137 Pillars Bangkok Hotel Accommodation
The most important question you have to ask yourself when reading a 137 Pillars Bangkok Hotel review is, “what type of accommodation would I like to book for my holiday.”
The sumptuous rooms and suites here are named after the great royal periods in Thai history, such as Thonburi, Ayutthaya and Sukothai. Elegantly decorated and featuring every modern marvel you could ask for, the suites at 137 Pillars House Bangkok offer all the amenities you expect from a luxury boutique urban retreat.
Skip into your suite and you’ll be greeted by a soothing jazzy piano ballad “I’ll Let You Know” by David Hazeltine. Saunter through the room in a plush bathrobe and slippers while sipping a freshly pulled espresso in your very own wet bar.
Skip through a spacious suite and you’ll find comfy posturepedic ultra plush beds wrapped in 400-thread count Egyptian cotton linen and a selection of pillows such as Cervivalopedic, Companion, Natural Latex, and Buckwheat. I’ve slept in a zillion luxury hotels and the linens and pillows at 137 Pillars Bangkok feel as though you are sleeping on a mattress topped with a mountain of whipped cream.
Signature marble bathrooms feature a large circular bathtub with Himalayan bath salt on-the-ready and walk-in wardrobe with flip-top in-room safe and make-up table. Guests are encouraged to take advantage of the hotel’s “bubbly bath service.” Call your butler an hour before you want to hop in a relaxing bubble bath and they’ll prepare the room for you with dim romantic lighting.

Other noteworthy suite amenities include Bose sound system and media hub, digital IPTV, user-friendly mood lighting system, and separate pantry with private wine cellar and maxi bar with full range of beverages.
The bathroom features a fancy Japanese toilet which has a lid that automatically pops when you stop into the room. One feels like they’re living on a billion dollar space station here!
In the morning relax on your very own spacious outdoor balcony with daybed, rocking chair and coffee table.

- Indulge in a delicious breakfast once a day at any time of day from 7am-5pm. The breakfast items are all top drawer, a la carte mini dishes that allow you to sample a few items each morning.

137 Pillars Bangkok Restaurants
No 137 Pillars Bangkok Hotel review is complete until you’ve had an opportunity to wag your finger down each of the hotel’s marvellous menus.
The luxury boutique hotel in Bangkok offers guests 4 restaurant concepts, from casual all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet to romantic fine dining on the rooftop.
Bangkok Trading Post
The hotel’s breezy all-day restaurant offers a bit of something for everyone, from Thai classics to American steaks, Italian pizza and pasta and a vegan menu.
In the morning enjoy elegantly plated brunch favourites like Eggs Benedict Florentine, Coconut Waffles, Hong Kong Congee, and Toasted Granola Yogurt Bowls.
At lunch and dinner highlights from the Bangkok Trading Post menu include Lanna Pizza, Spaghetti Vongole, Lamb Shawarma, and Brit Fish & Chips.
Bangkok Trading Post’s beautiful outdoor patio is surrounded by a lush tropical garden, koi pond, oversized white birdcage and jubilant elephant statue. Locals love to come here with their dogs in the morning for a frothy cappuccino as the patio is pet friendly.
The hotel’s chic fine-dining restaurant is simply called Nimitr, meaning “Special Dream” in Thai.
Nimitr is located on level 27 and offers elegant seasonally inspired dishes in a beautiful and intimate indoor setting. Guests also have the option of sitting outside to enjoy sweeping views of the Bangkok skyline.
Be sure to have your server show you the large circular glass window inserted into the dining room floor. You can stand over the city and stare down at the ground from 27 floors up!
Premium Northern and Southern hemisphere wines are showcased in the Wine Wall. The restaurant’s beverage program also includes craft cocktails and local beer which can be enjoyed out of a tower with a 4 litre capacity perfect for a German stein-celebratory feast.
During our visit the restaurant was offering a special “Thai Local Herbs and Spices Menu,” which showcased haute cuisine Thai delicacies. Highlights from the must-try menu include Massaman Curry with Lamb, Southern Yellow Curry with Salmon, and Grilled Wagyu Beef with Chakram Leaves.
Jack Bain’s Bar
Perched high above the skyline of Bangkok, Jack Bain’s Bar is an homage to the speakeasy bar with English flair and Thai-inspired cocktails associated with 137 Pillars House Chiang Mai.
Jack Bain’s family lived in the historical teak homestead in Northern Thailand, that today is the legend of The Borneo Trading Company, which dates back to the late 1800s.
With a leather and teak interior and a space that offers astonishing views across downtown Bangkok, Jack Bain’s Bar is a must for craft cocktail lovers.
Cocktails created by Head Bartender Thavon Wongyai form a signature cocktails listing that ranges from colonial era classics such as Old Fashioned and Whisky Sour, through to home-crafted Thai-inspired cocktails using premium locally produced and imported spirits.
While sipping a boozy libation enjoy a few elevated snacks like Pork Croquette All’Arrabbiata, Pulled Pork Nachos, and Seafood Fritto.
The complimentary bar snack is highly addictive, a sweet meets savoury and spicy Tom Yum Popcorn. The bartenders really take care in building each drink, using their own eye-catching hand chipped ice cubes.
