on 25 January 2016. (Monday) It was a great experience as always and I will be writing about it here.

First, let’s talk about check-in. Checking-in for Singapore Airlines Suites and First Class can be done within Changi Airport Terminal 3 check-in rows. However, there is a separate check-in reception located next to Changi Airport Terminal 3. You need to walk to end of terminal, exit and walk to next building or drive there directly.

As a passenger on premium cabin class (Business, First and Suites.), lounge is standard entitlement. However, lounge for Singapore Airlines’ First class and Suites in Changi Airport Terminal 3 is different. It is called The Private Room which is located deep in Changi Airport Terminal 3’s SilverKris Lounge. After walking through dedicated immigration counter for Singapore Airlines First Class and Suites passengers, you will be at airside which is not too far from SilverKris Lounge. At reception of SilverKris Lounge, staff will receive you and lead you to The Private Room upon presentation of Golden Ticket. Walking past Business Class and First Class section of SilverKris Lounge along the way.

Overall, I enjoyed The Private Room a lot. Size is just nice, ambience is good, delicious F&B, impeccable service, comfortable and safe. The Private Room is open daily from 0530HRS to 0230HRS. When The Private Room is closed, you can still make yourself at home at SilverKris Lounge’s First Class area which is open 24 hours.
