Getting to Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel
The easiest way to get to Novotel airport is via taxi; the hotel is right by the airport so taxis won’t find it difficult to find this hotel. You can also use grab from wherever you are in the city.
You can also catch the ARL City Line, a Metro line that runs Phayathai station near Ratchathewi all the way to the airport.
What to expect
Novotel is a reputable, western brand and this airport takes pride in its customer service and appearance. As you enter the hotel, you will notice how bright the lobby area is, and this leads to The Square restaurant being bright and light too.
The Square has an open plan, with a spread-out buffet area. The wooden tables and huge chairs were very comfortable whilst the staff was friendly and helpful.
All the food we tried was fresh and tasty and we were happy to see a variety of international and local dishes available; even during Easter brunch.
Highlights of the meal
As part of their Easter brunch special, the Novotel Bangkok buffet included half a lobster each; this was covered in hollandaise sauce and served on a bed of truffle pasta (which was amazing). Lamb and ham were available in the carvery section; both tasty and well prepared. They also had a salmon wellington which was one of my favourite things to try.
There was plenty of fresh seafood, sushi, and sashimi; the mussels were excellent. There was a good selection of deli meats but I would have preferred a few more bread options.
As this was brunch, they served some nice breakfast items like eggs Benedict and an egg muffin that I was impressed with. They had a salad bar to make either a western salad or som tam, a spicy Thai salad.
Overall, we loved our experience at Novotel. If you are spending a night here, then definitely eat at The Square. We will visit again if there is a special occasion or event and I would highly recommend the trip. The variety and quality of the food is just as good (if not better) than the hotels in the city centre, but, because of the location of the hotel being around 30 minutes outside of the main tourist hub, you pay much less.
For Easter brunch, we paid 1500B per person whilst other hotels in the heart of Bangkok were charging 2500B+.
We will be back!
